A web accelerator is a program which quickens a site, usually by caching its content. There are different types of accelerators, but in the common case this kind of programs cache static content or database responses and provide them instead of the hosting server, as a consequence boosting the performance of a site significantly. The latter can be done because accelerator programs work faster than a web server and not simply will a site work better, but the server load will also minimize, which will permit you to run heavy Internet sites with less resources. We provide three web accelerators with our hosting packages, which will allow you to accelerate any type of website. In comparison, most website hosting service providers don't provide any web accelerators or offer one, which limits your choice of web applications if you want to use this type of software.

Web Accelerators in Shared Web Hosting

In case you host your websites in a shared web hosting account from our firm, you will have 3 popular web accelerators to choose 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 a website and its database, so it can easily decrease the load of such websites substantially. Varnish caches whole web pages the first time a visitor opens them and delivers them from there on if the same site visitor opens them again. It does that much faster than the server, so it could boost the loading speed of any site up to 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time programs which works on the web server and not inside the visitor's world-wide web browser. It is used for holiday accommodation booking, chats and other programs where loads of data has to be processed in real time. The availability of the accelerators depends on the hosting package that you pick - they might come by default or as an upgrade. In both cases, you'll be able to include more instances or more memory for every one of them.
