A web accelerator is a server-side application that accelerates an Internet site. Such a piece of software could function in different ways depending on the website content, but in the general case all such apps cache content and deliver it instead of the web server. That's valid for both static and dynamic Internet sites because the cached content can be simple text or database responses and the advantage of using a web accelerator isn't just the faster loading site, but also the reduced overall load on the web server. This way, you may employ a lower-end hosting package that will also cost less while your website visitors can still enjoy superior browsing speeds. Few businesses provide web accelerators with their hosting deals and they often offer only one, while we offer 3 different ones that'll enable you to boost the performance of any sort of Internet site significantly.
Web Accelerators in Web Hosting
When you host your websites within a web hosting account from our firm, you'll have three popular web accelerators to select from if you would like to enhance the sites' functionality. Memcached is employed for database-driven Internet sites and it caches the calls and requests between an Internet site and its database, so it could reduce the load of such sites substantially. Varnish caches whole web pages the first time a site visitor opens them and delivers them from there on if the same visitor opens them again. It does that much faster than the server, so it could increase the loading speed of any website as much as 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time applications which works on the server and not in the visitor's web browser. It is employed for accommodation booking, chats and other applications where loads of data needs to be processed in real time. The availability of those accelerators depends on the hosting solution that you select - they might come by default or as an upgrade. In each case, you shall be able to include more instances or more memory for each of them.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers
In case you choose Hepsia as the hosting CP for your new dedicated server, you'll have Memcached, Varnish and Node.js at your disposal for increasing the speed of your Internet sites. Memcached can easily lessen the load on the web server by lowering the queries your script-driven Internet sites make because it caches database responses. This web accelerator is ideal for dynamic Internet sites created with WordPress, Joomla and similar scripts. Varnish, which is referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy, caches whole webpages the first time a new website visitor opens them. It can be employed to speed up any type of site as it provides the cached content much faster than the server each time a visitor opens the same page again. You could employ Node.js for online programs that require real-time server-client interaction like online chats or booking websites. Different from other platforms that await the user to input everything on a form, Node.js processes the info piece by piece as the user fills each and every box, so it operates much faster and more efficiently. All dedicated server plans feature several gigabytes of memory dedicated to these three web accelerators.
