A web accelerator is a server-side app which speeds up a site. Such a piece of software may operate in different ways based on the site content, but in the typical situation all such applications cache content and deliver it instead of the web server. This is valid for both dynamic and static Internet sites since the cached content may be simple text or database responses and the benefit of employing a web accelerator isn't only the faster loading site, but also the decreased overall load on the web server. This way, you can use a lower-end hosting package which will also cost less while your site visitors could still enjoy fast browsing speeds. Handful of service providers provide web accelerators with their hosting plans and they usually offer only 1, while we offer three different ones that will enable you to improve the performance of any type of website considerably.

Web Accelerators in Shared Web Hosting

In case you host your websites inside a shared web hosting account from our company, you'll have 3 popular web accelerators to choose from if you would like to enhance the sites' performance. Memcached is employed for database-driven Internet sites and it caches the calls and requests between a site and its database, so it could decrease the load of such Internet sites drastically. Varnish caches entire pages the first time a site visitor opens them and delivers them from there on if the same guest opens them again. It does that much more quickly than the web server, so it could increase the loading speed of any website up to 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time applications that operates on the hosting server and not inside the visitor's world-wide web browser. It is employed for holiday accommodation booking, chats and other programs where plenty of data needs to be processed in real time. The availability of these accelerators depends on the hosting package which you pick - they could 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

You'll be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the sites hosted in your semi-dedicated server account based on the nature of the website content. Memcached, for instance, caches database requests, therefore it's an excellent option for any script app such as WordPress or Joomla. This way, the database web server won't need to process the same request if a number of users open a page with the same content. Varnish is similar, but it's a general-purpose accelerator because it caches any sort of content the first time a guest opens a site. In case that page is opened again by the same website visitor, it'll be delivered by Varnish at a much higher speed compared to the server. Employing this web accelerator can decrease the load generated by your Internet sites drastically. Last, but not least, Node.js will enable you to produce scalable web apps such as hotel booking Internet sites or chats. Its advantage over comparable platforms is that it doesn't wait for a client to submit a substantial piece of info, but processes whatever the customer is inputting in real-time. The 3 web accelerators are available inside the Hepsia CP and you'll be able to pick how many instances of each one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they can employ.

Web Accelerators in VPS Servers

We provide Memcached, Node.js and Varnish with all VPS servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. Your hosting server will also include several hundred MBs of dedicated memory for these accelerators and the actual amount would depend on the package that you select. Memcached is used for script-driven sites since it caches database responses, as a result reducing the amount of queries which a script sends to its database. It can be employed for any script including WordPress or Joomla. Node.js is a powerful platform for developing web apps including booking sites and chats. The real-time interaction between users and a hosting server is conducted by processing small parts of data as soon any user inputs anything on the website. In comparison, other platforms wait for users to input plenty of data before they process it, thus they operate slower. Varnish is a multi-purpose accelerator which caches entire web pages and provides them instead of the web server at a much faster rate. It is also referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy and it can speed up any kind of site.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

Memcached, Node.js and Varnish are provided by default with all our dedicated servers that are ordered with Hepsia as the Internet hosting Control Panel. These 3 web accelerators come with several gbs of dedicated memory and you could employ them to speed up any kind of Internet site. Memcached can significantly minimize the load on the server if you have script-driven sites since it caches database responses, therefore it decreases the number of database queries which the server has to tackle. Node.js shall enable you to create scalable apps with real-time user-server interaction including chats or dining booking Internet sites. Its advantage over similar platforms is that it processes data as soon as the user enters it, so all the data is taken care of quicker and in small parts. Varnish caches entire pages the first time a website visitor opens them and provides them every time the same visitor opens them again, which makes it a universal accelerator for any sort of sites. Since it works quicker than any web server, it can easily speed up a site at least several times and due to this fact, Varnish is one of the most widely used web accelerators out there.
