A web accelerator is a server-side app which accelerates a site. Such a piece of software can work in different ways depending on the site content, but in the general situation all such apps cache content and deliver it instead of the web server. That's valid for both static and dynamic sites because the cached content could be simple text or database responses and the advantage of employing a web accelerator isn't just the faster loading website, but also the smaller overall load on the server. This way, you can use a lower-end hosting plan that will also cost less while your website visitors can still enjoy high browsing speeds. Several companies offer web accelerators with their hosting deals and they often offer just one, while we offer three different ones which will enable you to enhance the performance of any type of Internet site noticeably.

Web Accelerators in Web Hosting

In case you host your websites inside a web hosting account from our company, you will have 3 popular web accelerators to choose from if you would like to enhance the sites' efficiency. Memcached is employed for database-driven sites and it caches the calls and requests between a website and its database, so it can easily reduce the load of such sites tremendously. Varnish caches entire webpages the first time a site visitor opens them and provides them from there on if the same site visitor opens them again. It does that considerably faster than the server, so it could increase the loading speed of any website as much as 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time programs that functions on the hosting server and not in the visitor's web browser. It is employed for accommodation booking, chats and other programs where plenty of data needs to be processed in real time. The availability of the accelerators depends upon the hosting plan that you select - they could come by default or as an upgrade. In each case, you'll be able to add more instances or more memory for every one of them.

Web Accelerators in VPS

If you get a virtual private server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to employ Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your Internet sites. All three accelerators are integrated in our plans by default and feature dedicated memory of a few hundred megabytes. Node.js is employed to build scalable apps where real-time interaction is necessary - booking Internet sites, online games, chats, etcetera. It processes the data in smaller portions as the end user is entering it, therefore it operates much faster than other platforms that wait for the end users to input one massive part of information. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator that works as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it in case the same guest opens the same webpage again, which could speed any website several times as Varnish functions more quickly than any server. Memcached is used for caching API and database responses, consequently it's ideal for script-driven Internet sites like WordPress and Joomla. This web accelerator can reduce the load on your hosting server because it'll lower the number of database queries your websites make.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Hosting

Memcached, Varnish and Node.js are provided with all dedicated servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting CP and in accordance with the plan which you pick, you shall also have several gigabytes of dedicated memory for them. Memcached will reduce the hosting server load by lowering the amount of queries that have to be taken care of as it caches database calls and responses. You'll be able to use it on every Internet site that uses an API or a database - for instance, any site developed with WordPress or Joomla. Varnish could improve the performance of any type of Internet site by caching whole pages the first time a visitor opens them. The accelerator provides the web pages if the same visitor opens them later on and since it does that considerably quicker than the hosting server, the visitor shall be able to look through your Internet site at least a few times faster. For this reason Varnish is often called an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is an innovative platform that will permit you to create booking websites, web chats and other apps where real-time server-user interaction is needed. It processes the info in small portions as the user fills different boxes and does not wait for all boxes to be filled and processed as one big piece of info, which makes Node.js considerably quicker than similar apps.
