A web accelerator is a server-side application which speeds up a site. Such a piece of software can function in different ways depending on the website content, but in the general case all such apps cache content and deliver it instead of the web server. That is valid for both static and dynamic websites since the cached content can be simple text or database responses and the advantage of using a web accelerator isn't only the faster loading Internet site, but also the decreased overall load on the machine. This way, you may use a lower-end hosting package which will also cost less while your visitors could still enjoy superior browsing speeds. Several firms supply web accelerators with their hosting packages and they typically offer just 1, while we offer 3 different ones which will enable you to improve the performance of any kind of site substantially.

Web Accelerators in Shared Web Hosting

When you host your websites inside a shared web hosting account from our firm, you will have three popular web accelerators to choose from if you'd like to boost the sites' functionality. Memcached is used for database-driven websites and it caches the calls and requests between a site and its database, so it could minimize the load of such sites drastically. Varnish caches whole webpages the first time a visitor opens them and delivers them from there on if the same website visitor opens them again. It does that considerably faster than the server, so it could boost the loading speed of any Internet site approximately 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time programs that operates on the hosting server and not in the visitor's web browser. It is employed for accommodation booking, chats and other apps where lots of data should be processed in real time. The availability of these accelerators depends on the hosting plan which you choose - 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

You'll be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the sites hosted inside your semi-dedicated hosting account based on the nature of the site content. Memcached, for example, caches database requests, so it is a superb option for any script application such as WordPress or Joomla. That way, the database hosting server won't have to process the exact same request if many users open a website with the same content. Varnish is similar, but it's a general-purpose accelerator because it caches any type of content the first time a website visitor opens a page. If that page is opened again by the same visitor, it shall be delivered by Varnish at a much better speed compared to the server. Using this web accelerator shall reduce the load generated by your sites substantially. Last, but not least, Node.js shall permit you to create scalable web applications like hotel booking sites or chats. Its advantage over comparable platforms is that it doesn't wait for a user to submit a sizable piece of info, but processes whatever the client is typing in real-time. The 3 web accelerators are available inside 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 can employ.

Web Accelerators in VPS Web Hosting

All virtual private servers which are integrated with the Hepsia CP come with Varnish, Memcached and Node.js already included and you'll receive 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 visitor opens them and provides them if that guest opens them again, therefore the web server won't need to perform any action. As Varnish functions considerably faster than any server, an Internet site using this accelerator shall function several times swifter. Memcached is a platform which caches database calls and responses and it's used for WordPress, Joomla and other script-driven apps that store their content within a database. Node.js is an effective platform for building scalable web apps. Any data on a site that uses Node.js is processed in real time, which makes it a superb choice for dining and accommodation booking sites, web-based chats, web browser games, etc.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Memcached, Node.js and Varnish are provided by default with all of our dedicated servers that are ordered with Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel. These three web accelerators feature several gbs of dedicated memory and you may employ them to speed up any sort of site. Memcached can greatly decrease the load on the server if you have script-driven websites because it caches database responses, therefore it lessens the amount of database queries which the hosting server has to tackle. Node.js shall allow you to build scalable apps with real-time user-server interaction including chats or dining booking Internet sites. Its advantage over comparable platforms is that it processes information the moment the user enters it, so all the data is handled faster and in small parts. Varnish caches whole webpages the first time a visitor opens them and provides them each time the same website visitor opens them again, that makes it a universal accelerator for any type of sites. Because it functions quicker than any hosting server, it can speed up a website at least several times and as a result, Varnish is one of the most widely used web accelerators available on the market.
