A web accelerator is a server-side app that speeds up a site. Such a piece of software could operate in different ways depending on the website content, but in the general situation all such apps cache content and deliver it instead of the web server. That is valid for both static and dynamic websites as the cached content may be simple text or database responses and the reward of employing a web accelerator is not simply the faster loading website, but also the reduced overall load on the hosting server. That way, you may use a lower-end hosting plan that will also cost less while your site visitors will be able to still enjoy fast browsing speeds. Few firms provide web accelerators with their hosting plans and they usually offer just one, while we offer 3 different ones that will permit you to enhance the performance of any kind of Internet site significantly.

Web Accelerators in Hosting

In case you host your sites within a hosting account from our company, you shall have 3 popular web accelerators to select from if you'd like to enhance the sites' functionality. Memcached is employed for database-driven sites and it caches the calls and requests between a website and its database, so it can easily minimize the load of such websites tremendously. Varnish caches whole webpages the first time a visitor opens them and provides them from there on if the same visitor opens them again. It does that considerably faster than the web server, so it can boost the loading speed of any website as much as 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time apps which works on the hosting server and not in the visitor's world-wide web browser. It's employed for accommodation booking, chats and other programs where plenty of data needs to be processed in real time. The availability of those accelerators depends on the hosting plan which you choose - they might come by default or as an upgrade. In both cases, you'll be able to add more instances or more memory for each of them.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You'll be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the websites hosted inside your semi-dedicated hosting account based on the nature of the site content. Memcached, for instance, caches database requests, therefore it is a fantastic choice for any script program like WordPress or Joomla. This way, the database hosting server shall not have to process the same request if multiple users open a page with the same content. Varnish is comparable, but it's a general-purpose accelerator since it caches any kind of content the first time a guest opens a page. If that page is opened again by the exact same website visitor, it will be provided by Varnish at a greater speed compared to the hosting server. Employing this web accelerator will lessen the load created by your websites tremendously. Last, but not least, Node.js shall enable you to produce scalable web programs like hotel booking websites or chats. Its advantage over similar platforms is that it doesn't wait for a user to submit a substantial piece of info, but processes whatever the client is inputting in real-time. The 3 web accelerators are available in the Hepsia Control Panel and you shall be able to choose how many instances of each one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they can use.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Hosting

In the event that you order a dedicated server from us and you select Hepsia as the hosting CP, you shall be able to use Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your websites. All plans include several gigabytes of memory dedicated to these accelerators and the actual amount depends on the package that you select. Node.js is used for scalable online applications like browser games or hotel booking and it processes the data immediately as the user enters it, which makes it faster than very similar platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you employ it for a script-driven Internet site, not simply will the website speed up, but also the load on the web server will reduce as there will be considerably less database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it's not limited to databases. Instead, it caches whole pages once a guest opens them and provides them instead of the hosting server every time the same visitor opens them later. Due to the fact that Varnish processes web requests much faster than any server, the performance of a site using this accelerator can increase around 300%.
