A web accelerator is a server-side application that quickens a website. Such a piece of software can function in different ways depending upon the site content, but in the typical situation all such apps cache content and deliver it instead of the web server. That's valid for both dynamic and static Internet sites because the cached content may be simple text or database responses and the advantage of employing a web accelerator isn't just the faster loading Internet site, but also the reduced overall load on the web server. That way, you could use a lower-end hosting solution which will also cost less while your visitors can still enjoy high browsing speeds. Few firms supply web accelerators with their hosting packages and they usually offer just one, while we offer three different ones that will enable you to improve the performance of any kind of website substantially.

Web Accelerators in Cloud Web Hosting

In case you host your sites in a cloud web hosting account from our firm, you will have three popular web accelerators to select from if you would like to improve the sites' functionality. Memcached is used for database-driven websites and it caches the calls and requests between an Internet site and its database, so it can easily lessen the load of such Internet sites drastically. Varnish caches whole web pages the first time a website visitor opens them and provides them from there on if the same site visitor opens them again. It does that much faster than the server, so it could boost the loading speed of any website up to 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time applications which functions on the hosting server and not within the visitor's browser. It is employed for accommodation booking, chats and other apps where plenty of data has to be processed in real time. The availability of the accelerators depends upon the hosting package that you pick - they may come by default or as an upgrade. In both cases, you'll be able to include more instances or more memory for each of them.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You shall be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the sites hosted inside your semi-dedicated hosting account in accordance with the nature of the site content. Memcached, in particular, caches database requests, so it is an excellent choice for any script application like WordPress or Joomla. That way, the database web server won't need to process the very same request if multiple users open a site with the same content. Varnish is very similar, but it is a general-purpose accelerator because it caches any type of content the first time a guest opens a page. In case that page is opened again by the very same guest, it will be provided by Varnish at a much higher speed compared to the web server. Employing this web accelerator shall lessen the load produced by your sites considerably. Last, but not least, Node.js shall enable you to build scalable web apps such as hotel booking websites or chats. Its advantage over very similar platforms is that it does not wait for a client to submit a large piece of information, but processes whatever the client is typing in real-time. The three web accelerators are available within the Hepsia Control Panel and you'll be able to select how many instances of each one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they may employ.

Web Accelerators in VPS Web Hosting

All virtual private servers that are integrated with the Hepsia CP come with Varnish, Memcached and Node.js already included and you will have several hundred megabytes of dedicated memory for them by default. Varnish, that's also often called an HTTP reverse proxy, caches web pages the first time a guest opens them and provides them if that guest opens them again, so the server won't need to perform any action. Since Varnish operates considerably faster than any server, a website employing this accelerator will operate several times swifter. Memcached is a platform which caches database calls and responses and it is used for WordPress, Joomla and other script-driven programs which store their content inside a database. Node.js is an effective platform for building scalable web programs. Any info on an Internet site that uses Node.js is processed in real time, which makes it an excellent choice for dining and accommodation booking websites, web-based chats, browser games, etc.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers Hosting

In case you pick Hepsia as the hosting CP for your new dedicated server, you shall have Memcached, Varnish and Node.js readily available for increasing the speed of your Internet sites. Memcached can easily minimize the load on the server by lowering the queries your script-driven sites make as it caches database responses. This web accelerator is perfect for dynamic websites built with WordPress, Joomla and similar scripts. Varnish, which is referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy, caches entire websites the first time a new visitor opens them. It may be used to speed up any type of website because it delivers the cached content much quicker than the hosting server any time a customer opens the same site again. You can employ Node.js for online programs which require real-time server-client interaction like online chats or booking Internet sites. Different from other platforms that wait for the user to input everything on a form, Node.js processes the data piece by piece as the user fills each box, so it works considerably faster and more efficiently. All dedicated server solutions feature several gigabytes of memory dedicated to these three web accelerators.
