InnoDB is a popular storage engine for the MySQL relational database management system. It is an alternative to the default engine – MyISAM, and it has a lot of strong sides which have made it the preferred engine for plenty of open-source script-driven software apps, such as Joomla and Magento, which have switched to InnoDB for good. For example, adding immense amounts of data will be faster with InnoDB, due to the fact that it locks only a single row to complete a particular task, not the entire table, which makes the engine ideal for scalable applications. InnoDB also supports foreign keys and transactions – these refer to the way in which the info is tackled. To put it simply, adding new or editing existent data will either be fully completed, or will be canceled and the operation will be rolled back if a given issue shows up in the meantime, which means that the content that remains in the database will not be damaged.

InnoDB in Cloud Hosting

You will be able to run any open-source script-driven software app that needs InnoDB in case you’ve got a Linux cloud package with our company, as the MySQL database storage engine is present on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform by default. During the app activation – manual or automatic, InnoDB will be selected as the default engine and the setup process will proceed impeccably in case this engine is required. You can run applications which need the MyISAM engine without the need to deal with any obstacle as well and, once again, the engine will be selected automatically, so you will not need to edit any setting manually at any moment. In addition, we will also generate daily backups of all the databases that you’ve got in the shared web hosting account, so in case you erase or overwrite something, we can swiftly get it back to the way it was on any of the past 7 days.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can install an open-source script-driven software app that requires InnoDB with all of our semi-dedicated server packages, since all the accounts are created on our avant-garde cloud hosting platform where the MySQL storage engine is installed. A new MySQL database can be set up in two separate ways – manually through the Database Manager section of the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, or automatically – if you use our 1-click application installer. In either case, the required engine will be chosen automatically the moment the activation of the application starts, so you will not have to change anything manually, regardless of whether the app requires InnoDB or the more widely used MyISAM. On top of that, we’ll always be able to retrieve any of your MySQL databases if you accidentally erase one, as we perform a couple of backups every day, each of which is kept for seven days.

InnoDB in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Our Hepsia hosting Control Panel is one of the options which you can select on the order page when you purchase a dedicated server from our company. Since this is the most powerful kind of website hosting, it’s rather likely that you will manage highly popular Internet sites that will attract lots of visitors, and since InnoDB is among the very best choices for such Internet sites, we’ll enable it together with all the other software apps that are offered with a Hepsia-managed dedicated server. If you set up a brand new MySQL database in your account, there won’t be any activated MySQL database storage engine until you start installing a PHP script, whether manually via your Internet browser or using the automatic script installation tool that is included in the Control Panel. The required engine will be automatically detected and will be set for that database, so you can use scripts that need InnoDB, as well as ones that require the default MySQL engine – MyISAM, without needing to cope with any problem.
