A web accelerator is a server-side app that accelerates a website. Such a piece of software may operate in different ways depending upon the website content, but in the general case all such applications cache content and deliver it instead of the server. This is valid for both dynamic and static sites since the cached content can be simple text or database responses and the advantage of using a web accelerator is not simply the faster loading site, but also the lessened overall load on the web server. This way, you may employ a lower-end hosting solution that will also cost less while your site visitors could still enjoy high browsing speeds. Several companies provide web accelerators with their hosting plans and they usually offer just 1, while we offer three different ones that will enable you to improve the performance of any kind of site significantly.

Web Accelerators in Cloud Website Hosting

Our cloud website hosting packages come with three web accelerators that you will be able to use depending on the Internet sites that you'd like to run. Memcached is employed to cache database or API calls and responses, which can tremendously boost the functionality of dynamic websites. Varnish is a popular HTTP accelerator which caches pages and provides them to the visitors faster than the server after the first time they open them. Node.js is an event-driven platform employed for scalable real-time applications including booking websites. With respect to the web hosting plan you choose, these 3 applications may already be included or might be optional upgrades. In any case, you will be able to choose how many instances of each of them will be at your disposal and how much memory they ought to employ. These accelerators are offered only by a few web hosting service providers, including ours, and they could increase the speed of your web programs considerably.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the websites hosted inside your semi-dedicated hosting account based on the nature of the site content. Memcached, in particular, caches database requests, therefore it's a great choice for any script application like WordPress or Joomla. That way, the database server will not have to process the very same request if multiple users open a page with the same content. Varnish is comparable, but it is a general-purpose accelerator since it caches any type of content the first time a guest opens a site. In case that page is opened again by the very same visitor, it'll be delivered by Varnish at a much higher speed compared to the server. Employing this web accelerator will minimize the load generated by your Internet sites substantially. Last, but not least, Node.js will allow you to produce scalable web programs like hotel booking sites or chats. Its advantage over very similar platforms is that it doesn't wait for a customer to submit a large piece of information, but processes whatever the client is entering in real-time. The three web accelerators are available inside the Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to pick how many instances of each one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they may employ.

Web Accelerators in VPS Web Hosting

In the event that you get a virtual private server with the Hepsia CP, you shall be able to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your websites. All 3 accelerators are incorporated inside our plans by default and feature dedicated memory of several hundred MBs. Node.js is employed to build scalable programs where real-time interaction is needed - booking websites, online games, chats, etcetera. It processes the info in small portions as the user is entering it, thus it works more quickly than other platforms which wait for the end users to submit one massive part of data. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator that operates as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it when the same website visitor opens the same webpage again, which could speed any site several times because Varnish operates a lot quicker than any hosting server. Memcached is employed for caching API and database responses, consequently it is suitable for script-driven Internet sites such as WordPress and Joomla. This web accelerator can minimize the load on your hosting server since it'll reduce the number of database queries which your websites make.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers Hosting

If you select Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel for your new dedicated server, you will have Memcached, Varnish and Node.js at your disposal for accelerating your Internet sites. Memcached can easily minimize the load on the web server by lowering the queries your script-driven sites make since it caches database responses. This web accelerator is great for dynamic websites created with WordPress, Joomla and comparable scripts. Varnish, which is often called an HTTP reverse proxy, caches whole websites the first time a new guest opens them. It may be used to speed up any type of site since it provides the cached content faster than the hosting server every time a website visitor opens the same site again. You'll be able to use Node.js for online programs that require real-time server-client interaction such as online chats or booking Internet sites. In contrast to other platforms that await the user to input everything on a form, Node.js processes the info little by little as the user fills each box, so it works considerably faster and more effectively. All dedicated server plans include several gigabytes of memory dedicated to those 3 web accelerators.
