A web accelerator is an application which speeds up a site, usually by caching its content. There are many kinds of accelerators, but in the general case this sort of programs cache static content or database responses and provide them in place of the server, as a consequence improving the performance of a site drastically. The latter can be done because accelerator applications work faster than a hosting server and not only will a website work better, but the server load shall also lessen, which will permit you to run heavy websites with less system resources. We offer 3 web accelerators with our hosting solutions, which will allow you to speed up any type of website. In comparison, most hosting businesses do not provide any web accelerators or offer only 1, which limits your choice of web applications in case you want to employ this type of software.

Web Accelerators in Cloud Website Hosting

If you host your sites within a cloud website hosting account from our company, you will have three popular web accelerators to pick from if you'd like to boost the sites' performance. Memcached is employed for database-driven websites and it caches the calls and requests between an Internet site and its database, so it can lessen the load of such sites considerably. Varnish caches entire webpages the first time a website visitor opens them and provides them from there on if the same site visitor opens them again. It does that considerably faster than the web server, so it can easily raise the loading speed of any website as much as 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time apps which operates on the hosting server and not within the visitor's Internet browser. It's employed for accommodation booking, chats and other applications where loads of data needs to be processed in real time. The availability of these accelerators depends on the hosting solution that you pick - they might come by default or as an upgrade. In both cases, you will be able to add more instances or more memory for each of them.
