A web accelerator is a server-side program that speeds up a site. Such a piece of software may operate in different ways based on the website content, but in the typical case all such programs cache content and deliver it instead of the web server. That is valid for both static and dynamic Internet sites since the cached content may be simple text or database responses and the benefit of using a web accelerator isn't simply the faster loading website, but also the lessened overall load on the machine. This way, you'll be able to use a lower-end hosting solution which will also cost less while your site visitors could still enjoy fast browsing speeds. Handful of service providers provide web accelerators with their hosting plans and they typically offer just 1, while we offer 3 different ones that'll enable you to improve the performance of any kind of Internet site significantly.

Web Accelerators in Cloud Hosting

If you host your sites in a cloud hosting account from our firm, you'll have three popular web accelerators to choose from if you would like to improve the sites' efficiency. Memcached is employed for database-driven sites and it caches the calls and requests between an Internet site and its database, so it can reduce the load of such Internet sites tremendously. Varnish caches whole pages the first time a site visitor opens them and delivers them from there on if the same site visitor opens them again. It does that considerably faster than the server, so it can easily increase the loading speed of any website nearly 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time programs which works on the hosting server and not inside the visitor's browser. It is used for accommodation booking, chats and other apps where loads of data needs to be processed in real time. The availability of those accelerators depends on the hosting plan which you pick - they might come by default or as an upgrade. In each case, you'll be able to include more instances or more memory for each of them.

Web Accelerators in VPS Servers

In the event that you choose your VPS server to be integrated with the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to use Varnish, Memcached and Node.js - three of the most commonly used web accelerators. Varnish caches pages the first time they're visited and provides them each time the same person visits them again, which will boost any type of website several times. Memcached is employed for dynamic script applications like Joomla and WordPress as it caches database requests and responses, thus the database server shall not need to process the very same webpage each and every time visitors open it if the same content should be displayed. Node.js is a platform for building real-time programs such as online games and chats. It functions much quicker than similar platforms because it processes the information in little pieces all the time and doesn't wait for users to submit a sizable piece of data that will need more time to be processed. The 3 web accelerators are available with all Hepsia-based VPS plans and come with several hundred megabytes of dedicated memory.
