InnoDB is a MySQL database storage engine, which has been gaining in popularity lately, as it offers a significantly better overall performance and a faster crash recovery compared to the default engine used by the MySQL relational database management system – MyISAM. InnoDB is endorsed by a lot of web developers that write highly scalable software apps, because it works better with large amounts of data, while it keeps the server processing load at a minimum. What’s more, it locks only one database row if anything should be edited, while lots of other engines lock the entire table and therefore need more time to perform multiple successive tasks. Last, but not least, InnoDB observes the "all-or-nothing" rule – in case the entire data modification cannot be completed for whatever reason, the operation is rolled back to avoid confusion or data loss. Magento and the newest Joomla releases are two examples of famous PHP script-based web applications that have switched to InnoDB.

InnoDB in Cloud Hosting

Any PHP script-powered software app that needs InnoDB will function flawlessly on our avant-garde cloud web hosting platform and the database storage engine is available with all our cloud 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 will use will be selected based on the app’s specifications without the need to configure any setting in your web hosting account. InnoDB will be selected automatically for any app that requires this specific engine and you’ll be able to make the most of its full potential. We will make regular content backups, so in case you accidentally erase a database that’s important to you or you overwrite a certain part of it, we’ll be able to restore the database the way it was just a few hours earlier.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can run a PHP script-based software app that needs InnoDB with all of our semi-dedicated server packages, since all the accounts are set up on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform where the MySQL storage engine is installed. A new database can be set up in two different ways – manually through the Database Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, or automatically – when you make use of our 1-click app installer. Either way, the needed engine will be chosen automatically once the app’s activation begins, so you won’t need to update anything manually, irrespective of whether the application requires InnoDB or the more frequently used MyISAM. On top of that, we will always be able to restore any of your MySQL databases in case you delete one by accident, as we create a few backups every day, each of which is stored for 7 days.

InnoDB in VPS Hosting

If you pick a virtual private server with our Hepsia Control Panel, the InnoDB storage engine will be an indivisible part of the standard software package that will be installed on your server before we hand it over to you. You won’t need to activate anything manually and you will be able to install and run any PHP-driven application that needs InnoDB as soon as your Virtual Private Server is up and running, which takes no more than one hour after the order submission itself. A couple of engines are available, so anytime you create a database through the Hepsia Control Panel, a particular engine will be picked once the app activation process commences and our system will automatically detect which engine is required by the app in question. In case you have to use MyISAM, for instance, you won’t have to do anything different from installing the preferred application, whether manually or using our app installer tool.

InnoDB in Dedicated Web Hosting

Our Hepsia hosting Control Panel is among the options that you can select on the server configuration page when you purchase a dedicated server from us. As this is the most powerful type of website hosting, it’s rather likely that you’ll manage very popular sites that will draw a lot of visitors, and since InnoDB is among the very best options for such sites, we will install it along with all the other software apps that are offered with a Hepsia-equipped server. When you create a brand new MySQL database in your account, there won’t be any activated MySQL database engine till you begin installing an open-source script, whether manually through your web browser or using the automatic scripts installer tool that is available in the Control Panel. The needed engine will be detected automatically and will be set for the database in question, so you can use scripts that require InnoDB, as well as ones that require the default MySQL engine – MyISAM, without having any problem.
