InnoDB in Shared Website Hosting
InnoDB is available with all our Linux shared website hosting by default, not as a paid upgrade or upon request, so you will be able to install and run any PHP script-powered application which requires the InnoDB storage engine without the need to deal with any difficulty once you activate your shared hosting account. InnoDB will be selected automatically as the default engine for a specific database during the app installation process, irrespective of whether you use our single-click installer or create the database and install the app manually, as long as the application requires InnoDB instead of the more popular MyISAM engine. We will generate regular backups of all your databases, so you can be sure that you will never lose any content in case you erase a database by mistake or you overwrite some important info – you’ll just need to get in touch with us and we will restore everything the way it was.
InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you create a brand new MySQL database through the Control Panel coming with each of our semi-dedicated server plans and you start installing a PHP script-driven web application either manually or using our one-click app installer, the database storage engine will be set automatically on the basis of the requirements of the app in question. Since InnoDB is present on the cloud website hosting platform where your new semi-dedicated hosting account will be created, it will be set as the default engine for any app that requires it without any manual intervention needed on your end at any moment. To prevent any risk of losing info if you update an application or if you delete a database by accident, we’ll make a backup of all your databases each and every day, so if something goes wrong, we can rescue your data.
