InnoDB is a MySQL database engine, which has been gaining popularity in recent years, as it offers a much better overall performance and a faster database failure recovery in comparison to the default engine used by the MySQL relational database management system – MyISAM. InnoDB is preferred by numerous web developers that create scalable web apps, as it works more effectively with huge volumes of data, while it keeps the server processing load low. What’s more, it locks only one database row if anything should be updated, whereas lots of other engines lock the entire database table and thus require much more time to process multiple successive tasks. Last, but not least, InnoDB complies with the "all-or-nothing" rule – if the entire data modification process cannot be completed successfully for whatever reason, the action is rolled back to avoid confusion or data loss. Magento and the newest Joomla editions are two instances of famous script-based software applications that have moved to InnoDB.

InnoDB in Cloud Website Hosting

Every open-source script-based web application that requires InnoDB will function impeccably on our avant-garde cloud platform and the MySQL database engine is offered with all our cloud website hosting plans. Whenever you create a database manually or our app installer creates one automatically and an app installation process is started, the engine that the database in question will make use of will be selected on the basis of the app’s requirements without having to configure any setting in your shared web hosting account. InnoDB will be chosen automatically for any application that requires this particular engine and you will be able to get the most out of its full potential. We will make daily backups of your content, so if you unintentionally remove a MySQL database that you need or you overwrite some part of it, we will be able to restore your database the way it was only a few hours earlier.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can install a PHP-powered web application that requires InnoDB with all of our semi-dedicated server packages, as all the accounts are created on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform where the MySQL storage engine is installed. A new MySQL database can be set up in two different ways – manually through the Database Manager section of the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, or automatically – if you make use of our single-click application installer tool. Either way, the needed engine will be picked automatically as soon as the app’s installation starts, so you will not need to update anything manually, irrespective of whether the application needs InnoDB or the more regularly used MyISAM. In addition, we’ll always be able to recover any of your databases in case you accidentally erase one, as we carry out a few database backups every day, each of which is stored for one week.

InnoDB in Dedicated Servers

Our Hepsia Control Panel is among the options which you can pick on the server order page when you buy a dedicated server from our company. Since this is the most powerful type of hosting, it’s very likely that you’ll manage very popular Internet sites that will draw lots of people, and since InnoDB is among the very best choices for such sites, we’ll enable it together with all the other software applications that are available with a Hepsia-equipped server. If you create a new MySQL database in your dedicated server account, there won’t be any active MySQL storage engine till you begin installing an open-source script, whether manually via your web browser or using the automatic scripts installer that is available in the hosting Control Panel. The required engine will be automatically recognized and will be assigned to the database in question, so you can make use of scripts that require InnoDB, as well as ones that need MyISAM – the default MySQL engine, without needing to cope with any complication.
