InnoDB is a MySQL database engine, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years, because it offers a significantly better overall performance and an improved database failure recovery in comparison to the default engine used by the MySQL RDBMS – MyISAM. InnoDB is used by numerous developers that run highly scalable web applications, because it works much more effectively with immense data volumes, while it keeps the server processing load at a minimum. What’s more, it uses row-level locking if anything should be edited, whereas lots of other engines lock the entire table and hence require much more time to complete multiple sequential tasks. Last, but not least, InnoDB complies with the "all-or-nothing" rule – in case the modification of the entire data cannot be completed for some reason, the operation is rolled back to prevent confusion or losing data. Magento and the latest Joomla editions are two instances of widespread PHP-based software applications that have moved to InnoDB.

InnoDB in Cloud Website Hosting

While InnoDB is either a paid upgrade or it is not available at all with many other web hosting companies, it’s part of the standard set of features that we offer with our cloud website hosting packages. In case you want to use a PHP script-powered software application that needs InnoDB specifically, in order to be activated and to function correctly, you won’t have any impediments since the MySQL storage engine is available on our custom-built cloud hosting platform. No matter if you create a new database and activate an application manually or take advantage of our one-click app installer software instrument, InnoDB will be selected automatically by our platform as the default engine if the app requires InnoDB instead of MyISAM. Besides the outstanding database failure recovery offered by InnoDB, we also generate regular backups of all databases, so that we can easily recover any MySQL database in your shared web hosting account.

InnoDB in Dedicated Web Hosting

Our Hepsia hosting Control Panel is among the options which you can choose on the order form when you buy a dedicated server from our company. As this is the most powerful type of web hosting, it’s quite likely that you will run very popular Internet sites that will draw lots of individuals, and since InnoDB is one of the best choices for such websites, we’ll activate it along with all the other software applications that are available with a Hepsia-equipped server. When you create a brand new MySQL database in your account, there won’t be any active storage engine till you start installing an open-source script, whether manually through your browser or using the automatic scripts installation tool that is integrated into the hosting Control Panel. The needed engine will be automatically recognized and will be set for the database in question, so you can run scripts that need InnoDB, as well as ones that need the default MySQL engine – MyISAM, without any difficulties.
