InnoDB is a database engine for MySQL relational databases, which is used by well known script-driven web applications like Joomla 3.x and Magento. It’s ideal for scalable applications, as it works remarkably well when managing immense volumes of data. Rather than locking the whole table to enter new information into a database like many other engines do, InnoDB locks only one row, so it can handle much more tasks for the same period of time. Plus, InnoDB offers a much better database crash recovery and supports transactions and foreign key constraints – rules that determine how data imports and modifications should be handled. If a certain operation has not been fully completed for whatever reason, the action will be rolled back. Thus, the database content will remain intact and will not be partially mixed with newly appended content.

InnoDB in Website Hosting

While InnoDB is either a paid upgrade or it is not available at all with many web hosting providers, it’s an integral part of the default set of services offered with our website hosting packages. In case you’d like to use a PHP-powered software application that needs InnoDB particularly, in order to be installed and to work correctly, you will not encounter any impediments since the InnoDB database storage engine is available on our in-house built cloud website hosting platform. No matter if you set up a brand-new database and activate an app manually or take advantage of our single-click app installer tool, InnoDB will be selected automatically by our system as the default engine if the particular application requires InnoDB rather than MyISAM. Besides the amazing database failure recovery offered by InnoDB, we also maintain regular database backups, so we can easily recover any database in your shared account.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you create a brand new MySQL database from the hosting Control Panel coming with all our semi-dedicated server accounts and you begin installing an open-source script-based software application either manually or using our 1-click app installer tool, the storage engine for the MySQL database will be set automatically depending on the particular app’s prerequisites. Since InnoDB is available on the cloud web hosting platform where your new semi-dedicated server account will be created, it will be set as the default engine for each app that needs it without the need for any manual intervention on your end at any point. To prevent any chance of losing info if you update an application or if you delete a database unintentionally, we will make a backup of all your databases each and every day, so if anything happens, we can rescue your data.

InnoDB in VPS Servers

If you buy a VPS server from our company, you’ll be able to take full advantage of our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel to manage your web content. A Hepsia-managed VPS will permit you to manage any PHP-driven app which needs InnoDB, as the storage engine is an integral part of the standard software package that will be installed on the VPS server during its configuration. When you set up a new database using the Control Panel, you just need to begin installing an app – manually or using our app installer. InnoDB will be set as the default engine given that the app in question requires it, so you won’t need to do anything else in your account. Identically, if a certain application requires MyISAM, it will be automatically set as the default engine for this concrete database.

InnoDB in Dedicated Servers

Our Hepsia Control Panel is among the features which you can pick on the order page when you purchase a dedicated server from our company. Since this is the most powerful kind of web hosting, it is rather likely that you’ll manage popular websites that will draw many visitors, and since InnoDB is among the best options for such Internet sites, we will install it together with all the other software applications that are available with a Hepsia-equipped server. When you create a brand new database in your dedicated server account, there won’t be any activated database engine until you begin installing an open-source PHP script, whether manually via your browser or using the automatic script installation tool that is available in the Control Panel. The needed engine will be recognized and will be set for the database in question, so you can use scripts that require InnoDB, as well as ones that require MyISAM, the default MySQL engine, without running into any impediment.
