InnoDB is a popular database engine for the MySQL relational database management system. It’s an alternative to the default MyISAM engine and it has got numerous advantages that have made it the preferred engine for lots of PHP-driven web apps, including Magento and Joomla, which have switched to InnoDB for good. For instance, importing enormous volumes of data will be faster with InnoDB, since it locks only a single row to complete a task, not the entire table, which makes the engine ideal for scalable apps. It also supports foreign keys and transactions – these refer to the way in which the info is handled. Put simply, importing new or editing existing data will either be thoroughly completed, or will be canceled and the operation will be rolled back in case any issue appears during the process, thus the content that remains in the database won’t be damaged.

InnoDB in Hosting

InnoDB is available with all our Linux hosting packages by default, not upon request or as a paid upgrade, so you can install and manage any script-driven application which needs the InnoDB database engine without having to deal with any difficulty once you order your shared hosting account. InnoDB will be pre-selected as the default engine for a particular database during the app activation process, no matter if you use our one-click installer or create the MySQL database and install the app manually, as long as the application requires it instead of the more famous MyISAM engine. We’ll carry out daily backups of all your databases, so you can rest assured that you won’t ever lose any data in case you erase a database by accident or you overwrite some essential information – you just have to get in touch with us and we will restore your database the way it was.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting

InnoDB is available with all our Linux semi-dedicated hosting by default, so as soon as you order a new account, you can go on and install any PHP-driven software application that needs the MySQL database storage engine. A couple of engines are pre-installed on our cloud platform, so when you set up a new MySQL database and begin installing an application manually, or decide to make use of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel-integrated application installer tool, the engine for the database will be picked based on the requirements of the particular app. This will permit you to activate and manage InnoDB-specific applications without coming across any obstacle and without needing to change any settings in your semi-dedicated account. To be on the safe side, we’ll always keep a seven-day-old backup of all your databases, so if you delete or alter any content accidentally, we can easily retrieve it.

InnoDB in VPS

If you select a virtual private server with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, the InnoDB storage engine will be included in the software pack that will be pre-installed on your Virtual Private Server before we give it to you. You will not need to set up anything manually and you’ll be able to enable and run any PHP-driven application that requires InnoDB once your Virtual Private Server is up and running, which takes no more than 60 minutes after the order submission process itself. A couple of engines are offered, so whenever you set up a database via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, a particular engine will be activated once the app installation begins and our system will automatically detect the engine that is required by the application in question. In case you have to use MyISAM, for example, you won’t have to do anything different than installing the app of your preference, whether manually or using our app installer tool.

InnoDB in Dedicated Hosting

Our Hepsia hosting Control Panel is one of the features that you can select on the order page when you buy a dedicated server from our company. As this is the most powerful kind of hosting, it is pretty likely that you will run very popular sites that will attract a lot of individuals, and since InnoDB is among the very best options for such Internet sites, we’ll install it along with all the other software apps that are offered with a Hepsia-managed dedicated server. If you create a brand-new MySQL database in your account, there won’t be any activated database storage engine until you begin installing an open-source PHP script, whether manually via your browser or using the automatic scripts installer that is integrated into the Control Panel. The needed engine will be automatically recognized and will be set for the database in question, so you can use scripts that require InnoDB, as well as ones that require MyISAM – the default MySQL engine, without experiencing any problem.
