InnoDB is a database storage engine for MySQL relational databases, which is used by famous open-source script-powered software apps like Magento and Joomla v3. It’s excellent for scalable apps, as it works incredibly well when managing immense amounts of data. 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 much more tasks 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 specify how data imports and modifications should be handled. If a specific operation hasn’t been entirely completed for some reason, the action will be rolled back. Thus, the information in the database will remain undamaged and will not be partially mixed with newly imported content.

InnoDB in Web Hosting

Every open-source script-driven software app that needs InnoDB will run flawlessly on our advanced cloud platform and the MySQL storage engine is available with all our web hosting packages. Whenever you create a MySQL database manually or our app installer creates one automatically and an app installation process is initiated, the engine that the database will make use of will be selected in accordance with the app’s requirements without having to update any setting in your hosting account. InnoDB will be picked automatically for any app that requires this specific engine and you will be able to make the most of its full capacity. We’ll make regular content backups, so if you unintentionally remove a database that is important to you or you overwrite specific parts of it, we will be able to restore your content the way it was only a few hours earlier.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you set up a new MySQL database from the hosting Control Panel offered with all our semi-dedicated server plans and you begin installing a PHP script-based app either manually or using our 1-click app installer, the storage engine for the database will be picked automatically depending on the given app’s prerequisites. As InnoDB is present on the cloud website hosting platform where your new semi-dedicated hosting account will be set up, it will be set as the default engine for any application that requires it without the need for any manual intervention on your end at any moment. To avoid any chance of losing data if you update an app or if you erase a database accidentally, we will make backups of all your MySQL databases each and every day, so if anything happens, we can rescue your content.

InnoDB in VPS

If our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel is picked during the registration process for your new Linux virtual private servers , InnoDB will be activated on the Virtual Private Server together with other required software, so you won’t have to do anything if you decide to use open-source script-powered applications that need this MySQL storage engine. MyISAM, the default MySQL engine, will be activated as well. You can create a brand-new database and begin the app installation process manually or through our single-click installer tool. The system will automatically detect the engine that the particular application requires and will assign it to the specific database, so the installation process will continue impeccably and the application can insert its data into that database. Thus, you can manage apps with different prerequisites about the MySQL engine without making any changes on your Virtual Private Server.

InnoDB in Dedicated Hosting

Our Hepsia Control Panel is among the options which you can select on the order form when you purchase a dedicated server from us. As this is the most powerful type of website hosting, it is very likely that you’ll run very popular websites that will attract many individuals, and since InnoDB is among the best options for such websites, we’ll install it together with all the other software apps that are available with a Hepsia-equipped server. If you create a brand new database in your dedicated account, there won’t be any active storage engine till you begin installing a PHP script, whether manually via your browser or using the automatic scripts installer tool that is integrated into the hosting Control Panel. The needed engine will be automatically detected and will be set for the database in question, so you can run scripts that require InnoDB, as well as ones that need the default MySQL engine, MyISAM, without encountering any problem.
