InnoDB is a MySQL database storage engine, which has been gaining in popularity lately, because it provides a significantly better overall performance and a faster database failure recovery compared with the default engine that is used by the MySQL database management system – MyISAM. InnoDB is preferred by lots of programmers that build highly scalable applications, because it works more effectively with large data volumes, while it keeps the server load at a minimum. What’s more, it it locks only one row in the database in case any info should be edited, whereas lots of other engines lock the entire table and thus need much more time to fulfill multiple consecutive tasks. Last, but not least, InnoDB adheres to the "all-or-nothing" rule – if the entire data modification cannot be completed for whatever reason, the operation is rolled back to avoid scrambling or data loss. Magento and the latest Joomla versions are two instances of widely used open-source script-powered software apps that have switched over to InnoDB.

InnoDB in Cloud Hosting

You can activate any script-based web application that requires InnoDB if you have a Linux cloud hosting with us, as the database engine is available on our innovative cloud website hosting platform by default. During the app activation – manual or automatic, InnoDB will be selected as the default engine and the setup will continue flawlessly if this engine is required. You can install applications that use the MyISAM engine without any difficulties as well and, again, the engine will be pre-selected, so you won’t need to change any setting manually at any time. In addition, we will also create regular backups of all the MySQL databases that you have in your shared hosting account, so in case you erase or overwrite anything, we can quickly get it back to the way it was on any of the past 7 days.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting

InnoDB is available with all our Linux semi-dedicated hosting by default, so the moment you order a new account, you can move on and install any open-source script-driven web app that needs the MySQL storage engine. A number of engines are pre-installed on our cloud website hosting platform, so when you create a brand new MySQL database and begin installing an app manually, or opt to use the Hepsia hosting Control Panel-integrated application installer, the engine for the database will be selected in accordance with the prerequisites of the given app. This will allow you to activate and run InnoDB-specific apps without needing to deal with any complication and without changing any settings in your semi-dedicated account. To take no chances, we’ll always keep a seven-day-old backup of all your MySQL databases, so if you delete or edit any content accidentally, we can easily restore it.

InnoDB in VPS Hosting

If you get a virtual private server with our Hepsia Control Panel, the InnoDB database engine will be part of the default software bundle that will be installed on your Virtual Private Server before we hand it over to you. You won’t need to set up anything manually and you will be able to install and manage any open-source script-based web application that needs InnoDB as soon as your Virtual Private Server is ready, which takes no more than one hour after the order submission itself. A number of engines are offered, so whenever you set up a MySQL database using the Hepsia Control Panel, a particular engine will be picked when the app activation process begins and our system will automatically detect which engine is required by the app in question. In case you need MyISAM, for example, you won’t have to do anything different from installing the preferred application, whether manually or using our application installer tool.

InnoDB in Dedicated Web Hosting

InnoDB is included by default with all dedicated hosting services that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It is included in the standard software bundle that will be installed on all Hepsia-equipped servers, so as soon as your physical machine is set up, you will be able to log in and to install any kind of open-source script-driven software application that needs this database engine. If you set up a new database through the hosting Control Panel, there won’t be any activated engine till you start installing an application. As soon as the app setup wizard starts importing information into the database, the engine will be set automatically based on the requirements of the particular application, so you can run both InnoDB and MyISAM without selecting either one of them explicitly at any time. Thus, you can use a broad selection of applications for your sites.
