InnoDB is a MySQL storage engine, which has been gaining popularity lately, as it offers a much better overall performance and a faster database failure recovery in comparison with the default engine that is used by the MySQL database management system – MyISAM. InnoDB is endorsed by lots of devs that write highly scalable web applications, because it works much better with enormous data volumes, while it keeps the server load low. What’s more, it it locks only one row in the database if any information should be updated, while lots of other engines lock the entire database table and therefore require more time to carry out multiple sequential tasks. Last, but not least, InnoDB adheres to a set of "all-or-nothing" rules – in case the entire data modification procedure cannot be completed for any reason, the operation is rolled back to avoid confusion or losing data. Magento and the newest editions of Joomla are two examples of widespread script-driven software applications that have switched to InnoDB.

InnoDB in Cloud Hosting

Any PHP script-driven software application that requires InnoDB will run flawlessly on our leading-edge cloud platform and the database storage engine is offered with all our cloud hosting plans. Each time you create a MySQL database manually or our app installer creates one automatically and an app installation process is started, the engine that the database in question will make use of will be selected in accordance with the app’s prerequisites without having 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 get the most out of its full potential. We will keep regular backups of your content, so if you unintentionally delete a database that is important to you or you overwrite a specific part of it, we will be able to restore your content the way it was only a couple of hours ago.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting

InnoDB is available with each of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting by default, so the moment you buy a new semi-dedicated account, you can go ahead and install any script-powered web app that requires this storage engine. A couple of engines are pre-installed on our cloud website hosting platform, so when you create a brand new database and start installing an app manually, or opt to take advantage of the Hepsia Control Panel-integrated app installer tool, the engine for the database will be set based on the particular app’s requirements. This will permit you to activate and run InnoDB-specific apps without having to cope with any obstacle and without needing to change any settings in your account. To take no chances, we’ll always keep a 7-day-old backup of all your databases, so if you erase or edit any content by mistake, we can quickly recover it.

InnoDB in VPS Hosting

If you choose a virtual private server with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, the InnoDB storage engine will be an indivisible part of the standard software package that will be installed on your server before we give it to you. You will not need to activate anything manually and you’ll be able to install and manage any PHP script-driven software app that requires InnoDB once your Virtual Private Server is set up, which takes no more than 1 hour after the order process itself. A couple of engines are available, so anytime you create a MySQL database through the Hepsia Control Panel, a specific engine will be picked once the app installation starts and our system will detect which engine is required by the application in question. In case you have to use MyISAM, for instance, you will not need to do anything different from installing the chosen application, whether manually or using our app installer.

InnoDB in Dedicated Web Hosting

InnoDB is available by default with all Linux dedicated web hosting ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It is included in the default software bundle that we install on all Hepsia-managed dedicated servers, so once your machine is assembled, you’ll be able to log in and to install a various script-based software application that requires this particular storage engine. If you set up a new database via the Control Panel, there won’t be any active engine until you start installing an app. Once the app configuration wizard begins inserting information into the database, the engine will be set automatically depending on the prerequisites of the respective app, so you can run both InnoDB and MyISAM without having to select either one of them specifically at any time. Therefore, you can make use of a vast variety of apps for your sites.
