A web accelerator is a server-side application that speeds up an Internet site. Such a piece of software may operate in different ways depending on the site content, but in the typical situation all such apps cache content and deliver it instead of the web server. That's valid for both dynamic and static Internet sites as the cached content could be simple text or database responses and the advantage of employing a web accelerator isn't simply the faster loading Internet site, but also the smaller overall load on the server. This way, you may use a lower-end hosting package that'll also cost less while your website visitors will be able to still enjoy superior browsing speeds. Few firms provide web accelerators with their hosting packages and they typically offer only 1, while we offer three different ones which will permit you to enhance the performance of any type of site significantly.

Web Accelerators in Shared Website Hosting

Our shared website hosting solutions include 3 web accelerators that you could employ depending on the Internet sites which you'd like to run. Memcached is employed to cache database or API calls and responses, which could considerably boost the functionality of dynamic sites. Varnish is a popular HTTP accelerator which caches web pages and delivers them to the visitors much faster than the server after the first time they open them. Node.js is an event-driven platform employed for scalable real-time applications for example booking websites. Based on the hosting plan you pick, these 3 apps might already be included or might be optional upgrades. In either case, you shall be able to choose how many instances of each of them shall be at your disposal and how much memory they should use. These accelerators are provided only by several hosting service providers, including ours, and they can easily raise the speed of your web programs substantially.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

The Hepsia CP that is provided with our semi-dedicated server solutions will allow you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your websites. Memcached is one of the most widely used accelerators since it can easily increase the speed of any API or database-driven Internet site by caching requests and responses, thus the web server shall not need to process identical requests again and again. The platform is ideal for websites built with programs like Joomla, Mambo or WordPress. Varnish is a highly effective accelerator that caches any kind of content and is also frequently called an HTTP reverse proxy. It caches pages which are opened by a site visitor for the first time and delivers them every time that very same site visitor opens them again. Varnish can certainly accelerate a website several times since it delivers content quicker than any server. Node.js is a platform employed for scalable real-time apps like chats, browser games or social networks. It processes info in small pieces the moment a user types something, as a result it works considerably faster than similar platforms where users submit large pieces of data that require time to be processed. You could pick the number of instances and the dedicated memory for each of the 3 accelerators via your Control Panel.

Web Accelerators in VPS Servers

We provide Memcached, Node.js and Varnish with all VPS servers which are acquired with the Hepsia Control Panel. Your server will also come with several hundred MBs of dedicated memory for these accelerators and the particular amount depends on the plan that you select. Memcached is used for script-driven Internet sites as it caches database responses, thus reducing the amount of queries that a script sends to its database. It could be used for any script like WordPress or Joomla. Node.js is an efficient platform for building web apps such as booking sites and chats. The real-time interaction between end users and a web server is performed by processing smaller bits of information as soon any user enters anything on the webpage. In comparison, other platforms await customers to input a considerable amount of info before they process it, thus they work more slowly. Varnish is a multi-purpose accelerator which caches entire pages and provides them instead of the web server at a considerably faster rate. It is also known as an HTTP reverse proxy and it can speed up any type of site.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

If you obtain a dedicated server from us and you select Hepsia as the hosting CP, you'll be able to use Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your websites. All packages include several gigabytes of memory dedicated to those accelerators and the specific amount depends on the plan that you select. Node.js is used for scalable online applications such as browser games or hotel booking and it processes the information immediately as the user enters it, which makes it considerably quicker than similar platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you use it for a script-driven Internet site, not simply will the website speed up, but also the load on the web server will reduce as there shall be a lesser amount of database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it's not limited to databases. Instead, it caches whole websites once a visitor opens them and provides them instead of the web server each and every time the same visitor opens them later. Because Varnish processes web requests much quicker than any server, the efficiency of a website using this accelerator can increase around 300%.
