InnoDB is a popular database storage engine for the MySQL RDBMS. It is an alternative to the default engine – MyISAM, and it has numerous strengths that have made it the preferred engine for plenty of script-powered web applications, including Joomla and Magento, which have switched to InnoDB for good. For instance, importing immense volumes of data will be faster with InnoDB, due to the fact that it locks only a single database row to perform a certain operation, not the entire table, which makes the engine ideal for scalable applications. InnoDB also supports foreign keys and database transactions – these refer to the way in which the information is treated. Simply put, appending new or editing existing data will either be fully completed, or will be aborted and the procedure will be rolled back if a given issue occurs during the process, so the content that remains in the database will not be damaged.

InnoDB in Cloud Hosting

InnoDB is offered with all our Linux cloud packages by default, not upon request or as a paid upgrade, so you can activate and manage any open-source script-driven software application which requires the storage engine without having any difficulty as soon as you order your shared web hosting account. InnoDB will be pre-selected as the default engine for a certain MySQL database during the app activation, no matter if you use our 1-click installation tool or create the database and set up the application manually, as long as the application requires InnoDB instead of the more popular MyISAM engine. We will create daily MySQL database backups, so you can be sure that you won’t ever lose any data in case you erase a database accidentally or you overwrite some important information – you simply have to touch base with us and we will restore your data back to normal.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting

InnoDB comes with all our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages by default, so the moment you create a new semi-dedicated account, you can move on and activate any PHP-driven web application that requires this MySQL database engine. A couple of engines are installed on our cloud platform, so when you create a brand-new database and start installing an application manually, or opt to take advantage of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel-integrated app installer, the engine for the database will be set depending on the prerequisites of the particular app. This will allow you to activate and run InnoDB-specific apps without having any problem and without the need to modify any settings in your account. To be on the safe side, we’ll always keep a one-week-old backup of all your MySQL databases, so if you erase or alter any content by accident, we can quickly rescue it.

InnoDB in VPS

If you pick a virtual private server with our Hepsia Control Panel, the InnoDB storage engine will be an integral part of the default software package that will be installed on your VPS server before we hand it over to you. You won’t need to configure anything manually and you’ll be able to install and use any open-source script-driven web app that needs InnoDB once your Virtual Private Server is ready, which takes no more than one hour after the order submission procedure itself. A couple of engines are offered, so whenever you set up a MySQL database via the Hepsia Control Panel, a specific engine will be picked when the app installation commences and our system will automatically detect which engine is required by the application in question. In case you need to use MyISAM, for instance, you won’t need to do anything different than installing the preferred app, whether manually or using our application installer.

InnoDB in Dedicated Hosting

Our Hepsia Control Panel is among the features which you can choose on the order page when you buy a dedicated server from us. Since this is the most powerful kind of hosting, it is rather likely that you’ll manage very popular sites that will attract a lot of individuals, and since InnoDB is one of the very best choices for such Internet sites, we will activate it along with all the other software apps that are available with a Hepsia-equipped server. If you set up a brand-new MySQL database in your dedicated server account, there won’t be any active storage engine until you begin installing a PHP script, whether manually via your web browser or using the automatic script installer that is included in the Control Panel. The necessary engine will be recognized and will be set for the database in question, so you can install scripts that require InnoDB, as well as ones that require MyISAM, the default MySQL engine, without needing to cope with any problem.
