InnoDB is a MySQL database storage engine, which has been gaining in popularity lately, because it provides a significantly better overall performance and a faster database crash recovery compared to the default engine used by the MySQL database management system – MyISAM. InnoDB is used by many web developers that build scalable apps, since it works better with immense volumes of data, while it keeps the server processing load at a minimum. What’s more, it locks only a single row in the database in case any information should be edited, whereas lots of other engines lock the entire table and hence need more time to accomplish multiple sequential tasks. Last, but not least, InnoDB complies with a set of "all-or-nothing" rules – in case the modification of the entire data cannot be completed for some reason, the operation is rolled back to prevent confusion or losing data. Magento and the newest versions of Joomla are two instances of widespread PHP script-based web applications which have switched over to InnoDB.

InnoDB in Cloud Website Hosting

Every PHP script-driven web app that needs InnoDB will function impeccably on our innovative cloud website hosting platform and the storage engine is available with all our cloud website hosting packages. Each time you create a database manually or our app installer creates one automatically and an app installation process is started, the engine that the database in question will use will be selected on the basis of the app’s prerequisites without having to configure any setting in your hosting account. InnoDB will be picked automatically for any application that requires this specific engine and you’ll be able to get the most out of its full potential. We will create regular backups of your content, so if you unintentionally delete a database that you need or you overwrite a specific part of it, we will be able to restore everything the way it was just a couple of hours ago.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you set up a brand-new MySQL database through the hosting Control Panel included with each of our semi-dedicated server accounts and you begin installing a PHP script-based application either manually or using our one-click app installer, the database storage engine will be set automatically based on the requirements of the given app. Since InnoDB is available on the cloud website hosting platform where your new semi-dedicated hosting account will be created, it will be set as the default engine for any app that needs it without any manual intervention needed on your end at any time. To prevent any chance of losing data if you update an application or if you erase a database by mistake, we’ll carry out a backup of all your MySQL databases each day, so if anything goes wrong, we can rescue your data.

InnoDB in VPS Hosting

If you pick a virtual private server with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, the InnoDB database engine will be an essential part of the default software pack that will be pre-installed on your server before we hand it over to you. You won’t have to activate anything manually and you’ll be able to install and manage any open-source script-powered software app that needs InnoDB when your VPS is set up, which takes no more than one hour after the order submission procedure itself. Several engines are offered, so every time you create a MySQL database via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, a specific engine will be selected when the app activation process begins and our system will automatically detect the engine that is required by the application in question. In case you have to use MyISAM, for example, you won’t have to do anything different than installing the preferred application, whether manually or using our application installer tool.

InnoDB in Dedicated Web Hosting

Our Hepsia hosting Control Panel is among the features that you can choose on the server order page when you buy a dedicated server from us. Since this is the most powerful kind of website hosting, it’s pretty likely that you will manage highly popular websites that will attract a lot of visitors, and since InnoDB is among the best choices for such sites, we will enable it along with all the other software apps that are offered with a Hepsia-equipped dedicated server. When you set up a brand-new MySQL database in your account, there won’t be any active database engine until you begin installing an open-source script, whether manually through your browser or using the automatic scripts installer that is available in the Control Panel. The needed engine will be detected automatically and will be set for that database, so you can use scripts that need InnoDB, as well as ones that require MyISAM – the default MySQL engine, without any complication.
