A web accelerator is an application that accelerates a website, normally by caching its content. There are many sorts of accelerators, but in the common case this kind of programs cache static content or database responses and supply them in lieu of the web server, therefore boosting the performance of an Internet site significantly. The latter is possible because accelerator programs work faster than a server and not simply will a website function better, but the server load will also minimize, which will enable you to run heavy Internet sites with less resources. We provide three web accelerators with our hosting solutions, which will permit you to accelerate any kind of site. In comparison, most hosting providers do not offer any web accelerators or provide only 1, which limits your choice of web applications if you want to use such software.
Web Accelerators in Shared Web Hosting
When you host your sites within a shared web hosting account from our firm, you shall have three 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 a website and its database, so it could reduce the load of such websites drastically. Varnish caches whole web pages the first time a site visitor opens them and provides them from there on if the same guest opens them again. It does that faster than the web server, so it can easily increase the loading speed of any site up to 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time applications which functions on the hosting server and not within the visitor's browser. It's employed for holiday accommodation booking, chats and other apps where plenty of data should be processed in real time. The availability of these accelerators depends upon the hosting plan which you select - they might come by default or as an upgrade. In each case, you will be able to include more instances or more memory for each of them.
