InnoDB is a very popular database storage engine for MySQL. It is an alternative to the default engine – MyISAM, and it has got a lot of advantages that have made it the preferred engine for many open-source script-based web applications, such as Joomla™ and Magento, which have moved to InnoDB for good. For instance, importing large amounts of data will be faster with InnoDB, because it locks only a single database row to complete an operation, not the entire table, which makes the engine excellent for scalable apps. InnoDB also supports foreign keys and transactions – these refer to the manner in which the data is tackled. Simply put, adding new or editing existent data will either be fully completed, or will be canceled and the procedure will be rolled back in case any problem appears during the process, which means that the content that remains in the database won’t be damaged.
InnoDB in Shared Website Hosting
While InnoDB is either not available or a paid upgrade with other website hosting service providers, it is included in the standard set of features that we’re offering with our shared website hosting
packages. If you would like to make use of a PHP script-based software app that requires InnoDB specifically, in order to be activated and to operate correctly, you won’t have to deal with any impediments because the MySQL storage engine is available on our in-house developed cloud website hosting platform. Irrespective of whether you create a brand new database and activate an app manually or take advantage of our single-click app installer software tool, InnoDB will be selected automatically by our platform as the default engine if the specific app requires InnoDB instead of MyISAM.

plans and you begin installing a PHP script-driven software application either manually or using our single-click application installer, the storage engine for the MySQL database will be picked automatically based on the specific app’s requirements.
