A web accelerator is a server-side app which accelerates an Internet site. Such a piece of software could function in different ways depending on the website content, but in the typical situation all such apps cache content and deliver it instead of the web server. That is valid for both static and dynamic sites since the cached content could be simple text or database responses and the advantage of using a web accelerator isn't only the faster loading website, but also the reduced overall load on the machine. That way, you could use a lower-end hosting solution that'll also cost less while your site visitors can still enjoy fast browsing speeds. Several companies offer web accelerators with their hosting deals and they frequently offer just one, while we offer three different ones that will enable you to boost the performance of any sort of site tremendously.
Web Accelerators in Shared Hosting
When you host your websites within a shared hosting account from our company, you'll have three popular web accelerators to pick from if you would like to enhance the sites' functionality. Memcached is used for database-driven Internet sites and it caches the calls and requests between a site and its database, so it could minimize the load of such sites significantly. Varnish caches whole 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 hosting server, so it can easily raise the loading speed of any Internet site approximately 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time applications that functions on the hosting server and not in the visitor's browser. It is employed for accommodation booking, chats and other apps where lots of data needs to be processed in real time. The availability of those accelerators depends on the hosting plan that you pick - they could come by default or as an upgrade. In both cases, you will be able to add more instances or more memory for every one of them.
