A web accelerator is a server-side program that accelerates a site. Such a piece of software can work in different ways depending upon the website content, but in the typical situation all such apps cache content and deliver it instead of the hosting server. That is valid for both dynamic and static Internet sites since the cached content could be simple text or database responses and the advantage of employing a web accelerator isn't just the faster loading website, but also the lessened overall load on the web server. That way, you'll be able to employ a lower-end hosting solution which will also cost less while your visitors will be able to still enjoy superior browsing speeds. Handful of companies supply web accelerators with their hosting packages and they typically offer only 1, while we offer 3 different ones that will permit you to boost the performance of any sort of Internet site tremendously.

Web Accelerators in Shared Hosting

If you host your websites within a shared hosting account from us, you shall have three popular web accelerators to select from if you would like to improve the sites' functionality. Memcached is employed for database-driven Internet sites and it caches the calls and requests between a site and its database, so it can easily minimize the load of such sites tremendously. Varnish caches entire webpages 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 web server, so it can easily raise the loading speed of any website up to 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time applications that operates on the server and not in the visitor's browser. It's employed for holiday accommodation booking, chats and other applications where plenty of data has to be processed in real time. The availability of these accelerators depends on the hosting solution which you select - they may come by default or as an upgrade. In both cases, you shall be able to include more instances or more memory for each one of them.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

The Hepsia CP which is provided with our semi-dedicated server solutions will allow you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your websites. Memcached is one of the most well-known accelerators as it can increase the speed of any API or database-driven website by caching requests and responses, as a result the server will not have to process identical requests again and again. The platform is suitable for Internet sites designed with applications like Joomla, Mambo or WordPress. Varnish is a highly effective accelerator which caches any kind of content and is also known as an HTTP reverse proxy. It caches webpages that are opened by a site visitor for the first time and delivers them every time that same visitor opens them again. Varnish can certainly accelerate a site several times simply because it delivers content faster than any web server. Node.js is a platform employed for scalable real-time applications such as chats, Internet browser games or social networks. It processes information in small bits the moment a user enters something, as a result it functions much more quickly than similar platforms where users submit large chunks of information which need time to be processed. You can choose the number of instances and the dedicated memory for every one of the three accelerators using your Control Panel.

Web Accelerators in VPS Servers

All VPS servers which are integrated with the Hepsia Control Panel come with Varnish, Memcached and Node.js already included and you will have several hundred MBs of dedicated memory for them by default. Varnish, which is also known as an HTTP reverse proxy, caches web pages the first time a visitor opens them and provides them in case that visitor opens them again, so the hosting server shall not have to perform any action. Since Varnish functions much quicker than any hosting server, a website using this accelerator shall function several times faster. Memcached is a platform that caches database calls and responses and it's used for WordPress, Joomla and other script-driven applications which store their content in a database. Node.js is an efficient platform for building scalable web programs. Any info on a website that employs Node.js is processed instantly, making it a superb choice for dining and accommodation booking Internet sites, web-based chats, browser games, etcetera.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

If you get a dedicated server from us and you choose Hepsia as the hosting CP, you will be able to employ Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your websites. All plans feature several gigabytes of memory dedicated to those accelerators and the exact amount depends on the package deal that you choose. Node.js is employed for scalable online programs like browser games or hotel booking and it processes the info instantly as the user enters it, which makes it faster than similar platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you use it for a script-driven website, not simply will the Internet site work faster, but also the load on the hosting server will decrease because there shall be less database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it is not limited to databases. Instead, it caches whole webpages once a website visitor opens them and provides them instead of the server each and every time the same visitor opens them later on. Because Varnish processes web requests considerably faster than any server, the efficiency of a site using this accelerator could increase up to 300%.
