A web accelerator is a server-side application which speeds up a site. Such a piece of software can operate in different ways based on the website content, but in the typical case all such programs cache content and deliver it instead of the hosting server. This is valid for both dynamic and static sites as the cached content may be simple text or database responses and the benefit of using a web accelerator is not simply the faster loading Internet site, but also the lessened overall load on the hosting server. That way, you may employ a lower-end hosting package that will also cost less while your site visitors will be able to still enjoy fast browsing speeds. Several firms offer web accelerators with their hosting packages and they usually offer only one, while we offer 3 different ones which will permit you to enhance the performance of any sort of site considerably.

Web Accelerators in Cloud Website Hosting

When you host your sites within a cloud website hosting account from us, you shall have three popular web accelerators to pick from if you'd like to improve the sites' performance. Memcached is employed for database-driven Internet sites and it caches the calls and requests between an Internet site and its database, so it could decrease the load of such websites substantially. Varnish caches entire pages the first time a visitor opens them and delivers them from there on if the same guest opens them again. It does that much faster than the hosting server, so it could increase the loading speed of any site nearly 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time apps that operates on the web server and not in the visitor's world-wide web browser. It is used for holiday accommodation booking, chats and other programs where a lot of data should be processed in real time. The availability of the accelerators depends on the hosting plan that you pick - they could come by default or as an upgrade. In both cases, you'll be able to add more instances or more memory for every one of them.

Web Accelerators in VPS Web Hosting

In case you obtain a virtual private server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you shall be able to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your sites. All three accelerators are integrated inside our packages by default and feature dedicated memory of several hundred megabytes. Node.js is used to build scalable apps where real-time interaction is necessary - booking sites, online flash games, chats, etcetera. It processes the info in little bits as the user is entering it, therefore it works faster than other platforms which wait for the users to input one massive bit of data. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator that works as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it in case the same guest opens the same website again, which could speed any website several times as Varnish functions faster than any web server. Memcached is used for caching API and database responses, therefore it is suitable for script-driven websites like WordPress and Joomla. This web accelerator can reduce the load on your server because it'll reduce the amount of database queries which your websites make.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Memcached, Node.js and Varnish are provided by default with all our dedicated servers that are ordered with Hepsia as the web hosting CP. These 3 web accelerators offer several gbs of dedicated memory and you could employ them to speed up any type of Internet site. Memcached can significantly decrease the load on the server if you have script-driven websites because it caches database responses, so it lessens the number of database queries that the hosting server has to take care of. Node.js shall permit you to develop scalable apps with real-time user-server interaction such as chats or dining booking websites. Its advantage over similar platforms is that it processes info the moment the end user enters it, so all the data is handled quicker and in small pieces. Varnish caches whole pages the first time a visitor opens them and delivers them each time the same guest opens them again, that makes it a universal accelerator for any type of websites. Since it functions faster than any hosting server, it can easily speed up an Internet site at least several times and because of this, Varnish is one of the most widely used web accelerators available on the market.
