InnoDB is a database engine for MySQL databases, which is used by famous PHP script-based software applications such as Joomla 3 and Magento. It’s excellent for scalable apps, as it works stunningly well when processing immense data volumes. Instead of locking the entire table to insert new information in a database as many other engines do, InnoDB locks only one row, so it can execute a lot more tasks for the same length of time. In addition, InnoDB offers a much faster database crash recovery and supports database transactions and foreign key constraints – a set of rules that determine how data imports and updates should be handled. If a given task hasn’t been fully completed for whatever reason, the action will be rolled back. Thus, the database content will be kept intact and will not be partially merged with newly inserted content.

InnoDB in Hosting

While InnoDB is either not available or a paid upgrade with many other hosting providers, it is an integral part of the default set of services offered with our hosting packages. If you’d like to make use of a PHP script-driven web app that needs InnoDB specifically, in order to be activated and to work properly, you will not come across any impediments as the storage engine is available on our custom-developed cloud platform. Irrespective of whether you set up a brand-new database and activate an application manually or make use of our one-click app installer instrument, InnoDB will be selected automatically by our system as the default engine if the application requires it instead of MyISAM. In addition to the excellent database failure recovery that InnoDB offers, we also generate regular database backups, so we can swiftly recover any database in your shared web hosting account.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you create a brand-new MySQL database from the Control Panel included with all our semi-dedicated server plans and you start installing an open-source script-powered app either manually or using our single-click app installer tool, the database storage engine will be set automatically depending on the prerequisites of the particular application. As InnoDB is available on the cloud website hosting platform where your new semi-dedicated hosting account will be set up, it will be set as the default engine for each app that requires it without any manual intervention required on your end at any time. To avoid any chance of losing data if you update an app or if you remove a database unintentionally, we will make backups of all your MySQL databases each and every day, so if something happens, we can rescue your data.

InnoDB in VPS Hosting

When you buy a virtual private server from us, you’ll be able to take advantage of our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel to manage your web content. A Hepsia-managed Virtual Private Server will permit you to use any PHP-powered software app that needs InnoDB, as this storage engine is part of the default software bundle that will be installed on the Virtual Private Server during its creation. When you create a brand-new database using the hosting Control Panel, you’ll just have to start installing an application – manually or using our application installer. InnoDB will be set as the default engine if the application in question needs it, so you will not have to do anything else in your account. Similarly, if a given application needs MyISAM, it will be automatically set as the default engine for this specific MySQL database.

InnoDB in Dedicated Web Hosting

Our Hepsia hosting Control Panel is among the options which you can select on the server order page when you buy a dedicated server from us. As this is the most powerful kind of website hosting, it is very likely that you’ll run highly popular Internet sites that will draw many people, and since InnoDB is among the best choices for such websites, we will enable it along with all the other software applications that are offered with a Hepsia-equipped server. When you set up a new MySQL database in your account, there won’t be any active database engine until you start installing a script, whether manually through your web browser or using the automatic scripts installation tool that is available in the hosting Control Panel. The needed engine will be detected and will be set for the database in question, so you can run scripts that need InnoDB, as well as ones that need MyISAM, the default MySQL engine, without needing to deal with any complication.
