InnoDB is a MySQL database storage engine, which has been gaining in popularity lately, because it provides a better overall performance and an improved database crash recovery in comparison with the default engine that’s used by the MySQL RDBMS – MyISAM. InnoDB is preferred by lots of developers that write highly scalable web applications, as it works more effectively with enormous amounts of data, while it keeps the server load low. What’s more, it it locks only one row in the database in case anything should be modified, whereas many other engines lock the entire table and hence require more time to execute multiple successive tasks. Last, but not least, InnoDB observes a set of "all-or-nothing" rules – if the modification of the entire data cannot be completed successfully for some reason, the operation is rolled back to avoid confusion or the loss of data. Magento and the latest editions of Joomla are two instances of widespread script-based applications which have shifted over to InnoDB.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting services include InnoDB and you’ll be able to take full advantage of all the features of this database engine with any script-driven software application that requires it. It’s one of the engines that are available on our cloud web hosting platform, so the one that will be picked depends on the requirements of the specific application. You will not need to do anything manually in order to enable InnoDB, as it will be set as the default engine when you install an application – whether manually or using our one-click application installer. To be on the safe side, we’ll create daily backups of all your databases, so if something goes wrong following an update or if you remove some content unintentionally, we’ll be able to get your database back to the way it was on any of the previous 7 days.

InnoDB in VPS Web Hosting

If you pick a virtual private server with our Hepsia Control Panel, the InnoDB database engine will be an indivisible part of the default software pack that will be installed on your Virtual Private Server before we hand it over to you. You won’t have to set up anything manually and you will be able to install and manage any script-powered web app that needs InnoDB once your VPS is up and running, which takes no more than 60 minutes after the order procedure itself. Several engines are available, so anytime you create a database via the Hepsia Control Panel, a specific engine will be picked once the app installation commences and our system will detect the engine that is required by the application in question. If you need MyISAM, for instance, you won’t need to do anything different than installing the preferred application, whether manually or using our app installer tool.

InnoDB in Dedicated Servers Hosting

InnoDB comes by default with all dedicated servers hosting ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It’s an integral part of the default software bundle that will be pre-installed on all Hepsia-managed servers, so once your machine is ready, you will be able to log in and to activate a various script-powered web app that requires this particular MySQL database engine. If you set up a new database via the Control Panel, there won’t be any active engine till you start installing an application. Once the app activation wizard starts entering information into the database, the engine will be picked automatically on the basis of the requirements of the respective application, so you can run both MyISAM and InnoDB without selecting either one of them explicitly at any time. In this way, you can make use of an extensive variety of apps for your websites.
