A web accelerator is a server-side application which speeds up a site. Such a piece of software may work in different ways depending on the site content, but in the typical situation all such programs cache content and deliver it instead of the web server. That's valid for both static and dynamic websites because the cached content can be simple text or database responses and the advantage of using a web accelerator is not just the faster loading website, but also the smaller overall load on the hosting server. This way, you could employ a lower-end hosting plan that'll also cost less while your site visitors could still enjoy fast browsing speeds. Several firms supply web accelerators with their hosting packages and they usually offer just 1, while we offer 3 different ones that'll allow you to boost the performance of any kind of site significantly.

Web Accelerators in Cloud Website Hosting

In case you host your sites within a cloud website hosting account from us, you will have three popular web accelerators to pick from if you'd like to improve the sites' functionality. Memcached is employed for database-driven Internet sites and it caches the calls and requests between a site and its database, so it could reduce the load of such Internet sites tremendously. Varnish caches entire pages the first time a website visitor opens them and delivers them from there on if the same website visitor opens them again. It does that faster than the web server, so it can raise the loading speed of any Internet site up to 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time applications that operates on the web server and not within the visitor's world-wide web browser. It is used for accommodation booking, chats and other apps where a lot of data should be processed in real time. The availability of the accelerators depends on the hosting solution which you select - they may come by default or as an upgrade. In each case, you'll be able to include more instances or more memory for each one of them.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Hepsia CP that comes with our semi-dedicated hosting solutions shall enable you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your websites. Memcached is among the most widely used accelerators because it can speed up any API or database-driven Internet site by caching requests and responses, as a result the server will not need to process identical requests again and again. The platform is suitable for sites developed with programs such as Joomla, Mambo or WordPress. Varnish is an efficient accelerator which caches any sort of content and is also often called an HTTP reverse proxy. It caches web pages which are opened by a visitor for the first time and delivers them every time that very same guest opens them again. Varnish can easily accelerate an Internet site several times because it delivers content faster than any web server. Node.js is a platform employed for scalable real-time programs such as chats, browser games or social networks. It processes data in little parts the instant a user types something, therefore it functions faster than similar platforms in which users submit large pieces of information that require time to be processed. You can choose the number of instances and the dedicated memory for every one of the three accelerators via your CP.

Web Accelerators in VPS Hosting

In case you obtain a virtual private server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to employ Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your Internet sites. All 3 accelerators are integrated inside our packages by default and feature dedicated memory of several hundred megabytes. Node.js is employed to create scalable applications where real-time interaction is required - booking websites, online games, chats, and so on. It processes the data in smaller parts as the end user is entering it, thus it operates much faster than other platforms which wait for the end users to input one massive bit of info. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator which functions as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it in case the same visitor opens the same webpage again, which can certainly speed any site several times since Varnish functions quicker than any web server. Memcached is used for caching API and database responses, so it's ideal for script-driven sites such as WordPress and Joomla. This web accelerator can decrease the load on your web server as it'll lower the number of database queries your websites make.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Web Hosting

Memcached, Varnish and Node.js are available with all dedicated servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting CP and based on the plan you opt for, you'll also have several gbs of dedicated memory for them. Memcached can decrease the server load by lowering the number of queries which need to be dealt with because it caches database calls and responses. You will be able to use it on any website that uses an API or a database - for instance, any website created with WordPress or Joomla. Varnish can enhance the performance of any sort of Internet site by caching whole webpages the first time a visitor opens them. The accelerator delivers the web pages if the same visitor opens them afterwards and because it does that much faster than the server, the visitor will be able to browse your Internet site at least a few times faster. That's why Varnish is often referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is an advanced platform that will allow you to build booking sites, web chats and other apps where real-time server-user interaction is necessary. It processes the info in small pieces as the user fills different boxes and does not wait for all boxes to be filled and processed as one large chunk of information, which makes Node.js much faster than similar apps.
