A web accelerator is a software that accelerates a site, typically by caching its content. There are many kinds of accelerators, but in the general case this kind of applications cache static content or database responses and provide them in lieu of the server, therefore increasing the performance of a website greatly. The latter is achievable because accelerator programs work faster than a server and not only will an Internet site work better, but the server load shall also decrease, which will allow you to run heavy websites with less resources. We provide three web accelerators with our hosting plans, which will allow you to accelerate any type of Internet site. In comparison, most web hosting companies do not offer any web accelerators or provide just one, which limits your choice of web apps in the event that you'd like to use this kind of software.
Web Accelerators in Website Hosting
Our website hosting solutions include three web accelerators that you will be able to employ depending on the sites that you would like to run. Memcached is employed to cache database or API calls and responses, which can considerably enhance the functionality of dynamic websites. Varnish is a popular HTTP accelerator which caches webpages and delivers them to the visitors considerably faster than the web server after the first time they open them. Node.js is an event-driven platform employed for scalable real-time apps for example booking sites. Based on the Internet hosting plan you choose, these three programs might already be included or might be optional upgrades. Either way, you'll be able to select how many instances of every one of them shall be at your disposal and what amount of memory they should employ. These accelerators are offered only by a handful of web hosting providers, including ours, and they could boost the speed of your web apps substantially.
