A web accelerator is a server-side program that accelerates an Internet site. Such a piece of software can function in different ways depending upon the site content, but in the general case all such programs cache content and deliver it instead of the web server. That is valid for both dynamic and static websites because the cached content may be simple text or database responses and the advantage of using a web accelerator isn't simply the faster loading site, but also the smaller overall load on the web server. That way, you could use a lower-end hosting package that will also cost less while your site visitors will be able to still enjoy fast browsing speeds. Handful of businesses offer web accelerators with their hosting plans and they typically offer just 1, while we offer three different ones that will permit you to enhance the performance of any type of website noticeably.

Web Accelerators in Cloud Hosting

If you host your websites inside a cloud hosting account from our company, you'll have three popular web accelerators to select from if you'd like to boost the sites' performance. Memcached is employed for database-driven sites and it caches the calls and requests between an Internet site and its database, so it could lessen the load of such sites drastically. Varnish caches entire pages the first time a visitor opens them and provides them from there on if the same guest opens them again. It does that much faster than the web server, so it can easily increase the loading speed of any site nearly 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time apps which operates on the server and not in the visitor's world-wide web browser. It's employed for holiday accommodation booking, chats and other apps where loads of data should be processed in real time. The availability of those accelerators depends on the hosting plan which you select - they may come by default or as an upgrade. In each case, you shall be able to add more instances or more memory for each one of them.
