InnoDB is a popular storage engine for MySQL. It is an alternative to the default MyISAM engine and it has got numerous strong sides that have made it the engine of choice for a lot of PHP script-based web applications, such as Joomla and Magento, which have switched over to InnoDB permanently. For example, importing huge amounts of data will be much faster with InnoDB, since it locks only a single database row to accomplish a specific operation, not the entire table, which makes the engine perfect for scalable apps. It also supports foreign keys and transactions – these refer to the manner in which the information is tackled. In simpler words, adding new or modifying existing data will either be fully completed, or will be canceled and the procedure will be rolled back in case some problem shows up during the process, which means that the content that remains in the database won’t be damaged.

InnoDB in Hosting

InnoDB is offered with all our Linux hosting packages by default, not upon request or as a paid upgrade, so you’ll be able to install and manage any PHP script-based app which requires the MySQL database engine without the need to deal with any difficulty as soon as you open your shared web hosting account. InnoDB will be selected automatically as the default engine for a particular database during the app installation, no matter if you make use of our 1-click installation tool or create the database and set up the app manually, provided that the app requires it instead of the more popular MyISAM engine. We will make daily database backups, so you can be sure that you will never lose any content if you delete a database by mistake or you overwrite some vital information – you simply have to inform us and we will restore your content the way it was.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages include InnoDB and you can use all the features of this database storage engine with any PHP script-powered web application that needs it. It is one of the engines that we have on our cloud website hosting platform, so the one that will be picked depends on the prerequisites of the application in question. You won’t have to do anything manually in order to enable InnoDB, as it will be set as the default engine when you install an application – whether manually or using our 1-click application installer tool. To be on the safe side, we will maintain daily MySQL database backups, so if something goes wrong after an upgrade or if you erase some content by mistake, we’ll be able to restore the database the way it was on any of the past 7 days.

InnoDB in VPS Hosting

All Linux VPS 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 script-based software application that requires this particular storage engine without having to configure anything manually. You can select Hepsia on the VPS order form and your brand-new VPS server will be ready within the hour, so you can log in and begin building your websites straight away. Once you set up a new database and start the app activation process, our system will set the engine for this database automatically. In this way, you can make use of various apps simultaneously without having to edit anything on the server. You can have a WordPress-driven blog that uses the default MySQL engine – MyISAM, and a Magento-driven Internet shop that makes use of InnoDB, for instance.

InnoDB in Dedicated Web Hosting

Our Hepsia Control Panel is among the options which you can select on the order form when you buy a dedicated server from us. As this is the most powerful kind of website hosting, it is very likely that you will manage very popular Internet sites that will attract a lot of visitors, and since InnoDB is one of the very best options for such Internet sites, we’ll activate it together with all the other software apps that are available with a Hepsia-managed server. If you create a brand new database in your account, there won’t be any active MySQL database storage engine till you begin installing an open-source PHP script, whether manually via your Internet browser or using the automatic script installer tool that is included in the Control Panel. The needed engine will be recognized and will be assigned to the database in question, so you can use scripts that require InnoDB, as well as ones that need MyISAM, the default MySQL engine, without needing to cope with any problem.
