A web accelerator is an application which quickens an Internet site, normally by caching its content. There are various kinds of accelerators, but in the typical case such apps cache static content or database responses and provide them in lieu of the hosting server, hence improving the performance of a website greatly. The latter is achievable because accelerator apps work faster than a hosting server and not simply will a site work better, but the server load will also minimize, which will enable you to run heavy sites with less system resources. We provide 3 web accelerators with our hosting plans, which will allow you to increase the speed of any sort of site. In comparison, most hosting service providers do not provide any web accelerators or offer only one, which limits your choice of web apps if you want to employ such software.

Web Accelerators in Website Hosting

If you host your Internet sites in a website hosting account from our company, you will have 3 popular web accelerators to pick from if you'd like to improve the sites' performance. Memcached is used for database-driven websites and it caches the calls and requests between an Internet site and its database, so it could reduce the load of such sites substantially. Varnish caches entire webpages the first time a visitor opens them and provides them from there on if the same guest opens them again. It does that much faster than the server, so it can increase the loading speed of any site approximately 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time applications that works on the hosting server and not within the visitor's world-wide web browser. It is employed for accommodation booking, chats and other apps where a lot of data has to be processed in real time. The availability of these accelerators depends upon the hosting package which you choose - they could come by default or as an upgrade. In each case, you'll be able to add more instances or more memory for each one of them.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

The Hepsia CP which comes with our semi-dedicated server plans shall allow you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your sites. Memcached is among the most famous accelerators since it can easily increase the speed of any API or database-driven website by caching requests and responses, thus the hosting server shall not need to process identical requests again and again. The platform is perfect for Internet sites created with apps like Joomla, Mambo or WordPress. Varnish is a powerful accelerator that caches any kind of content and is also often called an HTTP reverse proxy. It caches pages which are opened by a site visitor for the first time and provides them each and every time that very same site visitor opens them again. Varnish can easily speed up a site several times since it delivers content quicker than any web server. Node.js is a platform used for scalable real-time applications like chats, browser games or social networks. It processes information in little pieces the moment a user enters something, so it functions considerably faster than similar platforms in which users submit big pieces of info which need time to be processed. You'll be able to choose the number of instances and the dedicated memory for each of the 3 accelerators using your CP.

Web Accelerators in VPS Servers

In case you obtain a VPS server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to employ Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your Internet sites. All three accelerators are incorporated within our plans by default and offer dedicated memory of a few hundred megabytes. Node.js is employed to build scalable applications where real-time interaction is needed - booking Internet sites, online flash games, chats, and so on. It processes the data in small bits as the user is entering it, therefore it works more quickly than other platforms that wait for the users to input one massive part of info. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator that works as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it if the same guest opens the same page again, which can easily speed any site several times as Varnish operates faster than any server. Memcached is employed for caching API and database responses, so it is appropriate for script-driven sites such as WordPress and Joomla. This web accelerator can easily lessen the load on your web server since it shall reduce the number of database queries which your Internet sites make.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

If you obtain a dedicated server from our company and you select Hepsia as the hosting CP, you shall be able to employ Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your Internet sites. All packages come with several gigabytes of memory dedicated to those accelerators and the actual amount depends on the package that you choose. Node.js is employed for scalable online programs such as browser games or hotel booking and it processes the information right away as the client enters it, which makes it faster than very similar platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you use it for a script-driven site, not only will the site speed up, but also the load on the hosting server will minimize as there will be fewer database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it isn't limited to databases. Instead, it caches whole web pages once a visitor opens them and provides them instead of the web server every time the same visitor opens them later on. Due to the fact that Varnish processes web requests considerably faster than any web server, the efficiency of a website using this accelerator can increase as much as 300%.
