InnoDB is a database storage engine for MySQL relational databases, which is used by widely used PHP-powered apps such as Magento and Joomla v3. It is perfect for scalable apps, because it performs stunningly well when processing enormous volumes of data. Instead of locking the whole table to enter new information into a database as many other engines do, InnoDB locks only one database row, so it can execute a lot more operations for the same length of time. Besides, InnoDB offers a much faster database crash recovery and supports database transactions and foreign key constraints – a set of rules that indicate how data imports and modifications should be treated. If a particular task has not been entirely completed for some reason, the action will be rolled back. Thus, the content in the database will stay undamaged and will not be partially merged with newly appended content.

InnoDB in Cloud Website Hosting

While InnoDB is either not available or a paid upgrade with many other web hosting providers, it is part of the standard set of services offered with our cloud website hosting packages. If you would like to make use of an open-source script-powered application that requires InnoDB specifically, in order to be installed and to operate properly, you won’t encounter any obstacles because the MySQL database engine is available on our in-house developed cloud web hosting platform. Regardless of whether you create a brand-new database and install 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 specific application requires InnoDB instead of MyISAM. In addition to the amazing database failure recovery that InnoDB offers, we also maintain daily backups of all databases, so we can easily recover any MySQL database in your shared web hosting account.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting

InnoDB is available with all our Linux semi-dedicated packages by default, so the moment you get a new account, you can move on and activate any script-based software application that requires this MySQL database storage engine. Several engines are installed on our cloud website hosting platform, so when you create a brand-new database and begin installing an app manually, or opt to make use of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel-integrated app installer tool, the engine for the database will be set on the basis of the given app’s prerequisites. This will permit you to activate and manage InnoDB-specific apps without encountering any complication and without the need to configure any settings in your semi-dedicated account. To be on the safe side, we’ll always keep a seven-day-old backup of all your MySQL databases, so if you delete or edit any content by accident, we can quickly restore it.

InnoDB in Dedicated Hosting

InnoDB is available as standard with all Linux dedicated servers hosting packages that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. It is an essential part of the software package that we install on all Hepsia-managed servers, so once your physical machine is assembled, you will be able to sign in and to install a various script-driven software application that requires this database engine. If you create a new database via the Control Panel, there won’t be any active engine until you begin installing an app. Once the app activation wizard begins inserting information into the newly created database, the engine will be set automatically based on the particular app’s requirements, so you can run both InnoDB and MyISAM without the need to select either one of them explicitly at any point. In this way, you can use a huge collection of applications for your Internet sites.
