A web accelerator is a server-side application which speeds up a website. Such a piece of software may work in different ways depending upon the website content, but in the general situation all such programs cache content and deliver it instead of the server. That is valid for both static and dynamic websites because the cached content could be simple text or database responses and the advantage of employing a web accelerator is not just the faster loading website, but also the reduced overall load on the server. This way, you may employ a lower-end hosting plan which will also cost less while your site visitors could still enjoy fast browsing speeds. Few service providers supply web accelerators with their hosting packages and they often offer just one, while we offer 3 different ones which will allow you to improve the performance of any type of Internet site substantially.

Web Accelerators in Hosting

If you purchase one of our hosting packages, you shall have three popular web accelerators at your disposal and you'll be able to access them directly via the Hepsia Control Panel that is included with our solutions. Varnish is one of the most popular ones and it could greatly increase the speed of any website because it caches the web pages which a website visitor opens for the first time and provides them each time that visitor opens them again. Since Varnish operates faster than any hosting server, the loading speed of any Internet site using the accelerator shall grow considerably. Memcached is used to cache database and API calls and responses between an Internet site visitor and a server, so it is comparable to Varnish, but is used mainly for database-driven Internet sites. Since the Internet site will connect to its database way less, the overall web server load will be reduced significantly. The 3rd accelerator, Node.js, is employed for scalable online programs like chats and booking Internet sites because it processes data in real time the moment it is entered on the site by the users. Depending on the plan you select, these accelerators may be available or may be an optional upgrade.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

Memcached, Node.js and Varnish are offered by default with all our dedicated servers that are ordered with Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel. These 3 web accelerators come with several gigabytes of dedicated memory and you can use them to speed up any type of Internet site. Memcached can greatly decrease the load on the hosting server if you have script-driven websites since it caches database responses, so it lessens the amount of database queries which the server has to handle. Node.js will permit you to develop scalable programs with real-time user-server interaction such as chats or dining booking sites. Its advantage over very similar platforms is that it processes data the instant the user enters it, so all the data is managed quicker and in small parts. Varnish caches whole webpages the first time a site visitor opens them and provides them every time the same guest opens them again, that makes it a universal accelerator for any kind of websites. Because it operates quicker than any hosting server, it can easily speed up an Internet site at least several times and because of this, Varnish is amongst the most popular web accelerators on the market.
