InnoDB is a storage engine for MySQL databases, which is used by famous open-source script-based apps like Joomla 3.x and Magento. It’s excellent for scalable applications, since it excels in managing immense amounts 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 database row, so it can execute much more operations for the same period of time. Also, InnoDB offers an improved crash recovery and supports transactions and foreign keys – a set of rules that indicate how data imports and modifications should be treated. In case a given task hasn’t been fully completed for any reason, the action will be rolled back. In this way, the database content will remain undamaged and won’t be partially mixed with newly added content.

InnoDB in Shared Hosting

InnoDB is available with all our shared hosting plans by default, not as a paid upgrade or upon request, so you can install and run any PHP-based software app which needs the database engine without any impediments as soon as you order your shared web hosting account. InnoDB will be selected automatically as the default engine for a specific MySQL database during the app activation, no matter if you make use of our 1-click installation tool or create the database and install the application manually, as long as the application requires InnoDB instead of the more famous MyISAM engine. We will generate regular database backups, so you can be sure that you will never lose any data if you erase a database accidentally or you overwrite some vital info – you just have to get in touch with us and we’ll restore your content the way it was.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can activate a PHP script-based app that requires InnoDB with any of our semi-dedicated server plans, due to the fact that all the accounts are set up on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform where the storage engine is installed. A new database can be created in two separate ways – manually from the Database Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, or automatically – if you use our 1-click app installer tool. Either way, the required engine will be picked automatically the moment the activation of the app begins, so you will not need to update anything manually, irrespective of whether the app requires InnoDB or the more commonly used MyISAM. On top of that, we will always be able to recover any of your MySQL databases if you delete one by mistake, as we create a few database backups every day, each of which is kept for 1 whole week.

InnoDB in VPS Servers

All VPS servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel come with InnoDB already installed, so you will be able to make use of any script-powered software app that requires the MySQL database storage engine without needing to set up anything manually. You can choose Hepsia on the VPS order page and your brand new VPS server will be set up within the hour, so you can log in and start creating your Internet sites right away. Once you create a brand new MySQL database and begin the app installation process, our system will set the engine for that MySQL database automatically. In this way, you can use various applications at the same time without configuring anything on the server. You can set up a WordPress-driven personal journal that uses the default MySQL engine – MyISAM, and a Magento-based e-shop that uses the InnoDB engine, for instance.

InnoDB in Dedicated Servers

InnoDB is included as standard with all dedicated web hosting plans ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It’s an integral part of the software package that we install on all Hepsia-equipped servers, so once your physical machine is ready, you’ll be able to log in and to activate any type of open-source script-based application that requires this database engine. If you create a new MySQL database via the Control Panel, there won’t be any active engine till you start installing an app. Once the app setup wizard begins importing information into the newly created database, the engine will be chosen automatically depending on the particular app’s prerequisites, so you can use both MyISAM and InnoDB without the need to select either of them explicitly at any moment. Therefore, you can make use of a vast range of apps for your Internet sites.
