A web accelerator is a program that speeds up a website, typically by caching its content. There are different types of accelerators, but in the typical case this kind of applications cache static content or database responses and deliver them in place of the web server, hence improving the performance of a site significantly. The latter is possible because accelerator apps work faster than a hosting server and not only will an Internet site function better, but the server load shall also decline, which will permit you to run heavy sites with less resources. We offer 3 web accelerators with our hosting packages, which will allow you to increase the speed of any kind of website. In comparison, most web hosting companies do not provide any web accelerators or offer one, which limits your choice of web apps in the event that you'd like to use such software.
Web Accelerators in Shared Hosting
When you host your websites in a shared hosting
account from our company, you shall have 3 popular web accelerators to select from if you would like to enhance the sites' efficiency. Memcached is used for database-driven Internet sites and it caches the calls and requests between a website and its database, so it can easily lessen the load of such sites considerably. Varnish caches whole webpages the first time a website visitor opens them and delivers them from there on if the same guest opens them again. It does that faster than the hosting server, so it can easily raise the loading speed of any website up to 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time applications which operates on the hosting server and not within the visitor's world-wide web browser. It's employed for holiday accommodation booking, chats and other apps where plenty of data should be processed in real time. The availability of those accelerators depends upon the hosting solution which you pick - they might come by default or as an upgrade. In each case, you shall be able to add more instances or more memory for each one of them.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you opt for one of our semi-dedicated hosting
solutions, you shall be able to use Varnish, Memcached and Node.js - three efficient web accelerators. Varnish is a multi-purpose application that caches websites the first time a visitor opens them and provides them instead of the web server if the visitor opens them again nearly 300% more quickly. Memcached caches API and database calls and responses so the web server doesn't need to process each request, that makes it perfect for database-driven websites, such as ones developed with Joomla™
or WordPress. Node.js is used to develop web programs that function in real-time like chats or accommodation booking portals and it processes every bit of information the instant the user enters it as opposed to waiting for massive chunks of information to be accumulated. The Hepsia Control Panel which is provided with our semi-dedicated packages will permit you to pick how many instances of every accelerator shall work at a time and the amount of memory they will use.
Web Accelerators in VPS
If you obtain a virtual private server
with the Hepsia CP, you shall be able to employ Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your sites. All three accelerators are incorporated in our solutions by default and feature dedicated memory of several hundred MBs. Node.js is used to create scalable apps where real-time interaction is necessary - booking sites, online flash games, chats, and so on. It processes the data in smaller bits as the end user is entering it, therefore it functions faster than other platforms that wait for the end users to submit one big bit of data. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator which operates as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it when the same website visitor opens the same webpage again, which can easily speed any website several times due to the fact that Varnish operates quicker than any server. Memcached is used for caching API and database responses, therefore it's ideal for script-driven sites such as WordPress and Joomla™
. This web accelerator can reduce the load on your server because it will decrease the number of database queries your sites make.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Hosting
If you buy a dedicated server
from us and you opt for Hepsia as the hosting CP, you'll be able to employ Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your websites. All solutions come with several gigabytes of memory dedicated to these accelerators and the exact amount depends on the package you choose. Node.js is used for scalable online apps including browser games or hotel booking and it processes the information in real time as the user enters it, which makes it faster than very similar platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you employ it for a script-driven Internet site, not simply will the site work faster, but also the load on the web server will decrease as there will be fewer database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it's not at all limited to databases. Instead, it caches entire webpages once a guest opens them and provides them instead of the server each and every time the same visitor opens them afterwards. As Varnish processes web requests faster than any hosting server, the efficiency of a site using this accelerator can increase as much as 300%.
