InnoDB is a popular database storage engine for the MySQL DBMS. It is an alternative to the default engine – MyISAM, and it has got numerous strong sides which have made it the engine of choice for lots of open-source script-powered applications, among them Joomla and Magento, which have shifted over to InnoDB permanently. For example, importing immense amounts of data will be much faster with InnoDB, due to the fact that it locks only one database row to execute a specific operation, not the entire table, which makes the engine excellent for scalable apps. InnoDB also supports foreign keys and transactions – these refer to the way in which the data is treated. To put it simply, adding new or editing existent data will either be thoroughly completed, or will be annulled and the procedure will be rolled back in case any issue appears during the process, which is why the content that remains in the database will not be lost.

InnoDB in Cloud Website Hosting

Any PHP-based software app that needs InnoDB will run impeccably on our innovative cloud website hosting platform and the database storage engine is available with all our cloud website hosting packages. Whenever you create a MySQL database manually or our app installer tool creates one automatically and an app installation is started, the engine that the database will make use of will be selected in accordance with the app’s prerequisites without having to update any setting in your web hosting account. InnoDB will be chosen automatically for any application that requires this specific engine and you will be able to get the most out of its full capacity. We will make daily content backups, so if you accidentally erase a database that’s important to you or you overwrite some part of it, we’ll be able to restore the database the way it was just a few hours earlier.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting include InnoDB and you’ll be able to use all the features offered by this database engine with any PHP script-powered web app that requires it. InnoDB is one of the engines that we have on our cloud web hosting platform, so the one that will be selected depends on the prerequisites of the specific application. You won’t need to do anything manually to activate InnoDB, since it will be set as the default engine when you install an app – whether manually or using our 1-click app installer tool. To be on the safe side, we’ll create regular backups of all your databases, so if something goes wrong after an update or if you remove some data by mistake, we will be able to restore your database the way it was on any of the past seven days.

InnoDB in VPS

If you get a virtual private server with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, the InnoDB database storage engine will be an indivisible part of the default software bundle that will be pre-installed on your server before we hand it over to you. You will not have to set up anything manually and you will be able to install and manage any PHP script-based software app that needs InnoDB as soon as your Virtual Private Server is set up, which takes no more than one hour after the order process itself. Several engines are offered, so every time you create a database using the Hepsia Control Panel, a specific engine will be picked once the app activation starts and our system will automatically recognize the engine that is required by the app in question. If you need to use MyISAM, for instance, you will not need to do anything different than installing the preferred app, whether manually or using our app installer tool.

InnoDB in Dedicated Hosting

InnoDB is included as standard with all dedicated hosting services ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. It’s included in the standard software bundle that we install on all Hepsia-equipped servers, so as soon as your machine is up and running, you will be able to sign in and to activate any kind of open-source script-based software application that requires this particular MySQL storage engine. When you create a new MySQL database via the hosting Control Panel, there won’t be any active engine till you begin installing an app. As soon as the app activation wizard starts dumping content in the database, the engine will be chosen automatically on the basis of the prerequisites of the particular app, so you can run both InnoDB and MyISAM without having to select either one of them specifically at any point. Thus, you can make use of a huge selection of apps for your websites.
