The Neto Web Accelerator

Dramatically improve your website load times with the Neto Web Accelerator.

The Neto Web Accelerator is designed to make your website run faster. It is a combination of Varnish (a popular http accelerator used by the likes of Wikipedia, Facebook and Twitter), Memcached (a high-performance, distributed memory object caching system used by the likes of Youtube, Craigslist and Flickr) and our own bit of magic (used by you).

All Neto customers have access to the Neto Web Accelerator as part of Neto v5.8 and above. The web accelerator is on by default, and can be accessed by going to Setup & Tools > Web Accelerator.


The web accelerator offers full page caching, does this mean that customer data such as shopping cart and account information will be cached?

No, we have designed the accelerator in such a way that shopping cart, customer, session and form data is loaded separately.

How long does it take to work?

A web page must be loaded once (by any user) for that page to be accelerated for future visits. Therefore once a user (bot or human) has visited a web page, any user thereafter will experience the accelerated version of that page.

I have edited my website source code / content, but my changes are not showing….why?

The web accelerator offers full page caching, this means that while turned on, changes to your website source code will not be visible on your website in real time. If you are in the process of developing your website, turn on development mode by going to Setup & Tools > Web Accelerator. Once you have completed development you can turn the web accelerator back on.

How do I prevent part of my website being cached by the Neto web accelerator?

You can prevent any part of your website being cached by the Neto web accelerator by wrapping it in the [%AJAX_LOADER%] function tag.
