A web accelerator is a program which speeds up a website, typically by caching its content. There are different kinds of accelerators, but in the typical case this kind of programs cache static content or database responses and deliver them in lieu of the hosting server, therefore enhancing the performance of a site significantly. The latter is achievable because accelerator applications work faster than a web server and not only will a website function better, but the server load will also decrease, which will allow you to run heavy Internet sites with less resources. We provide three web accelerators with our hosting solutions, which will permit you to speed up any sort of Internet site. In comparison, most web hosting companies don't offer any web accelerators or provide only 1, which limits your choice of web applications in the event that you want to use this kind of software.

Web Accelerators in Web Hosting

In case you get one of our web hosting solutions, you'll have three popular web accelerators at your disposal and you'll be able to access them directly via the Hepsia CP which is included with our plans. Varnish is one of the most well-known ones and it could significantly speed up any Internet site since it caches the pages a website visitor opens for the first time and provides them each and every time that website visitor opens them again. Given that Varnish operates noticeably faster than any web server, the loading speed of any website using the accelerator shall improve considerably. Memcached is employed to cache database and API calls and responses between a site visitor and a server, so it's much like Varnish, but is employed predominantly for database-driven sites. Because the Internet site shall connect to its database significantly less, the overall hosting server load shall be minimized notably. The 3rd accelerator, Node.js, is employed for scalable online programs including chats and booking sites as it processes information in real time as soon as it is entered on the site by the users. Depending on the plan you select, these accelerators could be available or might be an optional upgrade.
