A web accelerator is a software which accelerates a website, typically by caching its content. There are various kinds of accelerators, but in the typical case such applications cache static content or database responses and provide them instead of the server, hence boosting the performance of a site considerably. The latter is achievable because accelerator applications work faster than a hosting server and not only will a website operate better, but the server load shall also decrease, which will enable you to run heavy sites with less resources. We offer three web accelerators with our hosting packages, which will permit you to speed up any type of website. In comparison, most hosting companies don't offer any web accelerators or provide one, which limits your choice of web applications in the event that you would like to use this type of software.
Web Accelerators in Shared Web Hosting
When you host your Internet sites in a shared web hosting account from our firm, you will have 3 popular web accelerators to select from if you'd like to improve the sites' performance. Memcached is used for database-driven Internet sites and it caches the calls and requests between a website and its database, so it can reduce the load of such Internet sites significantly. Varnish caches entire web pages the first time a site visitor opens them and provides them from there on if the same visitor opens them again. It does that much faster than the server, so it can easily boost the loading speed of any site as much as 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time programs that functions on the server and not in the visitor's web browser. It's used for holiday accommodation booking, chats and other apps where lots of data has to be processed in real time. The availability of these accelerators depends upon the hosting solution that you choose - they might come by default or as an upgrade. In each case, you'll be able to include more instances or more memory for each one of them.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you pick one of our semi-dedicated server packages, you shall be able to employ Varnish, Memcached and Node.js - three efficient web accelerators. Varnish is a multi-purpose application which caches websites the first time a website visitor opens them and provides them instead of the web server if the visitor opens them again close to 300% faster. Memcached caches API and database calls and responses so that the server does not need to process each and every request, that makes it perfect for database-driven sites, for example ones built with Joomla or WordPress. Node.js is employed to produce web programs that operate in real-time such as chats or accommodation booking websites and it processes each bit of data the moment the user types it as opposed to waiting for big pieces of info to be accumulated. The Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with our semi-dedicated solutions will enable you to select how many instances of each accelerator shall work at a time and just how much memory they will use.
Web Accelerators in VPS Servers
If you choose your VPS server to be incorporated with the Hepsia CP, you will be able to use Varnish, Memcached and Node.js - three of the most widespread web accelerators. Varnish caches sites the first time they are visited and provides them every time the same individual visits them again, which shall boost any kind of Internet site several times. Memcached is employed for dynamic script applications such as Joomla and WordPress because it caches database requests and responses, as a consequence the database server shall not need to process the very same webpage each time visitors open it if the same content should be shown. Node.js is a platform for developing real-time apps such as online games and chats. It works much quicker than similar platforms since it processes the information in little portions all the time and does not wait for users to input a sizable piece of data which shall require more time to be processed. The three web accelerators are offered with all Hepsia-based VPS solutions and come with several hundred MBs of dedicated memory.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers
Memcached, Varnish and Node.js are offered with all dedicated servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and depending on the package you opt for, you shall also have several gbs of dedicated memory for them. Memcached can reduce the server load by lowering the number of queries that have to be dealt with because 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 developed with WordPress or Joomla. Varnish can easily boost the performance of any type of website by caching whole webpages the first time a guest opens them. The accelerator provides the pages if the very same visitor opens them later and because it does that faster than the server, the website visitor shall be able to browse your website at least several times faster. This is why Varnish is often called an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is an advanced platform which will allow you to build booking websites, web chats and other programs in which real-time server-user interaction is required. It processes the information in little parts as the client fills different boxes and does not wait for all boxes to be filled and processed as one big piece of data, which makes Node.js considerably faster than similar programs.
