A web accelerator is an application that accelerates a site, typically by caching its content. There are various sorts of accelerators, but in the common case such apps cache static content or database responses and provide them in place of the server, hence improving the performance of a site drastically. The latter is possible because accelerator applications work faster than a server and not simply will an Internet site work better, but the server load will also minimize, which will enable you to run heavy sites with less resources. We provide three web accelerators with our hosting packages, which will enable you to speed up any kind of Internet site. In comparison, most Internet hosting companies do not offer any web accelerators or provide only 1, which limits your choice of web applications in the event that you would like to use such software.

Web Accelerators in Shared Hosting

In case you buy one of our shared hosting plans, you shall have 3 widely used web accelerators at your disposal and you shall be able to access them directly through the Hepsia CP that comes with our plans. Varnish is one of the most widely used ones and it could tremendously speed up any website since it caches the pages that a visitor opens for the first time and delivers them every time that guest opens them again. Given that Varnish operates way quicker than any web server, the loading speed of any Internet site using the accelerator shall increase considerably. Memcached is employed to cache database and API calls and responses between an Internet site visitor and a web server, so it is much like Varnish, but is used mainly for database-driven websites. Since the site will connect to its database much less, the overall hosting server load will be minimized significantly. The third accelerator, Node.js, is used for scalable online applications like chats and booking sites since it processes info in real time as soon as it is entered on the site by the users. Dependant upon the package you select, these accelerators may be available or may be an optional upgrade.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Hosting

In case you choose Hepsia as the hosting CP for your new dedicated server, you shall have Memcached, Varnish and Node.js at your disposal for accelerating your sites. Memcached can decrease the load on the hosting server by lowering the queries your script-driven sites make since it caches database responses. This web accelerator is great for dynamic sites created with WordPress, Joomla and very similar scripts. Varnish, which is known as an HTTP reverse proxy, caches entire webpages the first time a new visitor opens them. It can be employed to speed up any type of site since it delivers the cached content much faster than the hosting server each time a guest opens the same webpage again. You can employ Node.js for online programs which call for real-time server-client interaction like online chats or booking Internet sites. Different from other platforms which await the user to enter everything on a form, Node.js processes the info piece by piece as the user fills each box, so it operates considerably quicker and more efficiently. All dedicated server solutions come with several gigabytes of memory dedicated to those 3 web accelerators.
