A web accelerator is a server-side application which speeds up a site. Such a piece of software could function in different ways depending on the site content, but in the general case all such applications cache content and deliver it instead of the server. That is valid for both static and dynamic sites because the cached content may be simple text or database responses and the benefit of employing a web accelerator isn't simply the faster loading website, but also the minimized overall load on the server. This way, you can employ a lower-end hosting plan that'll also cost less while your website visitors will be able to still enjoy fast browsing speeds. Several businesses supply web accelerators with their hosting plans and they frequently offer only 1, while we offer 3 different ones which will allow you to improve the performance of any sort of site tremendously.

Web Accelerators in Cloud Web Hosting

Our cloud web hosting plans include three web accelerators that you could employ depending on the websites which you'd like to run. Memcached is used to cache database or API calls and responses, which could considerably enhance the performance of dynamic sites. Varnish is a popular HTTP accelerator which caches webpages and delivers them to the site visitors considerably faster than the web server after the first time they open them. Node.js is an event-driven platform employed for scalable real-time apps such as booking sites. Based on the hosting solution you pick, these three apps may already be included or might be optional upgrades. Either way, you shall be able to pick how many instances of each one of them shall be at your disposal and how much memory they should use. These accelerators are provided only by a handful of web hosting service providers, including ours, and they could boost the speed of your web apps significantly.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You'll be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the Internet sites hosted in your semi-dedicated hosting account in accordance with the nature of the site content. Memcached, in particular, caches database requests, therefore it's an excellent option for any script application like WordPress or Joomla. That way, the database web server shall not have to process the very same request if multiple users open a webpage with the same content. Varnish is similar, but it's a general-purpose accelerator because it caches any kind of content the first time a website visitor opens a site. If that page is opened again by the very same website visitor, it shall be provided by Varnish at a greater speed compared to the web server. Using this web accelerator shall lessen the load created by your sites tremendously. Last, but not least, Node.js will permit you to produce scalable web programs such as hotel booking sites or chats. Its advantage over comparable platforms is that it does not wait for a user to submit a substantial piece of information, but processes whatever the customer is inputting in real-time. The three web accelerators are available within the Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to choose how many instances of each one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they may use.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Hosting

Memcached, Node.js and Varnish are available by default with all of our dedicated servers that are ordered with Hepsia as the web hosting Control Panel. These three web accelerators feature several gbs of dedicated memory and you can employ them to speed up any kind of site. Memcached can substantially decrease the load on the hosting server if you have script-driven Internet sites as it caches database responses, thus it decreases the number of database queries the web server has to deal with. Node.js shall permit you to build scalable programs with real-time user-server interaction like chats or dining booking sites. Its advantage over similar platforms is that it processes information the instant the end user enters it, so all the info is managed faster and in small pieces. Varnish caches entire pages the first time a website visitor opens them and provides them every time the same guest opens them again, which makes it a universal accelerator for any kind of Internet sites. As it functions faster than any hosting server, it can speed up an Internet site at least several times and for that reason, Varnish is among the most widely used web accelerators out there.
