A web accelerator is an application which accelerates an Internet site, usually by caching its content. There are different kinds of accelerators, but in the common case this sort of programs cache static content or database responses and provide them in lieu of the server, therefore enhancing the performance of a site drastically. The latter is possible because accelerator applications work faster than a hosting server and not only will a site work better, but the server load shall also decrease, which will permit you to run heavy Internet sites with less system resources. We offer 3 web accelerators with our hosting solutions, which will permit you to accelerate any kind of website. In comparison, most web hosting companies don't offer any web accelerators or offer one, which limits your choice of web applications in case you would like to employ such software.

Web Accelerators in Cloud Web Hosting

In case you acquire one of our cloud web hosting solutions, you shall have 3 well-known web accelerators at your disposal and you'll be able to access them directly through the Hepsia CP that comes with our packages. Varnish is one of the most well-known ones and it could significantly accelerate any website because it caches the pages that a visitor opens for the first time and provides them each and every time that guest opens them again. Because Varnish works considerably faster than any web server, the loading speed of any Internet site using the accelerator will improve substantially. Memcached is employed to cache database and API calls and responses between a visitor and a web server, so it's much like Varnish, but is used primarily for database-driven Internet sites. Because the site will connect to its database significantly less, the overall hosting server load shall be reduced considerably. The 3rd accelerator, Node.js, is employed for scalable online applications like chats and booking websites because it processes information in real time as soon as it is entered on the website by the users. Based on the plan you pick, these accelerators might be available or might be an optional upgrade.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

You shall be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the websites hosted within your semi-dedicated server account depending on the nature of the website content. Memcached, for example, caches database requests, so it is an excellent option for any script application such as WordPress or Joomla. That way, the database hosting server will not need to process the same request if a number of users open a site with the same content. Varnish is very similar, but it's a general-purpose accelerator because it caches any type of content the first time a website visitor opens a page. In case this web page is opened again by the exact same guest, it'll be delivered by Varnish at a much better speed compared to the server. Using this web accelerator can minimize the load generated by your sites drastically. Last, but not least, Node.js will allow you to create scalable web applications such as hotel booking websites or chats. Its advantage over similar platforms is that it doesn't wait for a client to submit a substantial piece of information, but processes whatever the client is inputting in real-time. The 3 web accelerators are available inside the Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to select how many instances of each one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they'll use.

Web Accelerators in VPS Servers

If you choose your VPS server to be incorporated with the Hepsia CP, you will be able to use Varnish, Memcached and Node.js - 3 of the most widely used web accelerators. Varnish caches websites the first time they are visited and delivers them whenever the same person visits them again, which can accelerate any type of site several times. Memcached is employed for dynamic script programs like Joomla and WordPress as it caches database requests and responses, therefore the database web server won't need to process the very same webpage every time guests open it in case the same content should be displayed. Node.js is a platform for creating real-time applications for example online games and chats. It functions much quicker than similar platforms since it processes the info in small portions all the time and doesn't wait for users to enter a large piece of data that will require more time to be processed. The three web accelerators are available with all Hepsia-based VPS plans and feature several hundred megabytes of dedicated memory.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

Memcached, Varnish and Node.js come with all dedicated servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting CP and depending on the plan you choose, you will also have several gigabytes of dedicated memory for them. Memcached will minimize the web server load by lowering the amount of queries that have to be taken care of as it caches database calls and responses. You will be able to use it on any site that uses an API or a database - as an illustration, any site created with WordPress or Joomla. Varnish could boost the performance of any kind of site by caching whole pages the first time a guest opens them. The accelerator delivers the web pages if the exact same visitor opens them later and since it does that much quicker than the server, the website visitor will be able to look through your website at least several times faster. That is why Varnish is sometimes called an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is an innovative platform that'll allow you to build booking sites, web chats and other applications in which real-time server-user interaction is necessary. It processes the information in small bits as the user fills different boxes and does not wait for all boxes to be filled and processed as one sizeable chunk of information, which makes Node.js way quicker than similar applications.
