A web accelerator is a server-side application that quickens a site. Such a piece of software could operate in different ways depending on the website content, but in the general situation all such applications cache content and deliver it instead of the web server. This is valid for both dynamic and static websites since the cached content can be simple text or database responses and the advantage of using a web accelerator is not only the faster loading site, but also the reduced overall load on the web server. That way, you'll be able to use a lower-end hosting solution which will also cost less while your site visitors can still enjoy fast browsing speeds. Few companies supply web accelerators with their hosting packages and they often offer only 1, while we offer three different ones which will allow you to boost the performance of any type of website considerably.

Web Accelerators in Cloud Hosting

When you host your websites inside a cloud hosting account from our company, you shall have 3 popular web accelerators to choose from if you'd like to boost the sites' functionality. Memcached is employed for database-driven sites and it caches the calls and requests between a website and its database, so it could decrease the load of such Internet sites tremendously. Varnish caches whole pages the first time a website visitor opens them and provides them from there on if the same website visitor opens them again. It does that much faster than the web server, so it can easily increase the loading speed of any website as much as 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time programs which functions on the hosting server and not inside the visitor's web browser. It is employed for accommodation booking, chats and other applications where plenty of data has to be processed in real time. The availability of these accelerators depends upon the hosting solution that you select - they might 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 shall be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the sites hosted within your semi-dedicated server account based on the nature of the site content. Memcached, for example, caches database requests, therefore it is a great choice for any script program such as WordPress or Joomla. That way, the database server won't have to process the exact same request if a number of users open a website with the same content. Varnish is comparable, but it is a general-purpose accelerator since it caches any sort of content the first time a visitor opens a site. If this webpage is opened again by the very same website visitor, it will be delivered by Varnish at a greater speed compared to the server. Using this web accelerator shall decrease the load generated by your sites tremendously. Last, but not least, Node.js will allow you to produce scalable web programs like hotel booking Internet sites or chats. Its advantage over very similar platforms is that it doesn't wait for a customer to submit a big piece of data, but processes whatever the user is inputting in real-time. The 3 web accelerators are available inside the Hepsia Control Panel and you'll be able to choose how many instances of every one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they may use.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

Memcached, Node.js and Varnish are available by default with all our dedicated servers which are ordered with Hepsia as the Internet hosting CP. These three web accelerators include several gbs of dedicated memory and you can use them to speed up any kind of Internet site. Memcached can substantially minimize the load on the hosting server if you have script-driven Internet sites because it caches database responses, so it minimizes the number of database queries which the hosting server has to tackle. Node.js shall permit you to create scalable applications with real-time user-server interaction such as chats or dining booking Internet sites. Its advantage over comparable platforms is that it processes data as soon as the end user enters it, so all the info is managed faster and in small pieces. Varnish caches whole Internet pages the first time a site visitor opens them and delivers them each and every time the same visitor opens them again, that makes it a universal accelerator for any sort of sites. As it functions quicker than any hosting server, it can easily speed up a site at least several times and due to this fact, Varnish is amongst the most popular web accelerators available on the market.
