InnoDB is a very popular storage engine for the MySQL database management system. It is an alternative to the default engine – MyISAM, and it has many strong sides that have made it the engine of choice for plenty of open-source script-based software apps, including Magento and Joomla, which have switched over to InnoDB permanently. For instance, importing enormous data volumes will be much faster with InnoDB, due to the fact that it locks only one database row to execute an operation, not the entire table, which makes the engine excellent for scalable applications. It also supports foreign keys and transactions – these refer to the way in which the information is handled. Put simply, importing new or modifying existent data will either be fully completed, or will be canceled and the procedure will be rolled back if some problem appears during the process, thus the content that remains in the database will not be lost.
InnoDB in Hosting
While InnoDB is either not offered or it is a paid upgrade with many hosting providers, it is an integral part of the default set of services that we’re offering with our hosting packages. If you wish to make use of a PHP script-based software application that needs InnoDB particularly, in order to be installed and to perform properly, you won’t need to deal with any obstacles because the storage engine is available on our custom-developed cloud platform. Irrespective of whether you set up a brand new database and install an application manually or use our one-click app installer instrument, InnoDB will be selected automatically by our platform as the default engine if the particular app needs it instead of MyISAM. In addition to the amazing database crash recovery that InnoDB offers, we also store regular database backups, so we can swiftly restore any MySQL database in your shared web hosting account.
InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Servers
InnoDB is included with each of our semi-dedicated hosting plans by default, so as soon as you obtain a new semi-dedicated account, you can go ahead and activate any PHP script-powered application that needs this MySQL storage engine. A number of engines are installed on our cloud web hosting platform, so when you create a brand-new database and begin installing an application manually, or decide to make use of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel-integrated application installer, the engine for the database will be chosen based on the specific app’s requirements. This will permit you to install and manage InnoDB-specific apps without the need to deal with any impediment and without the need to configure any settings in your account.

InnoDB in VPS Servers
When you obtain a VPS server from our company, you’ll be able to take advantage of our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel to manage your content. A Hepsia-managed VPS will permit you to run any PHP script-powered web application which needs InnoDB, as this particular database storage engine is included in the default software bundle that will be pre-installed on the server during its setup.

InnoDB will be set as the default engine as long as the application in question needs it, so you won’t need to do anything else in your account.

InnoDB in Dedicated Servers
All dedicated web hosting plans that are ordered with our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel come with a software bundle that is pre-installed and among everything else, you will get the InnoDB database storage engine, so you will not have to install it manually if you need to activate scripts that need it. All it takes to activate such a script is to create a new MySQL database and to begin the setup process – once the script configuration wizard gains access to the database and starts inserting content into it, InnoDB will be set as the default engine for this database on the condition that it is the one needed by the script. You’ll also be able to activate scripts that need the other widely used MySQL engine – MyISAM, so you will not need to update any settings on the dedicated server. This will enable you to activate various scripts on a single machine and to use the latter to its fullest capabilities.
