A web accelerator is a server-side application which quickens an Internet site. Such a piece of software could operate in different ways depending upon the website content, but in the general situation all such applications cache content and deliver it instead of the web server. This is valid for both static and dynamic Internet sites as the cached content may be simple text or database responses and the benefit of using a web accelerator isn't simply the faster loading Internet site, but also the smaller overall load on the machine. This way, you could use a lower-end hosting plan which will also cost less while your visitors can still enjoy high browsing speeds. Several firms provide web accelerators with their hosting plans and they often offer just one, while we offer 3 different ones that will permit you to improve the performance of any sort of website significantly.

Web Accelerators in Shared Hosting

If you host your sites within a shared hosting account from our firm, you'll have three popular web accelerators to pick from if you'd like to boost the sites' efficiency. Memcached is employed for database-driven sites and it caches the calls and requests between an Internet site and its database, so it can easily minimize the load of such Internet sites substantially. Varnish caches entire web pages the first time a website visitor opens them and provides them from there on if the same guest opens them again. It does that much faster than the web server, so it can raise the loading speed of any Internet site approximately 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time apps that operates on the server and not in the visitor's Internet browser. It's used for accommodation booking, chats and other applications where plenty of data should be processed in real time. The availability of those accelerators depends on the hosting plan which you select - they may come by default or as an upgrade. In both cases, you shall be able to include more instances or more memory for each of them.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Hosting

If you order a dedicated server from our company and you opt for Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel, you shall be able to use Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your Internet sites. All plans include 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 apps like browser games or hotel booking and it processes the data immediately as the user enters it, which makes it much faster than comparable platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you use it for a script-driven Internet site, not only will the Internet site speed up, but also the load on the server will decline since there shall be less database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it isn't limited to databases. Instead, it caches whole pages once a guest opens them and delivers them instead of the server whenever the same visitor opens them afterwards. As Varnish processes web requests much quicker than any web server, the overall performance of a website using this accelerator may increase nearly 300%.
