A web accelerator is a server-side app that quickens a site. Such a piece of software may operate 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. That is valid for both dynamic and static Internet sites because the cached content could be simple text or database responses and the benefit of using a web accelerator is not just the faster loading website, but also the reduced overall load on the hosting server. This way, you'll be able to use a lower-end hosting solution which will also cost less while your website visitors can still enjoy fast browsing speeds. Handful of service providers provide web accelerators with their hosting deals and they often offer only one, while we offer 3 different ones which will allow you to improve the performance of any sort of site substantially.

Web Accelerators in Shared Web Hosting

Our shared web hosting packages feature three web accelerators that you could use depending on the sites that you'd like to run. Memcached is used to cache database or API calls and responses, which can considerably boost the functionality of dynamic Internet sites. Varnish is a popular HTTP accelerator that caches web pages and delivers them to the website visitors much faster than the server after the first time they open them. Node.js is an event-driven platform employed for scalable real-time programs such as booking sites. With respect to the web hosting package you choose, these 3 programs may already be included or could be optional upgrades. In any case, you'll be able to choose how many instances of each of them will be at your disposal and how much memory they should use. These accelerators are supplied only by several web hosting companies, including ours, and they could boost the speed of your web programs drastically.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

The Hepsia Control Panel which is provided with our semi-dedicated server solutions shall permit you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your websites. Memcached is one of the most famous accelerators since it can easily accelerate any API or database-driven site by caching requests and responses, as a result the hosting server will not have to process identical requests again and again. The platform is suitable for websites designed with applications such as Joomla, Mambo or WordPress. Varnish is an efficient accelerator which caches any type of content and is also frequently called an HTTP reverse proxy. It caches pages which are opened by a website visitor for the first time and provides them every time that very same site visitor opens them again. Varnish can easily speed up a site several times because it delivers content quicker than any server. Node.js is a platform used for scalable real-time apps such as chats, web browser games or social networks. It processes info in small bits the instant a user types anything, as a result it functions considerably faster than similar platforms where users submit massive parts of data that require time to be processed. You could choose the number of instances and the dedicated memory for each and every one of the 3 accelerators using your CP.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

Memcached, Varnish and Node.js come with all dedicated servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting CP and in accordance with the package that you select, you will also have several gigabytes of dedicated memory for them. Memcached can minimize the server load by lowering the number of queries which need to be taken care of because it caches database calls and responses. You will be able to use it on any website which uses an API or a database - for example, any site created with WordPress or Joomla. Varnish can easily improve the performance of any sort of site by caching whole pages the first time a guest opens them. The accelerator provides the pages if the same visitor opens them afterwards and considering the fact that it does that way quicker than the server, the visitor will be able to surf your site at least several times faster. This is why Varnish is occasionally categorised as an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is a sophisticated platform that'll allow you to create booking sites, web chats and other applications where real-time server-user interaction is required. It processes the information in tiny parts as the user fills different boxes and does not wait for all boxes to be filled and processed as one large piece of data, which makes Node.js much quicker than similar applications.
