A web accelerator is a server-side application which speeds up a site. Such a piece of software can function in different ways depending on the site content, but in the general case all such applications cache content and deliver it instead of the web server. That is valid for both dynamic and static Internet sites as the cached content can be simple text or database responses and the reward of using a web accelerator is not just the faster loading website, but also the decreased overall load on the hosting server. That way, you'll be able to employ a lower-end hosting plan that will also cost less while your site visitors could still enjoy fast browsing speeds. Several firms offer web accelerators with their hosting packages and they often offer just one, while we offer three different ones that will permit you to boost the performance of any kind of site considerably.

Web Accelerators in Web Hosting

Our web hosting solutions come with 3 web accelerators which you could employ depending on the sites that you would like to run. Memcached is used to cache database or API calls and responses, which could tremendously boost the functionality of dynamic sites. Varnish is a popular HTTP accelerator which caches webpages and provides them to the website visitors considerably faster than the server after the first time they open them. Node.js is an event-driven platform employed for scalable real-time applications such as booking sites. With respect to the web hosting package you choose, these 3 applications may already be included or could be optional upgrades. Regardless, you shall be able to choose how many instances of every one of them shall be at your disposal and how much memory they should use. These accelerators are offered only by several web hosting firms, including ours, and they can easily increase the speed of your web applications substantially.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

The Hepsia Control Panel which comes with our semi-dedicated server solutions shall permit you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your Internet sites. Memcached is one of the most well known accelerators since it can speed up any API or database-driven site by caching requests and responses, as a result the web server shall not have to process identical requests over and over again. The platform is ideal for sites created with applications like Joomla, Mambo or WordPress. Varnish is a powerful accelerator which caches any sort of content and is also frequently called an HTTP reverse proxy. It caches web pages which are opened by a visitor for the first time and provides them each time that same guest opens them again. Varnish can certainly speed up a website several times because it delivers content faster than any server. Node.js is a platform employed for scalable real-time programs like chats, browser games or social networks. It processes data in smaller bits as soon as a user types something, as a result it functions much more quickly than similar platforms where users submit sizeable portions of info which require time to be processed. You'll be able to select the number of instances and the dedicated memory for each of the 3 accelerators via your Control Panel.

Web Accelerators in VPS Servers

In case you get a VPS server with the Hepsia CP, you will be able to employ Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your sites. All three accelerators are integrated in our packages by default and feature dedicated memory of several hundred megabytes. Node.js is used to create scalable apps where real-time interaction is needed - booking websites, online flash games, chats, etc. It processes the info in small portions as the end user is entering it, thus it operates more quickly than other platforms which wait for the end users to enter one massive part of info. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator that operates as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it when the same guest opens the same website again, which can easily speed any Internet site several times since Varnish works faster than any server. Memcached is employed for caching API and database responses, therefore it is suitable for script-driven Internet sites such as WordPress and Joomla. This web accelerator can lessen the load on your hosting server since it will reduced the number of database queries that your sites make.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

Memcached, Varnish and Node.js come with all dedicated servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting CP and depending on the plan that you choose, you will also have several gigabytes of dedicated memory for them. Memcached will lessen the server load by lowering the amount of queries which need to be handled because it caches database calls and responses. You will be able to use it on every Internet site that uses an API or a database - for instance, any website designed with WordPress or Joomla. Varnish can easily enhance the performance of any type of Internet site by caching whole webpages the first time a guest opens them. The accelerator delivers the pages if the exact same visitor opens them later and since it does that way quicker than the server, the website visitor will be able to browse your Internet site at least a few times faster. That is why Varnish is often called an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is an innovative platform that'll permit you to develop booking websites, web chats and other apps in which real-time server-user interaction is required. It processes the data in tiny parts as the client fills different boxes and doesn't wait for all boxes to be filled and processed as one large piece of data, which makes Node.js much faster than similar apps.
