A web accelerator is a server-side application which speeds up a website. Such a piece of software may work in different ways depending upon the site content, but in the typical case all such applications cache content and deliver it instead of the hosting server. This is valid for both dynamic and static Internet sites because the cached content could be simple text or database responses and the advantage of using a web accelerator isn't only the faster loading website, but also the decreased overall load on the web server. That way, you can employ a lower-end hosting package that'll also cost less while your visitors will be able to still enjoy superior browsing speeds. Few firms offer web accelerators with their hosting plans and they usually offer only 1, while we offer 3 different ones which will allow you to enhance the performance of any type of website significantly.

Web Accelerators in Cloud Hosting

When you acquire one of our cloud hosting plans, you shall have three popular web accelerators at your disposal and you will be able to access them directly using the Hepsia CP which is included with our solutions. Varnish is one of the most well-known ones and it can greatly increase the speed of any Internet site because it caches the pages a site visitor opens for the first time and delivers them each and every time that guest opens them again. Since Varnish operates noticeably faster than any server, the loading speed of any site using the accelerator will grow substantially. Memcached is employed to cache database and API calls and responses between a site visitor and a server, so it is similar to Varnish, but is used mainly for database-driven Internet sites. Considering that the site shall connect to its database significantly less, the overall web server load shall be minimized considerably. The third accelerator, Node.js, is employed for scalable online apps including chats and booking sites because it processes information in real time as soon as it is entered on the webpage by the users. Based on the plan you select, these accelerators may be available or could be an optional upgrade.
