InnoDB is a database engine for MySQL databases, which is used by popular PHP-driven web applications such as Magento and Joomla v3. It is excellent for scalable apps, since it performs exceptionally well when processing large data volumes. Rather than locking the entire database table to add new information to a database as many other engines do, InnoDB locks only one database row, so it can perform much more operations for the same period of time. Moreover, InnoDB offers a much faster crash recovery and supports transactions and foreign keys – rules that determine how data inserts and modifications should be treated. In case a particular task has not been fully completed for some reason, the action will be rolled back. Thus, the content in the database will be preserved safe and sound and will not be partially merged with new content.

InnoDB in Cloud Hosting

InnoDB is offered with all our Linux cloud packages by default, not upon request or as a paid upgrade, so you will be able to activate and manage any open-source script-driven software app which requires the InnoDB database engine without encountering any obstacle once you activate your shared web hosting account. InnoDB will be selected automatically as the default engine for a certain MySQL database during the app installation, regardless of whether you make use of our one-click installation tool or create the MySQL database and install the application manually, provided that the application requires it instead of the more popular MyISAM engine. We will make daily database backups, so you can be sure that you will never lose any content in case you delete a database by accident or you overwrite some important information – you will simply have to contact us and we will restore your database the way it was.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages support InnoDB and you will be able to take full advantage of all the features of this database storage engine with any script-powered web application that requires it. It’s one of the engines that we have on our cloud platform, so the one that will be picked depends on the prerequisites of the application in question. You won’t need to do anything manually in order to enable InnoDB, since it will be set as the default engine whenever you install an app – whether manually or using our one-click application installer tool. To avoid any risk, we will generate regular MySQL database backups, so if anything goes wrong following an upgrade or if you erase some data accidentally, we’ll be able to restore the database the way it was on any of the previous 7 days.

InnoDB in VPS

If our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel is selected during the signup process for your new Linux VPS packages , InnoDB will be installed on the Virtual Private Server together with other needed software, so you won’t have to do anything if you decide to manage script-based software apps that require this MySQL database storage engine. MyISAM, the default MySQL engine, will be installed too. You can create a brand-new MySQL database and begin installing the application manually or through our 1-click installer tool. The system will recognize the engine that the particular application requires and will set it for the specific MySQL database, so the installation process will proceed impeccably and the app can enter its data into that database. Therefore, you can activate apps with various requirements about the MySQL engine without the need to make any changes on your server.

InnoDB in Dedicated Hosting

Our Hepsia Control Panel is one of the options which you can pick on the order page when you buy a dedicated server from our company. Since this is the most powerful type of website hosting, it is very likely that you will manage popular Internet sites that will attract plenty of individuals, and since InnoDB is one of the very best options for such sites, we will activate it along with all the other software apps that are available with a Hepsia-managed dedicated server. When you set up a new MySQL database in your dedicated server account, there won’t be any activated MySQL storage engine till you start installing a script, whether manually through your Internet browser or using the automatic scripts installer tool that is included in the hosting Control Panel. The needed engine will be detected automatically and will be set for that database, so you can make use of scripts that need InnoDB, as well as ones that require the default MySQL engine, MyISAM, without needing to cope with any problem.
