InnoDB is a popular storage engine for the MySQL RDBMS. It’s an alternative to the default MyISAM engine and it has lots of advantages that make it the engine of choice for plenty of script-driven web applications, including Joomla and Magento, which have switched over to InnoDB for good. For example, importing large amounts of data will be faster with InnoDB, because it locks only one database row to complete a particular task, not the entire database table, which makes the engine excellent for scalable apps. InnoDB also supports foreign keys and transactions – these refer to the manner in which the data is tackled. To put it simply, adding new or updating existent data will either be entirely completed, or will be annulled and the procedure will be rolled back in case a given problem occurs in the meantime, which is why the content that remains in the database won’t be damaged.

InnoDB in Cloud Hosting

Every PHP-powered application that requires InnoDB will run impeccably on our advanced cloud platform and the MySQL database storage engine is available with all our cloud hosting plans. Every time you create a database manually or our app installer creates one automatically and an app installation is initiated, the engine that the database in question will make use of will be selected in accordance with the app’s specifications without having to configure any setting in your shared account. InnoDB will be picked automatically for any app that requires this specific engine and you will be able to take advantage of its full capacity. We will carry out daily backups of your content, so in case you accidentally erase a database that you need or you overwrite a certain part of it, we’ll be able to restore the database the way it was just a few hours earlier.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can activate a PHP script-driven web app that needs InnoDB with all of our semi-dedicated server packages, due to the fact that all the accounts are set up on our advanced cloud platform where the MySQL storage engine is installed. A new MySQL database can be set up in two different ways – manually from the Database Manager section of the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, or automatically – if you take advantage of our single-click application installer. In either case, the needed engine will be selected automatically once the application’s installation starts, so you will not have to configure anything manually, irrespective of whether the application needs InnoDB or the more frequently used MyISAM. In addition, we will always be able to restore any of your MySQL databases if you erase one by accident, as we generate several backups every day, each of which is kept for one week.

InnoDB in VPS Hosting

All Linux VPS hosting packages that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel come with InnoDB pre-activated, so you’ll be able to run any PHP script-driven software app that needs this MySQL database engine without the need to set up anything manually. You can select Hepsia on the VPS order form and your brand new VPS server will be set up within the hour, so you can sign in and begin creating your Internet sites right away. Once you set up a new database and start the app activation process, our system will select the engine for this MySQL database automatically. In this way, you can make use of various apps simultaneously without having to change anything on the server. You can have a WordPress-based personal weblog that uses MyISAM – the default MySQL engine, and a Magento-driven e-store that uses InnoDB, for instance.

InnoDB in Dedicated Web Hosting

InnoDB is included by default with all Linux dedicated servers hosting packages that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It is part of the software package that we install on all Hepsia-equipped servers, so as soon as your physical machine is set up, you’ll be able to log in and to install a various PHP-powered web app that requires this particular database engine. If you create a new MySQL database via the hosting Control Panel, there won’t be any activated engine till you begin installing an application. Once the app setup wizard begins entering content into the newly created database, the engine will be selected automatically based on the requirements of the particular app, so you can use both MyISAM and InnoDB without the need to select either one of them specifically at any point. Thus, you can make use of a broad range of applications for your Internet sites.
