A web accelerator is a program that quickens a website, normally by caching its content. There are different 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, hence improving the performance of an Internet site significantly. The latter can be done because accelerator applications work faster than a server and not simply will a website operate better, but the server load will also decline, which will permit you to run heavy Internet sites with less resources. We offer 3 web accelerators with our hosting packages, which will enable you to speed up any kind of site. In comparison, most web hosting providers do not offer any web accelerators or offer only 1, which limits your choice of web apps if you would like to use this kind of software.

Web Accelerators in Cloud Web Hosting

If you host your sites within a cloud web hosting account from our firm, you shall have 3 popular web accelerators to choose from if you would like to improve the sites' functionality. Memcached is employed for database-driven websites and it caches the calls and requests between an Internet site and its database, so it can minimize the load of such websites tremendously. Varnish caches entire web pages the first time a visitor opens them and provides them from there on if the same guest opens them again. It does that faster than the server, so it could increase the loading speed of any site up to 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time applications which works on the server and not inside the visitor's world-wide web browser. It is used for holiday accommodation booking, chats and other applications where loads of data should be processed in real time. The availability of these accelerators depends on the hosting solution which you pick - they may come by default or as an upgrade. In both cases, you will be able to add more instances or more memory for each of them.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

You'll be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the Internet sites hosted in your semi-dedicated server account in accordance with the nature of the site content. Memcached, for instance, caches database requests, so it is an excellent choice for any script program such as WordPress or Joomla. That way, the database server will not have to process exactly the same request if many users open a webpage with the same content. Varnish is similar, but it is a general-purpose accelerator because it caches any sort of content the first time a visitor opens a site. If this web page is opened again by the very same visitor, it will be provided by Varnish at a much higher speed compared to the hosting server. Employing this web accelerator can minimize the load produced by your Internet sites significantly. Last, but not least, Node.js shall permit you to build scalable web apps such as hotel booking sites or chats. Its advantage over similar platforms is that it doesn't wait for a user to submit a big piece of information, but processes whatever the client is typing in real-time. The 3 web accelerators are available inside the Hepsia CP 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

If you obtain a VPS server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to employ Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your websites. All 3 accelerators are included within our solutions by default and feature dedicated memory of a few hundred megabytes. Node.js is used to build scalable applications where real-time interaction is necessary - booking sites, online flash games, chats, and so on. It processes the information in small pieces as the user is entering it, thus it operates much faster than other platforms that wait for the end users to submit one sizeable bit of information. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator which operates as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it in case the same visitor opens the same page again, which can easily speed any site several times since Varnish works more quickly than any server. Memcached is used for caching API and database responses, consequently it's suitable for script-driven Internet sites such as WordPress and Joomla. This web accelerator can easily minimize the load on your server because it shall lower the amount of database queries that your websites make.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

Memcached, Varnish and Node.js are available with all dedicated servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and depending on the plan that you opt for, you'll also have several gigabytes of dedicated memory for them. Memcached can decrease the server load by lowering the amount of queries which have to be handled because it caches database calls and responses. You shall be able to use it on any site which uses an API or a database - as an example, any website created with WordPress or Joomla. Varnish can easily boost the performance of any sort of website by caching whole webpages the first time a guest opens them. The accelerator provides the webpages if the very same visitor opens them later and given that it does that considerably faster than the web server, the website visitor shall be able to look through your website at least a couple of times faster. That's why Varnish is occasionally referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is an innovative platform that will enable you to develop booking sites, web chats and other applications in which real-time server-user interaction is required. It processes the info in little portions as the client fills different boxes and doesn't wait for all boxes to be filled and processed as one sizeable chunk of data, which makes Node.js much faster than similar apps.
