A web accelerator is a server-side program that speeds up a site. Such a piece of software could function in different ways depending upon the site content, but in the general case all such applications cache content and deliver it instead of the hosting server. This is valid for both dynamic and static Internet sites since the cached content can be simple text or database responses and the reward of employing a web accelerator is not simply the faster loading website, but also the smaller overall load on the machine. This way, you'll be able to employ a lower-end hosting plan that will also cost less while your website visitors will be able to still enjoy superior browsing speeds. Several businesses offer web accelerators with their hosting plans and they typically offer only 1, while we offer three different ones which will allow you to boost the performance of any type of site noticeably.

Web Accelerators in Shared Web Hosting

If you host your websites within a shared web hosting account from our company, you will have three popular web accelerators to pick from if you would like to improve the sites' efficiency. Memcached is used for database-driven websites and it caches the calls and requests between an Internet site and its database, so it can easily minimize the load of such Internet sites tremendously. Varnish caches entire web pages the first time a site visitor opens them and provides them from there on if the same visitor opens them again. It does that much more quickly than the web server, so it can boost the loading speed of any Internet site up to 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time programs that functions on the server and not within the visitor's web browser. It is employed for accommodation booking, chats and other applications where a lot of data has to be processed in real time. The availability of those accelerators depends on the hosting plan that you choose - they might come by default or as an upgrade. In each case, you will be able to add more instances or more memory for every one of them.
