A web accelerator is a software which speeds up a site, normally by caching its content. There are different types of accelerators, but in the general case such applications cache static content or database responses and provide them in lieu of the hosting server, therefore increasing the performance of a site drastically. The latter can be done because accelerator applications work faster than a hosting server and not only will a site function better, but the server load shall also decline, which will enable you to run heavy websites with less system resources. We provide three web accelerators with our hosting packages, which will enable you to speed up any kind of site. In comparison, most website hosting service providers don't provide any web accelerators or offer only one, which limits your choice of web apps in case you want to use such software.
Web Accelerators in Website Hosting
When you purchase one of our website hosting plans, you shall have three popular web accelerators at your disposal and you shall be able to access them directly through the Hepsia Control Panel which is included with our packages. Varnish is one of the most well-known ones and it can significantly accelerate any Internet site as it caches the pages that a visitor opens for the first time and provides them every time that visitor opens them again. Since Varnish works much faster than any web server, the loading speed of any site using the accelerator shall grow significantly. Memcached is employed to cache database and API calls and responses between an Internet site visitor and a web server, so it is comparable to Varnish, but is employed predominantly for database-driven websites. Because the site shall connect to its database way less, the overall web server load shall be reduced considerably. The third accelerator, Node.js, is employed for scalable online applications like chats and booking Internet sites as it processes info in real time as soon as it is entered on the webpage by the users. Depending on the plan you select, these accelerators may be available or could be an optional upgrade.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated hosting plans will allow you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js - three of the most powerful web accelerators out there. Memcached is used to cache database and API calls and responses, therefore it can increase the speed of any script-driven site. You may use it for any site developed with WordPress or Joomla, for instance. Varnish is also known as an HTTP reverse proxy and it is a general-purpose caching platform that can be used for any type of websites. Depending on the content, it could boost the performance of a site approximately 300%. Node.js is a sophisticated system used to build scalable Internet programs which process information in real time for instance booking portals. Its advantage is that in contrast to similar platforms, it processes data consistently and in small portions instead of waiting for the user to submit one large chunk of data. The accelerators could be enabled for any Internet site from the Hepsia CP and you shall be able to choose how many instances of each of them shall work and how much memory they will use.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Hosting
Memcached, Node.js and Varnish are available by default with all our dedicated servers that are ordered with Hepsia as the web hosting CP. These three web accelerators feature several gigabytes of dedicated memory and you may use them to speed up any type of Internet site. Memcached can greatly minimize the load on the server if you have script-driven sites as it caches database responses, therefore it lessens the amount of database queries that the hosting server has to deal with. Node.js will enable you to develop scalable apps with real-time user-server interaction like chats or dining booking websites. Its advantage over comparable platforms is that it processes data as soon as the user enters it, so all the info is taken care of swifter and in small bits. Varnish caches whole pages the first time a site visitor opens them and provides them every time the same guest opens them again, that makes it a universal accelerator for any kind of Internet sites. Since it functions quicker than any server, it could speed up an Internet site at least several times and as a result, Varnish is amongst the most popular web accelerators around.
