InnoDB is a database engine for MySQL databases, which is used by famous PHP-based software apps such as Magento and Joomla 3.x. It’s excellent for scalable applications, as it performs really well when managing large amounts of data. Instead of locking the whole database table to append new information to a database as many other engines do, InnoDB locks only one row, so it can execute much more tasks for the same period of time. Additionally, InnoDB offers a faster crash recovery and supports database transactions and foreign keys – a set of rules that determine how data imports and modifications should be handled. If a particular task hasn’t been entirely completed for whatever reason, the action will be rolled back. Thus, the database content will stay safe and sound and will not be partially mixed with newly entered content.

InnoDB is available with all our shared web hosting services by default, not upon request or as a paid upgrade, so you will be able to activate and run any script-powered web app that requires the database engine without the need to deal with any complication once you activate your shared web hosting account. InnoDB will be selected automatically as the default engine for a particular MySQL database during the app installation, irrespective of whether you take advantage of our 1-click installer or create the database and install the app manually, on the condition that the application requires it instead of the more famous MyISAM engine. We’ll create daily backups of all your databases, so you can rest assured that you’ll never lose any content in case you erase a database by mistake or you overwrite some key info – you will simply need to touch base with us and we’ll restore the database back to normal.
