InnoDB is a very popular database engine for MySQL. It is an alternative to the default engine – MyISAM, and it has plenty of upsides that make it the engine of choice for a lot of PHP-driven web applications, including Joomla and Magento, which have shifted over to InnoDB permanently. For example, importing large volumes of data will be much faster with InnoDB, because it locks only a single row to carry out a certain operation, not the entire table, which makes the engine ideal for scalable apps. InnoDB also supports foreign keys and transactions – these refer to the way in which the information is tackled. Simply put, appending new or modifying existent data will either be fully completed, or will be annulled and the operation will be rolled back if a given problem shows up in the meantime, thus the content that remains in the database will not be damaged.

InnoDB in Shared Website Hosting

You will be able to run any PHP script-based software app that needs InnoDB if you have a Linux shared website hosting with our company, as the MySQL database engine is present on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform as standard. Throughout 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 activate apps which require the MyISAM engine without any difficulties as well and, once again, the engine will be selected automatically, so you won’t have to modify anything manually at any time. Furthermore, we’ll also create regular backups of all the MySQL databases that you have in the account, so if you delete or overwrite something, 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 all our semi-dedicated packages by default, so once you buy a new semi-dedicated account, you can move on and activate any PHP-driven app that needs this MySQL storage engine. A number of engines are pre-installed on our cloud website hosting platform, so when you set up a new MySQL database and begin installing an application manually, or opt to make use of the Hepsia Control Panel-integrated application installer tool, the engine for the database will be selected in accordance with the prerequisites of the app in question. This will allow you to activate and run InnoDB-specific applications without needing to cope with any difficulty and without the need to edit any settings in your semi-dedicated account. To be on the safe side, we’ll always keep a 7-day-old backup of all your MySQL databases, so if you remove or alter any content by mistake, we can quickly restore it.

InnoDB in VPS

If you order a virtual private server with our Hepsia Control Panel, the InnoDB storage engine will be an essential part of the software pack that will be pre-installed on your Virtual Private Server before we give it to you. You won’t need to configure anything manually and you’ll be able to enable and use any PHP script-based app that needs InnoDB when your VPS server is up and running, which takes no more than 60 minutes after the order submission procedure itself. A few engines are offered, so anytime you set up a database using the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, a particular engine will be activated when the app activation starts and our system will automatically recognize the engine that is required by the app in question. If you have to use MyISAM, for instance, you won’t need to do anything different from installing the desired app, whether manually or using our app installer tool.

InnoDB in Dedicated Hosting

Our Hepsia hosting Control Panel is among the options that you can pick on the server order page when you purchase a dedicated server from our company. Since this is the most powerful kind of website hosting, it is rather likely that you’ll run popular Internet sites that will attract many people, and since InnoDB is among the very best choices for such Internet sites, we’ll enable it together with all the other software applications that come with a Hepsia-managed server. If you set up a brand-new MySQL database in your dedicated server account, there won’t be any activated storage engine till you begin installing a script, whether manually via your browser or using the automatic script installer tool that is available in the hosting Control Panel. The necessary engine will be automatically detected and will be assigned to the database in question, so you can make use of scripts that require InnoDB, as well as ones that need the default MySQL engine, MyISAM, without the need to deal with any complication.
