A web accelerator is a program which quickens an Internet site, normally by caching its content. There are many types of accelerators, but in the general case this kind of programs cache static content or database responses and supply them in lieu of the hosting server, therefore enhancing the performance of a site considerably. The latter can be done because accelerator apps work faster than a hosting server and not simply will a site work better, but the server load shall also decrease, which will permit you to run heavy sites with less resources. We provide 3 web accelerators with our hosting packages, which will enable you to increase the speed of any kind of website. In comparison, most web hosting companies don't offer any web accelerators or offer only one, which limits your choice of web apps in case you would like to use such software.

Web Accelerators in Shared Website Hosting

In case you host your websites inside a shared website hosting account from us, you'll have three popular web accelerators to select from if you would like to boost the sites' performance. Memcached is employed for database-driven websites and it caches the calls and requests between an Internet site and its database, so it can lessen the load of such Internet sites significantly. Varnish caches entire web pages the first time a visitor opens them and provides them from there on if the same site visitor opens them again. It does that much faster than the web server, so it can boost the loading speed of any Internet site as much as 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time apps which works on the hosting server and not inside the visitor's Internet browser. It's employed for holiday accommodation booking, chats and other programs where lots of data should be processed in real time. The availability of these accelerators depends upon the hosting package that you pick - they could come by default or as an upgrade. In both cases, you will be able to include more instances or more memory for each of them.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

The Hepsia CP that is provided with our semi-dedicated server plans will allow you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your websites. Memcached is among the most popular accelerators as it can easily accelerate any API or database-driven website by caching requests and responses, therefore the server won't have to process identical requests time and time again. The platform is ideal for sites developed with programs like Joomla, Mambo or WordPress. Varnish is a powerful accelerator that caches any type of content and is also frequently called an HTTP reverse proxy. It caches webpages that are opened by a website visitor for the first time and provides them each time that same site visitor opens them again. Varnish can easily speed up a site several times since it delivers content faster than any hosting server. Node.js is a platform employed for scalable real-time apps such as chats, web browser games or social networks. It processes info in little parts as soon as a user enters something, therefore it works considerably faster than similar platforms in which users submit large parts of info which need time to be processed. You can choose the number of instances and the dedicated memory for every one of the three accelerators via your Control Panel.

Web Accelerators in VPS Servers

If you get a VPS server with the Hepsia CP, you shall be able to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your websites. All three accelerators are incorporated inside our solutions by default and feature dedicated memory of a few hundred megabytes. Node.js is employed to build scalable programs where real-time interaction is necessary - booking sites, online flash games, chats, etcetera. It processes the info in small parts as the end user is entering it, as a result it functions much faster than other platforms that wait for the end users to submit one large piece of info. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator which functions as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it in case the same website visitor opens the same webpage again, which can certainly speed any site several times as Varnish operates faster than any web server. Memcached is used for caching API and database responses, therefore it is appropriate for script-driven sites such as WordPress and Joomla. This web accelerator can minimize the load on your web server as it shall reduce the number of database queries which your Internet sites 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 in accordance with the package deal that you opt for, you will also have several gigabytes of dedicated memory for them. Memcached shall decrease the server load by lowering the amount of queries which need to be dealt with since it caches database calls and responses. You shall be able to use it on every Internet site that uses an API or a database - as an example, any site developed with WordPress or Joomla. Varnish could enhance the performance of any sort of website by caching whole pages the first time a visitor opens them. The accelerator provides the pages if the very same visitor opens them later on and considering the fact that it does that faster than the server, the visitor shall be able to surf your Internet site at least several times faster. This is why Varnish is oftentimes referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is an advanced platform that will permit you to build booking sites, web chats and other programs in which real-time server-user interaction is required. It processes the info in tiny pieces as the user fills different boxes and does not wait for all boxes to be filled and processed as one big piece of information, which makes Node.js way quicker than similar programs.
