A web accelerator is a server-side application which quickens a site. Such a piece of software could work in different ways based on the site content, but in the typical situation all such applications cache content and deliver it instead of the hosting server. This is valid for both static and dynamic websites because the cached content can be simple text or database responses and the reward of employing a web accelerator is not simply the faster loading website, but also the reduced overall load on the hosting server. This way, you'll be able to use a lower-end hosting package which will also cost less while your website visitors could still enjoy fast browsing speeds. Handful of service providers supply web accelerators with their hosting deals and they usually offer just one, while we offer 3 different ones that will permit you to boost the performance of any type of site considerably.

Web Accelerators in Website Hosting

When you get one of our website hosting solutions, you'll have 3 well-known web accelerators at your disposal and you'll be able to access them directly using the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with our plans. Varnish is one of the most popular ones and it could considerably increase the speed of any Internet site as it caches the web pages which a visitor opens for the first time and provides them each time that website visitor opens them again. Since Varnish functions noticeably faster than any hosting server, the loading speed of any website using the accelerator shall raise noticeably. Memcached is used to cache database and API calls and responses between an Internet site visitor and a web server, so it's much like Varnish, but is employed primarily for database-driven websites. Because the website will connect to its database much less, the overall hosting server load will be decreased substantially. The third accelerator, Node.js, is used for scalable online applications including chats and booking websites since it processes info in real time as soon as it is entered on the webpage by the users. Dependant upon the plan you pick, these accelerators might be available or could be an optional upgrade.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You shall be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the sites hosted in your semi-dedicated hosting account depending on the nature of the website content. Memcached, in particular, caches database requests, so it is an excellent option for any script application like WordPress or Joomla. This way, the database web server won't have to process the exact same request if multiple users open a page with the same content. Varnish is comparable, but it is a general-purpose accelerator since it caches any sort of content the first time a website visitor opens a site. In case this webpage is opened again by the same guest, it'll be delivered by Varnish at a much higher speed compared to the hosting server. Using this web accelerator will reduce the load generated by your websites considerably. Last, but not least, Node.js shall permit you to produce scalable web apps like hotel booking Internet sites or chats. Its advantage over similar platforms is that it doesn't wait for a client to submit a sizable piece of info, but processes whatever the customer is entering in real-time. The 3 web accelerators are available inside the Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to pick how many instances of each one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they'll use.
