A web accelerator is a server-side app which quickens an Internet site. Such a piece of software could function in different ways depending upon the site content, but in the general situation all such programs cache content and deliver it instead of the server. This is valid for both static and dynamic sites since the cached content may be simple text or database responses and the advantage of using a web accelerator isn't just the faster loading Internet site, but also the smaller overall load on the server. This way, you could use a lower-end hosting solution that'll also cost less while your site visitors can still enjoy high browsing speeds. Few companies offer web accelerators with their hosting plans and they usually offer just one, while we offer 3 different ones that will allow you to improve the performance of any kind of site considerably.

Web Accelerators in Shared Website Hosting

Our shared website hosting packages feature three web accelerators which you will be able to use depending on the sites which you would like to run. Memcached is used to cache database or API calls and responses, which can significantly boost the performance of dynamic websites. Varnish is a popular HTTP accelerator that caches web pages and delivers them to the website visitors much faster than the web server after the first time they open them. Node.js is an event-driven platform employed for scalable real-time applications such as booking sites. Based on the web hosting solution you select, these 3 apps might already be included or may be optional upgrades. In either case, you will be able to choose how many instances of every one of them shall be at your disposal and how much memory they should employ. These accelerators are offered only by a few web hosting firms, including ours, and they can raise the speed of your web apps considerably.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the sites hosted within your semi-dedicated hosting account in accordance with the nature of the site content. Memcached, for example, caches database requests, so it is a great option for any script program such as WordPress or Joomla. That way, the database hosting server won't need to process the exact same request if a number of users open a page with the same content. Varnish is comparable, but it is a general-purpose accelerator as it caches any sort of content the first time a visitor opens an Internet site. In case that web page is opened again by the same guest, it shall be delivered by Varnish at a greater speed compared to the web server. Employing this web accelerator shall decrease the load created by your websites drastically. Last, but not least, Node.js shall permit you to create scalable web apps such as hotel booking sites or chats. Its advantage over comparable platforms is that it does not wait for a user to submit a large piece of info, but processes whatever the user is typing in real-time. The three web accelerators are available within the Hepsia CP and you will be able to choose how many instances of every one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they'll employ.

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 hosting Control Panel. These 3 web accelerators feature several gigabytes of dedicated memory and you could use them to speed up any sort of site. Memcached can substantially decrease the load on the server if you have script-driven websites as it caches database responses, therefore it minimizes the amount of database queries that the hosting server has to handle. Node.js will allow you to build scalable apps with real-time user-server interaction like chats or dining booking websites. Its advantage over similar platforms is that it processes information as soon as the end user enters it, so all the information is handled swifter and in small pieces. Varnish caches entire Internet pages the first time a website visitor opens them and provides them each and every time the same guest opens them again, that makes it a universal accelerator for any sort of websites. Because it works quicker than any web server, it can easily speed up a site at least several times and because of this, Varnish is amongst the most popular web accelerators around.
