A web accelerator is a server-side program that accelerates a site. Such a piece of software may function in different ways depending on the site content, but in the general situation all such applications cache content and deliver it instead of the server. This is valid for both static and dynamic sites as the cached content can be simple text or database responses and the benefit of using a web accelerator isn't simply the faster loading Internet site, but also the minimized overall load on the hosting server. That way, you can use a lower-end hosting package that will also cost less while your site visitors could still enjoy superior browsing speeds. Several businesses provide web accelerators with their hosting deals and they typically offer just one, while we offer 3 different ones that'll enable you to boost the performance of any type of website noticeably.

Web Accelerators in Cloud Hosting

When you host your Internet sites in a cloud hosting account from our firm, you will have three popular web accelerators to select from if you'd like to enhance the sites' functionality. Memcached is used for database-driven Internet sites and it caches the calls and requests between an Internet site and its database, so it could minimize the load of such sites significantly. Varnish caches entire pages the first time a visitor opens them and delivers them from there on if the same site visitor opens them again. It does that considerably faster than the server, so it can easily boost the loading speed of any Internet site nearly 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time applications which operates on the web server and not within the visitor's Internet browser. It is used for accommodation booking, chats and other programs where plenty of data needs to be processed in real time. The availability of those accelerators depends upon the hosting package which you select - they might come by default or as an upgrade. In both cases, you will be able to add more instances or more memory for each one of them.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

You shall be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the websites hosted inside your semi-dedicated server account depending on the nature of the site content. Memcached, for example, caches database requests, therefore it's a great option for any script program such as WordPress or Joomla. That way, the database server will not have to process exactly the same request if many users open a site with the same content. Varnish is very similar, but it's a general-purpose accelerator because it caches any type of content the first time a website visitor opens a page. If this page is opened again by the same website visitor, it shall be delivered by Varnish at a much better speed compared to the hosting server. Using this web accelerator shall decrease the load created by your Internet sites considerably. Last, but not least, Node.js will enable you to create scalable web apps such as hotel booking sites or chats. Its advantage over similar platforms is that it does not wait for a user to submit a large piece of information, but processes whatever the user is inputting in real-time. The three web accelerators are available inside 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 use.

Web Accelerators in VPS Servers

We provide Memcached, Node.js and Varnish with all VPS servers which are obtained with the Hepsia CP. Your web server will also come with a few hundred MBs of dedicated memory for these accelerators and the specific amount would be determined by the plan that you pick. Memcached is employed for script-driven sites since it caches database responses, as a result reducing the number of queries which a script sends to its database. It could be employed for any script such as WordPress or Joomla. Node.js is a powerful platform for building web apps like booking sites and chats. The real-time interaction between users and a hosting server is performed by processing smaller parts of info as soon any user enters anything on the website. In contrast, other platforms wait for customers to enter a whole lot of info before they process it, thus they operate slower. Varnish is a multi-purpose accelerator that caches entire web pages and delivers them instead of the hosting server at a faster rate. It's also referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy and it can speed up any sort of Internet site.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

Memcached, Node.js and Varnish are offered by default with all our dedicated servers that are ordered with Hepsia as the hosting CP. These 3 web accelerators feature several gigabytes of dedicated memory and you could employ them to speed up any kind of website. Memcached can substantially lessen the load on the web server if you have script-driven sites because it caches database responses, thus it lessens the number of database queries that the hosting server has to deal with. Node.js will allow you to create scalable apps with real-time user-server interaction like chats or dining booking websites. Its advantage over comparable platforms is that it processes info the instant the user enters it, so all the info is managed quicker and in small portions. Varnish caches entire pages the first time a visitor opens them and delivers them each time the same guest opens them again, which makes it a universal accelerator for any type of sites. Because it functions quicker than any hosting server, it can easily speed up a site at least several times and as a result, Varnish is one of the most widely used web accelerators available on the market.
