A web accelerator is a program that accelerates an Internet site, typically by caching its content. There are various sorts of accelerators, but in the general case this kind of applications cache static content or database responses and provide them in place of the web server, therefore increasing the performance of an Internet site significantly. The latter is possible because accelerator applications work faster than a hosting server and not simply will a site function better, but the server load will also minimize, which will enable you to run heavy Internet sites with less resources. We offer three web accelerators with our hosting plans, which will permit you to accelerate any sort of Internet site. In comparison, most website hosting companies do not provide any web accelerators or provide only 1, which limits your choice of web apps in case you would like to employ this kind of software.

Web Accelerators in Shared Website Hosting

When you host your sites within a shared website hosting account from our company, you shall have 3 popular web accelerators to choose from if you'd like to enhance the sites' efficiency. Memcached is used for database-driven sites and it caches the calls and requests between a website and its database, so it can reduce the load of such websites tremendously. Varnish caches whole web pages the first time a site visitor opens them and provides them from there on if the same website visitor opens them again. It does that faster than the server, so it could boost the loading speed of any site nearly 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time applications that works on the server and not within the visitor's browser. It is employed for accommodation booking, chats and other programs where plenty of data has to be processed in real time. The availability of those accelerators depends upon the hosting package which you choose - they might come by default or as an upgrade. In each case, you'll be able to include more instances or more memory for every one of them.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the Internet sites hosted in your semi-dedicated server account depending on the nature of the website content. Memcached, for instance, caches database requests, so it is a superb option for any script program such as WordPress or Joomla. This way, the database web server shall not have to process the same request if a number of users open a website with the same content. Varnish is similar, but it's a general-purpose accelerator since it caches any kind of content the first time a guest opens an Internet site. If that webpage is opened again by the exact same visitor, it'll be provided by Varnish at a much better speed compared to the hosting server. Using this web accelerator shall minimize the load produced by your Internet sites tremendously. Last, but not least, Node.js will enable you to produce scalable web programs such as hotel booking sites or chats. Its advantage over similar platforms is that it doesn't wait for a client to submit a sizable piece of data, but processes whatever the user is entering in real-time. The three 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 can use.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

Memcached, Node.js and Varnish are provided by default with all of our dedicated servers that are ordered with Hepsia as the website hosting Control Panel. These 3 web accelerators come with several gbs of dedicated memory and you could use them to speed up any kind of website. Memcached can significantly minimize the load on the server if you have script-driven websites since it caches database responses, therefore it lessens the amount of database queries that the server has to take care of. Node.js shall allow you to create scalable applications with real-time user-server interaction such as chats or dining booking websites. Its advantage over comparable platforms is that it processes info the moment the user enters it, so all the information is taken care of quicker and in small pieces. Varnish caches entire pages the first time a website visitor opens them and delivers them every time the same guest opens them again, which makes it a universal accelerator for any kind of websites. Because it works faster than any web server, it can speed up a website at least several times and for that reason, Varnish is one of the most popular web accelerators around.
