A web accelerator is a server-side app which speeds up a website. Such a piece of software can operate in different ways depending on the website content, but in the typical case all such applications cache content and deliver it instead of the server. That's valid for both dynamic and static sites since the cached content could be simple text or database responses and the benefit of using a web accelerator is not just the faster loading website, but also the reduced overall load on the server. This way, you can use a lower-end hosting solution that will also cost less while your visitors can still enjoy superior browsing speeds. Several companies provide web accelerators with their hosting deals and they often offer only one, while we offer 3 different ones that'll enable you to enhance the performance of any kind of Internet site substantially.

Web Accelerators in Shared Website Hosting

In case you host your Internet sites in a shared website hosting account from our firm, you will have 3 popular web accelerators to select from if you would like to boost the sites' efficiency. Memcached is employed for database-driven Internet sites and it caches the calls and requests between a site and its database, so it can easily decrease the load of such Internet sites drastically. Varnish caches entire web pages the first time a visitor opens them and provides them from there on if the same visitor opens them again. It does that much faster than the web server, so it can raise the loading speed of any Internet site nearly 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time applications that works on the hosting server and not inside the visitor's web browser. It's used for holiday accommodation booking, chats and other applications where lots of data should be processed in real time. The availability of the accelerators depends upon the hosting plan which you pick - they might come by default or as an upgrade. In both cases, you'll be able to add more instances or more memory for each of them.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Web Hosting

Memcached, Varnish and Node.js come with all dedicated servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and in accordance with the package deal you pick, you shall also have several gigabytes of dedicated memory for them. Memcached can lessen the web server load by lowering the number of queries that have to be handled because it caches database calls and responses. You'll be able to use it on every Internet site which uses an API or a database - as an example, any website designed with WordPress or Joomla. Varnish can easily enhance the performance of any kind of site by caching whole webpages the first time a visitor opens them. The accelerator delivers the pages if the very same visitor opens them later and since it does that faster than the web server, the website visitor will be able to surf your site at least a few times faster. That's why Varnish is occasionally referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is an advanced platform which will enable you to create booking websites, web chats and other applications in which real-time server-user interaction is required. It processes the data in little pieces as the user fills different boxes and does not wait for all boxes to be filled and processed as one sizeable piece of data, which makes Node.js way quicker than similar applications.
