A web accelerator is a program that speeds up a website, usually by caching its content. There are different sorts of accelerators, but in the typical case this sort of programs cache static content or database responses and provide them in place of the web server, thus increasing the performance of a website greatly. The latter is possible because accelerator programs work faster than a hosting server and not simply will a website operate better, but the server load will also minimize, which will allow you to run heavy Internet sites with less system resources. We offer 3 web accelerators with our hosting solutions, which will enable you to increase the speed of any type of website. In comparison, most hosting companies don't offer any web accelerators or offer one, which limits your choice of web apps in case you want to use this kind of software.

Depending on the web hosting solution you select, these 3 applications could already be included or could be optional upgrades. Either way, you shall be able to pick how many instances of each of them will be at your disposal and how much memory they ought to employ.
