A web accelerator is a piece of software that speeds up a site generally by caching content and delivering it instead of the hosting server. Such applications can be employed for both dynamic and static Internet sites because there are various accelerators which can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The best thing about using a web accelerator is that a given Internet site will perform substantially faster without employing additional system resources. Just the opposite, such a site will require a lesser amount of resources to work because the web accelerator will tackle most requests instead of the server. Contrary to many firms that do not offer web accelerators with their solutions or offer only 1, we offer three different ones that will permit you to speed up your Internet sites regardless of their style or content.

Web Accelerators in Website Hosting

In case you host your Internet sites inside a website hosting account from us, you shall have 3 popular web accelerators to select from if you'd like to boost the sites' efficiency. Memcached is used for database-driven sites and it caches the calls and requests between a website and its database, so it can decrease the load of such Internet sites tremendously. Varnish caches entire webpages the first time a site visitor opens them and provides them from there on if the same website visitor opens them again. It does that considerably faster than the web server, so it could boost the loading speed of any site approximately 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time apps which operates on the hosting server and not within the visitor's browser. It's employed for accommodation booking, chats and other programs where plenty of data has to be processed in real time. The availability of the accelerators depends on the hosting package which you pick - they could come by default or as an upgrade. In each case, you will be able to include more instances or more memory for each of them.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

You shall be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the sites hosted within your semi-dedicated server account in accordance with the nature of the website content. Memcached, in particular, caches database requests, so it is a great choice for any script app like WordPress or Joomla. That way, the database web server shall not have to process exactly the same request if many users open a website with the same content. Varnish is very similar, but it is a general-purpose accelerator since it caches any kind of content the first time a website visitor opens a page. In case this page is opened again by the exact same visitor, it shall be provided by Varnish at a greater speed compared to the web server. Employing this web accelerator will lessen the load produced by your Internet sites substantially. Last, but not least, Node.js will permit you to produce scalable web applications like hotel booking websites or chats. Its advantage over comparable platforms is that it does not wait for a customer to submit a sizable piece of information, but processes whatever the customer is entering in real-time. The three web accelerators are available within the Hepsia Control Panel and you shall be able to select how many instances of each one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they'll employ.
