A web accelerator is a server-side program that speeds up a website. Such a piece of software may work in different ways depending on the site content, but in the general case all such programs cache content and deliver it instead of the hosting server. This is valid for both static and dynamic sites since the cached content could be simple text or database responses and the reward of using a web accelerator is not only the faster loading website, but also the decreased overall load on the hosting server. This way, you may use a lower-end hosting plan that will also cost less while your site visitors will be able to still enjoy high browsing speeds. Few businesses offer web accelerators with their hosting plans and they typically offer only 1, while we offer three different ones that will permit you to boost the performance of any kind of site tremendously.

Web Accelerators in Website Hosting

When you host your Internet sites within a website hosting account from us, you'll have 3 popular web accelerators to pick from if you would like to boost the sites' performance. Memcached is employed for database-driven Internet sites and it caches the calls and requests between a site and its database, so it can easily lessen the load of such sites considerably. Varnish caches whole webpages the first time a visitor opens them and delivers them from there on if the same website visitor opens them again. It does that faster than the hosting server, so it could increase the loading speed of any site nearly 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time applications which works on the server and not within the visitor's world-wide web browser. It's used for accommodation booking, chats and other programs where loads of data needs to be processed in real time. The availability of the accelerators depends upon the hosting solution that you choose - they may come by default or as an upgrade. In each case, you shall be able to add more instances or more memory for each one of them.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

You'll be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the websites hosted inside your semi-dedicated server account depending on the nature of the website content. Memcached, for example, caches database requests, therefore it's a great option for any script application such as WordPress or Joomla. That way, the database hosting server won't have to process the very same request if multiple users open a page 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 a site. If this web page is opened again by the very same visitor, it shall be delivered by Varnish at a much better speed compared to the server. Employing this web accelerator will lessen the load produced by your sites drastically. Last, but not least, Node.js will allow you to produce scalable web apps such as hotel booking websites or chats. Its advantage over very similar platforms is that it does not wait for a user to submit a substantial piece of data, but processes whatever the user is entering in real-time. The 3 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 can employ.

Web Accelerators in VPS Servers

All VPS servers which are set up with the Hepsia CP come with Varnish, Memcached and Node.js already included and you will receive several hundred MBs of dedicated memory for them by default. Varnish, that's also referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy, caches webpages the first time a website visitor opens them and delivers them if that visitor opens them again, so the web server shall not have to perform any action. Since Varnish operates much quicker than any server, a website using this accelerator will function several times swifter. Memcached is a platform which caches database calls and responses and it is employed for WordPress, Joomla and other script-driven apps that store their content within a database. Node.js is a highly effective platform for developing scalable web applications. Any information on a site which uses Node.js is processed instantly, which makes it a superb choice for dining and accommodation booking websites, web-based chats, web browser games, and so forth.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

Memcached, Varnish and Node.js are provided with all dedicated servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting CP and in accordance with the package deal that you select, you will also have several gbs of dedicated memory for them. Memcached can lessen the hosting server load by lowering the amount of queries that need to be addressed since it caches database calls and responses. You'll be able to use it on every site which uses an API or a database - for example, any site created with WordPress or Joomla. Varnish can easily enhance the performance of any sort of Internet site by caching whole pages the first time a guest opens them. The accelerator provides the webpages if the same visitor opens them afterwards and considering the fact that it does that considerably quicker than the web server, the website visitor shall be able to look through your site at least a couple of times faster. For this reason Varnish is sometimes called an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is an advanced platform that will allow you to create booking sites, web chats and other applications where real-time server-user interaction is needed. It processes the information in small parts as the user fills different boxes and does not wait for all boxes to be filled and processed as one massive chunk of information, which makes Node.js way quicker than similar applications.
