InnoDB is a storage engine for MySQL relational databases, which is used by widespread PHP script-powered web applications such as Joomla 3 and Magento. It’s ideal for scalable applications, since it works exceptionally well when managing huge volumes of data. Instead of locking the whole table to add new information to a database like many other engines do, InnoDB locks only one database row, so it can execute much more operations for the same length of time. In addition, InnoDB offers an improved crash recovery and supports transactions and foreign key constraints – rules that determine how data inserts and updates should be handled. In case a given operation has not been thoroughly completed for any reason, the action will be rolled back. In this way, the database content will remain safe and sound and will not be partially mixed with newly appended content.

InnoDB in Shared Web Hosting

You’ll be able to run any PHP script-driven app that requires InnoDB in case you’ve got a shared web hosting with us, as the MySQL database storage engine is available on our advanced cloud website hosting platform by default. Throughout the app installation – manual or automatic, InnoDB will be selected as the default engine and the setup process will continue flawlessly if this engine is needed. You can install applications that need the MyISAM engine without any problems as well and, again, the engine will be pre-selected, so you will not need to edit any setting manually at any time. In addition, we’ll also create daily backups of all the MySQL databases that you have in the shared web hosting account, so if you erase or overwrite something, we can easily get it back to the way it was on any of the previous 7 days.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Servers

InnoDB is offered with all our semi-dedicated servers by default, so once you get a new account, you can go ahead and install any PHP script-based application that needs this MySQL database engine. A few engines are pre-installed on our cloud web hosting platform, so when you set up a brand new MySQL database and start installing an application manually, or opt to take advantage of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel-integrated app installer tool, the engine for the database will be picked depending on the requirements of the app in question. This will allow you to activate and run InnoDB-specific applications without having to cope with any difficulty and without editing any settings in your account. To take no chances, we will always have a seven-day-old backup of all your databases, so if you erase or edit any content by accident, we can easily restore it.

InnoDB in VPS Servers

All VPS servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel come with InnoDB pre-installed, so you will be able to run any script-driven web application that needs this storage engine without the need to configure anything manually. You can select Hepsia on the VPS order page and your new VPS server will be ready within the hour, so you can sign in and begin building your sites right away. When you create a brand new database and start the app installation process, our system will select the engine for this MySQL database automatically. In this way, you can install different apps simultaneously without changing anything on the Virtual Private Server. You can have a WordPress-based blog that uses the default MySQL engine – MyISAM, and a Magento-driven shopping portal that uses InnoDB, for instance.

InnoDB in Dedicated Servers

If you get a new dedicated server, you will be able to choose one of the three Control Panels offered by us – cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin. Any dedicated server ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel comes with InnoDB pre-installed, so you won’t have to install this MySQL database engine manually so as to be able to run open-source script-powered web apps that need it. InnoDB is used for scalable applications and since a dedicated server will offer you all the resources that you require in order to run large-scale websites, it’s quite possible that you’ll use InnoDB. You will be able to make use of other engines too, so if a given app requires MyISAM rather than InnoDB, you will not need to deal with any difficulty while managing it. The engine that will be used will be detected automatically once the app installation process starts, so you will not have to configure any settings manually at any point.
