A web accelerator is a server-side app which quickens an Internet site. Such a piece of software could function in different ways depending on the website content, but in the general situation all such applications cache content and deliver it instead of the web server. That is valid for both dynamic and static sites because the cached content may be simple text or database responses and the advantage of using a web accelerator is not just the faster loading site, but also the reduced overall load on the web server. That way, you may employ a lower-end hosting solution that will also cost less while your site visitors could still enjoy high browsing speeds. Handful of service providers provide web accelerators with their hosting packages and they typically offer just one, while we offer 3 different ones that will allow you to enhance the performance of any type of website substantially.

Web Accelerators in Shared Website Hosting

In case you host your websites within a shared website hosting account from our company, you'll have three popular web accelerators to select from if you would like to boost the sites' functionality. Memcached is used for database-driven sites and it caches the calls and requests between an Internet site and its database, so it can easily reduce the load of such websites tremendously. Varnish caches whole web pages the first time a visitor opens them and provides them from there on if the same visitor opens them again. It does that considerably faster than the hosting server, so it could increase the loading speed of any site approximately 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time apps that operates on the server and not in the visitor's browser. It is used for accommodation booking, chats and other apps where plenty of data needs to be processed in real time. The availability of the accelerators depends upon the hosting package that you choose - they could come by default or as an upgrade. In both cases, you'll be able to add more instances or more memory for each of them.
