A web accelerator is a server-side application that accelerates a site. Such a piece of software can operate in different ways based on the website content, but in the typical situation all such apps cache content and deliver it instead of the web server. That's valid for both dynamic and static Internet sites since the cached content can be simple text or database responses and the advantage of employing a web accelerator isn't only the faster loading website, but also the minimized overall load on the web server. That way, you'll be able to use a lower-end hosting plan that'll also cost less while your visitors could still enjoy fast browsing speeds. Handful of service providers offer web accelerators with their hosting plans and they typically offer just 1, while we offer three different ones that'll allow you to improve the performance of any sort of Internet site considerably.
Web Accelerators in Cloud Hosting
In case you get one of our cloud hosting packages, you'll have three popular web accelerators at your disposal and you'll be able to access them directly via the Hepsia Control Panel which is included with our solutions. Varnish is one of the most well-known ones and it could considerably speed up any Internet site because it caches the web pages that a site visitor opens for the first time and provides them each time that guest opens them again. Since Varnish functions faster than any hosting server, the loading speed of any Internet site using the accelerator will grow significantly. Memcached is employed to cache database and API calls and responses between an Internet site visitor and a hosting server, so it is similar to Varnish, but is employed primarily for database-driven sites. Because the site shall connect to its database a lot less, the overall web server load will be decreased considerably. The third accelerator, Node.js, is used for scalable online applications such as chats and booking websites because it processes information in real time the instant it is entered on the webpage by the users. Dependant upon the package you choose, these accelerators may be available or could be an optional upgrade.
