A web accelerator is a software which accelerates a site, usually by caching its content. There are various types of accelerators, but in the typical case this sort of applications cache static content or database responses and supply them in place of the hosting server, hence enhancing the performance of an Internet site greatly. The latter is achievable because accelerator apps work faster than a web server and not only will a site operate better, but the server load will also minimize, which will enable you to run heavy websites with less resources. We provide three web accelerators with our hosting packages, which will enable you to increase the speed of any sort of website. In comparison, most Internet hosting service providers don't offer any web accelerators or offer one, which limits your choice of web applications in the event that you would like to employ such software.

Web Accelerators in Shared Hosting

When you host your sites in a shared hosting account from us, you'll have 3 popular web accelerators to pick from if you would like to improve the sites' efficiency. Memcached is used for database-driven Internet sites and it caches the calls and requests between a site and its database, so it can lessen the load of such websites considerably. Varnish caches entire webpages the first time a visitor opens them and provides them from there on if the same guest opens them again. It does that considerably faster than the web server, so it could boost the loading speed of any Internet site up to 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time applications that operates on the web server and not within the visitor's browser. It's employed for accommodation booking, chats and other programs where loads of data has to be processed in real time. The availability of the accelerators depends on the hosting package which you select - they might come by default or as an upgrade. In each case, you will be able to add more instances or more memory for each of them.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the Internet sites hosted inside your semi-dedicated server account depending on the nature of the site content. Memcached, in particular, caches database requests, therefore it is a superb choice for any script app such as WordPress or Joomla. This way, the database web server will not need to process the very same request if a number of users open a webpage with the same content. Varnish is comparable, but it's a general-purpose accelerator because it caches any kind of content the first time a visitor opens a page. In case this webpage is opened again by the exact same visitor, it'll be delivered by Varnish at a much higher speed compared to the hosting server. Employing this web accelerator can decrease the load produced by your websites significantly. Last, but not least, Node.js will allow you to create scalable web programs such as hotel booking Internet sites or chats. Its advantage over comparable platforms is that it doesn't wait for a customer to submit a big piece of info, but processes whatever the user is entering in real-time. The three web accelerators are available in the Hepsia CP and you'll be able to choose how many instances of every one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they can use.

Web Accelerators in VPS Servers

If you obtain a VPS server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your Internet sites. All 3 accelerators are included inside our solutions by default and feature dedicated memory of a few hundred megabytes. Node.js is used to build scalable applications where real-time interaction is necessary - booking websites, online flash games, chats, and so forth. It processes the info in little bits as the end user is entering it, as a result it operates faster than other platforms that wait for the users to enter one big part of info. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator that functions as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it when the same visitor opens the same website again, which can speed any site several times since Varnish functions quicker than any hosting server. Memcached is used for caching API and database responses, consequently it's suitable for script-driven websites like WordPress and Joomla. This web accelerator can easily decrease the load on your server as it shall decrease the number of database queries your sites make.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

In case you choose Hepsia as the hosting CP for your new dedicated server, you shall have Memcached, Varnish and Node.js at your disposal for increasing the speed of your Internet sites. Memcached can reduce the load on the hosting server by lowering the queries your script-driven websites make since it caches database responses. This web accelerator is perfect for dynamic Internet sites built with WordPress, Joomla and very similar scripts. Varnish, which is known as an HTTP reverse proxy, caches entire webpages the first time a new guest opens them. It could be employed to accelerate any sort of site because it delivers the cached content much faster than the web server each time a website visitor opens the same site again. You could use Node.js for online apps that call for real-time server-client interaction like online chats or booking sites. In contrast to other platforms which wait for the user to input everything on a form, Node.js processes the data gradually as the user fills every box, so it operates considerably faster and more efficiently. All dedicated server solutions include several gigabytes of memory dedicated to these three web accelerators.
