A web accelerator is a software program which accelerates a website typically by caching content and supplying it instead of the server. Such applications may be used for both static and dynamic Internet sites since there are a variety of accelerators which can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The main advantage of employing a web accelerator is that a given site will perform substantially faster without using more system resources. Quite the opposite, this type of a site will need significantly less resources to operate as the web accelerator will handle most requests rather than the hosting server. Unlike many businesses which don't offer web accelerators with their plans or offer only one, we offer 3 different ones which will allow you to speed up your websites whatever their type or content.
Web Accelerators in Website Hosting
If you host your Internet sites inside a website hosting
account from our company, you'll have 3 popular web accelerators to select from if you would like to enhance the sites' efficiency. Memcached is used for database-driven websites and it caches the calls and requests between a website and its database, so it can decrease the load of such sites significantly. Varnish caches whole webpages the first time a 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 as much as 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time programs that operates on the server and not inside the visitor's Internet browser. It is used for accommodation booking, chats and other applications where plenty of data has to be processed in real time. The availability of these accelerators depends upon the hosting package which you choose - they might come by default or as an upgrade. In each case, you shall be able to include more instances or more memory for every one of them.
