A web accelerator is a software which quickens an Internet site, typically by caching its content. There are many types of accelerators, but in the common case this sort of programs cache static content or database responses and provide them in lieu of the server, thus boosting the performance of an Internet site drastically. The latter is achievable because accelerator apps work faster than a web server and not simply will a site work better, but the server load will also minimize, which will allow you to run heavy sites with less system resources. We offer 3 web accelerators with our hosting packages, which will enable you to increase the speed of any kind of Internet site. In comparison, most website hosting firms don't provide any web accelerators or offer one, which limits your choice of web apps in case you want to employ this type of software.

Web Accelerators in Web Hosting

Our web hosting plans come with 3 web accelerators which you can employ depending on the websites which you would like to run. Memcached is used to cache database or API calls and responses, which can tremendously improve the performance of dynamic websites. Varnish is a popular HTTP accelerator which caches pages and provides them to the website visitors much quicker than the web server after the first time they open them. Node.js is an event-driven platform employed for scalable real-time applications for example booking sites. With respect to the Internet hosting package you choose, these 3 apps may already be included or might be optional upgrades. Either way, you shall be able to choose how many instances of each of them will be at your disposal and what amount of memory they should use. These accelerators are provided only by several web hosting companies, including ours, and they can increase the speed of your web applications substantially.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will 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 site content. Memcached, for instance, caches database requests, therefore it's a fantastic option for any script app such as WordPress or Joomla. That way, the database hosting server won't need to process the same request if many users open a website with the same content. Varnish is comparable, but it's a general-purpose accelerator since it caches any kind of content the first time a website visitor opens an Internet site. In case this web page is opened again by the same guest, it will be provided by Varnish at a much higher speed compared to the hosting server. Employing this web accelerator will decrease the load generated by your sites drastically. Last, but not least, Node.js shall 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 customer to submit a large piece of information, but processes whatever the client is entering in real-time. The three web accelerators are available in 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 can employ.

Web Accelerators in VPS Servers

We offer Memcached, Node.js and Varnish with all VPS servers that are acquired with the Hepsia CP. Your hosting server shall also include several hundred megabytes of dedicated memory for these accelerators and the actual amount would be determined by the package that you choose. Memcached is used for script-driven sites because it caches database responses, as a result reducing the number of queries that a script sends to its database. It could be employed for any script including WordPress or Joomla. Node.js is an efficient platform for building web apps for example booking Internet sites and chats. The real-time interaction between end users and a web server is performed by processing small parts of information as soon any user inputs anything on the website. In contrast, other platforms wait for users to enter loads of data before they process it, therefore they operate slower. Varnish is a multi-purpose accelerator which caches entire web pages and delivers them instead of the hosting server at a faster rate. It is also often called an HTTP reverse proxy and it can effortlessly speed up any type of website.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

In case you obtain a dedicated server from our firm and you opt for Hepsia as the hosting CP, you'll be able to employ Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your sites. All packages include several gigabytes of memory dedicated to these accelerators and the specific amount depends on the plan you select. Node.js is used for scalable online apps such as browser games or hotel booking and it processes the data in real time as the client enters it, which makes it much faster than very similar platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you employ it for a script-driven website, not simply will the website speed up, but also the load on the web server will reduce because there will be less database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it is not limited to databases. Rather, it caches entire webpages once a visitor opens them and provides them instead of the hosting server each time the same visitor opens them later on. Because Varnish processes web requests much faster than any hosting server, the efficiency of a site using this accelerator could increase up to 300%.
