A web accelerator is a server-side app that accelerates a website. Such a piece of software may work in different ways based on the website content, but in the typical case all such applications cache content and deliver it instead of the hosting server. That is valid for both dynamic and static sites because the cached content may be simple text or database responses and the reward of employing a web accelerator isn't simply the faster loading website, but also the minimized overall load on the web server. That way, you'll be able to use a lower-end hosting solution which will also cost less while your website visitors could still enjoy superior browsing speeds. Several firms supply web accelerators with their hosting deals and they often offer only 1, while we offer three different ones that will permit you to boost the performance of any kind of Internet site substantially.

Web Accelerators in Hosting

If you host your Internet sites within a hosting account from our company, you shall have three popular web accelerators to choose from if you'd like to improve the sites' functionality. Memcached is employed for database-driven websites and it caches the calls and requests between a site and its database, so it can easily minimize the load of such Internet sites considerably. Varnish caches entire pages the first time a visitor opens them and delivers them from there on if the same guest opens them again. It does that much more quickly than the web server, so it can easily raise the loading speed of any Internet site approximately 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time applications that works on the hosting server and not inside the visitor's Internet browser. It's employed for holiday accommodation booking, chats and other applications where lots of data needs to be processed in real time. The availability of these accelerators depends upon the hosting solution that you choose - they might 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 Servers

You shall be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the Internet sites hosted in your semi-dedicated server account depending on the nature of the website content. Memcached, for instance, caches database requests, therefore it is an excellent choice for any script app like WordPress or Joomla. That way, the database server won't need to process the exact same request if a number of users open a site with the same content. Varnish is similar, but it is a general-purpose accelerator as it caches any type of content the first time a guest opens a site. If this page is opened again by the same website visitor, it will be delivered by Varnish at a much better speed compared to the server. Using this web accelerator shall minimize the load generated by your websites significantly. Last, but not least, Node.js shall permit you to build scalable web applications such as hotel booking sites or chats. Its advantage over very similar platforms is that it does not wait for a user to submit a big piece of data, but processes whatever the user is inputting in real-time. The 3 web accelerators are available in the Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to pick how many instances of each and every one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they may employ.

Web Accelerators in VPS Servers

All VPS servers that are incorporated with the Hepsia Control Panel come with Varnish, Memcached and Node.js already included and you'll receive several hundred MBs of dedicated memory for them by default. Varnish, which is also known as an HTTP reverse proxy, caches webpages the first time a website visitor opens them and delivers them if that guest opens them again, so the server shall not have to perform any action. Due to the fact that Varnish operates considerably faster than any web server, a website using this accelerator will work several times faster. Memcached is a platform that caches database calls and responses and it's used for WordPress, Joomla and other script-driven applications that store their content within a database. Node.js is an effective platform for building scalable web applications. Any info on a website which employs Node.js is processed right away, which makes it a superb choice for dining and accommodation booking sites, web-based chats, Internet browser games, etc.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

In case 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 will be able to minimize the load on the hosting server by lowering the queries your script-driven sites make as it caches database responses. This web accelerator is ideal for dynamic sites designed with WordPress, Joomla and comparable scripts. Varnish, which is known as an HTTP reverse proxy, caches whole pages the first time a new guest opens them. It could be employed to speed up any sort of Internet site as it delivers the cached content way quicker than the web server every time a website visitor opens the same webpage again. You'll be able to 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 await the user to enter everything on a form, Node.js processes the data piece by piece as the user fills each box, so it operates considerably quicker and more efficiently. All dedicated server packages come with several gigabytes of memory dedicated to those three web accelerators.
