A web accelerator is a server-side application that speeds up a site. Such a piece of software may operate in different ways depending upon the site content, but in the general case all such applications cache content and deliver it instead of the server. This is valid for both dynamic and static websites because the cached content could be simple text or database responses and the benefit of using a web accelerator is not simply the faster loading website, but also the decreased overall load on the server. This way, you can use a lower-end hosting package that'll also cost less while your visitors can still enjoy high browsing speeds. Several companies supply web accelerators with their hosting plans and they usually offer only one, while we offer 3 different ones that'll permit you to improve the performance of any type of Internet site significantly.

Web Accelerators in Cloud Hosting

If you host your websites in a cloud hosting account from our company, you will have three popular web accelerators to choose from if you'd like to boost the sites' functionality. Memcached is employed for database-driven sites and it caches the calls and requests between a website and its database, so it can minimize the load of such websites tremendously. Varnish caches entire webpages the first time a site visitor opens them and delivers them from there on if the same guest opens them again. It does that much faster than the server, so it could boost the loading speed of any site approximately 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time apps that functions on the server and not inside the visitor's Internet browser. It is employed for accommodation booking, chats and other programs where lots of data should be processed in real time. The availability of the accelerators depends on the hosting solution that you select - they could come by default or as an upgrade. In each case, you shall be able to add more instances or more memory for each of them.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you choose one of our semi-dedicated hosting solutions, you shall be able to employ Varnish, Memcached and Node.js - three effective web accelerators. Varnish is a multi-purpose program which caches webpages the first time a website visitor opens them and provides them instead of the server if the visitor opens them again up to 300% faster. Memcached caches API and database calls and responses to ensure the server does not need to process each request, that makes it ideal for database-driven Internet sites, for example ones developed with Joomla or WordPress. Node.js is used to produce web programs which operate in real-time such as chats or accommodation booking portals and it processes every bit of information the instant the user enters it instead of waiting for massive chunks of info to be accumulated. The Hepsia CP that is provided with our semi-dedicated plans shall allow you to choose how many instances of each and every accelerator shall work at a time and how much memory they will use.

Web Accelerators in VPS Web Hosting

In the event that you obtain a virtual private server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your Internet sites. All three accelerators are incorporated in our packages by default and come with dedicated memory of a few hundred MBs. Node.js is used to develop scalable apps where real-time interaction is necessary - booking Internet sites, online games, chats, etc. It processes the info in little portions as the user is entering it, thus it operates quicker than other platforms which wait for the end users to enter one sizeable bit of data. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator which operates as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it when the same visitor opens the same webpage again, which could speed any Internet site several times since Varnish operates faster than any server. Memcached is employed for caching API and database responses, so it's ideal for script-driven Internet sites like WordPress and Joomla. This web accelerator can minimize the load on your server because it shall reduced the number of database queries which your websites make.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers Hosting

In case you buy a dedicated server from our firm and you opt for Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel, you shall be able to use Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your websites. All solutions feature several gigabytes of memory dedicated to those accelerators and the actual amount depends on the plan that you choose. Node.js is used for scalable online applications such as browser games or hotel booking and it processes the information in real time as the client enters it, which makes it much faster than comparable platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you employ it for a script-driven website, not only will the site speed up, but also the load on the hosting server will minimize because there will be fewer database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it's not at all limited to databases. Rather, it caches whole websites once a website visitor opens them and delivers them instead of the hosting server every time the same visitor opens them later. Due to the fact that Varnish processes web requests much quicker than any web server, the performance of a site using this accelerator can increase up to 300%.
