InnoDB is a storage engine for MySQL databases, which is used by widely used PHP-driven software applications such as Joomla 3 and Magento. It is excellent for scalable apps, because it performs really well when processing huge amounts of data. Rather than locking the entire database table to import new information into a database like many other engines do, InnoDB locks only one database row, so it can process a lot more operations for the same period of time. Also, InnoDB offers a better database failure recovery and supports transactions and foreign key constraints – rules that specify how data inserts and updates should be handled. If a particular operation has not been fully completed for whatever reason, the action will be rolled back. Thus, the database content will stay safe and sound and won’t be partially merged with newly inserted content.

InnoDB in Cloud Web Hosting

While InnoDB is either not available or a paid upgrade with other web hosting companies, it is an essential part of the standard set of services that we are offering with our cloud web hosting packages. If you want to use an open-source script-based software app that requires InnoDB particularly, in order to be activated and to perform properly, you won’t need to deal with any obstacles because the storage engine is available on our custom-built cloud hosting platform. No matter if you create a brand-new MySQL database and activate an application manually or make use of our one-click app installer software tool, InnoDB will be selected automatically by our platform as the default engine if the particular application needs it instead of MyISAM. In addition to the exceptional crash recovery offered by InnoDB, we also generate daily database backups, so we can swiftly recover any database in your shared account.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting support InnoDB and you will be able to take advantage of all the features of this storage engine with any PHP-based web application that needs it. InnoDB is one of the engines that are available on our cloud hosting platform, so the one that will be picked depends on the requirements of the specific application. You will not need to do anything manually in order to activate InnoDB, because it will be set as the default engine whenever you install an application – whether manually or using our one-click app installer tool. To avoid any risk, we will create daily backups of all your databases, so if something goes wrong after an upgrade or if you remove some data accidentally, we will be able to get your database back to the way it was on any of the past seven days.

InnoDB in Dedicated Hosting

All Linux dedicated hosting ordered with our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel come with a software bundle that’s pre-installed and among everything else, you will get the InnoDB database engine, so you will not have to install it manually in case you want to run PHP scripts that need it. All it takes to run such a script is to set up a new database and to initiate the installation process – once the script setup wizard gets access to the database in question and starts entering data into it, InnoDB will be set as the default MySQL engine for this database as long as it is the one needed by the particular script. You’ll also be able to use scripts that need the other widely used MySQL engine – MyISAM, so you will not need to change any settings on the server. This will enable you to use various scripts on a single physical server and to use it to its full capacity.
