InnoDB is a MySQL database engine, which has been gaining popularity in recent years, as it provides a much better overall performance and a faster crash recovery in comparison to the default engine that is used by the MySQL database management system – MyISAM. InnoDB is preferred by numerous programmers that build highly scalable software apps, since it works much more effectively with immense data volumes, while it keeps the server processing load at a minimum. What’s more, it locks only a single database row in case any info should be edited, whereas lots of other engines lock the entire database table and therefore require more time to handle multiple sequential tasks. Last, but not least, InnoDB complies with a set of "all-or-nothing" rules – if the entire data modification process cannot be completed successfully for any reason, the operation is rolled back to avoid scrambling or data loss. Magento and the latest versions of Joomla are two examples of widely used PHP-based web apps that have shifted over to InnoDB.

InnoDB in Shared Hosting

InnoDB is available with all our shared hosting services by default, not upon request or as a paid upgrade, so you will be able to activate and manage any script-driven web application which requires the MySQL database engine without any obstacles once you order your shared website hosting account. InnoDB will be pre-selected as the default engine for a specific MySQL database during the app activation, regardless of whether you take advantage of our one-click installation tool or create the database and set up the application manually, provided that the application requires it instead of the more famous MyISAM engine. We’ll make daily backups of all your databases, so you can be sure that you won’t ever lose any data if you delete a database unintentionally or you overwrite some crucial info – you will simply need to alert us and we’ll restore your database back to normal.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting

InnoDB comes with each of our semi-dedicated hosting by default, so once you buy a new semi-dedicated account, you can go ahead and install any script-based web application that requires the database storage engine. A number of engines are installed on our cloud platform, so when you set up a new database and start installing an application manually, or opt to take advantage of the Hepsia Control Panel-integrated application installer, the engine for the database will be set on the basis of the prerequisites of the application in question. This will permit you to activate and run InnoDB-specific apps without the need to cope with any problem and without the need to change any settings in your semi-dedicated account. To take no chances, we will always have a one-week-old backup of all your databases, so if you delete or alter any content by accident, we can quickly recover it.

InnoDB in VPS Web Hosting

If you order a virtual private server from us, you’ll be able to make use of our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel to manage your web content. A Hepsia-equipped Virtual Private Server will allow you to manage any PHP script-based app that needs InnoDB, as this MySQL database storage engine is part of the standard software bundle that will be installed on your server during its setup. When you set up a new database via the hosting Control Panel, you simply have to begin installing an app – manually or using our application installer tool. InnoDB will be set as the default engine as long as the app in question needs it, so you will not have to do anything else in your account. Analogously, if a given app requires MyISAM, it will be automatically set as the default engine for this specific database.

InnoDB in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Our Hepsia Control Panel is one of the options which you can select on the order page when you buy a dedicated server from us. Since this is the most powerful kind of website hosting, it’s pretty likely that you will run very popular Internet sites that will attract lots of individuals, and since InnoDB is among the very best choices for such websites, we will enable it along with all the other software applications that come with a Hepsia-equipped server. When you set up a new MySQL database in your account, there won’t be any active MySQL database engine until you start installing an open-source script, whether manually via your browser or using the automatic scripts installer tool that is available in the hosting Control Panel. The necessary engine will be detected automatically and will be set for the database in question, so you can activate scripts that require InnoDB, as well as ones that need MyISAM – the default MySQL engine, without the need to cope with any complication.
