InnoDB is a popular database engine for the MySQL database management system. It’s an alternative to the default engine – MyISAM, and it has got many upsides that have made it the preferred engine for plenty of script-driven apps, including Joomla and Magento, which have switched over to InnoDB for good. For instance, importing immense data volumes will be faster with InnoDB, since it locks only a single database row to complete a task, not the entire database table, which makes the engine perfect for scalable apps. It also supports foreign keys and transactions – these refer to the way in which the info is treated. Put simply, importing new or editing existent data will either be fully completed, or will be aborted and the operation will be rolled back in case a given issue occurs in the meantime, thus the content that remains in the database will not be damaged.

InnoDB in Cloud Hosting

InnoDB is offered with all our cloud service by default, not as a paid upgrade or upon request, so you can activate and run any script-based web app which requires the database storage engine without having any problem as soon as you order your shared hosting account. InnoDB will be selected automatically as the default engine for a given database during the app activation, regardless of whether you use our one-click installation tool or create the MySQL database and set up the application manually, on the condition that the application requires it instead of the more famous MyISAM engine. We will create daily backups of all your databases, so you can be certain that you’ll never lose any content if you delete a database unintentionally or you overwrite some vital info – you simply need to notify us and we will restore the database the way it was.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our semi-dedicated servers come with InnoDB and you’ll be able to take advantage of all the features offered by this storage engine with any open-source script-based software application that requires it. It is among the engines that are available on our cloud website hosting platform, so the one that will be used depends on the prerequisites of the given app. You won’t need to do anything manually in order to activate InnoDB, as it will be set as the default engine when you install an app – whether manually or using our one-click app installer. To be on the safe side, we will keep regular database backups, so if anything goes wrong after an upgrade or if you remove some data accidentally, we’ll be able to get your database back to the way it was on any of the previous 7 days.

InnoDB in VPS Servers

If you choose a VPS server with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, the InnoDB database engine will be an indivisible part of the default software package that will be installed on your Virtual Private Server before we hand it over to you. You will not need to set up anything manually and you will be able to enable and manage any PHP script-based app that requires InnoDB when your VPS server is set up, which takes no more than 60 minutes after the order submission procedure itself. A couple of engines are available, so whenever you create a MySQL database using the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, a specific engine will be selected when the app activation process commences and our system will automatically detect the engine that is required by the app in question. In case you have to use MyISAM, for example, you will not have to do anything different than installing the chosen application, whether manually or using our app installer.

InnoDB in Dedicated Servers

InnoDB is available by default with all Linux dedicated service ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. It’s part of the standard software package that will be installed on all Hepsia-managed dedicated servers, so once your machine is ready, you will be able to sign in and to install any PHP script-driven app that requires this MySQL storage engine. If you set up a new database through the hosting Control Panel, there won’t be any activated engine until you begin installing an application. As soon as the app activation wizard starts dumping information in the database, the engine will be chosen automatically in accordance with the respective app’s requirements, so you can use both InnoDB and MyISAM without having to select either one explicitly at any time. Therefore, you can make use of an immense collection of apps for your Internet sites.
