InnoDB is a very popular storage engine for the MySQL RDBMS. It is an alternative to the default MyISAM engine and it has got plenty of strong sides that make it the engine of choice for plenty of open-source script-based software applications, such as Magento and Joomla, which have shifted over to InnoDB permanently. For instance, adding large data volumes will be much faster with InnoDB, since it locks only one row to complete a certain task, not the entire table, which makes the engine excellent for scalable applications. It also supports foreign keys and database transactions – these refer to the way in which the data is handled. In simpler words, adding new or editing existent data will either be fully completed, or will be annulled and the operation will be rolled back in case some issue appears during the process, therefore the content that remains in the database will not be lost.

InnoDB in Cloud Hosting

While InnoDB is either not offered or it is a paid upgrade with other web hosting providers, it’s an integral part of the default set of features offered with our cloud hosting packages. If you’d like to make use of an open-source script-based software app that requires InnoDB in particular, in order to be installed and to function correctly, you won’t encounter any problems as the MySQL database storage engine is available on our in-house built cloud platform. No matter if you create a brand new MySQL database and activate an application manually or take advantage of our single-click application installer instrument, InnoDB will be selected automatically by our platform as the default engine if the app requires InnoDB instead of MyISAM. In addition to the exceptional database crash recovery offered by InnoDB, we also store regular database backups, so we can easily restore any MySQL database in your shared account.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you set up a brand new MySQL database through the Control Panel provided with all our semi-dedicated server accounts and you start installing an open-source script-powered software application either manually or using our single-click application installer tool, the storage engine for the MySQL database will be set automatically depending on the prerequisites of the specific application. As InnoDB is present on the cloud web hosting platform where your new semi-dedicated server account will be set up, it will be set as the default engine for any app that requires it without any manual intervention needed on your end at any point. To avoid any chance of losing information if you update an application or if you erase a database by accident, we will perform backups of all your databases each and every day, so if anything happens, we can recover your content.

InnoDB in VPS Hosting

All Linux VPS hosting services that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel come with InnoDB pre-installed, so you will be able to use any PHP script-powered software application that needs this database engine without the need to set up anything manually. You can select Hepsia on the VPS order form and your brand-new server will be up and running within 60 minutes, so you can log in and begin setting up your websites straight away. When you set up a brand-new MySQL database and begin the app installation process, our system will select the engine for that database automatically. Thus, you can install various applications at the same time without the need to change anything on the VPS server. You can create a WordPress-powered personal journal that makes use of MyISAM – the default MySQL engine, and a Magento online shop that makes use of InnoDB, for instance.

InnoDB in Dedicated Web Hosting

All dedicated web hosting that are ordered with our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel come with a software bundle that’s pre-installed and among everything else, you’ll get the InnoDB database storage engine, so you won’t need to add it manually in case you need to activate PHP scripts that need it. All it takes to use such a script is to set up a new database and to begin the installation process – once the installation wizard gets access to the database and starts entering data into it, InnoDB will be set as the default MySQL engine for this database provided that it is the one needed by the script. You will also be able to run scripts that need the other popular MySQL engine, MyISAM, so you will not need to configure any settings on the dedicated server. This will allow you to use a variety of scripts on a single server and to use the latter to its maximum potential.
