InnoDB is a popular storage engine for the MySQL DBMS. It’s an alternative to the default MyISAM engine and it has plenty of pluses that have made it the preferred engine for numerous open-source script-powered web applications, including Joomla and Magento, which have switched over to InnoDB for good. For instance, adding enormous amounts of data will be faster with InnoDB, as it locks only one database row to accomplish an operation, not the entire table, which makes the engine excellent for scalable apps. It also supports foreign keys and transactions – these refer to the manner in which the information is treated. To put it simply, importing new or updating existing data will either be fully completed, or will be annulled and the procedure will be rolled back in case any problem appears in the meantime, thus the content that remains in the database will not be lost.

InnoDB in Cloud Web Hosting

Any script-driven software application that needs InnoDB will run impeccably on our advanced cloud platform and the MySQL database storage engine comes with all our cloud web hosting plans. Whenever you create a database manually or our app installer tool creates one automatically and an app installation process is started, the engine that the database in question will use will be selected in accordance with the app’s specifications without having to configure any setting in your web hosting account. InnoDB will be chosen automatically for any app that requires this specific engine and you’ll be able to take advantage of its full potential. We will maintain regular backups of your content, so in case you accidentally delete a MySQL database that you need or you overwrite certain parts of it, we’ll be able to restore the database the way it was just a couple of hours ago.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting services come with InnoDB and you can take full advantage of all the options offered by this storage engine with any PHP-powered app that needs it. InnoDB is among the engines that are available on our cloud hosting platform, so the one that will be selected depends on the prerequisites of the specific application. You won’t have to do anything manually to enable InnoDB, as it will be set as the default engine whenever you install an app – whether manually or using our 1-click application installer. To be on the safe side, we will maintain daily MySQL database backups, so if anything goes wrong after some update or if you erase some data unintentionally, we’ll be able to get your database back to the way it was on any of the previous seven days.

InnoDB in VPS

All VPS that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel come with InnoDB pre-installed, so you will be able to make use of any PHP script-driven software app that requires this particular MySQL storage engine without needing to install anything manually. You can choose Hepsia on the VPS order page and your brand new VPS server will be set up within 1 hour, so you can sign in and start building your Internet sites right away. Once you set up a brand-new MySQL database and start the app activation process, our system will pick the engine for this MySQL database automatically. Thus, you can run different apps simultaneously without editing anything on the server. You can set up a WordPress-based personal weblog that makes use of MyISAM – the default MySQL engine, and a Magento-based e-shop that uses the InnoDB engine, for example.

InnoDB in Dedicated Hosting

All dedicated hosting services that are ordered with our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel include a software package that’s pre-activated and among everything else, you’ll get the InnoDB database engine, so you won’t have to install it manually in case you wish to run open-source PHP scripts that require it. All it takes to run such a script is to create a new MySQL database and to begin the installation – as soon as the installer wizard gains access to the database and begins entering content into it, InnoDB will be set as the default MySQL engine for this database on the condition that it is the one needed by the script. You’ll also be able to activate scripts that require MyISAM – the other very popular MySQL engine, so you won’t need to modify any settings on the server. This will enable you to activate a variety of scripts on a single physical server and to use it to its maximum potential.
