A web accelerator is a server-side program which speeds up a website. Such a piece of software may work in different ways depending on the website content, but in the typical situation all such apps cache content and deliver it instead of the hosting server. That's valid for both dynamic and static websites because the cached content may be simple text or database responses and the reward of employing a web accelerator is not just the faster loading site, but also the lessened overall load on the machine. That way, you can employ a lower-end hosting solution which will also cost less while your site visitors could still enjoy fast browsing speeds. Handful of businesses offer web accelerators with their hosting plans and they typically offer just one, while we offer 3 different ones that will allow you to improve the performance of any kind of site considerably.
Web Accelerators in Hosting
If you host your sites within a hosting account from us, you shall have 3 popular web accelerators to select from if you would like to improve the sites' performance. Memcached is used for database-driven sites and it caches the calls and requests between a site and its database, so it can easily minimize the load of such Internet sites substantially. Varnish caches whole webpages the first time a website visitor opens them and provides them from there on if the same website visitor opens them again. It does that much faster than the web server, so it could raise the loading speed of any website up to 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time applications that works on the web server and not within the visitor's browser. It is employed for holiday accommodation booking, chats and other programs where lots of data should be processed in real time. The availability of these accelerators depends on the hosting plan that you choose - they could come by default or as an upgrade. In both cases, you'll be able to add more instances or more memory for each of them.
