InnoDB is a very popular database engine for the MySQL DBMS. It is an alternative to the default engine – MyISAM, and it has got many advantages that have made it the preferred engine for a lot of open-source script-based software apps, including Joomla and Magento, which have switched over to InnoDB for good. For example, adding enormous volumes of data will be faster with InnoDB, as it locks only one row to perform a certain task, not the entire database table, which makes the engine perfect for scalable applications. InnoDB also supports foreign keys and transactions – these refer to the manner in which the information is tackled. In simpler words, adding new or modifying existent data will either be entirely completed, or will be annulled and the procedure will be rolled back in case a given issue shows up during the process, therefore the content that remains in the database won’t be damaged.

InnoDB in Cloud Hosting

InnoDB is available with all our cloud hosting by default, not upon request or as a paid upgrade, so you can install and run any PHP-driven app that needs the InnoDB database engine without having to deal with any problem as soon as you order your shared web hosting account. InnoDB will be pre-selected as the default engine for a certain database during the app installation process, no matter if you use our single-click installer or create the MySQL database and activate the application manually, provided that the app requires InnoDB instead of the more famous MyISAM engine. We will maintain daily MySQL database backups, so you can rest assured that you’ll never lose any content if you delete a database unintentionally or you overwrite some crucial information – you’ll simply have to notify us and we’ll restore the database back to normal.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can make use of a PHP script-powered application that needs InnoDB with all of our semi-dedicated server packages, as all the accounts are created on our advanced cloud platform where the database storage engine is installed. A new MySQL database can be created in two separate ways – manually through the Database Manager section of the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, or automatically – in case you take advantage of our single-click application installer tool. In either case, the required engine will be selected automatically as soon as the application’s activation starts, so you won’t need to modify anything manually, regardless of whether the application needs InnoDB or the more widely used MyISAM. Also, we will always be able to recover any of your MySQL databases if you unintentionally remove one, as we perform a couple of MySQL database backups every day, each of which is preserved for one week.

InnoDB in VPS Hosting

When you order a virtual private server from our company, you’ll be able to make use of our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel to manage your content. A Hepsia-managed Virtual Private Server will permit you to activate any open-source script-powered software app that needs InnoDB, as the storage engine is part of the default software bundle that will be installed on the Virtual Private Server during its creation. When you create a brand new database via the Control Panel, you will just need to start installing an app – manually or using our application installer tool. InnoDB will be set as the default engine on the condition that the application in question needs it, so you won’t have to do anything else in your account. Analogously, if an application requires MyISAM, it will be automatically set as the default engine for this particular MySQL database.

InnoDB in Dedicated Web Hosting

All dedicated hosting services that are ordered with our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel come with a software bundle that is pre-activated and besides everything else, you will get the InnoDB database engine, so you won’t have to install it manually in case you need to use PHP scripts that require it. All it takes to run such a script is to set up a new database and to start the setup process – as soon as the setup wizard acquires access to the database and starts dumping content in it, InnoDB will be set as the default engine for this database as long as it is the one required by the particular script. You will also be able to install scripts that need MyISAM – the other widely used MySQL engine, so you won’t need to edit any settings on the server. This will enable you to activate different scripts on one single physical server and to use it to its maximum capabilities.
