A web accelerator is an application which accelerates an Internet site, usually by caching its content. There are various kinds of accelerators, but in the typical case this kind of applications cache static content or database responses and provide them in lieu of the server, hence improving the performance of an Internet site greatly. The latter is possible because accelerator apps work faster than a server and not only will a website operate better, but the server load shall also lessen, which will permit you to run heavy websites with less resources. We provide 3 web accelerators with our hosting packages, which will enable you to speed up any kind of site. In comparison, most website hosting firms don't offer any web accelerators or provide one, which limits your choice of web applications in case you want to employ this kind of software.

Web Accelerators in Cloud Web Hosting

If you host your websites inside a cloud web hosting account from us, you will have three popular web accelerators to pick from if you'd like to boost the sites' performance. Memcached is used for database-driven Internet sites and it caches the calls and requests between a site and its database, so it can easily reduce the load of such websites considerably. Varnish caches whole web pages the first time a visitor opens them and provides them from there on if the same visitor opens them again. It does that much faster than the server, so it can easily increase the loading speed of any website nearly 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time applications that operates on the hosting server and not in the visitor's browser. It's used for holiday accommodation booking, chats and other programs where plenty of data should be processed in real time. The availability of those accelerators depends upon the hosting plan that you select - they could come by default or as an upgrade. In each case, you'll be able to add more instances or more memory for every one of them.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

The Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with our semi-dedicated server plans shall permit you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your websites. Memcached is one of the most popular accelerators because it can accelerate any API or database-driven Internet site by caching requests and responses, therefore the web server shall not have to process identical requests over and over again. The platform is suitable for sites created with apps such as Joomla, Mambo or WordPress. Varnish is an efficient accelerator which caches any type of content and is also known as an HTTP reverse proxy. It caches web pages which are opened by a site visitor for the first time and provides them every time that very same website visitor opens them again. Varnish can certainly accelerate an Internet site several times simply because it delivers content faster than any web server. Node.js is a platform used for scalable real-time programs such as chats, web browser games or social networks. It processes data in smaller bits as soon as a user enters something, as a result it operates much faster than similar platforms where users submit big pieces of information which require time to be processed. You could pick the number of instances and the dedicated memory for each of the 3 accelerators via your CP.

Web Accelerators in VPS Servers

All VPS servers that are incorporated with the Hepsia Control Panel come with Varnish, Memcached and Node.js already included and you'll receive 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 website visitor opens them and provides them in case that visitor opens them again, therefore the server shall not have to perform any action. Since Varnish operates much faster than any hosting server, a site employing this accelerator shall operate several times quicker. Memcached is a platform that caches database calls and responses and it is used for WordPress, Joomla and other script-driven apps which store their content in a database. Node.js is a highly effective platform for building scalable web applications. Any info on a site that uses Node.js is processed in real time, making it a superb choice for dining and accommodation booking Internet sites, web-based chats, web browser games, etcetera.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

Memcached, Node.js and Varnish are available by default with all our dedicated servers that are ordered with Hepsia as the website hosting CP. These three web accelerators include several gigabytes of dedicated memory and you may employ them to speed up any sort of website. Memcached can significantly reduce the load on the hosting server if you have script-driven Internet sites as it caches database responses, so it minimizes the amount of database queries that the hosting server has to take care of. Node.js shall allow you to develop scalable programs with real-time user-server interaction such as chats or dining booking websites. Its advantage over similar platforms is that it processes data the instant the end user enters it, so all the data is taken care of faster and in small bits. Varnish caches whole Internet pages the first time a visitor opens them and provides them each time the same website visitor opens them again, which makes it a universal accelerator for any sort of websites. Since it operates faster than any hosting server, it can easily speed up a website at least several times and for that reason, Varnish is among the most widely used web accelerators out there.
