InnoDB is a MySQL storage engine, which has been gaining popularity in recent years, because it provides a significantly better overall performance and an improved database crash recovery in comparison to the default engine that’s used by the MySQL RDBMS – MyISAM. InnoDB is preferred by lots of web developers that run highly scalable web applications, as it works better with large volumes of data, while it keeps the server load low. Furthermore, it locks only one database row if any info should be modified, whereas many other engines lock the entire table and thus need much more time to fulfill multiple consecutive tasks. Last, but not least, InnoDB follows a set of "all-or-nothing" rules – in case the entire data modification cannot be completed for whatever reason, the action is rolled back to prevent scrambling or data loss. Magento and the latest Joomla releases are two examples of popular script-based apps which have moved to InnoDB.

InnoDB in Cloud Hosting

Any open-source script-powered app that requires InnoDB will function impeccably on our advanced cloud platform and the MySQL database storage engine comes with all our cloud hosting plans. Every time you create a MySQL database manually or our app installer tool creates one automatically and an app installation is initiated, the engine that the database will make use of will be selected in accordance with the app’s specifications without having to configure any setting in your shared account. InnoDB will be picked automatically for any app that requires this particular engine and you’ll be able to take advantage of its full capacity. We’ll generate regular backups of your content, so if you accidentally remove a MySQL database that’s important to you or you overwrite some part of it, we will be able to restore everything the way it was just several hours earlier.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Servers

InnoDB is available with all our semi-dedicated hosting plans by default, so as soon as you create a new account, you can move on and install any PHP script-powered software app that needs the MySQL storage engine. A number of engines are installed on our cloud website hosting platform, so when you create a new MySQL database and begin installing an application manually, or decide to use the Hepsia hosting Control Panel-integrated application installer, the engine for the database will be selected depending on the prerequisites of the respective app. This will permit you to install and manage InnoDB-specific applications without any obstacle and without having to modify any settings in your semi-dedicated account. To take no chances, we’ll always keep a 7-day-old backup of all your MySQL databases, so if you delete or alter any content by mistake, we can easily rescue it.

InnoDB in VPS Servers

All VPS web hosting plans that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel come with InnoDB pre-installed, so you will be able to use any PHP-powered application that requires this database storage engine without the need to configure anything manually. You can pick Hepsia on the VPS configuration page and your brand-new Virtual Private Server will be set up within the hour, so you can sign in and start building your Internet sites straight away. Once you create a new database and start the app installation process, our system will set the engine for this database automatically. In this way, you can run different applications simultaneously without updating anything on the Virtual Private Server. You can have a WordPress-driven blog that uses MyISAM – the default MySQL engine, and a Magento-driven shopping portal that makes use of InnoDB, for example.

InnoDB in Dedicated Servers

Our Hepsia hosting Control Panel is one of the options that you can select on the server order page when you buy a dedicated server from us. As this is the most powerful type of hosting, it is rather likely that you will manage highly popular websites that will attract a lot of visitors, and since InnoDB is one of the best options for such websites, we will activate it together with all the other software applications that come with a Hepsia-managed server. When you set up a brand-new database in your account, there won’t be any activated database storage engine until you begin installing an open-source PHP script, whether manually through your Internet browser or using the automatic script installer that is included in the Control Panel. The needed engine will be detected and will be set for the database in question, so you can install scripts that need InnoDB, as well as ones that need MyISAM – the default MySQL engine, without encountering any complication.
