InnoDB is a MySQL database engine, which has been gaining popularity in recent years, as it provides a much better overall performance and a faster database crash recovery in comparison to the default engine used by MySQL – MyISAM. InnoDB is endorsed by lots of web developers that create highly scalable web applications, since it works much more efficiently with immense amounts of data, while it keeps the server processing load low. Furthermore, it it locks only one row in the database if anything should be modified, whereas lots of other engines lock the entire table and therefore require more time to accomplish multiple successive tasks. Last, but not least, InnoDB adheres to a set of "all-or-nothing" rules – if the entire data modification procedure cannot be completed for any reason, the operation is rolled back to prevent scrambling or the loss of data. Magento and the latest versions of Joomla are two examples of widely used open-source script-based web apps that have shifted over to InnoDB.

InnoDB in Web Hosting

InnoDB is available with all our Linux web hosting by default, not upon request or as a paid upgrade, so you will be able to install and manage any open-source script-driven web application which needs the MySQL storage engine without any problem once you activate your shared web hosting account. InnoDB will be pre-selected as the default engine for a specific database during the app installation, irrespective of whether you use our 1-click installer or create the MySQL database and activate the app manually, as long as the app requires it instead of the more popular MyISAM engine. We’ll perform regular backups of all your MySQL databases, so you can rest assured that you will never lose any data if you delete a database accidentally or you overwrite some essential info – you’ll just have to touch base with us and we’ll restore your content the way it was.

InnoDB in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Our Hepsia hosting Control Panel is one of the options that you can pick on the server order page when you buy a dedicated server from us. As this is the most powerful kind of hosting, it is quite likely that you will run popular Internet sites that will draw a lot of people, and since InnoDB is one of the best options for such Internet sites, we will activate it together with all the other software applications that are available with a Hepsia-managed server. When you set up a brand-new MySQL database in your account, there won’t be any activated database engine until you start installing an open-source PHP script, whether manually through your web browser or using the automatic script installer that is integrated into the Control Panel. The needed engine will be detected and will be set for that database, so you can install scripts that require InnoDB, as well as ones that require the default MySQL engine – MyISAM, without coming across any difficulty.
