A web accelerator is a program which speeds up an Internet site, normally by caching its content. There are various types of accelerators, but in the general case this sort of applications cache static content or database responses and deliver them instead of the hosting server, hence increasing the performance of a site greatly. The latter is achievable because accelerator apps work faster than a hosting server and not simply will an Internet site work better, but the server load shall also decline, which will permit you to run heavy Internet sites with less system resources. We provide three web accelerators with our hosting packages, which will permit you to speed up any sort of website. In comparison, most web hosting providers do not provide any web accelerators or provide only 1, which limits your choice of web applications if you want to employ this kind of software.

Web Accelerators in Shared Website Hosting

When you purchase one of our shared website hosting plans, you shall have 3 popular web accelerators at your disposal and you shall be able to access them directly via the Hepsia CP that comes with our plans. Varnish is one of the most well-known ones and it can significantly speed up any site as it caches the web pages that a visitor opens for the first time and delivers them each and every time that visitor opens them again. Because Varnish works considerably faster than any hosting server, the loading speed of any Internet site using the accelerator will improve significantly. Memcached is employed to cache database and API calls and responses between an Internet site visitor and a server, so it's similar to Varnish, but is used predominantly for database-driven sites. Because the Internet site will connect to its database a lot less, the overall web server load shall be decreased considerably. The 3rd accelerator, Node.js, is employed for scalable online programs including chats and booking sites as it processes information in real time as soon as it is entered on the webpage by the users. Based on the plan you select, these accelerators could be available or may be an optional upgrade.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the sites hosted inside your semi-dedicated server account based on the nature of the website content. Memcached, in particular, caches database requests, therefore it's a great choice for any script application like WordPress or Joomla. That way, the database server won't have to process the very same request if multiple users open a site with the same content. Varnish is comparable, but it's a general-purpose accelerator as it caches any kind of content the first time a website visitor opens a page. If that webpage is opened again by the same guest, it'll be provided by Varnish at a much better speed compared to the server. Using this web accelerator can decrease the load created by your sites considerably. Last, but not least, Node.js will enable you to create scalable web apps like hotel booking Internet sites or chats. Its advantage over similar platforms is that it does not wait for a customer to submit a substantial piece of data, but processes whatever the user is typing in real-time. The 3 web accelerators are available within the Hepsia CP and you shall be able to pick how many instances of every one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they can employ.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

If you buy a dedicated server from our company and you pick Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel, you will be able to employ Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your Internet sites. All solutions feature several gigabytes of memory dedicated to these accelerators and the specific amount depends on the plan that you select. Node.js is employed for scalable online apps including browser games or hotel booking and it processes the info in real time as the user enters it, which makes it faster than similar platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you use it for a script-driven site, not simply will the Internet site work faster, but also the load on the hosting server will decline since there shall be a lesser amount of database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it is not limited to databases. Rather, it caches whole websites once a visitor opens them and delivers them instead of the web server every time the same visitor opens them later on. Because Varnish processes web requests faster than any server, the overall performance of a website using this accelerator can increase around 300%.
