What exactly do web accelerators do? What can you do to be able to improve your site's loading speed?
A web accelerator is a software application which speeds up a site generally by caching content and delivering it instead of the web server. Such programs could be employed for both dynamic and static sites because there are various accelerators that can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The main advantage of using a web accelerator is that a given website shall perform significantly faster without employing additional system resources. Quite the opposite, such a site will need significantly less resources to work as the web accelerator will tackle most requests instead of the server. Unlike many companies that don't offer web accelerators with their packages or offer just one, we offer three different ones that'll allow you to speed up your sites regardless of their kind or content.
Web Accelerators in Cloud Web Hosting
In case you acquire one of our cloud web hosting
packages, you will have three widely used web accelerators at your disposal and you'll be able to access them directly through the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with our plans. Varnish is one of the most well-known ones and it could considerably increase the speed of any site because it caches the pages which a site visitor opens for the first time and provides them each and every time that visitor opens them again. Because Varnish functions way quicker than any web server, the loading speed of any site using the accelerator will improve significantly. Memcached is employed to cache database and API calls and responses between a visitor and a web server, so it is much like Varnish, but is employed mainly for database-driven Internet sites. Because the site will connect to its database a lot less, the overall server load will be decreased considerably. The last accelerator, Node.js, is used for scalable online applications such as chats and booking Internet sites because it processes info in real time the instant it is entered on the website by the users. Based on the plan you pick, these accelerators could be available or could be an optional upgrade.
