InnoDB is a popular database engine for the MySQL RDBMS. It’s an alternative to the default MyISAM engine and it has numerous advantages that have made it the preferred engine for lots of PHP script-based software apps, such as Magento and Joomla, which have switched to InnoDB for good. For instance, importing immense amounts of data will be much faster with InnoDB, as it locks only one database row to perform a given operation, not the entire database table, which makes the engine ideal for scalable apps. It also supports foreign keys and transactions – these refer to the manner in which the information is treated. Put simply, adding new or updating existing data will either be thoroughly completed, or will be canceled and the procedure will be rolled back if a certain problem appears during the process, which is why the content that remains in the database won’t be damaged.

InnoDB in Cloud Web Hosting

InnoDB is available with all our cloud web hosting by default, not upon request or as a paid upgrade, so you will be able to install and manage any PHP-powered application that requires the InnoDB storage engine without encountering any difficulty as soon as you open your shared web hosting account. InnoDB will be selected automatically as the default engine for a specific database during the app activation process, regardless of whether you take advantage of our one-click installer or create the database and set up the app manually, provided that the application requires it instead of the more popular MyISAM engine. We’ll store daily backups of all your MySQL databases, so you can rest assured that you’ll never lose any content in case you delete a database by mistake or you overwrite some crucial information – you will simply have to inform us and we will restore the database the way it was.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you create a brand-new MySQL database through the Control Panel coming with each of our semi-dedicated server packages and you begin installing a PHP script-powered web app either manually or using our 1-click app installer, the database storage engine will be set automatically depending on the given app’s requirements. Since InnoDB is present on the cloud platform where your new semi-dedicated account will be set up, it will be set as the default engine for each application that requires it without any manual action needed on your end at any time. To avoid any chance of losing data if you update an app or if you delete a database by mistake, we’ll carry out backups of all your MySQL databases each and every day, so if something happens, we can recover your content.

InnoDB in VPS Servers

If you select a VPS server with our Hepsia Control Panel, the InnoDB database engine will be included in the default software bundle that will be installed on your VPS server before we hand it over to you. You will not have to activate anything manually and you will be able to install and use any PHP script-powered application that requires InnoDB when your VPS is up and running, which takes no more than sixty minutes after the order submission itself. A number of engines are offered, so every time you create a database via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, a specific engine will be selected when the app activation process starts and our system will recognize the engine that is required by the app in question. In case you need to use MyISAM, for example, you will not have to do anything different than installing the chosen application, whether manually or using our app installer tool.

InnoDB in Dedicated Servers

Our Hepsia Control Panel is among the features which you can select on the order page when you buy a dedicated server from our company. Since this is the most powerful kind of web hosting, it’s rather likely that you’ll run very popular sites that will attract lots of visitors, and since InnoDB is among the very best choices for such sites, we’ll install it along with all the other software applications that are available with a Hepsia-managed dedicated server. When you set up a new database in your account, there won’t be any activated database storage engine till you start installing an open-source script, whether manually through your web browser or using the automatic scripts installation tool that is integrated into the hosting Control Panel. The needed engine will be detected automatically and will be set for that database, so you can install scripts that require InnoDB, as well as ones that require MyISAM, the default MySQL engine, without having to deal with any obstacle.
