A web accelerator is an application which speeds up a site, typically by caching its content. There are various kinds of accelerators, but in the general case this sort of applications cache static content or database responses and deliver them in lieu of the server, as a consequence improving the performance of a website greatly. The latter is possible because accelerator apps work faster than a server and not simply will a site function better, but the server load will also minimize, which will allow you to run heavy sites with less resources. We provide three web accelerators with our hosting solutions, which will allow you to speed up any sort of site. In comparison, most website hosting companies do not provide any web accelerators or provide only 1, which limits your choice of web applications if you would like to employ such software.

Web Accelerators in Shared Website Hosting

If you buy one of our shared website hosting packages, you shall have three popular web accelerators at your disposal and you'll be able to access them directly through the Hepsia Control Panel which is included with our plans. Varnish is one of the most well-known ones and it could considerably speed up any website since it caches the pages which a visitor opens for the first time and provides them each and every time that website visitor opens them again. Because Varnish works considerably faster than any server, the loading speed of any site using the accelerator will raise considerably. Memcached is employed to cache database and API calls and responses between a site visitor and a server, so it is similar to Varnish, but is employed mainly for database-driven Internet sites. Considering that the Internet site shall connect to its database way less, the overall hosting server load will be decreased notably. The last accelerator, Node.js, is employed for scalable online applications including chats and booking websites since it processes info in real time as soon as it is entered on the website by the users. Depending on the plan you pick, these accelerators may be available or could be an optional upgrade.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

You shall be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the Internet sites hosted in your semi-dedicated server account depending on the nature of the website content. Memcached, for instance, caches database requests, therefore it is a fantastic option for any script app like WordPress or Joomla. That way, the database server won't need to process the very same request if many users open a page with the same content. Varnish is very similar, but it is a general-purpose accelerator since it caches any type of content the first time a website visitor opens a page. If that page is opened again by the same guest, it will be delivered by Varnish at a greater speed compared to the hosting server. Using this web accelerator shall reduce the load created by your websites considerably. Last, but not least, Node.js will allow you to produce scalable web applications such as hotel booking Internet sites or chats. Its advantage over very similar platforms is that it does not wait for a client to submit a sizable piece of info, but processes whatever the customer is inputting in real-time. The three web accelerators are available inside the Hepsia Control Panel and you'll be able to choose how many instances of each and every one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they can use.

Web Accelerators in VPS Servers

All VPS servers which are incorporated with the Hepsia Control Panel come with Varnish, Memcached and Node.js already included and you'll have several hundred megabytes of dedicated memory for them by default. Varnish, which is also known as an HTTP reverse proxy, caches pages the first time a guest opens them and provides them if that guest opens them again, hence the server will not need to perform any action. As Varnish works much faster than any server, an Internet site using this accelerator will function several times swifter. Memcached is a platform that caches database calls and responses and it is employed for WordPress, Joomla and other script-driven applications which store their content inside a database. Node.js is an efficient platform for building scalable web applications. Any information on an Internet site that employs Node.js is processed right away, which makes it a great choice for dining and accommodation booking websites, web-based chats, browser games, etc.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

Memcached, Node.js and Varnish are provided by default with all of our dedicated servers that are ordered with Hepsia as the web hosting CP. These three web accelerators feature several gigabytes of dedicated memory and you could employ them to speed up any kind of site. Memcached can substantially minimize the load on the server if you have script-driven websites because it caches database responses, therefore it decreases the amount of database queries that the hosting server has to tackle. Node.js shall permit you to develop scalable programs with real-time user-server interaction including chats or dining booking sites. Its advantage over comparable platforms is that it processes data the moment the end user enters it, so all the data is managed swifter and in small portions. Varnish caches entire Internet pages the first time a visitor opens them and delivers them each and every time the same visitor opens them again, which makes it a universal accelerator for any type of websites. Since it works quicker than any server, it can speed up a website at least several times and because of this, Varnish is amongst the most popular web accelerators around.
