A web accelerator is an application which accelerates a site, usually by caching its content. There are many types of accelerators, but in the typical case this sort of applications cache static content or database responses and deliver them instead of the hosting server, thus boosting the performance of a site significantly. The latter is possible because accelerator applications work faster than a web server and not simply will an Internet site function better, but the server load shall also minimize, which will enable you to run heavy websites with less system resources. We provide 3 web accelerators with our hosting solutions, which will allow you to accelerate any type of Internet site. In comparison, most Internet hosting service providers don't provide any web accelerators or offer only one, which limits your choice of web apps in the event that you want to employ this type of software.

Web Accelerators in Hosting

When you host your sites in a hosting account from us, you will have three popular web accelerators to select from if you'd like to boost the sites' performance. Memcached is employed for database-driven websites and it caches the calls and requests between a website and its database, so it could minimize the load of such sites substantially. Varnish caches whole pages the first time a site visitor opens them and provides them from there on if the same guest opens them again. It does that much more quickly than the hosting server, so it could raise the loading speed of any website up to 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time programs that works on the web server and not in the visitor's browser. It is used for holiday accommodation booking, chats and other programs where loads of data should be processed in real time. The availability of those accelerators depends on the hosting package which you select - they might come by default or as an upgrade. In each case, you shall be able to include more instances or more memory for each one of them.
