A web accelerator is a server-side app which accelerates a site. Such a piece of software can function in different ways based on the website content, but in the general case all such applications cache content and deliver it instead of the hosting server. That's valid for both dynamic and static Internet sites because the cached content can be simple text or database responses and the reward of using a web accelerator is not only the faster loading Internet site, but also the decreased overall load on the machine. That way, you could use a lower-end hosting package that'll also cost less while your website visitors could still enjoy superior browsing speeds. Few companies offer web accelerators with their hosting plans and they usually offer just 1, while we offer 3 different ones which will allow you to enhance the performance of any type of website considerably.

Web Accelerators in Web Hosting

If you host your Internet sites inside a web hosting account from us, you'll have three popular web accelerators to select from if you'd like to boost the sites' efficiency. Memcached is employed for database-driven 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 substantially. Varnish caches whole webpages the first time a website visitor opens them and provides them from there on if the same guest opens them again. It does that much more quickly than the web server, so it can increase the loading speed of any website approximately 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time apps which operates on the web server and not inside the visitor's Internet browser. It's employed for holiday accommodation booking, chats and other apps where loads of data needs to be processed in real time. The availability of those accelerators depends upon the hosting plan that you choose - they could come by default or as an upgrade. In each case, you'll be able to add more instances or more memory for each of them.
