InnoDB is a MySQL database engine, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years, because it offers a better overall performance and a faster database failure recovery in comparison to the default engine used by the MySQL relational database management system – MyISAM. InnoDB is endorsed by a lot of web developers that run scalable apps, due to the fact that it works much more effectively with immense amounts of data, while it keeps the server processing load low. Furthermore, it uses row-level locking if any information should be updated, while lots of other engines lock the entire database table and therefore need more time to execute several consecutive tasks. Last, but not least, InnoDB follows the "all-or-nothing" rule – if the entire data modification process cannot be completed successfully for some reason, the action is rolled back to avoid confusion or the loss of data. Magento and the newest versions of Joomla are two examples of widespread script-based apps that have moved to InnoDB.

InnoDB in Hosting

You will be able to install any open-source script-powered app that needs InnoDB if you’ve got a hosting plan with our company, as the MySQL storage engine is present on our leading-edge cloud website hosting platform as standard. During the app activation – manual or automatic, InnoDB will be selected as the default engine and the setup will proceed impeccably if this engine is needed. You can activate applications that use the MyISAM engine without having to deal with any problem as well and, again, the engine will be selected automatically, so you will not need to edit anything manually at any moment. On top of that, we’ll also make regular backups of all the databases that you have in your shared account, so if you erase or overwrite anything, we can easily get it back to the way it was on any of the previous seven days.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you set up a brand-new MySQL database from the Control Panel included with each of our semi-dedicated server plans and you start installing a PHP-powered software application either manually or using our single-click app installer tool, the MySQL database storage engine will be picked automatically depending on the requirements of the app in question. Since InnoDB is available on the cloud website hosting platform where your new semi-dedicated account will be set up, it will be set as the default engine for each application that needs it without any manual intervention needed on your end at any moment. To avoid any chance of losing data if you update an application or if you remove a database unintentionally, we’ll generate backups of all your MySQL databases every day, so if something happens, we can restore your data.

InnoDB in VPS Servers

In case our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel is chosen during the registration process for your new VPS web hosting plans , InnoDB will be activated on the VPS server along with other essential pieces of software, so you will not need to do anything if you choose to use script-driven software apps that need this MySQL storage engine. The default MySQL engine, MyISAM, will be installed too. You can set up a brand-new database and begin the app installation procedure manually or through our single-click installer tool. The system will recognize which engine the application in question requires and will set it for the specific MySQL database, so the installation process will continue impeccably and the app can enter its data into that database. In this way, you can use applications with different prerequisites with regard to the MySQL engine without the need to make any changes on your VPS server.

InnoDB in Dedicated Servers

If you get a new dedicated server, you’ll be able to select any of the 3 Control Panels that we are offering – Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel. Each dedicated server ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel comes with InnoDB pre-activated, so you won’t need to add this database storage engine manually so as to be able to run script-powered web applications that need it. InnoDB is used by scalable apps and since a dedicated server will supply you with all the server resources that you require to manage large-size sites, it’s quite possible that you will use InnoDB. You’ll be able to make use of other engines as well, so if a specific application needs MyISAM instead of InnoDB, you will not have any difficulty while running it. The engine that will be used will be detected automatically the moment the app installation process begins, so you will not have to configure any setting manually at any time.
