InnoDB is a popular database storage engine for the MySQL RDBMS. It’s an alternative to the default MyISAM engine and it has got a lot of pluses that have made it the preferred engine for numerous open-source script-driven software apps, including Joomla™ and Magento, which have shifted over to InnoDB for good. For example, adding enormous amounts of data will be faster with InnoDB, due to the fact that it locks only a single database row to carry out a particular task, not the entire table, which makes the engine excellent for scalable applications. It also supports foreign keys and transactions – these refer to the manner in which the information is handled. To put it simply, appending new or modifying existing data will either be thoroughly completed, or will be canceled and the operation will be rolled back if some problem appears during the process, therefore the content that remains in the database will not be damaged.
InnoDB in Cloud Hosting
While InnoDB is either not available or a paid upgrade with other web hosting companies, it is an integral part of the default set of features that we are offering with our cloud hosting
packages. In case you wish to make use of an open-source script-based web app that needs InnoDB particularly, in order to be activated and to function properly, you won’t have to deal with any difficulties as the InnoDB database storage engine is available on our custom-built cloud website hosting platform. Regardless of whether you create a brand-new MySQL database and install an application manually or make use of our 1-click app installer instrument, InnoDB will be selected automatically by our system as the default engine if the given app requires it instead of MyISAM. In addition to the remarkable database crash recovery offered by InnoDB, we also generate regular database backups, so that we can swiftly restore any MySQL database in your shared website hosting account.
InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Servers
InnoDB is available with each of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting plans
by default, so once you obtain a new account, you can go ahead and activate any open-source script-based web application that requires this database storage engine. A number of engines are pre-installed on our cloud hosting platform, so when you set up a new database and start installing an app manually, or opt to use the Hepsia hosting Control Panel-integrated application installer, the engine for the database will be selected in accordance with the requirements of the specific application. This will allow you to install and manage InnoDB-specific applications without any impediment and without configuring any settings in your semi-dedicated account. To take no chances, we will always keep a 7-day-old backup of all your databases, so if you erase or edit any content accidentally, we can swiftly restore it.
InnoDB in VPS Servers
All Linux VPS plans
that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel come with InnoDB already installed, so you will be able to run any PHP-powered software application that needs this particular storage engine without having to configure anything manually. You can choose Hepsia on the VPS order page and your brand new server will be set up within the hour, so you can log in and begin building your sites straight away. Once you set up a new database and start the app installation process, our system will set the engine for that MySQL database automatically. Thus, you can activate various applications at the same time without the need to modify anything on the server. You can set up a WordPress-powered personal weblog that uses MyISAM – the default MySQL engine, and a Magento e-store that makes use of InnoDB, for example.
InnoDB in Dedicated Servers

, you’ll be able to pick any of the 3 Control Panels that we are offering – DirectAdmin, cPanel and Hepsia. Any dedicated server ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel comes with InnoDB pre-installed, so you will not need to activate this storage engine manually so as to be able to run script-based apps that need it. InnoDB is used by scalable apps and since a dedicated server will provide you with all the resources that you need to manage large-scale websites, it’s very likely that you’ll resort to InnoDB. You’ll be able to make use of other engines as well, so if a given app requires MyISAM rather than InnoDB, you will not come across any impediment while running it. The engine that will be used will be automatically recognized once the app installation begins, so you will not have to configure any settings manually at any moment.
