A web accelerator is a server-side app that accelerates an Internet site. Such a piece of software could function in different ways based on the website content, but in the typical situation all such applications cache content and deliver it instead of the hosting server. This is valid for both dynamic and static Internet sites since 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 machine. This way, you'll be able to employ a lower-end hosting package which will also cost less while your site visitors can still enjoy superior browsing speeds. Few firms supply web accelerators with their hosting packages and they usually offer only 1, while we offer three different ones that'll enable you to enhance the performance of any type of website noticeably.

Web Accelerators in Shared Hosting

In case you host your websites in a shared hosting account from our firm, you'll have three popular web accelerators to choose from if you would like to enhance the sites' performance. Memcached is used for database-driven websites and it caches the calls and requests between a website and its database, so it could decrease the load of such sites drastically. Varnish caches entire pages the first time a website visitor opens them and provides them from there on if the same visitor opens them again. It does that much more quickly than the web server, so it could increase the loading speed of any Internet site approximately 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time applications that operates on the server and not in the visitor's world-wide web browser. It is employed for holiday accommodation booking, chats and other programs where plenty of data needs to be processed in real time. The availability of these accelerators depends on the hosting package that you pick - they may come by default or as an upgrade. In each case, you will be able to add more instances or more memory for each of them.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You shall be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the Internet sites hosted inside your semi-dedicated hosting account based on the nature of the site content. Memcached, in particular, caches database requests, so it is a fantastic choice for any script app such as WordPress or Joomla. This way, the database server will not have to process exactly the same request if multiple 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 visitor opens a page. In case that page is opened again by the exact same visitor, it shall be delivered by Varnish at a much better speed compared to the web server. Using this web accelerator shall reduce the load created by your sites significantly. Last, but not least, Node.js shall permit you to produce scalable web apps such as hotel booking sites or chats. Its advantage over very similar platforms is that it doesn't wait for a client to submit a large piece of data, but processes whatever the user is inputting in real-time. The three web accelerators are available in the Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to select how many instances of each one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they'll employ.

Web Accelerators in VPS Hosting

In the event that you choose your virtual private server to be incorporated with the Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to use Varnish, Memcached and Node.js - 3 of the most popular web accelerators. Varnish caches sites the first time they are visited and delivers them each and every time the same individual visits them again, which will speed up any kind of website several times. Memcached is employed for dynamic script programs for instance Joomla and WordPress because it caches database requests and responses, thus the database server shall not need to process the very same webpage each time visitors open it in case the same content should be displayed. Node.js is a platform for building real-time applications for example online games and chats. It functions faster than similar platforms since it processes the information in little portions all the time and doesn't wait for users to input a large piece of data which shall need more time to be processed. The three web accelerators are available with all Hepsia-based VPS solutions and feature several hundred MBs of dedicated memory.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Web Hosting

If you acquire a dedicated server from us and you pick Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel, you'll be able to employ Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your Internet sites. All solutions come with several gigabytes of memory dedicated to these accelerators and the specific amount depends on the package that you select. Node.js is employed for scalable online apps like browser games or hotel booking and it processes the info right away as the client enters it, which makes it faster than comparable platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you employ it for a script-driven site, not only will the site speed up, but also the load on the hosting server will decrease as there shall be a lesser amount of database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it is not limited to databases. Instead, it caches entire webpages once a guest opens them and delivers them instead of the hosting server whenever the same visitor opens them later on. Because Varnish processes web requests much quicker than any hosting server, the performance of a site using this accelerator can increase as much as 300%.
