A web accelerator is a server-side app that accelerates a website. Such a piece of software may function in different ways depending upon the site content, but in the general situation all such programs cache content and deliver it instead of the web server. That is valid for both dynamic and static websites because the cached content may be simple text or database responses and the advantage of employing a web accelerator isn't simply the faster loading site, but also the minimized overall load on the machine. This way, you could use a lower-end hosting package that will also cost less while your visitors will be able to still enjoy fast browsing speeds. Several service providers supply web accelerators with their hosting deals and they frequently offer only one, while we offer 3 different ones that'll allow you to improve the performance of any type of Internet site significantly.

Web Accelerators in Web Hosting

If you buy one of our web hosting solutions, you will have 3 popular web accelerators at your disposal and you shall be able to access them directly via the Hepsia CP which is included with our plans. Varnish is one of the most widely used ones and it could significantly increase the speed of any site because it caches the web pages which a website visitor opens for the first time and provides them each and every time that guest opens them again. Since Varnish operates much faster than any hosting server, the loading speed of any Internet site using the accelerator shall grow substantially. Memcached is employed to cache database and API calls and responses between an Internet site visitor and a server, so it is comparable to Varnish, but is employed largely for database-driven websites. Because the website will connect to its database much less, the overall web server load shall be decreased considerably. The last accelerator, Node.js, is used for scalable online programs like chats and booking Internet sites as it processes data in real time as soon as it is entered on the website by the users. Depending on the plan you choose, these accelerators might be available or could be an optional upgrade.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

You'll be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the websites hosted within your semi-dedicated server account depending on the nature of the site content. Memcached, for example, caches database requests, so it is a superb choice for any script app such as WordPress or Joomla. That way, the database hosting server won't need to process the same request if multiple users open a webpage with the same content. Varnish is comparable, but it is a general-purpose accelerator because it caches any sort of content the first time a website visitor opens an Internet site. If this webpage is opened again by the very same guest, it shall be delivered by Varnish at a much higher speed compared to the hosting server. Employing this web accelerator can lessen the load created by your sites substantially. Last, but not least, Node.js shall allow you to create scalable web applications such as hotel booking websites or chats. Its advantage over similar platforms is that it doesn't wait for a customer to submit a big piece of info, 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 each one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they can employ.

Web Accelerators in VPS Servers

We offer Memcached, Node.js and Varnish with all VPS servers that are obtained with the Hepsia CP. Your web server will also come with several hundred MBs of dedicated memory for these accelerators and the actual amount depends on the plan that you choose. Memcached is used for script-driven Internet sites because it caches database responses, as a result decreasing the amount of queries which a script sends to its database. It can be used for any script including WordPress or Joomla. Node.js is a highly effective platform for developing web applications like booking sites and chats. The real-time interaction between end users and a hosting server is done by processing smaller pieces of data as soon any user enters anything on the webpage. In contrast, other platforms await customers to input a lot of data before they process it, consequently they work slowly. Varnish is a multi-purpose accelerator which caches whole webpages and provides them instead of the server at a considerably faster rate. It is also referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy and it can speed up any type of website.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

Memcached, Node.js and Varnish are provided by default with all of our dedicated servers which are ordered with Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel. These 3 web accelerators come with several gigabytes of dedicated memory and you could employ them to speed up any sort of site. Memcached can substantially reduce the load on the hosting server if you have script-driven websites as it caches database responses, so it decreases the number of database queries the web server has to tackle. Node.js will allow you to develop scalable apps with real-time user-server interaction including chats or dining booking sites. Its advantage over similar platforms is that it processes information the instant the end user enters it, so all the data is handled faster and in small parts. Varnish caches whole Internet pages the first time a website visitor opens them and provides them each and every time the same guest opens them again, which makes it a universal accelerator for any type of websites. As it functions faster than any web server, it could speed up an Internet site at least several times and because of this, Varnish is among the most widely used web accelerators on the market.
