InnoDB is a MySQL database storage engine, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years, as it provides a much better overall performance and an improved crash recovery in comparison to the default engine that is used by the MySQL DBMS – MyISAM. InnoDB is used by plenty of programmers that build scalable software apps, since it works much more effectively with enormous data volumes, while it keeps the server load low. In addition, it locks only one database row if any info should be edited, while many other engines lock the entire table and therefore require much more time to process multiple consecutive tasks. Last, but not least, InnoDB complies with the "all-or-nothing" rule – in case the entire data modification procedure cannot be completed successfully for some reason, the operation is rolled back to prevent confusion or data loss. Magento and the latest Joomla releases are two instances of popular open-source script-based web applications which have switched to InnoDB.

InnoDB in Website Hosting

You can activate any PHP-based software app that requires InnoDB in case you’ve got a Linux website hosting with our company, as the database engine is available on our advanced cloud web hosting platform as standard. Throughout the app activation – manual or automatic, InnoDB will be selected as the default engine and the setup process will continue flawlessly in case this engine is needed. You can activate apps that require the MyISAM engine without any problems as well and, once again, the engine will be pre-selected, so you will not need to change any setting manually at any time. What’s more, we will also make regular backups of all the databases that you have in the shared web hosting account, so in case you delete or overwrite anything, we can swiftly get it back to the way it was on any of the previous 7 days.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting

InnoDB is offered with each of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting by default, so once you obtain a new semi-dedicated account, you can go on and install any open-source script-based software app that requires this particular database storage engine. Several engines are pre-installed on our cloud hosting platform, so when you create a new database and begin installing an application manually, or opt to make use of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel-integrated app installer, the engine for the database will be chosen depending on the requirements of the particular app. This will allow you to activate and run InnoDB-specific applications without running into any predicament and without having to edit any settings in your account. To take no chances, we’ll always keep a one-week-old backup of all your databases, so if you delete or edit any content by accident, we can quickly retrieve it.

InnoDB in VPS

If you pick a virtual private server with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, the InnoDB database storage engine will be an indivisible part of the standard software package that will be pre-installed on your Virtual Private Server before we give it to you. You will not need to set up anything manually and you will be able to enable and manage any open-source script-driven app that needs InnoDB once your VPS server is set up, which takes no more than sixty minutes after the order submission itself. Several engines are available, so whenever you create a database using the Hepsia Control Panel, a particular engine will be selected when the app installation process begins and our system will automatically recognize which engine is required by the application in question. If you have to use MyISAM, for instance, you won’t have to do anything different from installing the application of your preference, whether manually or using our app installer.

InnoDB in Dedicated Hosting

InnoDB is available as standard with all Linux dedicated hosting that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. It is an essential part of the software bundle that will be installed on all Hepsia-managed dedicated servers, so as soon as your physical machine is assembled, you will be able to sign in and to activate any script-based application that requires this database storage engine. When you set up a new database through the hosting Control Panel, there won’t be any activated engine until you start installing an application. As soon as the app activation wizard begins entering data into the database, the engine will be selected automatically based on the requirements of the app in question, so you can use both MyISAM and InnoDB without having to select either of them explicitly at any time. Therefore, you can make use of a broad selection of apps for your websites.
