InnoDB is a MySQL database engine, which has been gaining popularity in recent years, as it provides a better overall performance and an improved database crash recovery compared with the default engine that is used by MySQL – MyISAM. InnoDB is preferred by lots of programmers that build highly scalable software apps, due to the fact that it works more efficiently with immense volumes of data, while it keeps the server load low. What’s more, it locks only a single row in the database in case anything should be updated, whereas lots of other engines lock the entire database table and hence require much more time to process multiple consecutive tasks. Last, but not least, InnoDB obeys the "all-or-nothing" rule – in case the modification of the entire data cannot be completed for any reason, the operation is rolled back to prevent confusion or the loss of data. Magento and the newest Joomla releases are two instances of widely used PHP-based web applications that have switched to InnoDB.

InnoDB in Cloud Hosting

InnoDB is offered with all our Linux cloud hosting by default, not upon request or as a paid upgrade, so you will be able to install and run any PHP script-powered application which needs the InnoDB database engine without encountering any impediment as soon as you order your shared hosting account. InnoDB will be pre-selected as the default engine for a particular database during the app activation, regardless of whether you use our 1-click installer or create the database and set up the app manually, on the condition that the application requires it instead of the more famous MyISAM engine. We’ll store daily backups of all your databases, so you can be sure that you’ll never lose any data in case you erase a database by mistake or you overwrite some crucial information – you’ll simply have to inform us and we’ll restore everything back to normal.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you create a brand-new MySQL database from the hosting Control Panel included with each of our semi-dedicated server accounts and you start installing an open-source script-driven software app either manually or using our one-click application installer tool, the database storage engine will be set automatically depending on the prerequisites of the particular app. As InnoDB is available on the cloud hosting platform where your new semi-dedicated account will be set up, it will be set as the default engine for each application that requires it without the need for any manual intervention on your end at any moment. To avoid any chance of losing information if you update an app or if you erase a database unintentionally, we’ll carry out backups of all your databases each and every day, so if something goes wrong, we can rescue your data.

InnoDB in VPS Hosting

All Linux VPS hosting that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel come with InnoDB already activated, so you will be able to run any open-source script-powered web app that requires this MySQL database storage engine without setting up anything manually. You can choose Hepsia on the VPS order form and your brand new server will be up and running within 60 minutes, so you can sign in and start building your Internet sites straight away. Once you set up a brand-new MySQL database and start the app activation process, our system will choose the engine for this database automatically. In this way, you can manage various applications at the same time without having to change anything on the server. You can have a WordPress-based personal journal that makes use of MyISAM – the default MySQL engine, and a Magento-powered shopping portal that uses the InnoDB engine, for example.

InnoDB in Dedicated Web Hosting

Our Hepsia hosting Control Panel is among the features which you can choose on the order page when you buy a dedicated server from us. Since this is the most powerful kind of website hosting, it is quite likely that you’ll run highly popular websites that will draw many individuals, and since InnoDB is among the very best choices for such sites, we’ll install it together with all the other software applications that are offered with a Hepsia-managed server. If you set up a new MySQL database in your dedicated account, there won’t be any active database storage engine until you start installing an open-source script, whether manually via your web browser or using the automatic script installer that is included in the Control Panel. The required engine will be recognized and will be assigned to the database in question, so you can use scripts that need InnoDB, as well as ones that need MyISAM, the default MySQL engine, without any obstacle.
