InnoDB is a MySQL database engine, which has been gaining popularity in recent years, because it provides a significantly better overall performance and a faster database failure recovery compared with the default engine used by the MySQL RDBMS – MyISAM. InnoDB is preferred by a lot of programmers that run scalable applications, since it works better with immense volumes of data, while it keeps the server load at a minimum. What’s more, it locks only a single row in the database if anything should be modified, whereas many other engines lock the entire database table and thus need much more time to execute several sequential tasks. Last, but not least, InnoDB adheres to the "all-or-nothing" rule – in case the entire data modification cannot be completed for some reason, the action is rolled back to avoid confusion or data loss. Magento and the latest Joomla editions are two instances of popular PHP script-powered applications which have switched over to InnoDB.

InnoDB in Cloud Web Hosting

While InnoDB is either not available or a paid upgrade with many web hosts, it is part of the default set of services that we offer with our cloud web hosting plans. If you wish to make use of a PHP-driven web application that requires InnoDB particularly, in order to be installed and to work correctly, you will not have any impediments since the InnoDB database storage engine is available on our in-house developed cloud hosting platform. Regardless of whether you set up a brand new database and activate an app manually or use our 1-click application installer tool, InnoDB will be selected automatically by our system as the default engine if the particular application needs InnoDB instead of MyISAM. In addition to the exceptional database failure recovery that InnoDB is offering, we also carry out regular backups of all databases, so we can quickly restore any MySQL database in your shared hosting account.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting

InnoDB is available with all our Linux semi-dedicated hosting by default, so as soon as you buy a new semi-dedicated account, you can move on and activate any PHP-based software application that needs this particular MySQL storage engine.
