A web accelerator is an application that accelerates a website, normally by caching its content. There are various types of accelerators, but in the general case such applications cache static content or database responses and provide them in lieu of the server, as a consequence improving the performance of a website noticeably. The latter is possible because accelerator programs work faster than a web server and not only will a site function better, but the server load shall also decrease, which will allow you to run heavy sites with less resources. We provide three web accelerators with our hosting packages, which will permit you to accelerate any sort of website. In comparison, most website hosting firms do not provide any web accelerators or offer only one, which limits your choice of web apps if you want to use this kind of software.

Web Accelerators in Hosting

If you host your sites inside a hosting account from our company, you will have three popular web accelerators to pick from if you'd like to improve the sites' performance. Memcached is employed for database-driven sites and it caches the calls and requests between a website and its database, so it could decrease the load of such websites drastically. Varnish caches entire pages the first time a website visitor opens them and provides them from there on if the same visitor opens them again. It does that considerably faster than the 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 which operates on the server and not in the visitor's browser. It's employed for accommodation booking, chats and other programs where loads of data should be processed in real time. The availability of the accelerators depends on the hosting package that you choose - they might come by default or as an upgrade. In each case, you will be able to add more instances or more memory for each one of them.
