A web accelerator is a server-side program that speeds up a website. Such a piece of software may operate in different ways depending upon the website content, but in the typical case all such apps cache content and deliver it instead of the hosting server. That is valid for both static and dynamic websites as the cached content can be simple text or database responses and the advantage of using a web accelerator isn't simply the faster loading website, but also the decreased overall load on the hosting server. This way, you can use a lower-end hosting package that will also cost less while your visitors will be able to still enjoy fast browsing speeds. Few businesses offer web accelerators with their hosting plans and they typically offer only one, while we offer 3 different ones which will allow you to improve the performance of any kind of Internet site significantly.

Web Accelerators in Web Hosting

Our web hosting solutions feature three web accelerators which you can use depending on the websites that you'd like to run. Memcached is employed to cache database or API calls and responses, which can drastically enhance the efficiency of dynamic sites. Varnish is a popular HTTP accelerator that caches pages and delivers them to the site visitors much faster than the server after the first time they open them. Node.js is an event-driven platform employed for scalable real-time programs for example booking sites. With respect to the hosting package you pick, these 3 applications may already be included or may be optional upgrades. In any case, you will be able to pick how many instances of each of them will be at your disposal and what amount of memory they ought to employ. These accelerators are provided only by a few web hosting providers, including ours, and they could increase the speed of your web applications drastically.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

You'll be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the sites hosted in your semi-dedicated server account in accordance with the nature of the website content. Memcached, for example, caches database requests, therefore it is an excellent option for any script app like WordPress or Joomla. That way, the database server won't have to process the same request if many users open a webpage with the same content. Varnish is comparable, but it is a general-purpose accelerator as it caches any type of content the first time a visitor opens a page. If this page is opened again by the same visitor, it'll be delivered by Varnish at a much higher speed compared to the web server. Using this web accelerator can decrease the load generated by your sites substantially. Last, but not least, Node.js shall enable you to create scalable web apps like hotel booking websites or chats. Its advantage over comparable platforms is that it does not wait for a user to submit a sizable piece of data, but processes whatever the customer is typing in real-time. The three web accelerators are available within the Hepsia CP and you will be able to pick how many instances of every one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they may employ.

Web Accelerators in VPS Servers

All VPS servers which are integrated with the Hepsia Control Panel come with Varnish, Memcached and Node.js already included and you'll receive several hundred megabytes of dedicated memory for them by default. Varnish, that is also known as an HTTP reverse proxy, caches webpages the first time a website visitor opens them and delivers them in case that guest opens them again, so the hosting server will not need to perform any action. Since Varnish operates faster than any server, a website employing this accelerator will operate several times swifter. Memcached is a platform that caches database calls and responses and it is employed for WordPress, Joomla and other script-driven programs that store their content in a database. Node.js is a highly effective platform for creating scalable web apps. Any data on a website which employs Node.js is processed right away, which makes it an excellent choice for dining and accommodation booking websites, web-based chats, browser games, etc.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

Memcached, Node.js and Varnish are available by default with all our dedicated servers that are ordered with Hepsia as the Internet hosting CP. These 3 web accelerators include several gbs of dedicated memory and you may use them to speed up any sort of site. Memcached can substantially reduce the load on the hosting server if you have script-driven sites as it caches database responses, therefore it lessens the number of database queries that the hosting server has to tackle. Node.js will permit you to develop scalable programs with real-time user-server interaction such as chats or dining booking Internet sites. Its advantage over similar platforms is that it processes information the moment the user enters it, so all the info is managed quicker and in small pieces. Varnish caches entire Internet pages the first time a visitor opens them and provides them each and every time the same guest opens them again, which makes it a universal accelerator for any type of Internet sites. Because it functions faster than any hosting server, it can easily speed up a website at least several times and for that reason, Varnish is amongst the most popular web accelerators around.
