A web accelerator is a server-side program which accelerates an Internet site. Such a piece of software can operate in different ways depending on the website content, but in the typical case all such programs cache content and deliver it instead of the server. This is valid for both dynamic and static sites since the cached content may be simple text or database responses and the advantage of using a web accelerator isn't just the faster loading site, but also the lessened overall load on the hosting server. This way, you'll be able to use a lower-end hosting solution which will also cost less while your website visitors could still enjoy superior browsing speeds. Few businesses supply web accelerators with their hosting plans and they usually offer only 1, while we offer three different ones that will enable you to boost the performance of any type of Internet site substantially.

Web Accelerators in Website Hosting

Our website hosting packages come with 3 web accelerators that you can employ depending on the websites which you'd like to run. Memcached is employed to cache database or API calls and responses, which could greatly boost the efficiency of dynamic sites. Varnish is a popular HTTP accelerator which caches pages and provides them to the visitors much faster than the hosting server after the first time they open them. Node.js is an event-driven platform employed for scalable real-time applications such as booking websites. Based on the web hosting package you pick, these 3 programs may already be included or might be optional upgrades. Regardless, you'll be able to select how many instances of each one of them shall be at your disposal and what amount of memory they ought to use. These accelerators are offered only by a handful of web hosting companies, including ours, and they can easily increase the speed of your web programs significantly.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

In the event that you obtain a dedicated server from our firm and you choose Hepsia as the hosting CP, you shall be able to use Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your sites. All plans include several gigabytes of memory dedicated to these accelerators and the exact amount depends on the package deal that you select. Node.js is used for scalable online applications like browser games or hotel booking and it processes the information instantly as the client enters it, which makes it much faster than very similar platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you employ it for a script-driven website, not only will the Internet site speed up, but also the load on the server will minimize since there shall be considerably less database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it is not limited to databases. Instead, it caches whole webpages once a visitor opens them and delivers them instead of the server each time the same visitor opens them later on. Since Varnish processes web requests much quicker than any web server, the performance of a website using this accelerator may increase up to 300%.
