InnoDB is a storage engine for MySQL databases, which is used by popular PHP script-based web applications like Joomla 3 and Magento. It’s perfect for scalable applications, as it works unbelievably well when handling huge volumes of data. Rather than locking the entire table to import new information into a database as many other engines do, InnoDB locks only one database row, so it can perform a lot more tasks for the same length of time. Besides, InnoDB offers a much faster crash recovery and supports database transactions and foreign key constraints – a set of rules that specify how data inserts and updates should be handled. In case a specific task hasn’t been thoroughly completed for any reason, the action will be rolled back. In this way, the content in the database will be preserved undamaged and will not be partially merged with newly imported content.

InnoDB in Shared Web Hosting

InnoDB is offered with all our Linux shared web hosting packages by default, not as a paid upgrade or upon request, so you will be able to activate and run any open-source script-based software app that needs the MySQL database engine without having to deal with any problem once you order your shared web hosting account. InnoDB will be selected automatically as the default engine for a certain MySQL database during the app activation, no matter if you make use of our one-click installation tool or create the MySQL database and activate the application manually, as long as the app requires it instead of the more popular MyISAM engine. We will perform regular backups of all your databases, so you can rest assured that you won’t ever lose any content in case you erase a database unintentionally or you overwrite some essential information – you will just need to alert us and we will restore your data the way it was.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting

InnoDB is included with all our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages by default, so the moment you create a new semi-dedicated account, you can move on and activate any script-based application that requires the storage engine. A number of engines are pre-installed on our cloud web hosting platform, so when you create a new MySQL database and begin installing an application manually, or opt to make use of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel-integrated app installer, the engine for the database will be selected based on the prerequisites of the specific application. This will allow you to activate and run InnoDB-specific applications without coming across any difficulty and without changing any settings in your account. To avoid any risk, we will always keep a 7-day-old backup of all your databases, so if you erase or alter any content by mistake, we can quickly retrieve it.

InnoDB in VPS Hosting

If you select a virtual private server with our Hepsia Control Panel, the InnoDB database engine will be included in the software bundle that will be installed on your VPS server before we give it to you. You will not need to activate anything manually and you will be able to enable and manage any PHP-driven software app that needs InnoDB as soon as your Virtual Private Server is set up, which takes no more than sixty minutes after the order submission itself. A number of engines are available, so anytime you set up a database through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, a particular engine will be picked once the app activation begins and our system will detect the engine that is required by the application in question. If you need to use MyISAM, for instance, you will not have to do anything different from installing the chosen application, whether manually or using our app installer.

InnoDB in Dedicated Web Hosting

Our Hepsia Control Panel is one of the options which you can choose on the server order page when you purchase a dedicated server from our company. As this is the most powerful type of web hosting, it is pretty likely that you’ll manage highly popular Internet sites that will attract many individuals, and since InnoDB is one of the best options for such Internet sites, we will enable it along with all the other software apps that are available with a Hepsia-managed server. If you create a brand new database in your account, there won’t be any active MySQL database engine till you start installing an open-source script, whether manually via your Internet browser or using the automatic script installer tool that is available in the hosting Control Panel. The needed engine will be detected and will be set for that database, so you can make use of scripts that need InnoDB, as well as ones that require the default MySQL engine, MyISAM, without any predicaments.
