A web accelerator is a piece of software which accelerates a site usually by caching content and supplying it instead of the server. Such apps may be used for both static and dynamic websites since there are a variety of accelerators that can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The benefit of employing a web accelerator is that a given site shall perform considerably faster without employing additional system resources. Just the opposite, this kind of a site will need a lesser amount of resources to work because the web accelerator will deal with most requests rather than the web server. Unlike many firms which don't offer web accelerators with their plans or offer only 1, we offer 3 different ones which will allow you to speed up your websites whatever their type or content.

Web Accelerators in Shared Website Hosting

If you host your sites inside a shared website hosting account from us, you'll have three popular web accelerators to select from if you would like to enhance the sites' efficiency. Memcached is employed for database-driven sites and it caches the calls and requests between a site and its database, so it can easily reduce the load of such websites substantially. Varnish caches entire 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 faster than the hosting server, so it can easily increase the loading speed of any site nearly 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time applications which functions on the web server and not in the visitor's world-wide web browser. It's employed for accommodation booking, chats and other apps where plenty of data should be processed in real time. The availability of the accelerators depends on the hosting plan which you select - they might come by default or as an upgrade. In both cases, you shall be able to add more instances or more memory for every one of them.
