A web accelerator is a server-side program which quickens a site. Such a piece of software can function in different ways based on the site content, but in the general case all such programs cache content and deliver it instead of the web server. This is valid for both static and dynamic sites as the cached content can be simple text or database responses and the advantage of employing a web accelerator is not simply the faster loading website, but also the minimized overall load on the machine. That way, you'll be able to employ a lower-end hosting package that'll also cost less while your website visitors could still enjoy high browsing speeds. Few firms offer web accelerators with their hosting packages and they usually offer only one, while we offer three different ones which will enable you to boost the performance of any sort of site substantially.

Web Accelerators in Cloud Web Hosting

We provide 3 of the most popular web accelerators together with our cloud web hosting packages and based upon what plan you shall pick when you sign up, they might already be available or they might be an optional upgrade. Varnish is the most widely used one of them and it may be used for any sort of site. It caches the pages the first time a website visitor opens them and provides them at a much faster speed compared to the web server each and every time that a visitor opens them again. Memcached is employed to cache API and database calls, so it can easily boost the speed of dynamic websites like online stores, forums or social networks. Node.js is used for scalable web apps and it functions in real-time, which makes it excellent for server-side data processing - chats, browser games, booking portals, and so on. You shall be able to select how much memory these accelerators will employ and how many instances of each will run from your Hepsia website hosting CP.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the websites hosted inside your semi-dedicated server account in accordance with the nature of the website content. Memcached, for instance, caches database requests, therefore it's a fantastic choice for any script program like WordPress or Joomla. That way, the database web server won't need to process exactly the same request if many users open a site with the same content. Varnish is very similar, but it is a general-purpose accelerator since it caches any sort of content the first time a website visitor opens a site. If that webpage is opened again by the exact same visitor, it'll be provided by Varnish at a much higher speed compared to the server. Using this web accelerator will lessen the load created by your Internet sites significantly. Last, but not least, Node.js shall allow you to build scalable web applications such as hotel booking Internet sites or chats. Its advantage over comparable platforms is that it doesn't wait for a customer to submit a large piece of information, but processes whatever the user is entering in real-time. The 3 web accelerators are available in the Hepsia CP and you shall be able to choose how many instances of each and every one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they may use.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

Memcached, Varnish and Node.js come with all dedicated servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and based on the plan which you opt for, you will also have several gigabytes of dedicated memory for them. Memcached will decrease the server load by lowering the amount of queries that have to be dealt with since it caches database calls and responses. You shall be able to use it on every Internet site which uses an API or a database - as an illustration, any website built with WordPress or Joomla. Varnish could improve the performance of any type of website by caching whole pages the first time a visitor opens them. The accelerator provides the web pages if the same visitor opens them afterwards and given that it does that considerably faster than the web server, the website visitor shall be able to browse your website at least a couple of times faster. This is why Varnish is oftentimes categorised as an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is an innovative platform that'll permit you to create booking sites, web chats and other apps in which real-time server-user interaction is required. It processes the info in tiny portions as the user fills different boxes and doesn't wait for all boxes to be filled and processed as one sizeable chunk of info, which makes Node.js considerably quicker than similar apps.
