InnoDB is a MySQL database engine, which has been gaining popularity in recent years, as it offers a significantly better overall performance and a faster database failure recovery in comparison with the default engine that’s used by the MySQL RDBMS – MyISAM. InnoDB is endorsed by lots of programmers that build highly scalable applications, since it works better with enormous volumes of data, while it keeps the server processing load low. What’s more, it locks only one database row in case anything should be updated, whereas many other engines lock the entire database table and therefore require more time to perform multiple successive tasks. Last, but not least, InnoDB observes a set of "all-or-nothing" rules – if the entire data modification process cannot be completed successfully for some reason, the operation is rolled back to prevent scrambling or losing data. Magento and the latest Joomla editions are two instances of widely used open-source script-driven software platforms that have shifted over to InnoDB.

InnoDB in Website Hosting

Every script-driven software application that requires InnoDB will function flawlessly on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform and the database storage engine is available with all our website hosting packages. Whenever you create a MySQL database manually or our app installer creates one automatically and an app installation is initiated, the engine that the database will use will be selected in accordance with the app’s requirements without the need to change any setting in your account. InnoDB will be chosen automatically for any app that requires this specific engine and you will be able to take advantage of its full capacity. We will make regular backups of your content, so in case you accidentally remove a MySQL database that is important to you or you overwrite certain parts of it, we will be able to restore your database the way it was only several hours ago.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can make use of a PHP script-driven web app that requires InnoDB with any of our semi-dedicated server plans, because all the accounts are created on our advanced cloud hosting platform where the database engine is installed. A new MySQL database can be created in two different ways – manually through the Database Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, or automatically – in case you use our one-click app installer tool. Either way, the required engine will be chosen automatically the moment the installation of the app starts, so you will not have to update anything manually, regardless of whether the application requires InnoDB or the more commonly used MyISAM. Furthermore, we will always be able to restore any of your MySQL databases in case you accidentally delete one, as we carry out several backups every day, each of which is preserved for one week.

InnoDB in VPS Web Hosting

If you pick a virtual private server with our Hepsia Control Panel, the InnoDB storage engine will be an essential part of the default software pack that will be installed on your Virtual Private Server before we give it to you. You won’t have to activate anything manually and you’ll be able to install and manage any open-source script-based web application that needs InnoDB when your VPS server is up and running, which takes no more than 1 hour after the order submission process itself. A number of engines are offered, so every time you set up a database through the Hepsia Control Panel, a particular engine will be activated when the app installation begins and our system will automatically detect the engine that is required by the application in question. In case you need MyISAM, for example, you will not have to do anything different from installing the desired application, whether manually or using our app installer.

InnoDB in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Our Hepsia Control Panel is one of the features that you can pick on the order page when you purchase a dedicated server from us. Since this is the most powerful kind of web hosting, it is quite likely that you will run very popular sites that will draw lots of visitors, and since InnoDB is one of the very best choices for such Internet sites, we will enable it along with all the other software apps that are available with a Hepsia-equipped dedicated server. If you set up a brand-new database in your account, there won’t be any activated storage engine till you start installing a PHP script, whether manually through your Internet browser or using the automatic scripts installation tool that is included in the hosting Control Panel. The needed engine will be detected automatically and will be set for the database in question, so you can install scripts that need InnoDB, as well as ones that need the default MySQL engine – MyISAM, without running into any predicament.
