A web accelerator is an application that speeds up a website, normally by caching its content. There are various sorts of accelerators, but in the typical case this kind of programs cache static content or database responses and deliver them in lieu of the web server, as a consequence boosting the performance of a site noticeably. The latter is possible because accelerator apps work faster than a hosting server and not only will a site work better, but the server load will also lessen, which will permit you to run heavy websites with less system resources. We provide three web accelerators with our hosting packages, which will allow you to accelerate any type of site. In comparison, most Internet hosting service providers don't offer any web accelerators or offer one, which limits your choice of web apps in case you want to use this kind of software.

Web Accelerators in Shared Web Hosting

If you purchase one of our shared web hosting plans, you'll have 3 widely used web accelerators at your disposal and you shall be able to access them directly using the Hepsia CP that comes with our plans. Varnish is one of the most well-known ones and it could tremendously accelerate any Internet site because it caches the web pages that a website visitor opens for the first time and delivers them each and every time that website visitor opens them again. Because Varnish operates way quicker than any web server, the loading speed of any website using the accelerator shall grow considerably. Memcached is employed to cache database and API calls and responses between an Internet site visitor and a hosting server, so it's similar to Varnish, but is used largely for database-driven sites. Because the site shall connect to its database much less, the overall hosting server load will be minimized notably. The third accelerator, Node.js, is used for scalable online applications such as chats and booking sites because it processes info in real time the instant it is entered on the website by the users. Dependant upon the package you pick, these accelerators could be available or could be an optional upgrade.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the websites hosted in your semi-dedicated server account depending on the nature of the website content. Memcached, for example, caches database requests, therefore it is a great choice for any script app such as WordPress or Joomla. That way, the database hosting server will not need to process the very same request if multiple users open a webpage with the same content. Varnish is similar, but it is a general-purpose accelerator since it caches any sort of content the first time a guest opens a site. In case that web page is opened again by the exact same visitor, it shall be provided by Varnish at a much higher speed compared to the server. Employing this web accelerator shall reduce the load generated by your sites considerably. Last, but not least, Node.js will enable you to create scalable web apps such as hotel booking sites or chats. Its advantage over similar platforms is that it doesn't wait for a customer to submit a large piece of info, but processes whatever the client is entering in real-time. The three web accelerators are available in the Hepsia CP and you shall be able to pick how many instances of each one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they may employ.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

If you pick Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel for your new dedicated server, you shall have Memcached, Varnish and Node.js available for accelerating your Internet sites. Memcached can reduce the load on the web server by lowering the queries your script-driven Internet sites make as it caches database responses. This web accelerator is perfect for dynamic sites designed with WordPress, Joomla and very similar scripts. Varnish, which is referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy, caches entire pages the first time a new visitor opens them. It could be employed to accelerate any type of Internet site because it delivers the cached content faster than the server each time a customer opens the same webpage again. You could employ Node.js for online programs which demand real-time server-client interaction including online chats or booking Internet sites. Different from other platforms which wait for the user to enter everything on a form, Node.js processes the information bit by bit as the user fills each and every box, so it functions considerably faster and more effectively. All dedicated server solutions come with several gigabytes of memory dedicated to those 3 web accelerators.
