A web accelerator is a server-side application which speeds up a site. Such a piece of software can function in different ways depending on the site content, but in the general case all such applications cache content and deliver it instead of the web server. That is valid for both dynamic and static Internet sites as the cached content can be simple text or database responses and the reward of using a web accelerator is not just the faster loading website, but also the decreased overall load on the hosting server. That way, you'll be able to employ a lower-end hosting plan that will also cost less while your site visitors could still enjoy fast browsing speeds. Several firms offer web accelerators with their hosting packages and they often offer just one, while we offer three different ones that will permit you to boost the performance of any kind of site considerably.

Web Accelerators in Web Hosting

Our web hosting solutions come with 3 web accelerators which you could employ depending on the sites that you would like to run. Memcached is used to cache database or API calls and responses, which could tremendously boost the functionality of dynamic sites. Varnish is a popular HTTP accelerator which caches webpages and provides them to the website visitors considerably faster than the server after the first time they open them. Node.js is an event-driven platform employed for scalable real-time applications such as booking sites. With respect to the web hosting package you choose, these 3 applications may already be included or could be optional upgrades. Regardless, you shall be able to choose how many instances of every one of them shall be at your disposal and how much memory they should use. These accelerators are offered only by several web hosting firms, including ours, and they can easily increase the speed of your web applications substantially.
