A web accelerator is a server-side application that quickens a site. Such a piece of software could work in different ways depending on the website content, but in the general situation all such applications cache content and deliver it instead of the web server. That is valid for both static and dynamic websites as the cached content may be simple text or database responses and the advantage of employing a web accelerator is not just the faster loading website, but also the minimized overall load on the hosting server. This way, you can employ a lower-end hosting package that will also cost less while your visitors will be able to still enjoy fast browsing speeds. Several service providers offer web accelerators with their hosting packages and they usually offer only 1, while we offer 3 different ones which will permit you to boost the performance of any kind of Internet site tremendously.

Web Accelerators in Cloud Hosting

In case you acquire one of our cloud hosting plans, you will have three well-known web accelerators at your disposal and you'll be able to access them directly via the Hepsia CP that is included with our plans. Varnish is one of the most widely used ones and it can greatly increase the speed of any site because it caches the pages a visitor opens for the first time and delivers them each time that visitor opens them again. Given that Varnish works considerably faster than any hosting server, the loading speed of any website using the accelerator shall increase noticeably. Memcached is employed to cache database and API calls and responses between an Internet site visitor and a web server, so it is comparable to Varnish, but is employed largely for database-driven Internet sites. Considering that the website will connect to its database a lot less, the overall web server load shall be reduced notably. The last accelerator, Node.js, is employed for scalable online apps like chats and booking websites since it processes data in real time the moment it is entered on the site by the users. Dependant upon the plan you pick, these accelerators could be available or might be an optional upgrade.
