Linux Squid (A proxy Server)
Are you facing the website loading speed issues? the speed matters. The solution is Squid which is mostly used to speed up the web delivery time. What is squid ? Basically it is a proxy server which is used to enhance the loading time, web performance optimization and server load reduction. So you can call it as Server Accelerator. Also many of the ISP are using squid for the speedy and reliable web browsing for their customers.
Squid basically a caching proxy server which always cache the frequent requests on the websites and next time they are loaded from the cache rather than once again forwarding the request to the server, Many of the ISP domain like the Squid cached content concept that the data will be saved locally for the normal visitors. So it helps you to have better performance without extra expenditure on software or hardware purchase etc.
It supports HTTP, HTTPS and FTP. It is supported by all the OS.
