The Advanced tab gives you swift access to a set of advanced features, among them the Memcached memory caching system and the Varnish Cache web accelerator, which will help you optimize your websites and applications without having to log out of the web hosting Control Panel. Depending on the web hosting package, these features are either added by default or are available in the form of easy-to-get upgrades. InnoDB and NodeJS support is available too.
Varnish Cache is a web accelerator also referred to as a caching HTTP reverse proxy. You can install it in front of any server that speaks the HTTP protocol and configure it to cache the contents. Varnish Cache is really, really fast and will make your web site load much faster. One of the chief strengths of Varnish Cache is the flexibility of its domain-specific language, VCL, which enables you to specify how incoming requests should be dealt with.
Memcached is a general-purpose memory caching system for speeding up dynamic database-driven websites. It is used to decrease the number of times an external data source (such as a database or API) is read by caching data and objects in RAM. The Memcached system uses a two-tier architecture. The Memcached distributed memory object caching system is employed by some of the most traffic-heavy websites on the web and is supported by famous web applications like Joomla and WordPress.
InnoDB is the default storage engine for the MySQL open-source relational database management system. A storage engine is the underlying software component that a database management system uses to create, retrieve, modify and delete data from a database. Its latest edition offers significant improvements in efficacy, security and functionality. InnoDB offers the standard ACID transaction properties, as well as declarative referential integrity support. It is included by default in most binary distributions from MySQL AB.
