A web accelerator is a server-side application which accelerates a site. Such a piece of software may operate in different ways depending upon the site content, but in the general case all such programs cache content and deliver it instead of the server. That's valid for both static and dynamic sites since the cached content may be simple text or database responses and the benefit of employing a web accelerator is not simply the faster loading site, but also the reduced overall load on the machine. That way, you can employ a lower-end hosting solution that will also cost less while your visitors can still enjoy high browsing speeds. Few companies supply web accelerators with their hosting deals and they typically offer only one, while we offer 3 different ones that will allow you to improve the performance of any sort of site considerably.

Web Accelerators in Hosting

We offer three of the most well-known web accelerators along with our hosting packages and based upon what plan you'll select when you sign up, they may already be available or they could be an optional upgrade. Varnish is the most well-known one of them and it may be employed for any type of site. It caches the pages the first time a visitor opens them and delivers them at a much faster speed compared to the hosting server every time that a visitor opens them again. Memcached is employed to cache API and database calls, so it can easily boost the speed of dynamic sites such as online stores, discussion boards or social networks. Node.js is employed for scalable web applications and it functions in real-time, which makes it perfect for server-side data processing - chats, browser games, booking portals, and many others. You shall be able to select how much memory these accelerators shall use and how many instances of each shall run from your Hepsia Internet hosting Control Panel.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

In case you acquire a dedicated server from us and you choose Hepsia as the hosting CP, you will be able to employ Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your Internet sites. All packages come with several gigabytes of memory dedicated to these accelerators and the exact amount depends on the package deal you select. Node.js is employed for scalable online applications such as browser games or hotel booking and it processes the data in real time as the client enters it, which makes it considerably faster than similar platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you use it for a script-driven site, not only will the Internet site speed up, but also the load on the hosting server will decrease because there will be less database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it's not at all limited to databases. Instead, it caches entire web pages once a visitor opens them and delivers them instead of the hosting server each time the same visitor opens them later. Because Varnish processes web requests considerably faster than any hosting server, the efficiency of a site using this accelerator can increase nearly 300%.
