A web accelerator is a software which accelerates a website, typically by caching its content. There are various sorts of accelerators, but in the common case such applications cache static content or database responses and deliver them instead of the web server, thus boosting the performance of an Internet site drastically. The latter is possible because accelerator apps work faster than a server and not only will a site work better, but the server load shall also minimize, which will enable you to run heavy websites with less resources. We offer 3 web accelerators with our hosting solutions, which will enable you to increase the speed of any type of site. In comparison, most hosting providers don't offer any web accelerators or offer only 1, which limits your choice of web applications in case you want to employ this kind of software.

Web Accelerators in Web Hosting

If you host your sites in a web hosting account from our firm, you'll have 3 popular web accelerators to select from if you would like to boost the sites' efficiency. Memcached is employed for database-driven Internet sites and it caches the calls and requests between an Internet site and its database, so it could lessen the load of such sites drastically. Varnish caches entire webpages the first time a website visitor opens them and delivers them from there on if the same visitor opens them again. It does that much faster than the web server, so it can easily boost the loading speed of any Internet site nearly 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time programs that functions on the server and not in the visitor's world-wide web browser. It is used for accommodation booking, chats and other programs where a lot of data should be processed in real time. The availability of those accelerators depends upon the hosting package which you choose - they may come by default or as an upgrade. In each case, you will be able to add more instances or more memory for each one of them.
