InnoDB is a popular database storage engine for the MySQL relational database management system. It’s an alternative to the default MyISAM engine and it has got lots of advantages which have made it the preferred engine for numerous open-source script-driven software apps, such as Magento and Joomla, which have switched to InnoDB for good. For example, importing huge volumes of data will be faster with InnoDB, since it locks only one row to carry out a specific operation, not the entire table, which makes the engine perfect for scalable applications. It also supports foreign keys and transactions – these refer to the way in which the information is handled. In simpler words, importing new or modifying existing data will either be thoroughly completed, or will be aborted and the operation will be rolled back if any problem shows up during the process, thus the content that remains in the database will not be damaged.

InnoDB in Shared Website Hosting

You’ll be able to activate any open-source script-powered web app that needs InnoDB in case you’ve got a Linux shared website hosting plan with us, as the MySQL storage engine is available on our advanced cloud platform by default. During the app activation – manual or automatic, InnoDB will be selected as the default engine and the setup will proceed impeccably if this engine is required. You can install apps which use the MyISAM engine without encountering any impediment as well and, once again, the engine will be pre-selected, so you will not have to change any setting manually at any point. What’s more, we will also create daily backups of all the databases that you’ve got in your account, so if you delete or overwrite anything, we can easily restore it the way it was on any of the past seven days.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Servers

InnoDB is available with all our semi-dedicated plans by default, so as soon as you order a new semi-dedicated account, you can move on and activate any script-powered app that needs this MySQL database storage engine. A couple of engines are installed on our cloud website hosting platform, so when you set up a brand new MySQL database and begin installing an application manually, or decide to make use of the Hepsia Control Panel-integrated application installer, the engine for the database will be picked depending on the respective app’s prerequisites. This will permit you to install and run InnoDB-specific apps without running into any impediment and without having to modify any settings in your semi-dedicated account. To be on the safe side, we will always have a 1-week-old backup of all your databases, so if you delete or edit any content by mistake, we can quickly recover it.

InnoDB in VPS Servers

When you obtain a VPS server from our company, you will be able to take full advantage of our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel to manage your web content. A Hepsia-managed VPS will permit you to run any script-driven application which needs InnoDB, as the MySQL storage engine is an integral part of the software package that will be pre-installed on your Virtual Private Server during its creation. When you set up a brand new MySQL database through the hosting Control Panel, you will just need to start installing an application – manually or using our app installer. InnoDB will be set as the default engine as long as the application in question requires it, so you won’t need to do anything else in your account. In the same manner, if a given app requires MyISAM, it will be automatically set as the default engine for this specific database.

InnoDB in Dedicated Servers

InnoDB comes as standard with all Linux dedicated web hosting plans ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. It is part of the default software package that will be installed on all Hepsia-equipped dedicated servers, so once your machine is set up, you’ll be able to sign in and to install a various open-source script-driven application that needs this MySQL storage engine. If you create a new database via the Control Panel, there won’t be any activated engine till you start installing an application. As soon as the app activation wizard begins inserting content into the newly created database, the engine will be selected automatically in accordance with the specific app’s requirements, so you can use both InnoDB and MyISAM without having to select either of them specifically at any moment. Therefore, you can make use of an immense variety of apps for your websites.
