InnoDB is a very popular storage engine for the MySQL DBMS. It’s an alternative to the default MyISAM engine and it has got a lot of strengths that make it the preferred engine for a lot of open-source script-based web apps, among them Magento and Joomla, which have moved to InnoDB for good. For example, adding huge amounts of data will be much faster with InnoDB, due to the fact that it locks only a single database row to perform a given operation, not the entire database table, which makes the engine ideal for scalable apps. InnoDB also supports foreign keys and transactions – these refer to the way in which the information is handled. Simply put, importing new or modifying existent data will either be fully completed, or will be canceled and the procedure will be rolled back if some problem appears during the process, hence the content that remains in the database will not be lost.

InnoDB in Shared Web Hosting

You’ll be able to install any script-based web application that needs InnoDB if you’ve got a shared web hosting plan with us, as the storage engine is present on our cutting-edge cloud website hosting platform as standard. During the app installation – manual or automatic, InnoDB will be selected as the default engine and the setup process will proceed impeccably in case this engine is needed. You can run apps which use the MyISAM engine without having to deal with any impediment as well and, again, the engine will be selected automatically, so you won’t have to update anything manually at any moment. On top of that, we will also make regular backups of all the databases that you’ve got in your shared web hosting account, so if you delete or overwrite something, we can swiftly restore it the way it was on any of the past 7 days.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our semi-dedicated hosting plans include InnoDB and you will be able to make the most of all the features offered by this database storage engine with any PHP script-driven web app that requires it. It’s among the engines that are available on our cloud web hosting platform, so the one that will be picked depends on the prerequisites of the given application. You will not have 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’ll make regular backups of all your MySQL databases, so if anything goes wrong after some update or if you erase some content accidentally, we will be able to get your database back to the way it was on any of the past seven days.

InnoDB in VPS Servers

If you choose a VPS server with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, the InnoDB database engine will be an essential part of the software bundle that will be pre-installed on your server before we give it to you. You won’t have to activate anything manually and you’ll be able to install and run any PHP script-based app that needs InnoDB as soon as your VPS is up and running, which takes no more than 60 minutes after the order submission procedure itself. A couple of engines are available, so every time you set up a MySQL database using the Hepsia Control Panel, a particular engine will be picked when the app activation process starts and our system will recognize which engine is required by the app in question. If you need MyISAM, for example, you won’t have to do anything different than installing the preferred application, whether manually or using our application installer tool.

InnoDB in Dedicated Servers

Our Hepsia hosting Control Panel is among the options that you can choose on the server order page when you buy a dedicated server from our company. As this is the most powerful kind of hosting, it is quite likely that you will run highly popular websites that will attract plenty of people, and since InnoDB is among the very best options for such Internet sites, we will enable it along with all the other software applications that come with a Hepsia-managed server. If you set up a brand-new MySQL database in your account, there won’t be any active database engine till you begin installing an open-source PHP script, whether manually through your browser or using the automatic script installer tool that is included in the hosting Control Panel. The necessary engine will be detected automatically and will be set for the database in question, so you can activate scripts that require InnoDB, as well as ones that need MyISAM – the default MySQL engine, without the need to deal with any complication.
