A web accelerator is a piece of software which accelerates an Internet site generally by caching content and delivering it instead of the server. Such apps can be used for both dynamic and static sites because there are different accelerators which can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The best thing about using a web accelerator is that a given Internet site will perform substantially faster without using extra system resources. Quite the opposite, this type of a website will need significantly less resources to function since the web accelerator will tackle most requests rather than the web server. Unlike many companies that do not offer web accelerators with their solutions or offer only one, we offer three different ones which will allow you to speed up your Internet sites whatever their type or content.

Web Accelerators in Shared Hosting

In case you host your websites within a shared hosting account from our company, you will have 3 popular web accelerators to pick from if you'd like to improve the sites' efficiency. Memcached is used for database-driven websites and it caches the calls and requests between a website and its database, so it can decrease the load of such sites tremendously. Varnish caches whole pages the first time a website visitor opens them and delivers them from there on if the same site visitor opens them again. It does that much more quickly than the hosting server, so it can easily boost the loading speed of any website up to 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time apps that functions on the server and not in the visitor's Internet browser. It is employed for accommodation booking, chats and other programs where loads of data needs to be processed in real time. The availability of those accelerators depends upon the hosting plan that you choose - they could 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

You'll be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the sites hosted inside your semi-dedicated server account based on the nature of the site content. Memcached, for example, caches database requests, therefore it's a superb choice for any script program such as WordPress or Joomla. This way, the database web server will not have to process the very same request if a number of users open a webpage with the same content. Varnish is very similar, but it's a general-purpose accelerator because it caches any sort of content the first time a guest opens a page. If this page is opened again by the exact same website visitor, it shall be provided by Varnish at a much better speed compared to the server. Employing this web accelerator will minimize the load generated by your sites tremendously. Last, but not least, Node.js shall enable you to produce scalable web programs such as hotel booking Internet sites or chats. Its advantage over similar platforms is that it doesn't wait for a customer to submit a big piece of information, but processes whatever the client is typing in real-time. The 3 web accelerators are available in the Hepsia Control Panel 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 Dedicated Servers

Memcached, Varnish and Node.js are provided with all dedicated servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and in accordance with the package you select, you'll also have several gbs of dedicated memory for them. Memcached can reduce the web server load by lowering the number of queries that need to be handled because it caches database calls and responses. You will be able to use it on any site that uses an API or a database - for example, any site created with WordPress or Joomla. Varnish can enhance the performance of any sort of website by caching whole webpages the first time a guest opens them. The accelerator delivers the web pages if the very same visitor opens them later and since it does that much faster than the hosting server, the website visitor shall be able to look through your Internet site at least a few times faster. This is why Varnish is oftentimes called an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is a sophisticated platform that will enable you to develop booking sites, web chats and other programs in which real-time server-user interaction is required. It processes the info in tiny bits as the user fills different boxes and doesn't wait for all boxes to be filled and processed as one sizeable piece of information, which makes Node.js way quicker than similar apps.
