A web accelerator is a server-side program that accelerates a site. Such a piece of software could work in different ways depending upon the site content, but in the general case all such programs cache content and deliver it instead of the hosting server. That is valid for both dynamic and static websites as the cached content could be simple text or database responses and the reward of using a web accelerator is not simply the faster loading website, but also the minimized overall load on the machine. That way, you'll be able to use a lower-end hosting package that will also cost less while your visitors can still enjoy fast browsing speeds. Several service providers provide web accelerators with their hosting plans and they often offer just one, while we offer 3 different ones that'll permit you to improve the performance of any sort of Internet site considerably.
Web Accelerators in Shared Hosting
In case you purchase one of our shared hosting
packages, you'll have 3 well-known web accelerators at your disposal and you'll be able to access them directly through the Hepsia CP that comes with our packages. Varnish is one of the most popular ones and it could considerably speed up any site because it caches the pages a visitor opens for the first time and delivers them each and every time that guest opens them again. Since Varnish functions noticeably faster than any web server, the loading speed of any website using the accelerator will raise significantly. Memcached is used to cache database and API calls and responses between a visitor and a server, so it is similar to Varnish, but is used primarily for database-driven sites. Since the site shall connect to its database much less, the overall hosting server load shall be minimized substantially. The last accelerator, Node.js, is employed for scalable online apps including chats and booking websites since it processes information in real time as soon as it is entered on the webpage by the users. Dependant upon the plan you pick, these accelerators may be available or might be an optional upgrade.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel which comes with our semi-dedicated hosting
packages will permit you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your Internet sites. Memcached is one of the most famous accelerators as it can easily increase the speed of any API or database-driven website by caching requests and responses, as a result the server will not have to process identical requests time and time again. The platform is suitable for Internet sites created with applications 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 visitor for the first time and delivers them every time that same website visitor opens them again. Varnish can easily speed up a site several times because it delivers content quicker than any web server. Node.js is a platform employed for scalable real-time applications such as chats, browser games or social networks. It processes information in little parts as soon as a user types something, so it operates much faster than similar platforms where users submit big pieces of data that need time to be processed. You could choose the number of instances and the dedicated memory for each and every one of the three accelerators via your Control Panel.
Web Accelerators in VPS Hosting
If you obtain a virtual private server
with the Hepsia CP, you'll be able to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your websites. All 3 accelerators are incorporated within our packages by default and come with dedicated memory of several hundred megabytes. Node.js is employed to create scalable applications where real-time interaction is required - booking sites, online flash games, chats, and so on. It processes the data in small bits as the user is entering it, thus it operates quicker than other platforms that wait for the users to submit one massive piece of information. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator that functions as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it in case the same website visitor opens the same website again, which could speed any Internet site several times since Varnish works faster than any server. Memcached is employed for caching API and database responses, so it is appropriate for script-driven websites such as WordPress and Joomla™
. This web accelerator can easily decrease the load on your server as it will lower the number of database queries that your sites make.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Web Hosting
If you select Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel for your new dedicated server, you'll have Memcached, Varnish and Node.js available for increasing the speed of your Internet sites. Memcached can lessen the load on the hosting server by lowering the queries your script-driven Internet sites make as it caches database responses. This web accelerator is great for dynamic Internet sites built with WordPress, Joomla™
and similar scripts. Varnish, which is referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy, caches whole sites the first time a new visitor opens them. It could be employed to accelerate any type of site as it provides the cached content way quicker than the hosting server each time a guest opens the same page again. You could employ Node.js for online programs which call for real-time server-client interaction including online chats or booking Internet sites. In contrast to other platforms that wait for the user to fill everything on a form, Node.js processes the information little by little as the user fills each box, so it functions much faster and more efficiently. All dedicated server
solutions include several gigabytes of memory dedicated to those 3 web accelerators.
