A web accelerator is a server-side application that quickens a website. Such a piece of software could work in different ways based on the site content, but in the general case all such apps cache content and deliver it instead of the web server. That is valid for both dynamic and static websites since the cached content may be simple text or database responses and the benefit of employing a web accelerator is not only the faster loading site, but also the decreased overall load on the web server. That way, you'll be able to use a lower-end hosting solution that will also cost less while your visitors will be able to still enjoy fast browsing speeds. Handful of businesses provide web accelerators with their hosting plans and they usually offer only 1, while we offer three different ones that will allow you to enhance the performance of any kind of Internet site substantially.

Web Accelerators in Website Hosting

If you host your websites within a website hosting account from us, you shall have three popular web accelerators to choose from if you'd like to enhance the sites' functionality. Memcached is employed for database-driven websites and it caches the calls and requests between an Internet site and its database, so it can easily reduce the load of such sites significantly. Varnish caches whole webpages the first time a website visitor opens them and delivers them from there on if the same guest opens them again. It does that considerably faster than the web server, so it could increase the loading speed of any website as much as 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time applications which works on the server and not in the visitor's browser. It is employed for holiday accommodation booking, chats and other applications where loads of data needs to be processed in real time. The availability of these accelerators depends on the hosting plan that you select - they might come by default or as an upgrade. In each case, you will be able to add more instances or more memory for each of them.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you choose one of our semi-dedicated server plans, you'll be able to use Varnish, Memcached and Node.js - 3 effective web accelerators. Varnish is a multi-purpose program which caches web pages the first time a visitor opens them and delivers them instead of the hosting server if the website visitor opens them again approximately 300% more quickly. Memcached caches API and database calls and responses so that the hosting server does not have to process every request, which makes it suitable for database-driven Internet sites, for instance ones built with Joomla or WordPress. Node.js is used to build web apps that operate in real-time such as chats or accommodation booking websites and it processes every bit of data the instant the user types it instead of waiting for large chunks of data to be accumulated. The Hepsia Control Panel that is included with our semi-dedicated solutions shall permit you to choose how many instances of every accelerator will work at a time and the amount of memory they'll use.

Web Accelerators in VPS Servers

All VPS servers that are set up with the Hepsia CP come with Varnish, Memcached and Node.js already included and you will get several hundred megabytes of dedicated memory for them by default. Varnish, that's also known as an HTTP reverse proxy, caches pages the first time a site visitor opens them and delivers them if that guest opens them again, so the server won't need to perform any action. Since Varnish works considerably faster than any hosting server, a site employing this accelerator shall function several times swifter. Memcached is a platform which caches database calls and responses and it is employed for WordPress, Joomla and other script-driven apps that store their content in a database. Node.js is an effective platform for developing scalable web programs. Any info on a website that employs Node.js is processed right away, making it a fantastic choice for dining and accommodation booking sites, web-based chats, web browser games, and so on.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

Memcached, Node.js and Varnish are offered by default with all of our dedicated servers that are ordered with Hepsia as the web hosting CP. These 3 web accelerators feature several gigabytes of dedicated memory and you could use them to speed up any type of website. Memcached can substantially decrease the load on the server if you have script-driven Internet sites as it caches database responses, so it lessens the amount of database queries which the hosting server has to tackle. Node.js will permit you to develop scalable apps with real-time user-server interaction including chats or dining booking Internet sites. Its advantage over comparable platforms is that it processes information as soon as the end user enters it, so all the info is managed quicker and in small pieces. Varnish caches whole pages the first time a visitor opens them and provides them each time the same visitor opens them again, that makes it a universal accelerator for any sort of sites. Since it works faster than any server, it could speed up a website at least several times and because of this, Varnish is one of the most popular web accelerators on the market.
