A web accelerator is a server-side program which accelerates a website. Such a piece of software may work in different ways depending on the site content, but in the typical case all such apps cache content and deliver it instead of the web server. That is valid for both static and dynamic websites as the cached content may be simple text or database responses and the benefit of using a web accelerator isn't just the faster loading website, but also the lessened overall load on the hosting server. That way, you may employ a lower-end hosting plan which will also cost less while your website visitors can still enjoy high browsing speeds. Several service providers offer web accelerators with their hosting plans and they frequently offer just 1, while we offer three different ones which will permit you to enhance the performance of any type of Internet site significantly.

Web Accelerators in Shared Web Hosting

If you acquire one of our shared web hosting packages, you will have three popular web accelerators at your disposal and you'll be able to access them directly through the Hepsia CP that is included with our plans. Varnish is one of the most widely used ones and it can tremendously increase the speed of any website because it caches the pages that a website visitor opens for the first time and provides them every time that website visitor opens them again. Since Varnish works way quicker than any server, the loading speed of any site using the accelerator will increase noticeably. Memcached is used to cache database and API calls and responses between a website visitor and a web server, so it's comparable to Varnish, but is used mainly for database-driven sites. Since the website will connect to its database a lot less, the overall web server load shall be decreased significantly. The last accelerator, Node.js, is used for scalable online apps like chats and booking Internet sites since it processes info in real time as soon as it is entered on the webpage by the users. Dependant upon the package you choose, these accelerators could be available or might be an optional upgrade.
