InnoDB is a storage engine for MySQL databases, which is used by popular script-powered web applications such as Magento and Joomla v3. It is perfect for scalable applications, because it works really well when managing large volumes of data. Rather than locking the entire table to enter new information into a database as many other engines do, InnoDB locks only one database row, so it can complete much more operations for the same length of time. In addition, InnoDB offers a better database failure recovery and supports database transactions and foreign key constraints – a set of rules that indicate how data inserts and modifications should be treated. If a particular operation has not been entirely completed for any reason, the action will be rolled back. In this way, the content in the database will be preserved intact and won’t be partially mixed with newly added content.

InnoDB in Cloud Website Hosting

While InnoDB is either not offered or it is a paid upgrade with many web hosting companies, it is an integral part of the default set of services that we are offering with our cloud website hosting packages. If you want to use a PHP-driven web application that requires InnoDB in particular, in order to be installed and to work properly, you won’t have to deal with any difficulties as the InnoDB database engine is available on our custom-built cloud web hosting platform. Irrespective of whether you set up a new database and install an application manually or take advantage of our 1-click application installer tool, InnoDB will be selected automatically by our platform as the default engine if the specific application needs InnoDB rather than MyISAM. In addition to the excellent crash recovery that InnoDB is offering, we also generate regular database backups, so we can swiftly recover any database in your shared hosting account.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Servers

InnoDB is included with each of our semi-dedicated plans by default, so as soon as you create a new account, you can move on and install any PHP script-powered software app that needs this database storage engine. A couple of engines are installed on our cloud website hosting platform, so when you create a brand new MySQL database and begin installing an application manually, or opt to take advantage of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel-integrated application installer, the engine for the database will be chosen based on the specific app’s requirements. This will allow you to activate and run InnoDB-specific applications without the need to cope with any difficulty and without modifying any settings in your account. To be on the safe side, we’ll always keep a 1-week-old backup of all your MySQL databases, so if you delete or edit any content by accident, we can swiftly recover it.

InnoDB in VPS Servers

All VPS web hosting plans that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel come with InnoDB pre-installed, so you’ll be able to run any open-source script-based app that requires the MySQL database storage engine without configuring anything manually. You can select Hepsia on the VPS order form and your brand-new Virtual Private Server will be up and running within sixty minutes, so you can sign in and begin setting up your sites right away. Once you set up a brand new database and start the app activation process, our system will select the engine for that database automatically. In this way, you can manage various apps simultaneously without having to configure anything on the server. You can set up a WordPress personal blog that makes use of the default MySQL engine – MyISAM, and a Magento e-store that makes use of InnoDB, for instance.

InnoDB in Dedicated Servers

If you buy a new dedicated server, you’ll be able to pick one of the three Control Panels that we’re offering – cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin. Each dedicated server ordered with Hepsia comes with InnoDB pre-installed, so you will not have to add this MySQL database engine manually in order to be able to run PHP script-driven apps that need it. InnoDB is used for scalable apps and since a dedicated server will supply you with all the system resources that you require to manage very large websites, it’s very possible that you’ll use InnoDB. You’ll be able to make use of other engines as well, so if a particular application requires MyISAM rather than InnoDB, you will not have to deal with any impediment while managing it. The engine that will be used will be automatically recognized the moment the app installation process starts, so you will not have to modify any setting manually at any time.
