A web accelerator is a program that accelerates a site, usually by caching its content. There are various kinds of accelerators, but in the typical case this kind of apps cache static content or database responses and deliver them instead of the web server, hence increasing the performance of an Internet site noticeably. The latter can be done because accelerator programs work faster than a web server and not only will an Internet site work better, but the server load shall also lessen, which will allow you to run heavy Internet sites with less resources. We offer three web accelerators with our hosting solutions, which will enable you to increase the speed of any type of Internet site. In comparison, most web hosting businesses don't offer any web accelerators or provide only 1, which limits your choice of web apps in case you would like to use such software.

Web Accelerators in Web Hosting

If you host your websites in a web hosting account from us, you'll have 3 popular web accelerators to pick from if you'd like to improve the sites' performance. Memcached is employed for database-driven websites and it caches the calls and requests between an Internet site and its database, so it can easily minimize the load of such sites drastically. Varnish caches whole pages the first time a website visitor opens them and delivers them from there on if the same website visitor opens them again. It does that faster than the web server, so it can increase the loading speed of any site nearly 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time apps which functions on the hosting server and not in the visitor's browser. It is used for holiday accommodation booking, chats and other applications where lots of data should be processed in real time. The availability of these accelerators depends on the hosting solution which you choose - they might come by default or as an upgrade. In both cases, you shall be able to include more instances or more memory for every one of them.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

You shall be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the sites hosted inside your semi-dedicated server account in accordance with the nature of the site content. Memcached, for example, caches database requests, so it is a great option for any script program like WordPress or Joomla. That way, the database web server won't need to process the exact same request if multiple users open a page with the same content. Varnish is very similar, but it's a general-purpose accelerator because it caches any kind of content the first time a guest opens a site. If this webpage is opened again by the very same guest, it will be provided by Varnish at a greater speed compared to the server. Using this web accelerator shall minimize the load produced by your sites significantly. Last, but not least, Node.js shall enable you to create scalable web programs like hotel booking Internet sites or chats. Its advantage over similar platforms is that it doesn't wait for a customer to submit a large piece of information, but processes whatever the client is typing in real-time. The 3 web accelerators are available inside the Hepsia CP and you will be able to choose how many instances of each and every one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they'll use.

Web Accelerators in VPS Servers

In the event that you choose your VPS server to be set up with the Hepsia CP, you shall be able to use Varnish, Memcached and Node.js - 3 of the most widely used web accelerators. Varnish caches pages the first time they're visited and provides them each time the same individual visits them again, which will accelerate any kind of site 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 have to process the same webpage every time guests open it in the event that the same content should be shown. Node.js is a platform for developing real-time applications like online games and chats. It functions considerably faster than similar platforms as it processes the data in little parts all the time and doesn't wait for users to enter a large piece of data which will require more time to be processed. The 3 web accelerators are offered with all Hepsia-based VPS packages and feature several hundred megabytes of dedicated memory.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

Memcached, Node.js and Varnish are available by default with all our dedicated servers which are ordered with Hepsia as the Internet hosting CP. These three web accelerators feature several gbs of dedicated memory and you can employ them to speed up any kind of website. Memcached can substantially minimize the load on the web server if you have script-driven websites as it caches database responses, so it minimizes the number of database queries which the web server has to handle. Node.js shall allow you to create scalable apps with real-time user-server interaction like chats or dining booking sites. Its advantage over comparable platforms is that it processes data as soon as the user enters it, so all the information is managed swifter and in small portions. Varnish caches entire webpages the first time a visitor opens them and delivers them each time the same guest opens them again, which makes it a universal accelerator for any sort of websites. Because it operates faster than any hosting server, it could speed up a site at least several times and as a result, Varnish is among the most popular web accelerators around.
