InnoDB is a very popular database storage engine for the MySQL database management system. It’s an alternative to the default engine – MyISAM, and it has got a lot of strong sides which make it the engine of choice for a lot of PHP script-based applications, among them Joomla and Magento, which have moved to InnoDB for good. For example, importing enormous volumes of data will be much faster with InnoDB, because it locks only a single database row to complete a certain operation, not the entire table, which makes the engine perfect for scalable apps. InnoDB also supports foreign keys and transactions – these refer to the manner in which the data is tackled. Put simply, importing new or modifying existing data will either be entirely completed, or will be annulled and the procedure will be rolled back in case some problem shows up during the process, hence the content that remains in the database will not be damaged.

InnoDB in Website Hosting

Every open-source script-driven web app that needs InnoDB will run impeccably on our leading-edge cloud platform and the database storage engine is offered with all our website hosting packages. Each 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 in question will make use of will be selected on the basis of the app’s requirements without having to update any setting in your web hosting account. InnoDB will be picked automatically for any application that requires this particular engine and you’ll be able to take advantage of its full potential. We’ll carry out regular content backups, so if you unintentionally remove a MySQL database that you need or you overwrite a specific part of it, we’ll be able to restore your database the way it was just a couple of hours earlier.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can make use of a PHP-powered software application that requires 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 database can be set up in two separate ways – manually from the Database Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, or automatically – if you make use of our single-click application installer. In either case, the required engine will be selected automatically as soon as the activation of the application begins, so you will not have to change anything manually, irrespective of whether the application needs InnoDB or the more frequently used MyISAM. On top of that, we will always be able to retrieve any of your MySQL databases if you erase one by accident, as we create several MySQL database backups every day, each of which is stored for seven days.

InnoDB in Dedicated Servers

Our Hepsia Control Panel is among the features which you can choose on the order form when you purchase a dedicated server from us. Since this is the most powerful kind of web hosting, it’s pretty likely that you’ll manage popular websites that will attract many people, and since InnoDB is one of the best choices for such websites, we’ll enable it together with all the other software apps that are available with a Hepsia-managed dedicated server. When you set up a brand-new database in your account, there won’t be any activated database engine until you begin installing an open-source PHP script, whether manually through your browser or using the automatic script installation tool that is integrated into the hosting Control Panel. The necessary engine will be detected automatically and will be set for the database in question, so you can run scripts that need InnoDB, as well as ones that require the default MySQL engine – MyISAM, without the need to deal with any obstacle.
