A web accelerator is a program that quickens a website, usually by caching its content. There are many types of accelerators, but in the typical case such applications cache static content or database responses and provide them in place of the server, therefore enhancing the performance of an Internet site drastically. The latter can be done because accelerator apps work faster than a hosting server and not simply will a site operate better, but the server load shall also decline, which will allow you to run heavy Internet sites with less system resources. We offer three web accelerators with our hosting packages, which will enable you to accelerate any type of website. In comparison, most website hosting firms don't provide any web accelerators or offer one, which limits your choice of web applications in case you would like to use this type of software.

Web Accelerators in Hosting

In case you host your websites within a hosting account from us, you will have 3 popular web accelerators to choose from if you would like to improve the sites' functionality. Memcached is used for database-driven websites and it caches the calls and requests between a website and its database, so it could minimize the load of such sites drastically. Varnish caches entire webpages the first time a site visitor opens them and provides them from there on if the same website visitor opens them again. It does that much more quickly than the server, so it can easily raise the loading speed of any website nearly 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time apps that works on the hosting server and not within the visitor's Internet browser. It's used for accommodation booking, chats and other programs where a lot of data has to be processed in real time. The availability of those accelerators depends on the hosting package which 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 VPS Hosting

All virtual private servers that are incorporated with the Hepsia Control Panel come with Varnish, Memcached and Node.js already included and you'll have several hundred megabytes of dedicated memory for them by default. Varnish, that's also known as an HTTP reverse proxy, caches webpages the first time a visitor opens them and delivers them in case that visitor opens them again, hence the web server shall not have to perform any action. Due to the fact that Varnish works faster than any server, a website employing this accelerator will operate several times quicker. Memcached is a platform which caches database calls and responses and it is employed for WordPress, Joomla and other script-driven applications which store their content inside a database. Node.js is an efficient platform for creating scalable web programs. Any info on a website that uses Node.js is processed right away, making it a great choice for dining and accommodation booking Internet sites, web-based chats, web browser games, etcetera.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Web Hosting

In case you pick Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel for your new dedicated server, you shall have Memcached, Varnish and Node.js at your disposal for increasing the speed of your sites. Memcached can reduce the load on the server by lowering the queries your script-driven sites make since it caches database responses. This web accelerator is good for dynamic sites built with WordPress, Joomla and similar scripts. Varnish, which is referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy, caches whole websites the first time a new guest opens them. It could be employed to speed up any sort of Internet site since it delivers the cached content considerably faster than the server every time a customer opens the same site again. You can employ Node.js for online apps that demand real-time server-client interaction including online chats or booking sites. Unlike other platforms which wait for the user to fill everything on a form, Node.js processes the information gradually as the user fills each box, so it works faster and more effectively. All dedicated server solutions come with several gigabytes of memory dedicated to these 3 web accelerators.
