InnoDB is a very popular storage engine for the MySQL database management system. It’s an alternative to the default MyISAM engine and it has got a lot of upsides that make it the preferred engine for lots of script-based web applications, such as Magento and Joomla, which have switched over to InnoDB permanently. For example, adding enormous volumes of data will be much faster with InnoDB, due to the fact that it locks only a single row to complete a specific operation, 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. To put it simply, adding new or editing existent data will either be entirely completed, or will be annulled and the operation will be rolled back in case some problem occurs in the meantime, thus the content that remains in the database won’t be lost.
InnoDB in Cloud Hosting
You can use any PHP-powered app that requires InnoDB in case you have a cloud hosting service with our company, as the MySQL database storage engine is available on our leading-edge cloud platform as standard. During the app installation – manual or automatic, InnoDB will be selected as the default engine and the setup process will continue impeccably if this engine is required. You can run applications which need the MyISAM engine without having any problem as well and, once again, the engine will be selected automatically, so you won’t have to edit any setting manually at any time. On top of that, we’ll also create regular backups of all the MySQL databases that you’ve got in the shared web hosting account, so in case you delete or overwrite something, we can swiftly get it back to the way it was on any of the previous 7 days.
InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can activate a PHP-based application that needs InnoDB with any of our semi-dedicated server plans, because all the accounts are created on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform where the MySQL storage engine is installed. A new MySQL database can be set up in two ways – manually from the Database Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, or automatically – if you take advantage of our single-click application installer tool. Either way, the needed engine will be picked automatically as soon as the app’s activation begins, so you will not need to modify anything manually, no matter if the app needs InnoDB or the more widely used MyISAM. Furthermore, we will always be able to restore any of your databases in case you unintentionally delete one, as we carry out several backups every day, each of which is kept for 1 week.

Once you set up a brand new database and start the app installation process, our system will set the engine for that MySQL database automatically. In this way, you can install different applications simultaneously without having to modify anything on the VPS server. You can create a WordPress-based blog that makes use of the default MySQL engine – MyISAM, and a Magento-driven e-store that makes use of InnoDB, for instance.
