InnoDB is a database engine for MySQL databases, which is used by widely used script-driven apps like Magento and Joomla v3. It’s ideal for scalable apps, since it works really well when managing enormous data volumes. Instead of locking the whole table to add new information to a database like many other engines do, InnoDB locks only one row, so it can carry out a lot more tasks for the same length of time. Moreover, InnoDB offers a better crash recovery and supports transactions and foreign key constraints – a set of rules that specify how data imports and updates should be handled. In case a particular operation hasn’t been fully completed for whatever reason, the action will be rolled back. In this way, the information in the database will be preserved undamaged and won’t be partially merged with newly entered content.

InnoDB in Hosting

InnoDB is available with all our Linux hosting by default, not as a paid upgrade or upon request, so you will be able to activate and manage any PHP-powered software app that requires the MySQL database storage engine without any problems once you activate your shared web hosting account. InnoDB will be selected automatically as the default engine for a certain MySQL database during the app activation, regardless of whether you use our single-click installer or create the MySQL database and install the app manually, provided that the application requires InnoDB instead of the more popular MyISAM engine. We’ll generate regular backups of all your MySQL databases, so you can rest assured that you’ll never lose any data if you erase a database by accident or you overwrite some important information – you will just need to get in touch with us and we will restore your database the way it was.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our semi-dedicated packages support InnoDB and you can take full advantage of all the features offered by this database storage engine with any open-source script-powered web app that requires it. InnoDB is among the engines that are available on our cloud hosting platform, so the one that will be selected depends on the particular app’s requirements. You will not have to do anything manually in order to activate InnoDB, because it will be set as the default engine whenever you install an application – whether manually or using our single-click app installer tool. To avoid any risk, we’ll generate daily database backups, so if anything goes wrong after some update or if you erase some data by accident, we’ll be able to get your database back to the way it was on any of the past 7 days.

InnoDB in VPS Hosting

All Linux VPS hosting that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel come with InnoDB pre-installed, so you’ll be able to take advantage of any PHP script-powered app that needs the storage engine without the need to set up anything manually. You can choose Hepsia on the VPS configuration page and your brand-new VPS server will be up and running within one hour, so you can log in and begin setting up your sites straight away. When 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 install various apps at the same time without having to update anything on the server. You can create a WordPress-based personal weblog that makes use of the default MySQL engine – MyISAM, and a Magento-based e-commerce site that makes use of InnoDB, for instance.

InnoDB in Dedicated Web Hosting

InnoDB comes as standard with all dedicated servers hosting packages ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It’s an integral part of the default software bundle that we install on all Hepsia-managed dedicated servers, so once your physical machine is assembled, you will be able to sign in and to install any kind of open-source script-based application that requires this particular storage engine. If you create a new database via the Control Panel, there won’t be any activated engine till you start installing an app. Once the app setup wizard begins importing information into the newly created database, the engine will be selected automatically in accordance with the specific app’s requirements, so you can run both InnoDB and MyISAM without selecting either of them specifically at any time. In this way, you can make use of a vast variety of applications for your sites.
