A web accelerator is a server-side application that accelerates a website. Such a piece of software may work in different ways depending upon the site content, but in the general situation all such applications cache content and deliver it instead of the hosting server. That's valid for both dynamic and static websites because the cached content can be simple text or database responses and the benefit of employing a web accelerator is not simply the faster loading website, but also the decreased overall load on the web server. This way, you could employ a lower-end hosting plan that'll also cost less while your visitors will be able to still enjoy superior browsing speeds. Handful of companies supply web accelerators with their hosting deals and they frequently offer just one, while we offer three different ones that will enable you to improve the performance of any sort of Internet site noticeably.
Web Accelerators in Shared Hosting
In case you acquire one of our shared hosting solutions, you'll have 3 widely used web accelerators at your disposal and you'll be able to access them directly through the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with our solutions. Varnish is one of the most widely used ones and it could tremendously increase the speed of any Internet site as it caches the web pages a site visitor opens for the first time and delivers them each time that guest opens them again. Because Varnish functions noticeably faster than any web server, the loading speed of any site using the accelerator shall improve substantially. Memcached is used to cache database and API calls and responses between a visitor and a hosting server, so it's comparable to Varnish, but is employed primarily for database-driven sites. Considering that the Internet site will connect to its database a lot less, the overall server load shall be decreased notably. The last accelerator, Node.js, is used for scalable online programs such as chats and booking Internet sites because it processes information in real time the instant it is entered on the site by the users. Depending on the package you choose, these accelerators could be available or may be an optional upgrade.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You shall be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the sites hosted inside your semi-dedicated hosting account in accordance with the nature of the site content. Memcached, for instance, caches database requests, so it is a fantastic option for any script app such as WordPress or Joomla. This way, the database hosting server will not need to process exactly the same request if multiple users open a webpage with the same content. Varnish is very similar, but it's a general-purpose accelerator because it caches any kind of content the first time a website visitor opens an Internet site. In case this webpage is opened again by the same guest, it will be delivered by Varnish at a greater speed compared to the server. Using this web accelerator shall lessen the load generated by your Internet sites considerably. Last, but not least, Node.js shall enable you to produce scalable web applications such as hotel booking websites or chats. Its advantage over very similar platforms is that it does not wait for a customer to submit a sizable piece of info, but processes whatever the user is typing in real-time. The 3 web accelerators are available in the Hepsia Control Panel and you shall be able to pick how many instances of each one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they may use.
Web Accelerators in VPS
We provide Memcached, Node.js and Varnish with all virtual private servers which are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. Your server will also come with several hundred megabytes of dedicated memory for these accelerators and the specific amount would depend on the package that you pick. Memcached is employed for script-driven Internet sites as it caches database responses, thus decreasing the number of queries that a script sends to its database. It can be used for any script such as WordPress or Joomla. Node.js is a highly effective platform for creating web programs including booking Internet sites and chats. The real-time interaction between end users and a hosting server is carried out by processing little pieces of data as soon any user enters anything on the website. In comparison, other platforms wait for customers to enter loads of data before they process it, as a result they operate more slowly. Varnish is a multi-purpose accelerator that caches whole web pages and delivers them instead of the hosting server at a considerably quicker rate. It is also often called an HTTP reverse proxy and it can effortlessly speed up any type of website.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Hosting
In the event that you purchase a dedicated server from our company and you opt for Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel, you shall be able to use Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your Internet sites. All solutions feature several gigabytes of memory dedicated to these accelerators and the specific amount depends on the package deal that you select. Node.js is employed for scalable online applications including browser games or hotel booking and it processes the info right away as the client enters it, which makes it much quicker than similar platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you use it for a script-driven website, not simply will the site work faster, but also the load on the web server will minimize because there shall be less database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it is not limited to databases. Instead, it caches entire webpages once a guest opens them and provides them instead of the web server every time the same visitor opens them later. As Varnish processes web requests much faster than any web server, the efficiency of a website using this accelerator can increase nearly 300%.
