InnoDB is a storage engine for MySQL databases, which is used by popular PHP-powered applications such as Joomla 3 and Magento. It’s ideal for scalable applications, because it performs very well when managing huge amounts of data. Instead of locking the entire table to append new information to a database like many other engines do, InnoDB locks only one database row, so it can process a lot more tasks for the same period of time. Additionally, InnoDB offers a much faster database crash recovery and supports transactions and foreign key constraints – rules that define how data imports and modifications should be handled. In case a given operation hasn’t been fully completed for any reason, the action will be rolled back. In this way, the content in the database will be preserved intact and will not be partially merged with new content.

InnoDB in Shared Hosting

Every PHP-powered web application that requires InnoDB will run impeccably on our innovative cloud hosting platform and the database engine comes with all our shared hosting plans. Every time you create a database manually or our app installer creates one automatically and an app installation is started, the engine that the database will make use of will be selected on the basis of the app’s specifications without having to configure any setting in your shared hosting account. InnoDB will be picked automatically for any application that requires this specific engine and you’ll be able to make the most of its full capacity. We will maintain regular backups of your content, so if you accidentally erase a database that’s important to you or you overwrite certain parts of it, we’ll be able to restore everything the way it was just several hours ago.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our semi-dedicated servers include InnoDB and you will be able to make the most of all the features of this MySQL database engine with any PHP script-driven app that requires it. InnoDB is one of the engines that are available on our cloud hosting platform, so the one that will be selected depends on the requirements of the given app. You won’t have to do anything manually to enable InnoDB, as it will be set as the default engine when you install an application – whether manually or using our single-click application installer. To avoid any risk, we’ll keep daily backups of all your databases, so if anything goes wrong after some update or if you remove some content by accident, we’ll be able to restore your database the way it was on any of the past seven days.

InnoDB in VPS Servers

When you purchase a VPS server from us, you will be able to take advantage of our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel to manage your web content. A Hepsia-equipped VPS will permit you to activate any open-source script-driven software application which requires InnoDB, as this database engine is included in the default software package that will be pre-installed on your Virtual Private Server during its creation. When you set up a new database through the hosting Control Panel, you’ll simply need to start installing an app – manually or using our application installer tool. InnoDB will be set as the default engine on the condition that the app in question requires it, so you won’t have to do anything else in your account. Identically, if an application requires MyISAM, it will be automatically set as the default engine for this particular database.
