A web accelerator is a server-side program that speeds up a site. Such a piece of software could function in different ways based on the site content, but in the typical situation all such applications cache content and deliver it instead of the server. That is valid for both static and dynamic websites as the cached content could be simple text or database responses and the advantage of using a web accelerator isn't only the faster loading Internet site, but also the decreased overall load on the server. This way, you could employ a lower-end hosting solution which will also cost less while your site visitors could still enjoy high browsing speeds. Handful of service providers provide web accelerators with their hosting plans and they usually offer only one, while we offer 3 different ones that will allow you to boost the performance of any type of Internet site significantly.

Web Accelerators in Cloud Website Hosting

In case you purchase one of our cloud website hosting packages, you will have three well-known web accelerators at your disposal and you will be able to access them directly through the Hepsia Control Panel that is included with our packages. Varnish is one of the most well-known ones and it can significantly increase the speed of any Internet site because it caches the pages a website visitor opens for the first time and provides them each time that visitor opens them again. Since Varnish works faster than any hosting server, the loading speed of any website using the accelerator will grow significantly. Memcached is employed to cache database and API calls and responses between a visitor and a hosting server, so it is much like Varnish, but is employed primarily for database-driven websites. Since the Internet site will connect to its database a lot less, the overall server load shall be decreased substantially. The third accelerator, Node.js, is employed for scalable online apps like chats and booking websites because it processes info in real time the moment it is entered on the website by the users. Depending on the plan you pick, these accelerators might be available or could be an optional upgrade.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

You shall be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the sites hosted within your semi-dedicated server account depending on the nature of the site content. Memcached, for example, caches database requests, therefore it's an excellent option for any script app like WordPress or Joomla. That way, the database web server will not need to process the very same request if many users open a website with the same content. Varnish is comparable, but it's a general-purpose accelerator as it caches any type of content the first time a visitor opens a page. In case this page is opened again by the very same website visitor, it will be provided by Varnish at a much higher speed compared to the server. Employing this web accelerator will lessen the load produced by your sites drastically. Last, but not least, Node.js will enable you to build scalable web applications such as hotel booking websites or chats. Its advantage over comparable platforms is that it doesn't wait for a client to submit a sizable piece of info, 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 pick how many instances of each one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they can use.

Web Accelerators in VPS Servers

In case you get a VPS server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you shall be able to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your Internet sites. All three accelerators are included inside our packages by default and come with dedicated memory of several hundred MBs. Node.js is employed to develop scalable programs where real-time interaction is needed - booking websites, online games, chats, and so forth. It processes the information in smaller bits as the end user is entering it, therefore it functions more quickly than other platforms which wait for the users to submit one massive bit of data. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator which operates as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it if the same visitor opens the same website again, which could speed any Internet site several times as Varnish works more quickly than any web server. Memcached is used for caching API and database responses, consequently it's suitable for script-driven websites such as WordPress and Joomla. This web accelerator will be able to lessen the load on your hosting server as it shall reduced the number of database queries which your 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 reduce the hosting server load by lowering the number of queries that need to be dealt with because it caches database calls and responses. You shall be able to use it on any Internet site that uses an API or a database - for example, any website built with WordPress or Joomla. Varnish could improve the performance of any kind of Internet site by caching whole webpages the first time a guest opens them. The accelerator delivers the pages if the exact same visitor opens them afterwards and considering the fact that it does that way quicker than the web server, the website visitor shall be able to surf your site at least a couple of times faster. For this reason Varnish is occasionally categorised as an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is an advanced platform which will enable you to build booking websites, web chats and other applications where real-time server-user interaction is required. It processes the information in little pieces as the user fills different boxes and doesn't wait for all boxes to be filled and processed as one big piece of data, which makes Node.js much faster than similar programs.
