InnoDB is a very popular database storage engine for MySQL. It is an alternative to the default engine – MyISAM, and it has a lot of strong sides that make it the engine of choice for lots of open-source script-driven applications, such as Magento and Joomla, which have switched over to InnoDB for good. For example, importing enormous data volumes will be much faster with InnoDB, as it locks only one database row to complete a given task, not the entire database table, which makes the engine excellent for scalable apps. It also supports foreign keys and database transactions – these refer to the way in which the info is treated. Put simply, appending new or updating existing data will either be thoroughly completed, or will be annulled and the operation will be rolled back if some problem occurs in the meantime, so the content that remains in the database won’t be damaged.

InnoDB in Cloud Web Hosting

Every open-source script-powered web application that needs InnoDB will run flawlessly on our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform and the MySQL database storage engine comes with all our cloud web hosting packages. Every time you create a MySQL database manually or our app installer creates one automatically and an app installation process is initiated, the engine that the database will make use of will be selected based on the app’s specifications without the need to modify any setting in your hosting account. InnoDB will be selected automatically for any app that requires this specific engine and you’ll be able to make the most of its full capacity. We’ll keep regular backups of your content, so in case you accidentally remove a MySQL database that you need or you overwrite specific parts of it, we’ll be able to restore the database the way it was just a few hours earlier.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can use a PHP script-based web application that requires InnoDB with any of our semi-dedicated server plans, because all the accounts are created on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform where the MySQL storage engine is installed. A new database can be created in two separate ways – manually from the Database Manager section of the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, or automatically – if you use our 1-click application installer. In either case, the required engine will be chosen automatically as soon as the installation of the application starts, so you won’t have to update anything manually, irrespective of whether the application needs InnoDB or the more widely used MyISAM. In addition, we’ll always be able to retrieve any of your databases in case you erase one by accident, as we generate a few MySQL database backups every day, each of which is kept for seven days.

InnoDB in VPS Servers

All VPS plans that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel come with InnoDB already installed, so you will be able to make use of any open-source script-powered software application that needs this MySQL database engine without activating anything manually. You can pick Hepsia on the VPS order form and your brand-new VPS server will be up and running within sixty minutes, so you can sign in and start setting up your Internet sites straight away. Once you set up a new MySQL database and begin the app installation process, our system will choose the engine for that MySQL database automatically. In this way, you can manage different applications at the same time without updating anything on the Virtual Private Server. You can have a WordPress-driven personal journal that makes use of MyISAM – the default MySQL engine, and a Magento web store that uses InnoDB, for example.

InnoDB in Dedicated Servers

InnoDB is included by default with all dedicated web hosting plans that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. It is part of the software package that will be installed on all Hepsia-managed servers, so once your machine is ready, you’ll be able to sign in and to activate any script-based web app that requires this particular database engine. If you set up a new MySQL database through the Control Panel, there won’t be any activated engine till you start installing an application. As soon as the app configuration wizard starts dumping content in the database, the engine will be chosen automatically based on the particular app’s requirements, so you can run both InnoDB and MyISAM without having to select either one of them specifically at any time. In this way, you can use an extensive selection of apps for your Internet sites.
