A web accelerator is an application which accelerates a website, normally by caching its content. There are many types of accelerators, but in the typical case this kind of applications cache static content or database responses and supply them instead of the hosting server, hence enhancing the performance of a website noticeably. The latter can be done because accelerator applications work faster than a web server and not only will a website function better, but the server load shall also lessen, which will allow you to run heavy sites with less resources. We provide 3 web accelerators with our hosting packages, which will enable you to increase the speed of any sort of Internet site. In comparison, most hosting firms do not provide any web accelerators or provide only one, which limits your choice of web apps in case you'd like to use this type of software.
Web Accelerators in Cloud Hosting
If you host your Internet sites inside a cloud hosting
account from us, you will have three popular web accelerators to pick from if you'd like to enhance the sites' efficiency. Memcached is used for database-driven Internet sites and it caches the calls and requests between a website and its database, so it can reduce the load of such websites substantially. Varnish caches entire web pages the first time a website visitor opens them and delivers them from there on if the same website visitor opens them again. It does that considerably faster 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 that works on the hosting server and not within the visitor's web browser. It is employed for accommodation booking, chats and other apps where loads of data has to be processed in real time. The availability of those accelerators depends upon the hosting plan which you select - they could come by default or as an upgrade. In both cases, you will be able to add more instances or more memory for each of them.
