A web accelerator is a software program that speeds up a website typically by caching content and providing it instead of the hosting server. Such applications may be used for both static and dynamic websites since there are various accelerators that can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The main advantage of employing a web accelerator is that a given Internet site shall perform considerably faster without using more resources. Just the opposite, such a website will demand a lesser amount of resources to work because the web accelerator will deal with most requests instead of the server. Unlike many companies that don't offer web accelerators with their solutions or offer only 1, we offer three different ones that'll allow you to speed up your websites regardless of their style or content.

Web Accelerators in Cloud Web Hosting

When you buy one of our cloud web hosting solutions, you will have 3 well-known web accelerators at your disposal and you shall be able to access them directly using the Hepsia CP that is included with our plans. Varnish is one of the most well-known ones and it can tremendously accelerate any site as it caches the web pages a site visitor opens for the first time and provides them each and every time that guest opens them again. Since Varnish works faster than any web server, the loading speed of any website using the accelerator shall raise considerably. Memcached is employed to cache database and API calls and responses between a website visitor and a web server, so it's comparable to Varnish, but is used primarily for database-driven Internet sites. Considering that the site shall connect to its database significantly less, the overall server load shall be decreased notably. The last accelerator, Node.js, is used for scalable online apps including chats and booking Internet sites since it processes info in real time the moment it is entered on the website by the users. Depending on the plan you select, these accelerators could be available or might be an optional upgrade.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

You shall be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the sites hosted inside your semi-dedicated server account based on the nature of the site content. Memcached, in particular, caches database requests, therefore it is a fantastic option for any script app such as WordPress or Joomla. That way, the database web server won't need to process the same request if multiple users open a webpage with the same content. Varnish is comparable, but it is a general-purpose accelerator since it caches any type of content the first time a visitor opens a page. If this page is opened again by the same website visitor, it will be provided by Varnish at a greater speed compared to the web server. Using this web accelerator shall lessen the load produced by your Internet sites considerably. Last, but not least, Node.js shall permit you to create scalable web applications like hotel booking websites or chats. Its advantage over very similar platforms is that it does not wait for a client to submit a big piece of info, but processes whatever the customer is inputting in real-time. The 3 web accelerators are available in the Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to select how many instances of each one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they can employ.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

Memcached, Varnish and Node.js come with all dedicated servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and depending on the package you choose, you will also have several gigabytes of dedicated memory for them. Memcached can decrease the server load by lowering the number of queries which have to be taken care of since it caches database calls and responses. You'll be able to use it on any Internet site which uses an API or a database - as an illustration, any website designed with WordPress or Joomla. Varnish can improve the performance of any kind of website by caching whole webpages the first time a guest opens them. The accelerator delivers the web pages if the exact same visitor opens them later and considering the fact that it does that much quicker than the web server, the website visitor will be able to look through your Internet site at least several times faster. That is why Varnish is occasionally called an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is an advanced platform which will enable you to create booking websites, web chats and other apps where real-time server-user interaction is necessary. It processes the data in small pieces as the client fills different boxes and does not wait for all boxes to be filled and processed as one substantial piece of data, which makes Node.js considerably quicker than similar programs.
