InnoDB is a popular storage engine for the MySQL RDBMS. It is an alternative to the default MyISAM engine and it has got plenty of strong sides which have made it the engine of choice for lots of PHP script-driven software apps, including Magento and Joomla, which have switched over to InnoDB permanently. For example, adding enormous amounts of data will be faster with InnoDB, because it locks only a single database row to complete a task, not the entire database table, which makes the engine ideal for scalable apps. InnoDB also supports foreign keys and transactions – these refer to the manner in which the information is handled. Simply put, adding new or modifying existing data will either be thoroughly completed, or will be canceled and the operation will be rolled back if a given problem occurs during the process, therefore the content that remains in the database will not be damaged.

InnoDB in Web Hosting

Any script-based web application that needs InnoDB will run flawlessly on our innovative cloud platform and the database storage engine is available with all our web hosting plans. Every time you create a MySQL database manually or our app installer creates one automatically and an app installation process is started, the engine that the database in question will use will be selected on the basis of the app’s specifications without having to update any setting in your shared hosting account. InnoDB will be selected automatically for any application that requires this specific engine and you’ll be able to take advantage of its full potential. We’ll make regular content backups, so if you accidentally remove a MySQL database that is important to you or you overwrite a specific part of it, we will be able to restore your database the way it was just a couple of hours earlier.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Servers

InnoDB is included with each of our semi-dedicated hosting plans by default, so once you order a new account, you can go ahead and install any script-based app that needs this particular MySQL database storage engine. Several engines are installed on our cloud hosting platform, so when you set up a brand-new database and start installing an application manually, or decide to take advantage of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel-integrated application installer tool, the engine for the database will be picked in accordance with the prerequisites of the respective app. This will allow you to activate and manage InnoDB-specific apps without having any impediment and without needing to update any settings in your account. To avoid any risk, we will always keep a one-week-old backup of all your MySQL databases, so if you erase or change any content unintentionally, we can easily retrieve it.

InnoDB in Dedicated Servers

InnoDB is available by default with all dedicated web hosting plans ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. It is part of the standard software bundle that we install on all Hepsia-managed servers, so once your machine is up and running, you will be able to log in and to activate any kind of PHP script-based software app that needs this particular database engine. When you set up a new MySQL database through the Control Panel, there won’t be any active engine until you start installing an application. As soon as the app installation wizard begins importing information into the newly created database, the engine will be selected automatically in accordance with the prerequisites of the application in question, so you can run both MyISAM and InnoDB without having to select either of them explicitly at any moment. Therefore, you can use a broad range of apps for your Internet sites.
