A web accelerator is a server-side application that speeds up a site. Such a piece of software may operate in different ways based on the site content, but in the general situation all such apps cache content and deliver it instead of the server. This is valid for both static and dynamic Internet sites because the cached content could be simple text or database responses and the reward of employing a web accelerator is not simply the faster loading site, but also the smaller overall load on the web server. This way, you may use a lower-end hosting plan which will also cost less while your website visitors could still enjoy fast browsing speeds. Several businesses provide web accelerators with their hosting packages and they frequently offer just 1, while we offer three different ones that will enable you to improve the performance of any kind of site considerably.

Web Accelerators in Shared Web Hosting

In case you host your Internet sites inside a shared web hosting account from us, you will have three popular web accelerators to choose from if you would like to enhance the sites' efficiency. Memcached is employed for database-driven Internet sites and it caches the calls and requests between an Internet site and its database, so it can easily reduce the load of such Internet sites significantly. Varnish caches entire web pages the first time a site visitor opens them and provides them from there on if the same guest opens them again. It does that considerably faster than the web server, so it can easily raise the loading speed of any Internet site as much as 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time apps that operates on the server and not inside the visitor's world-wide web browser. It's employed for accommodation booking, chats and other programs where lots of data should be processed in real time. The availability of these accelerators depends upon the hosting solution that you choose - they may come by default or as an upgrade. In both cases, you will be able to add more instances or more memory for every one of them.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you opt for one of our semi-dedicated server plans, you'll be able to take advantage of Varnish, Memcached and Node.js - 3 powerful web accelerators. Varnish is a multi-purpose app that caches pages the first time a site visitor opens them and provides them instead of the server if the website visitor opens them again approximately 300% faster. Memcached caches API and database calls and responses so that the hosting server does not have to process every request, that makes it ideal for database-driven websites, for instance ones developed with Joomla or WordPress. Node.js is employed to produce web applications which function in real-time like chats or accommodation booking portals and it processes each bit of info as soon as the user types it instead of waiting for massive portions of data to be accumulated. The Hepsia Control Panel that is included with our semi-dedicated packages will allow you to choose how many instances of each and every accelerator shall work at a time and what amount of memory they will use.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

In the event that you select Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel for your new dedicated server, you'll have Memcached, Varnish and Node.js available for accelerating your sites. Memcached can minimize the load on the server by lowering the queries your script-driven Internet sites make since it caches database responses. This web accelerator is good for dynamic Internet sites designed with WordPress, Joomla and similar scripts. Varnish, which is often called an HTTP reverse proxy, caches whole websites the first time a new visitor opens them. It could be used to speed up any type of site because it delivers the cached content way quicker than the web server any time a guest opens the same webpage again. You could employ Node.js for online apps that require real-time server-client interaction like online chats or booking sites. In contrast to other platforms that wait for the user to fill everything on a form, Node.js processes the data little by little as the user fills each box, so it works considerably faster and more effectively. All dedicated server plans come with several gigabytes of memory dedicated to those 3 web accelerators.
