InnoDB is a popular database storage engine for MySQL. It is an alternative to the default MyISAM engine and it has got lots of pluses which have made it the engine of choice for lots of PHP-based apps, among them Magento and Joomla, which have switched to InnoDB for good. For example, adding large amounts of data will be faster with InnoDB, as it locks only one database row to perform an operation, not the entire table, which makes the engine ideal for scalable apps. It also supports foreign keys and transactions – these refer to the way in which the information is tackled. Simply put, adding new or updating existing data will either be entirely completed, or will be annulled and the operation will be rolled back in case a certain issue shows up during the process, which is why the content that remains in the database won’t be damaged.

InnoDB in Cloud Website Hosting

InnoDB is available with all our cloud website hosting services by default, not upon request or as a paid upgrade, so you’ll be able to install and run any PHP-based app which needs the database storage engine without the need to deal with any difficulty as soon as you open your account. InnoDB will be selected automatically as the default engine for a certain database during the app installation, no matter if you make use of our 1-click installation tool or create the database and set up the app manually, as long as the app requires InnoDB instead of the more popular MyISAM engine. We’ll perform daily backups of all your MySQL databases, so you can be certain that you will never lose any content if you erase a database by accident or you overwrite some vital info – you’ll simply have to get in touch with us and we will restore your database the way it was.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting services come with InnoDB and you will be able to make use of all the features of this MySQL database engine with any open-source script-driven web application that needs it. InnoDB is among the engines that are available on our cloud platform, so the one that will be picked depends on the prerequisites of the specific application. You won’t have to do anything manually in order to activate InnoDB, since it will be set as the default engine whenever you install an app – whether manually or using our single-click app installer tool. To be on the safe side, we’ll keep regular database backups, so if something goes wrong after some update or if you remove some content by accident, we will be able to get the database back to the way it was on any of the past 7 days.

InnoDB in VPS Hosting

If you select a virtual private server with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, the InnoDB database storage engine will be an indivisible part of the software bundle that will be pre-installed on your server before we hand it over to you. You will not have to configure anything manually and you will be able to install and manage any script-based software application that needs InnoDB once your Virtual Private Server is ready, which takes no more than one hour after the order submission itself. A couple of engines are offered, so every time you create a database through the Hepsia Control Panel, a specific engine will be selected once the app activation process commences and our system will recognize which engine is required by the app in question. In case you have to use MyISAM, for instance, you won’t need to do anything different from installing the app of your preference, whether manually or using our application installer tool.

InnoDB in Dedicated Web Hosting

Our Hepsia Control Panel is one of the options that you can pick on the server order page when you buy a dedicated server from our company. Since this is the most powerful type of hosting, it is quite likely that you’ll run popular websites that will attract lots of visitors, and since InnoDB is one of the best choices for such Internet sites, we’ll install it along with all the other software apps that are available with a Hepsia-equipped dedicated server. When you set up a new database in your account, there won’t be any activated database storage engine till you begin installing a PHP script, whether manually through your Internet browser or using the automatic scripts installer tool that is available in the Control Panel. The necessary engine will be recognized and will be set for the database in question, so you can activate scripts that need InnoDB, as well as ones that require MyISAM, the default MySQL engine, without running into any difficulty.
