A web accelerator is an application that quickens a website, normally by caching its content. There are many kinds of accelerators, but in the common case this kind of apps cache static content or database responses and provide them instead of the hosting server, hence boosting the performance of an Internet site noticeably. The latter can be done because accelerator applications work faster than a web server and not simply will a website operate better, but the server load shall also decline, which will permit you to run heavy sites with less resources. We provide three web accelerators with our hosting plans, which will permit you to speed up any sort of Internet site. In comparison, most web hosting firms don't offer any web accelerators or offer only one, which limits your choice of web applications in the event that you want to use such software.

Web Accelerators in Web Hosting

In case you host your Internet sites within a web hosting account from our company, you'll have three popular web accelerators to select from if you'd like to enhance the sites' functionality. Memcached is employed for database-driven sites and it caches the calls and requests between a site and its database, so it can easily minimize the load of such Internet sites considerably. Varnish caches whole webpages the first time a website visitor opens them and provides them from there on if the same site visitor opens them again. It does that much faster than the web server, so it can raise the loading speed of any website up to 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time programs which functions on the hosting server and not within the visitor's browser. It is employed for accommodation booking, chats and other programs where a lot of data needs to be processed in real time. The availability of these accelerators depends on the hosting package that you pick - they could come by default or as an upgrade. In both cases, you will be able to add more instances or more memory for every one of them.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

The Hepsia CP that is provided with our semi-dedicated server packages shall enable you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your sites. Memcached is among the most popular accelerators because it can speed up any API or database-driven Internet site by caching requests and responses, therefore the hosting server won't have to process identical requests time and time again. The platform is perfect for websites built with apps such as Joomla, Mambo or WordPress. Varnish is a highly 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 website visitor for the first time and delivers them each and every time that same site visitor opens them again. Varnish can certainly accelerate an Internet site several times as it delivers content faster than any hosting server. Node.js is a platform used for scalable real-time applications such as chats, browser games or social networks. It processes info in small parts the moment a user types anything, so it works considerably faster than similar platforms in which users submit big parts of data which require time to be processed. You could select the number of instances and the dedicated memory for every one of the three accelerators through your CP.

Web Accelerators in VPS Servers

All VPS servers that are integrated with the Hepsia Control Panel come with Varnish, Memcached and Node.js already included and you shall have several hundred megabytes of dedicated memory for them by default. Varnish, which is also often called an HTTP reverse proxy, caches webpages the first time a site visitor opens them and delivers them if that visitor opens them again, so the web server won't have to perform any action. Since Varnish functions much quicker than any hosting server, a website using this accelerator will function several times faster. Memcached is a platform that caches database calls and responses and it is employed for WordPress, Joomla and other script-driven programs which store their content inside a database. Node.js is an effective platform for creating scalable web applications. Any data on a site which employs Node.js is processed in real time, which makes it a superb choice for dining and accommodation booking sites, web-based chats, Internet browser games, etc.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

In case you buy a dedicated server from our company and you choose Hepsia as the hosting CP, you'll be able to use Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your sites. All plans feature several gigabytes of memory dedicated to those accelerators and the specific amount depends on the package you select. Node.js is used for scalable online apps such as browser games or hotel booking and it processes the information immediately as the user enters it, which makes it much faster than comparable platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you employ it for a script-driven website, not only will the Internet site speed up, but also the load on the server will minimize since there will be less database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it isn't limited to databases. Rather, it caches whole webpages once a visitor opens them and provides them instead of the hosting server whenever the same visitor opens them later on. Since Varnish processes web requests faster than any web server, the efficiency of a website using this accelerator can increase as much as 300%.
