InnoDB is a popular storage engine for the MySQL database management system. It’s an alternative to the default engine – MyISAM, and it has numerous upsides that have made it the engine of choice for plenty of PHP script-driven applications, including Joomla and Magento, which have switched over to InnoDB for good. For instance, adding large volumes of data will be much faster with InnoDB, because it locks only one database row to execute a certain task, not the entire table, which makes the engine excellent for scalable apps. It also supports foreign keys and transactions – these refer to the manner in which the info is treated. In simpler words, importing new or editing existent data will either be entirely completed, or will be annulled and the procedure will be rolled back in case a certain problem occurs during the process, which means that the content that remains in the database will not be damaged.

Any script-based software app that needs InnoDB will function flawlessly on our avant-garde cloud hosting platform and the storage engine comes with all our shared hosting packages.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Servers

InnoDB comes with each of our semi-dedicated plans by default, so the moment you get a new account, you can go on and activate any open-source script-powered application that requires this MySQL database storage engine. Several engines are installed on our cloud platform, so when you set up a brand new database and begin installing an app manually, or opt to take advantage of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel-integrated application installer, the engine for the database will be selected on the basis of the prerequisites of the given application. This will allow you to install and run InnoDB-specific applications without the need to deal with any impediment and without the need to modify any settings in your semi-dedicated account.
