InnoDB is a very popular database engine for the MySQL RDBMS. It’s an alternative to the default MyISAM engine and it has got a lot of upsides that have made it the engine of choice for plenty of script-driven software applications, including Magento and Joomla, which have switched over to InnoDB permanently. For example, importing huge data volumes will be much faster with InnoDB, since it locks only a single row to perform a task, not the entire database table, which makes the engine perfect for scalable applications. InnoDB also supports foreign keys and database transactions – these refer to the manner in which the info is tackled. Simply put, adding new or updating existing data will either be thoroughly completed, or will be aborted and the procedure will be rolled back in case some problem shows up during the process, which is why the content that remains in the database won’t be damaged.

InnoDB in Cloud Hosting

You can install any PHP script-based web application that needs InnoDB if you’ve got a Linux cloud hosting with us, as the storage engine is available on our innovative cloud hosting platform as standard. Throughout the app installation – manual or automatic, InnoDB will be selected as the default engine and the setup will proceed impeccably if this engine is required. You can run applications which use the MyISAM engine without the need to deal with any problem as well and, again, the engine will be pre-selected, so you will not need to change anything manually at any point. On top of that, we will also make regular backups of all the MySQL databases that you have in the shared web hosting account, so if you delete or overwrite something, we can easily restore it the way it was on any of the previous 7 days.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our Linux semi-dedicated servers come with InnoDB and you can take full advantage of all the features offered by this database engine with any PHP script-driven application that needs it. It is among the engines that are available on our cloud hosting platform, so the one that will be picked depends on the requirements of the given app. You won’t need to do anything manually in order to activate InnoDB, because it will be set as the default engine when you install an app – whether manually or using our one-click app installer tool. To be on the safe side, we will make daily backups of all your databases, so if anything goes wrong after an upgrade or if you remove some data accidentally, we’ll be able to restore the database the way it was on any of the previous seven days.

InnoDB in Dedicated Servers

InnoDB is available by default with all Linux dedicated service that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It’s part of the default software bundle that will be pre-installed on all Hepsia-equipped dedicated servers, so once your machine is up and running, you will be able to sign in and to install any kind of open-source script-powered app that requires this particular database engine. When you create a new database via the hosting Control Panel, there won’t be any activated engine until you begin installing an app. As soon as the app activation wizard begins importing content into the newly created database, the engine will be selected automatically based on the prerequisites of the respective application, so you can use both MyISAM and InnoDB without the need to select either of them explicitly at any point. In this way, you can make use of an extensive variety of applications for your websites.
