A web accelerator is a software application which speeds up a website typically by caching content and providing it instead of the server. Such apps could be used for both static and dynamic websites since there are a variety of accelerators that can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The main advantage of employing a web accelerator is that a given website shall perform significantly faster without employing extra system resources. Quite the opposite, such a website will require a lesser amount of resources to operate since the web accelerator will tackle most requests rather than the hosting server. Contrary to many companies which do not offer web accelerators with their plans or offer only one, we offer three different ones that'll permit you to speed up your Internet sites regardless of their type or content.

Web Accelerators in Cloud Hosting

Our cloud hosting solutions come with three web accelerators which you can employ depending on the sites which you'd like to run. Memcached is employed to cache database or API calls and responses, which could tremendously improve the efficiency of dynamic websites. Varnish is a popular HTTP accelerator which caches web pages and provides them to the site visitors much faster than the web server after the first time they open them. Node.js is an event-driven platform employed for scalable real-time apps for example booking websites. Depending on the web hosting package you choose, these three apps might already be included or may be optional upgrades. Regardless, you shall be able to choose 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 several hosting providers, including ours, and they can easily boost the speed of your web programs significantly.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

You shall be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the sites hosted within your semi-dedicated server account in accordance with the nature of the website content. Memcached, in particular, caches database requests, so it is a fantastic choice for any script app such as WordPress or Joomla. This way, the database web server will not need 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 as it caches any type of content the first time a website visitor opens a site. In case that webpage is opened again by the same guest, it will be provided by Varnish at a greater speed compared to the server. Employing this web accelerator can minimize the load produced by your Internet sites drastically. Last, but not least, Node.js shall allow you to create scalable web programs like hotel booking sites or chats. Its advantage over comparable platforms is that it does not wait for a client to submit a sizable piece of info, but processes whatever the customer is inputting in real-time. The 3 web accelerators are available in the Hepsia CP and you shall be able to pick how many instances of each and every one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they may employ.

Web Accelerators in VPS Servers

All VPS servers that are incorporated with the Hepsia CP come with Varnish, Memcached and Node.js already included and you shall get several hundred megabytes of dedicated memory for them by default. Varnish, that's also often called an HTTP reverse proxy, caches pages the first time a visitor opens them and provides them when that guest opens them again, therefore the hosting server shall not need to perform any action. As Varnish functions faster than any server, a website using this accelerator will operate 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 that store their content within a database. Node.js is a powerful platform for creating scalable web applications. Any information on a site that employs Node.js is processed instantly, which makes it a fantastic choice for dining and accommodation booking Internet sites, web-based chats, browser games, and so on.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

Memcached, Varnish and Node.js are available with all dedicated servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and based on the package you pick, you will also have several gigabytes of dedicated memory for them. Memcached will minimize the hosting server load by lowering the number of queries which have to be dealt with because it caches database calls and responses. You will be able to use it on any Internet site which uses an API or a database - for instance, any site developed with WordPress or Joomla. Varnish could boost the performance of any sort of Internet site by caching whole pages the first time a visitor opens them. The accelerator provides the webpages if the same visitor opens them later on and since it does that faster than the server, the visitor will be able to browse your Internet site at least a couple of times faster. That is why Varnish is sometimes called an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is an innovative platform that'll enable you to develop booking websites, web chats and other apps in which real-time server-user interaction is necessary. It processes the info in small pieces as the client fills different boxes and doesn't wait for all boxes to be filled and processed as one massive piece of information, which makes Node.js considerably quicker than similar applications.
