A web accelerator is an application which accelerates a website, normally by caching its content. There are different kinds of accelerators, but in the common case this kind of applications cache static content or database responses and deliver them in lieu of the web server, thus improving the performance of a website noticeably. The latter is achievable because accelerator programs work faster than a hosting server and not only will an Internet site function better, but the server load will also decrease, which will enable you to run heavy sites with less system resources. We provide 3 web accelerators with our hosting solutions, which will enable you to accelerate any kind of website. In comparison, most web hosting providers do not provide any web accelerators or offer only 1, which limits your choice of web apps in case you would like to employ this kind of software.

Web Accelerators in Cloud Hosting

When you host your websites within a cloud hosting account from us, you'll have 3 popular web accelerators to select from if you'd like to boost the sites' efficiency. Memcached is employed for database-driven sites and it caches the calls and requests between a site and its database, so it can easily decrease the load of such websites substantially. Varnish caches entire webpages the first time a site visitor opens them and provides them from there on if the same site visitor opens them again. It does that much more quickly than the server, so it could raise the loading speed of any site as much as 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time apps that operates on the hosting server and not inside the visitor's Internet browser. It's used for holiday accommodation booking, chats and other applications where plenty of data needs to be processed in real time. The availability of these accelerators depends upon the hosting package that you select - they may come by default or as an upgrade. In each case, you'll be able to include more instances or more memory for each of them.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Hepsia CP which is provided with our semi-dedicated hosting packages will enable you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your websites. Memcached is among the most well-known accelerators since it can increase the speed of any API or database-driven Internet site by caching requests and responses, thus the web server won't need to process identical requests over and over again. The platform is ideal for sites developed with programs like Joomla, Mambo or WordPress. Varnish is a highly effective accelerator which caches any sort of content and is also known as an HTTP reverse proxy. It caches web pages that are opened by a website visitor for the first time and delivers them each time that very same visitor opens them again. Varnish can easily accelerate a site several times as it delivers content quicker than any hosting server. Node.js is a platform used for scalable real-time applications like chats, browser games or social networks. It processes information in small pieces as soon as a user types anything, as a result it works much faster than similar platforms in which users submit massive pieces of data that require time to be processed. You'll be able to select the number of instances and the dedicated memory for every one of the 3 accelerators using your CP.

Web Accelerators in VPS Web Hosting

In case you get a virtual private server with the Hepsia CP, you will be able to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your websites. All three accelerators are included inside our solutions by default and offer dedicated memory of several hundred MBs. Node.js is employed to develop scalable programs where real-time interaction is needed - booking sites, online games, chats, etc. It processes the information in small parts as the end user is entering it, therefore it operates much faster than other platforms that wait for the end users to input one large piece of info. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator that functions as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it when the same website visitor opens the same webpage again, which can speed any site several times due to the fact that Varnish works faster than any server. Memcached is used for caching API and database responses, therefore it's ideal for script-driven Internet sites such as WordPress and Joomla. This web accelerator will be able to decrease the load on your web server as it'll reduced the number of database queries that your sites make.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Memcached, Varnish and Node.js are provided with all dedicated servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting CP and depending on the plan that you pick, you'll also have several gigabytes of dedicated memory for them. Memcached can lessen the server load by lowering the amount of queries which have to be dealt with because it caches database calls and responses. You'll be able to use it on every Internet site that uses an API or a database - as an example, any site built with WordPress or Joomla. Varnish can improve the performance of any sort of Internet site by caching whole webpages the first time a visitor opens them. The accelerator delivers the webpages if the very same visitor opens them later on and since it does that considerably quicker than the hosting server, the visitor will be able to surf your website at least a few times faster. That's why Varnish is sometimes categorised as an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is a sophisticated platform which will allow you to create booking websites, web chats and other applications in which real-time server-user interaction is necessary. It processes the information in small portions as the user fills different boxes and doesn't wait for all boxes to be filled and processed as one sizeable piece of data, which makes Node.js considerably faster than similar apps.
