A web accelerator is a server-side program which accelerates a website. Such a piece of software could operate in different ways depending on the site content, but in the typical situation all such programs cache content and deliver it instead of the server. That is valid for both static and dynamic sites since the cached content could be simple text or database responses and the benefit of employing a web accelerator isn't only the faster loading site, but also the reduced overall load on the machine. That way, you can use a lower-end hosting package that will also cost less while your visitors will be able to still enjoy fast browsing speeds. Several service providers offer web accelerators with their hosting plans and they often offer just one, while we offer 3 different ones that'll allow you to boost the performance of any type of Internet site tremendously.
Web Accelerators in Shared Web Hosting
When you host your sites within a shared web hosting
account from our company, you shall have 3 popular web accelerators to pick from if you'd like to boost the sites' efficiency. Memcached is employed for database-driven Internet sites and it caches the calls and requests between a site and its database, so it can decrease the load of such Internet sites tremendously. Varnish caches whole web pages the first time a website visitor opens them and delivers them from there on if the same visitor opens them again. It does that much more quickly than the web server, so it can raise the loading speed of any site as much as 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time programs that operates on the hosting server and not in the visitor's Internet browser. It's employed for accommodation booking, chats and other apps where a lot of data needs to be processed in real time. The availability of the accelerators depends on the hosting solution that you select - they could come by default or as an upgrade. In each case, you'll be able to add more instances or more memory for each one of them.
