A web accelerator is a server-side application that quickens a website. Such a piece of software could work in different ways depending on 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 static and dynamic websites as the cached content can be simple text or database responses and the benefit of using a web accelerator is not just the faster loading website, but also the minimized overall load on the hosting server. This way, you could employ a lower-end hosting package that'll also cost less while your site visitors will be able to still enjoy superior browsing speeds. Few companies provide web accelerators with their hosting packages and they typically offer only one, while we offer three different ones that will enable you to enhance the performance of any type of Internet site substantially.

Web Accelerators in Shared Hosting

When you purchase one of our shared hosting packages, you'll have three popular web accelerators at your disposal and you'll be able to access them directly through the Hepsia Control Panel which is included with our plans. Varnish is one of the most well-known ones and it can tremendously accelerate any Internet site because it caches the web pages that a site visitor opens for the first time and provides them each time that guest opens them again. Given that Varnish functions considerably faster than any server, the loading speed of any website using the accelerator shall increase significantly. Memcached is employed to cache database and API calls and responses between a website visitor and a web server, so it is comparable to Varnish, but is used largely for database-driven websites. Considering that the Internet site shall connect to its database significantly less, the overall server load shall be minimized considerably. The third accelerator, Node.js, is employed for scalable online applications such as chats and booking websites because it processes info in real time the moment it is entered on the site by the users. Based on the plan you choose, these accelerators could be available or might be an optional upgrade.
