InnoDB is a popular storage engine for the MySQL RDBMS. It’s an alternative to the default engine – MyISAM, and it has got plenty of upsides which have made it the preferred engine for numerous PHP-driven apps, such as Magento and Joomla, which have moved to InnoDB for good. For instance, importing enormous volumes of data will be faster with InnoDB, as it locks only a single row to execute a specific operation, not the entire database table, which makes the engine perfect for scalable apps. It also supports foreign keys and database transactions – these refer to the manner in which the data is treated. In simpler words, adding new or modifying existing data will either be thoroughly completed, or will be aborted and the operation will be rolled back if some problem shows up in the meantime, hence the content that remains in the database will not be damaged.

InnoDB in Website Hosting

While InnoDB is either a paid upgrade or it is not available at all with other hosting service providers, it’s an essential part of the standard set of services offered with our website hosting packages. If you want to make use of an open-source script-driven application that needs InnoDB specifically, in order to be installed and to work properly, you won’t have any problems as the InnoDB storage engine is available on our in-house developed cloud platform. Regardless of whether you set up a brand new database and install an application manually or use our one-click application installer software tool, InnoDB will be selected automatically by our system as the default engine if the application needs InnoDB rather than MyISAM. In addition to the outstanding database failure recovery that InnoDB offers, we also keep daily backups of all databases, so that we can quickly restore any database in your shared hosting account.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can install a PHP script-based app that requires InnoDB with all of our semi-dedicated server plans, because all the accounts are created on our advanced cloud hosting platform where the database storage engine is installed. A new database can be created in two different ways – manually through the Database Manager section of the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, or automatically – if you take advantage of our single-click application installer. Either way, the required engine will be selected automatically once the application’s installation begins, so you won’t have to update anything manually, regardless of whether the app requires InnoDB or the more widely used MyISAM. Also, we will always be able to recover any of your MySQL databases in case you erase one by mistake, as we make a couple of backups every day, each of which is stored for 1 whole week.

InnoDB in VPS Hosting

When you purchase a virtual private server from our company, you’ll be able to use our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel to manage your content. A Hepsia-equipped VPS will permit you to use any open-source script-based app that requires InnoDB, as this particular database storage engine is part of the standard software bundle that will be pre-installed on the server during its configuration. When you create a brand new MySQL database via the Control Panel, you’ll simply have to begin installing an app – manually or using our app installer. InnoDB will be set as the default engine given that the app in question needs it, so you will not need to do anything else in your VPS account. Identically, if a given application needs MyISAM, it will be automatically set as the default engine for this particular MySQL database.

InnoDB in Dedicated Web Hosting

Our Hepsia Control Panel is among the options that you can select on the order form when you buy a dedicated server from our company. Since this is the most powerful type of hosting, it’s very likely that you’ll manage very popular websites that will attract many individuals, and since InnoDB is one of the best options for such Internet sites, we’ll install it along with all the other software applications that come with a Hepsia-managed server. If you create a brand-new database in your account, there won’t be any activated database storage engine till you start installing a script, whether manually via your Internet browser or using the automatic script installer that is integrated into the hosting Control Panel. The needed engine will be recognized and will be assigned to that database, so you can activate scripts that need InnoDB, as well as ones that need the default MySQL engine, MyISAM, without running into any predicament.
