A web accelerator is a server-side program which accelerates a website. Such a piece of software may operate in different ways based on the website content, but in the general case all such applications cache content and deliver it instead of the server. That is valid for both dynamic and static sites as the cached content could be simple text or database responses and the advantage of using a web accelerator isn't only the faster loading site, but also the lessened overall load on the server. This way, you could employ a lower-end hosting package that will also cost less while your site visitors will be able to still enjoy high browsing speeds. Handful of businesses offer web accelerators with their hosting plans and they usually offer only 1, while we offer 3 different ones that will allow you to improve the performance of any type of website significantly.

Web Accelerators in Cloud Hosting

When you acquire one of our cloud hosting solutions, you shall have 3 widely used web accelerators at your disposal and you'll be able to access them directly using the Hepsia CP that is included with our packages. Varnish is one of the most widely used ones and it could tremendously accelerate any site as it caches the pages that a site visitor opens for the first time and delivers them every time that website visitor opens them again. Given that Varnish functions much faster than any server, the loading speed of any site using the accelerator shall increase substantially. Memcached is employed to cache database and API calls and responses between a website visitor and a server, so it is much like Varnish, but is employed predominantly for database-driven sites. Since the website will connect to its database much less, the overall server load will be reduced notably. The last accelerator, Node.js, is employed for scalable online programs including chats and booking websites since it processes information in real time the instant it is entered on the webpage by the users. Dependant upon the package you pick, these accelerators could be available or could be an optional upgrade.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

You'll be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the sites hosted within your semi-dedicated server account depending on the nature of the site content. Memcached, in particular, caches database requests, therefore it is an excellent option for any script program such as WordPress or Joomla. This way, the database web server won't need to process the same request if many users open a webpage with the same content. Varnish is very similar, but it's a general-purpose accelerator because it caches any kind of content the first time a guest opens a page. If this web page is opened again by the exact same guest, it'll be provided by Varnish at a much better speed compared to the web server. Using this web accelerator shall minimize the load produced by your websites tremendously. Last, but not least, Node.js shall allow you to build scalable web programs such as hotel booking Internet sites or chats. Its advantage over similar platforms is that it does not wait for a client to submit a large piece of information, but processes whatever the client is entering in real-time. The 3 web accelerators are available inside the Hepsia CP 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 Servers

All VPS servers that are integrated with the Hepsia CP come with Varnish, Memcached and Node.js already included and you shall have several hundred MBs of dedicated memory for them by default. Varnish, that's also referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy, caches pages the first time a guest opens them and provides them in case that visitor opens them again, so the server shall not need to perform any action. Because Varnish functions much faster than any hosting server, an Internet site using this accelerator shall work several times swifter. Memcached is a platform which caches database calls and responses and it is employed for WordPress, Joomla and other script-driven apps that store their content within a database. Node.js is a highly effective platform for building scalable web apps. Any info on a website that uses Node.js is processed right away, which makes it an excellent choice for dining and accommodation booking Internet sites, web-based chats, Internet browser games, etcetera.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

In case you choose Hepsia as the hosting CP for your new dedicated server, you'll have Memcached, Varnish and Node.js at your disposal for increasing the speed of your websites. Memcached can reduce the load on the hosting server by lowering the queries your script-driven websites make as it caches database responses. This web accelerator is perfect for dynamic sites created with WordPress, Joomla and very similar scripts. Varnish, which is referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy, caches whole sites the first time a new website visitor opens them. It may be employed to speed up any kind of website because it provides the cached content considerably faster than the hosting server each time a visitor opens the same site again. You can employ Node.js for online applications which require real-time server-client interaction like online chats or booking sites. Unlike other platforms that wait for the user to input everything on a form, Node.js processes the data gradually as the user fills each box, so it operates much faster and more effectively. All dedicated server packages include several gigabytes of memory dedicated to these 3 web accelerators.
