A web accelerator is a server-side application that speeds up a website. Such a piece of software could operate in different ways depending upon the website content, but in the general case all such apps cache content and deliver it instead of the hosting server. That's valid for both static and dynamic Internet sites because the cached content may be simple text or database responses and the advantage of employing a web accelerator isn't just the faster loading site, but also the decreased overall load on the server. This way, you'll be able to employ a lower-end hosting solution that will also cost less while your visitors will be able to still enjoy fast browsing speeds. Several companies provide web accelerators with their hosting packages and they frequently offer just 1, while we offer 3 different ones which will enable you to boost the performance of any kind of site noticeably.

Web Accelerators in Shared Web Hosting

Our shared web hosting packages come with 3 web accelerators that you could use depending on the Internet sites that you'd like to run. Memcached is used to cache database or API calls and responses, which could tremendously boost the performance of dynamic sites. Varnish is a popular HTTP accelerator that caches webpages and provides them to the site visitors considerably quicker than the hosting server after the first time they open them. Node.js is an event-driven platform used for scalable real-time apps for example booking websites. With respect to the web hosting solution you choose, these 3 applications may already be included or could be optional upgrades. In any case, you'll be able to choose how many instances of each of them shall be at your disposal and how much memory they ought to use. These accelerators are supplied only by several hosting providers, including ours, and they can easily raise the speed of your web programs substantially.

Web Accelerators in VPS Servers

In the event that you choose your VPS server to be incorporated with the Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to use Varnish, Memcached and Node.js - three of the most widely used web accelerators. Varnish caches sites the first time they're visited and delivers them whenever the same individual visits them again, which will boost any kind of Internet site several times. Memcached is employed for dynamic script apps for example Joomla and WordPress because it caches database requests and responses, therefore the database web server shall not have to process the very same webpage each time visitors open it in case the same content should be displayed. Node.js is a platform for developing real-time programs for instance online games and chats. It works faster than similar platforms since it processes the information in small parts all the time and does not wait for users to input a large piece of data that shall need more time to be processed. The 3 web accelerators are available with all Hepsia-based VPS solutions and feature several hundred MBs of dedicated memory.
