InnoDB is a popular database engine for the MySQL DBMS. It is an alternative to the default engine – MyISAM, and it has got a number of upsides which make it the preferred engine for plenty of script-based web applications, such as Joomla and Magento, which have switched over to InnoDB permanently. For instance, importing enormous amounts of data will be faster with InnoDB, due to the fact that it locks only a single row to execute a particular task, not the entire database table, which makes the engine perfect for scalable applications. It also supports foreign keys and transactions – these refer to the way in which the info is handled. Put simply, adding new or updating existing data will either be entirely completed, or will be canceled and the operation will be rolled back if a given issue appears during the process, thus the content that remains in the database won’t be lost.

InnoDB in Cloud Web Hosting

InnoDB is available with all our cloud web hosting plans by default, not as a paid upgrade or upon request, so you’ll be able to install and manage any PHP script-powered web application that needs the MySQL database engine without any problems once you open your shared web hosting account. InnoDB will be pre-selected as the default engine for a specific MySQL database during the app installation process, irrespective of whether you make use of our one-click installation tool or create the database and install the app manually, as long as the application requires it instead of the more famous MyISAM engine. We will make regular database backups, so you can be certain that you’ll never lose any data in case you erase a database by accident or you overwrite some key information – you simply have to touch base with us and we will restore the database back to normal.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our Linux semi-dedicated servers include InnoDB and you will be able to take advantage of all the features of this MySQL storage engine with any open-source script-driven software app that needs it. It’s among the engines that we have on our cloud hosting platform, so the one that will be picked depends on the requirements of the particular app. You won’t have to do anything manually in order to activate InnoDB, since it will be set as the default engine when you install an application – whether manually or using our single-click application installer tool. To be on the safe side, we will perform regular database backups, so if something goes wrong following an update or if you remove some content by accident, we will be able to get your database back to the way it was on any of the past 7 days.

InnoDB in VPS Servers

If you obtain a VPS server from us, you’ll be able to use our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel to manage your content. A Hepsia-managed VPS will permit you to activate any PHP script-driven application that needs InnoDB, as this particular MySQL database engine is part of the standard software package that will be installed on your VPS server during its setup. When you set up a new database via the Control Panel, you will just have to begin installing an app – manually or using our app installer. InnoDB will be set as the default engine on the condition that the application in question requires it, so you won’t have to do anything else in your account. Equivalently, if a given app needs MyISAM, it will be automatically set as the default engine for this particular database.

InnoDB in Dedicated Servers

InnoDB is available as standard with all Linux dedicated servers that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It is an integral part of the default software package that we install on all Hepsia-managed dedicated servers, so once your physical machine is set up, you will be able to sign in and to install a various open-source script-based web app that needs this particular database storage engine. When you create a new database via the Control Panel, there won’t be any activated engine until you start installing an application. Once the app activation wizard begins inserting data into the database, the engine will be picked automatically based on the prerequisites of the application in question, so you can run both MyISAM and InnoDB without selecting either one of them explicitly at any time. In this way, you can make use of a wide collection of applications for your Internet sites.
