InnoDB is a storage engine for MySQL relational databases, which is used by popular open-source script-based software applications such as Magento and Joomla 3. It’s ideal for scalable apps, as it performs unbelievably well when managing immense volumes of data. Rather than locking the entire database table to append new information to a database like many other engines do, InnoDB locks only one row, so it can process much more operations for the same period of time. In addition, InnoDB offers an improved database crash recovery and supports transactions and foreign keys – rules that indicate how data imports and modifications should be treated. If a certain operation hasn’t been thoroughly completed for whatever reason, the action will be rolled back. Thus, the content in the database will be retained safe and sound and will not be partially merged with newly inserted content.

InnoDB in Cloud Web Hosting

While InnoDB is either a paid upgrade or it is not available at all with other hosting companies, it’s an integral part of the default set of services offered with our cloud web hosting packages. If you wish to use a script-based application that requires InnoDB particularly, in order to be activated and to operate correctly, you won’t need to deal with any obstacles because the InnoDB database storage engine is available on our custom-built cloud website hosting platform. Irrespective of whether you set up a brand new MySQL database and install an app manually or use our single-click application installer tool, InnoDB will be selected automatically by our platform as the default engine if the application needs it rather than MyISAM. In addition to the remarkable database crash recovery that InnoDB offers, we also keep daily database backups, so that we can swiftly recover any MySQL database in your shared web hosting account.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting

InnoDB is available with each of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages by default, so as soon as you obtain a new semi-dedicated account, you can go ahead and install any script-powered web app that needs this particular database storage engine. A few engines are installed on our cloud hosting platform, so when you create a new database and begin installing an application manually, or decide to take advantage of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel-integrated application installer, the engine for the database will be chosen depending on the specific app’s prerequisites. This will permit you to activate and manage InnoDB-specific applications without needing to deal with any impediment and without needing to edit any settings in your account. To avoid any risk, we will always have a one-week-old backup of all your databases, so if you erase or alter any content unintentionally, we can swiftly restore it.

MyISAM – the default MySQL engine, will be installed too. You can set up a brand new MySQL database and start the app installation manually or using our 1-click installer. The system will automatically recognize the engine that the particular application needs and will set it for the specific database, so the installation process will continue impeccably and the app can insert its data into that database.

Any server ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel comes with InnoDB pre-activated, so you will not have to enable this database engine manually so as to be able to run open-source script-based apps that require it. InnoDB is used for scalable apps and since a dedicated server will offer you all the resources that you require in order to run large-size Internet sites, it’s quite likely that you will use InnoDB. You’ll be able to use other engines as well, so if a particular application needs MyISAM instead of InnoDB, you will not run into any difficulty while running it. The engine that will be used will be automatically recognized when the app installation starts, so you won’t need to edit any setting manually at any moment.
