A web accelerator is an application that quickens a website, typically by caching its content. There are different sorts of accelerators, but in the general case this kind of apps cache static content or database responses and supply them in place of the server, thus boosting the performance of a site considerably. The latter can be done because accelerator applications work faster than a web server and not only will a website function better, but the server load shall also minimize, which will permit you to run heavy sites with less system resources. We provide three web accelerators with our hosting packages, which will enable you to accelerate any kind of Internet site. In comparison, most website hosting service providers don't offer any web accelerators or provide one, which limits your choice of web applications if you want to use such software.

Web Accelerators in Cloud Hosting

If you host your Internet sites within a cloud hosting account from our firm, you will have three popular web accelerators to select from if you would like to improve the sites' efficiency. Memcached is used for database-driven sites and it caches the calls and requests between a website and its database, so it could decrease the load of such Internet sites tremendously. Varnish caches entire pages the first time a site visitor opens them and provides them from there on if the same website visitor opens them again. It does that much faster than the server, so it can easily increase the loading speed of any site nearly 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time apps which works on the hosting server and not within the visitor's world-wide web browser. It is used for holiday accommodation booking, chats and other applications where a lot of data should be processed in real time. The availability of these accelerators depends upon the hosting solution which you choose - they could come by default or as an upgrade. In each case, you will be able to include more instances or more memory for every one of them.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the websites hosted within your semi-dedicated server account depending on the nature of the website content. Memcached, for instance, caches database requests, so it is a fantastic option for any script program such as WordPress or Joomla. That way, the database hosting server won't need to process the exact same request if many users open a webpage with the same content. Varnish is similar, but it's a general-purpose accelerator since it caches any kind of content the first time a guest opens a site. If that webpage is opened again by the same guest, it shall be delivered by Varnish at a greater speed compared to the hosting server. Using this web accelerator shall decrease the load produced by your websites tremendously. Last, but not least, Node.js shall permit you to build scalable web programs such as hotel booking websites or chats. Its advantage over very similar platforms is that it does not wait for a customer to submit a large piece of information, but processes whatever the client is typing in real-time. The three web accelerators are available within the Hepsia CP and you shall 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

If you get a VPS server with the Hepsia CP, you'll be able to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your websites. All 3 accelerators are integrated in our packages by default and feature dedicated memory of a few hundred megabytes. Node.js is employed to develop scalable applications where real-time interaction is required - booking websites, online flash games, chats, etcetera. It processes the data in small parts as the end user is entering it, therefore it works quicker than other platforms which wait for the users to enter one large piece of data. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator which functions as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it in case the same website visitor opens the same website again, which can easily speed any website several times due to the fact that Varnish functions quicker than any server. Memcached is employed for caching API and database responses, therefore it's suitable for script-driven sites such as WordPress and Joomla. This web accelerator will be able to reduce the load on your server because it shall decrease the amount of database queries your Internet sites make.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

In case you get a dedicated server from our company and you select Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel, you will be able to use Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your websites. All packages include several gigabytes of memory dedicated to those accelerators and the specific amount depends on the plan you choose. Node.js is employed for scalable online apps such as browser games or hotel booking and it processes the info instantly as the user enters it, which makes it considerably faster than similar platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you use it for a script-driven Internet site, not simply will the Internet site speed up, but also the load on the hosting server will reduce since there will be less database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it is not limited to databases. Instead, it caches entire websites once a website visitor opens them and provides them instead of the hosting server whenever the same visitor opens them later. Because Varnish processes web requests much quicker than any web server, the overall performance of a website using this accelerator may increase around 300%.
