A web accelerator is a software that speeds up a site, normally by caching its content. There are various sorts of accelerators, but in the typical case this kind of apps cache static content or database responses and provide them instead of the web server, hence increasing the performance of a site considerably. The latter is possible because accelerator apps work faster than a hosting server and not only will a website work better, but the server load will also decrease, which will allow you to run heavy sites with less resources. We provide three web accelerators with our hosting packages, which will enable you to increase the speed of any type of website. In comparison, most Internet hosting service providers do not offer any web accelerators or provide only 1, which limits your choice of web apps if you want to use such software.
Web Accelerators in Cloud Hosting
Our cloud hosting solutions come with three web accelerators which you can employ depending on the Internet sites that you would like to run. Memcached is used to cache database or API calls and responses, which can significantly improve the functionality of dynamic Internet sites. Varnish is a popular HTTP accelerator that caches webpages and provides them to the visitors much faster than the server after the first time they open them. Node.js is an event-driven platform used for scalable real-time applications such as booking sites. Depending upon the hosting solution you select, these 3 applications may already be included or might be optional upgrades. In either case, you'll be able to select how many instances of every one of them will be at your disposal and how much memory they should use. These accelerators are supplied only by several Internet hosting providers, including ours, and they can increase the speed of your web applications considerably.
