A web accelerator is an application that accelerates a site, usually by caching its content. There are many types of accelerators, but in the typical case this kind of applications cache static content or database responses and supply them in lieu of the web server, as a consequence enhancing the performance of a website greatly. The latter is achievable because accelerator programs work faster than a hosting server and not simply will a site work better, but the server load shall also minimize, which will allow you to run heavy Internet sites with less resources. We offer three web accelerators with our hosting plans, which will allow you to speed up any sort of Internet site. In comparison, most website hosting businesses do not provide any web accelerators or provide only one, which limits your choice of web applications in case you would like to employ this kind of software.

Web Accelerators in Cloud Hosting

If you acquire one of our cloud hosting solutions, you'll have three well-known web accelerators at your disposal and you shall be able to access them directly using the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with our plans. Varnish is one of the most widely used ones and it can considerably accelerate any Internet site because it caches the pages which a site visitor opens for the first time and delivers them every time that website visitor opens them again. Given that Varnish works considerably faster than any web server, the loading speed of any website using the accelerator shall improve significantly. Memcached is employed to cache database and API calls and responses between a visitor and a server, so it's similar to Varnish, but is employed primarily for database-driven sites. Considering that the website will connect to its database much less, the overall web server load will be minimized significantly. The last accelerator, Node.js, is used for scalable online applications like chats and booking sites since it processes info in real time as soon as it is entered on the site by the users. Dependant upon the package you choose, these accelerators might be available or could be an optional upgrade.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you select one of our semi-dedicated server packages, you'll be able to take advantage of Varnish, Memcached and Node.js - 3 efficient web accelerators. Varnish is a multi-purpose application that caches pages the first time a website visitor opens them and delivers them instead of the web server if the site visitor opens them again close to 300% faster. Memcached caches API and database calls and responses so the server doesn't need to process each and every request, that makes it ideal for database-driven sites, for instance ones designed with Joomla or WordPress. Node.js is used to produce web applications that function in real-time like chats or accommodation booking websites and it processes every bit of info the instant the user types it rather than waiting for large chunks of data to be accumulated. The Hepsia CP which is provided with our semi-dedicated packages shall allow you to pick how many instances of each and every accelerator shall work at a time and how much memory they'll use.
