InnoDB is a database storage engine for MySQL databases, which is used by widely used script-powered applications such as Joomla 3.x and Magento. It is perfect for scalable applications, as it works incredibly well when handling huge data volumes. Instead of locking the entire database table to append new information to a database as many other engines do, InnoDB locks only one row, so it can execute much more operations for the same period of time. What’s more, InnoDB offers an improved database crash recovery and supports database transactions and foreign key constraints – a set of rules that prescribe how data imports and updates should be treated. In case a particular operation has not been thoroughly completed for some reason, the action will be rolled back. Thus, the information in the database will be retained intact and will not be partially mixed with newly entered content.

InnoDB in Web Hosting

Every PHP-based software application that needs InnoDB will function impeccably on our avant-garde cloud platform and the database storage engine comes with all our web hosting plans. Each time you create a database manually or our app installer tool creates one automatically and an app installation is initiated, the engine that the database in question will make use of will be selected based on the app’s requirements without the need to edit any setting in your shared account. InnoDB will be chosen automatically for any app that requires this specific engine and you’ll be able to make the most of its full potential. We’ll store daily backups of your content, so in case you unintentionally delete a database that’s important to you or you overwrite some part of it, we will be able to restore your database the way it was only a few hours earlier.

InnoDB in Dedicated Hosting

Our Hepsia Control Panel is one of the options which you can choose on the server order page when you buy a dedicated server from our company. As this is the most powerful kind of hosting, it is very likely that you’ll manage popular sites that will draw many individuals, and since InnoDB is one of the best options for such websites, we will install it along with all the other software apps that are available with a Hepsia-managed dedicated server. If you set up a brand new database in your dedicated account, there won’t be any active database storage engine until you begin installing a script, whether manually through your Internet browser or using the automatic scripts installer tool that is included in the hosting Control Panel. The required engine will be recognized automatically and will be set for that database, so you can run scripts that need InnoDB, as well as ones that need the default MySQL engine, MyISAM, without needing to cope with any obstacle.
