A web accelerator is a server-side program that speeds up a site. Such a piece of software may work in different ways depending on the site content, but in the general case all such applications cache content and deliver it instead of the hosting server. That's valid for both static and dynamic sites because the cached content can be simple text or database responses and the benefit of using a web accelerator isn't only the faster loading website, but also the smaller overall load on the machine. This way, you'll be able to employ a lower-end hosting package that'll also cost less while your website visitors could still enjoy high browsing speeds. Several service providers supply web accelerators with their hosting packages and they often offer just 1, while we offer 3 different ones which will enable you to boost the performance of any type of website considerably.

Web Accelerators in Cloud Web Hosting

When you host your Internet sites in a cloud web hosting account from us, you'll have three popular web accelerators to pick from if you'd like to boost the sites' performance. Memcached is used for database-driven sites and it caches the calls and requests between a website and its database, so it can easily decrease the load of such websites substantially. Varnish caches whole webpages the first time a website visitor opens them and provides them from there on if the same site visitor opens them again. It does that considerably faster than the web server, so it can easily boost the loading speed of any website as much as 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time applications which works on the web server and not inside the visitor's Internet browser. It is employed for accommodation booking, chats and other apps where a lot of data has to be processed in real time. The availability of the accelerators depends upon the hosting solution which you pick - they might come by default or as an upgrade. In both cases, you shall be able to include more instances or more memory for every one of them.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

The Hepsia Control Panel that is included with our semi-dedicated server packages shall allow you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your Internet sites. Memcached is among the most well-known accelerators since it can increase the speed of any API or database-driven website by caching requests and responses, therefore the web server shall not have to process identical requests again and again. The platform is suitable for Internet sites designed with applications such as Joomla, Mambo or WordPress. Varnish is a highly effective accelerator which caches any type of content and is also known as an HTTP reverse proxy. It caches web pages that are opened by a website visitor for the first time and provides them each time that same visitor opens them again. Varnish can accelerate a site several times as it delivers content quicker than any web server. Node.js is a platform used for scalable real-time applications such as chats, Internet browser games or social networks. It processes info in smaller pieces as soon as a user enters something, so it operates much more quickly than similar platforms in which users submit large chunks of info which need time to be processed. You'll be able to select the number of instances and the dedicated memory for each and every one of the three accelerators through your CP.

Web Accelerators in VPS Servers

In case you get a VPS server with the Hepsia CP, you will be able to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your websites. All three accelerators are included in our plans by default and feature dedicated memory of a few hundred megabytes. Node.js is employed to develop scalable applications where real-time interaction is required - booking Internet sites, online games, chats, and so on. It processes the data in small parts as the end user is entering it, as a result it works much faster than other platforms that wait for the users to enter one massive part of data. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator which operates as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it when the same visitor opens the same webpage again, which can easily speed any site several times since Varnish works a lot quicker than any server. Memcached is employed for caching API and database responses, so it is ideal for script-driven Internet sites like WordPress and Joomla. This web accelerator will be able to minimize the load on your server because it shall lower the number of database queries your sites make.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

In the event that you choose Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel for your new dedicated server, you'll have Memcached, Varnish and Node.js at your disposal for speeding up your websites. Memcached will be able to decrease the load on the web server by lowering the queries your script-driven sites make since it caches database responses. This web accelerator is good for dynamic websites created with WordPress, Joomla and similar scripts. Varnish, which is known as an HTTP reverse proxy, caches entire webpages the first time a new visitor opens them. It may be used to accelerate any type of website because it provides the cached content much faster than the web server each time a customer opens the same site again. You'll be able to use Node.js for online applications which demand real-time server-client interaction like online chats or booking sites. In contrast to other platforms that await the user to input everything on a form, Node.js processes the information bit by bit as the user fills every box, so it operates much faster and more efficiently. All dedicated server packages come with several gigabytes of memory dedicated to those three web accelerators.
