InnoDB is a popular database storage engine for the MySQL relational database management system. It’s an alternative to the default engine – MyISAM, and it has got a number of strengths which make it the engine of choice for plenty of PHP-powered apps, including Magento and Joomla, which have moved to InnoDB for good. For example, importing large volumes of data will be faster with InnoDB, since it locks only one row to perform a particular task, not the entire table, which makes the engine excellent for scalable apps. InnoDB also supports foreign keys and transactions – these refer to the way in which the data is tackled. Put simply, appending new or updating existing data will either be entirely completed, or will be canceled and the procedure will be rolled back in case a given issue occurs during the process, so the content that remains in the database will not be lost.

InnoDB in Web Hosting

InnoDB is offered with all our web hosting by default, not as a paid upgrade or upon request, so you’ll be able to install and manage any PHP script-driven application which requires the database storage engine without any problem as soon as you order your shared hosting account. InnoDB will be pre-selected as the default engine for a particular database during the app installation, no matter if you take advantage of our single-click installer or create the MySQL database and install the application manually, provided that the application requires it instead of the more famous MyISAM engine. We’ll create regular backups of all your MySQL databases, so you can rest assured that you’ll never lose any content in case you erase a database unintentionally or you overwrite some crucial info – you’ll just have to touch base with us and we’ll restore your content the way it was.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our semi-dedicated hosting packages support InnoDB and you’ll be able to use all the features of this storage engine with any open-source script-powered application that requires it. It is among the engines that are available on our cloud web hosting platform, so the one that will be picked depends on the requirements of the app in question. You won’t have to do anything manually in order to activate InnoDB, because it will be set as the default engine when you install an application – whether manually or using our one-click application installer. To be on the safe side, we will create daily backups of all your databases, so if something goes wrong after an update or if you delete some content accidentally, we’ll be able to restore the database the way it was on any of the previous seven days.

InnoDB in VPS Web Hosting

All Linux VPS web hosting that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel come with InnoDB pre-activated, so you will be able to make use of any script-driven web app that needs the database storage engine without needing to configure anything manually. You can choose Hepsia on the VPS configuration page and your new VPS server will be ready within the hour, so you can log in and start creating your Internet sites straight away. When you create a brand-new MySQL database and start the app installation process, our system will set the engine for that database automatically. In this way, you can use different apps at the same time without having to modify anything on the VPS server. You can set up a WordPress-driven blog that uses the default MySQL engine – MyISAM, and a Magento e-shop that uses the InnoDB engine, for example.

InnoDB in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Our Hepsia Control Panel is one of the features which you can select on the order form when you purchase a dedicated server from our company. Since this is the most powerful type of hosting, it is rather likely that you’ll manage highly popular websites that will draw a lot of individuals, and since InnoDB is among the very best choices for such sites, we’ll activate it together with all the other software apps that come with a Hepsia-managed server. If you create a new database in your dedicated account, there won’t be any activated MySQL storage engine until you begin installing a PHP script, whether manually via your Internet browser or using the automatic scripts installer tool that is available in the hosting Control Panel. The needed engine will be recognized automatically and will be assigned to the database in question, so you can install scripts that need InnoDB, as well as ones that require the default MySQL engine – MyISAM, without experiencing any complication.
