Just what do web accelerators do? What could you do in order to raise your site's load speed?
A web accelerator is an application which speeds up a site, normally by caching its content. There are many sorts of accelerators, but in the general case this kind of applications cache static content or database responses and supply them in place of the hosting server, hence improving the performance of a website drastically. The latter is achievable because accelerator applications work faster than a hosting server and not only will an Internet site operate better, but the server load will also decrease, which will enable you to run heavy sites with less system resources. We offer three web accelerators with our hosting packages, which will permit you to speed up any type of Internet site. In comparison, most Internet hosting companies don't provide any web accelerators or provide one, which limits your choice of web applications in the event that you would like to use such software.
Web Accelerators in Cloud Hosting
Our cloud hosting solutions come with 3 web accelerators which you could use depending on the websites that you would like to run. Memcached is employed to cache database or API calls and responses, which can significantly boost the performance of dynamic Internet sites. Varnish is a popular HTTP accelerator that caches web pages and delivers them to the visitors way quicker than the web server after the first time they open them. Node.js is an event-driven platform used for scalable real-time applications such as booking websites. Based on the web hosting plan you select, these three programs may already be included or might be optional upgrades. Regardless, 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 provided only by several Internet hosting companies, including ours, and they could raise the speed of your web applications substantially.
