InnoDB is a MySQL database storage engine, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years, because it offers a significantly better overall performance and a faster database crash recovery compared to the default engine that is used by MySQL – MyISAM. InnoDB is endorsed by a lot of web developers that create highly scalable software apps, due to the fact that it works much more efficiently with immense volumes of data, while it keeps the server load low. In addition, it uses row-level locking in case anything should be modified, whereas many other engines lock the entire database table and thus require more time to process several consecutive tasks. Last, but not least, InnoDB adheres to the "all-or-nothing" rule – in case the entire data modification cannot be completed for any reason, the operation is rolled back to avoid confusion or losing data. Magento and the latest editions of Joomla are two examples of famous script-based software applications that have shifted over to InnoDB.

InnoDB in Cloud Website Hosting

You’ll be able to activate any PHP-based software app that needs InnoDB if you’ve got a Linux cloud website hosting with our company, as the MySQL database engine is present on our advanced cloud web hosting platform as standard. Throughout the app installation – manual or automatic, InnoDB will be selected as the default engine and the setup will proceed flawlessly in case this engine is required. You can run applications that use the MyISAM engine without the need to deal with any difficulty as well and, again, the engine will be pre-selected, so you will not need to update any setting manually at any moment. On top of that, we’ll also make regular backups of all the MySQL databases that you’ve got in your shared account, so if you erase or overwrite something, we can easily restore it the way it was on any of the previous 7 days.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you set up a brand new MySQL database from the Control Panel offered with each of our semi-dedicated server accounts and you begin installing an open-source script-driven software application either manually or using our 1-click app installer, the storage engine for the database will be selected automatically on the basis of the prerequisites of the specific app. As InnoDB is present on the cloud web hosting platform where your new semi-dedicated server account will be set up, it will be set as the default engine for any application that requires it without any manual action needed on your end at any time. To prevent any risk of losing info if you update an application or if you remove a database unintentionally, we will perform backups of all your databases each and every day, so if anything goes wrong, we can recover your content.

InnoDB in VPS Web Hosting

All Linux VPS web hosting that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel come with InnoDB already installed, so you’ll be able to take advantage of any PHP-driven app that needs this MySQL database storage engine without activating anything manually. You can choose Hepsia on the VPS order page and your brand new server will be ready within 1 hour, so you can log in and begin building your Internet sites straight away. When you create a brand-new MySQL database and begin the app installation process, our system will select the engine for this MySQL database automatically. Thus, you can use various applications at the same time without the need to edit anything on the VPS server. You can have a WordPress-powered online blog that makes use of the default MySQL engine – MyISAM, and a Magento-powered Internet shop that uses the InnoDB engine, for instance.

InnoDB in Dedicated Servers Hosting

If you get a new dedicated server, you will be able to select one of the three Control Panels that we’re offering – Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel. Each server ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel comes with InnoDB pre-installed, so you won’t need to enable this database storage engine manually in order to be able to use open-source script-driven applications that require it. InnoDB is used by scalable apps and since a dedicated server will give you all the resources that you need to run large-scale websites, it is quite likely that you’ll resort to InnoDB. You’ll be able to make use of other engines too, so in case a specific application needs MyISAM rather than InnoDB, you will not have to deal with any impediment while running it. The engine that will be used will be automatically recognized the moment the app installation procedure begins, so you will not have to update any settings manually at any moment.
