A web accelerator is a program which speeds up an Internet site, normally by caching its content. There are various sorts of accelerators, but in the typical case this sort of applications cache static content or database responses and supply them in lieu of the web server, hence improving the performance of a website considerably. The latter is achievable because accelerator programs work faster than a hosting server and not simply will a website function better, but the server load will also decrease, which will enable you to run heavy websites with less resources. We provide 3 web accelerators with our hosting solutions, which will enable you to accelerate any sort of website. In comparison, most hosting businesses do not provide any web accelerators or offer only 1, which limits your choice of web apps in case you'd like to use this kind of software.

Web Accelerators in Web Hosting

We provide three of the most well-known web accelerators together with our web hosting services and based upon what plan you'll select when you sign up, they could already be available or they could be an optional upgrade. Varnish is the most widely used one of them and it could be used for any type of website. It caches the web pages the first time a visitor opens them and delivers them at a considerably faster speed compared to the web server each and every time that a website visitor opens them again. Memcached is used to cache API and database calls, so it can boost the speed of dynamic websites like online stores, discussion boards or social networks. Node.js is used for scalable web apps and it operates in real-time, which makes it ideal for server-side data processing - chats, browser games, booking portals, and many others. You shall be able to choose what amount of memory these accelerators shall use and how many instances of each one will run from your Hepsia website hosting CP.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you pick one of our semi-dedicated server solutions, you'll be able to work with Varnish, Memcached and Node.js - three powerful web accelerators. Varnish is a multi-purpose app which caches pages the first time a website visitor opens them and delivers them instead of the server if the site visitor opens them again up to 300% more quickly. Memcached caches API and database calls and responses so the server does not have to process each request, which makes it suitable for database-driven Internet sites, for instance ones designed with Joomla or WordPress. Node.js is employed to create web programs which operate in real-time including chats or accommodation booking sites and it processes each and every bit of information the moment the user enters it as opposed to waiting for big portions of information to be accumulated. The Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with our semi-dedicated solutions will allow you to choose how many instances of every accelerator shall work at a time and how much memory they'll use.

Web Accelerators in VPS Servers

All VPS servers that are integrated with the Hepsia CP come with Varnish, Memcached and Node.js already included and you'll have several hundred MBs of dedicated memory for them by default. Varnish, which is also known as an HTTP reverse proxy, caches web pages the first time a visitor opens them and delivers them in case that guest opens them again, therefore the hosting server will not need to perform any action. Because Varnish works much faster than any server, a website employing this accelerator shall work several times swifter. Memcached is a platform which caches database calls and responses and it is employed for WordPress, Joomla and other script-driven applications that store their content within a database. Node.js is an effective platform for developing scalable web applications. Any data on a site that uses Node.js is processed right away, which makes it a superb choice for dining and accommodation booking sites, web-based chats, web browser games, and so forth.

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 you opt for, you will also have several gigabytes of dedicated memory for them. Memcached can decrease the hosting 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 every site that uses an API or a database - as an example, any website developed with WordPress or Joomla. Varnish can enhance the performance of any type of site by caching whole webpages the first time a visitor opens them. The accelerator delivers the web pages if the very same visitor opens them later on and given that it does that faster than the hosting server, the visitor will be able to browse your Internet site at least a few times faster. That's why Varnish is occasionally called an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is a sophisticated platform that'll permit you to create booking sites, web chats and other programs in which real-time server-user interaction is required. It processes the info in small pieces as the user 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 considerably quicker than similar programs.
