A web accelerator is a server-side app which speeds up a site. Such a piece of software can function in different ways based on the site content, but in the general case all such applications cache content and deliver it instead of the hosting server. That's valid for both static and dynamic websites because the cached content can be simple text or database responses and the reward of employing a web accelerator isn't only the faster loading site, but also the lessened overall load on the server. This way, you could use a lower-end hosting solution that'll also cost less while your site visitors can still enjoy fast browsing speeds. Few businesses supply web accelerators with their hosting plans and they often offer only 1, while we offer three different ones that'll enable you to enhance the performance of any type of site tremendously.

Web Accelerators in Web Hosting

When you host your websites in a web hosting account from our firm, you shall have three popular web accelerators to select from if you'd like to enhance the sites' efficiency. Memcached is employed for database-driven sites and it caches the calls and requests between a website and its database, so it can easily reduce the load of such sites drastically. Varnish caches entire webpages the first time a site visitor opens them and delivers them from there on if the same visitor opens them again. It does that faster than the web server, so it can easily raise the loading speed of any site approximately 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time apps which works on the web server and not inside the visitor's world-wide web browser. It is employed for accommodation booking, chats and other applications where loads of data should be processed in real time. The availability of those accelerators depends upon the hosting solution that you select - they might come by default or as an upgrade. In each case, you shall be able to include more instances or more memory for each one of them.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You'll be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the websites hosted within your semi-dedicated hosting account in accordance with the nature of the site content. Memcached, for instance, caches database requests, therefore it's an excellent option for any script program such as WordPress or Joomla. That way, the database web server won't have to process exactly the same request if multiple users open a page with the same content. Varnish is similar, but it is a general-purpose accelerator because it caches any kind of content the first time a guest opens a site. In case that webpage is opened again by the same website visitor, it will be delivered by Varnish at a greater speed compared to the server. Using this web accelerator will lessen the load produced by your Internet sites tremendously. Last, but not least, Node.js will enable you to produce scalable web apps like hotel booking sites or chats. Its advantage over comparable platforms is that it does not wait for a customer to submit a substantial piece of data, but processes whatever the user is entering in real-time. The 3 web accelerators are available in the Hepsia Control Panel and you shall be able to choose how many instances of each and every one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they may use.

Web Accelerators in VPS Hosting

In case you get a virtual private server with the Hepsia CP, you will be able to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your Internet sites. All 3 accelerators are integrated within our packages by default and offer dedicated memory of several hundred MBs. Node.js is employed to build scalable programs where real-time interaction is required - booking websites, online flash games, chats, etc. It processes the data in little pieces as the end user is entering it, as a result it operates much faster than other platforms that wait for the users to enter one massive piece of info. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator which functions as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it in case the same visitor opens the same webpage again, which can easily speed any website several times due to the fact that Varnish works quicker than any web server. Memcached is employed for caching API and database responses, therefore it's suitable for script-driven websites like WordPress and Joomla. This web accelerator will be able to decrease the load on your web server as it'll decrease the number of database queries that your Internet sites make.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Web Hosting

If you select Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel for your new dedicated server, you'll have Memcached, Varnish and Node.js at your disposal for accelerating your websites. Memcached can minimize the load on the web server by lowering the queries your script-driven websites make because it caches database responses. This web accelerator is perfect for dynamic sites created with WordPress, Joomla and similar scripts. Varnish, which is often called an HTTP reverse proxy, caches whole webpages the first time a new guest opens them. It could be used to accelerate any type of Internet site as it delivers the cached content much quicker than the web server any time a guest opens the same page again. You can employ Node.js for online apps which demand real-time server-client interaction such as online chats or booking websites. Different from other platforms which wait for the user to fill everything on a form, Node.js processes the information gradually as the user fills every box, so it works considerably quicker and more effectively. All dedicated server solutions feature several gigabytes of memory dedicated to these 3 web accelerators.
