A web accelerator is a software application that accelerates a website typically by caching content and providing it instead of the hosting server. Such apps may be used for both dynamic and static sites because there are various accelerators that can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The best thing about using a web accelerator is that a given Internet site shall perform significantly faster without employing more system resources. Quite the opposite, this type of a website will need much less resources to function as the web accelerator will take care of most requests rather than the hosting server. Unlike many companies that do not offer web accelerators with their plans or offer only 1, we offer 3 different ones which will allow you to speed up your sites regardless of their type or content.
Web Accelerators in Shared Hosting
Our shared hosting plans include 3 web accelerators which you can use depending on the Internet sites which you'd like to run. Memcached is employed to cache database or API calls and responses, which can significantly boost the performance of dynamic websites. Varnish is a popular HTTP accelerator that caches web pages and provides them to the site visitors considerably faster than the hosting server after the first time they open them. Node.js is an event-driven platform used for scalable real-time apps such as booking sites. With respect to the hosting plan you choose, these 3 programs might already be included or might be optional upgrades. In any case, you'll be able to pick how many instances of each of them shall be at your disposal and what amount of memory they should use. These accelerators are offered only by a handful of web hosting service providers, including ours, and they can raise the speed of your web apps significantly.
