InnoDB is a very popular storage engine for the MySQL RDBMS. It is an alternative to the default engine – MyISAM, and it has a lot of pluses that make it the preferred engine for plenty of PHP script-powered software apps, among them Magento and Joomla, which have moved to InnoDB for good. For instance, importing immense amounts of data will be faster with InnoDB, since it locks only one database 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 database transactions – these refer to the manner in which the data is handled. To put it simply, importing new or editing existent data will either be thoroughly completed, or will be aborted and the operation will be rolled back in case a certain issue appears during the process, hence the content that remains in the database won’t be damaged.

InnoDB in Shared Hosting

You will be able to run any open-source script-powered software application that needs InnoDB if you have a Linux shared hosting with our company, as the MySQL database storage engine is available on our innovative cloud website hosting platform as standard. During the app installation – manual or automatic, InnoDB will be selected as the default engine and the setup process will continue impeccably in case this engine is required. You can run apps which use the MyISAM engine without encountering any difficulty as well and, once again, the engine will be pre-selected, so you will not need to change anything manually at any time. Furthermore, we will also make daily backups of all the databases that you’ve got in your account, so in case you delete or overwrite something, we can easily restore it the way it was on any of the past 7 days.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can use a script-driven software application that requires InnoDB with all of our semi-dedicated server packages, as all the accounts are created on our avant-garde cloud web hosting platform where the MySQL storage engine is installed. A new MySQL database can be set up in two ways – manually through the Database Manager section of the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, or automatically – in case you use our 1-click application installer tool. In either case, the needed engine will be picked automatically the moment the installation of the application starts, so you will not have to change anything manually, irrespective of whether the app requires InnoDB or the more regularly used MyISAM. Also, we’ll always be able to retrieve any of your MySQL databases in case you accidentally delete one, as we make a few MySQL database backups every day, each of which is kept for 1 whole week.

InnoDB in VPS Servers

All VPS servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel come with InnoDB already activated, so you will be able to run any open-source script-powered software application that needs this MySQL database storage engine without activating anything manually. You can select Hepsia on the VPS order form and your brand new Virtual Private Server will be set up within 1 hour, so you can log in and start building your websites right away. Once you set up a new MySQL database and start the app installation process, our system will set the engine for this MySQL database automatically. In this way, you can make use of different applications simultaneously without the need to change anything on the Virtual Private Server. You can have a WordPress-based blog that uses the default MySQL engine – MyISAM, and a Magento-driven e-commerce portal that uses the InnoDB engine, for example.

InnoDB in Dedicated Servers

Our Hepsia hosting Control Panel is among the options that you can select on the order page when you buy a dedicated server from us. Since this is the most powerful kind of web hosting, it’s rather likely that you’ll run very popular websites that will draw plenty of people, and since InnoDB is one of the very best options for such sites, we will enable it together with all the other software apps that are available with a Hepsia-equipped dedicated server. If you set up a new database in your dedicated account, there won’t be any activated MySQL storage engine until you begin installing an open-source PHP script, whether manually through your browser or using the automatic script installer that is integrated into the hosting Control Panel. The needed engine will be recognized automatically and will be set for the database in question, so you can install scripts that need InnoDB, as well as ones that need MyISAM – the default MySQL engine, without encountering any problem.
