A web accelerator is a program which speeds up a website, usually by caching its content. There are different kinds of accelerators, but in the common case such programs cache static content or database responses and provide them in place of the hosting server, thus increasing the performance of a website noticeably. The latter is possible because accelerator applications work faster than a web server and not only will a website function better, but the server load will also decrease, which will permit you to run heavy websites with less resources. We offer 3 web accelerators with our hosting solutions, which will allow you to increase the speed of any type of website. In comparison, most Internet hosting businesses don't provide any web accelerators or provide only one, which limits your choice of web apps if you want to employ this kind of software.

Web Accelerators in Cloud Hosting

When you host your sites within a cloud hosting account from our company, you shall have three popular web accelerators to pick from if you'd like to enhance the sites' functionality. Memcached is employed for database-driven sites and it caches the calls and requests between a website and its database, so it can lessen the load of such websites drastically. Varnish caches whole webpages the first time a visitor opens them and delivers them from there on if the same guest opens them again. It does that faster than the hosting server, so it can easily boost the loading speed of any site up to 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time applications that operates on the web server and not inside the visitor's web browser. It's used for accommodation booking, chats and other programs where loads of data needs to be processed in real time. The availability of the accelerators depends upon the hosting plan which you select - they could come by default or as an upgrade. In each case, you'll be able to include more instances or more memory for each one of them.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

The Hepsia Control Panel which is included with our semi-dedicated server plans will enable you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your Internet sites. Memcached is among the most well known accelerators since it can speed up any API or database-driven Internet site by caching requests and responses, thus the hosting server shall not need to process identical requests again and again. The platform is ideal for websites developed with applications like Joomla, Mambo or WordPress. Varnish is a highly effective accelerator that caches any type of content and is also often called an HTTP reverse proxy. It caches pages which are opened by a website visitor for the first time and delivers them each and every time that same site visitor opens them again. Varnish can certainly accelerate a site several times as it delivers content faster than any web server. Node.js is a platform used for scalable real-time apps such as chats, browser games or social networks. It processes info in little pieces the instant a user enters something, therefore it works faster than similar platforms where users submit massive pieces of info which need time to be processed. You can select the number of instances and the dedicated memory for each of the 3 accelerators through your Control Panel.

Web Accelerators in VPS Servers

If you choose your VPS server to be set up with the Hepsia Control Panel, you shall be able to use Varnish, Memcached and Node.js - three of the most popular web accelerators. Varnish caches webpages the first time they are visited and delivers them every time the same person visits them again, which shall boost any sort of Internet site several times. Memcached is used for dynamic script programs such as Joomla and WordPress since it caches database requests and responses, as a result the database server will not need to process the very same webpage each time visitors open it in the event that the same content should be shown. Node.js is a platform for creating real-time applications for example online games and chats. It works much faster than similar platforms because it processes the data in tiny parts all the time and doesn't wait for users to submit a sizable piece of data which will require more time to be processed. The three web accelerators are offered with all Hepsia-based VPS packages and include several hundred MBs of dedicated memory.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

Memcached, Varnish and Node.js are available with all dedicated servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting CP and depending on the plan which you opt for, you will also have several gbs of dedicated memory for them. Memcached will minimize the hosting server load by lowering the amount of queries that need to be taken care of since it caches database calls and responses. You shall be able to use it on every Internet site which uses an API or a database - for instance, any site built with WordPress or Joomla. Varnish can improve the performance of any kind of site by caching whole pages the first time a visitor opens them. The accelerator delivers the pages if the exact same visitor opens them later on and given that it does that much faster than the web server, the website visitor shall be able to look through your site at least a couple of times faster. That is why Varnish is often referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is an innovative platform that'll permit you to develop booking sites, web chats and other programs in which real-time server-user interaction is needed. It processes the info in small pieces as the user fills different boxes and does not wait for all boxes to be filled and processed as one large piece of data, which makes Node.js much faster than similar programs.
