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 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.
