A web accelerator is a server-side program which speeds up a website. Such a piece of software may operate in different ways depending upon the site content, but in the general situation all such programs cache content and deliver it instead of the hosting server. That is valid for both static and dynamic sites because the cached content can be simple text or database responses and the advantage of using a web accelerator isn't simply the faster loading site, but also the reduced overall load on the machine. This way, you'll be able to employ a lower-end hosting plan that'll also cost less while your website visitors will be able to still enjoy high browsing speeds. Several service providers supply web accelerators with their hosting plans and they typically offer just 1, while we offer 3 different ones which will permit you to enhance the performance of any kind of website significantly.
Web Accelerators in Hosting
If you buy one of our hosting solutions, you'll have 3 well-known web accelerators at your disposal and you'll be able to access them directly using the Hepsia CP that comes with our packages. Varnish is one of the most popular ones and it could significantly speed up any site since it caches the web pages which a site visitor opens for the first time and delivers them every time that website visitor opens them again. Because Varnish operates faster than any web server, the loading speed of any Internet site using the accelerator will raise considerably. Memcached is used to cache database and API calls and responses between a website visitor and a server, so it is similar to Varnish, but is employed predominantly for database-driven websites. Since the site will connect to its database much less, the overall hosting server load will be minimized significantly. The last accelerator, Node.js, is used for scalable online programs including chats and booking websites because it processes data in real time the moment it is entered on the site by the users. Depending on the plan you choose, these accelerators might be available or might be an optional upgrade.
