A web accelerator is an application which speeds up a site, usually by caching its content. There are many kinds of accelerators, but in the general case this sort of programs cache static content or database responses and provide them in place of the server, as a consequence improving the performance of a site drastically. The latter can be done because accelerator applications work faster than a hosting server and not only will a website work better, but the server load shall also lessen, which will permit you to run heavy websites with less system resources. We offer 3 web accelerators with our hosting solutions, which will allow you to speed up any type of website. In comparison, most hosting businesses do not provide any web accelerators or offer only 1, which limits your choice of web applications in case you want to employ this type of software.

Web Accelerators in Cloud Website Hosting

If you host your sites within a cloud website hosting account from our company, you will have three popular web accelerators to pick from if you'd like to boost the sites' performance. Memcached is employed for database-driven websites and it caches the calls and requests between an Internet site and its database, so it can lessen the load of such sites considerably. Varnish caches entire webpages the first time a website visitor opens them and provides them from there on if the same site visitor opens them again. It does that considerably faster than the web server, so it can easily raise the loading speed of any website as much as 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time apps which operates on the hosting server and not within the visitor's Internet browser. It's employed for accommodation booking, chats and other applications where loads of data needs to be processed in real time. The availability of these accelerators depends on the hosting solution that you pick - they might come by default or as an upgrade. In both cases, you will be able to add more instances or more memory for each of them.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Hosting

In case you choose Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel for your new dedicated server, you will have Memcached, Varnish and Node.js available for accelerating your Internet sites. Memcached will be able to decrease the load on the server by lowering the queries your script-driven websites make since it caches database responses. This web accelerator is great for dynamic Internet sites developed with WordPress, Joomla and very similar scripts. Varnish, which is known as an HTTP reverse proxy, caches entire sites the first time a new guest opens them. It can be employed to speed up any type of site as it delivers the cached content considerably faster than the web server each time a customer opens the same webpage again. You can use Node.js for online applications that call for real-time server-client interaction such as online chats or booking Internet sites. Different from other platforms that wait for the user to fill everything on a form, Node.js processes the information gradually as the user fills each and every box, so it operates faster and more efficiently. All dedicated server solutions include several gigabytes of memory dedicated to these 3 web accelerators.
