A web accelerator is a server-side application which accelerates a website. Such a piece of software may operate in different ways depending on the site content, but in the general case all such programs cache content and deliver it instead of the hosting server. That's valid for both dynamic and static websites as the cached content can be simple text or database responses and the reward of employing a web accelerator isn't only the faster loading Internet site, but also the minimized overall load on the web server. This way, you'll be able to employ a lower-end hosting plan that'll also cost less while your visitors will be able to still enjoy superior browsing speeds. Handful of service providers supply web accelerators with their hosting deals and they typically offer only one, while we offer 3 different ones that'll allow you to boost the performance of any kind of website considerably.

Web Accelerators in Cloud Hosting

Our cloud hosting plans come with 3 web accelerators that you could employ depending on the Internet sites which you would like to run. Memcached is used to cache database or API calls and responses, which can significantly enhance the performance of dynamic websites. Varnish is a popular HTTP accelerator which caches webpages and provides them to the site visitors faster than the hosting server after the first time they open them. Node.js is an event-driven platform employed for scalable real-time apps such as booking websites. Depending on the hosting solution you choose, these three apps may already be included or may be optional upgrades. Regardless, you shall be able to select how many instances of each one of them shall be at your disposal and what amount of memory they should use. These accelerators are provided only by a few web hosting service providers, including ours, and they can boost the speed of your web apps substantially.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

You'll be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the Internet sites hosted within your semi-dedicated server account depending on the nature of the site content. Memcached, for instance, caches database requests, therefore it's a superb choice for any script application such as WordPress or Joomla. That way, the database web server will not have to process exactly the same request if multiple users open a page with the same content. Varnish is similar, but it is a general-purpose accelerator since it caches any type of content the first time a website visitor opens a site. If that page is opened again by the same guest, it shall be provided by Varnish at a much higher speed compared to the web server. Using this web accelerator will decrease the load generated by your sites significantly. Last, but not least, Node.js will permit you to produce scalable web apps such as hotel booking Internet sites or chats. Its advantage over very similar platforms is that it doesn't wait for a customer to submit a substantial piece of data, but processes whatever the customer is inputting in real-time. The 3 web accelerators are available within the Hepsia CP and you will be able to pick how many instances of each and every one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they can employ.

Web Accelerators in VPS Servers

In the event that you choose your VPS server to be integrated with the Hepsia Control Panel, you shall be able to use Varnish, Memcached and Node.js - 3 of the most commonly used web accelerators. Varnish caches sites the first time they're visited and provides them whenever the same person visits them again, which can boost any kind of website several times. Memcached is employed for dynamic script apps for example Joomla and WordPress because it caches database requests and responses, therefore the database hosting server shall not need to process the same website every time visitors open it in the event that the same content should be shown. Node.js is a platform for developing real-time apps for example online games and chats. It functions much faster than similar platforms because it processes the data in little portions all the time and does not wait for users to enter a sizable piece of data which will need more time to be processed. The 3 web accelerators are available with all Hepsia-based VPS solutions and feature several hundred megabytes of dedicated memory.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

In the event that you choose Hepsia as the hosting CP for your new dedicated server, you'll have Memcached, Varnish and Node.js readily available for accelerating your Internet sites. Memcached can minimize the load on the server by lowering the queries your script-driven Internet sites make because it caches database responses. This web accelerator is good for dynamic Internet sites built with WordPress, Joomla and very similar scripts. Varnish, which is often called an HTTP reverse proxy, caches whole pages the first time a new website visitor opens them. It could be used to accelerate any sort of site since it provides the cached content much quicker than the server each time a visitor opens the same site again. You can use Node.js for online programs which demand real-time server-client interaction including online chats or booking websites. Unlike other platforms that await the user to enter everything on a form, Node.js processes the information piece by piece as the user fills every box, so it works much faster and more effectively. All dedicated server packages come with several gigabytes of memory dedicated to these three web accelerators.
