A web accelerator is a server-side application which speeds up a website. Such a piece of software may operate in different ways depending on the website content, but in the typical case all such programs cache content and deliver it instead of the server. That is valid for both dynamic and static sites since the cached content could be simple text or database responses and the advantage of using a web accelerator is not only the faster loading Internet site, but also the smaller overall load on the machine. This way, you can employ a lower-end hosting package which will also cost less while your website visitors can still enjoy superior browsing speeds. Several companies provide web accelerators with their hosting packages and they usually offer only 1, while we offer three different ones that'll enable you to enhance the performance of any sort of website substantially.
Web Accelerators in Cloud Hosting
Our cloud hosting solutions come with 3 web accelerators that you can use depending on the sites that you would like to run. Memcached is employed to cache database or API calls and responses, which can significantly enhance the performance of dynamic websites. Varnish is a popular HTTP accelerator that caches pages and provides them to the website visitors much faster than the hosting server after the first time they open them. Node.js is an event-driven platform used for scalable real-time programs for example booking websites. Depending upon the hosting package you choose, these 3 applications could already be included or could be optional upgrades. In either case, you will be able to pick how many instances of each of them will be at your disposal and what amount of memory they ought to use. These accelerators are supplied only by several hosting firms, including ours, and they could boost the speed of your web apps drastically.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers
If you acquire a dedicated server from our company and you choose Hepsia as the hosting CP, you shall be able to use Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your websites. All plans come with several gigabytes of memory dedicated to those accelerators and the actual amount depends on the plan you choose. Node.js is employed for scalable online apps like browser games or hotel booking and it processes the info in real time as the user enters it, which makes it much faster than very similar platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you employ it for a script-driven website, not only will the Internet site speed up, but also the load on the hosting server will reduce as there will be less database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it's not limited to databases. Rather, it caches whole pages once a visitor opens them and delivers them instead of the server every time the same visitor opens them afterwards. Due to the fact that Varnish processes web requests much quicker than any hosting server, the performance of a site using this accelerator could increase nearly 300%.
