A web accelerator is an application that accelerates a website, typically by caching its content. There are different sorts of accelerators, but in the common case this kind of applications cache static content or database responses and deliver them instead of the hosting server, hence increasing the performance of a site noticeably. 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 enable you to run heavy Internet sites with less system resources. We provide three web accelerators with our hosting plans, which will permit you to accelerate any kind of Internet site. In comparison, most Internet hosting companies do not provide any web accelerators or offer only 1, which limits your choice of web applications in the event that you would like to employ this kind of software.
Web Accelerators in Shared Web Hosting
Our shared web hosting solutions come with three web accelerators which you could use depending on the sites which you'd like to run. Memcached is employed to cache database or API calls and responses, which can tremendously improve the efficiency of dynamic sites. Varnish is a popular HTTP accelerator that caches pages and provides them to the visitors considerably quicker than the server after the first time they open them. Node.js is an event-driven platform used for scalable real-time apps including booking sites. Depending upon the hosting package you pick, these three applications could already be included or might be optional upgrades. Either way, you'll be able to choose how many instances of each one of them will be at your disposal and what amount of memory they should use. These accelerators are provided only by several hosting service providers, including ours, and they can easily increase the speed of your web programs significantly.
