InnoDB is a very popular database engine for the MySQL DBMS. It’s an alternative to the default engine – MyISAM, and it has got lots of strengths which have made it the preferred engine for plenty of PHP-driven apps, such as Magento and Joomla, which have shifted over to InnoDB for good. For instance, importing huge volumes of data will be faster with InnoDB, as it locks only one row to execute a given task, not the entire table, which makes the engine excellent for scalable applications. It also supports foreign keys and transactions – these refer to the manner in which the information is treated. To put it simply, importing new or modifying existent data will either be thoroughly completed, or will be canceled and the operation will be rolled back in case a certain problem shows up in the meantime, hence the content that remains in the database will not be lost.

InnoDB in Web Hosting

While InnoDB is either a paid upgrade or it is not available at all with many other hosting providers, it’s an integral part of the default set of features that we are offering with our web hosting packages. In case you want to make use of an open-source script-driven software app that requires InnoDB particularly, in order to be installed and to operate properly, you will not experience any impediments as the MySQL database storage engine is available on our custom-built cloud web hosting platform. Regardless of whether you set up a brand-new MySQL database and activate an application manually or make use of our one-click application installer instrument, InnoDB will be selected automatically by our system as the default engine if the specific app needs InnoDB rather than MyISAM. In addition to the outstanding crash recovery that InnoDB offers, we also maintain daily backups of all databases, so that we can swiftly recover any database in your shared website hosting account.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting include InnoDB and you will be able to take full advantage of all the options offered by this MySQL storage engine with any script-based app that needs it. It is among the engines that we have on our cloud platform, so the one that will be picked depends on the prerequisites of the respective app. You won’t need to do anything manually in order to enable InnoDB, since it will be set as the default engine whenever you install an application – whether manually or using our single-click application installer tool. To be on the safe side, we will store daily backups of all your databases, so if something goes wrong after an update or if you remove some content by mistake, we will be able to restore the database the way it was on any of the previous 7 days.

InnoDB in VPS Web Hosting

All Linux VPS web hosting packages that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel come with InnoDB already installed, so you’ll be able to take advantage of any open-source script-driven app that requires the storage engine without needing to activate anything manually. You can select Hepsia on the VPS order form and your brand-new VPS server will be ready within sixty minutes, so you can sign in and begin setting up your web sites right away. Once you set up a brand-new database and begin the app activation process, our system will set the engine for this database automatically. In this way, you can activate different applications simultaneously without having to change anything on the VPS server. You can create a WordPress-driven weblog that uses the default MySQL engine – MyISAM, and a Magento-driven e-commerce website that makes use of InnoDB, for example.

InnoDB in Dedicated Servers Hosting

All Linux dedicated servers hosting packages that are ordered with our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel come with a software bundle that’s pre-installed and among everything else, you’ll get the InnoDB database engine, so you won’t have to install it manually if you want to use PHP scripts that need it. All it takes to install such a script is to set up a new database and to initiate the installation process – as soon as the installer wizard receives access to the database in question and starts dumping data in it, InnoDB will be set as the default MySQL engine for this database provided that it is the one required by the particular script. You will also be able to use scripts that need the other very popular MySQL engine, MyISAM, so you won’t need to configure any settings on the dedicated server. This will allow you to install various scripts on one single physical server and to use it to its fullest capacity.
