A web accelerator is a server-side program that speeds up a site. Such a piece of software may work in different ways based on the site content, but in the typical situation all such programs cache content and deliver it instead of the server. That is valid for both static and dynamic websites as the cached content can be simple text or database responses and the benefit of employing a web accelerator isn't only the faster loading site, but also the reduced overall load on the machine. That way, you may employ a lower-end hosting package that will also cost less while your website visitors will be able to still enjoy fast browsing speeds. Several companies offer web accelerators with their hosting packages and they typically offer only one, while we offer 3 different ones which will enable you to enhance the performance of any sort of website noticeably.

Web Accelerators in Cloud Web Hosting

If you host your Internet sites inside a cloud web hosting account from us, you'll have three popular web accelerators to choose from if you'd like to enhance the sites' efficiency. Memcached is employed for database-driven websites and it caches the calls and requests between an Internet site and its database, so it can easily reduce the load of such sites substantially. Varnish caches entire pages the first time a visitor opens them and delivers them from there on if the same visitor opens them again. It does that faster than the web server, so it can easily increase the loading speed of any site nearly 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time programs which functions on the server and not inside the visitor's Internet browser. It is employed for holiday accommodation booking, chats and other applications where loads of data should be processed in real time. The availability of those accelerators depends upon the hosting plan that you choose - they may come by default or as an upgrade. In both cases, you will be able to include more instances or more memory for each of them.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

The Hepsia CP that is included with our semi-dedicated server plans shall permit you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your sites. Memcached is among the most well-known accelerators because it can effortlessly speed up any API or database-driven Internet site by caching requests and responses, consequently the web server shall not have to process identical requests over and over again. The platform is ideal for sites created with applications such as Joomla, Mambo or WordPress. Varnish is an effective accelerator which caches any kind of content and is also known as an HTTP reverse proxy. It caches pages which are opened by a site visitor for the first time and provides them each time that same website visitor opens them again. Varnish can accelerate a website several times as it delivers content faster than any hosting server. Node.js is a platform employed for scalable real-time applications such as chats, web browser games or social networks. It processes data in little bits as soon as a user types something, so it works much more quickly than similar platforms in which users submit large parts of info that require time to be processed. You could choose the number of instances and the dedicated memory for each of the 3 accelerators through your CP.

Web Accelerators in VPS Servers

All VPS servers that are set up with the Hepsia Control Panel come with Varnish, Memcached and Node.js already included and you shall have several hundred MBs of dedicated memory for them by default. Varnish, that's also often called an HTTP reverse proxy, caches web pages the first time a guest opens them and provides them if that visitor opens them again, therefore the web server won't have to perform any action. Because Varnish operates faster than any web server, a website employing this accelerator will operate 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 within a database. Node.js is an effective platform for creating scalable web applications. Any info on a site that employs Node.js is processed right away, which makes it a superb choice for dining and accommodation booking websites, web-based chats, web browser games, etc.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

Memcached, Varnish and Node.js are provided with all dedicated servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and in accordance with the plan that you select, you'll also have several gbs of dedicated memory for them. Memcached will reduce the web server load by lowering the number of queries that have to be handled since it caches database calls and responses. You shall be able to use it on every Internet site which uses an API or a database - for instance, any site developed with WordPress or Joomla. Varnish can easily boost the performance of any sort of Internet site by caching whole webpages the first time a visitor opens them. The accelerator delivers the web pages if the exact same visitor opens them afterwards and since it does that faster than the server, the website visitor shall be able to browse your Internet site at least a couple of times faster. This is why Varnish is oftentimes categorised as an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is an advanced platform that will enable you to create booking sites, web chats and other apps in which real-time server-user interaction is necessary. It processes the data in tiny pieces as the user fills different boxes and doesn't wait for all boxes to be filled and processed as one big piece of information, which makes Node.js much quicker than similar apps.
