A web accelerator is a program that speeds up an Internet site, usually by caching its content. There are many types of accelerators, but in the general case this kind of applications cache static content or database responses and deliver them instead of the web server, thus boosting the performance of a website considerably. The latter is achievable because accelerator applications work faster than a server and not only will an Internet site function better, but the server load shall also minimize, which will permit you to run heavy websites with less resources. We provide 3 web accelerators with our hosting packages, which will permit you to accelerate any sort of website. In comparison, most web hosting service providers do not offer any web accelerators or offer just one, which limits your choice of web applications in case you want to employ this type of software.

Web Accelerators in Hosting

Our hosting plans come with three web accelerators that you could use depending on the sites that you would like to run. Memcached is employed to cache database or API calls and responses, which can considerably improve the functionality of dynamic websites. Varnish is a popular HTTP accelerator that caches pages and provides them to the website visitors much quicker than the server after the first time they open them. Node.js is an event-driven platform employed for scalable real-time applications for example booking websites. Depending on the web hosting package you choose, these 3 apps may already be included or might be optional upgrades. In any case, you will be able to choose how many instances of each one of them will be at your disposal and what amount of memory they ought to use. These accelerators are provided only by several hosting firms, including ours, and they can easily boost the speed of your web programs significantly.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you opt for one of our semi-dedicated server solutions, you'll be able to take advantage of Varnish, Memcached and Node.js - three powerful web accelerators. Varnish is a multi-purpose app that caches pages the first time a visitor opens them and provides them instead of the web server if the site visitor opens them again up to 300% faster. Memcached caches API and database calls and responses to ensure the server does not need to process each and every request, which makes it suitable for database-driven sites, such as ones built with Joomla or WordPress. Node.js is used to build web programs that work in real-time including chats or accommodation booking sites and it processes every bit of data the moment the user enters it instead of waiting for large pieces of data to be accumulated. The Hepsia Control Panel which is included with our semi-dedicated plans will enable you to select how many instances of each and every accelerator shall work at a time and how much memory they'll use.

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 popular web accelerators. Varnish caches pages the first time they are visited and provides them each and every time the same individual visits them again, which will accelerate any sort of website several times. Memcached is employed for dynamic script applications such as Joomla and WordPress since it caches database requests and responses, as a consequence the database web server shall not have to process the same website every time visitors open it in case the same content should be displayed. Node.js is a platform for creating real-time programs like online games and chats. It works faster than similar platforms since it processes the data in little bits all the time and does not wait for users to submit a large piece of data that shall require more time to be processed. The three web accelerators are available with all Hepsia-based VPS packages and feature several hundred megabytes of dedicated memory.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

Memcached, Varnish and Node.js are offered with all dedicated servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and depending on the plan you select, you shall also have several gbs of dedicated memory for them. Memcached can decrease the web server load by lowering the number of queries which have to be addressed since it caches database calls and responses. You shall be able to use it on every website that uses an API or a database - as an example, any site designed with WordPress or Joomla. Varnish can improve the performance of any sort of site by caching whole pages the first time a visitor opens them. The accelerator provides the web pages if the same visitor opens them later and because it does that considerably quicker than the hosting server, the visitor shall be able to browse your website at least several times faster. That is why Varnish is sometimes called an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is an advanced platform which will allow you to build booking websites, web chats and other applications in which real-time server-user interaction is necessary. It processes the information in small parts as the user fills different boxes and doesn't wait for all boxes to be filled and processed as one substantial chunk of information, which makes Node.js considerably faster than similar programs.
