A web accelerator is a server-side application which speeds up an Internet site. Such a piece of software could function in different ways depending upon the site content, but in the general situation all such applications cache content and deliver it instead of the web server. That's valid for both dynamic and static Internet sites as the cached content may be simple text or database responses and the benefit of employing a web accelerator is not just the faster loading Internet site, but also the reduced overall load on the server. That way, you can use a lower-end hosting solution that'll also cost less while your visitors could still enjoy fast browsing speeds. Several companies provide web accelerators with their hosting deals and they typically offer just one, while we offer 3 different ones that'll enable you to improve the performance of any kind of Internet site tremendously.

Web Accelerators in Shared Hosting

If you buy one of our shared hosting solutions, you will have three widely used web accelerators at your disposal and you'll be able to access them directly using the Hepsia Control Panel which is included with our packages. Varnish is one of the most widely used ones and it could considerably accelerate any site as it caches the web pages a site visitor opens for the first time and provides them each time that guest opens them again. Because Varnish operates considerably faster than any web server, the loading speed of any Internet site using the accelerator will improve substantially. Memcached is employed to cache database and API calls and responses between a site visitor and a hosting server, so it is similar to Varnish, but is used primarily for database-driven websites. Because the site shall connect to its database significantly less, the overall hosting server load will be reduced significantly. The last accelerator, Node.js, is employed for scalable online applications such as chats and booking Internet sites since it processes data in real time the instant it is entered on the website by the users. Dependant upon the package you pick, these accelerators may be available or might be an optional upgrade.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You'll be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the Internet 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 an excellent choice for any script program like WordPress or Joomla. That way, the database web server shall not need to process the same request if many users open a page with the same content. Varnish is comparable, but it is a general-purpose accelerator as it caches any type of content the first time a visitor opens a site. If this page is opened again by the exact same visitor, it'll be delivered by Varnish at a much better speed compared to the hosting server. Using this web accelerator shall decrease the load produced by your websites drastically. Last, but not least, Node.js will allow you to produce scalable web applications like hotel booking Internet sites or chats. Its advantage over very similar platforms is that it doesn't wait for a client to submit a sizable piece of info, but processes whatever the customer is inputting 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 VPS Web Hosting

All virtual private servers that are set up with the Hepsia CP come with Varnish, Memcached and Node.js already included and you'll get several hundred megabytes of dedicated memory for them by default. Varnish, that's also known as an HTTP reverse proxy, caches pages the first time a visitor opens them and delivers them if that guest opens them again, hence the hosting server will not have to perform any action. Because Varnish operates faster than any web server, a website employing this accelerator will work several times quicker. Memcached is a platform that caches database calls and responses and it is employed for WordPress, Joomla and other script-driven apps which store their content inside a database. Node.js is a powerful platform for building scalable web applications. Any info on a site that employs Node.js is processed right away, which makes it a great choice for dining and accommodation booking sites, web-based chats, web browser games, etc.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Memcached, Varnish and Node.js are available with all dedicated servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting CP and in accordance with the package you choose, you shall also have several gbs of dedicated memory for them. Memcached shall minimize the server load by lowering the amount of queries which need to be taken care of as it caches database calls and responses. You'll be able to use it on any website which uses an API or a database - as an example, any site developed with WordPress or Joomla. Varnish can easily improve the performance of any sort of site by caching whole webpages the first time a visitor opens them. The accelerator provides the pages if the very same visitor opens them later on and since it does that considerably faster than the server, the website visitor will be able to surf your site at least several times faster. That's why Varnish is oftentimes categorised as an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is an advanced platform that'll allow you to build booking websites, web chats and other applications where real-time server-user interaction is necessary. It processes the info in little portions as the user fills different boxes and doesn't wait for all boxes to be filled and processed as one sizeable chunk of data, which makes Node.js considerably faster than similar apps.
