The Advanced tab gives you fast access to an array of advanced features, among them the Memcached memory caching system and the Varnish Cache web accelerator, which will help you optimize your web sites and applications without having to move away from the web hosting Control Panel. Depending on the hosting package, these features are either added by default or are offered in the form of easy-to-get upgrades. InnoDB and NodeJS support is available as well.
Varnish Cache is a web accelerator also popular as a caching HTTP reverse proxy. You can install it in front of any server that speaks HTTP and configure it to cache the contents. Varnish Cache is very, very fast and will boost your site's loading speed. One of the key attributes of Varnish Cache is the flexibility of its principal configuration mechanism, VCL, which permits you to define how incoming requests should be tackled.
Memcached is a generic memory caching system for boosting the load speed of dynamic database-powered websites. It is used to reduce the number of times an external data source (such as a DB or API) is read by caching data and objects in RAM. The Memcached distributed memory caching system uses a client'server architecture. The Memcached memory caching system is used by some of the most traffic-intensive sites on the Internet and is supported by popular web apps like Joomla and WordPress.
InnoDB is the default database engine for the MySQL open-source relational database management system. A storage engine is the main software component that a DBMS uses to create, retrieve, modify and delete data from a database. Its latest release offers substantial improvements in efficiency, reliability and usability. InnoDB offers the standard ACID database transaction properties, along with referential integrity support. It is included as standard in most binaries distributed by MySQL AB.
