A web accelerator is an application that speeds up a site, usually by caching its content. There are different types of accelerators, but in the typical case this sort of apps cache static content or database responses and deliver them in lieu of the web server, therefore improving the performance of an Internet site greatly. The latter is possible because accelerator apps work faster than a hosting server and not only will an Internet site work better, but the server load will also decline, which will permit you to run heavy websites with less system resources. We offer 3 web accelerators with our hosting packages, which will allow you to speed up any type of Internet site. In comparison, most Internet hosting service providers do not offer any web accelerators or provide one, which limits your choice of web applications in case you'd like to use this type of software.

Web Accelerators in Shared Hosting

If you host your websites inside a shared hosting account from our company, 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 Internet sites and it caches the calls and requests between a site and its database, so it can easily minimize the load of such sites drastically. Varnish caches whole webpages the first time a site visitor opens them and provides them from there on if the same site visitor opens them again. It does that considerably faster than the web server, so it can increase the loading speed of any website up to 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time apps which operates on the server and not inside the visitor's world-wide web browser. It is employed for accommodation booking, chats and other programs where lots of data has to be processed in real time. The availability of those accelerators depends upon the hosting solution that you choose - they might 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

In case you choose one of our semi-dedicated server solutions, you will be able to employ Varnish, Memcached and Node.js - three efficient web accelerators. Varnish is a multi-purpose application that caches pages the first time a visitor opens them and provides them instead of the server if the website visitor opens them again approximately 300% faster. Memcached caches API and database calls and responses so the web server doesn't need to process each and every request, that makes it ideal for database-driven sites, for example ones built with Joomla or WordPress. Node.js is used to create web applications which operate in real-time including chats or accommodation booking portals and it processes each bit of data the moment the user types it instead of waiting for sizeable portions of data to be accumulated. The Hepsia CP that comes with our semi-dedicated solutions shall allow you to pick how many instances of every accelerator shall work at a time and what amount of memory they will use.

Web Accelerators in VPS Servers

We offer Memcached, Node.js and Varnish with all VPS servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. Your server shall also include several hundred MBs of dedicated memory for these accelerators and the specific amount would depend on the package deal that you pick. Memcached is employed for script-driven sites since it caches database responses, thus reducing the amount of queries a script sends to its database. It can be used for any script like WordPress or Joomla. Node.js is an effective platform for creating web programs such as booking Internet sites and chats. The real-time interaction between end users and a web server is performed by processing little parts of info as soon any user enters anything on the site. In contrast, other platforms wait for users to input a considerable amount of data before they process it, thus they function slowly. Varnish is a multi-purpose accelerator that caches entire webpages and provides them instead of the web server at a much faster rate. It's also known as an HTTP reverse proxy and it can easily speed up any kind of website.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

In case you buy a dedicated server from our firm and you choose Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel, you'll be able to use Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your sites. All solutions include several gigabytes of memory dedicated to those accelerators and the actual amount depends on the plan that you select. Node.js is used for scalable online programs such as browser games or hotel booking and it processes the data in real time as the client enters it, which makes it much quicker than very similar platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you employ it for a script-driven Internet site, not simply will the website work faster, but also the load on the server will decrease because there shall be a lesser amount of database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it isn't limited to databases. Instead, it caches whole pages once a visitor opens them and provides them instead of the server every time the same visitor opens them later on. Because Varnish processes web requests much faster than any web server, the overall performance of an Internet site using this accelerator could increase around 300%.
