A web accelerator is a server-side application that speeds up an Internet site. Such a piece of software can function in different ways depending on the site content, but in the general case all such programs cache content and deliver it instead of the web server. That's valid for both dynamic and static websites because the cached content may be simple text or database responses and the benefit of using a web accelerator isn't simply the faster loading Internet site, but also the reduced overall load on the web server. This way, you may employ a lower-end hosting solution which will also cost less while your visitors could still enjoy fast browsing speeds. Few businesses provide web accelerators with their hosting deals and they frequently offer only one, while we offer 3 different ones which will enable you to boost the performance of any kind of site considerably.

Web Accelerators in Website Hosting

If you host your Internet sites within a website hosting account from our company, you will have three popular web accelerators to choose from if you'd like to improve the sites' performance. Memcached is used for database-driven websites and it caches the calls and requests between a website and its database, so it can easily lessen the load of such Internet sites substantially. 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 more quickly than the server, so it could increase the loading speed of any site nearly 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time programs that operates on the web server and not in the visitor's Internet browser. It is employed for accommodation booking, chats and other apps where lots of data should be processed in real time. The availability of the accelerators depends on the hosting package that you select - they could come by default or as an upgrade. In each case, you'll be able to add more instances or more memory for each one of them.
