A web accelerator is a program that speeds up an Internet site, typically by caching its content. There are many types of accelerators, but in the common case this kind of applications cache static content or database responses and supply them instead of the web server, therefore increasing the performance of a website considerably. The latter is achievable because accelerator programs work faster than a hosting server and not simply will a website function better, but the server load shall also lessen, which will allow you to run heavy Internet sites with less system resources. We offer 3 web accelerators with our hosting packages, which will enable you to accelerate any sort of website. In comparison, most web hosting companies don't offer any web accelerators or provide just one, which limits your choice of web applications in case you would like to employ such software.

Web Accelerators in Cloud Web Hosting

In case you host your websites in a cloud web hosting account from our company, you will have three popular web accelerators to select from if you would like to boost the sites' performance. Memcached is used for database-driven Internet sites and it caches the calls and requests between a website and its database, so it could minimize the load of such sites substantially. Varnish caches whole pages the first time a visitor opens them and delivers them from there on if the same site visitor opens them again. It does that much faster than the web server, so it could raise the loading speed of any site nearly 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time applications which works on the web server and not within the visitor's world-wide web browser. It is used for holiday accommodation booking, chats and other applications where loads of data needs to be processed in real time. The availability of the accelerators depends on the hosting plan that 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 one of them.
