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 lots of strengths that have made it the engine of choice for numerous open-source script-powered web apps, among them Magento and Joomla, which have moved to InnoDB for good. For instance, adding large volumes of data will be faster with InnoDB, since it locks only one row to execute a particular task, not the entire table, which makes the engine ideal for scalable applications. InnoDB also supports foreign keys and database transactions – these refer to the manner in which the info is handled. Simply put, importing new or editing existent data will either be thoroughly completed, or will be canceled and the operation will be rolled back if any problem appears in the meantime, which means that the content that remains in the database won’t be damaged.

InnoDB in Cloud Hosting

InnoDB is available with all our cloud hosting services by default, not as a paid upgrade or upon request, so you will be able to activate and manage any PHP-driven web application which requires the MySQL database storage engine without having to deal with any impediment as soon as you activate your account. InnoDB will be selected automatically as the default engine for a particular database during the app activation, irrespective of whether you use our single-click installer or create the MySQL database and set up the app manually, as long as the application requires it instead of the more famous MyISAM engine. We’ll perform regular database backups, so you can be certain that you’ll never lose any data if you erase a database accidentally or you overwrite some key info – you will simply have to touch base with us and we’ll restore your content the way it was.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting come with InnoDB and you can use all the features of this MySQL storage engine with any open-source script-based application that needs it. It’s among the engines that we have on our cloud platform, so the one that will be selected depends on the requirements of the specific app. You will not have to do anything manually in order to activate InnoDB, because it will be set as the default engine when you install an app – whether manually or using our 1-click app installer tool. To avoid any risk, we’ll perform regular backups of all your MySQL databases, so if anything goes wrong after an update or if you erase some content accidentally, we’ll be able to get the database back to 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 package that will be pre-installed on your Virtual Private Server before we give it to you. You will not need to activate anything manually and you will be able to install and use any script-based app that needs InnoDB as soon as your Virtual Private Server is set up, which takes no more than one hour after the order submission itself. A number of engines are offered, so whenever you set up a database using the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, a specific engine will be selected once the app activation process begins and our system will automatically detect the engine that is required by the application in question. If you need MyISAM, for instance, you will not need to do anything different from installing the preferred application, whether manually or using our app installer.

InnoDB in Dedicated Hosting

InnoDB comes as standard with all Linux dedicated hosting that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. It is an essential part of the default software package that will be installed on all Hepsia-managed dedicated servers, so as soon as your machine is up and running, you’ll be able to log in and to install a various script-based software app that requires this storage engine. If you set up a new database through the Control Panel, there won’t be any active engine till you begin installing an application. Once the app setup wizard begins inserting data into the database, the engine will be chosen automatically in accordance with the specific app’s prerequisites, so you can run both InnoDB and MyISAM without selecting either one of them explicitly at any point. In this way, you can use an immense range of applications for your websites.
