A web accelerator is an application that accelerates an Internet site, typically by caching its content. There are various sorts of accelerators, but in the general case such applications cache static content or database responses and deliver them in lieu of the hosting server, thus boosting the performance of a website noticeably. The latter can be done because accelerator apps work faster than a hosting server and not only will an Internet site operate better, but the server load shall also decrease, which will enable you to run heavy websites with less resources. We offer 3 web accelerators with our hosting plans, which will permit you to increase the speed of any kind of Internet site. In comparison, most Internet hosting companies do not offer any web accelerators or offer one, which limits your choice of web applications in case you want to employ this kind of software.
Web Accelerators in Shared Hosting
In case you buy one of our shared hosting packages, you shall have 3 widely used 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 tremendously speed up any Internet site as it caches the web pages a visitor opens for the first time and delivers them every time that visitor opens them again. Because Varnish operates much faster than any web server, the loading speed of any site using the accelerator will grow substantially. Memcached is used to cache database and API calls and responses between a visitor and a hosting server, so it's similar to Varnish, but is employed primarily for database-driven websites. Considering that the website will connect to its database much less, the overall server load shall be decreased significantly. The last accelerator, Node.js, is used for scalable online apps such as chats and booking websites because it processes info in real time as soon as it is entered on the website by the users. Depending on the plan you select, these accelerators could be available or could be an optional upgrade.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server solutions shall permit you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js - 3 of the most powerful web accelerators out there. Memcached is employed to cache database and API calls and responses, so it can easily increase the speed of any script-driven website. You could use it for any website built with WordPress or Joomla, for instance. Varnish is also known as an HTTP reverse proxy and it's a general-purpose caching platform that could be used for any type of sites. Based on the content, it can easily raise the performance of an Internet site as much as 300%. Node.js is an advanced system employed to develop scalable Internet programs that process data in real time such as booking portals. Its advantage is that unlike similar platforms, it processes info continuously and in small pieces rather than waiting for the user to submit one large piece of data. The accelerators may be enabled for any site from the Hepsia CP and you'll be able to pick how many instances of each one of them will work and how much memory they'll use.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers
In case you buy a dedicated server from our company and you opt for Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel, you will be able to use Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your websites. All solutions come with several gigabytes of memory dedicated to those accelerators and the actual amount depends on the package deal that you choose. Node.js is employed for scalable online apps including browser games or hotel booking and it processes the information immediately as the client enters it, which makes it considerably quicker than very similar platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you use it for a script-driven Internet site, not only will the Internet site speed up, but also the load on the server will minimize since there shall be considerably less database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it's not at all limited to databases. Instead, it caches entire pages once a website visitor opens them and delivers them instead of the server each time the same visitor opens them afterwards. Since Varnish processes web requests much quicker than any hosting server, the efficiency of an Internet site using this accelerator can increase as much as 300%.
