A web accelerator is a server-side application that speeds up a website. Such a piece of software may work in different ways based on the site content, but in the typical case all such programs cache content and deliver it instead of the server. That is valid for both static and dynamic websites since the cached content could be simple text or database responses and the benefit of employing a web accelerator isn't simply the faster loading site, but also the smaller overall load on the hosting server. That way, you'll be able to employ a lower-end hosting package that will also cost less while your site visitors can still enjoy superior browsing speeds. Few service providers provide web accelerators with their hosting packages and they frequently offer just one, while we offer three different ones which will permit you to improve the performance of any type of site substantially.

Web Accelerators in Shared Hosting

Our shared hosting solutions feature three web accelerators that you can employ depending on the Internet sites which you'd like to run. Memcached is employed to cache database or API calls and responses, which could drastically improve the efficiency of dynamic sites. Varnish is a popular HTTP accelerator which caches webpages and delivers them to the website visitors much quicker than the server after the first time they open them. Node.js is an event-driven platform used for scalable real-time apps such as booking websites. Depending on the web hosting plan you choose, these 3 apps might already be included or might be optional upgrades. Either way, you shall be able to select how many instances of each one of them shall be at your disposal and what amount of memory they should employ. These accelerators are offered only by a few Internet hosting service providers, including ours, and they could boost the speed of your web programs substantially.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

Memcached, Node.js and Varnish are provided by default with all our dedicated servers that are ordered with Hepsia as the Internet hosting CP. These three web accelerators feature several gigabytes of dedicated memory and you can employ them to speed up any type of site. Memcached can significantly reduce the load on the server if you have script-driven sites as it caches database responses, thus it lessens the amount of database queries which the web server has to tackle. Node.js will enable you to develop scalable apps with real-time user-server interaction including chats or dining booking sites. Its advantage over comparable platforms is that it processes data the moment the end user enters it, so all the information is taken care of quicker and in small pieces. Varnish caches whole webpages the first time a site visitor opens them and provides them each and every time the same website visitor opens them again, that makes it a universal accelerator for any kind of sites. Since it operates quicker than any web server, it can easily speed up a site at least several times and due to this fact, Varnish is one of the most popular web accelerators on the market.
