A web accelerator is a software application that speeds up a website typically by caching content and delivering it instead of the server. Such applications can be employed for both static and dynamic sites because there are a variety of accelerators that can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The main advantage of employing a web accelerator is that a given site shall perform substantially faster without employing extra system resources. Quite the opposite, this type of a website will require significantly less resources to operate as the web accelerator will handle most requests rather than the web server. Contrary to many businesses which do not offer web accelerators with their solutions or offer just one, we offer three different ones which will permit you to speed up your websites whatever their type or content.
Web Accelerators in Shared Hosting
In case you host your sites inside a shared hosting
account from our company, you will have 3 popular web accelerators to choose from if you'd like to improve the sites' efficiency. Memcached is employed for database-driven Internet sites and it caches the calls and requests between an Internet site and its database, so it can lessen the load of such Internet sites tremendously. Varnish caches whole web pages the first time a website visitor opens them and provides them from there on if the same guest opens them again. It does that much faster than the server, so it can raise the loading speed of any Internet site as much as 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time applications that operates on the hosting server and not in the visitor's Internet browser. It is used for accommodation booking, chats and other applications where a lot of data has to be processed in real time. The availability of these accelerators depends upon the hosting package which you select - they could come by default or as an upgrade. In both cases, you will be able to include more instances or more memory for each one of them.
