InnoDB is a MySQL database engine, which has been gaining popularity lately, because it offers a much better overall performance and an improved crash recovery compared to the default engine that is used by the MySQL DBMS – MyISAM. InnoDB is endorsed by numerous web developers that write scalable web applications, since it works more efficiently with huge data volumes, while it keeps the server processing load low. Additionally, it it locks only one row in the database if any info should be modified, whereas lots of other engines lock the entire database table and therefore require much more time to execute several successive tasks. Last, but not least, InnoDB observes a set of "all-or-nothing" rules – if the entire data modification cannot be completed for any reason, the operation is rolled back to prevent scrambling or the loss of data. Magento and the latest Joomla versions are two instances of famous open-source script-driven software platforms which have moved to InnoDB.

InnoDB in Website Hosting

While InnoDB is either not available or a paid upgrade with many hosting service providers, it’s part of the default set of features offered with our website hosting plans. If you would like to make use of a PHP script-driven web application that needs InnoDB particularly, in order to be installed and to perform correctly, you won’t come across any impediments because the InnoDB storage engine is available on our in-house built cloud web hosting platform. Irrespective of whether you set up a brand-new database and install an app manually or take advantage of our one-click application installer tool, InnoDB will be selected automatically by our platform as the default engine if the respective application needs InnoDB instead of MyISAM. In addition to the exceptional database failure recovery that InnoDB offers, we also keep regular database backups, so we can swiftly recover any MySQL database in your shared website hosting account.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can use a script-driven app that requires InnoDB with all of our semi-dedicated server plans, because all the accounts are created on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform where the MySQL storage engine is installed. A new database can be set up in two different ways – manually through the Database Manager section of the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, or automatically – if you take advantage of our one-click application installer tool. In either case, the required engine will be selected automatically as soon as the app’s activation starts, so you will not need to edit anything manually, irrespective of whether the app requires InnoDB or the more regularly used MyISAM. On top of that, we will always be able to restore any of your MySQL databases if you remove one by mistake, as we perform a few MySQL database backups every day, each of which is preserved for 1 whole week.

InnoDB in VPS Hosting

If you select a virtual private server with our Hepsia Control Panel, the InnoDB storage engine will be an essential part of the standard software pack that will be pre-installed on your server before we hand it over to you. You will not have to set up anything manually and you’ll be able to install and use any script-based web app that needs InnoDB when your Virtual Private Server is ready, which takes no more than one hour after the order submission procedure itself. A number of engines are offered, so anytime you set up a database via the Hepsia Control Panel, a particular engine will be selected once the app installation starts and our system will recognize the engine that is required by the app in question. If you need MyISAM, for example, you will not have to do anything different from installing the desired app, whether manually or using our app installer.

The required engine will be automatically recognized and will be assigned to the database in question, so you can install scripts that require InnoDB, as well as ones that need the default MySQL engine – MyISAM, without having to cope with any difficulty.
