InnoDB is a very popular database engine for the MySQL RDBMS. It’s an alternative to the default engine – MyISAM, and it has a number of strengths which make it the engine of choice for plenty of open-source script-powered applications, such as Joomla and Magento, which have switched to InnoDB permanently. For example, adding enormous amounts of data will be much faster with InnoDB, because it locks only one database row to perform a task, not the entire database table, which makes the engine ideal for scalable apps. InnoDB also supports foreign keys and database transactions – these refer to the manner in which the info is treated. Simply put, importing new or updating existing data will either be fully completed, or will be aborted and the operation will be rolled back in case any problem appears during the process, which means that the content that remains in the database won’t be lost.

InnoDB in Cloud Hosting

While InnoDB is either a paid upgrade or it is not available at all with other web hosting companies, it is part of the default set of services that we are offering with our cloud hosting plans. In case you wish to use a script-based application that needs InnoDB in particular, in order to be installed and to work properly, you won’t have to deal with any difficulties as the InnoDB database engine is available on our custom cloud Internet hosting platform. No matter if you create a new MySQL database and install an application manually or take advantage of our one-click application installer software tool, InnoDB will be selected automatically by our platform as the default engine if the specific app needs InnoDB rather than MyISAM. In addition to the amazing database crash recovery that InnoDB offers, we also make daily backups of all databases, so we can quickly recover any database in your shared hosting account.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting

InnoDB comes with all our semi-dedicated hosting by default, so as soon as you order a new semi-dedicated account, you can go on and activate any open-source script-based web application that requires this particular storage engine. A couple of engines are pre-installed on our cloud hosting platform, so when you create a brand new database and start installing an app manually, or opt to make use of the Hepsia Control Panel-integrated app installer tool, the engine for the database will be chosen based on the given app’s prerequisites. This will permit you to activate and run InnoDB-specific applications without any problems and without the need to update any settings in your account. To take no chances, we will always keep a 7-day-old backup of all your MySQL databases, so if you delete or alter any content unintentionally, we can easily recover it.

InnoDB in VPS Hosting

All VPS hosting packages that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel come with InnoDB pre-activated, so you’ll be able to take advantage of any script-based application that requires the database engine without configuring anything manually. You can select Hepsia on the VPS configuration page and your brand new server will be up and running within the hour, so you can log in and begin building your web sites straight away. When you create a brand-new database and start the app installation process, our system will pick the engine for this database automatically. In this way, you can install different apps at the same time without the need to configure anything on the Virtual Private Server. You can have a WordPress-powered online journal that uses the default MySQL engine – MyISAM, and a Magento-driven e-commerce site that makes use of the InnoDB engine, for example.

InnoDB in Dedicated Web Hosting

All dedicated web hosting ordered with our custom Hepsia Control Panel include a software bundle that is pre-installed and besides everything else, you will get the InnoDB database engine, so you will not need to install it manually if you need to activate PHP scripts that need it. All it takes to run such a script is to create a new database and to begin the setup – once the installer wizard obtains access to the database and starts inserting content into it, InnoDB will be set as the default MySQL engine for this database provided that it is the one required by the script. You’ll also be able to install scripts that require MyISAM, the other very popular MySQL engine, so you won’t have to modify any settings on the dedicated server. This will permit you to run various scripts on a single machine and to use it to its full capacity.
