A web accelerator is a program which quickens a site, usually by caching its content. There are many sorts of accelerators, but in the general case this kind of programs cache static content or database responses and supply them in place of the hosting server, hence improving the performance of an Internet site drastically. The latter can be done because accelerator programs work faster than a web server and not simply will an Internet site function better, but the server load will also decrease, which will allow you to run heavy sites with less resources. We provide 3 web accelerators with our hosting plans, which will allow you to increase the speed of any sort of Internet site. In comparison, most hosting providers do not offer any web accelerators or offer only one, which limits your choice of web applications if you want to use such software.
Web Accelerators in Shared Hosting
Our shared hosting solutions include 3 web accelerators which you will be able to use depending on the sites which you would like to run. Memcached is employed to cache database or API calls and responses, which can significantly improve the efficiency of dynamic websites. Varnish is a popular HTTP accelerator that caches web pages and provides them to the visitors considerably quicker than the web server after the first time they open them. Node.js is an event-driven platform used for scalable real-time programs for example booking websites. Depending upon the web hosting solution you choose, these three programs may already be included or could be optional upgrades. Either way, you shall be able to pick how many instances of each of them will be at your disposal and how much memory they should employ. These accelerators are offered only by a few web hosting providers, including ours, and they could boost the speed of your web programs substantially.
