A web accelerator is a server-side application that speeds up a site. Such a piece of software can work in different ways depending upon the website content, but in the typical situation 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 may be simple text or database responses and the advantage of using a web accelerator isn't simply the faster loading Internet site, but also the decreased overall load on the machine. This way, you'll be able to use a lower-end hosting plan that'll also cost less while your visitors can still enjoy high browsing speeds. Few service providers provide web accelerators with their hosting packages and they usually offer just one, while we offer three different ones that will allow you to improve the performance of any sort of Internet site significantly.

Web Accelerators in Shared Website Hosting

If you host your sites inside a shared website hosting account from our firm, you'll have three popular web accelerators to pick from if you'd like to boost the sites' performance. Memcached is used 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 tremendously. Varnish caches entire 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 considerably faster than the hosting server, so it can easily raise the loading speed of any Internet site up to 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time applications that operates on the hosting server and not within the visitor's world-wide web browser. It's employed for accommodation booking, chats and other programs where a lot of data has to be processed in real time. The availability of those accelerators depends upon the hosting solution that you pick - 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.
