A web accelerator is a server-side app which speeds up a site. Such a piece of software may function in different ways depending upon the website content, but in the general case all such programs cache content and deliver it instead of the web server. That's valid for both static and dynamic Internet sites since the cached content may be simple text or database responses and the advantage of using a web accelerator is not just the faster loading Internet site, but also the smaller overall load on the machine. That way, you can employ a lower-end hosting solution that'll also cost less while your website visitors could still enjoy fast browsing speeds. Several companies supply web accelerators with their hosting plans and they frequently offer only one, while we offer three different ones that'll enable you to boost the performance of any sort of Internet site substantially.

Web Accelerators in Cloud Hosting

Our cloud hosting packages include three web accelerators that you could employ depending on the Internet sites that you would like to run. Memcached is employed to cache database or API calls and responses, which could drastically boost the functionality of dynamic sites. Varnish is a popular HTTP accelerator which caches pages and provides them to the site 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 sites. Depending upon the web hosting solution you pick, these 3 apps could already be included or may be optional upgrades. Regardless, you'll be able to select how many instances of each one of them shall be at your disposal and how much memory they ought to employ. These accelerators are provided only by a few web hosting providers, including ours, and they can easily boost the speed of your web apps substantially.
