A web accelerator is a server-side program which accelerates an Internet site. Such a piece of software can operate in different ways based on the site content, but in the general case all such programs cache content and deliver it instead of the web server. That is valid for both dynamic and static websites because the cached content can be simple text or database responses and the advantage of using a web accelerator is not simply the faster loading website, but also the reduced overall load on the hosting server. This way, you could use a lower-end hosting package that will also cost less while your site visitors could still enjoy superior browsing speeds. Few businesses offer web accelerators with their hosting plans and they frequently offer just one, while we offer three different ones which will allow you to boost the performance of any type of Internet site noticeably.

Web Accelerators in Shared Website Hosting

Our shared website hosting solutions come with three web accelerators which you can employ depending on the websites that you would like to run. Memcached is employed to cache database or API calls and responses, which can considerably enhance the efficiency of dynamic sites. Varnish is a popular HTTP accelerator which caches web pages and provides them to the visitors much quicker than the web server after the first time they open them. Node.js is an event-driven platform used for scalable real-time applications for example booking websites. Depending upon the hosting solution you pick, these 3 programs may already be included or might be optional upgrades. Either way, you shall be able to select how many instances of each of them will be at your disposal and how much memory they should use. These accelerators are offered only by a few Internet hosting companies, including ours, and they could increase the speed of your web applications significantly.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

You'll be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the websites hosted inside your semi-dedicated server account depending on the nature of the site content. Memcached, in particular, caches database requests, therefore it's a fantastic choice for any script program such as WordPress or Joomla. That way, the database hosting server shall not have to process the very same request if many users open a page with the same content. Varnish is very similar, but it is a general-purpose accelerator since it caches any sort of content the first time a visitor opens a site. If this webpage is opened again by the very same website visitor, it shall be provided by Varnish at a much better speed compared to the server. Using this web accelerator shall decrease the load generated by your sites substantially. Last, but not least, Node.js shall allow you to produce scalable web apps like hotel booking websites or chats. Its advantage over similar platforms is that it doesn't wait for a client to submit a large piece of information, but processes whatever the client is typing in real-time. The 3 web accelerators are available within the Hepsia CP and you'll be able to choose how many instances of each one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they'll use.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

Memcached, Node.js and Varnish are provided by default with all our dedicated servers which are ordered with Hepsia as the web hosting Control Panel. These 3 web accelerators come with several gigabytes of dedicated memory and you could use them to speed up any type of site. Memcached can substantially minimize the load on the server if you have script-driven sites because it caches database responses, so it decreases the amount of database queries the hosting server has to take care of. Node.js shall permit you to create scalable apps with real-time user-server interaction such as chats or dining booking Internet sites. Its advantage over comparable platforms is that it processes data the instant the user enters it, so all the info is handled swifter and in small bits. Varnish caches entire webpages the first time a website visitor opens them and provides them each and every time the same guest opens them again, which makes it a universal accelerator for any type of sites. Because it functions quicker than any web server, it can speed up a site at least several times and for that reason, Varnish is amongst the most widely used web accelerators on the market.
