InnoDB is a database engine for MySQL databases, which is used by widely used PHP-driven software applications like Magento and Joomla v3. It’s excellent for scalable applications, since it works stunningly well when processing enormous volumes of data. Instead of locking the entire database table to import new information into a database as many other engines do, InnoDB locks only one database row, so it can complete much more operations for the same period of time. Besides, InnoDB offers a much faster database failure recovery and supports transactions and foreign keys – a set of rules that determine how data imports and modifications should be handled. If a specific task hasn’t been entirely completed for whatever reason, the action will be rolled back. Thus, the information in the database will be preserved undamaged and will not be partially mixed with newly entered content.

InnoDB in Shared Hosting

You will be able to make use of any open-source script-powered software app that needs InnoDB in case you have a Linux shared hosting with us, as the database engine is present on our avant-garde cloud hosting platform by default. Throughout the app installation – manual or automatic, InnoDB will be selected as the default engine and the setup process will proceed impeccably if this engine is required. You can install apps that require the MyISAM engine without having to deal with any impediment as well and, once again, the engine will be selected automatically, so you won’t need to modify anything manually at any moment. On top of that, we will also create daily backups of all the MySQL databases that you’ve got in the shared web hosting account, so in case you erase or overwrite anything, we can swiftly restore it the way it was on any of the previous seven days.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting include InnoDB and you can take full advantage of all the options offered by this storage engine with any script-driven software application that requires it. InnoDB is among the engines that we have on our cloud platform, so the one that will be picked depends on the requirements of the particular app. You won’t have to do anything manually to enable InnoDB, since it will be set as the default engine whenever you install an application – whether manually or using our single-click app installer tool. To avoid any risk, we will create regular backups of all your databases, so if anything goes wrong following an update or if you erase some data accidentally, we will be able to get the database back to the way it was on any of the past seven days.

InnoDB in Dedicated Servers Hosting

InnoDB is included as standard with all Linux dedicated servers hosting that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. It is part of the default software bundle that will be pre-installed on all Hepsia-equipped dedicated servers, so once your machine is set up, you will be able to sign in and to activate any open-source script-driven web application that requires this MySQL database storage engine. When you create a new MySQL database through the hosting Control Panel, there won’t be any activated engine until you start installing an application. As soon as the app activation wizard begins importing information into the database, the engine will be picked automatically based on the requirements of the specific application, so you can run both MyISAM and InnoDB without the need to select either one of them specifically at any point. Therefore, you can make use of a huge variety of apps for your websites.
