A web accelerator is a software which speeds up a website, typically by caching its content. There are many types of accelerators, but in the common case this kind of apps cache static content or database responses and provide them in place of the server, as a consequence enhancing the performance of a website greatly. The latter is achievable because accelerator programs work faster than a server and not only will a website function better, but the server load will also lessen, which will enable you to run heavy websites with less resources. We offer 3 web accelerators with our hosting packages, which will allow you to accelerate any sort of Internet site. In comparison, most web hosting companies don't offer any web accelerators or offer only 1, which limits your choice of web applications in case you would like to use this type of software.

Web Accelerators in Shared Website Hosting

Our shared website hosting packages come with three web accelerators that you will be able to use depending on the Internet sites that you would like to run. Memcached is used to cache database or API calls and responses, which could drastically improve the efficiency of dynamic websites. Varnish is a popular HTTP accelerator which caches web pages and provides them to the site visitors way quicker than the server after the first time they open them. Node.js is an event-driven platform employed for scalable real-time programs such as booking websites. Depending upon the Internet hosting plan you select, these 3 apps could already be included or might be optional upgrades. In any case, you will be able to select how many instances of every one of them shall be at your disposal and how much memory they should employ. These accelerators are offered only by a few hosting service providers, including ours, and they can increase the speed of your web programs considerably.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the sites hosted within your semi-dedicated server account depending on the nature of the website content. Memcached, for instance, caches database requests, so it is an excellent choice for any script app like WordPress or Joomla. This way, the database web server shall not need to process the exact same request if many users open a site with the same content. Varnish is very similar, but it is a general-purpose accelerator since it caches any kind of content the first time a website visitor opens an Internet site. In case that web page is opened again by the same visitor, it shall be provided by Varnish at a greater speed compared to the web server. Using this web accelerator can minimize the load created by your Internet sites considerably. Last, but not least, Node.js shall allow you to produce scalable web applications such as hotel booking sites or chats. Its advantage over similar platforms is that it doesn't wait for a client to submit a large piece of info, but processes whatever the customer is inputting in real-time. The 3 web accelerators are available in the Hepsia CP and you'll be able to pick how many instances of every one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they'll employ.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

Memcached, Varnish and Node.js come with all dedicated servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and depending on the package that you opt for, you will also have several gigabytes of dedicated memory for them. Memcached can decrease the server load by lowering the amount of queries which need to be addressed since it caches database calls and responses. You'll be able to use it on any website that uses an API or a database - for instance, any website created with WordPress or Joomla. Varnish can easily improve the performance of any sort of Internet site by caching whole pages the first time a guest opens them. The accelerator provides the pages if the very same visitor opens them later and since it does that way quicker than the server, the website visitor will be able to look through your site at least a couple of times faster. For this reason Varnish is often referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is a sophisticated platform which will allow you to create booking sites, web chats and other apps in which real-time server-user interaction is required. It processes the information in tiny portions as the client fills different boxes and doesn't wait for all boxes to be filled and processed as one sizeable chunk of data, which makes Node.js much faster than similar apps.
