InnoDB is a storage engine for MySQL relational databases, which is used by well known PHP script-powered apps such as Joomla 3.x and Magento. It is ideal for scalable apps, as it performs stunningly well when managing large volumes of data. Rather than locking the entire table to insert new information in a database as many other engines do, InnoDB locks only one database row, so it can handle much more operations for the same length of time. Plus, InnoDB offers a faster database crash recovery and supports transactions and foreign keys – a set of rules that specify how data imports and updates should be treated. If a given operation hasn’t been entirely completed for whatever reason, the action will be rolled back. Thus, the database content will be retained safe and sound and will not be partially merged with newly appended content.
InnoDB in Shared Website Hosting
While InnoDB is either not available or a paid upgrade with many website hosting service providers, it’s an integral part of the default set of features that we are offering with our shared website hosting packages. If you’d like to use an open-source script-powered software app that requires InnoDB in particular, in order to be installed and to function correctly, you won’t have any problems since the MySQL storage engine is available on our in-house developed cloud website hosting platform. No matter if you set up a brand new database and activate an app manually or use our one-click application installer instrument, InnoDB will be selected automatically by our system as the default engine if the application needs it rather than MyISAM. In addition to the excellent database failure recovery that InnoDB offers, we also keep regular database backups, so that we can quickly restore any MySQL database in your shared web hosting account.
InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All our semi-dedicated hosting services include InnoDB and you’ll be able to use all the options offered by this database storage engine with any PHP script-driven web app that requires it. It is among the engines that are available on our cloud hosting platform, so the one that will be selected depends on the prerequisites of the particular application. You won’t need 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 tool. To be on the safe side, we’ll create regular MySQL database backups, so if anything goes wrong following some update or if you remove some data by mistake, we’ll be able to get the database back to the way it was on any of the previous 7 days.
InnoDB in VPS Hosting
In case our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel is chosen during the registration process for a new Linux virtual private servers , InnoDB will be activated on the VPS server along with other necessary software, so you won’t have to do anything if you choose to install script-based apps that require this MySQL database storage engine. The default MySQL engine, MyISAM, will be installed as well. You can set up a new database and begin the app installation process manually or using our 1-click installer. The system will detect which engine the particular app needs and will assign it to the specific MySQL database, so the installation process will continue impeccably and the app can enter its data into that database. In this way, you can use applications with different prerequisites in regard to the MySQL engine without having to make any changes on your VPS server.
InnoDB in Dedicated Web Hosting
Our Hepsia hosting Control Panel is one of the features which you can select on the order page when you purchase a dedicated server from us.

The necessary engine will be detected and will be assigned to the database in question, so you can make use of scripts that require InnoDB, as well as ones that require MyISAM, the default MySQL engine, without coming across any complication.
