A web accelerator is an application that accelerates a website, normally by caching its content. There are various types of accelerators, but in the general case this kind of apps cache static content or database responses and deliver them instead of the hosting server, thus boosting the performance of a site drastically. The latter can be done because accelerator applications work faster than a web server and not simply will a site work better, but the server load shall also minimize, which will enable you to run heavy Internet sites with less system resources. We provide 3 web accelerators with our hosting packages, which will allow you to accelerate any sort of Internet site. In comparison, most web hosting service providers don't offer any web accelerators or provide only one, which limits your choice of web applications if you want to employ this kind of software.

Web Accelerators in Shared Hosting

If you get one of our shared hosting packages, you shall have 3 widely used web accelerators at your disposal and you shall be able to access them directly via the Hepsia CP which is included with our solutions. Varnish is one of the most well-known ones and it can tremendously speed up any site because it caches the pages which a site visitor opens for the first time and provides them every time that website visitor opens them again. Since Varnish operates much faster than any hosting server, the loading speed of any Internet site using the accelerator will raise considerably. Memcached is employed to cache database and API calls and responses between a visitor and a server, so it's much like Varnish, but is used largely for database-driven Internet sites. Considering that the site shall connect to its database a lot less, the overall hosting server load will be minimized considerably. The third accelerator, Node.js, is used for scalable online applications like chats and booking websites as it processes data in real time the moment it is entered on the webpage by the users. Based on the plan you pick, these accelerators might 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 superb choice for any script app such as WordPress or Joomla. This way, the database web server won't have to process the same request if many users open a site with the same content. Varnish is very similar, but it is a general-purpose accelerator since it caches any sort of content the first time a guest opens a site. If this page is opened again by the same website visitor, it shall be delivered by Varnish at a much better speed compared to the hosting server. Employing this web accelerator can minimize the load created by your Internet sites significantly. Last, but not least, Node.js will permit you to create scalable web applications like hotel booking websites or chats. Its advantage over very similar platforms is that it does not wait for a customer to submit a substantial piece of information, but processes whatever the customer is typing in real-time. The three web accelerators are available inside the Hepsia CP and you'll be able to choose how many instances of every one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they may employ.

Web Accelerators in VPS Servers

In case you choose your VPS server to be set up with the Hepsia CP, you shall be able to use Varnish, Memcached and Node.js - 3 of the most widely used web accelerators. Varnish caches websites the first time they're visited and delivers them whenever the same individual visits them again, which will speed up any type of site several times. Memcached is employed for dynamic script programs such as Joomla and WordPress since it caches database requests and responses, as a consequence the database hosting server shall not have to process the exact same page each and every time guests open it if the same content should be displayed. Node.js is a platform for building real-time programs like online games and chats. It operates considerably faster than similar platforms since it processes the data in small portions all the time and does not wait for users to input a large piece of data that will require more time to be processed. The three web accelerators are offered with all Hepsia-based VPS plans and feature several hundred megabytes of dedicated memory.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

Memcached, Varnish and Node.js are available with all dedicated servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting CP and based on the plan that you pick, you shall also have several gbs of dedicated memory for them. Memcached shall decrease the hosting server load by lowering the amount of queries that have to be addressed since it caches database calls and responses. You shall be able to use it on every website that uses an API or a database - as an example, any website created with WordPress or Joomla. Varnish can easily improve the performance of any sort of website by caching whole pages the first time a visitor opens them. The accelerator provides the pages if the very same visitor opens them later and given that it does that much quicker than the server, the website visitor will be able to look through your site at least several times faster. For this reason Varnish is sometimes referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is an advanced platform that'll allow you to develop booking sites, web chats and other applications where real-time server-user interaction is needed. It processes the information in small portions as the client fills different boxes and doesn't wait for all boxes to be filled and processed as one massive piece of data, which makes Node.js way quicker than similar apps.
