A web accelerator is an application that speeds up a site, usually by caching its content. There are different kinds of accelerators, but in the typical case this sort of apps cache static content or database responses and deliver them in lieu of the web server, hence improving the performance of a site significantly. The latter is achievable because accelerator apps work faster than a web server and not only will a website work better, but the server load will also minimize, which will permit you to run heavy Internet sites with less resources. We offer three web accelerators with our hosting solutions, which will permit you to speed up any type of site. In comparison, most hosting businesses don't offer any web accelerators or offer only 1, which limits your choice of web applications in the event that you would like to use this kind of software.

Web Accelerators in Shared Hosting

If you acquire one of our shared hosting plans, you shall have three widely used web accelerators at your disposal and you'll be able to access them directly through the Hepsia CP which is included with our packages. Varnish is one of the most widely used ones and it could considerably increase the speed of any Internet site as it caches the web pages which a visitor opens for the first time and provides them each time that website visitor opens them again. Given that Varnish functions much faster than any server, the loading speed of any site using the accelerator will raise considerably. Memcached is used to cache database and API calls and responses between a visitor and a hosting server, so it's similar to Varnish, but is employed mainly for database-driven Internet sites. Considering that the website shall connect to its database much less, the overall server load will be reduced considerably. The last accelerator, Node.js, is employed for scalable online apps such as chats and booking sites since it processes data in real time as soon as it is entered on the webpage by the users. Dependant upon the plan you choose, these accelerators could be available or may be an optional upgrade.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

You'll be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the sites hosted within your semi-dedicated server account based on the nature of the website content. Memcached, for instance, caches database requests, so it is a superb option for any script program like WordPress or Joomla. That way, the database web server won't need to process the same request if a number of users open a site 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 visitor opens a page. In case that page is opened again by the same visitor, it shall be delivered by Varnish at a much higher speed compared to the server. Employing this web accelerator shall minimize the load generated by your websites tremendously. Last, but not least, Node.js will allow you to build scalable web programs such as hotel booking Internet sites or chats. Its advantage over comparable platforms is that it doesn't wait for a customer to submit a large piece of data, but processes whatever the customer is inputting in real-time. The 3 web accelerators are available inside the Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to choose how many instances of every one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they'll use.

Web Accelerators in VPS Servers

All VPS servers which are set up with the Hepsia CP come with Varnish, Memcached and Node.js already included and you will get several hundred MBs of dedicated memory for them by default. Varnish, that is also often called an HTTP reverse proxy, caches web pages the first time a website visitor opens them and provides them if that guest opens them again, hence the hosting server shall not need to perform any action. Since Varnish operates much quicker than any web server, a site using this accelerator shall function several times swifter. Memcached is a platform that caches database calls and responses and it's employed for WordPress, Joomla and other script-driven apps which store their content within a database. Node.js is an efficient platform for creating scalable web programs. Any info on an Internet site that uses Node.js is processed in real time, which makes it a superb choice for dining and accommodation booking websites, web-based chats, Internet browser games, etcetera.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

Memcached, Varnish and Node.js are offered with all dedicated servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting CP and in accordance with the package that you opt for, you will also have several gbs of dedicated memory for them. Memcached shall decrease the hosting server load by lowering the amount of queries which need to be addressed as it caches database calls and responses. You'll be able to use it on any Internet site that uses an API or a database - as an example, any website designed with WordPress or Joomla. Varnish could improve the performance of any type of site by caching whole pages the first time a visitor opens them. The accelerator provides the web pages if the very same visitor opens them later on and because it does that much faster than the hosting server, the website visitor will be able to look through your website at least a couple of times faster. This is why Varnish is often categorised as an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is an advanced platform that will allow you to build booking websites, web chats and other applications in which real-time server-user interaction is needed. It processes the information in small parts as the client fills different boxes and does not wait for all boxes to be filled and processed as one substantial chunk of information, which makes Node.js much quicker than similar programs.
