A web accelerator is a piece of software which accelerates a site usually by caching content and delivering it instead of the hosting server. Such programs could be employed for both dynamic and static websites as there are different accelerators which can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The main advantage of employing a web accelerator is that a given Internet site will perform significantly faster without employing additional resources. On the contrary, this kind of a website will demand much less resources to work because the web accelerator will tackle most requests rather than the hosting server. In contrast to many firms which do not offer web accelerators with their plans or offer only 1, we offer 3 different ones which will permit you to speed up your sites regardless of their style or content.
Web Accelerators in Cloud Hosting
Our cloud hosting packages come with 3 web accelerators that 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 considerably boost the efficiency of dynamic sites. Varnish is a popular HTTP accelerator which caches pages and delivers them to the site visitors considerably faster than the server after the first time they open them. Node.js is an event-driven platform used for scalable real-time programs including booking sites. Based on the hosting plan you choose, these three applications might already be included or may be optional upgrades. In either case, you shall be able to choose how many instances of each of them will be at your disposal and what amount of memory they ought to employ. These accelerators are offered only by several web hosting companies, including ours, and they can easily raise the speed of your web applications significantly.
