A web accelerator is a piece of software which speeds up a site usually by caching content and delivering it instead of the hosting server. Such applications can be used for both dynamic and static websites because there are various accelerators that can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The main advantage of using a web accelerator is that a given site shall perform substantially faster without using additional resources. On the contrary, this kind of a site will demand a lesser amount of resources to operate because the web accelerator will handle most requests instead of the hosting server. In contrast to many companies that do not offer web accelerators with their solutions or offer only one, we offer three different ones that will enable you to speed up your sites whatever their type or content.
Web Accelerators in Shared Hosting
Our shared hosting packages feature three web accelerators which you could employ depending on the sites that you'd like to run. Memcached is used to cache database or API calls and responses, which can significantly boost the functionality of dynamic Internet sites. Varnish is a popular HTTP accelerator which caches web pages and provides them to the visitors much quicker than the web server after the first time they open them. Node.js is an event-driven platform used for scalable real-time programs for example booking websites. Based on the Internet hosting package you pick, these 3 applications could already be included or may be optional upgrades. Either way, you shall be able to select how many instances of every one of them shall be at your disposal and what amount of memory they should employ. These accelerators are offered only by a few Internet hosting providers, including ours, and they could boost the speed of your web applications considerably.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers
You shall be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the sites hosted in your semi-dedicated server account based on the nature of the site content. Memcached, for example, caches database requests, so it is a great choice for any script program like WordPress or Joomla. That way, the database hosting server will not have to process the same request if a number of users open a site with the same content. Varnish is very similar, but it is a general-purpose accelerator because it caches any sort of content the first time a website visitor opens a site. In case this page is opened again by the very same website visitor, it will be delivered by Varnish at a much better speed compared to the server. Employing this web accelerator can decrease the load created by your sites drastically. Last, but not least, Node.js shall allow you to create scalable web apps like hotel booking Internet sites or chats. Its advantage over similar platforms is that it doesn't wait for a customer to submit a sizable piece of data, but processes whatever the customer is entering in real-time. The 3 web accelerators are available in the Hepsia Control Panel and you shall be able to select how many instances of each and every one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they'll use.
Web Accelerators in VPS Servers
All VPS servers which are integrated with the Hepsia Control Panel come with Varnish, Memcached and Node.js already included and you shall get several hundred MBs of dedicated memory for them by default. Varnish, that's also known as an HTTP reverse proxy, caches webpages the first time a visitor opens them and delivers them when that visitor opens them again, hence the hosting server will not have to perform any action. Since Varnish works much quicker than any web server, an Internet site using this accelerator will function several times swifter. Memcached is a platform which caches database calls and responses and it's employed for WordPress, Joomla and other script-driven applications which store their content within a database. Node.js is a powerful platform for creating scalable web apps. Any information on a site that employs Node.js is processed right away, which makes it a fantastic choice for dining and accommodation booking sites, web-based chats, browser games, etc.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers
Memcached, Node.js and Varnish are available by default with all of our dedicated servers that are ordered with Hepsia as the website hosting Control Panel. These 3 web accelerators feature several gigabytes of dedicated memory and you could employ them to speed up any type of Internet site. Memcached can significantly minimize the load on the hosting server if you have script-driven Internet sites since it caches database responses, thus it minimizes the number of database queries that the web server has to handle. Node.js shall enable you to build scalable programs with real-time user-server interaction including chats or dining booking Internet sites. Its advantage over similar platforms is that it processes information the instant the user enters it, so all the information is managed swifter and in small portions. Varnish caches whole pages the first time a site visitor opens them and delivers them each time the same guest opens them again, that makes it a universal accelerator for any sort of Internet sites. Because it works faster than any web server, it can easily speed up a website at least several times and because of this, Varnish is amongst the most widely used web accelerators around.
