InnoDB is a MySQL database storage engine, which has been gaining popularity in recent years, because it offers a much better overall performance and a faster database failure recovery in comparison with the default engine that is used by the MySQL RDBMS – MyISAM. InnoDB is used by many devs that write highly scalable software apps, since it works much better with immense amounts of data, while it keeps the server processing load low. In addition, it it locks only one row in the database if any information should be edited, while lots of other engines lock the entire table and therefore need much more time to accomplish several successive tasks. Last, but not least, InnoDB obeys the "all-or-nothing" rule – if the entire data modification cannot be completed successfully for any reason, the operation is rolled back to avoid scrambling or the loss of data. Magento and the newest editions of Joomla are two examples of popular PHP script-powered applications that have shifted over to InnoDB.

InnoDB in Cloud Web Hosting

You will be able to make use of any PHP-powered software application that requires InnoDB if you have a Linux cloud web hosting with our company, as the MySQL storage engine is available on our leading-edge cloud platform by default. Throughout the app activation – manual or automatic, InnoDB will be selected as the default engine and the setup will continue flawlessly if this engine is needed. You can activate apps that require the MyISAM engine without the need to deal with any problem as well and, again, the engine will be pre-selected, so you will not have to edit any setting manually at any time. In addition, we’ll also perform daily backups of all the databases that you’ve got in the shared hosting account, so in case you erase or overwrite anything, we can quickly restore it the way it was on any of the previous 7 days.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting

InnoDB comes with each of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting by default, so once you buy a new account, you can go on and install any open-source script-based web app that requires the database storage engine. A couple of engines are pre-installed on our cloud web hosting platform, so when you set up a new MySQL database and start installing an application manually, or opt to make use of the Hepsia Control Panel-integrated application installer, the engine for the database will be picked depending on the prerequisites of the given app. This will allow you to install and manage InnoDB-specific applications without needing to cope with any complication and without having to edit any settings in your semi-dedicated account. To avoid any risk, we will always have a seven-day-old backup of all your MySQL databases, so if you remove or edit any content unintentionally, we can quickly rescue it.

MyISAM – the default MySQL engine, will be activated as well. You can create a new database and start the app installation manually or through our 1-click installation tool. The system will detect the engine that the particular app needs and will set it for the specific database, so the installation process will proceed impeccably and the application can insert its content into that database. Therefore, you can run applications with various requirements in regard to the MySQL engine without making any modifications on your Virtual Private Server.

The needed engine will be recognized automatically and will be assigned to the database in question, so you can activate scripts that require InnoDB, as well as ones that require MyISAM – the default MySQL engine, without coming across any impediment.
