InnoDB is a popular storage engine for the MySQL relational database management system. It’s an alternative to the default MyISAM engine and it has got a number of strengths which make it the engine of choice for numerous PHP-based software applications, including Magento and Joomla, which have switched over to InnoDB for good. For instance, adding immense volumes of data will be much faster with InnoDB, since it locks only a single database row to accomplish a task, not the entire table, which makes the engine ideal for scalable applications. It also supports foreign keys and database transactions – these refer to the way in which the info is handled. To put it simply, adding new or editing existent data will either be entirely completed, or will be canceled and the procedure will be rolled back in case a given problem shows up during the process, which is why the content that remains in the database will not be damaged.

InnoDB in Shared Hosting

While InnoDB is either a paid upgrade or it is not available at all with other web hosting providers, it is part of the default set of features that we’re offering with our shared hosting plans. If you would like to make use of an open-source script-driven software application that needs InnoDB particularly, in order to be activated and to perform correctly, you won’t have to deal with any obstacles since the database engine is available on our in-house built cloud platform. No matter if you create a brand-new database and install an application manually or take advantage of our single-click application installer tool, InnoDB will be selected automatically by our system as the default engine if the app requires InnoDB instead of MyISAM. In addition to the exceptional database failure recovery offered by InnoDB, we also carry out regular backups of all databases, so we can quickly restore any MySQL database in your shared hosting account.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Servers

InnoDB comes with all our semi-dedicated hosting plans by default, so once you purchase a new semi-dedicated account, you can move on and install any PHP-driven web app that needs the storage engine. A couple of engines are pre-installed on our cloud web hosting platform, so when you create a brand-new MySQL database and begin installing an app manually, or decide to use the Hepsia Control Panel-integrated app installer, the engine for the database will be picked based on the prerequisites of the particular app. This will permit you to install and manage InnoDB-specific applications without the need to cope with any obstacle and without needing to configure any settings in your semi-dedicated account. To take no chances, we will always have a 7-day-old backup of all your databases, so if you delete or alter any content by accident, we can quickly recover it.

InnoDB in VPS Servers

All VPS plans that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel come with InnoDB pre-installed, so you will be able to run any PHP-based application that needs this particular MySQL database storage engine without installing anything manually. You can choose Hepsia on the VPS configuration page and your new Virtual Private Server will be ready within 1 hour, so you can sign in and start setting up your web sites right away. Once you set up a brand new database and begin the app activation process, our system will set the engine for that MySQL database automatically. Thus, you can activate various applications simultaneously without the need to change anything on the VPS server. You can set up a WordPress-driven online journal that uses MyISAM – the default MySQL engine, and a Magento-driven shopping portal that makes use of InnoDB, for instance.

Our Hepsia Control Panel is among the features that you can select on the server configuration page when you purchase a dedicated server from our company. As this is the most powerful kind of hosting, it is pretty likely that you’ll run very popular Internet sites that will attract plenty of individuals, and since InnoDB is one of the very best options for such sites, we will install it together with all the other software apps that are offered with a Hepsia-managed server. When you set up a new MySQL database in your account, there won’t be any active MySQL storage engine until you start installing an open-source PHP script, whether manually through your browser or using the automatic scripts installation tool that is included in the Control Panel. The necessary engine will be automatically recognized and will be assigned to that database, so you can make use of scripts that need InnoDB, as well as ones that require the default MySQL engine, MyISAM, without coming across any impediment.
