InnoDB is a very popular storage engine for the MySQL RDBMS. It’s an alternative to the default engine – MyISAM, and it has plenty of advantages that have made it the engine of choice for a lot of script-driven software applications, among them Magento and Joomla, which have shifted over to InnoDB for good. For example, importing enormous amounts of data will be faster with InnoDB, as it locks only one database row to carry out a particular operation, not the entire table, which makes the engine excellent for scalable apps. It also supports foreign keys and database transactions – these refer to the way in which the info is tackled. To put it simply, importing new or modifying existing data will either be thoroughly completed, or will be aborted and the operation will be rolled back in case a given issue appears in the meantime, therefore the content that remains in the database will not be lost.

InnoDB in Cloud Web Hosting

InnoDB is available with all our cloud web hosting packages by default, not as a paid upgrade or upon request, so you’ll be able to activate and manage any PHP-driven application that requires the MySQL storage engine without any difficulty as soon as you open your shared web hosting account. InnoDB will be selected automatically as the default engine for a particular database during the app installation, irrespective of whether you make use of our one-click installer or create the MySQL database and activate the app manually, provided that the application requires it instead of the more popular MyISAM engine. We will create daily database backups, so you can rest assured that you will never lose any data if you erase a database by accident or you overwrite some key info – you simply have to inform us and we will restore your database the way it was.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages include InnoDB and you can make use of all the options offered by this database storage engine with any script-based web application that requires it. It is one of the engines that we have on our cloud platform, so the one that will be selected depends on the prerequisites of the specific application. You will not have to do anything manually in order to enable InnoDB, as it will be set as the default engine when you install an application – whether manually or using our single-click app installer tool. To avoid any risk, we’ll make regular MySQL database backups, so if anything goes wrong following an upgrade or if you remove some data by accident, we’ll be able to restore the database the way it was on any of the previous 7 days.

InnoDB in VPS

All VPS that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel come with InnoDB already activated, so you will be able to take advantage of any open-source script-based web application that requires this database storage engine without having to install anything manually. You can pick Hepsia on the VPS configuration page and your new VPS server will be set up within one hour, so you can log in and start building your web sites right away. When you create a brand new database and start the app activation process, our system will choose the engine for that database automatically. In this way, you can activate various applications at the same time without having to edit anything on the VPS server. You can have a WordPress-powered online journal that uses the default MySQL engine – MyISAM, and a Magento web shop that uses the InnoDB engine, for example.

InnoDB in Dedicated Hosting

Our Hepsia hosting Control Panel is among the features that you can choose on the order page when you buy a dedicated server from us. As this is the most powerful type of web hosting, it’s quite likely that you’ll manage popular sites that will draw many visitors, and since InnoDB is one of the best choices for such sites, we’ll enable it along with all the other software applications that are available with a Hepsia-equipped server. If you create a brand-new MySQL database in your dedicated account, there won’t be any active storage engine until you begin installing a script, whether manually through your Internet browser or using the automatic script installer tool that is available in the hosting Control Panel. The needed engine will be detected automatically and will be assigned to that database, so you can make use of scripts that need InnoDB, as well as ones that need the default MySQL engine, MyISAM, without having to cope with any difficulty.
