InnoDB is a popular storage engine for the MySQL DBMS. It’s an alternative to the default MyISAM engine and it has a lot of strengths that make it the engine of choice for plenty of script-driven software applications, among them Magento and Joomla, which have switched to InnoDB for good. For example, adding immense amounts of data will be much faster with InnoDB, because it locks only one database row to complete a task, not the entire database table, which makes the engine perfect for scalable applications. It also supports foreign keys and transactions – these refer to the manner in which the info is treated. Simply put, adding new or editing existent data will either be fully completed, or will be canceled and the procedure will be rolled back in case any problem occurs during the process, which is why the content that remains in the database will not be lost.

InnoDB in Cloud Web Hosting

InnoDB is available with all our Linux cloud web hosting by default, not as a paid upgrade or upon request, so you will be able to activate and run any PHP-based software app which requires the InnoDB storage engine without having any difficulty as soon as you open your shared website hosting account. InnoDB will be selected automatically as the default engine for a certain MySQL database during the app activation process, irrespective of whether you take advantage of our 1-click installation tool or create the database and install the app manually, on the condition that the app requires it instead of the more famous MyISAM engine. We will carry out daily database backups, so you can be certain that you won’t ever lose any content in case you erase a database accidentally or you overwrite some crucial information – you just need to inform us and we will restore the database back to normal.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting

InnoDB comes with all our Linux semi-dedicated packages by default, so once you buy a new account, you can go ahead and activate any PHP script-based app that needs this database storage engine. A number of engines are pre-installed on our cloud website hosting platform, so when you create a brand new MySQL database and begin installing an app manually, or decide to take advantage of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel-integrated app installer, the engine for the database will be chosen in accordance with the given app’s prerequisites. This will permit you to activate and manage InnoDB-specific applications without running into any complication and without the need to update any settings in your account. To avoid any risk, we will always keep a seven-day-old backup of all your databases, so if you delete or edit any content unintentionally, we can easily rescue it.

InnoDB in VPS Web Hosting

When you obtain a virtual private server from us, you will be able to take advantage of our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel to manage your web content. A Hepsia-managed Virtual Private Server will permit you to install any script-powered software application that requires InnoDB, as this MySQL database engine is an essential part of the software bundle that will be installed on the server during its configuration. When you set up a new database through the Control Panel, you will just have to start installing an app – manually or using our application installer tool. InnoDB will be set as the default engine in case the app in question needs it, so you will not need to do anything else in your VPS account. Likewise, if a given app requires MyISAM, it will be automatically set as the default engine for this concrete database.

InnoDB in Dedicated Servers Hosting

InnoDB comes as standard with all dedicated servers hosting ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. It’s an integral part of the default software bundle that will be pre-installed on all Hepsia-equipped dedicated servers, so once your machine is ready, you’ll be able to log in and to activate any kind of script-based web application that needs this particular database storage engine. When you set up a new database via the Control Panel, there won’t be any active engine till you begin installing an app. As soon as the app installation wizard begins dumping information in the newly created database, the engine will be picked automatically on the basis of the prerequisites of the specific app, so you can use both MyISAM and InnoDB without the need to select either one of them specifically at any moment. Therefore, you can make use of a wide collection of apps for your websites.
