A web accelerator is a piece of software that speeds up a website usually by caching content and delivering it instead of the web server. Such apps could be used for both dynamic and static Internet sites as there are different accelerators that can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The best thing about employing a web accelerator is that a given site will perform considerably faster without using extra system resources. Quite the opposite, this type of a website will require much less resources to work since the web accelerator will handle most requests instead of the server. In contrast to many companies which do not offer web accelerators with their packages or offer only one, we offer 3 different ones that'll permit you to speed up your sites irrespective of their type or content.

Web Accelerators in Shared Web Hosting

If you host your sites in a shared web hosting account from us, you will have 3 popular web accelerators to select from if you'd like to improve the sites' efficiency. Memcached is used for database-driven Internet sites and it caches the calls and requests between an Internet site and its database, so it could lessen the load of such Internet sites tremendously. Varnish caches entire webpages the first time a website visitor opens them and provides them from there on if the same site visitor opens them again. It does that much more quickly than the server, so it can increase the loading speed of any Internet site nearly 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time applications which operates on the web server and not within the visitor's web browser. It is employed for accommodation booking, chats and other applications where a lot of data has to be processed in real time. The availability of these accelerators depends upon the hosting package that you pick - they might come by default or as an upgrade. In both cases, you'll be able to include more instances or more memory for every one of them.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

You shall be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the websites hosted inside your semi-dedicated server account based on the nature of the website content. Memcached, for example, caches database requests, so it is a superb option for any script application such as WordPress or Joomla. That way, the database hosting server will not need to process the exact same request if a number of users open a website with the same content. Varnish is similar, but it's a general-purpose accelerator because it caches any type of content the first time a visitor opens a page. If that webpage is opened again by the very same website visitor, it'll be provided by Varnish at a much higher speed compared to the server. Employing this web accelerator shall minimize the load generated by your sites tremendously. Last, but not least, Node.js will allow you to create scalable web applications like hotel booking sites or chats. Its advantage over similar platforms is that it doesn't wait for a client to submit a sizable piece of information, but processes whatever the customer is inputting in real-time. The three web accelerators are available within the Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to select how many instances of every one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they may use.
