InnoDB is a very popular database engine for the MySQL relational database management system. It’s an alternative to the default engine – MyISAM, and it has plenty of strong sides that make it the preferred engine for plenty of open-source script-based software apps, including Joomla and Magento, which have shifted over to InnoDB for good. For instance, importing huge amounts of data will be faster with InnoDB, due to the fact that it locks only one database row to accomplish a task, not the entire database table, which makes the engine excellent for scalable apps. It also supports foreign keys and database transactions – these refer to the way in which the info is handled. Put simply, importing new or updating existing data will either be entirely completed, or will be canceled and the operation will be rolled back in case any issue shows up in the meantime, thus the content that remains in the database will not be lost.

InnoDB in Cloud Hosting

InnoDB is available with all our Linux cloud hosting packages by default, not upon request or as a paid upgrade, so you will be able to activate and manage any open-source script-powered software application which requires the MySQL database storage engine without having to deal with any impediment once you activate your shared website hosting account. InnoDB will be selected automatically as the default engine for a specific MySQL database during the app installation process, regardless of whether you take advantage of our one-click installer or create the MySQL database and install the app manually, as long as the app requires InnoDB instead of the more popular MyISAM engine. We’ll carry out regular MySQL database backups, so you can rest assured that you will never lose any data if you erase a database by mistake or you overwrite some vital information – you will just have to notify us and we will restore everything back to normal.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages support InnoDB and you’ll be able to take full advantage of all the features offered by this MySQL database storage engine with any PHP script-based app that needs it. It’s one of the engines that are available on our cloud website hosting platform, so the one that will be picked depends on the particular app’s prerequisites. You won’t have to do anything manually to enable InnoDB, because it will be set as the default engine whenever you install an application – whether manually or using our single-click app installer tool. To avoid any risk, we will make daily backups of all your MySQL databases, so if something goes wrong after some update or if you erase some data unintentionally, we will be able to get your database back to the way it was on any of the past 7 days.

InnoDB in VPS

If you select a virtual private server with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, the InnoDB database engine will be an indivisible part of the software bundle that will be pre-installed on your server before we give it to you. You won’t need to configure anything manually and you will be able to install and run any script-driven web app that needs InnoDB once your VPS is ready, which takes no more than 60 minutes after the order submission process itself. Several engines are offered, so anytime you set up a database via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, a specific engine will be activated once the app installation process commences and our system will detect which engine is required by the app in question. If you need MyISAM, for instance, you will not need to do anything different than installing the app of your preference, whether manually or using our application installer tool.

InnoDB in Dedicated Hosting

InnoDB is available as standard with all Linux dedicated servers hosting packages ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It’s an essential part of the standard software package that will be installed on all Hepsia-equipped servers, so once your machine is assembled, you will be able to log in and to activate any kind of PHP-driven web app that needs this particular MySQL storage engine. If you set up a new database via the Control Panel, there won’t be any activated engine until you begin installing an app. As soon as the app setup wizard starts entering data into the newly created database, the engine will be selected automatically depending on the prerequisites of the given application, so you can run both InnoDB and MyISAM without having to select either one explicitly at any time. Therefore, you can make use of an extensive variety of apps for your websites.
