A web accelerator is a server-side app which quickens a website. Such a piece of software can function in different ways based on the website content, but in the general case all such programs cache content and deliver it instead of the web server. That is valid for both dynamic and static websites since the cached content could be simple text or database responses and the reward of using a web accelerator isn't simply the faster loading site, but also the minimized overall load on the server. That way, you could use a lower-end hosting plan which will also cost less while your site visitors could still enjoy high browsing speeds. Few firms supply web accelerators with their hosting packages and they typically offer just one, while we offer three different ones that will allow you to improve the performance of any kind of Internet site significantly.

Web Accelerators in Website Hosting

In case you host your Internet sites inside a website hosting account from our firm, you'll have 3 popular web accelerators to select from if you would like to enhance the sites' efficiency. Memcached is employed for database-driven sites and it caches the calls and requests between an Internet site and its database, so it could decrease the load of such websites tremendously. Varnish caches whole web pages the first time a visitor opens them and delivers them from there on if the same guest opens them again. It does that faster than the hosting server, so it can boost the loading speed of any site as much as 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time applications which functions on the server and not in the visitor's Internet browser. It's used for holiday accommodation booking, chats and other programs where a lot of data has to be processed in real time. The availability of the accelerators depends on the hosting solution which you pick - they may come by default or as an upgrade. In each case, you will be able to include more instances or more memory for each of them.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

The Hepsia CP that comes with our semi-dedicated server solutions shall allow you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your websites. Memcached is one of the most popular accelerators because it can accelerate any API or database-driven site by caching requests and responses, consequently the hosting server shall not have to process identical requests time after time. The platform is perfect for Internet sites developed with applications like Joomla, Mambo or WordPress. Varnish is an effective accelerator which caches any type of content and is also often called an HTTP reverse proxy. It caches webpages which are opened by a site visitor for the first time and provides them each time that very same guest opens them again. Varnish can certainly speed up an Internet site several times as it delivers content faster than any server. Node.js is a platform employed for scalable real-time apps such as chats, Internet browser games or social networks. It processes data in smaller parts the instant a user enters anything, so it operates much more quickly than similar platforms in which users submit sizeable chunks of info that require time to be processed. You could select the number of instances and the dedicated memory for each and every one of the 3 accelerators through your CP.

Web Accelerators in VPS Servers

In the event that you get a VPS server with the Hepsia CP, you'll be able to employ Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your sites. All three accelerators are incorporated inside our packages by default and come with dedicated memory of several hundred megabytes. Node.js is employed to develop scalable applications where real-time interaction is needed - booking websites, online flash games, chats, etcetera. It processes the information in little pieces as the end user is entering it, thus it works more quickly than other platforms which wait for the end users to enter one large bit of data. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator that functions as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it in case the same website visitor opens the same page again, which can easily speed any site several times because Varnish works faster than any server. Memcached is employed for caching API and database responses, so it's ideal for script-driven sites such as WordPress and Joomla. This web accelerator will be able to lessen the load on your server because it'll decrease the number of database queries your sites make.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

Memcached, Varnish and Node.js are offered with all dedicated servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and based on the package deal that you choose, you will also have several gigabytes of dedicated memory for them. Memcached shall reduce the server load by lowering the amount of queries which need to be dealt with as it caches database calls and responses. You'll be able to use it on any Internet site which uses an API or a database - for instance, any website designed with WordPress or Joomla. Varnish could boost the performance of any kind of website by caching whole webpages the first time a guest opens them. The accelerator provides the web pages if the same visitor opens them later on and because it does that faster than the hosting server, the website visitor will be able to browse your Internet site at least a couple of times faster. This is why Varnish is occasionally called an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is an innovative platform that will allow you to develop booking sites, web chats and other programs in which real-time server-user interaction is necessary. It processes the data in tiny pieces as the user fills different boxes and does not wait for all boxes to be filled and processed as one big piece of data, which makes Node.js much quicker than similar apps.
