A web accelerator is a server-side application which accelerates an Internet site. Such a piece of software may operate in different ways based on the site content, but in the general situation all such programs cache content and deliver it instead of the server. That's valid for both static and dynamic websites as the cached content can be simple text or database responses and the reward of using a web accelerator is not just the faster loading Internet site, but also the lessened overall load on the hosting server. That way, you could use a lower-end hosting plan that'll also cost less while your site visitors could still enjoy superior browsing speeds. Several companies provide web accelerators with their hosting packages and they often offer only one, while we offer three different ones that'll enable you to improve the performance of any kind of website tremendously.

Web Accelerators in Hosting

When you acquire one of our hosting packages, you shall have three popular web accelerators at your disposal and you will be able to access them directly through the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with our plans. Varnish is one of the most well-known ones and it can considerably increase the speed of any site since it caches the pages a visitor opens for the first time and provides them every time that guest opens them again. Since Varnish works noticeably faster than any server, the loading speed of any Internet site using the accelerator shall increase considerably. Memcached is used to cache database and API calls and responses between a site visitor and a server, so it is similar to Varnish, but is used primarily for database-driven sites. Because the Internet site shall connect to its database a lot less, the overall hosting server load will be reduced considerably. The last accelerator, Node.js, is employed for scalable online apps such as chats and booking Internet sites since it processes data in real time the moment it is entered on the website by the users. Dependant upon the package you select, these accelerators could be available or might be an optional upgrade.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

You'll 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, in particular, caches database requests, therefore it's an excellent option for any script application such as WordPress or Joomla. That way, the database hosting server shall not have to process exactly the same request if a number of users open a website with the same content. Varnish is comparable, but it's a general-purpose accelerator as it caches any kind of content the first time a website visitor opens an Internet site. In case that webpage is opened again by the exact same guest, it'll be provided by Varnish at a greater speed compared to the hosting server. Employing this web accelerator can minimize the load produced by your sites considerably. Last, but not least, Node.js shall allow you to create scalable web programs such as hotel booking sites or chats. Its advantage over very similar platforms is that it doesn't wait for a customer to submit a substantial piece of information, but processes whatever the user is entering in real-time. The three web accelerators are available inside the Hepsia CP and you will be able to choose how many instances of each one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they may use.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

Memcached, Node.js and Varnish are available by default with all our dedicated servers which are ordered with Hepsia as the web hosting CP. These three web accelerators feature several gbs of dedicated memory and you could use them to speed up any sort of site. Memcached can significantly lessen the load on the hosting server if you have script-driven websites since it caches database responses, so it lessens the number of database queries which the hosting server has to deal with. Node.js will permit you to create scalable programs with real-time user-server interaction like chats or dining booking Internet sites. Its advantage over very similar platforms is that it processes information the moment the user enters it, so all the info is handled quicker and in small pieces. Varnish caches entire webpages the first time a visitor opens them and delivers them each and every time the same guest opens them again, which makes it a universal accelerator for any sort of Internet sites. As it works faster than any web server, it can speed up an Internet site at least several times and due to this fact, Varnish is amongst the most popular web accelerators around.
