A web accelerator is a program that speeds up an Internet site, normally by caching its content. There are various kinds of accelerators, but in the typical case such programs cache static content or database responses and provide them instead of the web server, therefore boosting the performance of a website drastically. The latter is possible because accelerator applications work faster than a server and not simply will a site work better, but the server load shall also decrease, which will allow you to run heavy websites with less system resources. We provide 3 web accelerators with our hosting solutions, which will permit you to accelerate any type of website. In comparison, most hosting firms don't offer any web accelerators or offer only 1, which limits your choice of web apps in case you want to use such software.

Web Accelerators in Website Hosting

We provide 3 of the most well-known web accelerators along with our website hosting solutions and based upon what plan you'll select when you sign up, they may already be available or they could be an optional upgrade. Varnish is the most popular one of them and it can be used for any kind of website. It caches the pages the first time a visitor opens them and delivers them at a faster speed compared to the web server each and every time that a visitor opens them again. Memcached is used to cache API and database calls, so it could increase the speed of dynamic websites including online stores, community forums or social networks. Node.js is employed for scalable web programs and it works in real-time, which makes it perfect for server-side data processing - chats, browser games, booking portals, and so on. You will be able to pick how much memory these accelerators will use and how many instances of each shall run from your Hepsia web hosting CP.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You shall be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the websites hosted within your semi-dedicated hosting account based on the nature of the website content. Memcached, for example, caches database requests, therefore it's a fantastic choice for any script program like WordPress or Joomla. This way, the database server shall not have to process the same request if many users open a webpage with the same content. Varnish is similar, but it is a general-purpose accelerator since it caches any sort of content the first time a website visitor opens a site. If that webpage is opened again by the same guest, it shall be delivered by Varnish at a much higher speed compared to the web server. Using this web accelerator can lessen the load generated by your sites tremendously. Last, but not least, Node.js shall allow you to create scalable web applications such as hotel booking sites or chats. Its advantage over similar platforms is that it does not wait for a client to submit a substantial piece of info, but processes whatever the customer is inputting in real-time. The three web accelerators are available in the Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to pick how many instances of every one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they may employ.

Web Accelerators in VPS Web Hosting

All virtual private servers that are set up with the Hepsia Control Panel come with Varnish, Memcached and Node.js already included and you will receive several hundred MBs of dedicated memory for them by default. Varnish, that is also referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy, caches pages the first time a visitor opens them and delivers them in case that visitor opens them again, hence the web server shall not need to perform any action. Because Varnish works much faster than any hosting server, a website employing this accelerator will function several times quicker. Memcached is a platform that caches database calls and responses and it is used for WordPress, Joomla and other script-driven applications which store their content within a database. Node.js is a powerful platform for creating scalable web apps. Any data on an Internet site that employs Node.js is processed in real time, making it a great choice for dining and accommodation booking websites, web-based chats, Internet browser games, etc.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers Hosting

In the event that you pick Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel for your new dedicated server, you shall have Memcached, Varnish and Node.js available for accelerating your sites. Memcached can easily lessen the load on the web server by lowering the queries your script-driven websites make since it caches database responses. This web accelerator is ideal for dynamic Internet sites created with WordPress, Joomla and comparable scripts. Varnish, which is referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy, caches whole webpages the first time a new guest opens them. It could be employed to speed up any type of site as it provides the cached content much quicker than the web server every time a website visitor opens the same page again. You'll be able to use Node.js for online applications that demand real-time server-client interaction such as online chats or booking Internet sites. Different from other platforms which await the user to enter everything on a form, Node.js processes the info piece by piece as the user fills each and every box, so it functions much faster and more efficiently. All dedicated server plans feature several gigabytes of memory dedicated to those three web accelerators.
