InnoDB is a popular storage engine for MySQL. It is an alternative to the default engine – MyISAM, and it has got plenty of advantages which make it the engine of choice for plenty of PHP script-powered software applications, among them Magento and Joomla, which have switched to InnoDB permanently. For instance, adding huge amounts of data will be much faster with InnoDB, because it locks only a single row to complete a specific task, not the entire table, which makes the engine perfect for scalable applications. It also supports foreign keys and transactions – these refer to the way in which the information is tackled. Simply put, importing new or editing existing data will either be entirely completed, or will be canceled and the procedure will be rolled back in case a given issue occurs in the meantime, therefore the content that remains in the database will not be lost.

InnoDB in Cloud Hosting

You will be able to install any PHP-based software app that requires InnoDB in case you’ve got a cloud hosting service with us, as the MySQL database engine is present on our avant-garde cloud platform as standard. During the app installation – manual or automatic, InnoDB will be selected as the default engine and the setup will continue impeccably if this engine is needed. You can run applications that need the MyISAM engine without the need to deal with any complication as well and, once again, the engine will be pre-selected, so you won’t have to edit anything manually at any time. On top of that, we will also create daily backups of all the MySQL databases that you’ve got in your shared account, so if you erase or overwrite something, we can quickly get it back to the way it was on any of the previous seven days.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our semi-dedicated hosting service come with InnoDB and you’ll be able to make the most of all the features offered by this MySQL database engine with any script-based software application that needs it. It’s among the engines that we have on our cloud hosting platform, so the one that will be used depends on the prerequisites of the given app. You won’t have to do anything manually to activate InnoDB, since it will be set as the default engine whenever you install an application – whether manually or using our single-click application installer tool. To avoid any risk, we’ll create daily database backups, so if anything goes wrong after some update or if you delete some content unintentionally, we will be able to get the database back to the way it was on any of the previous seven days.

InnoDB in VPS Servers

All Linux VPS servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel come with InnoDB pre-installed, so you’ll be able to take advantage of any open-source script-based web app that requires this particular storage engine without the need to configure anything manually. You can select Hepsia on the VPS order form and your brand new Virtual Private Server will be set up within sixty minutes, so you can sign in and start creating your web sites right away. Once you create a brand new MySQL database and start the app activation process, our system will select the engine for that MySQL database automatically. In this way, you can manage different apps simultaneously without modifying anything on the VPS server. You can have a WordPress personal blog that uses the default MySQL engine – MyISAM, and a Magento-based e-commerce website that uses the InnoDB engine, for example.

InnoDB in Dedicated Servers

Our Hepsia Control Panel is one of the features which you can choose on the server order page when you buy a dedicated server from our company. As this is the most powerful kind of website hosting, it’s quite likely that you’ll manage highly popular sites that will attract plenty of visitors, and since InnoDB is one of the best choices for such Internet sites, we will activate it together with all the other software apps that come with a Hepsia-managed server. When you set up a brand-new database in your account, there won’t be any active MySQL database storage engine until you start installing an open-source PHP script, whether manually through your Internet browser or using the automatic scripts installation tool that is available in the Control Panel. The needed engine will be automatically recognized and will be set for the database in question, so you can make use of scripts that require InnoDB, as well as ones that require the default MySQL engine, MyISAM, without needing to cope with any complication.
