A web accelerator is a program that quickens a site, typically by caching its content. There are various sorts of accelerators, but in the general case this sort of applications cache static content or database responses and supply them in lieu of the web server, as a consequence enhancing the performance of a website drastically. The latter is possible because accelerator applications work faster than a server and not simply will a site function better, but the server load shall also decrease, which will permit you to run heavy Internet sites with less resources. We offer 3 web accelerators with our hosting packages, which will enable you to accelerate any sort of website. In comparison, most Internet hosting service providers do not provide any web accelerators or provide just one, which limits your choice of web applications if you would like to use such software.

Web Accelerators in Hosting

In case you get one of our hosting solutions, you shall have three well-known web accelerators at your disposal and you'll be able to access them directly through the Hepsia Control Panel which is included with our solutions. Varnish is one of the most popular ones and it can considerably accelerate any Internet site as it caches the pages which a site visitor opens for the first time and delivers them every time that guest opens them again. Since Varnish works faster than any server, the loading speed of any Internet site using the accelerator shall increase considerably. Memcached is employed to cache database and API calls and responses between a visitor and a server, so it's much like Varnish, but is used mainly for database-driven websites. Since the Internet site will connect to its database much less, the overall hosting server load will be minimized significantly. The 3rd accelerator, Node.js, is employed for scalable online programs such as chats and booking sites because it processes information in real time as soon as it is entered on the site by the users. Based on the plan you choose, these accelerators might be available or might be an optional upgrade.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

You'll be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the Internet sites hosted inside your semi-dedicated server account in accordance with the nature of the website content. Memcached, in particular, caches database requests, so it is a superb choice for any script app such as WordPress or Joomla. That way, the database hosting server won't have to process the same request if a number of users open a webpage with the same content. Varnish is very similar, but it is a general-purpose accelerator as it caches any kind of content the first time a guest opens a page. If that webpage is opened again by the exact same visitor, it'll be provided by Varnish at a much higher speed compared to the server. Employing this web accelerator shall reduce the load produced by your sites drastically. Last, but not least, Node.js will allow you to create scalable web programs like hotel booking websites or chats. Its advantage over similar platforms is that it doesn't wait for a user to submit a big piece of info, but processes whatever the client is entering in real-time. The three web accelerators are available within the Hepsia CP and you shall be able to choose how many instances of every one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they'll employ.

Web Accelerators in VPS Servers

All VPS servers which are set up with the Hepsia Control Panel come with Varnish, Memcached and Node.js already included and you'll get several hundred MBs of dedicated memory for them by default. Varnish, that's also referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy, caches pages the first time a guest opens them and provides them when that visitor opens them again, so the web server will not need to perform any action. Due to the fact that Varnish functions considerably faster than any hosting server, a website using this accelerator shall function several times swifter. Memcached is a platform which caches database calls and responses and it is used for WordPress, Joomla and other script-driven applications that store their content within a database. Node.js is an effective platform for creating scalable web apps. Any information on a site which uses Node.js is processed in real time, making it a great choice for dining and accommodation booking Internet sites, web-based chats, Internet browser games, and so on.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

In case you obtain a dedicated server from us and you select Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel, you will be able to employ Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your websites. All solutions include several gigabytes of memory dedicated to those accelerators and the actual amount depends on the package deal you select. Node.js is used for scalable online programs including browser games or hotel booking and it processes the info in real time as the user enters it, which makes it considerably faster than very similar platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you employ it for a script-driven Internet site, not simply will the site work faster, but also the load on the web server will decrease because there will be a lesser amount of database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it isn't limited to databases. Instead, it caches entire web pages once a guest opens them and provides them instead of the hosting server every time the same visitor opens them later on. Because Varnish processes web requests faster than any hosting server, the overall performance of a website using this accelerator may increase as much as 300%.
