A web accelerator is a program that accelerates a website, normally by caching its content. There are different types of accelerators, but in the common case this sort of programs cache static content or database responses and deliver them in lieu of the hosting server, therefore boosting the performance of a site significantly. The latter is achievable because accelerator apps work faster than a hosting server and not only will a website work better, but the server load will also minimize, which will permit you to run heavy sites with less system resources. We provide 3 web accelerators with our hosting solutions, which will enable you to speed up any sort of website. In comparison, most web hosting firms don't provide any web accelerators or offer only one, which limits your choice of web applications in the event that you want to use this kind of software.

Web Accelerators in Cloud Web Hosting

When you host your websites within a cloud web hosting account from us, you'll have three popular web accelerators to choose from if you'd like to improve the sites' performance. Memcached is used for database-driven websites and it caches the calls and requests between a site and its database, so it could minimize the load of such websites substantially. Varnish caches entire webpages the first time a website visitor opens them and delivers them from there on if the same visitor opens them again. It does that much more quickly than the server, so it could boost the loading speed of any Internet site as much as 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time programs which operates on the server and not in the visitor's browser. It's used for accommodation booking, chats and other applications where plenty of data has to be processed in real time. The availability of those accelerators depends upon the hosting plan which you select - they could 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 Hosting

You'll be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the sites hosted inside your semi-dedicated hosting account in accordance with the nature of the site content. Memcached, for example, caches database requests, therefore it's a great choice for any script program like WordPress or Joomla. This way, the database server won't need to process the same request if multiple users open a webpage with the same content. Varnish is similar, but it's a general-purpose accelerator since it caches any type of content the first time a website visitor opens a site. In case this webpage is opened again by the very same website visitor, it shall be provided by Varnish at a much higher speed compared to the hosting server. Employing this web accelerator will decrease the load created by your sites significantly. Last, but not least, Node.js will permit you to build scalable web apps such as hotel booking sites or chats. Its advantage over similar platforms is that it doesn't wait for a customer to submit a big piece of info, but processes whatever the user is inputting in real-time. The 3 web accelerators are available within the Hepsia Control Panel and you'll be able to pick how many instances of each one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they can employ.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Hosting

Memcached, Varnish and Node.js are offered with all dedicated servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and depending on the plan you select, you'll also have several gigabytes of dedicated memory for them. Memcached will minimize the hosting server load by lowering the amount of queries that have to be handled 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 developed with WordPress or Joomla. Varnish can easily boost the performance of any kind of Internet site by caching whole pages the first time a visitor opens them. The accelerator delivers the web pages if the very same visitor opens them later on and considering the fact that it does that considerably faster than the hosting server, the website visitor will be able to surf your website at least several times faster. That's why Varnish is sometimes categorised as an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is an advanced platform that will allow you to build booking sites, web chats and other apps in which real-time server-user interaction is necessary. It processes the data in tiny portions as the client fills different boxes and does not wait for all boxes to be filled and processed as one massive piece of information, which makes Node.js way quicker than similar programs.
