InnoDB is a very popular storage engine for the MySQL relational database management system. It is an alternative to the default engine – MyISAM, and it has a lot of pluses that have made it the engine of choice for numerous open-source script-powered apps, such as Joomla™ and Magento, which have shifted over to InnoDB for good. For example, importing huge amounts of data will be faster with InnoDB, as it locks only a single database row to perform a specific task, not the entire table, which makes the engine excellent for scalable apps. It also supports foreign keys and database transactions – these refer to the manner in which the data is handled. To put it simply, appending new or updating existent data will either be entirely completed, or will be annulled and the operation will be rolled back in case some issue occurs during the process, therefore the content that remains in the database won’t be lost.
InnoDB in Cloud Hosting
Every PHP-driven software app that requires InnoDB will function flawlessly on our avant-garde cloud platform and the storage engine is available with all our cloud hosting
packages. Whenever you create a database manually or our app installer creates one automatically and an app installation process is initiated, the engine that the database will make use of will be selected on the basis of the app’s prerequisites without having to change any setting in your hosting account. InnoDB will be selected automatically for any app that requires this specific engine and you will be able to get the most out of its full potential. We will make regular backups of your content, so in case you accidentally delete 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 only several hours ago.
InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting
InnoDB is included with each of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages
by default, so once you create a new account, you can move on and install any PHP-powered software app that needs the database storage engine. Several engines are installed on our cloud website hosting platform, so when you create a brand new database and begin installing an application manually, or decide to use the Hepsia hosting Control Panel-integrated app installer, the engine for the database will be picked depending on the requirements of the application in question. This will allow you to install and manage InnoDB-specific applications without experiencing any difficulty and without the need to update any settings in your account. To take no chances, we’ll always have a one-week-old backup of all your MySQL databases, so if you remove or edit any content by mistake, we can easily recover it.
InnoDB in VPS
All Linux VPS packages
that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel come with InnoDB pre-installed, so you will be able to take advantage of any PHP script-based application that needs this database engine without configuring anything manually. You can choose Hepsia on the VPS configuration page and your brand new server will be set up within 1 hour, so you can sign in and begin creating your Internet sites right away. Once you set up a new database and begin the app installation process, our system will select the engine for that MySQL database automatically. Thus, you can install various applications simultaneously without modifying anything on the server. You can create a WordPress personal journal that makes use of the default MySQL engine – MyISAM, and a Magento-driven web shop that makes use of the InnoDB engine, for example.
InnoDB in Dedicated Hosting
InnoDB is included as standard with all dedicated servers hosting packages
that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It’s an integral part of the software bundle that will be installed on all Hepsia-managed dedicated servers, so as soon as your machine is ready, you will be able to sign in and to activate any type of PHP script-driven app that requires this MySQL storage engine. If you create a new database through the hosting Control Panel, there won’t be any active engine until you begin installing an application. As soon as the app activation wizard starts importing data into the database, the engine will be set automatically depending on the prerequisites of the particular application, so you can use both InnoDB and MyISAM without having to select either one specifically at any point. In this way, you can make use of a large range of apps for your websites.
