A web accelerator is a software program which speeds up an Internet site generally by caching content and providing it instead of the server. Such applications can be employed for both static and dynamic Internet sites because there are different accelerators which can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The benefit of employing a web accelerator is that a given Internet site shall perform substantially faster without employing more resources. Just the opposite, such a site will demand significantly less resources to function as the web accelerator will tackle most requests instead of the web server. In contrast to many businesses which do not offer web accelerators with their packages or offer only 1, we offer 3 different ones that will enable you to speed up your websites regardless of their type or content.

Web Accelerators in Shared Hosting

Our shared hosting solutions feature 3 web accelerators that you can employ depending on the websites that you would like to run. Memcached is used to cache database or API calls and responses, which can significantly boost the performance of dynamic websites. Varnish is a popular HTTP accelerator which caches web pages and delivers 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 for example booking sites. Depending on the web hosting plan you select, these three applications may already be included or could be optional upgrades. Either way, you will be able to select how many instances of every one of them will be at your disposal and what amount of memory they ought to use. These accelerators are offered only by a few web hosting companies, including ours, and they can increase the speed of your web applications considerably.
