InnoDB is a MySQL storage engine, which has been gaining popularity in recent years, as it offers a significantly better overall performance and a faster crash recovery in comparison with the default engine that’s used by the MySQL relational database management system – MyISAM. InnoDB is preferred by lots of developers that write highly scalable web applications, as it works more efficiently with large volumes of data, while it keeps the server processing load at a minimum. Furthermore, it locks only a single database row if any information should be modified, whereas many other engines lock the entire database table and therefore need more time to perform multiple consecutive tasks. Last, but not least, InnoDB adheres to the "all-or-nothing" rule – in case the entire data modification procedure cannot be completed for whatever reason, the action is rolled back to avoid scrambling or data loss. Magento and the latest Joomla releases are two examples of widely used PHP script-powered web apps that have switched to InnoDB.

InnoDB in Cloud Website Hosting

InnoDB is available with all our Linux cloud website hosting packages by default, not upon request or as a paid upgrade, so you will be able to activate and manage any PHP script-driven application that requires the MySQL storage engine without any difficulties as soon as you activate your shared account. InnoDB will be pre-selected as the default engine for a given MySQL database during the app installation process, irrespective of whether you take advantage of our 1-click installation tool or create the MySQL database and install the application manually, provided that the app requires it instead of the more famous MyISAM engine. We will carry out daily database backups, so you can be sure that you’ll never lose any content in case you erase a database accidentally or you overwrite some essential info – you’ll just need to notify us and we’ll restore your data the way it was.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can run a script-driven software app that needs InnoDB with any of our semi-dedicated server plans, as all the accounts are created on our avant-garde cloud web hosting platform where the storage engine is installed. A new MySQL database can be created in two separate ways – manually from the Database Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, or automatically – when you take advantage of our single-click app installer tool. Either way, the required engine will be picked automatically as soon as the installation of the application starts, so you won’t have to update anything manually, no matter if the application needs InnoDB or the more regularly used MyISAM. On top of that, we will always be able to recover any of your databases if you unintentionally erase one, as we carry out several database backups every day, each of which is kept for seven days.

InnoDB in VPS Hosting

If you pick a virtual private server with our Hepsia Control Panel, the InnoDB database storage engine will be included in the standard software package that will be pre-installed on your VPS server before we hand it over to you. You will not have to configure anything manually and you will be able to install and use any open-source script-driven web application that needs InnoDB as soon as your Virtual Private Server is ready, which takes no more than 60 minutes after the order submission procedure itself. A number of engines are available, so whenever you set up a database via the Hepsia Control Panel, a specific engine will be activated when the app installation process begins and our system will detect which engine is required by the app in question. If you have to use MyISAM, for instance, you won’t need to do anything different from installing the desired application, whether manually or using our app installer tool.

InnoDB in Dedicated Web Hosting

InnoDB comes as standard with all Linux dedicated servers hosting packages that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. It is an integral part of the software package that will be installed on all Hepsia-managed servers, so as soon as your physical machine is ready, you will be able to sign in and to install a various open-source script-powered app that needs this MySQL database engine. When you create a new database through the Control Panel, there won’t be any active engine till you begin installing an app. Once the app setup wizard starts dumping information in the database, the engine will be set automatically on the basis of the prerequisites of the specific app, so you can use both MyISAM and InnoDB without the need to select either one of them specifically at any time. Therefore, you can make use of a wide selection of applications for your Internet sites.
