A web accelerator is an application that accelerates an Internet site, usually by caching its content. There are various kinds of accelerators, but in the common case this kind of apps cache static content or database responses and deliver them in lieu of the server, as a consequence improving the performance of a site greatly. The latter can be done because accelerator apps work faster than a hosting server and not only will an Internet site work better, but the server load will also minimize, which will permit you to run heavy Internet sites with less resources. We offer 3 web accelerators with our hosting packages, which will permit you to speed up any type of Internet site. In comparison, most web hosting firms do not offer any web accelerators or provide only one, which limits your choice of web apps in the event that you would like to employ this type of software.

Web Accelerators in Web Hosting

If you host your Internet sites within a web hosting account from us, you'll have 3 popular web accelerators to pick from if you'd like to improve the sites' performance. Memcached is employed for database-driven websites and it caches the calls and requests between an Internet site and its database, so it could minimize the load of such sites tremendously. Varnish caches entire web pages the first time a website 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 increase the loading speed of any site as much as 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time programs that functions on the web server and not in the visitor's Internet browser. It's employed for accommodation booking, chats and other applications where a lot of data should be processed in real time. The availability of those accelerators depends upon the hosting package that you pick - they might come by default or as an upgrade. In both cases, you shall be able to add more instances or more memory for each of them.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Hepsia Control Panel that is included with our semi-dedicated hosting packages will permit you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your Internet sites. Memcached is among the most well known accelerators since it can effortlessly increase the speed of any API or database-driven site by caching requests and responses, therefore the server will not have to process identical requests over and over again. The platform is suitable for Internet sites built with apps like Joomla, Mambo or WordPress. Varnish is a highly effective accelerator which caches any sort of content and is also often called an HTTP reverse proxy. It caches webpages which are opened by a website visitor for the first time and delivers them each and every time that same website visitor opens them again. Varnish can certainly accelerate a website several times since it delivers content quicker than any hosting server. Node.js is a platform used for scalable real-time programs such as chats, Internet browser games or social networks. It processes info in little parts the moment a user enters something, so it operates much more quickly than similar platforms in which users submit big portions of info which need time to be processed. You could select the number of instances and the dedicated memory for each and every one of the three accelerators using your Control Panel.

Web Accelerators in VPS

All virtual private servers that are set up with the Hepsia CP come with Varnish, Memcached and Node.js already included and you shall have several hundred megabytes of dedicated memory for them by default. Varnish, that's also known as an HTTP reverse proxy, caches web pages the first time a visitor opens them and provides them in case that guest opens them again, therefore the server will not have to perform any action. Since Varnish functions much faster than any hosting server, a website employing this accelerator shall work several times faster. Memcached is a platform which caches database calls and responses and it is employed for WordPress, Joomla and other script-driven programs which store their content inside a database. Node.js is an efficient platform for creating scalable web apps. Any info on a site that uses Node.js is processed instantly, which makes it a superb choice for dining and accommodation booking Internet sites, web-based chats, Internet browser games, etc.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Hosting

Memcached, Varnish and Node.js are offered with all dedicated servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting CP and in accordance with the package deal that you pick, you shall also have several gigabytes of dedicated memory for them. Memcached will reduce the web server load by lowering the amount of queries that have to be taken care of as it caches database calls and responses. You shall be able to use it on any site that uses an API or a database - for example, any website created with WordPress or Joomla. Varnish can easily boost the performance of any type of website by caching whole webpages the first time a visitor opens them. The accelerator delivers the webpages if the exact same visitor opens them later and since it does that much faster than the server, the website visitor will be able to surf your site at least a few times faster. This is why Varnish is often referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is a sophisticated platform that'll enable you to build booking sites, web chats and other applications in which real-time server-user interaction is required. It processes the info in small pieces as the user fills different boxes and doesn't wait for all boxes to be filled and processed as one massive chunk of data, which makes Node.js much quicker than similar applications.
