InnoDB is a MySQL database engine, which has been gaining popularity lately, as it provides a better overall performance and a faster crash recovery compared to the default engine used by the MySQL DBMS – MyISAM. InnoDB is preferred by lots of developers that run scalable software apps, due to the fact that it works better with large amounts of data, while it keeps the server processing load low. Also, it locks only one database row if any information should be modified, whereas lots of other engines lock the entire database table and therefore need much more time to complete multiple sequential tasks. Last, but not least, InnoDB complies with the "all-or-nothing" rule – if the entire data modification procedure cannot be completed for whatever reason, the operation is rolled back to prevent scrambling or losing data. Magento and the latest releases of Joomla are two instances of widespread PHP-driven applications which have shifted over to InnoDB.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting include InnoDB and you can make use of all the features of this MySQL storage engine with any script-based app that requires it. It is one of the engines that are available on our cloud web hosting platform, so the one that will be picked depends on the prerequisites of the particular application. You won’t have to do anything manually in order to activate InnoDB, because it will be set as the default engine whenever you install an application – whether manually or using our single-click application installer tool. To avoid any risk, we will carry out regular database backups, so if something goes wrong after some update or if you erase some content unintentionally, we’ll be able to restore your database the way it was on any of the past 7 days.

InnoDB in Dedicated Hosting

Our Hepsia Control Panel is among the features which you can select on the order page when you buy a dedicated server from us. Since this is the most powerful kind of hosting, it’s rather likely that you will run popular Internet sites that will draw many people, and since InnoDB is among the best choices for such Internet sites, we’ll enable it along with all the other software applications that come with a Hepsia-managed dedicated server. If you create a new MySQL database in your dedicated account, there won’t be any active MySQL storage engine till you start installing a script, whether manually via your Internet browser or using the automatic script installer that is available in the hosting Control Panel. The required engine will be automatically detected and will be set for that database, so you can install scripts that require InnoDB, as well as ones that require MyISAM, the default MySQL engine, without coming across any difficulty.
