A web accelerator is a server-side app which speeds up a website. Such a piece of software could work in different ways depending upon the site content, but in the general case all such programs cache content and deliver it instead of the web server. That is valid for both dynamic and static sites as the cached content can be simple text or database responses and the benefit of using a web accelerator is not only the faster loading Internet site, but also the smaller overall load on the server. This way, you'll be able to employ a lower-end hosting solution that will also cost less while your website visitors will be able to still enjoy superior browsing speeds. Handful of firms provide web accelerators with their hosting plans and they frequently offer just 1, while we offer 3 different ones that'll enable you to boost the performance of any kind of website considerably.

Web Accelerators in Shared Hosting

When you host your websites within a shared hosting account from our firm, you'll have 3 popular web accelerators to choose from if you'd like to improve the sites' functionality. Memcached is employed for database-driven websites and it caches the calls and requests between an Internet site and its database, so it can minimize the load of such Internet sites significantly. Varnish caches whole pages the first time a site visitor opens them and delivers them from there on if the same visitor opens them again. It does that much faster than the hosting server, so it can easily increase the loading speed of any Internet site up to 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time applications which works on the hosting server and not inside the visitor's Internet browser. It's employed for accommodation booking, chats and other applications where a lot of data should be processed in real time. The availability of those accelerators depends upon the hosting package that you select - they may come by default or as an upgrade. In both cases, you shall be able to add more instances or more memory for each one of them.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

You shall be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the sites hosted within your semi-dedicated server account in accordance with the nature of the site content. Memcached, for example, caches database requests, so it is a fantastic option for any script app like WordPress or Joomla. That way, the database web server shall not need to process exactly the same request if multiple users open a webpage with the same content. Varnish is very similar, but it is a general-purpose accelerator since it caches any type of content the first time a website visitor opens a page. If that page is opened again by the very same visitor, it will be provided by Varnish at a greater speed compared to the hosting server. Using this web accelerator shall decrease the load created by your Internet sites substantially. Last, but not least, Node.js will permit you to build scalable web apps such as hotel booking websites or chats. Its advantage over similar platforms is that it doesn't wait for a customer to submit a substantial piece of info, but processes whatever the customer is inputting in real-time. The 3 web accelerators are available within the Hepsia CP and you'll be able to pick how many instances of every one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they may use.

Web Accelerators in VPS Servers

In the event that you get a VPS server with the Hepsia CP, you shall be able to employ Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your Internet sites. All 3 accelerators are incorporated in our solutions by default and feature dedicated memory of a few hundred MBs. Node.js is employed to create scalable applications where real-time interaction is required - booking websites, online flash games, chats, etcetera. It processes the information in small pieces as the user is entering it, thus it operates more quickly than other platforms that wait for the end users to enter one sizeable bit of info. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator that works as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it if the same visitor opens the same website again, which could speed any site several times due to the fact that Varnish functions quicker than any server. Memcached is employed for caching API and database responses, so it's ideal for script-driven Internet sites like WordPress and Joomla. This web accelerator can lessen the load on your server as it shall decrease the number of database queries your websites make.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

In case you select Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel for your new dedicated server, you shall have Memcached, Varnish and Node.js readily available for speeding up your sites. Memcached will be able to lessen the load on the server by lowering the queries your script-driven Internet sites make since it caches database responses. This web accelerator is ideal for dynamic Internet sites created with WordPress, Joomla and very similar scripts. Varnish, which is referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy, caches whole sites the first time a new website visitor opens them. It may be used to accelerate any type of Internet site as it delivers the cached content considerably faster than the hosting server every time a visitor opens the same site again. You could employ Node.js for online apps that require real-time server-client interaction like online chats or booking websites. Different from other platforms that await the user to input everything on a form, Node.js processes the information piece by piece as the user fills each box, so it works considerably quicker and more effectively. All dedicated server plans feature several gigabytes of memory dedicated to those 3 web accelerators.
