InnoDB is a popular database engine for the MySQL database management system. It’s an alternative to the default engine – MyISAM, and it has plenty of upsides that have made it the engine of choice for many script-powered software apps, among them Joomla and Magento, which have moved to InnoDB permanently. For example, adding large amounts of data will be faster with InnoDB, since it locks only one database row to complete a particular 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 manner in which the info is handled. In simpler words, appending new or modifying existent data will either be entirely completed, or will be aborted and the procedure will be rolled back in case a given problem appears in the meantime, thus the content that remains in the database will not be lost.

InnoDB in Cloud Web Hosting

InnoDB is available with all our Linux cloud web hosting plans by default, not as a paid upgrade or upon request, so you can install and run any script-powered application that needs the MySQL database storage engine without having to deal with any difficulty as soon as you open your shared hosting account. InnoDB will be pre-selected as the default engine for a specific MySQL database during the app installation process, regardless of whether you take advantage of our single-click installation tool or create the database and activate the application manually, provided that the application requires InnoDB instead of the more popular MyISAM engine. We will maintain daily backups of all your MySQL databases, so you can be certain that you won’t ever lose any data if you delete a database accidentally or you overwrite some crucial info – you will just have to notify us and we will restore your content the way it was.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can install a script-driven application that needs InnoDB with any of our semi-dedicated server plans, due to the fact that all the accounts are created on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform where the storage engine is installed. A new MySQL database can be created in two separate ways – manually from the Database Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, or automatically – when you use our one-click app installer tool. Either way, the required engine will be selected automatically as soon as the app’s activation begins, so you will not have to configure anything manually, regardless of whether the application requires InnoDB or the more widely used MyISAM. In addition, we will always be able to recover any of your databases if you remove one by mistake, as we create a couple of database backups every day, each of which is preserved for seven days.

InnoDB in VPS Servers

If you select a VPS server with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, the InnoDB storage engine will be an essential part of the default software pack that will be installed on your VPS server before we give it to you. You won’t need to activate anything manually and you will be able to install and manage any PHP-based software app that needs InnoDB once your Virtual Private Server is ready, which takes no more than 1 hour after the order submission procedure itself. A couple of engines are available, so whenever you create a database through the Hepsia Control Panel, a particular engine will be selected once the app installation commences and our system will automatically detect the engine that is required by the application in question. If you have to use MyISAM, for instance, you won’t have to do anything different than installing the chosen app, whether manually or using our application installer tool.

InnoDB in Dedicated Servers

Our Hepsia Control Panel is among the options that you can choose on the server order page when you purchase a dedicated server from us. As this is the most powerful type of hosting, it is pretty likely that you’ll manage highly popular websites that will attract many visitors, and since InnoDB is among the best choices for such websites, we will activate it together with all the other software applications that come with a Hepsia-managed server. If you create a brand-new MySQL database in your account, there won’t be any active MySQL storage engine until you start installing an open-source PHP script, whether manually via your web browser or using the automatic script installer tool that is included in the hosting Control Panel. The required engine will be automatically detected and will be set for the database in question, so you can run scripts that require InnoDB, as well as ones that need the default MySQL engine – MyISAM, without running into any difficulty.
