A web accelerator is an application that speeds up a site, normally by caching its content. There are different kinds of accelerators, but in the typical case this sort of applications cache static content or database responses and supply them in lieu of the server, hence boosting the performance of a site greatly. The latter is achievable because accelerator applications work faster than a hosting server and not only will a site function better, but the server load shall also lessen, which will allow you to run heavy websites with less system resources. We provide three web accelerators with our hosting solutions, which will enable you to increase the speed of any kind of website. In comparison, most website hosting service providers don't offer any web accelerators or offer one, which limits your choice of web apps if you want to employ this type of software.

Web Accelerators in Shared Web Hosting

In case you host your Internet sites in a shared web hosting account from our company, you'll have 3 popular web accelerators to select from if you would like to enhance the sites' functionality. Memcached is used for database-driven sites and it caches the calls and requests between a site and its database, so it could reduce the load of such Internet sites substantially. Varnish caches entire 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 could raise the loading speed of any website nearly 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time apps which operates on the web server and not inside the visitor's browser. It is employed for accommodation booking, chats and other applications where plenty of data needs to be processed in real time. The availability of the accelerators depends on the hosting plan which you select - they could come by default or as an upgrade. In both cases, you'll be able to include more instances or more memory for each of them.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the sites hosted within your semi-dedicated hosting account in accordance with the nature of the site content. Memcached, for instance, caches database requests, therefore it's an excellent option for any script app such as WordPress or Joomla. That way, the database hosting server shall not need to process exactly the same request if a number of users open a website 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 visitor opens a site. In case this page is opened again by the very same guest, it shall be delivered by Varnish at a much higher speed compared to the web server. Using this web accelerator can decrease the load produced by your sites significantly. Last, but not least, Node.js will enable you to produce scalable web applications like hotel booking Internet sites or chats. Its advantage over comparable platforms is that it does not wait for a client to submit a big piece of data, but processes whatever the customer is typing in real-time. The 3 web accelerators are available within the Hepsia CP and you will be able to select how many instances of each and every one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they'll use.

Web Accelerators in VPS Web Hosting

In case you get a virtual private server with the Hepsia CP, you will be able to employ Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your Internet sites. All 3 accelerators are integrated within our packages by default and come with dedicated memory of a few hundred MBs. Node.js is employed to develop scalable apps where real-time interaction is required - booking Internet sites, online games, chats, and so forth. It processes the data in smaller portions as the end user is entering it, therefore it functions quicker than other platforms that wait for the end users to submit one large piece of data. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator which works as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it in case the same site visitor opens the same website again, which could speed any website several times since Varnish works more quickly than any server. Memcached is used for caching API and database responses, so it is appropriate for script-driven websites like WordPress and Joomla. This web accelerator can easily reduce the load on your web server because it shall reduce the amount of database queries which your sites make.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers Hosting

If you buy a dedicated server from our firm and you select Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel, you'll be able to use Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your Internet sites. All packages come with several gigabytes of memory dedicated to those accelerators and the exact amount depends on the plan that you select. Node.js is used for scalable online applications such as browser games or hotel booking and it processes the information immediately as the client enters it, which makes it much faster than very similar platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you employ it for a script-driven website, not only will the Internet site speed up, but also the load on the web server will decline because there will be a lesser amount of database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it is not limited to databases. Instead, it caches whole pages once a website visitor opens them and delivers them instead of the hosting server each and every time the same visitor opens them later on. As Varnish processes web requests considerably faster than any hosting server, the overall performance of a website using this accelerator may increase up to 300%.
