InnoDB is a very popular database storage engine for the MySQL relational database management system. It is an alternative to the default engine – MyISAM, and it has got plenty of upsides that have made it the preferred engine for numerous PHP script-powered software applications, among them Magento and Joomla, which have switched over to InnoDB permanently. For instance, adding immense volumes of data will be faster with InnoDB, since it locks only a single row to perform a specific operation, not the entire database table, which makes the engine perfect for scalable apps. It also supports foreign keys and database transactions – these refer to the manner in which the information is handled. Simply put, importing new or updating existent data will either be thoroughly completed, or will be canceled and the procedure will be rolled back if some issue appears during the process, hence the content that remains in the database won’t be damaged.

InnoDB in Cloud Website Hosting

While InnoDB is either not available or a paid upgrade with other web hosting providers, it is included in the standard set of features that we offer with our cloud website hosting packages. In case you want to make use of a PHP-powered web application that requires InnoDB in particular, in order to be installed and to operate properly, you won’t face any impediments as the database storage engine is available on our custom-built cloud platform. Regardless of whether you set up a brand new database and install an app manually or take advantage of our 1-click application installer tool, InnoDB will be selected automatically by our platform as the default engine if the given app needs InnoDB rather than MyISAM. Besides the exceptional database crash recovery offered by InnoDB, we also maintain daily backups of all databases, so we can easily recover any MySQL database in your shared website hosting account.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our Linux semi-dedicated servers come with InnoDB and you can take full advantage of all the features offered by this storage engine with any script-based web application that needs it. It’s among the engines that are available on our cloud web hosting platform, so the one that will be selected depends on the prerequisites of the given application. You won’t have to do anything manually to activate InnoDB, since it will be set as the default engine whenever you install an application – whether manually or using our one-click application installer tool. To be on the safe side, we will perform regular backups of all your databases, so if something goes wrong following some update or if you erase some data accidentally, we will be able to get your database back to the way it was on any of the previous seven days.

InnoDB in VPS Servers

In case our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel is selected during the signup process for your new VPS plans , InnoDB will be activated on the VPS server along with other required software, so you will not need to do anything if you decide to make use of script-based web applications that require this MySQL database storage engine. The default MySQL engine, MyISAM, will be activated too. You can create a brand-new database and begin the app installation manually or through our single-click installer tool. The system will recognize which engine the particular app needs and will set it for the specific MySQL database, so the installation process will proceed impeccably and the application can dump its data in that database. Therefore, you can install apps with different requirements with regard to the MySQL engine without making any changes on your Virtual Private Server.

InnoDB in Dedicated Servers

Our Hepsia Control Panel is one of the features that you can select on the server order page when you buy a dedicated server from us. As this is the most powerful kind of website hosting, it is quite likely that you will manage highly popular Internet sites that will attract a lot of people, and since InnoDB is one of the very best choices for such Internet sites, we’ll enable it together with all the other software applications that come with a Hepsia-managed server. When you set up a brand new MySQL database in your dedicated server account, there won’t be any active MySQL storage engine until you begin installing an open-source script, whether manually via your web browser or using the automatic script installer that is integrated into the hosting Control Panel. The required engine will be recognized and will be assigned to that database, so you can install scripts that require InnoDB, as well as ones that need MyISAM – the default MySQL engine, without encountering any impediment.
