A web accelerator is a program that speeds up a site, typically by caching its content. There are various types of accelerators, but in the common case this kind of applications cache static content or database responses and provide them in lieu of the server, thus improving the performance of a website 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 will also decline, which will permit you to run heavy Internet sites with less system resources. We offer three web accelerators with our hosting solutions, which will enable you to increase the speed of any kind of Internet site. In comparison, most web hosting firms don't offer any web accelerators or offer only 1, which limits your choice of web applications in the event that you would like to employ this type of software.

Web Accelerators in Website Hosting

Our website hosting solutions come with three web accelerators that you could use depending on the sites which you'd like to run. Memcached is used to cache database or API calls and responses, which could drastically improve the performance of dynamic Internet sites. Varnish is a popular HTTP accelerator which caches pages and delivers them to the website visitors much quicker than the web server after the first time they open them. Node.js is an event-driven platform employed for scalable real-time applications for example booking sites. Based on the Internet hosting plan you choose, these three apps could already be included or might be optional upgrades. In any case, you will be able to pick how many instances of each of them shall be at your disposal and what amount of memory they ought to use. These accelerators are provided only by a handful of web hosting companies, including ours, and they could boost the speed of your web apps drastically.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

You shall be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the Internet sites hosted inside your semi-dedicated server account in accordance with the nature of the website content. Memcached, in particular, caches database requests, therefore it's a fantastic option for any script program like WordPress or Joomla. That way, the database hosting server won't have to process the very same request if a number of users open a website with the same content. Varnish is similar, but it's a general-purpose accelerator as it caches any sort of content the first time a visitor opens a page. If that webpage is opened again by the same guest, it'll be delivered by Varnish at a greater speed compared to the web server. Employing this web accelerator can minimize the load produced by your websites substantially. Last, but not least, Node.js will permit you to build scalable web applications like hotel booking Internet sites or chats. Its advantage over comparable platforms is that it doesn't wait for a customer to submit a large piece of data, but processes whatever the user is typing in real-time. The three web accelerators are available in the Hepsia CP and you'll be able to choose how many instances of each one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they may use.

Web Accelerators in VPS Servers

All VPS servers which are set up with the Hepsia CP come with Varnish, Memcached and Node.js already included and you shall have several hundred MBs of dedicated memory for them by default. Varnish, that is also often called an HTTP reverse proxy, caches web pages the first time a website visitor opens them and delivers them when that guest opens them again, therefore the hosting server shall not have to perform any action. Since Varnish operates much faster than any server, an Internet site using this accelerator shall operate several times faster. Memcached is a platform that caches database calls and responses and it is employed for WordPress, Joomla and other script-driven programs that store their content in a database. Node.js is an effective platform for building scalable web programs. Any information on a site that uses Node.js is processed instantly, which makes it an excellent choice for dining and accommodation booking Internet sites, web-based chats, Internet browser games, and so on.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

If you choose Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel for your new dedicated server, you will have Memcached, Varnish and Node.js readily available for speeding up your sites. Memcached will be able to decrease the load on the server by lowering the queries your script-driven Internet sites make because it caches database responses. This web accelerator is great for dynamic Internet sites designed with WordPress, Joomla and very similar scripts. Varnish, which is known as an HTTP reverse proxy, caches entire webpages the first time a new visitor opens them. It may be employed to accelerate any kind of site as it provides the cached content much quicker than the server any time a website visitor opens the same site again. You could use Node.js for online applications which call for real-time server-client interaction like online chats or booking websites. Different from other platforms that await the user to enter everything on a form, Node.js processes the data piece by piece 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 three web accelerators.
