A web accelerator is a server-side application that quickens a website. Such a piece of software may function 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's valid for both static and dynamic Internet sites because the cached content could be simple text or database responses and the reward of using a web accelerator isn't only the faster loading website, but also the smaller overall load on the machine. This way, you can use a lower-end hosting plan that'll also cost less while your site visitors can still enjoy fast browsing speeds. Handful of companies supply web accelerators with their hosting deals and they frequently offer just one, while we offer three different ones that will allow you to enhance the performance of any kind of website noticeably.
Web Accelerators in Cloud Web Hosting
We provide 3 of the most popular web accelerators together with our cloud web hosting solutions and depending on what plan you will choose when you sign up, they might already be available or they may be an optional upgrade. Varnish is the most popular one of them and it can be used for any type of site. It caches the pages the first time a site visitor opens them and delivers them at a much faster speed compared to the hosting server every time that a website visitor opens them again. Memcached is used to cache API and database calls, so it can boost the speed of dynamic sites such as online stores, community forums or social networks. Node.js is employed for scalable web apps and it works in real-time, which makes it perfect for server-side data processing - chats, browser games, booking portals, and many others. You'll be able to pick just how much memory these accelerators shall employ and how many instances of each will run from your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers
You shall be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the Internet sites hosted within your semi-dedicated server account depending on the nature of the site content. Memcached, for example, caches database requests, therefore it's an excellent choice for any script application like WordPress or Joomla. That way, the database hosting server won't need to process the same request if multiple users open a site with the same content. Varnish is very similar, but it is a general-purpose accelerator because it caches any kind of content the first time a guest opens an Internet site. In case that page is opened again by the same visitor, it will be provided by Varnish at a much better speed compared to the hosting server. Employing this web accelerator can minimize the load produced by your Internet sites drastically. Last, but not least, Node.js will enable you to create scalable web programs such as hotel booking Internet sites or chats. Its advantage over comparable platforms is that it does not wait for a customer to submit a big piece of data, but processes whatever the user is typing in real-time. The three web accelerators are available within the Hepsia CP and you will be able to pick how many instances of every one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they'll use.
