A web accelerator is a server-side application that speeds up a website. Such a piece of software can work in different ways depending upon the site content, but in the general situation all such programs cache content and deliver it instead of the hosting server. That is 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 only the faster loading site, but also the decreased overall load on the machine. That way, you can use a lower-end hosting solution that will also cost less while your website visitors will be able to still enjoy high browsing speeds. Few companies provide web accelerators with their hosting deals and they typically offer only 1, while we offer 3 different ones that'll permit you to improve the performance of any kind of website noticeably.

Web Accelerators in Shared Hosting

Our shared hosting packages come with three web accelerators that you will be able to employ depending on the Internet sites that you would like to run. Memcached is employed to cache database or API calls and responses, which could considerably enhance the functionality of dynamic sites. Varnish is a popular HTTP accelerator which caches web pages and delivers them to the visitors much faster than the hosting server after the first time they open them. Node.js is an event-driven platform used for scalable real-time applications for example booking websites. Based on the Internet hosting solution you pick, these 3 applications might already be included or might be optional upgrades. Either way, you shall be able to select how many instances of each one of them will be at your disposal and how much memory they ought to employ. These accelerators are offered only by a few Internet hosting companies, including ours, and they could increase the speed of your web applications considerably.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

In case you acquire a dedicated server from our company and you choose Hepsia as the hosting CP, you will be able to employ Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your sites. All plans feature several gigabytes of memory dedicated to these accelerators and the actual amount depends on the package you select. Node.js is used for scalable online apps like browser games or hotel booking and it processes the information immediately as the client enters it, which makes it faster than similar platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you use it for a script-driven website, not only will the website work faster, but also the load on the server will reduce since there will be fewer database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it is not limited to databases. Rather, it caches whole webpages once a guest opens them and delivers them instead of the web server each time the same visitor opens them afterwards. Because Varnish processes web requests faster than any web server, the performance of a website using this accelerator could increase around 300%.
