A web accelerator is a server-side application that speeds up a website. Such a piece of software may operate in different ways depending on the website content, but in the general case all such applications cache content and deliver it instead of the hosting server. This is valid for both static and dynamic websites because the cached content may be simple text or database responses and the advantage of using a web accelerator isn't simply the faster loading Internet site, but also the reduced overall load on the server. That way, you could use a lower-end hosting package that'll also cost less while your visitors could still enjoy fast browsing speeds. Handful of businesses supply web accelerators with their hosting plans and they often offer just one, while we offer three different ones that'll enable you to improve the performance of any type of site noticeably.

Web Accelerators in Hosting

When you host your websites inside a hosting account from our company, you shall have 3 popular web accelerators to select from if you'd like to enhance the sites' efficiency. Memcached is used for database-driven sites and it caches the calls and requests between a site and its database, so it can easily reduce the load of such websites considerably. Varnish caches whole web pages the first time a site visitor opens them and provides them from there on if the same guest opens them again. It does that considerably faster than the web server, so it can boost the loading speed of any website nearly 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time apps that works on the server and not inside the visitor's world-wide web browser. It's used for accommodation booking, chats and other apps where a lot of data needs to be processed in real time. The availability of those accelerators depends upon the hosting package that you choose - 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 of them.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you pick one of our semi-dedicated server plans, you'll be able to use Varnish, Memcached and Node.js - 3 effective web accelerators. Varnish is a multi-purpose app which caches webpages the first time a website visitor opens them and delivers them instead of the web server if the website visitor opens them again up to 300% quicker. Memcached caches API and database calls and responses so that the hosting server does not need to process each and every request, that makes it perfect for database-driven websites, for instance ones designed with Joomla or WordPress. Node.js is employed to create web apps which operate in real-time like chats or accommodation booking portals and it processes every bit of information as soon as the user enters it rather than waiting for big chunks of info to be accumulated. The Hepsia CP which is provided with our semi-dedicated solutions will enable you to pick how many instances of each accelerator shall work at a time and how much memory they'll use.

Web Accelerators in VPS Servers

All VPS servers that are incorporated with the Hepsia CP come with Varnish, Memcached and Node.js already included and you'll receive several hundred MBs of dedicated memory for them by default. Varnish, which is also referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy, caches web pages the first time a guest opens them and delivers them in case that visitor opens them again, therefore the server shall not need to perform any action. Since Varnish operates faster than any web server, a site employing this accelerator will function several times quicker. Memcached is a platform which caches database calls and responses and it is used for WordPress, Joomla and other script-driven apps that store their content in a database. Node.js is an efficient platform for building scalable web programs. Any info on an Internet site that employs Node.js is processed right away, making it a fantastic choice for dining and accommodation booking Internet sites, web-based chats, browser games, and so forth.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

Memcached, Varnish and Node.js are offered with all dedicated servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and based on the plan which you opt for, you shall also have several gbs of dedicated memory for them. Memcached can reduce the server load by lowering the number of queries which need to be taken care of since it caches database calls and responses. You will be able to use it on every Internet site that uses an API or a database - for instance, any website developed with WordPress or Joomla. Varnish can easily boost the performance of any type of Internet site by caching whole webpages the first time a visitor opens them. The accelerator delivers the web pages if the very same visitor opens them afterwards and because it does that way quicker than the server, the visitor shall be able to surf your site at least a few times faster. This is why Varnish is oftentimes categorised as an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is an advanced platform which will allow you to build booking sites, web chats and other applications in which real-time server-user interaction is needed. It processes the information in tiny bits as the user fills different boxes and does not wait for all boxes to be filled and processed as one big chunk of information, which makes Node.js much faster than similar programs.
