InnoDB is a popular database engine for the MySQL RDBMS. It is an alternative to the default MyISAM engine and it has a lot of pluses that make it the engine of choice for numerous script-driven web applications, such as Magento and Joomla, which have switched over to InnoDB for good. For instance, adding immense amounts of data will be faster with InnoDB, since it locks only a single row to complete a particular operation, not the entire database table, which makes the engine ideal for scalable apps. InnoDB also supports foreign keys and transactions – these refer to the way in which the info is treated. Put simply, appending new or updating existent data will either be entirely completed, or will be annulled and the operation will be rolled back in case a given problem shows up in the meantime, hence the content that remains in the database will not be damaged.

InnoDB in Website Hosting

You will be able to activate any PHP script-based software application that needs InnoDB in case you have a website hosting with our company, as the MySQL storage engine is available on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform by default. During the app activation – manual or automatic, InnoDB will be selected as the default engine and the setup will proceed flawlessly in case this engine is required. You can install applications which need the MyISAM engine without encountering any impediment as well and, once again, the engine will be selected automatically, so you won’t need to modify any setting manually at any moment. What’s more, we’ll also make daily backups of all the MySQL databases that you have in your shared web hosting account, so if you delete or overwrite anything, we can swiftly restore it the way it was on any of the previous 7 days.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Servers

InnoDB is included with all our semi-dedicated hosting plans by default, so once you buy a new semi-dedicated account, you can move on and install any script-powered web app that needs this storage engine. A couple of engines are installed on our cloud hosting platform, so when you create a brand new MySQL database and begin installing an application manually, or decide to use the Hepsia Control Panel-integrated app installer tool, the engine for the database will be selected on the basis of the requirements of the particular app. This will allow you to activate and run InnoDB-specific applications without running into any problem and without having to modify any settings in your account. To take no chances, we’ll always have a 1-week-old backup of all your MySQL databases, so if you remove or edit any content unintentionally, we can easily rescue it.

InnoDB in VPS Servers

All Linux VPS plans that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel come with InnoDB pre-activated, so you’ll be able to use any script-driven web application that needs this particular database storage engine without the need to set up anything manually. You can choose Hepsia on the VPS order page and your brand-new Virtual Private Server will be ready within sixty minutes, so you can sign in and begin creating your Internet sites right away. When you set up a new database and begin the app activation process, our system will choose the engine for this database automatically. In this way, you can run various applications at the same time without having to change anything on the VPS server. You can create a WordPress-driven personal weblog that makes use of MyISAM – the default MySQL engine, and a Magento online shop that uses InnoDB, for instance.

InnoDB in Dedicated Servers

All dedicated web hosting plans ordered with our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel include a software bundle that is pre-installed and besides everything else, you will get the InnoDB database engine, so you won’t need to add it manually in case you want to use open-source PHP scripts that require it. All it takes to activate such a script is to set up a new MySQL database and to begin the setup – once the script installation wizard acquires access to the database in question and begins dumping data in it, InnoDB will be set as the default MySQL engine for this database as long as it is the one required by the particular script. You will also be able to run scripts that need the other widely used MySQL engine – MyISAM, so you will not need to configure any settings on the dedicated server. This will permit you to run a variety of scripts on a single physical machine and to use it to its full capabilities.
