A web accelerator is a program that speeds up an Internet site, usually by caching its content. There are different kinds of accelerators, but in the typical case such apps cache static content or database responses and deliver them in place of the hosting server, thus increasing the performance of a website considerably. The latter can be done because accelerator programs work faster than a server and not only will a site operate better, but the server load will also decline, which will enable you to run heavy Internet sites with less resources. We provide 3 web accelerators with our hosting packages, which will permit you to accelerate any sort of Internet site. In comparison, most website hosting service providers don't offer any web accelerators or offer one, which limits your choice of web applications in case you want to employ this type of software.
Web Accelerators in Hosting
Our hosting plans feature 3 web accelerators that you will be able to employ depending on the Internet sites which you would like to run. Memcached is employed to cache database or API calls and responses, which can greatly improve the efficiency of dynamic websites. Varnish is a popular HTTP accelerator which caches pages and provides them to the visitors faster than the web server after the first time they open them. Node.js is an event-driven platform employed for scalable real-time apps such as booking sites. With respect to the Internet hosting package you choose, these 3 applications might already be included or may be optional upgrades. In either case, you'll be able to select how many instances of each one of them will be at your disposal and what amount of memory they should employ. These accelerators are supplied only by several web hosting providers, including ours, and they can easily boost the speed of your web programs considerably.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers Hosting
If you obtain a dedicated server from our company and you pick Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel, you will be able to use Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your sites. All solutions include several gigabytes of memory dedicated to those accelerators and the actual amount depends on the package 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 use it for a script-driven website, not simply will the Internet site work faster, but also the load on the hosting server will minimize since there will be less database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it is not limited to databases. Rather, it caches entire websites once a website 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 faster than any hosting server, the efficiency of a site using this accelerator may increase as much as 300%.
