InnoDB is a database storage engine for MySQL databases, which is used by well known PHP-based software applications like Joomla 3.x and Magento. It’s perfect for scalable applications, because it excels in managing enormous data volumes. Rather than locking the entire database table to insert new information in a database like many other engines do, InnoDB locks only one row, so it can execute much more operations for the same length of time. Plus, InnoDB offers a much faster database failure recovery and supports transactions and foreign keys – a set of rules that prescribe how data inserts and modifications should be handled. In case a given operation has not been thoroughly completed for whatever reason, the action will be rolled back. Thus, the database content will stay undamaged and won’t be partially merged with newly added content.

InnoDB in Hosting

InnoDB is offered with all our Linux hosting packages by default, not as a paid upgrade or upon request, so you will be able to install and manage any script-powered software app that needs the database engine without any problems as soon as you order your shared website hosting account. InnoDB will be selected automatically as the default engine for a particular database during the app installation, irrespective of whether you take advantage of our 1-click installer or create the database and set up the application manually, as long as the app requires InnoDB instead of the more popular MyISAM engine. We will carry out regular backups of all your MySQL databases, so you can rest assured that you won’t ever lose any content if you erase a database accidentally or you overwrite some important information – you will simply have to contact us and we’ll restore everything back to normal.

InnoDB in Dedicated Hosting

Our Hepsia hosting Control Panel is one of the features that you can choose on the order form when you purchase a dedicated server from our company. As this is the most powerful type of web hosting, it’s rather likely that you will manage very popular Internet sites that will attract lots of individuals, and since InnoDB is among the best options for such Internet sites, we will install it along with all the other software apps that are offered with a Hepsia-equipped server. When you create a brand new MySQL database in your dedicated server account, there won’t be any active MySQL database engine until you begin installing an open-source script, whether manually through your browser or using the automatic script installer that is available in the Control Panel. The necessary engine will be automatically detected and will be assigned to that database, so you can use scripts that need InnoDB, as well as ones that require MyISAM, the default MySQL engine, without having any difficulty.
