A web accelerator is a program that speeds up a site, normally by caching its content. There are various kinds of accelerators, but in the general case this kind of programs cache static content or database responses and supply them in lieu of the web server, hence improving the performance of an Internet site considerably. The latter can be done because accelerator programs work faster than a web server and not only will a site work better, but the server load will also lessen, which will allow you to run heavy sites with less resources. We provide three web accelerators with our hosting solutions, which will allow you to speed up any kind of Internet site. In comparison, most web hosting businesses do not provide any web accelerators or provide just one, which limits your choice of web applications in case you'd like to use this type of software.

Web Accelerators in Hosting

Our hosting packages come with three web accelerators which you can employ depending on the sites that you would like to run. Memcached is used to cache database or API calls and responses, which can drastically enhance the efficiency of dynamic Internet sites. Varnish is a popular HTTP accelerator which caches web pages and provides them to the site visitors considerably quicker than the web server after the first time they open them. Node.js is an event-driven platform used for scalable real-time programs for example booking websites. Depending upon the hosting plan you select, these 3 applications could already be included or may be optional upgrades. Either way, you will be able to pick how many instances of each one of them shall be at your disposal and how much memory they should employ. These accelerators are offered only by a few web hosting service providers, including ours, and they can increase the speed of your web apps substantially.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You shall be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the sites hosted in your semi-dedicated hosting account depending on the nature of the website content. Memcached, for instance, caches database requests, so it is a great option for any script app like WordPress or Joomla. That way, the database server won't need to process the same request if a number of users open a webpage with the same content. Varnish is very similar, but it is a general-purpose accelerator because it caches any type of content the first time a website visitor opens an Internet site. If that page is opened again by the exact same website visitor, it will be provided by Varnish at a greater speed compared to the server. Employing this web accelerator shall lessen the load generated by your sites drastically. Last, but not least, Node.js shall permit you to produce scalable web applications such as hotel booking Internet sites or chats. Its advantage over similar platforms is that it does not wait for a user to submit a sizable piece of data, but processes whatever the customer is entering in real-time. The 3 web accelerators are available inside the Hepsia CP and you'll be able to select how many instances of every one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they can employ.

Web Accelerators in VPS

In case you obtain a virtual private server with the Hepsia CP, you will be able to employ Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your websites. All 3 accelerators are integrated within our solutions by default and offer dedicated memory of a few hundred megabytes. Node.js is used to develop scalable programs where real-time interaction is needed - booking websites, online flash games, chats, etc. It processes the data in little bits as the user is entering it, as a result it functions faster than other platforms that wait for the users to input one sizeable piece of info. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator which operates as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it when the same visitor opens the same website again, which can easily speed any Internet site several times due to the fact that Varnish works more quickly than any hosting server. Memcached is employed for caching API and database responses, consequently it is ideal for script-driven websites such as WordPress and Joomla. This web accelerator can easily lessen the load on your web server because it'll lower the number of database queries which your Internet sites make.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Hosting

Memcached, Varnish and Node.js come with all dedicated servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting CP and depending on the plan that you select, you shall also have several gigabytes of dedicated memory for them. Memcached will lessen the web server load by lowering the amount of queries which have to be handled since it caches database calls and responses. You will be able to use it on every website which uses an API or a database - as an illustration, any website built with WordPress or Joomla. Varnish can easily improve the performance of any kind of website by caching whole pages the first time a visitor opens them. The accelerator delivers the web pages if the very same visitor opens them later on and given that it does that much faster than the hosting server, the website visitor will be able to surf your Internet site at least several times faster. That's why Varnish is occasionally referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is a sophisticated platform that will allow you to develop booking sites, web chats and other programs where real-time server-user interaction is necessary. It processes the data in small pieces as the user fills different boxes and does not wait for all boxes to be filled and processed as one large chunk of data, which makes Node.js way quicker than similar applications.
