A web accelerator is a piece of software which speeds up a site usually by caching content and providing it instead of the web server. Such applications can be employed for both static and dynamic sites as there are various accelerators that can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The main advantage of employing a web accelerator is that a given website will perform significantly faster without using additional system resources. Just the opposite, such a website will demand much less resources to work because the web accelerator will handle most requests rather than the server. Unlike many firms that don't offer web accelerators with their packages or offer only 1, we offer 3 different ones which will allow you to speed up your sites whatever their kind or content.
Web Accelerators in Cloud Website Hosting
If you host your websites within a cloud website hosting
account from our company, you shall have three popular web accelerators to select from if you'd like to enhance the sites' efficiency. Memcached is employed for database-driven sites and it caches the calls and requests between a site and its database, so it can easily lessen the load of such websites substantially. Varnish caches whole webpages 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 more quickly than the hosting server, so it can raise the loading speed of any website approximately 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time apps which operates on the hosting server and not in the visitor's browser. It's employed for holiday accommodation booking, chats and other apps where plenty of data has to be processed in real time. The availability of the accelerators depends upon the hosting package which you choose - they may come by default or as an upgrade. In each case, you'll be able to include more instances or more memory for each one of them.
