A web accelerator is a server-side application that speeds up an Internet site. Such a piece of software could function in different ways depending on the website content, but in the typical situation all such applications cache content and deliver it instead of the web server. That's valid for both dynamic and static sites since the cached content can be simple text or database responses and the advantage of employing a web accelerator is not only the faster loading site, but also the decreased overall load on the server. That way, you may use a lower-end hosting plan that'll also cost less while your visitors could still enjoy fast browsing speeds. Several businesses offer web accelerators with their hosting plans and they typically offer just one, while we offer 3 different ones which will enable you to enhance the performance of any type of website noticeably.

Web Accelerators in Cloud Hosting

Our cloud hosting solutions include three web accelerators which you could employ depending on the sites which you'd like to run. Memcached is used to cache database or API calls and responses, which could drastically improve the functionality of dynamic sites. Varnish is a popular HTTP accelerator that caches webpages and provides them to the website visitors considerably faster than the hosting server after the first time they open them. Node.js is an event-driven platform used for scalable real-time applications for example booking websites. With respect to the hosting solution you pick, these 3 apps might already be included or might be optional upgrades. Regardless, you will be able to choose how many instances of every one of them shall be at your disposal and what amount of memory they ought to employ. These accelerators are provided only by a handful of Internet hosting companies, including ours, and they can easily boost the speed of your web applications substantially.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

You'll be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the websites hosted within your semi-dedicated server account in accordance with the nature of the site content. Memcached, for example, caches database requests, so it is a fantastic choice for any script program like WordPress or Joomla. This way, the database hosting server will not have to process exactly the same request if many users open a website 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 guest opens a page. In case this web page is opened again by the very same visitor, it shall be delivered by Varnish at a much higher speed compared to the hosting server. Employing this web accelerator will reduce the load produced by your sites considerably. Last, but not least, Node.js shall allow you to create scalable web programs like hotel booking websites or chats. Its advantage over comparable platforms is that it does not wait for a customer to submit a large piece of data, but processes whatever the user is typing in real-time. The three web accelerators are available within the Hepsia CP and you will be able to choose how many instances of each and every one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they can use.

Web Accelerators in VPS Servers

All VPS servers which are set up with the Hepsia Control Panel come with Varnish, Memcached and Node.js already included and you will have several hundred MBs of dedicated memory for them by default. Varnish, which is also referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy, caches webpages the first time a website visitor opens them and provides them in case that visitor opens them again, therefore the server shall not need to perform any action. Due to the fact that Varnish works faster than any server, a site using this accelerator will operate several times swifter. Memcached is a platform that caches database calls and responses and it's used for WordPress, Joomla and other script-driven applications that store their content in a database. Node.js is a powerful platform for creating scalable web programs. Any information on a site which uses Node.js is processed in real time, which makes it an excellent choice for dining and accommodation booking Internet sites, web-based chats, browser games, etc.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

Memcached, Node.js and Varnish are offered by default with all our dedicated servers which are ordered with Hepsia as the web hosting Control Panel. These three web accelerators offer several gbs of dedicated memory and you can use them to speed up any kind of site. Memcached can greatly lessen the load on the server if you have script-driven websites since it caches database responses, therefore it minimizes the number of database queries which the server has to tackle. Node.js will permit you to create scalable apps with real-time user-server interaction including chats or dining booking sites. Its advantage over very similar platforms is that it processes data as soon as the end user enters it, so all the information is taken care of quicker and in small pieces. Varnish caches entire webpages the first time a site visitor opens them and provides them every time the same visitor opens them again, that makes it a universal accelerator for any type of websites. Since it functions quicker than any server, it can easily speed up a site at least several times and due to this fact, Varnish is one of the most popular web accelerators out there.
