InnoDB is a very popular database storage engine for MySQL. It is an alternative to the default engine – MyISAM, and it has got plenty of strong sides that have made it the preferred engine for lots of PHP-driven apps, such as Magento and Joomla, which have switched over to InnoDB for good. For example, importing immense data volumes will be faster with InnoDB, as it locks only a single row to execute a given task, not the entire database table, which makes the engine excellent for scalable apps. InnoDB also supports foreign keys and transactions – these refer to the manner in which the information is tackled. Simply put, adding new or modifying existent data will either be entirely completed, or will be aborted and the procedure will be rolled back in case a certain problem shows up in the meantime, hence the content that remains in the database will not be lost.

InnoDB in Website Hosting

While InnoDB is either not offered or it is a paid upgrade with many hosting companies, it’s an integral part of the standard set of services that we’re offering with our website hosting packages. In case you wish to make use of a PHP-powered web application that requires InnoDB specifically, in order to be installed and to function correctly, you will not face any problems because the database engine is available on our custom-developed cloud platform. Irrespective of whether you set up a brand new MySQL database and install an app manually or take advantage of our one-click application installer software instrument, InnoDB will be selected automatically by our platform as the default engine if the application requires it rather than MyISAM. In addition to the exceptional database failure recovery that InnoDB is offering, we also maintain daily database backups, so that we can easily recover any MySQL database in your shared web hosting account.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting

InnoDB is available with all our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages by default, so the moment you get a new account, you can move on and activate any script-based software app that needs the MySQL storage engine. A couple of engines are installed on our cloud hosting platform, so when you set up a brand new MySQL database and start installing an application manually, or opt to make use of the Hepsia Control Panel-integrated app installer tool, the engine for the database will be set based on the prerequisites of the particular app. This will permit you to activate and manage InnoDB-specific applications without having to deal with any problem and without needing to update any settings in your semi-dedicated account. To avoid any risk, we’ll always have a 1-week-old backup of all your MySQL databases, so if you erase or alter any content by mistake, we can easily retrieve it.

InnoDB in VPS Web Hosting

If you order a virtual private server with our Hepsia Control Panel, the InnoDB database engine will be an integral part of the standard software package that will be pre-installed on your server before we hand it over to you. You will not have to configure anything manually and you will be able to install and use any script-driven software application that requires InnoDB as soon as your Virtual Private Server is ready, which takes no more than 60 minutes after the order procedure itself. A couple of engines are available, so whenever you create a database using the Hepsia Control Panel, a specific engine will be activated when the app installation process commences and our system will detect the engine that is required by the app in question. If you have to use MyISAM, for instance, you won’t have to do anything different than installing the chosen application, whether manually or using our app installer tool.

InnoDB in Dedicated Servers Hosting

InnoDB is available as standard with all dedicated servers hosting packages ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. It is part of the standard software bundle that will be installed on all Hepsia-equipped servers, so once your machine is set up, you’ll be able to sign in and to install any type of open-source script-powered web application that requires this database storage engine. When you set up a new MySQL database via the hosting Control Panel, there won’t be any activated engine until you begin installing an application. Once the app installation wizard starts entering information into the newly created database, the engine will be selected automatically on the basis of the prerequisites of the specific application, so you can run both InnoDB and MyISAM without selecting either one of them explicitly at any moment. In this way, you can use an immense selection of applications for your Internet sites.
