A web accelerator is a software application which speeds up an Internet site typically by caching content and providing it instead of the server. Such apps may be used for both static and dynamic websites as there are a variety of accelerators which can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The benefit of using a web accelerator is that a given Internet site will perform considerably faster without using more system resources. On the contrary, such a website will require a lesser amount of resources to operate because the web accelerator will deal with most requests instead of the web server. Contrary to many firms that do not offer web accelerators with their packages or offer only one, we offer 3 different ones that will permit you to speed up your websites irrespective of their kind or content.

Web Accelerators in Website Hosting

If you host your Internet sites inside a website hosting account from us, you'll have 3 popular web accelerators to choose from if you'd like to enhance the sites' functionality. Memcached is employed for database-driven websites and it caches the calls and requests between a website and its database, so it can minimize the load of such websites significantly. Varnish caches entire pages the first time a 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 raise the loading speed of any Internet site approximately 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time applications which operates on the server and not within the visitor's web browser. It's employed for accommodation booking, chats and other applications where loads of data has to be processed in real time. The availability of those accelerators depends on the hosting solution that you choose - they might come by default or as an upgrade. In each case, you will be able to add more instances or more memory for every one of them.
