InnoDB is a very popular storage engine for the MySQL relational database management system. It’s an alternative to the default engine – MyISAM, and it has lots of advantages that have made it the engine of choice for plenty of open-source script-based apps, among them Magento and Joomla, which have moved to InnoDB for good. For example, importing huge volumes of data will be much faster with InnoDB, due to the fact that it locks only one row to carry out a given operation, not the entire database table, which makes the engine perfect for scalable apps. InnoDB also supports foreign keys and transactions – these refer to the manner in which the data is tackled. Put simply, appending new or modifying existing data will either be thoroughly completed, or will be aborted and the procedure will be rolled back if any issue occurs in the meantime, hence the content that remains in the database will not be lost.

InnoDB in Web Hosting

Every script-driven web application that requires InnoDB will function impeccably on our innovative cloud platform and the database storage engine is available with all our web hosting packages. Each time you create a database manually or our app installer tool creates one automatically and an app installation is initiated, the engine that the database in question will use will be selected in accordance with the app’s specifications without the need to modify any setting in your shared account. InnoDB will be selected automatically for any app that requires this specific engine and you’ll be able to take advantage of its full capacity. We will store daily content backups, so if you unintentionally delete a MySQL database that is important to you or you overwrite specific parts of it, we will be able to restore your database the way it was just several hours earlier.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you set up a new MySQL database from the Control Panel offered with each of our semi-dedicated server packages and you start installing a PHP-based web application either manually or using our one-click app installer tool, the storage engine for the database will be set automatically depending on the prerequisites of the specific application. As InnoDB is present on the cloud web hosting platform where your new semi-dedicated server account will be set up, it will be set as the default engine for any application that requires it without the need for any manual action on your end at any moment. To avoid any risk of losing info if you update an app or if you erase a database by accident, we’ll carry out backups of all your databases every day, so if something happens, we can rescue your content.

InnoDB in VPS

All Linux VPS packages that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel come with InnoDB already installed, so you’ll be able to use any script-powered app that needs this database storage engine without needing to configure anything manually. You can choose Hepsia on the VPS order form and your brand new Virtual Private Server will be up and running within the hour, so you can log in and begin building your websites right away. When you create a brand new MySQL database and begin the app installation process, our system will choose the engine for that database automatically. In this way, you can activate various apps simultaneously without changing anything on the VPS server. You can have a WordPress-powered personal weblog that uses the default MySQL engine – MyISAM, and a Magento online shop that makes use of the InnoDB engine, for example.

InnoDB in Dedicated Hosting

InnoDB is available as standard with all Linux dedicated servers hosting packages ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It is part of the software package that will be installed on all Hepsia-managed servers, so as soon as your machine is set up, you’ll be able to log in and to activate any type of open-source script-powered app that requires this MySQL database engine. When you create a new database via the Control Panel, there won’t be any activated engine till you begin installing an app. As soon as the app configuration wizard begins inserting content into the database, the engine will be picked automatically depending on the prerequisites of the given app, so you can run both InnoDB and MyISAM without the need to select either of them specifically at any point. Therefore, you can use a vast variety of apps for your sites.
