A web accelerator is a server-side application which speeds up an Internet site. Such a piece of software could function in different ways depending on the site content, but in the typical case all such apps cache content and deliver it instead of the hosting server. That is valid for both static and dynamic websites because the cached content may be simple text or database responses and the reward of employing a web accelerator isn't only the faster loading site, but also the smaller overall load on the hosting server. This way, you could use a lower-end hosting package which will also cost less while your site visitors can still enjoy superior browsing speeds. Few service providers provide web accelerators with their hosting plans and they usually offer just 1, while we offer 3 different ones that'll permit you to enhance the performance of any type of site substantially.

Web Accelerators in Cloud Hosting

When you host your websites within a cloud hosting account from our company, you'll have three popular web accelerators to choose from if you would like to improve the sites' efficiency. Memcached is used for database-driven websites and it caches the calls and requests between an Internet site and its database, so it could minimize the load of such Internet sites drastically. Varnish caches entire pages the first time a visitor opens them and delivers them from there on if the same visitor opens them again. It does that considerably faster than the web server, so it can easily increase the loading speed of any website approximately 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time applications that works on the hosting server and not inside the visitor's web browser. It is employed for holiday accommodation booking, chats and other programs where a lot of data should be processed in real time. The availability of these accelerators depends upon the hosting package which you pick - 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 of them.
