A web accelerator is a software application that accelerates a website usually by caching content and supplying it instead of the hosting server. Such apps may be used for both static and dynamic Internet sites as there are different accelerators which can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The advantage of employing a web accelerator is that a given website shall perform significantly faster without employing extra system resources. On the contrary, such a website will need much less resources to work because the web accelerator will handle most requests rather than the server. Contrary to many businesses that don't offer web accelerators with their plans or offer only 1, we offer 3 different ones which will enable you to speed up your sites regardless of their type or content.

Web Accelerators in Shared Web Hosting

When you host your Internet sites within a shared web hosting account from us, you shall have three popular web accelerators to pick from if you'd like to enhance the sites' performance. Memcached is used for database-driven websites and it caches the calls and requests between a site and its database, so it can easily reduce the load of such sites substantially. Varnish caches whole 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 considerably faster than the hosting server, so it can boost the loading speed of any site up to 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time applications that functions on the server and not in the visitor's browser. It's used for holiday accommodation booking, chats and other programs where lots of data should be processed in real time. The availability of the accelerators depends upon the hosting solution that you select - they might come by default or as an upgrade. In both cases, you shall be able to include more instances or more memory for every one of them.
