InnoDB is a storage engine for MySQL relational databases, which is used by popular open-source script-powered applications such as Joomla 3.x and Magento. It’s ideal for scalable apps, because it performs stunningly well when handling immense data volumes. Instead of locking the entire table to enter new information into a database as many other engines do, InnoDB locks only one row, so it can process a lot more operations for the same period of time. Besides, InnoDB offers a better database crash recovery and supports database transactions and foreign keys – a set of rules that prescribe how data imports and modifications should be treated. If a specific task has not been fully completed for any reason, the action will be rolled back. Thus, the information in the database will be retained safe and sound and will not be partially mixed with newly entered content.

InnoDB in Cloud Website Hosting

InnoDB is available with all our Linux cloud website hosting packages by default, not upon request or as a paid upgrade, so you’ll be able to install and run any open-source script-powered web app which requires the database engine without having to deal with any obstacle as soon as you open your shared web hosting account. InnoDB will be selected automatically as the default engine for a certain MySQL database during the app installation, irrespective of whether you make use of our single-click installation tool or create the database and set up the app manually, provided that the app requires InnoDB instead of the more famous MyISAM engine. We will carry out daily backups of all your MySQL databases, so you can rest assured that you’ll never lose any content if you erase a database by accident or you overwrite some important info – you will simply have to notify us and we’ll restore your content the way it was.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you set up a brand-new MySQL database through the hosting Control Panel offered with all our semi-dedicated server accounts and you start installing a script-powered web application either manually or using our 1-click application installer, the storage engine for the MySQL database will be selected automatically depending on the requirements of the particular application. As InnoDB is available on the cloud web hosting platform where your new account will be set up, it will be set as the default engine for each app that needs it without the need for any manual intervention on your end at any point. To avoid any chance of losing information if you update an app or if you delete a database accidentally, we’ll make backups of all your databases each day, so if anything goes wrong, we can retrieve your data.

InnoDB in VPS Web Hosting

If you order a virtual private server from us, you’ll be able to make use of our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel to manage your web content. A Hepsia-equipped Virtual Private Server will permit you to activate any open-source script-powered software app which requires InnoDB, as this storage engine is an integral part of the software package that will be installed on the VPS server during its setup. When you set up a new database using the Control Panel, you simply need to begin installing an app – manually or using our app installer. InnoDB will be set as the default engine as long as the application in question requires it, so you will not have to do anything else in your VPS account. Equivalently, if a given app needs MyISAM, it will be automatically set as the default engine for this particular MySQL database.

InnoDB in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Our Hepsia Control Panel is one of the options that you can pick on the server configuration page when you purchase a dedicated server from our company. Since this is the most powerful kind of web hosting, it’s rather likely that you will run popular Internet sites that will draw a lot of visitors, and since InnoDB is one of the best choices for such websites, we’ll install it together with all the other software apps that are available with a Hepsia-equipped dedicated server. If you create a new database in your dedicated account, there won’t be any activated database storage engine till you start installing an open-source PHP script, whether manually through your browser or using the automatic script installer tool that is integrated into the Control Panel. The necessary engine will be detected and will be assigned to the database in question, so you can make use of scripts that need InnoDB, as well as ones that require MyISAM, the default MySQL engine, without any problems.
