InnoDB is a popular database engine for MySQL. It is an alternative to the default MyISAM engine and it has numerous strong sides which have made it the engine of choice for a lot of PHP script-powered applications, among them Magento and Joomla, which have switched to InnoDB for good. For instance, adding huge amounts of data will be much faster with InnoDB, since it locks only a single database row to execute a task, not the entire table, which makes the engine perfect for scalable applications. It also supports foreign keys and database transactions – these refer to the way in which the info is treated. To put it simply, adding new or updating existing data will either be fully completed, or will be annulled and the operation will be rolled back in case a given problem occurs during the process, hence the content that remains in the database will not be lost.

InnoDB in Shared Website Hosting

You will be able to run any PHP script-powered app that needs InnoDB in case you’ve got a shared website hosting with us, as the MySQL database storage engine is present on our advanced cloud web hosting platform by default. Throughout the app installation – manual or automatic, InnoDB will be selected as the default engine and the setup process will proceed flawlessly if this engine is required. You can run apps which require the MyISAM engine without the need to deal with any difficulty as well and, again, the engine will be selected automatically, so you won’t need to edit anything manually at any moment. What’s more, we’ll also perform regular backups of all the MySQL databases that you’ve got in your account, so if you delete or overwrite anything, we can easily restore it the way it was on any of the previous 7 days.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you create a new MySQL database from the Control Panel offered with each of our semi-dedicated server accounts and you begin installing a PHP script-driven software app either manually or using our single-click application installer, the storage engine for the database will be selected automatically based on the requirements of the specific app. Since InnoDB is present on the cloud website hosting platform where your new semi-dedicated server account will be created, it will be set as the default engine for any app that requires it without any manual intervention required on your end at any time. To prevent any chance of losing information if you update an application or if you erase a database accidentally, we will generate a backup of all your databases each and every day, so if something happens, we can retrieve your content.

InnoDB in VPS Web Hosting

All Linux VPS web hosting services that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel come with InnoDB pre-activated, so you will be able to take advantage of any PHP script-driven software app that needs this database engine without configuring anything manually. You can choose Hepsia on the VPS order page and your brand new Virtual Private Server will be ready within 60 minutes, so you can log in and start creating your web sites straight away. Once you set up a brand new MySQL database and begin the app activation process, our system will set the engine for that MySQL database automatically. In this way, you can make use of various apps simultaneously without having to edit anything on the server. You can create a WordPress-based online journal that uses the default MySQL engine – MyISAM, and a Magento-driven online store that makes use of InnoDB, for instance.

InnoDB in Dedicated Servers Hosting

InnoDB is available as standard with all dedicated servers hosting ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. It is included in the software bundle that will be pre-installed on all Hepsia-equipped dedicated servers, so once your machine is ready, you’ll be able to sign in and to install any kind of script-powered software app that requires this MySQL database engine. If you create a new database through the hosting Control Panel, there won’t be any activated engine till you start installing an app. Once the app installation wizard begins entering content into the newly created database, the engine will be picked automatically on the basis of the requirements of the specific app, so you can use both MyISAM and InnoDB without the need to select either one of them specifically at any time. In this way, you can make use of an extensive variety of apps for your sites.
