What is Apachebooster?
Apachebooster, was basically developed in order to elevate the server's functioning by upgrading the performance of Apache Software. Integrated with Nginx and Varnish, Apachebooster enhances the working capability of Apache Software which in turn helps the servers to become faster in their processing. It caches both static and dynamic data (using Nginx and Varnish) and thus boosts the website performance.
Easy to install and with 'no maintenance', Apachebooster offers the optimal solution to a low performing server. Once it gets installed in the server, one does not have to worry anymore in terms of the server's working. Through Apachebooster, we are presenting an unparalleled quality product that has no match.
Additional Benefits of Apachebooster:
Apachebooster makes the best use of cache memory and hence it greatly helps in saving the memory consumption in the webserver.
Apachebooster supports gzip compression for static files and this helps the fast and easy transfer of data.
Apachebooster act as a first level of protection against DDOS.
It monitors real time bandwidth and connection stats. One can get these details through the interface seen in WHM.
Disk operations will be reduced if Apachebooster is used and this in turn helps to reduce the server load.

What makes our plugin unique?
As compared to other similar plugins how our plugin creates a difference, and what exactly makes it a standout among the rest. The curiousity is natural, but below is the precise explanation to break the ice!
Some plugins make use of Nginx, which can enhance the application delivery, by caching the static contents. But they may not be that effective, while serving the dynamic contents. Some others take the advantage of Varnish cache, which they use for caching the website contents. Varnish visits a server once to cache the page, then all the future requests for the same page will be served by its cache. But, Varnish does not support SSL/TLS termination and hence all those websites which use Varnish and HTTPS would remain run without dynamic content caching.
Since ApacheBooster's v3.0 release, we have added SSL/TLS termination using Nginx and Varnish PROXY protocol support. This means that Nginx handles the SSL encryption/decryption and forwards the request to the Varnish service and Varnish serves the rest!
When a user accesses the site over HTTPS protocol, Nginx forwards the request to Varnish and if Varnish already has the content in its cache it immediately responds with that content. Else, Varnish requests the content from Apache (if necessary), caches it and then transfers the content to Nginx. Nginx encrypts the content and sends it to the user. This is how our plugin works and hence it is more advantageous.
It is fast in serving both the static and dynamic contents.
It makes use of encryption, which enhances security.
Works very well with HTTPS protocol too.
