InnoDB is a very popular storage engine for MySQL. It is an alternative to the default engine – MyISAM, and it has got plenty of upsides which have made it the preferred engine for plenty of open-source script-powered web applications, among them Joomla and Magento, which have shifted over to InnoDB for good. For instance, adding huge volumes of data will be faster with InnoDB, as it locks only one database row to accomplish a given operation, not the entire database table, which makes the engine perfect for scalable apps. It also supports foreign keys and transactions – these refer to the way in which the info is handled. Put simply, importing new or updating existent data will either be entirely completed, or will be aborted and the operation will be rolled back in case some issue shows up during the process, therefore the content that remains in the database will not be lost.

InnoDB in Cloud Hosting

InnoDB is available with all our cloud hosting by default, not upon request or as a paid upgrade, so you can activate and run any open-source script-based web app which needs the MySQL database engine without having to deal with any obstacle as soon as you activate your shared account. InnoDB will be pre-selected as the default engine for a specific MySQL database during the app activation, regardless of whether you use our 1-click installation tool or create the database and set up the app manually, on the condition that the application requires InnoDB instead of the more popular MyISAM engine. We’ll store daily backups of all your MySQL databases, so you can be sure that you won’t ever lose any data in case you delete a database by mistake or you overwrite some important information – you’ll just need to alert us and we will restore the database back to normal.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can activate a script-based application that needs InnoDB with all of our semi-dedicated server plans, due to the fact that all the accounts are created on our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform where the MySQL database engine is installed. A new MySQL database can be set up in two different ways – manually from the Database Manager section of the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, or automatically – when you make use of our single-click application installer tool. In either case, the needed engine will be picked automatically the moment the installation of the app begins, so you won’t need to edit anything manually, irrespective of whether the app needs InnoDB or the more commonly used MyISAM. In addition, we’ll always be able to recover any of your databases if you remove one by accident, as we make a few MySQL database backups every day, each of which is saved for one week.

InnoDB in Dedicated Servers

Our Hepsia Control Panel is among the options that you can select on the server configuration page when you purchase a dedicated server from us. Since this is the most powerful type of web hosting, it’s very likely that you will run popular Internet sites that will attract plenty of visitors, and since InnoDB is one of the very best options for such websites, we will install it together with all the other software apps that come with a Hepsia-managed dedicated server. If you set up a new database in your dedicated account, there won’t be any active database engine until you begin installing an open-source script, whether manually via your Internet browser or using the automatic scripts installation tool that is included in the Control Panel. The required 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 coming across any difficulty.
