A web accelerator is a server-side program which speeds up an Internet site. Such a piece of software could operate in different ways depending upon the site content, but in the typical case all such programs cache content and deliver it instead of the hosting server. That is valid for both static and dynamic sites since the cached content could be simple text or database responses and the advantage of employing a web accelerator is not simply the faster loading site, but also the minimized overall load on the hosting server. This way, you'll be able to employ a lower-end hosting plan which will also cost less while your visitors could still enjoy superior browsing speeds. Handful of service providers offer web accelerators with their hosting plans and they usually offer just one, while we offer three different ones that will enable you to enhance the performance of any kind of website substantially.

Web Accelerators in Cloud Hosting

When you host your sites in a cloud hosting account from our company, you'll have 3 popular web accelerators to pick from if you would like to improve 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 could minimize the load of such websites tremendously. Varnish caches entire web pages the first time a website visitor opens them and provides them from there on if the same site visitor opens them again. It does that much more quickly than the web server, so it can raise the loading speed of any website nearly 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time programs which operates on the server and not in the visitor's world-wide web browser. It is employed for holiday accommodation booking, chats and other applications where a lot of data has to be processed in real time. The availability of the accelerators depends on the hosting package which you select - they could come by default or as an upgrade. In each case, you shall be able to include more instances or more memory for each of them.
