A web accelerator is an application which accelerates a website, usually by caching its content. There are many types of accelerators, but in the common case such applications cache static content or database responses and supply them instead of the hosting server, as a consequence enhancing the performance of an Internet site drastically. The latter is achievable because accelerator apps work faster than a hosting server and not only will a site function better, but the server load shall also decrease, which will permit you to run heavy websites with less resources. We provide three web accelerators with our hosting plans, which will permit you to accelerate any kind of site. In comparison, most hosting companies don't offer any web accelerators or offer one, which limits your choice of web applications in case you'd like to use this type of software.
Web Accelerators in Shared Web Hosting
If you host your sites within a shared web hosting account from our firm, you will have 3 popular web accelerators to select from if you'd like to enhance the sites' functionality. Memcached is employed for database-driven Internet sites and it caches the calls and requests between an Internet site and its database, so it can easily decrease the load of such Internet sites considerably. Varnish caches entire web pages the first time a website visitor opens them and provides them from there on if the same visitor opens them again. It does that much more quickly than the hosting server, so it could increase the loading speed of any Internet site nearly 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time applications that operates on the server and not inside the visitor's browser. It is used for holiday accommodation booking, chats and other apps where loads of data has to be processed in real time. The availability of these accelerators depends upon the hosting plan that you select - they might come by default or as an upgrade. In both cases, you shall be able to add more instances or more memory for each one of them.
