A web accelerator is an application which quickens a website, usually by caching its content. There are many types of accelerators, but in the typical case this kind of programs cache static content or database responses and supply them in lieu of the hosting server, as a consequence increasing the performance of a site considerably. The latter is possible because accelerator applications work faster than a hosting server and not only will a site operate better, but the server load will also decrease, which will allow you to run heavy sites with less resources. We offer 3 web accelerators with our hosting plans, which will enable you to increase the speed of any type of Internet site. In comparison, most Internet hosting providers do not offer any web accelerators or provide one, which limits your choice of web applications if you want to employ such software.

Web Accelerators in Cloud Hosting

Our cloud hosting packages include 3 web accelerators that you can employ depending on the websites which you would like to run. Memcached is used to cache database or API calls and responses, which could drastically enhance the performance of dynamic sites. Varnish is a popular HTTP accelerator which caches pages and delivers them to the site visitors considerably quicker than the hosting server after the first time they open them. Node.js is an event-driven platform employed for scalable real-time applications for example booking sites. With respect to the Internet hosting plan you pick, these three apps might already be included or may be optional upgrades. In either case, you shall be able to pick how many instances of every one of them will be at your disposal and how much memory they should employ. These accelerators are offered only by a handful of web hosting providers, including ours, and they can easily raise the speed of your web apps significantly.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

Memcached, Varnish and Node.js are available with all dedicated servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and depending on the plan that you select, you will also have several gigabytes of dedicated memory for them. Memcached will reduce the server load by lowering the amount of queries that need to be handled because it caches database calls and responses. You'll be able to use it on any website which uses an API or a database - as an illustration, any site created with WordPress or Joomla. Varnish can easily improve the performance of any type of Internet site by caching whole webpages the first time a visitor opens them. The accelerator provides the webpages if the same visitor opens them later on and given that it does that much faster than the web server, the visitor will be able to surf your site at least a few times faster. For this reason Varnish is sometimes referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is an innovative platform which will enable you to develop booking sites, web chats and other programs where real-time server-user interaction is necessary. It processes the info in tiny parts as the user fills different boxes and does not wait for all boxes to be filled and processed as one sizeable piece of data, which makes Node.js much quicker than similar applications.
