InnoDB is a storage engine for MySQL relational databases, which is used by famous open-source script-powered software apps such as Joomla 3 and Magento. It is ideal for scalable applications, because it performs stunningly well when handling immense amounts of data. Rather than locking the whole database table to enter new information into a database like many other engines do, InnoDB locks only one row, so it can carry out much more operations for the same length of time. Furthermore, InnoDB offers a much faster database failure recovery and supports transactions and foreign key constraints – a set of rules that define how data imports and modifications should be handled. If a given operation has not been fully completed for whatever reason, the action will be rolled back. In this way, the database content will be retained safe and sound and will not be partially merged with newly inserted content.

InnoDB in Cloud Website Hosting

InnoDB is available with all our cloud website hosting by default, not as a paid upgrade or upon request, so you will be able to install and run any open-source script-based web app which needs the InnoDB database engine without the need to deal with any difficulty once you order your shared account. InnoDB will be selected automatically as the default engine for a specific MySQL database during the app activation, irrespective of whether you take advantage of our one-click installation tool or create the MySQL database and set up the application manually, on the condition that the app requires InnoDB instead of the more famous MyISAM engine. We’ll store daily database backups, so you can be certain that you won’t ever lose any data in case you delete a database by mistake or you overwrite some important information – you will just need to contact us and we will restore your data back to normal.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can activate an open-source script-driven software application that needs InnoDB with all of our semi-dedicated server plans, due to the fact that all the accounts are created on our advanced cloud web hosting platform where the MySQL database engine is installed. A new database can be created in two different ways – manually from the Database Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, or automatically – if you use our single-click application installer. Either way, the needed engine will be selected automatically the moment the installation of the application begins, so you will not need to modify anything manually, irrespective of whether the application needs InnoDB or the more widely used MyISAM. Furthermore, we will always be able to retrieve any of your databases in case you remove one by accident, as we make several database backups every day, each of which is stored for 7 days.

InnoDB in VPS

All VPS services that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel come with InnoDB already installed, so you’ll be able to make use of any script-based app that requires this MySQL storage engine without configuring anything manually. You can select Hepsia on the VPS order page and your brand-new server will be up and running within 1 hour, so you can log in and start building your websites right away. Once you create a brand-new MySQL database and begin the app installation process, our system will choose the engine for that database automatically. In this way, you can manage different applications simultaneously without editing anything on the Virtual Private Server. You can set up a WordPress-powered personal blog that uses the default MySQL engine – MyISAM, and a Magento web store that uses InnoDB, for example.

InnoDB in Dedicated Hosting

Our Hepsia Control Panel is one of the options that you can pick on the server order page when you purchase a dedicated server from our company. As this is the most powerful type of website hosting, it’s quite likely that you’ll run highly popular websites that will attract plenty of individuals, and since InnoDB is among the very best options for such websites, we will install it along with all the other software apps that come with a Hepsia-managed server. If you set up a brand new MySQL database in your dedicated server account, there won’t be any active MySQL database engine until you start installing an open-source script, whether manually through your web browser or using the automatic scripts installation tool that is available in the Control Panel. The necessary engine will be recognized and will be assigned to that database, so you can activate scripts that need InnoDB, as well as ones that require MyISAM, the default MySQL engine, without running into any difficulty.
