InnoDB is a database engine for MySQL relational databases, which is used by famous open-source script-driven software apps such as Joomla 3.x and Magento. It is ideal for scalable apps, because it performs unbelievably well when processing huge volumes of data. Rather than locking the entire database table to import new information into a database like many other engines do, InnoDB locks only one database row, so it can execute much more operations for the same period of time. What’s more, InnoDB offers a faster database crash recovery and supports database transactions and foreign keys – rules that define how data inserts and updates should be treated. In case a specific task has not been fully completed for any reason, the action will be rolled back. In this way, the information in the database will stay undamaged and won’t be partially mixed with newly inserted content.

InnoDB in Cloud Hosting

InnoDB is available with all our Linux cloud packages by default, not as a paid upgrade or upon request, so you can activate and run any PHP script-powered web application that requires the MySQL database storage engine without having to deal with any obstacle as soon as you activate your account. InnoDB will be pre-selected as the default engine for a particular database during the app installation process, regardless of whether you make use of our single-click installer or create the MySQL database and install the app manually, provided that the app requires InnoDB instead of the more famous MyISAM engine. We will generate regular backups of all your MySQL databases, so you can rest assured that you will never lose any content in case you erase a database by accident or you overwrite some important info – you will just have to contact us and we will restore your content back to normal.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting

InnoDB is offered with all our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages by default, so as soon as you obtain a new account, you can go on and install any script-based application that needs this database engine. A number of engines are pre-installed on our cloud website hosting platform, so when you create a brand new MySQL 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 picked based on the given app’s prerequisites. This will permit you to activate and run InnoDB-specific applications without running into any impediment and without needing to edit any settings in your account. To take no chances, we will always keep a 1-week-old backup of all your databases, so if you erase or alter any content by mistake, we can easily retrieve it.

InnoDB in Dedicated Web Hosting

Our Hepsia Control Panel is one of the options which you can pick on the order page when you buy a dedicated server from us. Since this is the most powerful kind of web hosting, it is very likely that you’ll manage highly popular websites that will draw lots of visitors, and since InnoDB is among the best choices for such sites, we will activate it together with all the other software applications that are available with a Hepsia-managed server. If you create a brand new MySQL database in your dedicated server account, there won’t be any activated MySQL storage engine until you begin installing a script, whether manually via your web browser or using the automatic script installer tool that is included in the Control Panel. The required engine will be detected automatically and will be set for that database, so you can run scripts that require InnoDB, as well as ones that need the default MySQL engine, MyISAM, without needing to cope with any impediment.
