InnoDB is a popular storage engine for the MySQL database management system. It’s an alternative to the default engine – MyISAM, and it has got plenty of advantages that have made it the preferred engine for a lot of PHP script-powered applications, among them Joomla and Magento, which have shifted over to InnoDB permanently. For example, adding immense data volumes will be faster with InnoDB, since it locks only one database row to accomplish a particular operation, not the entire table, which makes the engine excellent for scalable applications. It also supports foreign keys and database transactions – these refer to the way in which the data is tackled. Put simply, adding new or modifying existent data will either be thoroughly completed, or will be canceled and the procedure will be rolled back if a certain issue shows up in the meantime, thus the content that remains in the database will not be lost.

InnoDB in Shared Website Hosting

Any PHP-driven 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 shared website hosting plans. Every time you create a MySQL database manually or our app installer tool creates one automatically and an app installation process is started, 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 picked automatically for any application that requires this particular engine and you’ll be able to take advantage of its full capacity. We will perform daily content backups, so in case you unintentionally delete a database that’s important to you or you overwrite specific parts of it, we’ll be able to restore your database the way it was only several hours ago.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our semi-dedicated plans come with InnoDB and you can take advantage of all the features of this MySQL database storage engine with any open-source script-driven application that needs it. It is one of the engines that are available on our cloud web hosting platform, so the one that will be picked depends on the particular app’s requirements. You will not have to do anything manually in order to enable InnoDB, since it will be set as the default engine whenever you install an app – whether manually or using our single-click application installer. To avoid any risk, we will generate regular backups of all your MySQL databases, so if anything goes wrong following some update or if you remove some content by accident, we will be able to restore your database the way it was on any of the past 7 days.

InnoDB in VPS Servers

All VPS web hosting plans that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel come with InnoDB pre-installed, so you will be able to make use of any open-source script-based application that needs the database storage engine without having to activate anything manually. You can choose Hepsia on the VPS configuration page and your brand new Virtual Private Server will be up and running within the hour, so you can sign in and start creating your Internet sites right away. Once you set up a brand-new MySQL database and begin the app activation process, our system will set the engine for this MySQL database automatically. In this way, you can run different apps at the same time without configuring anything on the Virtual Private Server. You can create a WordPress-based personal journal that uses the default MySQL engine – MyISAM, and a Magento-powered online shopping portal that uses InnoDB, for instance.

InnoDB in Dedicated Servers

InnoDB is included by default with all dedicated web hosting plans that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. It’s an integral part of the standard software package that we install on all Hepsia-equipped servers, so as soon as your physical machine is ready, you’ll be able to sign in and to activate any type of script-powered app that needs this particular MySQL database engine. When you set up a new database via the hosting Control Panel, there won’t be any active engine until you start installing an app. Once the app activation wizard starts inserting information into the newly created database, the engine will be selected automatically on the basis of the prerequisites of the app in question, so you can use both MyISAM and InnoDB without having to select either one explicitly at any time. In this way, you can use a wide selection of applications for your sites.
