A web accelerator is a server-side app that speeds up an Internet site. Such a piece of software could work in different ways depending on the website content, but in the typical case all such programs cache content and deliver it instead of the hosting server. That is valid for both dynamic and static sites as the cached content could be simple text or database responses and the advantage of employing a web accelerator is not only the faster loading Internet site, but also the lessened overall load on the hosting server. This way, you can employ a lower-end hosting solution that will also cost less while your visitors will be able to still enjoy high browsing speeds. Handful of service providers offer web accelerators with their hosting deals and they usually offer only 1, while we offer three different ones that will permit you to enhance the performance of any type of Internet site significantly.

Web Accelerators in Cloud Web Hosting

When you purchase one of our cloud web hosting solutions, you will have 3 popular web accelerators at your disposal and you will be able to access them directly via the Hepsia Control Panel that is included with our plans. Varnish is one of the most well-known ones and it could significantly speed up any site as it caches the pages a site visitor opens for the first time and delivers them each time that guest opens them again. Given that Varnish operates noticeably faster than any web server, the loading speed of any website using the accelerator will raise considerably. Memcached is employed to cache database and API calls and responses between an Internet site visitor and a server, so it's similar to Varnish, but is used mainly for database-driven Internet sites. Because the website shall connect to its database much less, the overall web server load will be reduced considerably. The last accelerator, Node.js, is used for scalable online apps including chats and booking Internet sites because it processes information in real time the moment it is entered on the webpage by the users. Based on the plan you select, these accelerators might be available or might be an optional upgrade.
