InnoDB is a very popular storage engine for MySQL. It is an alternative to the default engine – MyISAM, and it has got lots of upsides that have made it the preferred engine for numerous PHP script-based apps, among them Joomla and Magento, which have shifted over to InnoDB for good. For instance, importing enormous data volumes will be faster with InnoDB, since it locks only one row to carry out a specific operation, not the entire database table, which makes the engine perfect for scalable applications. It also supports foreign keys and transactions – these refer to the manner in which the information is handled. To put it simply, adding new or editing existent data will either be fully completed, or will be canceled and the operation will be rolled back in case some issue shows up in the meantime, which is why the content that remains in the database won’t be lost.

InnoDB in Cloud Hosting

Every PHP script-powered web application that needs InnoDB will run flawlessly on our advanced cloud hosting platform and the MySQL storage engine comes with all our cloud hosting packages. Every time you create a database manually or our app installer creates one automatically and an app installation process is initiated, the engine that the database will make use of will be selected on the basis of the app’s prerequisites without the need to edit any setting in your shared account. InnoDB will be picked automatically for any app that requires this specific engine and you’ll be able to take advantage of its full capacity. We will make daily backups of your content, so in case you accidentally erase a database that is important to you or you overwrite some part of it, we’ll be able to restore your data the way it was only several hours ago.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can use a PHP script-based app that requires InnoDB with all of our semi-dedicated server packages, as all the accounts are set up on our advanced cloud platform where the database storage engine is installed. A new MySQL database can be created in two separate ways – manually through the Database Manager section of the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, or automatically – when you take advantage of our single-click app installer. In either case, the required engine will be chosen automatically the moment the app’s installation begins, so you won’t have to configure anything manually, irrespective of whether the application requires InnoDB or the more commonly used MyISAM. On top of that, we’ll always be able to retrieve any of your MySQL databases if you unintentionally delete one, as we generate a few MySQL database backups every day, each of which is stored for one week.

InnoDB in VPS

When you get a virtual private server from us, you will be able to make use of our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel to manage your content. A Hepsia-managed Virtual Private Server will allow you to install any PHP script-powered web app that requires InnoDB, as this MySQL database engine is part of the default software bundle that will be pre-installed on the Virtual Private Server during its setup. When you create a brand new database using the hosting Control Panel, you will simply need to begin installing an application – manually or using our application installer. InnoDB will be set as the default engine given that the application in question needs it, so you will not have to do anything else in your account. Equivalently, if an app needs MyISAM, it will be automatically set as the default engine for this concrete database.

InnoDB in Dedicated Hosting

Our Hepsia hosting Control Panel is among the options which you can choose on the order page when you purchase a dedicated server from our company. As this is the most powerful kind of hosting, it’s quite likely that you’ll manage highly popular sites that will attract many visitors, and since InnoDB is among the very best choices for such Internet sites, we’ll activate it together with all the other software apps that are offered with a Hepsia-managed server. When you create a brand new database in your account, there won’t be any activated database engine until you start installing an open-source script, whether manually through your browser or using the automatic script installation tool that is included in the hosting 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 need MyISAM – the default MySQL engine, without running into any obstacle.
