A web accelerator is a server-side program which speeds up an Internet site. Such a piece of software could operate in different ways depending on the website content, but in the typical case all such apps cache content and deliver it instead of the server. That is valid for both dynamic and static sites as the cached content could be simple text or database responses and the advantage of employing a web accelerator isn't simply the faster loading site, but also the smaller overall load on the web server. That way, you could employ a lower-end hosting plan which will also cost less while your site visitors will be able to still enjoy fast browsing speeds. Several firms supply web accelerators with their hosting plans and they often offer just 1, while we offer three different ones which will permit you to improve the performance of any sort of website significantly.

Web Accelerators in Shared Web Hosting

In case you acquire one of our shared web hosting solutions, you will have 3 widely used web accelerators at your disposal and you'll be able to access them directly through the Hepsia CP that is included with our solutions. Varnish is one of the most popular ones and it could tremendously speed up any Internet site because it caches the pages a site visitor opens for the first time and delivers them each time that visitor opens them again. Since Varnish operates way quicker than any server, the loading speed of any website using the accelerator shall grow significantly. Memcached is employed to cache database and API calls and responses between a website visitor and a server, so it's much like Varnish, but is used predominantly for database-driven Internet sites. Since the Internet site shall connect to its database significantly less, the overall hosting server load will be minimized significantly. The third accelerator, Node.js, is employed for scalable online apps including chats and booking websites because it processes data in real time the moment it is entered on the webpage by the users. Dependant upon the plan you select, these accelerators may be available or could be an optional upgrade.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You'll be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the websites hosted inside your semi-dedicated hosting account based on the nature of the website content. Memcached, for instance, caches database requests, therefore it's a fantastic option for any script app such as WordPress or Joomla. That way, the database web server will not have to process the exact same request if a number of users open a page with the same content. Varnish is similar, but it is a general-purpose accelerator since it caches any type of content the first time a visitor opens an Internet site. In case this webpage is opened again by the same visitor, it will be provided by Varnish at a much better speed compared to the hosting server. Employing this web accelerator can lessen the load created by your Internet sites substantially. Last, but not least, Node.js will permit you to produce scalable web programs such as hotel booking Internet sites or chats. Its advantage over similar platforms is that it does not wait for a customer to submit a big piece of info, but processes whatever the user is typing in real-time. The 3 web accelerators are available in the Hepsia CP and you'll be able to choose how many instances of each one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they'll use.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers Hosting

In case you order a dedicated server from our firm and you choose Hepsia as the hosting CP, you'll be able to use Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your sites. All plans feature several gigabytes of memory dedicated to those accelerators and the actual amount depends on the package deal you choose. Node.js is used for scalable online apps such as browser games or hotel booking and it processes the info instantly as the client enters it, which makes it faster than similar platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you use it for a script-driven Internet site, not simply will the site work faster, but also the load on the hosting server will reduce as there will be less database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it is not limited to databases. Instead, it caches whole webpages once a guest opens them and provides them instead of the hosting server each and every time the same visitor opens them afterwards. Since Varnish processes web requests considerably faster than any server, the performance of a website using this accelerator can increase nearly 300%.
