A web accelerator is an application that accelerates an Internet site, usually by caching its content. There are many kinds of accelerators, but in the common case such programs cache static content or database responses and supply them instead of the web server, hence increasing the performance of an Internet site significantly. The latter can be done because accelerator apps work faster than a web server and not only will an Internet site function better, but the server load shall also minimize, which will permit you to run heavy websites with less system resources. We provide three web accelerators with our hosting solutions, which will allow you to accelerate any kind of website. In comparison, most hosting businesses don't offer any web accelerators or offer only 1, which limits your choice of web apps if you'd like to employ such software.

Web Accelerators in Hosting

In case you host your websites in a hosting account from our firm, you'll have three popular web accelerators to choose from if you'd like to improve the sites' efficiency. Memcached is used for database-driven websites and it caches the calls and requests between a website and its database, so it could reduce the load of such websites substantially. Varnish caches entire pages the first time a site visitor opens them and delivers them from there on if the same site visitor opens them again. It does that much more quickly than the hosting server, so it could increase the loading speed of any Internet site nearly 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time applications that functions on the hosting server and not in the visitor's Internet browser. It's employed for holiday accommodation booking, chats and other apps where plenty of data should be processed in real time. The availability of those accelerators depends upon the hosting solution that you pick - they might come by default or as an upgrade. In both cases, you'll be able to add more instances or more memory for each one of them.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server solutions shall allow you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js - three of the most powerful web accelerators available. Memcached is used to cache database and API calls and responses, therefore it can easily speed up any script-driven site. You may use it for any Internet site developed with WordPress or Joomla, for example. Varnish is also often called an HTTP reverse proxy and it is a general-purpose caching platform which can be used for any kind of Internet sites. Depending on the content, it can improve the performance of a site close to 300%. Node.js is an innovative system employed to build scalable Internet apps that process information in real time for example booking portals. Its advantage is that in contrast to similar platforms, it processes data consistently and in small pieces instead of waiting for the user to submit one massive piece of data. The accelerators could be enabled for any site through the Hepsia Control Panel and you'll be able to select how many instances of each of them shall work and how much memory they will use.

Web Accelerators in VPS Servers

We offer Memcached, Node.js and Varnish with all VPS servers which are acquired with the Hepsia Control Panel. Your hosting server shall also come with a few hundred MBs of dedicated memory for these accelerators and the exact amount would depend on the package that you select. Memcached is used for script-driven websites as it caches database responses, thus decreasing the number of queries a script sends to its database. It could be used for any script including WordPress or Joomla. Node.js is a powerful platform for creating web applications including booking sites and chats. The real-time interaction between end users and a hosting server is conducted by processing smaller parts of data as soon any user enters anything on the site. In contrast, other platforms await users to enter plenty of info before they process it, as a result they operate slowly. Varnish is a multi-purpose accelerator that caches whole webpages and provides them instead of the hosting server at a considerably faster rate. It is also referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy and it can easily speed up any sort of site.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

Memcached, Varnish and Node.js are provided with all dedicated servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting CP and depending on the package deal that you select, you'll also have several gbs of dedicated memory for them. Memcached will minimize the web server load by lowering the number of queries which need to be handled because it caches database calls and responses. You'll be able to use it on any website that uses an API or a database - as an example, any site developed with WordPress or Joomla. Varnish could enhance the performance of any type of website by caching whole pages the first time a guest opens them. The accelerator delivers the pages if the same visitor opens them later on and since it does that faster than the web server, the visitor shall be able to surf your site at least a couple of times faster. That's why Varnish is often categorised as an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is an innovative platform that will allow you to develop booking sites, web chats and other programs where real-time server-user interaction is required. It processes the information in little parts as the client fills different boxes and doesn't wait for all boxes to be filled and processed as one large piece of info, which makes Node.js considerably quicker than similar applications.
