InnoDB is a storage engine for MySQL databases, which is used by popular PHP-driven apps such as Joomla 3.x and Magento. It is excellent for scalable apps, since it performs exceptionally well when handling huge volumes of data. Rather than locking the entire database table to enter new information into a database like many other engines do, InnoDB locks only one row, so it can handle much more tasks for the same period of time. Plus, InnoDB offers an improved crash recovery and supports database transactions and foreign keys – rules that indicate how data imports and updates should be treated. In case a given task hasn’t been fully completed for some reason, the action will be rolled back. Thus, the database content will stay safe and sound and will not be partially mixed with newly inserted content.

InnoDB in Cloud Hosting

Every script-powered software application that needs InnoDB will run flawlessly on our innovative cloud platform and the MySQL storage engine is available with all our cloud hosting packages. Every time you create a database manually or our app installer tool creates one automatically and an app installation process is initiated, the engine that the database in question will use will be selected based on the app’s specifications without having to update any setting in your web hosting account. InnoDB will be selected automatically for any app that requires this specific engine and you’ll be able to take advantage of its full capacity. We’ll store daily content backups, so in case you unintentionally erase a database that is important to you or you overwrite some part of it, we will be able to restore the database the way it was only a couple of hours earlier.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can activate a PHP-driven app that needs InnoDB with all of our semi-dedicated server plans, due to the fact that all the accounts are created on our avant-garde cloud platform where the database storage engine is installed. A new database can be set up in two ways – manually through the Database Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, or automatically – when you use our 1-click application installer tool. In either case, the required engine will be selected automatically once the activation of the application begins, so you will not have to edit anything manually, irrespective of whether the application requires InnoDB or the more regularly used MyISAM. Also, we’ll always be able to retrieve any of your MySQL databases if you accidentally remove one, as we generate several database backups every day, each of which is kept for 1 week.

InnoDB in VPS Web Hosting

If you pick a virtual private server with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, the InnoDB database storage engine will be included in the standard software pack that will be installed on your Virtual Private Server before we give it to you. You will not have to configure anything manually and you’ll be able to install and use any PHP script-based software application that needs InnoDB as soon as your Virtual Private Server is set up, which takes no more than one hour after the order submission process itself. A number of engines are offered, so anytime you create a database using the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, a specific engine will be picked once the app installation starts and our system will recognize which engine is required by the app in question. In case you have to use MyISAM, for instance, you will not have to do anything different than installing the desired app, whether manually or using our application installer.

InnoDB in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Our Hepsia Control Panel is one of the options that you can choose on the order page when you buy a dedicated server from us. As this is the most powerful type of website hosting, it is quite likely that you will manage very popular Internet sites that will draw a lot of people, and since InnoDB is one of the best options for such websites, we’ll activate it together with all the other software applications that come with a Hepsia-managed server. If you create a brand new database in your account, there won’t be any activated storage engine till you begin installing an open-source script, whether manually via your Internet browser or using the automatic script installation tool that is included in the hosting Control Panel. The necessary engine will be detected automatically and will be assigned to that database, so you can run scripts that need InnoDB, as well as ones that need the default MySQL engine – MyISAM, without the need to cope with any difficulty.
