A web accelerator is an application which accelerates a website, typically by caching its content. There are many types of accelerators, but in the common case this sort of programs cache static content or database responses and provide them in lieu of the hosting server, as a consequence increasing the performance of a site noticeably. The latter can be done because accelerator applications work faster than a hosting server and not simply will an Internet site function better, but the server load will also lessen, which will allow you to run heavy Internet sites with less resources. We provide three web accelerators with our hosting packages, which will enable you to speed up any kind of site. In comparison, most hosting companies don't provide any web accelerators or provide only one, which limits your choice of web applications in case you'd like to use this kind of software.
Web Accelerators in Shared Hosting
In case you host your sites inside a shared hosting
account from our firm, you'll have three popular web accelerators to choose from if you would like to enhance the sites' performance. Memcached is employed for database-driven websites and it caches the calls and requests between a site and its database, so it could minimize the load of such Internet sites considerably. Varnish caches entire web pages the first time a visitor opens them and delivers them from there on if the same visitor opens them again. It does that much faster than the web server, so it can easily increase the loading speed of any Internet site up to 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time apps which functions on the web server and not in the visitor's web browser. It is employed for holiday accommodation booking, chats and other apps where lots of data should be processed in real time. The availability of those accelerators depends on the hosting plan which you select - they may come by default or as an upgrade. In both cases, you will be able to add more instances or more memory for each of them.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The Hepsia CP which is included with our semi-dedicated hosting
solutions will allow you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your websites. Memcached is one of the most well known accelerators as it can easily accelerate any API or database-driven website by caching requests and responses, thus the web server won't have to process identical requests time after time. The platform is suitable for sites designed with programs such as Joomla™
, Mambo or WordPress. Varnish is an effective accelerator which caches any kind of content and is also known as an HTTP reverse proxy. It caches webpages that are opened by a site visitor for the first time and provides them each time that same guest opens them again. Varnish can certainly speed up a website several times as it delivers content quicker than any hosting server. Node.js is a platform used for scalable real-time apps like chats, web browser games or social networks. It processes info in little parts as soon as a user enters anything, therefore it works much faster than similar platforms in which users submit large parts of info which require time to be processed. You can select the number of instances and the dedicated memory for every one of the 3 accelerators via your CP.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers Hosting
In the event that you buy a dedicated server
from our firm and you pick Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel, you'll be able to use Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your websites. All plans include several gigabytes of memory dedicated to these accelerators and the actual amount depends on the package that you select. Node.js is used for scalable online programs like browser games or hotel booking and it processes the data right away as the client enters it, which makes it considerably faster than comparable platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you employ it for a script-driven website, not simply will the Internet site speed up, but also the load on the server will minimize as there will be 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 guest opens them and delivers them instead of the server each and every time the same visitor opens them later. Since Varnish processes web requests considerably faster than any web server, the efficiency of a site using this accelerator could increase as much as 300%.
