A web accelerator is a program which speeds up an Internet site, usually by caching its content. There are different sorts of accelerators, but in the common case this kind of applications cache static content or database responses and supply them in place of the hosting server, therefore enhancing the performance of a website significantly. The latter can be done because accelerator apps work faster than a server and not only will a website operate better, but the server load shall also lessen, which will allow you to run heavy Internet sites with less resources. We provide three web accelerators with our hosting solutions, which will permit you to accelerate any kind of website. In comparison, most Internet hosting service providers don't offer any web accelerators or offer one, which limits your choice of web applications in the event that you would like to use this kind of software.

Web Accelerators in Website Hosting

In case you buy one of our website hosting solutions, you will have 3 well-known web accelerators at your disposal and you shall be able to access them directly through the Hepsia CP that comes with our packages. Varnish is one of the most popular ones and it could tremendously increase the speed of any website since it caches the pages a site visitor opens for the first time and provides them each and every time that guest opens them again. Since Varnish functions considerably faster than any hosting server, the loading speed of any site using the accelerator shall increase substantially. Memcached is employed to cache database and API calls and responses between a website visitor and a server, so it is comparable to Varnish, but is used mainly for database-driven Internet sites. Since the website will connect to its database a lot less, the overall hosting server load shall be minimized significantly. The 3rd accelerator, Node.js, is used for scalable online programs like chats and booking sites since it processes data in real time the instant it is entered on the webpage by the users. Based on the plan you select, these accelerators might be available or might be an optional upgrade.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the sites hosted in your semi-dedicated server account in accordance with the nature of the website content. Memcached, in particular, caches database requests, therefore it's a fantastic choice for any script application such as WordPress or Joomla. That way, the database web server won't need to process the same request if many users open a page with the same content. Varnish is comparable, but it is a general-purpose accelerator since it caches any kind of content the first time a visitor opens a site. In case this page is opened again by the same website visitor, it shall be delivered by Varnish at a greater speed compared to the server. Using this web accelerator will decrease the load created by your sites significantly. Last, but not least, Node.js shall permit you to produce scalable web apps such as hotel booking Internet sites or chats. Its advantage over very similar platforms is that it doesn't wait for a client to submit a substantial piece of information, but processes whatever the client is entering in real-time. The 3 web accelerators are available in the Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to choose how many instances of each one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they'll use.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

Memcached, Node.js and Varnish are available by default with all our dedicated servers that are ordered with Hepsia as the Internet hosting CP. These 3 web accelerators offer several gbs of dedicated memory and you can use them to speed up any kind of website. Memcached can greatly minimize the load on the web server if you have script-driven websites as it caches database responses, therefore it lessens the number of database queries which the web server has to tackle. Node.js will permit you to build scalable apps with real-time user-server interaction including chats or dining booking Internet sites. Its advantage over very similar platforms is that it processes info the instant the end user enters it, so all the information is handled quicker and in small parts. Varnish caches whole pages the first time a website visitor opens them and delivers them each time the same website visitor opens them again, that makes it a universal accelerator for any kind of websites. Since it functions quicker than any server, it could speed up an Internet site at least several times and for that reason, Varnish is amongst the most popular web accelerators around.
