InnoDB is a database engine for MySQL relational databases, which is used by famous PHP-based web applications like Magento and Joomla 3. It’s excellent for scalable applications, as it performs really well when processing immense amounts of data. Rather than locking the whole database table to import new information into a database as many other engines do, InnoDB locks only one row, so it can complete a lot more operations for the same length of time. In addition, InnoDB offers a faster database crash recovery and supports database transactions and foreign key constraints – rules that determine how data inserts and modifications should be treated. In case a particular operation has not been thoroughly completed for whatever reason, the action will be rolled back. Thus, the content in the database will be kept undamaged and won’t be partially mixed with new content.

InnoDB in Website Hosting

While InnoDB is either a paid upgrade or it is not available at all with many other web hosting providers, it is an essential part of the standard set of features that we are offering with our website hosting packages. If you wish to use a script-powered app that needs InnoDB particularly, in order to be installed and to operate correctly, you will not experience any difficulties since the InnoDB storage engine is available on our in-house developed cloud web hosting platform. Regardless of whether you set up a new MySQL database and install an app manually or make use of our one-click app installer instrument, InnoDB will be selected automatically by our platform as the default engine if the respective application requires it instead of MyISAM. In addition to the remarkable crash recovery that InnoDB is offering, we also carry out regular backups of all databases, so that we can quickly recover any database in your shared account.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting

InnoDB is available with each of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages by default, so as soon as you create a new account, you can go on and activate any PHP script-powered software app that requires this particular MySQL storage engine. A few engines are installed on our cloud web hosting platform, so when you create a brand-new database and begin installing an application manually, or opt to take advantage of the Hepsia Control Panel-integrated application installer tool, the engine for the database will be chosen on the basis of the requirements of the particular app. This will allow you to install and run InnoDB-specific applications without the need to deal with any complication and without updating any settings in your semi-dedicated account. To avoid any risk, we’ll always have a one-week-old backup of all your MySQL databases, so if you delete or alter any content by mistake, we can easily retrieve it.

InnoDB in VPS Web Hosting

If you get a virtual private server with our Hepsia Control Panel, the InnoDB database engine will be an indivisible part of the default software package that will be pre-installed on your VPS server before we give it to you. You will not need to activate anything manually and you’ll be able to enable and use any script-powered software app that needs InnoDB when your VPS server is up and running, which takes no more than one hour after the order process itself. A few engines are available, so anytime you set up a MySQL database using the Hepsia Control Panel, a particular engine will be picked once the app activation commences and our system will recognize which engine is required by the app in question. If you need to use MyISAM, for example, you won’t need to do anything different than installing the application of your preference, whether manually or using our application installer tool.

InnoDB in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Our Hepsia Control Panel is among the options that you can select on the order page when you purchase a dedicated server from us. Since this is the most powerful kind of hosting, it’s very likely that you’ll run highly popular sites that will draw many people, and since InnoDB is among the very best options for such sites, we’ll activate it together with all the other software apps that are available with a Hepsia-managed server. When you create a new database in your dedicated account, there won’t be any active MySQL storage engine till you begin installing an open-source script, whether manually through your Internet browser or using the automatic script installation tool that is included in the hosting Control Panel. The required engine will be detected automatically and will be assigned to that database, so you can use scripts that require InnoDB, as well as ones that require the default MySQL engine, MyISAM, without needing to deal with any complication.
