A web accelerator is a server-side application which speeds up a website. Such a piece of software could function in different ways depending upon the website content, but in the typical situation all such applications cache content and deliver it instead of the web server. That is valid for both dynamic and static websites since the cached content can be simple text or database responses and the advantage of using a web accelerator isn't only the faster loading site, but also the minimized overall load on the machine. This way, you can use a lower-end hosting solution that will also cost less while your visitors could still enjoy fast browsing speeds. Handful of service providers provide web accelerators with their hosting packages and they typically offer only 1, while we offer 3 different ones that will permit you to enhance the performance of any type of website significantly.

Web Accelerators in Website Hosting

When you purchase one of our website hosting packages, you will have three popular web accelerators at your disposal and you shall be able to access them directly via the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with our solutions. Varnish is one of the most widely used ones and it could considerably increase the speed of any site as it caches the web pages that a website visitor opens for the first time and provides them every time that guest opens them again. Given that Varnish operates faster than any server, the loading speed of any Internet site using the accelerator will improve significantly. Memcached is used to cache database and API calls and responses between a site visitor and a server, so it is comparable to Varnish, but is employed mainly for database-driven sites. Because the site shall connect to its database much less, the overall hosting server load shall be reduced significantly. The last accelerator, Node.js, is employed for scalable online applications including chats and booking sites since it processes data in real time the instant it is entered on the website by the users. Based on the plan you select, these accelerators might be available or may be an optional upgrade.
