A web accelerator is a server-side application which quickens a website. Such a piece of software can function in different ways depending upon the site content, but in the general case all such apps cache content and deliver it instead of the server. That's valid for both static and dynamic Internet sites as the cached content can be simple text or database responses and the advantage of employing a web accelerator is not only the faster loading website, but also the minimized overall load on the web server. This way, you may use a lower-end hosting plan that will also cost less while your site visitors could still enjoy fast browsing speeds. Handful of companies offer web accelerators with their hosting packages and they often offer only 1, while we offer three different ones which will enable you to boost the performance of any type of website significantly.

Web Accelerators in Shared Web Hosting

In case you host your websites inside a shared web hosting account from us, you will have 3 popular web accelerators to choose from if you'd like to boost the sites' performance. Memcached is employed for database-driven websites and it caches the calls and requests between a site and its database, so it can decrease the load of such Internet sites considerably. Varnish caches entire web pages the first time a site visitor opens them and delivers them from there on if the same guest opens them again. It does that considerably faster than the server, so it can boost the loading speed of any Internet site approximately 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time apps that operates on the web server and not inside the visitor's Internet browser. It is employed for holiday accommodation booking, chats and other programs where a lot of data has to be processed in real time. The availability of those accelerators depends on the hosting package which you select - they may come by default or as an upgrade. In both cases, you shall be able to include more instances or more memory for each one of them.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server plans will enable you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js - three of the most effective web accelerators available. Memcached is used to cache database and API calls and responses, therefore it can easily speed up any script-driven Internet site. You may use it for any Internet site designed with WordPress or Joomla, for instance. Varnish is also often called an HTTP reverse proxy and it's a general-purpose caching platform which may be employed for any type of sites. With regards to the content, it can improve the performance of a website up to 300%. Node.js is a sophisticated system used to build scalable Internet apps that process information in real time for instance booking portals. Its advantage is that unlike comparable platforms, it processes information continuously and in small bits rather than waiting for the user to submit one large piece of data. The accelerators could be enabled for any Internet site from the Hepsia Control Panel and you shall be able to pick how many instances of each of them shall work and how much memory they'll employ.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

Memcached, Varnish and Node.js are available with all dedicated servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting CP and based on the plan you pick, you shall also have several gigabytes of dedicated memory for them. Memcached will lessen the web server load by lowering the number of queries that have to be addressed because it caches database calls and responses. You shall be able to use it on any website which uses an API or a database - for example, any site built with WordPress or Joomla. Varnish can easily enhance the performance of any sort of site by caching whole pages the first time a guest opens them. The accelerator delivers the web pages if the exact same visitor opens them later and given that it does that considerably quicker than the hosting server, the website visitor will be able to surf your site at least a few times faster. This is why Varnish is occasionally referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is an advanced platform that'll permit you to build booking sites, web chats and other programs where real-time server-user interaction is needed. It processes the info in small pieces as the user fills different boxes and doesn't wait for all boxes to be filled and processed as one substantial chunk of info, which makes Node.js considerably faster than similar applications.
