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 crash recovery in comparison with the default engine that is used by the MySQL RDBMS – MyISAM. InnoDB is used by lots of web developers that create scalable apps, due to the fact that it works better with immense volumes of data, while it keeps the server processing load at a minimum. In addition, it it locks only one row in the database if anything should be updated, whereas many other engines lock the entire database table and thus require more time to complete several successive tasks. Last, but not least, InnoDB complies with the "all-or-nothing" rule – in case the entire data modification procedure cannot be completed for any reason, the action is rolled back to avoid confusion or losing data. Magento and the latest Joomla releases are two examples of famous PHP-driven apps which have shifted over to InnoDB.

InnoDB in Web Hosting

While InnoDB is either not available or a paid upgrade with other hosting companies, it is part of the default set of features that we offer with our web hosting packages. If you wish to use an open-source script-driven software application that requires InnoDB in particular, in order to be installed and to perform correctly, you won’t have any impediments as the database engine is available on our custom cloud website hosting platform. No matter if you set up a new MySQL database and install an app manually or make use of our single-click application installer instrument, InnoDB will be selected automatically by our system as the default engine if the application needs it rather than MyISAM. In addition to the incredible database crash recovery offered by InnoDB, we also carry out daily database backups, so that we can quickly recover any MySQL database in your shared account.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can use a script-based software application that requires InnoDB with any of our semi-dedicated server packages, due to the fact that all the accounts are set up on our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform where the MySQL storage engine is installed. A new database can be created in two separate ways – manually from the Database Manager section of the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, or automatically – when you take advantage of our one-click app installer. Either way, the required engine will be selected automatically as soon as the application’s installation starts, so you won’t have to modify anything manually, irrespective of whether the application requires InnoDB or the more commonly used MyISAM. In addition, we will always be able to retrieve any of your databases in case you delete one by mistake, as we perform a few MySQL database backups every day, each of which is kept for 7 days.

InnoDB in VPS Web Hosting

All VPS web hosting that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel come with InnoDB pre-installed, so you’ll be able to make use of any PHP script-powered web application that requires this database engine without needing to activate anything manually. You can pick Hepsia on the VPS order form and your new Virtual Private Server will be set up within 60 minutes, so you can log in and begin creating your websites straight away. When you create a brand-new MySQL database and start the app installation process, our system will pick the engine for this MySQL database automatically. Thus, you can activate various applications at the same time without the need to update anything on the server. You can create a WordPress online journal that makes use of the default MySQL engine – MyISAM, and a Magento-powered e-commerce site that makes use of InnoDB, for instance.

InnoDB in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Our Hepsia hosting Control Panel is one of the features which you can pick on the server configuration page when you purchase a dedicated server from us. Since this is the most powerful kind of web hosting, it is quite likely that you will manage popular websites that will attract lots of people, and since InnoDB is among the best choices for such websites, we’ll enable it together with all the other software apps that are available with a Hepsia-managed server. When you create a new MySQL database in your account, there won’t be any active database storage engine until you start installing an open-source PHP script, whether manually via your Internet browser or using the automatic script installer that is included in the Control Panel. The needed engine will be recognized automatically and will be assigned to that database, so you can install scripts that need InnoDB, as well as ones that require the default MySQL engine, MyISAM, without the need to cope with any problem.
