A web accelerator is a program that accelerates an Internet site, normally by caching its content. There are many kinds of accelerators, but in the typical case this sort of applications cache static content or database responses and supply them in lieu of the server, thus enhancing the performance of a site drastically. The latter is possible because accelerator programs work faster than a server and not simply will an Internet site work better, but the server load shall also minimize, which will permit you to run heavy Internet sites with less resources. We provide three web accelerators with our hosting plans, which will allow you to speed up any kind of Internet site. In comparison, most Internet hosting companies do not provide any web accelerators or offer only 1, which limits your choice of web applications in case you want to use this kind of software.
Web Accelerators in Cloud Web Hosting
If you buy one of our cloud web hosting packages, you shall have three well-known web accelerators at your disposal and you shall be able to access them directly using the Hepsia CP that comes with our packages. Varnish is one of the most popular ones and it can considerably increase the speed of any website as it caches the web pages that a website visitor opens for the first time and provides them each and every time that website visitor opens them again. Because Varnish works much faster than any server, the loading speed of any website using the accelerator will increase significantly. Memcached is used to cache database and API calls and responses between a website visitor and a hosting server, so it is similar to Varnish, but is employed mainly for database-driven sites. Considering that the site will connect to its database way less, the overall server load shall be minimized notably. The last accelerator, Node.js, is used for scalable online apps like chats and booking sites as it processes info in real time as soon as it is entered on the site by the users. Dependant upon the plan you select, these accelerators might be available or might be an optional upgrade.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You shall be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the websites hosted in your semi-dedicated hosting account based on the nature of the website content. Memcached, in particular, caches database requests, so it is an excellent choice for any script app like WordPress or Joomla. That way, the database hosting server shall not need to process the same request if multiple users open a site with the same content. Varnish is comparable, but it's a general-purpose accelerator as it caches any sort of content the first time a website visitor opens an Internet site. In case this webpage is opened again by the exact same visitor, it'll be provided by Varnish at a much better speed compared to the server. Using this web accelerator shall lessen the load created by your Internet sites substantially. Last, but not least, Node.js will allow you to produce scalable web applications like hotel booking sites or chats. Its advantage over comparable platforms is that it doesn't wait for a user to submit a large piece of info, but processes whatever the client is entering in real-time. The 3 web accelerators are available within the Hepsia CP and you will be able to choose how many instances of every one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they'll employ.
Web Accelerators in VPS Web Hosting
All virtual private servers that are integrated with the Hepsia Control Panel come with Varnish, Memcached and Node.js already included and you'll receive several hundred MBs of dedicated memory for them by default. Varnish, that's also known as an HTTP reverse proxy, caches web pages the first time a website visitor opens them and delivers them when that visitor opens them again, therefore the server shall not have to perform any action. Since Varnish operates considerably faster than any server, a website using this accelerator shall function several times quicker. Memcached is a platform which caches database calls and responses and it's employed for WordPress, Joomla and other script-driven applications which store their content within a database. Node.js is an efficient platform for building scalable web apps. Any information on an Internet site which employs Node.js is processed in real time, making it a great choice for dining and accommodation booking Internet sites, web-based chats, web browser games, and so forth.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers Hosting
In the event that you purchase a dedicated server from us and you select Hepsia as the hosting CP, you'll be able to use Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your Internet sites. All solutions include several gigabytes of memory dedicated to these accelerators and the exact amount depends on the package deal you select. Node.js is used for scalable online apps like browser games or hotel booking and it processes the info in real time as the client enters it, which makes it much quicker than very similar platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you use it for a script-driven website, not simply will the site speed up, but also the load on the hosting server will reduce since there will be fewer database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it's not limited to databases. Rather, it caches whole web pages once a website visitor opens them and provides them instead of the hosting server whenever the same visitor opens them afterwards. Due to the fact that Varnish processes web requests considerably faster than any web server, the performance of a website using this accelerator could increase around 300%.
