InnoDB is a very popular database storage engine for the MySQL database management system. It’s an alternative to the default MyISAM engine and it has numerous strong sides that have made it the engine of choice for a lot of open-source script-based software applications, such as Joomla and Magento, which have switched over to InnoDB for good. For instance, importing huge data volumes will be much faster with InnoDB, because it locks only a single database row to carry out a specific operation, not the entire table, which makes the engine ideal for scalable apps. It also supports foreign keys and database transactions – these refer to the way in which the data is tackled. In simpler words, appending new or editing existing data will either be thoroughly completed, or will be canceled and the operation will be rolled back in case a given issue appears in the meantime, therefore the content that remains in the database will not be damaged.

InnoDB in Cloud Web Hosting

InnoDB is offered with all our Linux cloud web hosting by default, not upon request or as a paid upgrade, so you will be able to install and run any open-source script-driven software app that requires the MySQL storage engine without any obstacles 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 activation process, regardless of whether you take advantage of our single-click installation tool or create the MySQL database and set up the application manually, on the condition that the app requires InnoDB instead of the more famous MyISAM engine. We’ll generate regular database backups, so you can rest assured that you will never lose any content if you delete a database accidentally or you overwrite some crucial info – you’ll simply need to inform us and we’ll restore your content back to normal.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can use an open-source script-powered application that needs InnoDB with any of our semi-dedicated server packages, since all the accounts are created on our advanced cloud platform where the database engine is installed. A new MySQL database can be set up in two separate ways – manually from the Database Manager section of the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, or automatically – in case you take advantage of our single-click app installer. In either case, the needed engine will be chosen automatically as soon as the installation of the app begins, so you won’t need to edit anything manually, regardless of whether the app requires InnoDB or the more widely used MyISAM. In addition, we will always be able to retrieve any of your databases if you remove one by mistake, as we carry out several database backups every day, each of which is stored for one week.

InnoDB in VPS Servers

If our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel is picked during the signup process for your new VPS plans , InnoDB will be installed on the server together with other needed software, so you won’t have to do anything if you decide to run PHP-driven web applications that need this MySQL storage engine. The default MySQL engine, MyISAM, will be installed too. You can create a brand-new MySQL database and start installing the application manually or using our 1-click installer. The system will detect the engine that the particular app needs and will set it for the specific database, so the installation process will continue flawlessly and the app can enter its data into that database. In this way, you can manage applications with different requirements concerning the MySQL engine without making any modifications on your VPS.

InnoDB in Dedicated Servers

Our Hepsia hosting Control Panel is one of the options which you can select on the order page when you buy a dedicated server from our company. Since this is the most powerful kind of web hosting, it’s pretty likely that you will manage popular sites that will attract lots of people, and since InnoDB is among the very best choices for such Internet sites, we’ll enable it along with all the other software applications that come with a Hepsia-managed server. When you create a new database in your dedicated account, there won’t be any active MySQL database storage engine until you begin installing an open-source PHP script, whether manually via your Internet browser or using the automatic script installer that is included in the Control Panel. The needed engine will be detected automatically and will be assigned to that database, so you can run scripts that require InnoDB, as well as ones that need MyISAM, the default MySQL engine, without the need to cope with any problem.
