InnoDB is a popular database storage engine for the MySQL database management system. It is an alternative to the default MyISAM engine and it has a number of strong sides that make it the preferred engine for numerous open-source script-driven apps, including Magento and Joomla, which have shifted over to InnoDB for good. For example, importing immense amounts of data will be much faster with InnoDB, as it locks only a single database row to carry out a certain operation, not the entire database table, which makes the engine perfect for scalable apps. It also supports foreign keys and transactions – these refer to the manner in which the information is tackled. In simpler words, importing new or editing existent data will either be fully completed, or will be aborted and the procedure will be rolled back if any problem occurs during the process, hence the content that remains in the database won’t be damaged.

InnoDB in Cloud Web Hosting

InnoDB is offered with all our cloud web hosting service by default, not upon request or as a paid upgrade, so you can install and manage any PHP-powered web application that requires the database engine without any problems once you order your shared account. InnoDB will be selected automatically as the default engine for a given database during the app installation process, regardless of whether you make use of our single-click installation tool or create the MySQL database and set up the app manually, as long as the app requires it instead of the more popular MyISAM engine. We will carry out regular database backups, so you can rest assured that you will never lose any content if you erase a database by accident or you overwrite some essential information – you’ll simply need to inform us and we will restore your content back to normal.

It is among the engines that are available on our cloud website hosting platform, so the one that will be picked depends on the given app’s requirements. You won’t have to do anything manually to activate InnoDB, as it will be set as the default engine when you install an application – whether manually or using our 1-click app installer tool. To be on the safe side, we will create regular MySQL database backups, so if anything goes wrong following an upgrade or if you delete some data unintentionally, we will be able to get the database back to the way it was on any of the past seven days.

The needed engine will be recognized and will be set for that database, so you can install scripts that require InnoDB, as well as ones that require the default MySQL engine – MyISAM, without having to cope with any complication.
