A web accelerator is a server-side application which speeds up an Internet site. Such a piece of software may operate in different ways based on the site content, but in the general case all such apps cache content and deliver it instead of the server. This is 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 isn't just the faster loading Internet site, but also the smaller overall load on the web server. This way, you can employ a lower-end hosting package that'll also cost less while your visitors can still enjoy high browsing speeds. Few businesses provide web accelerators with their hosting deals and they usually offer only one, while we offer three different ones which will permit you to enhance the performance of any type of site significantly.

Web Accelerators in Web Hosting

Our web hosting packages feature three web accelerators which you will be able to employ depending on the websites that you'd like to run. Memcached is employed to cache database or API calls and responses, which could considerably improve the efficiency of dynamic websites. Varnish is a popular HTTP accelerator that caches web pages and provides them to the site visitors faster than the web server after the first time they open them. Node.js is an event-driven platform employed for scalable real-time apps including booking websites. With respect to the hosting package you select, these 3 apps could already be included or may be optional upgrades. Regardless, you'll be able to choose how many instances of each one of them will be at your disposal and what amount of memory they ought to use. These accelerators are provided only by a few Internet hosting service providers, including ours, and they could raise the speed of your web programs substantially.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You shall be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the Internet sites hosted inside your semi-dedicated hosting account based on the nature of the website content. Memcached, for example, caches database requests, therefore it is an excellent choice for any script app such as WordPress or Joomla. This way, the database hosting server shall not have to process the same request if multiple users open a website with the same content. Varnish is comparable, but it's a general-purpose accelerator as it caches any sort of content the first time a visitor opens an Internet site. In case that page is opened again by the exact same website visitor, it shall be provided by Varnish at a much better speed compared to the hosting server. Employing this web accelerator shall minimize the load created by your Internet sites considerably. Last, but not least, Node.js shall allow you to produce scalable web programs like hotel booking websites or chats. Its advantage over similar platforms is that it doesn't wait for a client to submit a sizable piece of data, but processes whatever the client is inputting in real-time. The three web accelerators are available within the Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to select how many instances of every one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they may employ.
