InnoDB is a popular storage engine for the MySQL relational database management system. It is an alternative to the default engine – MyISAM, and it has a number of pluses that make it the engine of choice for many PHP script-driven applications, among them Joomla and Magento, which have switched over to InnoDB permanently. For example, adding large volumes of data will be much faster with InnoDB, due to the fact that it locks only one database row to perform a specific task, not the entire database table, which makes the engine perfect for scalable applications. InnoDB also supports foreign keys and database transactions – these refer to the manner in which the data is treated. To put it simply, adding new or editing existing data will either be entirely completed, or will be canceled and the procedure will be rolled back in case a given issue appears during the process, therefore the content that remains in the database won’t be damaged.

InnoDB in Cloud Hosting

Any open-source script-powered web app that needs InnoDB will function flawlessly on our innovative cloud web hosting platform and the MySQL database engine comes with all our cloud hosting plans. Whenever you create a MySQL database manually or our app installer creates one automatically and an app installation process is started, the engine that the database will make use of will be selected in accordance with the app’s specifications without having to change any setting in your shared web hosting account. InnoDB will be selected automatically for any application that requires this particular engine and you will be able to make the most of its full potential. We will carry out daily backups of your content, so in case you accidentally remove a database that you need or you overwrite a certain part of it, we will be able to restore your content the way it was just several hours earlier.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you create a brand-new MySQL database from the Control Panel offered with each of our semi-dedicated server packages and you begin installing a script-driven web app either manually or using our single-click application installer tool, the storage engine for the MySQL database will be selected automatically on the basis of the specific app’s requirements. As InnoDB is present on the cloud website hosting platform where your new semi-dedicated account will be set up, it will be set as the default engine for each application that requires it without any manual action needed on your end at any time. To avoid any risk of losing information if you update an app or if you erase a database accidentally, we will perform a backup of all your databases each day, so if anything happens, we can restore your content.

InnoDB in VPS Servers

All VPS plans that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel come with InnoDB already activated, so you’ll be able to use any script-powered software app that needs this particular database storage engine without having to install anything manually. You can pick Hepsia on the VPS order page and your brand new Virtual Private Server will be set up within the hour, so you can log in and start creating your web sites straight away. When you set up a brand new MySQL database and begin the app activation process, our system will pick the engine for this database automatically. In this way, you can manage different apps at the same time without modifying anything on the server. You can create a WordPress-driven personal blog that makes use of MyISAM – the default MySQL engine, and a Magento web shop that makes use of the InnoDB engine, for instance.

InnoDB in Dedicated Servers

Our Hepsia Control Panel is one of the options which you can select on the server order page when you purchase a dedicated server from our company. Since this is the most powerful type of website hosting, it’s rather likely that you will run very popular sites that will draw lots of visitors, and since InnoDB is among the best choices for such sites, we will enable it along with all the other software apps that are offered with a Hepsia-managed dedicated server. When you create a brand-new database in your dedicated server account, there won’t be any activated database engine until you start installing a script, whether manually through your web browser or using the automatic scripts installation tool that is available in the Control Panel. The necessary engine will be detected and will be assigned to the database in question, so you can run scripts that need InnoDB, as well as ones that need the default MySQL engine – MyISAM, without needing to cope with any impediment.
