InnoDB is a database storage engine for MySQL databases, which is used by widely used PHP-driven web applications like Joomla 3 and Magento. It’s excellent for scalable apps, as it performs really well when handling enormous data volumes. Rather than locking the whole table to enter new information into a database like many other engines do, InnoDB locks only one database row, so it can handle a lot more operations for the same length of time. What’s more, InnoDB offers a better crash recovery and supports database transactions and foreign key constraints – a set of rules that determine how data inserts and modifications should be handled. If a specific operation has not been entirely completed for whatever reason, the action will be rolled back. Thus, the information in the database will be retained undamaged and will not be partially merged with newly appended content.

InnoDB in Shared Website Hosting

You will be able to use any open-source script-driven web application that needs InnoDB in case you have a shared website hosting with our company, as the database storage engine is available on our cutting-edge cloud platform as standard. During the app installation – manual or automatic, InnoDB will be selected as the default engine and the setup will continue impeccably in case this engine is required. You can run applications that need the MyISAM engine without having any difficulty as well and, once again, the engine will be pre-selected, so you will not have to edit anything manually at any time. Furthermore, we’ll also carry out daily backups of all the MySQL databases that you’ve got in the shared web hosting account, so in case you erase or overwrite something, we can quickly get it back to the way it was on any of the previous seven days.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our semi-dedicated servers come with InnoDB and you’ll be able to take full advantage of all the options offered by this MySQL database engine with any open-source script-driven web application that requires it. It’s one of the engines that we have on our cloud website hosting platform, so the one that will be picked depends on the prerequisites of the particular app. You won’t have to do anything manually in order to activate InnoDB, since it will be set as the default engine whenever you install an application – whether manually or using our one-click app installer. To avoid any risk, we’ll keep daily MySQL database backups, so if something goes wrong after some update or if you delete some content unintentionally, we will be able to restore your database the way it was on any of the past 7 days.

InnoDB in Dedicated Servers

InnoDB is included as standard with all dedicated servers ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. It is an essential part of the software bundle that will be installed on all Hepsia-equipped servers, so as soon as your machine is up and running, you will be able to sign in and to install any kind of open-source script-powered application that needs this MySQL database engine. When you set up a new database via the Control Panel, there won’t be any activated engine till you start installing an app. Once the app configuration wizard starts entering data into the newly created database, the engine will be set automatically on the basis of the given app’s prerequisites, so you can run both MyISAM and InnoDB without selecting either of them explicitly at any moment. Thus, you can make use of a wide range of apps for your websites.
