A web accelerator is a server-side program that accelerates an Internet site. Such a piece of software can work in different ways based on the site content, but in the typical case all such applications cache content and deliver it instead of the web server. This is valid for both dynamic and static Internet sites because the cached content may be simple text or database responses and the benefit of employing a web accelerator isn't only the faster loading website, but also the lessened overall load on the machine. That way, you can employ a lower-end hosting solution which will also cost less while your visitors will be able to still enjoy fast browsing speeds. Few businesses supply web accelerators with their hosting packages and they often offer just 1, while we offer 3 different ones that will permit you to improve the performance of any kind of Internet site noticeably.

Web Accelerators in Cloud Hosting

In case you host your Internet sites within a cloud hosting account from our company, you will have three popular web accelerators to select from if you'd like to enhance the sites' performance. Memcached is used for database-driven Internet sites and it caches the calls and requests between a website and its database, so it can easily minimize the load of such websites substantially. Varnish caches whole pages the first time a 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 increase the loading speed of any Internet site approximately 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time programs which operates on the web server and not within the visitor's Internet browser. It's used for accommodation booking, chats and other programs where a lot of data should be processed in real time. The availability of those accelerators depends upon the hosting solution which you pick - they could come by default or as an upgrade. In both cases, you'll be able to add more instances or more memory for every one of them.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the Internet sites hosted within your semi-dedicated hosting account depending on the nature of the website content. Memcached, in particular, caches database requests, therefore it's a great choice for any script program such as WordPress or Joomla. This way, the database hosting server won't have to process the same request if a number of users open a website with the same content. Varnish is comparable, but it is a general-purpose accelerator because it caches any type of content the first time a website visitor opens a site. In case that web page is opened again by the exact same website visitor, it'll be delivered by Varnish at a much higher speed compared to the server. Employing this web accelerator will lessen the load generated by your sites considerably. Last, but not least, Node.js will permit you to build scalable web apps like hotel booking websites or chats. Its advantage over similar platforms is that it doesn't wait for a client to submit a big piece of info, but processes whatever the client is entering in real-time. The 3 web accelerators are available within the Hepsia CP and you'll be able to choose how many instances of each one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they'll use.

Web Accelerators in VPS

In the event that you obtain a virtual private server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to employ Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your sites. All three accelerators are integrated in our packages by default and feature dedicated memory of several hundred megabytes. Node.js is used to build scalable applications where real-time interaction is needed - booking websites, online flash games, chats, and so on. It processes the information in smaller portions as the user is entering it, as a result it operates much faster than other platforms that wait for the users to enter one sizeable bit of information. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator which works as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it in case the same guest opens the same website again, which can speed any site several times since Varnish operates faster than any server. Memcached is employed for caching API and database responses, consequently it's suitable for script-driven sites like WordPress and Joomla. This web accelerator will be able to reduce the load on your server because it will lower the amount of database queries your sites make.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Hosting

In case you pick Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel for your new dedicated server, you shall have Memcached, Varnish and Node.js available for increasing the speed of your Internet sites. Memcached will be able to minimize the load on the web server by lowering the queries your script-driven sites make as it caches database responses. This web accelerator is great for dynamic sites developed with WordPress, Joomla and comparable scripts. Varnish, which is often called an HTTP reverse proxy, caches entire webpages the first time a new website visitor opens them. It can be employed to accelerate any kind of site because it delivers the cached content way quicker than the server any time a guest opens the same site again. You could employ Node.js for online apps which call for real-time server-client interaction such as online chats or booking websites. In contrast to other platforms that wait for the user to input everything on a form, Node.js processes the info little by little as the user fills every box, so it operates faster and more efficiently. All dedicated server packages come with several gigabytes of memory dedicated to those three web accelerators.
