InnoDB is a database storage engine for MySQL databases, which is used by famous open-source script-driven web apps like Joomla 3.x and Magento. It’s perfect for scalable apps, as it works unbelievably well when managing immense data volumes. Instead of locking the whole table to import new information into a database like many other engines do, InnoDB locks only one row, so it can complete a lot more operations for the same period of time. Besides, InnoDB offers a much better database crash recovery and supports database transactions and foreign key constraints – rules that specify how data imports and modifications should be treated. If a specific operation has not been entirely completed for whatever reason, the action will be rolled back. Thus, the database content will be kept undamaged and will not be partially merged with new content.
InnoDB in Shared Hosting
You can activate any script-based app that needs InnoDB if you have a Linux shared hosting package with our company, as the MySQL database engine is present on our cutting-edge cloud website hosting platform by default. Throughout the app activation – manual or automatic, InnoDB will be selected as the default engine and the setup will proceed flawlessly in case this engine is required. You can run applications which require the MyISAM engine without encountering any problem as well and, again, the engine will be pre-selected, so you won’t have to configure any setting manually at any time. In addition, we will also create daily backups of all the databases that you’ve got in the account, so in case you erase or overwrite something, we can swiftly get it back to the way it was on any of the past 7 days.
InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages support InnoDB and you will be able to make the most of all the options offered by this MySQL database engine with any PHP script-driven app that needs it. It is one of the engines that are available on our cloud website hosting platform, so the one that will be used depends on the requirements of the particular app. You will not need to do anything manually to enable InnoDB, since it will be set as the default engine when you install an app – whether manually or using our one-click application installer. To be on the safe side, we will keep regular backups of all your MySQL databases, so if something goes wrong following some update or if you delete some data unintentionally, we will be able to restore your database the way it was on any of the past 7 days.

The required engine will be recognized automatically and will be assigned to that database, so you can activate scripts that require InnoDB, as well as ones that require the default MySQL engine – MyISAM, without experiencing any difficulty.
