A web accelerator is a server-side app which speeds up a site. Such a piece of software may function in different ways depending upon the website content, but in the general situation all such programs cache content and deliver it instead of the hosting server. That's valid for both dynamic and static Internet sites as the cached content may be simple text or database responses and the benefit of employing a web accelerator is not just the faster loading website, but also the lessened overall load on the hosting server. That way, you could employ a lower-end hosting plan that'll also cost less while your visitors can still enjoy fast browsing speeds. Handful of companies supply web accelerators with their hosting packages and they often offer just one, while we offer 3 different ones that will enable you to improve the performance of any type of website substantially.

Web Accelerators in Shared Website Hosting

We offer three of the most well-known web accelerators with our shared website hosting packages and depending on what plan you'll choose when you sign up, they could already be available or they might be an optional upgrade. Varnish is the most popular one of them and it can be used for any sort of Internet site. It caches the web pages the first time a site visitor opens them and provides them at a considerably faster speed compared to the hosting server each time that a website visitor opens them again. Memcached is employed to cache API and database calls, so it can increase the speed of dynamic sites including online stores, community forums or social networks. Node.js is employed for scalable web applications and it works in real-time, which makes it suitable for server-side data processing - chats, browser games, booking portals, and many others. You will be able to pick what amount of memory these accelerators will use and how many instances of each one shall run from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

Memcached, Varnish and Node.js are available with all dedicated servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting CP and depending on the package which you choose, you will also have several gbs of dedicated memory for them. Memcached can minimize the web server load by lowering the amount of queries that have to be taken care of as it caches database calls and responses. You shall be able to use it on any Internet site which uses an API or a database - as an illustration, any site developed with WordPress or Joomla. Varnish could improve the performance of any sort of site by caching whole webpages the first time a guest opens them. The accelerator provides the webpages if the same visitor opens them later on and given that it does that much faster than the web server, the visitor will be able to browse your website at least several times faster. For this reason Varnish is often referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is an advanced platform which will allow you to develop booking sites, web chats and other applications in which real-time server-user interaction is needed. It processes the info in tiny portions as the user fills different boxes and does not wait for all boxes to be filled and processed as one massive piece of info, which makes Node.js considerably quicker than similar applications.
