InnoDB is a very popular database engine for the MySQL database management system. It is an alternative to the default MyISAM engine and it has got lots of upsides that have made it the engine of choice for plenty of script-powered software apps, such as Magento and Joomla, which have switched over to InnoDB for good. For example, importing huge data volumes will be faster with InnoDB, since it locks only a single database row to execute a given operation, not the entire table, which makes the engine ideal for scalable apps. It also supports foreign keys and database transactions – these refer to the way in which the data is tackled. Simply put, importing new or editing existing data will either be entirely completed, or will be annulled and the operation will be rolled back if a certain issue shows up in the meantime, therefore the content that remains in the database will not be lost.

InnoDB in Shared Hosting

You can make use of any open-source script-driven application that requires InnoDB in case you have a Linux shared hosting with our company, as the storage engine is present on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform as standard. Throughout the app activation – manual or automatic, InnoDB will be selected as the default engine and the setup will continue impeccably in case this engine is needed. You can activate applications that require the MyISAM engine without having to deal with any impediment as well and, once again, the engine will be selected automatically, so you won’t need to change anything manually at any moment. On top of that, we’ll also perform daily backups of all the MySQL databases that you’ve got in the shared hosting account, so in case you delete or overwrite something, we can quickly restore it the way it was on any of the previous seven days.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting include InnoDB and you can take full advantage of all the options offered by this database engine with any script-based software app that requires it. It’s one of the engines that are available on our cloud web hosting platform, so the one that will be selected depends on the prerequisites of the particular app. You will not need to do anything manually in order to enable InnoDB, as it will be set as the default engine when you install an app – whether manually or using our one-click application installer tool. To avoid any risk, we’ll store daily MySQL database backups, so if anything goes wrong after some update or if you delete some content accidentally, we will be able to restore the database the way it was on any of the previous 7 days.

InnoDB in VPS

All VPS packages that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel come with InnoDB already activated, so you will be able to use any script-driven app that needs the database engine without having to install anything manually. You can select Hepsia on the VPS order form and your new VPS server will be up and running within the hour, so you can sign in and begin creating your websites right away. Once you create a brand new database and begin the app activation process, our system will choose the engine for this MySQL database automatically. Thus, you can use different apps at the same time without changing anything on the VPS server. You can set up a WordPress-driven personal weblog that makes use of MyISAM – the default MySQL engine, and a Magento web shop that uses the InnoDB engine, for example.

InnoDB in Dedicated Hosting

InnoDB is available by default with all Linux dedicated servers hosting packages ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. It is included in the default software package that we install on all Hepsia-managed dedicated servers, so once your physical machine is set up, you will be able to sign in and to activate any kind of open-source script-based software application that needs this particular database engine. When you create a new database via the hosting Control Panel, there won’t be any active engine till you start installing an app. Once the app activation wizard begins entering content into the database, the engine will be selected automatically on the basis of the requirements of the application in question, so you can use both InnoDB and MyISAM without selecting either one of them specifically at any moment. In this way, you can use a broad variety of apps for your sites.
