InnoDB is a MySQL storage engine, which has been gaining in popularity lately, as it provides a much better overall performance and an improved database crash recovery in comparison to the default engine that is used by the MySQL RDBMS – MyISAM. InnoDB is used by a lot of programmers that run scalable web apps, since it works much more effectively with large data volumes, while it keeps the server load at a minimum. Furthermore, it locks only a single database row in case any information should be updated, while many other engines lock the entire database table and therefore require more time to fulfill several sequential tasks. Last, but not least, InnoDB abides by a set of "all-or-nothing" rules – if the entire data modification procedure cannot be completed successfully for any reason, the action is rolled back to prevent scrambling or losing data. Magento and the newest Joomla versions are two examples of widespread script-based software platforms that have shifted over to InnoDB.

InnoDB in Shared Website Hosting

You can run any script-powered software application that needs InnoDB in case you’ve got a shared website hosting with our company, as the MySQL database storage engine is present on our avant-garde cloud platform as standard. During the app activation – manual or automatic, InnoDB will be selected as the default engine and the setup process will continue impeccably if this engine is needed. You can install apps which need the MyISAM engine without the need to deal with any obstacle as well and, again, the engine will be selected automatically, so you won’t need to change any setting manually at any moment. In addition, we’ll also carry out daily backups of all the MySQL databases that you’ve got in your account, so in case you erase or overwrite something, we can quickly restore it the way it was on any of the past 7 days.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting support InnoDB and you will be able to make the most of all the features offered by this MySQL database engine with any PHP script-driven app that needs it. InnoDB is one of the engines that we have on our cloud website hosting platform, so the one that will be selected depends on the requirements of the application in question. You won’t have to do anything manually to enable InnoDB, because it will be set as the default engine whenever you install an application – whether manually or using our 1-click application installer tool. To be on the safe side, we’ll perform daily database backups, so if something goes wrong following some update or if you delete some data by accident, we’ll be able to get your database back to the way it was on any of the past 7 days.

InnoDB in VPS

All VPS packages that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel come with InnoDB pre-activated, so you’ll be able to make use of any open-source script-driven web application that needs this particular storage engine without installing anything manually. You can select Hepsia on the VPS order form and your brand-new server will be up and running within one hour, so you can log in and begin creating your sites right away. When you create a brand-new database and begin the app activation process, our system will set the engine for that MySQL database automatically. In this way, you can run different apps at the same time without updating anything on the server. You can have a WordPress-based online blog that makes use of the default MySQL engine – MyISAM, and a Magento web shop that makes use of InnoDB, for example.

InnoDB in Dedicated Hosting

Our Hepsia hosting Control Panel is among the features that you can select on the server configuration page when you purchase a dedicated server from our company. Since this is the most powerful kind of hosting, it’s quite likely that you’ll run highly popular Internet sites that will attract a lot of individuals, and since InnoDB is among the best choices for such websites, we will install it together with all the other software apps that come with a Hepsia-equipped server. When you create a brand-new MySQL database in your dedicated server account, there won’t be any activated MySQL database storage engine till you start installing an open-source script, whether manually via your browser or using the automatic script installer tool that is available in the Control Panel. The required engine will be detected automatically and will be set for that database, so you can install scripts that need InnoDB, as well as ones that require MyISAM – the default MySQL engine, without experiencing any difficulty.
