InnoDB is a storage engine for MySQL databases, which is used by famous open-source script-driven apps such as Magento and Joomla 3.x. It’s excellent for scalable apps, as it performs amazingly well when handling enormous amounts of data. Instead of locking the entire database table to insert new information in a database as many other engines do, InnoDB locks only one database row, so it can execute a lot more tasks for the same length of time. Additionally, InnoDB offers an improved database crash recovery and supports database transactions and foreign key constraints – rules that specify how data imports and updates should be handled. If a given operation hasn’t been entirely completed for some reason, the action will be rolled back. In this way, the information in the database will stay intact and won’t be partially merged with newly appended content.

InnoDB in Hosting

InnoDB is available with all our hosting by default, not as a paid upgrade or upon request, so you will be able to install and manage any open-source script-driven software application that requires the MySQL storage engine without the need to deal with any obstacle once you open your shared web hosting account. InnoDB will be selected automatically as the default engine for a given MySQL database during the app activation process, no matter if you make use of our 1-click installation tool or create the MySQL database and activate the application manually, as long as the app requires InnoDB instead of the more famous MyISAM engine. We will generate daily backups of all your MySQL databases, so you can rest assured that you won’t ever lose any content in case you erase a database unintentionally or you overwrite some crucial information – you simply need to touch base with us and we’ll restore everything back to normal.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you create a new MySQL database through the hosting Control Panel coming with each of our semi-dedicated server packages and you begin installing a script-driven software application either manually or using our 1-click app installer tool, the database storage engine will be selected automatically on the basis of the prerequisites of the app in question. As InnoDB is available on the cloud platform where your new semi-dedicated account will be created, it will be set as the default engine for each app that needs it without any manual intervention required on your end at any point. To prevent any risk of losing data if you update an app or if you remove a database by mistake, we will make a backup of all your databases each day, so if anything goes wrong, we can retrieve your content.

InnoDB in Dedicated Servers

Our Hepsia hosting Control Panel is among the options that you can select on the order page when you purchase a dedicated server from our company. Since this is the most powerful kind of website hosting, it’s very likely that you’ll manage popular Internet sites that will attract many individuals, and since InnoDB is one of the very best choices for such Internet sites, we will enable it together with all the other software apps that come with a Hepsia-equipped dedicated server. If you create a new database in your dedicated server account, there won’t be any active storage engine until you start installing an open-source script, whether manually via your Internet browser or using the automatic script installer tool that is included in the Control Panel. The required engine will be automatically detected and will be set for that database, so you can activate scripts that need InnoDB, as well as ones that need MyISAM, the default MySQL engine, without the need to cope with any difficulty.
