A web accelerator is a server-side app that speeds up a site. Such a piece of software can operate in different ways based on the website content, but in the general case all such applications cache content and deliver it instead of the server. This is valid for both dynamic and static websites because the cached content could be simple text or database responses and the reward of employing a web accelerator isn't simply the faster loading website, but also the minimized overall load on the server. That way, you could employ a lower-end hosting plan which will also cost less while your website visitors can still enjoy fast browsing speeds. Several service providers offer web accelerators with their hosting packages and they often offer only one, while we offer three different ones that'll enable you to boost the performance of any type of Internet site substantially.

Web Accelerators in Shared Hosting

If you get one of our shared hosting plans, you'll have 3 popular web accelerators at your disposal and you will be able to access them directly via the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with our packages. Varnish is one of the most widely used ones and it could significantly increase the speed of any Internet site as it caches the pages that a visitor opens for the first time and provides them every time that website visitor opens them again. Because Varnish functions much faster than any hosting server, the loading speed of any site using the accelerator will grow significantly. Memcached is employed to cache database and API calls and responses between a website visitor and a web server, so it is comparable to Varnish, but is used largely for database-driven websites. Since the site will connect to its database way less, the overall server load shall be decreased substantially. The third accelerator, Node.js, is used for scalable online programs like chats and booking sites as it processes info in real time as soon as it is entered on the website by the users. Based on the plan you select, these accelerators may be available or might be an optional upgrade.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you go for one of our semi-dedicated hosting packages, you will be able to work with Varnish, Memcached and Node.js - three efficient web accelerators. Varnish is a multi-purpose application which caches websites the first time a site visitor opens them and delivers them instead of the hosting server if the visitor opens them again nearly 300% faster. Memcached caches API and database calls and responses so the server doesn't need to process every request, which makes it ideal for database-driven sites, for instance ones designed with Joomla or WordPress. Node.js is employed to produce web apps which operate in real-time such as chats or accommodation booking portals and it processes each and every bit of info the moment the user enters it rather than waiting for sizeable chunks of data to be accumulated. The Hepsia Control Panel which is included with our semi-dedicated solutions shall enable you to select how many instances of each accelerator will work at a time and the amount of memory they'll use.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Hosting

Memcached, Node.js and Varnish are provided by default with all of our dedicated servers which are ordered with Hepsia as the web hosting Control Panel. These three web accelerators offer several gigabytes of dedicated memory and you may use them to speed up any kind of site. Memcached can significantly minimize the load on the server if you have script-driven Internet sites as it caches database responses, therefore it lessens the amount of database queries which the server has to tackle. Node.js will enable you to build scalable programs with real-time user-server interaction including chats or dining booking sites. Its advantage over very similar platforms is that it processes information the instant the end user enters it, so all the info is handled swifter and in small portions. Varnish caches whole webpages the first time a site visitor opens them and delivers them each and every time the same visitor opens them again, that makes it a universal accelerator for any sort of websites. Since it works quicker than any hosting server, it could speed up an Internet site at least several times and for that reason, Varnish is amongst the most widely used web accelerators around.
