A web accelerator is a program that accelerates a website, normally by caching its content. There are various kinds of accelerators, but in the general case this kind of programs cache static content or database responses and supply them in place of the web server, therefore boosting the performance of a website greatly. The latter is achievable because accelerator programs work faster than a server and not only will an Internet site operate better, but the server load will also lessen, which will permit you to run heavy sites with less system resources. We provide 3 web accelerators with our hosting solutions, which will enable you to speed up any kind of website. In comparison, most website hosting providers don't provide any web accelerators or offer just one, which limits your choice of web apps in case you want to employ this type of software.

Web Accelerators in Shared Hosting

When you host your websites within a shared hosting account from our company, you'll have three popular web accelerators to choose from if you'd like to boost the sites' functionality. Memcached is employed for database-driven websites and it caches the calls and requests between a website and its database, so it can easily reduce the load of such sites tremendously. Varnish caches whole webpages the first time a website visitor opens them and provides them from there on if the same site visitor opens them again. It does that considerably faster than the web server, so it can easily increase the loading speed of any Internet site approximately 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time apps that functions on the web server and not within the visitor's browser. It is used for accommodation booking, chats and other apps where loads of data should be processed in real time. The availability of those accelerators depends upon the hosting plan that you select - they might come by default or as an upgrade. In both cases, you will be able to include more instances or more memory for every one of them.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You shall be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the sites hosted inside your semi-dedicated hosting account in accordance with the nature of the site content. Memcached, for example, caches database requests, so it is a superb choice for any script program such as WordPress or Joomla. That way, the database hosting server won't need to process the exact same request if a number of users open a website with the same content. Varnish is similar, but it's a general-purpose accelerator since it caches any kind of content the first time a guest opens an Internet site. If that page is opened again by the exact same website visitor, it shall be delivered by Varnish at a much better speed compared to the server. Using this web accelerator will decrease the load created by your websites considerably. Last, but not least, Node.js will allow you to create scalable web apps like hotel booking Internet sites or chats. Its advantage over comparable platforms is that it does not wait for a user to submit a big piece of data, but processes whatever the user is inputting in real-time. The 3 web accelerators are available inside the Hepsia Control Panel and you shall be able to select how many instances of each and every one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they may employ.

Web Accelerators in VPS

All virtual private servers which are incorporated with the Hepsia CP come with Varnish, Memcached and Node.js already included and you'll have several hundred MBs of dedicated memory for them by default. Varnish, that is also known as an HTTP reverse proxy, caches webpages the first time a guest opens them and delivers them when that visitor opens them again, so the web server shall not have to perform any action. Because Varnish functions considerably faster than any hosting server, a website using this accelerator will function several times quicker. Memcached is a platform which caches database calls and responses and it is employed for WordPress, Joomla and other script-driven programs which store their content within a database. Node.js is an effective platform for building scalable web programs. Any data on a website which employs Node.js is processed right away, making it a superb choice for dining and accommodation booking websites, web-based chats, browser games, and so forth.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Hosting

Memcached, Varnish and Node.js are available with all dedicated servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting CP and based on the package that you select, you will also have several gigabytes of dedicated memory for them. Memcached will minimize the hosting server load by lowering the amount of queries that have to be taken care of since it caches database calls and responses. You shall be able to use it on any site which uses an API or a database - for instance, any website created with WordPress or Joomla. Varnish can enhance the performance of any type of website by caching whole webpages the first time a visitor opens them. The accelerator provides the webpages if the very same visitor opens them later and since it does that considerably faster than the server, the website visitor shall be able to browse your website at least several times faster. For this reason Varnish is often referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is a sophisticated platform that'll permit you to build booking websites, web chats and other applications where real-time server-user interaction is required. It processes the data in tiny portions as the user fills different boxes and does not wait for all boxes to be filled and processed as one massive chunk of info, which makes Node.js much faster than similar applications.
