A web accelerator is an application which speeds up an Internet site, normally by caching its content. There are different types of accelerators, but in the common case this sort of apps cache static content or database responses and provide them instead of the hosting server, as a consequence increasing the performance of a website drastically. The latter is possible because accelerator applications work faster than a server and not simply will an Internet site operate better, but the server load will also decrease, which will enable you to run heavy sites with less resources. We offer three web accelerators with our hosting plans, which will allow you to speed up any sort of site. In comparison, most web hosting providers do not provide any web accelerators or offer just one, which limits your choice of web applications in case you want to use such software.

Web Accelerators in Shared Hosting

If you host your Internet sites within a shared hosting account from our company, you will have three popular web accelerators to select from if you would like to improve the sites' functionality. Memcached is used for database-driven sites and it caches the calls and requests between an Internet site and its database, so it can reduce the load of such websites substantially. Varnish caches whole webpages the first time a visitor opens them and provides them from there on if the same website visitor opens them again. It does that faster than the hosting server, so it could raise the loading speed of any website nearly 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time programs which operates on the server and not within the visitor's browser. It's used for accommodation booking, chats and other applications where a lot of data needs to be processed in real time. The availability of the accelerators depends upon the hosting plan that you select - they may come by default or as an upgrade. In both cases, you'll be able to add more instances or more memory for each one of them.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You shall be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the sites hosted in your semi-dedicated hosting account in accordance with the nature of the site content. Memcached, for instance, caches database requests, therefore it's an excellent choice for any script program such as WordPress or Joomla. This way, the database web server shall not need to process the exact same request if multiple users open a page with the same content. Varnish is similar, but it is a general-purpose accelerator since it caches any kind of content the first time a visitor opens a site. If this web page is opened again by the exact same visitor, it will be provided by Varnish at a greater speed compared to the web server. Using this web accelerator shall minimize the load generated by your Internet sites drastically. Last, but not least, Node.js shall enable you to build scalable web programs like hotel booking sites or chats. Its advantage over very similar platforms is that it doesn't wait for a client to submit a big piece of info, but processes whatever the client is entering in real-time. The 3 web accelerators are available within the Hepsia CP and you will be able to choose how many instances of every one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they'll employ.

Web Accelerators in VPS Web Hosting

In case you choose your virtual private server to be set up with the Hepsia CP, you shall be able to use Varnish, Memcached and Node.js - three of the most commonly used web accelerators. Varnish caches websites the first time they're visited and delivers them each and every time the same individual visits them again, which will speed up any sort of Internet site several times. Memcached is used for dynamic script applications like Joomla and WordPress because it caches database requests and responses, therefore the database hosting server shall not need to process the very same webpage each time visitors open it if the same content should be shown. Node.js is a platform for creating real-time programs like online games and chats. It operates considerably faster than similar platforms since it processes the info in small parts all the time and doesn't wait for users to input a large piece of data which will require more time to be processed. The three web accelerators are available with all Hepsia-based VPS packages and come with several hundred MBs of dedicated memory.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Memcached, Node.js and Varnish are provided by default with all of our dedicated servers that are ordered with Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel. These 3 web accelerators offer several gigabytes of dedicated memory and you can use them to speed up any type of site. Memcached can drastically reduce the load on the hosting server if you have script-driven Internet sites because it caches database responses, thus it lessens the number of database queries that the web server has to deal with. Node.js shall allow you to create scalable applications with real-time user-server interaction like chats or dining booking websites. Its advantage over very similar platforms is that it processes data the moment the user enters it, so all the data is managed faster and in small portions. Varnish caches whole Internet pages the first time a site visitor opens them and delivers them each and every time the same visitor opens them again, that makes it a universal accelerator for any kind of sites. Since it operates faster than any server, it could speed up an Internet site at least several times and because of this, Varnish is one of the most popular web accelerators on the market.
