InnoDB is a popular database engine for the MySQL DBMS. It is an alternative to the default engine – MyISAM, and it has numerous pluses that have made it the engine of choice for numerous script-powered software applications, among them Joomla and Magento, which have shifted over to InnoDB for good. For instance, adding enormous data volumes will be faster with InnoDB, since it locks only a single row to complete a certain operation, not the entire database table, which makes the engine excellent for scalable applications. InnoDB also supports foreign keys and transactions – these refer to the manner in which the data is tackled. Put simply, appending new or modifying existing data will either be thoroughly completed, or will be annulled and the procedure will be rolled back in case a given problem occurs during the process, which means that the content that remains in the database won’t be lost.

InnoDB in Web Hosting

While InnoDB is either not offered or it is a paid upgrade with other website hosting service providers, it is part of the standard set of features that we are offering with our web hosting packages.

No matter if you create a brand-new MySQL database and activate an application manually or take advantage of our 1-click app installer instrument, InnoDB will be selected automatically by our platform as the default engine if the particular application requires InnoDB instead of MyISAM. In addition to the incredible crash recovery offered by InnoDB, we also store regular backups of all databases, so we can swiftly recover any database in your shared website hosting account.
