A web accelerator is a software that speeds up an Internet site, usually by caching its content. There are various sorts of accelerators, but in the typical case this kind of apps cache static content or database responses and provide them instead of the server, therefore enhancing the performance of a site drastically. The latter is achievable because accelerator programs work faster than a hosting server and not simply will an Internet site function better, but the server load will also minimize, which will enable you to run heavy websites with less system resources. We provide 3 web accelerators with our hosting packages, which will enable you to increase the speed of any kind of site. In comparison, most Internet hosting businesses do not offer any web accelerators or offer only 1, which limits your choice of web applications in case you want to employ this kind of software.

Web Accelerators in Web Hosting

If you purchase one of our web hosting plans, you will have 3 popular web accelerators at your disposal and you will be able to access them directly through the Hepsia Control Panel which is included with our plans. Varnish is one of the most widely used ones and it could greatly speed up any site since it caches the pages a website visitor opens for the first time and delivers them every time that guest opens them again. Since Varnish functions noticeably faster than any web server, the loading speed of any site using the accelerator will raise significantly. Memcached is used to cache database and API calls and responses between a website visitor and a web server, so it is similar to Varnish, but is used predominantly for database-driven websites. Because the site will connect to its database a lot less, the overall hosting server load shall be reduced considerably. The last accelerator, Node.js, is employed for scalable online programs such as chats and booking websites as it processes info in real time the moment it is entered on the website by the users. Depending on the plan you choose, these accelerators may be available or might be an optional upgrade.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the Internet sites hosted within your semi-dedicated server account in accordance with the nature of the website content. Memcached, in particular, caches database requests, so it is a great option for any script application such as WordPress or Joomla. That way, the database web server shall not have to process the very same request if many users open a page with the same content. Varnish is very similar, but it's a general-purpose accelerator as it caches any sort of content the first time a guest opens a site. In case this page 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 can lessen the load produced by your Internet sites tremendously. Last, but not least, Node.js shall enable you to create scalable web programs such as hotel booking sites or chats. Its advantage over comparable platforms is that it doesn't wait for a customer to submit a big piece of information, but processes whatever the user is typing in real-time. The 3 web accelerators are available within the Hepsia CP and you shall be able to pick how many instances of every one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they can employ.

Web Accelerators in VPS Servers

We provide Memcached, Node.js and Varnish with all VPS servers that are ordered with the Hepsia CP. Your server shall also include several hundred MBs of dedicated memory for these accelerators and the exact amount depends on the package deal that you pick. Memcached is employed for script-driven sites as it caches database responses, as a result lowering the amount of queries that a script sends to its database. It may be employed for any script like WordPress or Joomla. Node.js is a highly effective platform for building web apps for example booking websites and chats. The real-time interaction between users and a server is performed by processing small pieces of data as soon any user inputs anything on the webpage. In contrast, other platforms await customers to enter loads of information before they process it, as a result they function slowly. Varnish is a multi-purpose accelerator which caches entire pages and delivers them instead of the web server at a faster rate. It's also referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy and it can easily speed up any kind of website.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

Memcached, Varnish and Node.js come with all dedicated servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and depending on the package you choose, you shall also have several gbs of dedicated memory for them. Memcached shall reduce the server load by lowering the number of queries that need to be handled as it caches database calls and responses. You will be able to use it on any site that uses an API or a database - for instance, any site developed with WordPress or Joomla. Varnish could enhance the performance of any sort of site by caching whole pages the first time a visitor opens them. The accelerator delivers the webpages if the exact same visitor opens them afterwards and given that it does that considerably faster than the hosting server, the website visitor shall be able to look through your website at least a couple of times faster. This is why Varnish is sometimes called an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is a sophisticated platform that'll allow you to create booking sites, web chats and other apps where real-time server-user interaction is necessary. It processes the data in small pieces as the client fills different boxes and doesn't wait for all boxes to be filled and processed as one substantial piece of information, which makes Node.js much faster than similar apps.
