InnoDB is a database engine for MySQL relational databases, which is used by popular open-source script-powered web apps like Magento and Joomla 3. It’s excellent for scalable apps, since it works amazingly well when processing huge data volumes. Instead of locking the entire table to append new information to a database like many other engines do, InnoDB locks only one database row, so it can carry out 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 – a set of rules that specify how data imports and modifications should be treated. In case a certain operation has not been fully completed for some reason, the action will be rolled back. In this way, the content in the database will stay safe and sound and will not be partially mixed with newly appended content.

InnoDB in Shared Web Hosting

You can make use of any open-source script-based software app that needs InnoDB if you have a Linux shared web hosting plan with our company, as the database engine is present on our cutting-edge cloud platform by default. Throughout the app installation – manual or automatic, InnoDB will be selected as the default engine and the setup will proceed flawlessly in case this engine is needed. You can install applications which need the MyISAM engine without any problems as well and, once again, the engine will be pre-selected, so you will not have to configure anything manually at any point. What’s more, we’ll also carry out daily backups of all the databases that you’ve got in your shared web hosting account, so if you erase or overwrite anything, we can swiftly get it back to the way it was on any of the past 7 days.

InnoDB in VPS Servers

If you purchase a VPS server from our company, you’ll be able to make use of our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel to manage your web content. A Hepsia-managed VPS will allow you to manage any PHP script-driven web application that needs InnoDB, as this database storage engine is an essential part of the standard software bundle that will be installed on the server during its setup. When you set up a brand new database via the hosting Control Panel, you’ll simply have to begin installing an application – manually or using our application installer. InnoDB will be set as the default engine if the app in question needs it, so you will not have to do anything else in your VPS account. Likewise, if an app needs MyISAM, it will be automatically set as the default engine for this particular database.
