A web accelerator is a server-side app that accelerates a website. Such a piece of software may function in different ways depending upon the website content, but in the typical case all such apps cache content and deliver it instead of the server. That's valid for both static and dynamic Internet sites since the cached content could be simple text or database responses and the reward of employing a web accelerator isn't simply the faster loading site, but also the reduced overall load on the web server. That way, you'll be able to employ a lower-end hosting package that will also cost less while your website visitors can still enjoy fast browsing speeds. Handful of firms offer web accelerators with their hosting plans and they typically offer just one, while we offer 3 different ones that'll enable you to enhance the performance of any type of website noticeably.

Web Accelerators in Cloud Hosting

When you get one of our cloud hosting packages, you'll have 3 popular web accelerators at your disposal and you'll be able to access them directly through the Hepsia Control Panel that is included with our plans. Varnish is one of the most widely used ones and it could significantly speed up any site since it caches the pages a visitor opens for the first time and delivers them each and every time that guest opens them again. Since Varnish operates noticeably faster than any server, the loading speed of any Internet site using the accelerator shall grow substantially. Memcached is employed to cache database and API calls and responses between a visitor and a hosting server, so it is similar to Varnish, but is employed largely for database-driven Internet sites. Considering that the site will connect to its database a lot less, the overall web server load shall be decreased considerably. The third accelerator, Node.js, is used for scalable online applications such as chats and booking sites since it processes information in real time as soon as it is entered on the website by the users. Based on the plan you pick, these accelerators might be available or might be an optional upgrade.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

In case you obtain a dedicated server from our company and you opt for Hepsia as the hosting CP, you'll be able to employ Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your websites. All solutions come with several gigabytes of memory dedicated to these accelerators and the specific amount depends on the package deal you select. Node.js is employed for scalable online programs including browser games or hotel booking and it processes the information in real time as the client enters it, which makes it considerably faster than comparable platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you use it for a script-driven Internet site, not simply will the site speed up, but also the load on the hosting server will decline since there shall be fewer database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it's not limited to databases. Rather, it caches whole webpages once a visitor opens them and provides them instead of the hosting server whenever the same visitor opens them afterwards. As Varnish processes web requests much faster than any web server, the efficiency of a website using this accelerator can increase as much as 300%.
