A web accelerator is a server-side program which quickens a website. Such a piece of software can function in different ways depending upon the website content, but in the typical case all such programs cache content and deliver it instead of the web server. That's valid for both dynamic and static websites as the cached content may be simple text or database responses and the benefit of using a web accelerator is not just the faster loading site, but also the reduced overall load on the hosting server. That way, you may use a lower-end hosting package that will also cost less while your visitors can still enjoy fast browsing speeds. Several companies offer web accelerators with their hosting deals and they often offer just 1, while we offer 3 different ones which will permit you to boost the performance of any kind of Internet site significantly.

Web Accelerators in Shared Hosting

In case you get one of our shared hosting solutions, you shall have three popular web accelerators at your disposal and you'll be able to access them directly through the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with our solutions. Varnish is one of the most popular ones and it can greatly increase the speed of any website because it caches the web pages a site visitor opens for the first time and provides them each and every time that visitor opens them again. Given that Varnish works considerably faster than any hosting server, the loading speed of any website using the accelerator shall increase substantially. Memcached is employed to cache database and API calls and responses between a site visitor and a server, so it is much like Varnish, but is used predominantly for database-driven sites. Since the website will connect to its database much less, the overall server load will be minimized notably. The 3rd accelerator, Node.js, is used for scalable online apps including chats and booking sites since it processes data in real time the moment it is entered on the site by the users. Dependant upon the plan you select, these accelerators could be available or may be an optional upgrade.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you pick one of our semi-dedicated server packages, you'll be able to employ Varnish, Memcached and Node.js - three effective web accelerators. Varnish is a multi-purpose program which caches web pages the first time a site visitor opens them and provides them instead of the web server if the website visitor opens them again approximately 300% quicker. Memcached caches API and database calls and responses to ensure the hosting server doesn't need to process each and every request, which makes it perfect for database-driven websites, for example ones built with Joomla or WordPress. Node.js is employed to create web applications that work in real-time like chats or accommodation booking websites and it processes every bit of data as soon as the user types it as opposed to waiting for big pieces of information to be accumulated. The Hepsia Control Panel which comes with our semi-dedicated packages shall allow you to choose how many instances of every accelerator will work at a time and what amount of memory they'll use.

Web Accelerators in VPS Servers

In case you get a VPS server with the Hepsia CP, you'll be able to employ Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your sites. All 3 accelerators are integrated inside our plans by default and come with dedicated memory of a few hundred megabytes. Node.js is employed to build scalable programs where real-time interaction is required - booking websites, online flash games, chats, etc. It processes the data in small parts as the user is entering it, thus it operates faster than other platforms which wait for the end users to submit one big bit of info. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator that functions as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it if the same website visitor opens the same webpage again, which can easily speed any website several times as Varnish functions faster than any hosting server. Memcached is employed for caching API and database responses, so it's ideal for script-driven websites like WordPress and Joomla. This web accelerator can decrease the load on your hosting server as it will lower the amount of database queries your Internet sites make.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

Memcached, Varnish and Node.js are available with all dedicated servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and based on the package you select, you'll also have several gigabytes of dedicated memory for them. Memcached will minimize the web server load by lowering the amount of queries that have to be addressed as it caches database calls and responses. You shall be able to use it on any 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 website by caching whole pages the first time a visitor opens them. The accelerator delivers the pages if the very same visitor opens them afterwards and considering the fact that it does that faster than the web server, the website visitor shall be able to surf your website at least a couple of times faster. This is why Varnish is often categorised as an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is an innovative platform that will permit you to create booking sites, web chats and other programs where real-time server-user interaction is required. It processes the data in little bits as the client fills different boxes and doesn't wait for all boxes to be filled and processed as one big piece of info, which makes Node.js much faster than similar programs.
