InnoDB is a database storage engine for MySQL relational databases, which is used by popular PHP script-powered software applications like Joomla v3 and Magento. It’s ideal for scalable applications, as it performs incredibly well when processing enormous data volumes. Instead of locking the whole database table to enter new information into a database as many other engines do, InnoDB locks only one database row, so it can handle much more tasks for the same length of time. Besides, InnoDB offers a much faster crash recovery and supports database transactions and foreign keys – a set of rules that determine how data imports and updates should be handled. In case a specific operation hasn’t been thoroughly completed for some reason, the action will be rolled back. In this way, the information in the database will stay safe and sound and will not be partially mixed with newly entered content.

InnoDB in Hosting

InnoDB is available with all our Linux hosting by default, not upon request or as a paid upgrade, so you will be able to activate and manage any PHP script-based software application that requires the InnoDB storage engine without the need to deal with any complication once you activate your shared website hosting account. InnoDB will be pre-selected as the default engine for a certain database during the app installation, regardless of whether you make use of our 1-click installer or create the database and activate the app manually, as long as the app requires it instead of the more famous MyISAM engine. We’ll keep regular database backups, so you can be certain that you’ll never lose any content in case you delete a database accidentally or you overwrite some important information – you’ll just need to alert us and we’ll restore the database the way it was.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Servers

InnoDB is available with each of our semi-dedicated servers by default, so as soon as you buy a new semi-dedicated account, you can go ahead and install any PHP script-based software application that requires the storage engine. Several engines are installed on our cloud web hosting platform, so when you set up a brand new MySQL database and begin installing an app manually, or opt to take advantage of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel-integrated app installer, the engine for the database will be picked depending on the prerequisites of the particular application. This will allow you to activate and manage InnoDB-specific applications without any difficulties and without updating any settings in your account. To avoid any risk, we’ll always have a one-week-old backup of all your databases, so if you erase or edit any content accidentally, we can swiftly retrieve it.

InnoDB in VPS Servers

All VPS web hosting service that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel come with InnoDB pre-activated, so you will be able to use any open-source script-based app that needs this MySQL database storage engine without needing to configure anything manually. You can select Hepsia on the VPS order page and your new VPS server will be up and running within 1 hour, so you can sign in and begin setting up your Internet sites right away. Once you set up a brand-new database and begin the app installation process, our system will set the engine for that MySQL database automatically. Thus, you can make use of various applications simultaneously without the need to configure anything on the Virtual Private Server. You can create a WordPress-driven personal blog that makes use of the default MySQL engine – MyISAM, and a Magento-based online shop that makes use of InnoDB, for instance.

InnoDB in Dedicated Servers

InnoDB is available by default with all dedicated service ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It’s an essential part of the default software package that will be pre-installed on all Hepsia-managed dedicated servers, so once your physical machine is ready, you will be able to sign in and to activate any kind of script-based web application that needs this particular MySQL database storage engine. If you create a new database through the hosting Control Panel, there won’t be any active engine till you begin installing an app. Once the app installation wizard starts entering information into the database, the engine will be selected automatically based on the prerequisites of the respective application, so you can use both MyISAM and InnoDB without selecting either one specifically at any point. Thus, you can make use of an extensive selection of applications for your Internet sites.
