A web accelerator is a software that speeds up an Internet site, normally by caching its content. There are different types of accelerators, but in the typical case such programs cache static content or database responses and supply them in place of the server, thus improving the performance of an Internet site significantly. The latter is possible because accelerator programs work faster than a hosting server and not simply will an Internet site work better, but the server load will also decline, which will allow you to run heavy websites with less resources. We offer 3 web accelerators with our hosting packages, which will permit you to speed up any type of Internet site. In comparison, most Internet hosting companies do not provide any web accelerators or offer only one, which limits your choice of web apps in case you would like to use this kind of software.

Web Accelerators in Cloud Website Hosting

If you host your sites inside a cloud website hosting account from our company, you'll have three popular web accelerators to choose from if you'd like to improve the sites' functionality. Memcached is used for database-driven Internet sites and it caches the calls and requests between a site and its database, so it could reduce the load of such sites significantly. Varnish caches entire webpages the first time a site visitor opens them and delivers them from there on if the same site visitor opens them again. It does that much more quickly than the server, so it can easily raise the loading speed of any website up to 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time programs which works on the server and not in the visitor's Internet browser. It's used for holiday accommodation booking, chats and other programs where a lot of data has to be processed in real time. The availability of these accelerators depends on the hosting solution that you select - they may come by default or as an upgrade. In both cases, you'll be able to include more instances or more memory for each one of them.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you go for one of our semi-dedicated server packages, you will be able to use Varnish, Memcached and Node.js - 3 efficient web accelerators. Varnish is a multi-purpose application that caches pages the first time a visitor opens them and provides them instead of the server if the site visitor opens them again up to 300% faster. Memcached caches API and database calls and responses so that the web server doesn't have to process each and every request, which makes it ideal for database-driven Internet sites, for instance ones developed with Joomla or WordPress. Node.js is employed to create web apps which function in real-time including chats or accommodation booking portals and it processes each bit of information the instant the user types it instead of waiting for large portions of info to be accumulated. The Hepsia CP that comes with our semi-dedicated plans will enable you to pick how many instances of each and every accelerator shall work at a time and what amount of memory they'll use.

Web Accelerators in VPS Servers

If you obtain a VPS server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you shall be able to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your Internet sites. All three accelerators are integrated inside our solutions by default and feature dedicated memory of a few hundred megabytes. Node.js is employed to create scalable programs where real-time interaction is necessary - booking Internet sites, online games, chats, etc. It processes the data in smaller pieces as the user is entering it, as a result it works faster than other platforms that wait for the users to input one large bit of data. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator which functions as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it in the event that the same site visitor opens the same webpage again, which can speed any website several times because Varnish functions more quickly than any hosting server. Memcached is used for caching API and database responses, so it is suitable for script-driven websites like WordPress and Joomla. This web accelerator can reduce the load on your web server as it shall reduced the number of database queries your sites make.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

Memcached, Varnish and Node.js are provided with all dedicated servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and based on the package deal which you choose, you shall also have several gbs of dedicated memory for them. Memcached shall reduce the hosting server load by lowering the amount of queries that have to be dealt with since it caches database calls and responses. You will be able to use it on every website that uses an API or a database - as an example, any site created with WordPress or Joomla. Varnish could enhance the performance of any type of website by caching whole pages the first time a visitor opens them. The accelerator delivers the pages if the same visitor opens them later on and because it does that considerably faster than the web server, the website visitor shall be able to look through your site at least several times faster. This is why Varnish is sometimes categorised as an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is an advanced platform which will permit you to build booking sites, web chats and other programs where real-time server-user interaction is needed. It processes the info in tiny parts as the client fills different boxes and doesn't wait for all boxes to be filled and processed as one substantial piece of data, which makes Node.js considerably faster than similar applications.
