A web accelerator is a software application that speeds up a website usually by caching content and delivering it instead of the hosting server. Such programs could be used for both static and dynamic sites since there are various accelerators which can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The benefit of employing a web accelerator is that a given site shall perform significantly faster without employing additional system resources. Quite the opposite, this kind of a site will need significantly less resources to work as the web accelerator will take care of most requests instead of the server. Contrary to many businesses which do not offer web accelerators with their plans or offer only 1, we offer 3 different ones that will allow you to speed up your Internet sites regardless of their style or content.
Web Accelerators in Cloud Hosting
If you host your Internet sites in a cloud hosting account from us, you shall have three popular web accelerators to pick from if you'd like to boost the sites' functionality. Memcached is used for database-driven websites and it caches the calls and requests between an Internet site and its database, so it can reduce the load of such sites considerably. Varnish caches whole webpages the first time a site visitor opens them and provides them from there on if the same visitor opens them again. It does that faster than the hosting server, so it could boost the loading speed of any website approximately 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time apps that operates on the server and not within the visitor's web browser. It is used for holiday accommodation booking, chats and other applications where loads of data should be processed in real time. The availability of the accelerators depends upon the hosting solution which you pick - they could come by default or as an upgrade. In both cases, you will be able to add more instances or more memory for every one of them.
