InnoDB is a MySQL storage engine, which has been gaining in popularity lately, as it offers a significantly better overall performance and an improved crash recovery compared with the default engine used by the MySQL RDBMS – MyISAM. InnoDB is used by lots of developers that write highly scalable applications, since it works more effectively with large data volumes, while it keeps the server load low. Furthermore, it uses row-level locking in case any information should be edited, whereas lots of other engines lock the entire table and thus require more time to execute several successive tasks. Last, but not least, InnoDB abides by the "all-or-nothing" rule – in case the entire data modification process cannot be completed successfully for any reason, the action is rolled back to avoid confusion or data loss. Magento and the latest releases of Joomla are two examples of popular open-source script-powered applications which have moved to InnoDB.

InnoDB in Cloud Website Hosting

You can run any PHP script-driven software application that needs InnoDB if you’ve got a cloud website hosting package with us, as the database engine is available on our avant-garde cloud platform as standard. Throughout the app installation – manual or automatic, InnoDB will be selected as the default engine and the setup will continue flawlessly in case this engine is needed. You can run apps that require the MyISAM engine without any problems as well and, once again, the engine will be pre-selected, so you will not have to modify anything manually at any point. What’s more, we will also make daily backups of all the databases that you have in the shared hosting account, so in case you erase or overwrite anything, we can swiftly get it back to the way it was on any of the past 7 days.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our semi-dedicated hosting include InnoDB and you will be able to make use of all the features of this MySQL storage engine with any PHP script-driven application that requires it. It is one of the engines that we have on our cloud website hosting 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 activate InnoDB, because it will be set as the default engine when you install an application – whether manually or using our 1-click application installer. To avoid any risk, we’ll create daily MySQL database backups, so if something goes wrong following some update or if you delete some content unintentionally, we’ll be able to get your database back to the way it was on any of the past 7 days.

InnoDB in VPS

If you get a virtual private server from our company, you will be able to use our custom Hepsia Control Panel to manage your web content. A Hepsia-equipped Virtual Private Server will permit you to install any open-source script-powered app that requires InnoDB, as this MySQL database engine is an essential part of the standard software package that will be pre-installed on your Virtual Private Server during its setup. When you create a brand-new database via the Control Panel, you will simply need to begin installing an app – manually or using our application installer tool. InnoDB will be set as the default engine on the condition that the application in question needs it, so you will not have to do anything else in your VPS account. Correspondingly, if an app needs MyISAM, it will be automatically set as the default engine for this specific database.

InnoDB in Dedicated Hosting

Our Hepsia Control Panel is among the options which you can pick on the order form when you buy a dedicated server from us. Since this is the most powerful type of web hosting, it’s rather likely that you’ll run highly popular websites that will attract plenty of individuals, and since InnoDB is among the very best options for such Internet sites, we’ll enable it along with all the other software applications that are available with a Hepsia-managed dedicated server. If you create a brand new MySQL database in your dedicated server account, there won’t be any activated MySQL database engine until you start installing an open-source script, whether manually through your browser or using the automatic script installer tool that is included in the Control Panel. The needed engine will be detected and will be set for that database, so you can make use of scripts that require InnoDB, as well as ones that need MyISAM – the default MySQL engine, without any obstacles.
