A web accelerator is a software application which speeds up an Internet site usually by caching content and providing it instead of the hosting server. Such apps could be used for both static and dynamic sites because there are a variety of accelerators that can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The main advantage of employing a web accelerator is that a given site shall perform noticeably faster without using extra resources. Quite the opposite, this type of a site will demand much less resources to work as the web accelerator will tackle most requests rather than the server. In contrast to many companies which do not offer web accelerators with their solutions or offer just one, we offer three different ones that'll permit you to speed up your websites whatever their type or content.

Web Accelerators in Cloud Hosting

In case you host your Internet sites in a cloud hosting account from us, you'll have three popular web accelerators to select from if you'd like to boost the sites' functionality. Memcached is used for database-driven sites and it caches the calls and requests between an Internet site and its database, so it could reduce the load of such Internet sites significantly. Varnish caches whole webpages the first time a site visitor opens them and delivers them from there on if the same website visitor opens them again. It does that much more quickly than the hosting server, so it can easily raise the loading speed of any website approximately 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time apps that works on the server and not within the visitor's Internet browser. It's used for accommodation booking, chats and other apps where lots of data needs to be processed in real time. The availability of those accelerators depends upon the hosting solution that you select - they might come by default or as an upgrade. In each case, you will be able to add more instances or more memory for each one of them.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

The Hepsia CP that comes with our semi-dedicated server solutions will allow you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your sites. Memcached is one of the most popular accelerators because it can effortlessly accelerate any API or database-driven Internet site by caching requests and responses, therefore the server will not need to process identical requests time after time. The platform is ideal for sites designed with applications like Joomla, Mambo or WordPress. Varnish is a powerful accelerator that caches any sort of content and is also often called an HTTP reverse proxy. It caches web pages that are opened by a visitor for the first time and provides them every time that very same visitor opens them again. Varnish can certainly speed up an Internet site several times simply because it delivers content faster than any hosting server. Node.js is a platform employed for scalable real-time applications such as chats, browser games or social networks. It processes info in smaller parts the moment a user enters anything, so it works faster than similar platforms in which users submit massive portions of data that require time to be processed. You could select the number of instances and the dedicated memory for each of the three accelerators via your CP.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

Memcached, Varnish and Node.js are available with all dedicated servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and based on the package that you choose, you'll also have several gigabytes of dedicated memory for them. Memcached can decrease the web server load by lowering the amount of queries which have to be addressed since it caches database calls and responses. You'll be able to use it on any Internet site that uses an API or a database - as an illustration, any website built with WordPress or Joomla. Varnish could improve the performance of any kind of site by caching whole pages the first time a visitor opens them. The accelerator provides the pages if the very same visitor opens them later on and given that it does that faster than the server, the visitor will be able to browse your site at least several times faster. That is why Varnish is oftentimes categorised as an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is a sophisticated platform that will allow you to create booking websites, web chats and other applications where real-time server-user interaction is necessary. It processes the data in tiny portions as the user fills different boxes and doesn't wait for all boxes to be filled and processed as one big chunk of info, which makes Node.js considerably faster than similar applications.
