InnoDB is a MySQL storage engine, which has been gaining popularity lately, because it offers a better overall performance and a faster database failure recovery compared with the default engine that’s used by MySQL – MyISAM. InnoDB is used by lots of developers that create highly scalable apps, since it works much more efficiently with large volumes of data, while it keeps the server load at a minimum. In addition, it locks only one database row if any information should be edited, whereas many other engines lock the entire database table and thus require more time to perform multiple consecutive tasks. Last, but not least, InnoDB adheres to the "all-or-nothing" rule – in case the entire data modification process cannot be completed for whatever reason, the operation is rolled back to avoid confusion or the loss of data. Magento and the latest Joomla releases are two instances of popular script-powered software applications that have moved to InnoDB.

InnoDB in Shared Website Hosting

You will be able to activate any PHP-based software application that needs InnoDB in case you have a shared website hosting plan with our company, as the MySQL database engine is present on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform by default. Throughout the app installation – manual or automatic, InnoDB will be selected as the default engine and the setup will continue impeccably if this engine is required. You can activate applications that use the MyISAM engine without the need to deal with any complication as well and, once again, the engine will be pre-selected, so you will not need to update any setting manually at any point. On top of that, we’ll also create regular backups of all the databases that you’ve got in the shared web hosting account, so in case you delete or overwrite anything, we can swiftly get it back to the way it was on any of the previous 7 days.

InnoDB in VPS Servers

If you choose a VPS server with our Hepsia Control Panel, the InnoDB database engine will be an indivisible part of the default software bundle that will be installed on your server before we hand it over to you. You won’t have to configure anything manually and you’ll be able to install and use any script-powered software application that needs InnoDB when your VPS server is ready, which takes no more than 1 hour after the order submission itself. Several engines are available, so anytime you create a database through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, a particular engine will be selected once the app installation commences and our system will automatically detect which engine is required by the app in question. In case you have to use MyISAM, for instance, you won’t have to do anything different than installing the application of your preference, whether manually or using our app installer tool.

InnoDB in Dedicated Servers

InnoDB is available by default with all dedicated web hosting plans that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. It is included in the default software package that will be pre-installed on all Hepsia-managed dedicated servers, so once your machine is up and running, you’ll be able to sign in and to install any type of PHP script-powered web application that requires this particular database engine. If you create a new MySQL database through the Control Panel, there won’t be any active engine till you begin installing an app. As soon as the app activation wizard begins importing data into the newly created database, the engine will be set automatically on the basis of the specific app’s requirements, so you can run both InnoDB and MyISAM without selecting either one of them explicitly at any point. Thus, you can use an extensive variety of apps for your sites.
