Learn what exactly web accelerators are and in what way you are able to make the most of them to boost your website’s efficiency.
A web accelerator is a server-side program that speeds up an Internet site. Such a piece of software can operate in different ways depending on the site content, but in the typical situation all such apps cache content and deliver it instead of the web server. That is valid for both dynamic and static sites because the cached content may be simple text or database responses and the advantage of employing a web accelerator is not just the faster loading Internet site, but also the smaller overall load on the web server. That way, you can use a lower-end hosting solution that'll also cost less while your visitors can still enjoy high browsing speeds. Handful of service providers offer web accelerators with their hosting packages and they often offer just 1, while we offer 3 different ones that'll allow you to boost the performance of any sort of website substantially.
Web Accelerators in Web Hosting
Our web hosting
solutions come with 3 web accelerators that you will be able to use depending on the Internet sites that you'd like to run. Memcached is used to cache database or API calls and responses, which can greatly improve the performance of dynamic websites. Varnish is a popular HTTP accelerator which caches web pages and provides them to the visitors considerably faster than the web 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 hosting solution you choose, these 3 apps may already be included or may be optional upgrades. In either case, you'll be able to select how many instances of each one of them will be at your disposal and how much memory they should employ. These accelerators are supplied only by a handful of hosting service providers, including ours, and they can boost the speed of your web programs significantly.
