InnoDB is a MySQL database engine, which has been gaining popularity in recent years, because it provides a significantly better overall performance and a faster database crash recovery in comparison with the default engine that’s used by the MySQL DBMS – MyISAM. InnoDB is preferred by lots of web developers that run scalable software apps, because it works much more effectively with immense amounts of data, while it keeps the server load at a minimum. Also, it it locks only one row in the database in case anything should be edited, whereas many other engines lock the entire database table and thus require much more time to fulfill several consecutive tasks. Last, but not least, InnoDB complies with a set of "all-or-nothing" rules – if the entire data modification process cannot be completed for whatever reason, the action is rolled back to prevent confusion or data loss. Magento and the latest Joomla releases are two examples of popular PHP-driven web applications which have switched over to InnoDB.

InnoDB in Cloud Website Hosting

You can install any PHP script-driven software application that needs InnoDB if you’ve got a Linux cloud website hosting with us, as the MySQL database storage engine is available on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform by default. Throughout the app activation – manual or automatic, InnoDB will be selected as the default engine and the setup will proceed flawlessly in case this engine is needed. You can activate apps that require the MyISAM engine without having any difficulty as well and, again, the engine will be selected automatically, so you will not need to change any setting manually at any point. On top of that, we will also carry out regular backups of all the databases that you’ve got in the account, so in case you delete or overwrite anything, we can easily restore it the way it was on any of the past seven days.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can install an open-source script-based software app that needs InnoDB with all of our semi-dedicated server plans, as all the accounts are created on our leading-edge cloud platform where the storage engine is installed. A new MySQL database can be created in two different ways – manually through the Database Manager section of the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, or automatically – when you take advantage of our single-click app installer. Either way, the needed engine will be selected automatically as soon as the app’s installation starts, so you will not need to configure anything manually, regardless of whether the app requires InnoDB or the more frequently used MyISAM. Also, we’ll always be able to restore any of your databases in case you remove one by mistake, as we make a few database backups every day, each of which is stored for one whole week.

InnoDB in VPS Web Hosting

All Linux VPS web hosting that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel come with InnoDB pre-installed, so you will be able to take advantage of any script-powered web application that needs this database storage engine without having to install anything manually. You can pick Hepsia on the VPS order form and your brand new VPS server will be ready within 60 minutes, so you can log in and begin creating your web sites straight away. Once you create a new database and start the app installation process, our system will choose the engine for this MySQL database automatically. In this way, you can manage various applications at the same time without updating anything on the server. You can set up a WordPress-based personal weblog that uses MyISAM – the default MySQL engine, and a Magento e-shop that uses the InnoDB engine, for example.

InnoDB in Dedicated Servers Hosting

InnoDB comes as standard with all Linux dedicated servers hosting that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. It is an essential part of the standard software bundle that will be installed on all Hepsia-managed dedicated servers, so once your physical machine is assembled, you’ll be able to sign in and to activate any type of open-source script-based app that requires this particular MySQL database storage engine. If you create a new database via the Control Panel, there won’t be any active engine till you start installing an app. As soon as the app configuration wizard starts dumping content in the database, the engine will be selected automatically based on the requirements of the respective app, so you can use both MyISAM and InnoDB without selecting either one explicitly at any point. Thus, you can make use of a wide range of applications for your sites.
