A web accelerator is a server-side program which accelerates an Internet site. Such a piece of software could function in different ways depending upon the website content, but in the typical situation all such apps cache content and deliver it instead of the hosting server. That is valid for both dynamic and static Internet sites since the cached content could be simple text or database responses and the benefit of employing a web accelerator isn't just the faster loading website, but also the decreased overall load on the hosting server. This way, you could employ a lower-end hosting plan which will also cost less while your visitors could still enjoy fast browsing speeds. Several companies supply web accelerators with their hosting deals and they typically offer only one, while we offer 3 different ones which will permit you to boost the performance of any kind of Internet site tremendously.

Web Accelerators in Web Hosting

When 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 enhance the sites' functionality. Memcached is used for database-driven websites and it caches the calls and requests between an Internet site and its database, so it can decrease the load of such sites tremendously. Varnish caches whole webpages the first time a site visitor opens them and provides them from there on if the same visitor opens them again. It does that much faster than the hosting server, so it can raise the loading speed of any website up to 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time apps which works on the web server and not inside the visitor's browser. It's employed for accommodation booking, chats and other programs where loads of data should be processed in real time. The availability of those accelerators depends upon the hosting plan which you choose - they may come by default or as an upgrade. In each case, you will be able to include more instances or more memory for each one of them.
