InnoDB is a very popular storage engine for MySQL. It’s an alternative to the default engine – MyISAM, and it has got lots of strong sides which make it the preferred engine for a lot of script-based apps, including Magento and Joomla, which have shifted over to InnoDB for good. For instance, importing large data volumes will be faster with InnoDB, because it locks only one row to accomplish a certain task, not the entire table, which makes the engine perfect for scalable apps. InnoDB also supports foreign keys and database transactions – these refer to the way in which the data is treated. In simpler words, importing new or updating existent data will either be fully completed, or will be canceled and the procedure will be rolled back if a certain issue shows up during the process, thus the content that remains in the database will not be lost.

Every script-driven app that requires InnoDB will run flawlessly on our advanced cloud website hosting platform and the MySQL database storage engine is available with all our cloud website hosting plans. Each time you create a database manually or our app installer tool creates one automatically and an app installation is started, the engine that the database will use will be selected in accordance with the app’s requirements without having to edit any setting in your account. InnoDB will be picked automatically for any application that requires this particular engine and you’ll be able to get the most out of its full capacity. We will maintain regular content backups, so if you accidentally remove a MySQL database that is important to you or you overwrite specific parts of it, we will be able to restore your content the way it was just several hours ago.

The needed engine will be recognized automatically and will be assigned to that database, so you can activate scripts that require InnoDB, as well as ones that need MyISAM, the default MySQL engine, without any problems.
