InnoDB is a popular storage engine for the MySQL DBMS. It’s an alternative to the default MyISAM engine and it has got numerous strong sides which make it the preferred engine for a lot of PHP script-powered web applications, among them Joomla and Magento, which have switched over to InnoDB for good. For example, adding huge amounts of data will be faster with InnoDB, due to the fact that it locks only a single row to perform a particular task, not the entire database table, which makes the engine ideal for scalable applications. InnoDB also supports foreign keys and transactions – these refer to the way in which the data is handled. Put simply, adding new or editing existent data will either be thoroughly completed, or will be aborted and the procedure will be rolled back in case a certain issue occurs in the meantime, which is why the content that remains in the database won’t be damaged.

InnoDB in Website Hosting

You can run any PHP-powered application that requires InnoDB in case you have a Linux website hosting package with us, as the MySQL database storage engine is present on our advanced cloud web hosting platform by default. During the app installation – manual or automatic, InnoDB will be selected as the default engine and the setup process will continue flawlessly if this engine is required. You can install applications that need the MyISAM engine without any problem as well and, once again, the engine will be pre-selected, so you will not have to configure anything manually at any moment. What’s more, we’ll also make daily backups of all the MySQL databases that you have in the shared web hosting account, so if you delete or overwrite anything, we can swiftly restore it the way it was on any of the previous 7 days.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our Linux semi-dedicated packages support InnoDB and you can make use of all the options offered by this MySQL database storage engine with any open-source script-based web application that requires it. InnoDB is one of the engines that we have on our cloud website hosting platform, so the one that will be picked depends on the prerequisites of the application in question. You won’t need to do anything manually to activate InnoDB, because it will be set as the default engine whenever you install an app – whether manually or using our 1-click application installer tool. To be on the safe side, we will make regular backups of all your databases, so if something goes wrong after some update or if you delete some data by mistake, we will be able to restore your database the way it was on any of the past seven days.

InnoDB in Dedicated Web Hosting

InnoDB is available as standard with all Linux dedicated servers hosting packages that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. It is an essential part of the software package that will be pre-installed on all Hepsia-equipped dedicated servers, so as soon as your physical machine is up and running, you will be able to sign in and to activate any kind of PHP script-based software app that requires this database engine. When you create a new database through the Control Panel, there won’t be any activated engine till you begin installing an app. Once the app setup wizard starts inserting data into the newly created database, the engine will be chosen automatically in accordance with the given app’s prerequisites, so you can use both InnoDB and MyISAM without the need to select either one explicitly at any point. Therefore, you can use an extensive range of apps for your Internet sites.
