Advanced Features

The Advanced tab gives you quick access to a set of advanced tools, among them the Memcached memory caching system and the Varnish Cache web accelerator, which will help you optimize your web sites and apps without needing to log out of the web hosting Control Panel. Based on the website hosting plan, these tools are either added by default or are available in the form of easy-to-get upgrades. InnoDB and NodeJS support is available too.

Varnish

Varnish Cache is a web application accelerator also popular as a caching HTTP reverse proxy. You can install it in front of any web server that speaks HTTP and configure it to cache the contents. Varnish Cache is very, very fast and will make your site load much faster. One of the main advantages of Varnish Cache is the flexibility of its principal configuration mechanism, VCL, which enables you to define how incoming requests should be tackled.

Memcached

Memcached is a generic distributed memory caching system for boosting the speed of dynamic database-powered web sites. It is used to lower 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 system uses a client’server architecture. The Memcached distributed memory object caching system is used by some of the most regularly visited sites on the World Wide Web and is supported by popular CMSs like Joomla and WordPress.

Node.js

Node.js is a software system for building scalable Internet applications. Written in JavaScript, Node.js uses an event-based, non-blocking input/output model that makes it lightweight and efficient, excellent for real-time content-intensive apps. Node.js uses Google’s V8 JavaScript engine, libUV, and several in-built libraries.

InnoDB

InnoDB is the default database engine for the MySQL open-source RDBMS. A storage engine is the primary software component that a DBMS uses to create, retrieve, modify and delete data from a database. Its latest version features serious improvements in efficacy, dependability and functionality. InnoDB offers the standard ACID database transaction properties, along with foreign key support. InnoDB is included by default in most binaries distributed by MySQL AB.
