InnoDB is a very popular database storage engine for the MySQL DBMS. It is an alternative to the default MyISAM engine and it has plenty of upsides which have made it the preferred engine for lots of script-powered apps, including Magento and Joomla, which have switched to InnoDB for good. For instance, importing enormous volumes of data will be faster with InnoDB, because it locks only one row to complete an operation, not the entire table, which makes the engine excellent for scalable apps. It also supports foreign keys and transactions – these refer to the way in which the info is tackled. Simply put, adding new or updating existent data will either be fully completed, or will be aborted and the procedure will be rolled back in case any issue occurs in the meantime, so the content that remains in the database will not be damaged.

InnoDB in Website Hosting

Every script-driven app that needs InnoDB will function flawlessly on our leading-edge cloud platform and the MySQL storage engine is offered with all our website hosting plans. Each time you create a database manually or our app installer tool creates one automatically and an app installation is started, the engine that the database will use will be selected in accordance with the app’s requirements without the need to update any setting in your account. InnoDB will be chosen automatically for any app that requires this specific engine and you’ll be able to take advantage of its full potential. We will keep regular backups of your content, so in case you accidentally delete a MySQL database that you need or you overwrite some part of it, we’ll be able to restore your content the way it was just a few hours earlier.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can activate a script-based app that requires InnoDB with all of our semi-dedicated server packages, as all the accounts are created on our avant-garde cloud hosting platform where the database engine is installed. A new MySQL database can be set up in two ways – manually through the Database Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, or automatically – if you use our 1-click app installer tool. Either way, the needed engine will be chosen automatically the moment the app’s installation starts, so you won’t need to edit anything manually, irrespective of whether the app requires InnoDB or the more commonly used MyISAM. In addition, we’ll always be able to recover any of your MySQL databases in case you delete one by accident, as we generate several MySQL database backups every day, each of which is kept for 7 days.

InnoDB in VPS Servers

When you purchase a VPS server from us, you will be able to take full advantage of our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel to manage your content. A Hepsia-equipped Virtual Private Server will allow you to manage any PHP script-powered software application that requires InnoDB, as this particular database storage engine is included in the default software bundle that will be pre-installed on the Virtual Private Server during its configuration. When you create a brand new database through the Control Panel, you will simply need to begin installing an application – manually or using our app installer tool. InnoDB will be set as the default engine on the condition that the application in question requires it, so you will not have to do anything else in your account. Equivalently, if a certain app requires MyISAM, it will be automatically set as the default engine for this specific MySQL database.

InnoDB in Dedicated Servers

InnoDB is available as standard with all Linux dedicated web hosting plans that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It is an integral part of the default software bundle that we install on all Hepsia-equipped dedicated servers, so as soon as your physical machine is up and running, you will be able to log in and to install a various PHP-driven software application that needs this MySQL database storage engine. When you create a new database through the Control Panel, there won’t be any active engine until you start installing an application. Once the app setup wizard starts inserting information into the database, the engine will be picked automatically on the basis of the prerequisites of the application in question, so you can use both MyISAM and InnoDB without the need to select either one of them explicitly at any time. In this way, you can use a huge variety of apps for your Internet sites.
