A web accelerator is a software application that accelerates an Internet site usually by caching content and delivering it instead of the hosting server. Such applications could be employed for both dynamic and static Internet sites as there are various accelerators which 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 noticeably faster without employing more resources. Just the opposite, such a website will demand a lesser amount of resources to work since the web accelerator will deal with most requests instead of the server. Contrary to many firms which don't offer web accelerators with their plans or offer only one, we offer 3 different ones which will allow you to speed up your sites whatever their type or content.

Web Accelerators in Cloud Hosting

Our cloud hosting solutions come with three web accelerators which you can employ depending on the sites that you would like to run. Memcached is used to cache database or API calls and responses, which can greatly enhance the performance of dynamic sites. Varnish is a popular HTTP accelerator which caches web pages and delivers them to the visitors faster than the server after the first time they open them. Node.js is an event-driven platform used for scalable real-time programs for example booking sites. Based on the web hosting plan you choose, these three apps could already be included or may be optional upgrades. In any case, you will be able to choose how many instances of each of them will be at your disposal and what amount of memory they should employ. These accelerators are offered only by several hosting companies, including ours, and they could boost the speed of your web programs significantly.
