InnoDB is a popular database engine for the MySQL RDBMS. It is an alternative to the default engine – MyISAM, and it has many advantages that have made it the engine of choice for plenty of script-based software applications, among them Magento and Joomla, which have switched to InnoDB permanently. For instance, importing large amounts of data will be faster with InnoDB, due to the fact that it locks only one database row to perform a given operation, not the entire database table, which makes the engine ideal for scalable applications. InnoDB also supports foreign keys and database transactions – these refer to the way in which the info is treated. Put simply, appending new or updating existent data will either be entirely completed, or will be canceled and the procedure will be rolled back in case a certain issue shows up in the meantime, hence the content that remains in the database won’t be lost.

InnoDB in Shared Hosting

You will be able to activate any PHP script-powered application that requires InnoDB if you’ve got a shared hosting package with us, as the database storage engine is present on our innovative cloud platform as standard. During the app activation – manual or automatic, InnoDB will be selected as the default engine and the setup will proceed flawlessly if this engine is required. You can run applications that use the MyISAM engine without having to deal with any difficulty as well and, once again, the engine will be selected automatically, so you won’t need to configure anything manually at any moment. On top of that, we will also generate regular backups of all the MySQL databases that you’ve got in your account, so if you erase or overwrite anything, we can swiftly get it back to the way it was on any of the previous seven days.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting

InnoDB is included with each of our semi-dedicated hosting packages by default, so the moment you get a new semi-dedicated account, you can go ahead and activate any script-powered software application that needs this database storage engine. A number of engines are pre-installed on our cloud platform, so when you set up a brand-new database and begin installing an application manually, or opt to take advantage of the Hepsia Control Panel-integrated app installer, the engine for the database will be chosen in accordance with the respective app’s requirements. This will allow you to activate and run InnoDB-specific applications without having to cope with any obstacle and without needing to change any settings in your account. To avoid any risk, we will always keep a 1-week-old backup of all your MySQL databases, so if you remove or alter any content accidentally, we can easily rescue it.

InnoDB in VPS

If you pick a virtual private server with our Hepsia Control Panel, the InnoDB storage engine will be part of the software pack that will be pre-installed on your Virtual Private Server before we hand it over to you. You won’t need to set up anything manually and you will be able to install and use any PHP-powered application that needs InnoDB once your VPS is set up, which takes no more than one hour after the order submission itself. A couple of engines are offered, so anytime you set up a database through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, a particular engine will be picked when the app installation commences and our system will automatically detect the engine that is required by the app in question. In case you have to use MyISAM, for example, you will not have to do anything different from installing the app of your preference, whether manually or using our application installer.

InnoDB in Dedicated Hosting

Our Hepsia Control Panel is one of the options that you can choose on the server order page when you purchase a dedicated server from our company. Since this is the most powerful type of hosting, it is rather likely that you will manage highly popular websites that will draw lots of people, and since InnoDB is among the very best choices for such sites, we’ll activate it together with all the other software apps that are available with a Hepsia-managed dedicated server. If you set up a new database in your account, there won’t be any active database storage engine until you start installing a PHP script, whether manually via your web browser or using the automatic scripts installer that is available in the hosting Control Panel. The necessary engine will be detected automatically and will be set for the database in question, so you can use scripts that need InnoDB, as well as ones that need the default MySQL engine – MyISAM, without running into any problem.
