A web accelerator is a server-side program that quickens a website. Such a piece of software may function in different ways based on the website content, but in the general situation all such programs cache content and deliver it instead of the server. That's valid for both dynamic and static websites since the cached content can be simple text or database responses and the reward of employing a web accelerator is not only the faster loading site, but also the reduced overall load on the hosting server. This way, you could employ a lower-end hosting package which will also cost less while your visitors will be able to still enjoy high browsing speeds. Several firms provide web accelerators with their hosting packages and they often offer only 1, while we offer three different ones that'll permit you to boost the performance of any kind of website noticeably.

Web Accelerators in Cloud Hosting

If you host your sites inside a cloud hosting account from us, you shall have 3 popular web accelerators to select from if you'd like to boost the sites' efficiency. Memcached is used for database-driven sites and it caches the calls and requests between a site and its database, so it can easily lessen the load of such sites significantly. Varnish caches whole webpages the first time a site visitor opens them and delivers them from there on if the same visitor opens them again. It does that considerably faster than the hosting server, so it can raise the loading speed of any website approximately 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time programs that operates on the server and not within the visitor's browser. It's employed for accommodation booking, chats and other applications where a lot of data should be processed in real time. The availability of those accelerators depends on the hosting plan that you choose - they could come by default or as an upgrade. In both cases, you will be able to include more instances or more memory for every one of them.
