InnoDB is a MySQL database engine, which has been gaining popularity in recent years, as it offers a significantly better overall performance and a faster crash recovery in comparison to the default engine used by the MySQL relational database management system – MyISAM. InnoDB is preferred by plenty of web developers that build highly scalable web applications, as it works better with huge amounts of data, while it keeps the server load low. Moreover, it uses row-level locking if anything should be modified, while lots of other engines lock the entire database table and thus need more time to fulfill multiple sequential tasks. Last, but not least, InnoDB follows a set of "all-or-nothing" rules – if the entire data modification cannot be completed for some reason, the action is rolled back to prevent confusion or the loss of data. Magento and the latest editions of Joomla are two examples of popular script-powered software platforms which have switched to InnoDB.

InnoDB in Cloud Web Hosting

You’ll be able to make use of any open-source script-driven software app that needs InnoDB in case you’ve got a Linux cloud web hosting package with our company, as the MySQL database storage engine is available on our advanced cloud platform as standard. Throughout the app activation – manual or automatic, InnoDB will be selected as the default engine and the setup will proceed impeccably if this engine is needed. You can install apps which need the MyISAM engine without encountering any obstacle as well and, once again, the engine will be selected automatically, so you will not need to edit any setting manually at any point. On top of that, we’ll also create regular backups of all the databases that you have in your shared account, so if you delete or overwrite anything, we can swiftly restore it the way it was on any of the previous seven days.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can make use of an open-source script-driven web application that requires InnoDB with all of our semi-dedicated server plans, due to the fact that all the accounts are created on our avant-garde cloud web hosting platform where the storage engine is installed. A new database can be created in two ways – manually from the Database Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, or automatically – if you use our one-click app installer tool. In either case, the needed engine will be picked automatically the moment the activation of the app starts, so you will not need to configure anything manually, no matter if the application needs InnoDB or the more frequently used MyISAM. On top of that, we’ll always be able to restore any of your databases if you unintentionally erase one, as we make a couple of backups every day, each of which is preserved for 1 whole week.

InnoDB in VPS Hosting

If our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel is picked during the signup process for your new Linux VPS hosting packages , InnoDB will be activated on the Virtual Private Server together with other required pieces of software, so you will not have to do anything if you decide to activate open-source script-driven applications that need this MySQL storage engine. MyISAM – the default MySQL engine, will be activated too. You can set up a new database and begin the app installation manually or using our 1-click installer tool. The system will automatically detect which engine the app in question requires and will assign it to the specific database, so the installation process will proceed flawlessly and the app can dump its data in that database. Therefore, you can use applications with various prerequisites about the MySQL engine without making any changes on your VPS.

InnoDB in Dedicated Web Hosting

InnoDB is available as standard with all Linux dedicated web hosting ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. It is an essential part of the standard software package that we install on all Hepsia-managed dedicated servers, so once your machine is up and running, you’ll be able to log in and to activate any script-based software app that requires this database engine. If you create a new database via the hosting Control Panel, there won’t be any activated engine until you start installing an application. Once the app installation wizard begins importing data into the database, the engine will be picked automatically based on the particular app’s requirements, so you can run both MyISAM and InnoDB without the need to select either one of them explicitly at any moment. Thus, you can make use of a broad collection of apps for your Internet sites.
