A web accelerator is an application that speeds up an Internet site, typically by caching its content. There are many types of accelerators, but in the general case this kind of apps cache static content or database responses and deliver them instead of the server, therefore improving the performance of a site considerably. The latter is possible because accelerator apps work faster than a server and not only will a website function better, but the server load shall also minimize, which will enable you to run heavy websites with less system resources. We provide three web accelerators with our hosting plans, which will enable you to speed up any sort of website. In comparison, most Internet hosting firms do not provide any web accelerators or offer only 1, which limits your choice of web apps in the event that you would like to use this kind of software.

Web Accelerators in Cloud Hosting

If you purchase one of our cloud hosting packages, you shall have 3 popular web accelerators at your disposal and you shall be able to access them directly through the Hepsia Control Panel which is included with our solutions. Varnish is one of the most well-known ones and it can significantly increase the speed of any Internet site since it caches the web pages which a website visitor opens for the first time and delivers them each and every time that visitor opens them again. Given that Varnish functions much faster than any web server, the loading speed of any site using the accelerator shall increase noticeably. Memcached is employed to cache database and API calls and responses between a website visitor and a web server, so it is much like Varnish, but is used predominantly for database-driven Internet sites. Because the site shall connect to its database a lot less, the overall server load shall be reduced significantly. The third accelerator, Node.js, is used for scalable online programs such as chats and booking Internet sites as it processes data in real time the moment it is entered on the website by the users. Dependant upon the plan you choose, these accelerators could be available or might be an optional upgrade.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You'll be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the sites hosted within your semi-dedicated hosting account depending on the nature of the website content. Memcached, for instance, caches database requests, therefore it's an excellent option for any script app such as WordPress or Joomla. This way, the database hosting server shall not need to process exactly the same request if a number of users open a site with the same content. Varnish is similar, but it is a general-purpose accelerator because it caches any type of content the first time a website visitor opens a site. If that page is opened again by the very same website visitor, it shall be delivered by Varnish at a much better speed compared to the server. Using this web accelerator can decrease the load created by your sites drastically. Last, but not least, Node.js will permit you to create scalable web apps like hotel booking sites or chats. Its advantage over comparable platforms is that it doesn't wait for a user to submit a big piece of information, but processes whatever the user is typing in real-time. The 3 web accelerators are available in the Hepsia CP and you'll be able to pick how many instances of each and every one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they can employ.

Web Accelerators in VPS Web Hosting

We provide Memcached, Node.js and Varnish with all virtual private servers that are purchased with the Hepsia Control Panel. Your server will also feature a few hundred megabytes of dedicated memory for these accelerators and the particular amount depends on the plan that you pick. Memcached is used for script-driven sites as it caches database responses, as a result lowering the number of queries which a script sends to its database. It can be used for any script including WordPress or Joomla. Node.js is a highly effective platform for building web applications including booking sites and chats. The real-time interaction between users and a hosting server is done by processing little bits of data as soon any user inputs anything on the website. In contrast, other platforms await customers to enter loads of data before they process it, as a result they operate slowly. Varnish is a multi-purpose accelerator that caches whole webpages and provides them instead of the hosting server at a faster rate. It is also known as an HTTP reverse proxy and it can effortlessly speed up any type of site.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers Hosting

In case you pick Hepsia as the hosting CP for your new dedicated server, you will have Memcached, Varnish and Node.js at your disposal for accelerating your Internet sites. Memcached will be able to lessen the load on the server by lowering the queries your script-driven websites make because it caches database responses. This web accelerator is perfect for dynamic Internet sites built with WordPress, Joomla and comparable scripts. Varnish, which is often called an HTTP reverse proxy, caches entire webpages the first time a new visitor opens them. It could be employed to speed up any type of site because it provides the cached content way quicker than the web server every time a visitor opens the same webpage again. You'll be able to use Node.js for online applications which call for real-time server-client interaction such as online chats or booking Internet sites. Unlike other platforms which wait for the user to enter everything on a form, Node.js processes the information little by little as the user fills every box, so it operates considerably faster and more efficiently. All dedicated server plans come with several gigabytes of memory dedicated to those 3 web accelerators.
