InnoDB is a popular database storage engine for MySQL. It’s an alternative to the default MyISAM engine and it has got plenty of advantages that have made it the preferred engine for numerous script-driven software apps, among them Magento and Joomla, which have switched to InnoDB for good. For example, adding large volumes of data will be much faster with InnoDB, because it locks only a single database row to execute a given operation, not the entire database table, which makes the engine ideal for scalable applications. InnoDB also supports foreign keys and transactions – these refer to the way in which the information is tackled. In simpler words, appending new or updating existent data will either be entirely completed, or will be canceled and the operation will be rolled back in case some problem appears during the process, which is why the content that remains in the database will not be damaged.

InnoDB in Shared Website Hosting

Every PHP script-based app that needs InnoDB will run impeccably on our leading-edge cloud platform and the storage engine is available with all our shared website hosting plans. Every time you create a MySQL database manually or our app installer tool creates one automatically and an app installation is initiated, the engine that the database will use will be selected based on the app’s prerequisites without the need to update any setting in your shared account. InnoDB will be chosen automatically for any app that requires this specific engine and you’ll be able to get the most out of its full capacity. We will perform regular backups of your content, so if you accidentally erase a database that is important to you or you overwrite some part of it, we will be able to restore your content the way it was only several hours ago.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Servers

InnoDB comes with all our Linux semi-dedicated hosting plans by default, so as soon as you obtain a new account, you can go ahead and activate any open-source script-powered application that needs this storage engine. A couple of engines are installed on our cloud website hosting platform, so when you create a brand new database and begin installing an application manually, or decide to make use of the Hepsia Control Panel-integrated application installer, the engine for the database will be selected in accordance with the particular app’s prerequisites. This will allow you to activate and run InnoDB-specific apps without experiencing any complication and without needing to modify any settings in your account. To take no chances, we will always have a seven-day-old backup of all your MySQL databases, so if you delete or edit any content unintentionally, we can easily rescue it.

InnoDB in VPS Servers

All Linux VPS servers that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel come with InnoDB already installed, so you’ll be able to run any PHP-based web app that requires this MySQL storage engine without having to configure anything manually. You can pick Hepsia on the VPS order form and your brand-new server will be up and running within one hour, so you can sign in and begin building your sites straight 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 use different apps simultaneously without changing anything on the server. You can have a WordPress-based personal journal that uses MyISAM – the default MySQL engine, and a Magento-based e-commerce site that uses the InnoDB engine, for example.

InnoDB in Dedicated Servers

Our Hepsia Control Panel is one of the features that you can pick on the order form when you purchase a dedicated server from our company. As this is the most powerful type of web hosting, it’s very likely that you’ll manage popular Internet sites that will draw plenty of people, and since InnoDB is one of the very best choices for such Internet sites, we’ll install it along with all the other software applications that come with a Hepsia-equipped dedicated server. If you create a new database in your account, there won’t be any activated MySQL database storage engine till you begin installing a script, whether manually through your Internet browser or using the automatic scripts installer that is integrated into the hosting Control Panel. The needed engine will be detected automatically and will be set for that database, so you can install scripts that require InnoDB, as well as ones that require MyISAM, the default MySQL engine, without any difficulty.
