A web accelerator is a server-side app which quickens an Internet site. Such a piece of software may operate in different ways depending on the website content, but in the typical case all such applications cache content and deliver it instead of the hosting server. That's valid for both static and dynamic sites because the cached content may be simple text or database responses and the advantage of using a web accelerator is not just the faster loading Internet site, but also the minimized overall load on the web server. This way, you can employ a lower-end hosting package which will also cost less while your website visitors can still enjoy fast browsing speeds. Handful of companies provide web accelerators with their hosting packages and they usually offer only one, while we offer 3 different ones that will enable you to boost the performance of any kind of website substantially.
Web Accelerators in Web Hosting
In case you purchase one of our web hosting
solutions, you'll have 3 widely used web accelerators at your disposal and you'll be able to access them directly through the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with our solutions. Varnish is one of the most well-known ones and it could tremendously increase the speed of any website since it caches the web pages a visitor opens for the first time and delivers them each time that website visitor opens them again. Given that Varnish works considerably faster than any server, the loading speed of any website using the accelerator shall raise significantly. Memcached is employed to cache database and API calls and responses between a site visitor and a hosting server, so it's similar to Varnish, but is used mainly for database-driven websites. Considering that the Internet site will connect to its database a lot less, the overall web server load shall be reduced substantially. The 3rd accelerator, Node.js, is employed for scalable online applications including chats and booking websites since it processes information in real time the moment it is entered on the webpage by the users. Depending on the package you choose, these accelerators could be available or may be an optional upgrade.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you choose one of our semi-dedicated hosting
plans, you shall be able to work with Varnish, Memcached and Node.js - three powerful web accelerators. Varnish is a multi-purpose app that caches webpages the first time a website visitor opens them and delivers them instead of the server if the visitor opens them again up to 300% quicker. Memcached caches API and database calls and responses so that the hosting server does not have to process every request, that makes it perfect for database-driven websites, for instance ones developed with Joomla™
or WordPress. Node.js is used to produce web applications which operate in real-time including chats or accommodation booking websites and it processes each bit of data the instant the user types it as opposed to waiting for sizeable chunks of data to be accumulated. The Hepsia Control Panel which is provided with our semi-dedicated plans shall enable you to choose how many instances of each accelerator will work at a time and the amount of memory they'll use.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Hosting
Memcached, Node.js and Varnish are available by default with all our dedicated servers
which are ordered with Hepsia as the Internet hosting CP. These 3 web accelerators come with several gigabytes of dedicated memory and you can employ them to speed up any kind of Internet site. Memcached can substantially lessen the load on the server if you have script-driven Internet sites because it caches database responses, so it decreases the number of database queries which the hosting server has to take care of. Node.js will allow you to create scalable apps with real-time user-server interaction such as chats or dining booking sites. Its advantage over similar platforms is that it processes information as soon as the user enters it, so all the information is taken care of quicker and in small pieces. Varnish caches entire webpages the first time a website visitor opens them and provides them every time the same website visitor opens them again, that makes it a universal accelerator for any type of Internet sites. Because it works faster than any web server, it could speed up a website at least several times and due to this fact, Varnish is among the most widely used web accelerators out there.
