InnoDB is a storage engine for MySQL relational databases, which is used by widely used PHP-powered applications such as Joomla v3 and Magento. It’s excellent for scalable applications, because it works really well when processing large volumes of data. Instead of locking the whole database table to add new information to a database as many other engines do, InnoDB locks only one row, so it can execute much more tasks for the same length of time. Additionally, InnoDB offers a faster crash recovery and supports transactions and foreign keys – a set of rules that specify how data inserts and updates should be treated. In case a given operation hasn’t been thoroughly completed for some reason, the action will be rolled back. Thus, the content in the database will be preserved safe and sound and won’t be partially mixed with newly inserted content.

InnoDB in Shared Hosting

InnoDB is available with all our Linux shared hosting by default, not as a paid upgrade or upon request, so you will be able to install and run any script-based software app which needs the InnoDB storage engine without having to deal with any difficulty once you open your shared web hosting account. InnoDB will be selected automatically as the default engine for a given database during the app installation process, regardless of whether you use our one-click installer or create the database and install the app manually, as long as the app requires InnoDB instead of the more famous MyISAM engine. We’ll generate regular backups of all your MySQL databases, so you can rest assured that you will never lose any content in case you erase a database accidentally or you overwrite some key information – you simply need to get in touch with us and we will restore the database back to normal.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our semi-dedicated hosting come with InnoDB and you can get the most out of all the features offered by this storage engine with any PHP script-driven software app that requires it. It’s among the engines that we have on our cloud website hosting platform, so the one that will be used depends on the requirements of the particular app. You won’t need to do anything manually to enable InnoDB, since it will be set as the default engine when you install an application – whether manually or using our one-click application installer tool. To avoid any risk, we will carry out regular backups of all your MySQL databases, so if anything goes wrong after some update or if you delete some data accidentally, we’ll be able to restore your database the way it was on any of the past seven days.

InnoDB in VPS Hosting

If you pick a virtual private server with our Hepsia Control Panel, the InnoDB database storage engine will be an integral part of the default software pack that will be installed on your Virtual Private Server before we hand it over to you. You won’t need to configure anything manually and you will be able to enable and run any script-powered app that requires InnoDB as soon as your VPS server is up and running, which takes no more than one hour after the order procedure itself. Several engines are available, so every time you create a MySQL database through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, a specific engine will be selected once the app activation begins and our system will automatically detect which engine is required by the app in question. In case you need MyISAM, for instance, you won’t have to do anything different from installing the preferred application, whether manually or using our app installer tool.

InnoDB in Dedicated Web Hosting

Our Hepsia hosting Control Panel is among the features that you can pick on the server order page when you buy a dedicated server from our company. As this is the most powerful kind of website hosting, it is pretty likely that you’ll run highly popular Internet sites that will draw plenty of people, and since InnoDB is among the very best options for such websites, we’ll install it along with all the other software applications that are offered with a Hepsia-equipped server. When you create a new database in your dedicated account, there won’t be any active MySQL database engine till you begin installing an open-source script, whether manually via your web browser or using the automatic script installer that is available in the Control Panel. The required engine will be detected and will be assigned to that database, so you can make use of scripts that require InnoDB, as well as ones that need the default MySQL engine, MyISAM, without needing to cope with any problem.
