A web accelerator is a software which quickens a website, normally by caching its content. There are different sorts of accelerators, but in the common case this kind of apps cache static content or database responses and provide them in place of the server, hence boosting the performance of a website noticeably. The latter is possible because accelerator applications work faster than a server and not simply will a site operate better, but the server load shall also lessen, which will allow you to run heavy sites with less resources. We provide 3 web accelerators with our hosting packages, which will enable you to increase the speed of any type of Internet site. In comparison, most website hosting providers do not offer any web accelerators or offer only 1, which limits your choice of web apps if you'd like to employ this kind of software.
Web Accelerators in Shared Website Hosting
When you host your websites in a shared website hosting
account from us, you'll have 3 popular web accelerators to pick from if you would like to enhance the sites' performance. Memcached is used for database-driven sites and it caches the calls and requests between an Internet site and its database, so it could decrease the load of such websites substantially. Varnish caches whole webpages the first time a visitor opens them and delivers them from there on if the same site visitor opens them again. It does that faster than the hosting server, so it can easily raise the loading speed of any site as much as 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time applications which works on the hosting server and not in the visitor's browser. It is used for accommodation booking, chats and other programs where plenty of data should be processed in real time. The availability of those accelerators depends on the hosting solution that you select - they may 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.
