InnoDB is a MySQL database storage engine, which has been gaining in popularity lately, because it provides a significantly better overall performance and a faster database crash recovery in comparison to the default engine that’s used by the MySQL relational database management system – MyISAM. InnoDB is used by a lot of web developers that create highly scalable software applications, due to the fact that it works more efficiently with huge amounts of data, while it keeps the server processing load low. What’s more, it it locks only one row in the database in case any information should be edited, whereas many other engines lock the entire database table and thus require more time to fulfill multiple successive tasks. Last, but not least, InnoDB follows the "all-or-nothing" rule – if the entire data modification procedure cannot be completed for whatever reason, the action is rolled back to prevent confusion or the loss of data. Magento and the latest Joomla releases are two examples of widely used open-source script-powered apps that have moved to InnoDB.

InnoDB in Cloud Web Hosting

You will be able to install any script-based web application that needs InnoDB if you’ve got a Linux cloud web hosting with us, as the database storage engine is present on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform by default. Throughout the app installation – manual or automatic, InnoDB will be selected as the default engine and the setup will proceed flawlessly if this engine is required. You can install applications which require the MyISAM engine without encountering any difficulty as well and, again, the engine will be pre-selected, so you will not need to update anything manually at any time. What’s more, we’ll also generate regular backups of all the MySQL databases that you’ve got in your shared web hosting account, so in case you delete or overwrite something, we can easily get it back to the way it was on any of the past 7 days.

InnoDB in VPS Web Hosting

All Linux VPS web hosting that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel come with InnoDB pre-activated, so you will be able to run any script-driven web app that requires the database storage engine without the need to activate anything manually. You can pick Hepsia on the VPS configuration page and your brand new server will be up and running within sixty minutes, so you can log in and begin creating your websites right away. Once you create a new MySQL database and start the app activation process, our system will set the engine for this database automatically. Thus, you can install different applications simultaneously without the need to change anything on the VPS server. You can set up a WordPress-driven personal blog that uses MyISAM – the default MySQL engine, and a Magento e-store that uses InnoDB, for instance.

InnoDB in Dedicated Servers Hosting

All Linux dedicated servers hosting ordered with our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel include a software package that’s pre-installed and besides everything else, you’ll get the InnoDB database storage engine, so you won’t have to add it manually if you would like to activate open-source scripts that need it. All it takes to run such a script is to create a new MySQL database and to begin the installation – once the installation wizard receives access to the database and starts dumping data in it, InnoDB will be set as the default MySQL engine for this database on the condition that it is the one required by the particular script. You’ll also be able to activate scripts that need the other widely used MySQL engine, MyISAM, so you won’t need to update any settings on the server. This will allow you to activate various scripts on a single server and to use it to its fullest potential.
