A web accelerator is a server-side application that quickens an Internet site. Such a piece of software may function in different ways based on the website content, but in the general situation all such applications cache content and deliver it instead of the server. That is valid for both dynamic and static websites since the cached content can be simple text or database responses and the reward of employing a web accelerator is not just the faster loading site, but also the minimized overall load on the server. This way, you may employ a lower-end hosting plan that will also cost less while your visitors can still enjoy high browsing speeds. Handful of firms supply web accelerators with their hosting plans and they usually offer only 1, while we offer 3 different ones that'll allow you to improve the performance of any type of website tremendously.

Web Accelerators in Cloud Website Hosting

In case you host your sites inside a cloud website hosting account from our firm, you will have three popular web accelerators to select from if you would like to enhance the sites' functionality. Memcached is used for database-driven websites and it caches the calls and requests between a site and its database, so it could lessen the load of such sites significantly. Varnish caches entire web pages the first time a site visitor opens them and delivers them from there on if the same site visitor opens them again. It does that much faster than the web server, so it can easily boost the loading speed of any Internet site approximately 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time apps which functions on the server and not inside the visitor's web browser. It's used for accommodation booking, chats and other apps where a lot of data has to be processed in real time. The availability of the accelerators depends upon the hosting package that you choose - they could come by default or as an upgrade. In both cases, you shall be able to add more instances or more memory for every one of them.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You'll be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the Internet sites hosted within your semi-dedicated hosting account depending on the nature of the website content. Memcached, for instance, caches database requests, so it is an excellent choice for any script app such as WordPress or Joomla. That way, the database web server won't need to process the exact same request if multiple users open a webpage with the same content. Varnish is comparable, but it's a general-purpose accelerator since it caches any kind of content the first time a guest opens an Internet site. In case that webpage is opened again by the very same website visitor, it will be delivered by Varnish at a much higher speed compared to the hosting server. Employing this web accelerator can decrease the load created by your Internet sites significantly. Last, but not least, Node.js will permit you to produce scalable web apps like hotel booking Internet sites or chats. Its advantage over very similar platforms is that it does not wait for a client to submit a large piece of info, but processes whatever the user is inputting in real-time. The 3 web accelerators are available within the Hepsia CP and you shall be able to choose how many instances of every one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they'll use.

Web Accelerators in VPS Hosting

In case you choose your virtual private server to be incorporated with the Hepsia Control Panel, you shall be able to use Varnish, Memcached and Node.js - 3 of the most popular web accelerators. Varnish caches websites the first time they are visited and provides them every time the same person visits them again, which can speed up any sort of site several times. Memcached is used for dynamic script applications like Joomla and WordPress because it caches database requests and responses, as a result the database hosting server shall not need to process the very same webpage each and every time guests open it in case the same content should be displayed. Node.js is a platform for developing real-time apps such as online games and chats. It works considerably faster than similar platforms because it processes the data in small bits all the time and doesn't wait for users to enter a large piece of data that shall need more time to be processed. The three web accelerators are provided with all Hepsia-based VPS packages and come with several hundred MBs of dedicated memory.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Web Hosting

Memcached, Varnish and Node.js come with all dedicated servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting CP and depending on the package deal that you opt for, you will also have several gigabytes of dedicated memory for them. Memcached can minimize the web server load by lowering the number of queries that need to be dealt with because it caches database calls and responses. You shall be able to use it on every website that uses an API or a database - for example, any website built with WordPress or Joomla. Varnish can boost the performance of any sort of Internet site by caching whole pages the first time a visitor opens them. The accelerator provides the pages if the very same visitor opens them later on and considering the fact that it does that faster than the hosting server, the website visitor will be able to browse your site at least a few times faster. For this reason Varnish is oftentimes categorised as an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is a sophisticated platform that'll allow you to build booking sites, web chats and other apps where real-time server-user interaction is necessary. It processes the information in small bits as the client fills different boxes and does not wait for all boxes to be filled and processed as one massive piece of info, which makes Node.js considerably quicker than similar applications.
