A web accelerator is a software program that speeds up an Internet site usually by caching content and supplying it instead of the hosting server. Such apps can be used for both dynamic and static sites since there are different accelerators that can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The benefit of using a web accelerator is that a given Internet site shall perform considerably faster without using additional system resources. Quite the opposite, this kind of a website will need a lesser amount of resources to work because the web accelerator will deal with most requests rather than the hosting server. Contrary to many businesses which do not offer web accelerators with their plans or offer only 1, we offer three different ones that will enable you to speed up your websites whatever their style or content.

Web Accelerators in Website Hosting

If you host your Internet sites in a website hosting account from our company, you'll have three popular web accelerators to select from if you'd like to enhance the sites' functionality. Memcached is used for database-driven sites and it caches the calls and requests between an Internet site and its database, so it could reduce the load of such websites substantially. Varnish caches whole webpages the first time a visitor opens them and provides them from there on if the same guest opens them again. It does that much faster than the web server, so it could increase the loading speed of any site up to 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time programs that functions on the web server and not in the visitor's Internet browser. It's used for accommodation booking, chats and other programs where lots of data has to be processed in real time. The availability of these accelerators depends upon the hosting plan which you choose - they could come by default or as an upgrade. In both cases, you shall be able to add more instances or more memory for each of them.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Hosting

Memcached, Node.js and Varnish are offered by default with all of our dedicated servers that are ordered with Hepsia as the Internet hosting Control Panel. These three web accelerators offer several gbs of dedicated memory and you could use them to speed up any type of website. Memcached can drastically minimize the load on the server if you have script-driven Internet sites as it caches database responses, so it decreases the amount of database queries the web server has to deal with. Node.js shall enable you to create scalable programs with real-time user-server interaction such as chats or dining booking Internet sites. Its advantage over very similar platforms is that it processes information as soon as the user enters it, so all the information is taken care of quicker and in small bits. Varnish caches whole pages the first time a visitor opens them and provides them every time the same visitor opens them again, which makes it a universal accelerator for any sort of Internet sites. As it operates quicker than any hosting server, it can speed up a website at least several times and for that reason, Varnish is one of the most widely used web accelerators on the market.
