InnoDB is a very popular storage engine for the MySQL relational database management system. It is an alternative to the default MyISAM engine and it has got plenty of advantages that make it the engine of choice for plenty of PHP-based web applications, including Magento and Joomla, which have moved to InnoDB permanently. For instance, adding immense amounts of data will be faster with InnoDB, since it locks only one row to complete a particular task, not the entire database table, which makes the engine ideal for scalable apps. It also supports foreign keys and transactions – these refer to the manner in which the data is handled. Put simply, appending new or editing existing data will either be entirely completed, or will be aborted and the procedure will be rolled back in case some problem appears in the meantime, which is why the content that remains in the database will not be damaged.

InnoDB in Cloud Website Hosting

InnoDB is offered with all our Linux cloud website hosting by default, not as a paid upgrade or upon request, so you can activate and manage any script-based web app which requires the database storage engine without encountering any problem once you order your shared account. InnoDB will be selected automatically as the default engine for a certain database during the app activation process, regardless of whether you use our one-click installer or create the database and set up the application manually, as long as the application requires it instead of the more popular MyISAM engine. We’ll carry out daily backups of all your MySQL databases, so you can rest assured that you’ll never lose any data in case you delete a database by accident or you overwrite some important info – you will simply have to get in touch with us and we will restore your content back to normal.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting

InnoDB is included with all our Linux semi-dedicated packages by default, so as soon as you purchase a new account, you can go on and install any PHP-based application that requires the MySQL database storage engine. A few engines are pre-installed on our cloud web hosting platform, so when you create a new MySQL database and start installing an application manually, or opt to make use of the Hepsia Control Panel-integrated application installer tool, the engine for the database will be selected depending on the prerequisites of the particular application. This will allow you to install and manage InnoDB-specific apps without the need to cope with any impediment and without having to modify any settings in your semi-dedicated account. To avoid any risk, we’ll always have a 1-week-old backup of all your databases, so if you remove or edit any content by accident, we can easily restore it.

InnoDB in VPS

If you order a virtual private server with our Hepsia Control Panel, the InnoDB database storage engine will be included in the software pack that will be installed on your server before we hand it over to you. You won’t have to configure anything manually and you will be able to enable and run any PHP script-driven software app that needs InnoDB as soon as your VPS server is up and running, which takes no more than sixty minutes after the order process itself. Several engines are available, so every time you create a MySQL database using the Hepsia Control Panel, a specific engine will be picked once the app activation 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 will not need to do anything different than installing the preferred application, whether manually or using our application installer tool.

InnoDB in Dedicated Hosting

InnoDB comes by default with all dedicated hosting that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. It’s part of the default software package that will be installed on all Hepsia-equipped servers, so once your physical machine is up and running, you’ll be able to log in and to activate any kind of script-based software app that requires this storage engine. When you create a new MySQL database through the hosting Control Panel, there won’t be any activated engine till you begin installing an application. As soon as the app configuration wizard starts dumping content in the newly created database, the engine will be picked automatically in accordance with the prerequisites of the particular app, so you can use both MyISAM and InnoDB without selecting either of them explicitly at any point. Thus, you can make use of an extensive range of apps for your Internet sites.
