InnoDB is a very popular database storage engine for the MySQL relational database management system. It’s an alternative to the default engine – MyISAM, and it has a lot of strengths that have made it the engine of choice for lots of PHP script-based apps, such as Magento and Joomla, which have switched to InnoDB for good. For example, importing huge data volumes will be much faster with InnoDB, since it locks only a single database row to accomplish a particular operation, not the entire table, which makes the engine ideal for scalable applications. It also supports foreign keys and database transactions – these refer to the way in which the info is tackled. In simpler words, appending new or modifying existing data will either be entirely completed, or will be canceled and the procedure will be rolled back in case any problem occurs in the meantime, which means that the content that remains in the database won’t be damaged.

InnoDB in Cloud Hosting

Every PHP-driven software app that requires InnoDB will function flawlessly on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform and the database storage engine is offered with all our cloud hosting plans. Each time you create a database manually or our app installer tool creates one automatically and an app installation process is initiated, the engine that the database in question will make use of will be selected based on the app’s specifications without the need to configure any setting in your account. InnoDB will be picked automatically for any app that requires this specific engine and you will be able to make the most of its full potential. We will create daily content backups, so in case you accidentally remove a MySQL database that is important to you or you overwrite specific parts of it, we’ll be able to restore everything the way it was just a couple of hours earlier.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our semi-dedicated packages include InnoDB and you’ll be able to take advantage of all the features offered by this database storage engine with any script-driven web application that needs it. It is among the engines that we have on our cloud hosting platform, so the one that will be used depends on the prerequisites of the application in question. You won’t have to do anything manually to activate InnoDB, as it will be set as the default engine when you install an app – whether manually or using our one-click application installer. To be on the safe side, we will generate daily backups of all your MySQL databases, so if something goes wrong after an update or if you remove some data unintentionally, we will be able to get your database back to the way it was on any of the past 7 days.

InnoDB in VPS Hosting

All VPS hosting that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel come with InnoDB already installed, so you’ll be able to run any PHP script-based software application that needs this MySQL database storage engine without configuring anything manually. You can select Hepsia on the VPS order form and your brand new Virtual Private Server will be set up within sixty minutes, so you can log in and start building your websites straight away. When you create a brand new database and start the app installation process, our system will pick the engine for this MySQL database automatically. Thus, you can install different applications simultaneously without the need to change anything on the Virtual Private Server. You can have a WordPress-powered blog that uses the default MySQL engine – MyISAM, and a Magento-powered e-store that uses InnoDB, for example.

InnoDB in Dedicated Web Hosting

When you purchase a new dedicated server, you’ll be able to select one of the 3 Control Panels offered by us – cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. Any server ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel comes with InnoDB pre-activated, so you will not need to enable this MySQL storage engine manually to be able to use script-powered applications that require it. InnoDB is used by scalable applications and since a dedicated server will provide you with all the resources that you require to manage large-scale Internet sites, it is rather possible that you’ll use InnoDB. You will be able to make use of other engines too, so in case a specific app needs MyISAM rather than InnoDB, you will not have to deal with any predicament while running it. The engine that will be used will be automatically recognized the moment the app installation commences, so you will not need to update any settings manually at any point.
