A web accelerator is a server-side app which speeds up an Internet site. Such a piece of software may work in different ways depending on the website content, but in the typical situation all such applications cache content and deliver it instead of the hosting server. That's valid for both dynamic and static Internet sites as the cached content could be simple text or database responses and the reward of using a web accelerator is not just the faster loading website, but also the minimized overall load on the machine. This way, you can employ a lower-end hosting package that will also cost less while your site visitors will be able to still enjoy superior browsing speeds. Handful of firms offer web accelerators with their hosting plans and they often offer just one, while we offer 3 different ones that will enable you to enhance the performance of any sort of site significantly.

Web Accelerators in Shared Hosting

Our shared hosting plans come with three web accelerators which you will be able to employ depending on the Internet sites which you'd like to run. Memcached is used to cache database or API calls and responses, which can greatly enhance the efficiency of dynamic sites. Varnish is a popular HTTP accelerator that caches web pages and delivers them to the site visitors faster than the server after the first time they open them. Node.js is an event-driven platform employed for scalable real-time applications including booking websites. Depending upon the web hosting package you pick, these 3 programs might already be included or may be optional upgrades. Either way, you'll be able to choose how many instances of each one of them shall be at your disposal and how much memory they ought to use. These accelerators are provided only by several web hosting companies, including ours, and they could increase the speed of your web apps substantially.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you go for one of our semi-dedicated server solutions, you'll be able to work with Varnish, Memcached and Node.js - 3 powerful web accelerators. Varnish is a multi-purpose app which caches webpages the first time a website visitor opens them and delivers them instead of the web server if the guest opens them again up to 300% more quickly. Memcached caches API and database calls and responses so the web server doesn't have to process each and every request, which makes it suitable for database-driven websites, for instance ones built with Joomla or WordPress. Node.js is employed to build web programs which operate in real-time like chats or accommodation booking portals and it processes each bit of info the instant the user enters it as opposed to waiting for big chunks of data to be accumulated. The Hepsia CP that is included with our semi-dedicated plans shall permit you to select how many instances of every accelerator shall work at a time and what amount of memory they will use.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

Memcached, Varnish and Node.js are available with all dedicated servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting CP and in accordance with the package which you pick, you will also have several gigabytes of dedicated memory for them. Memcached can reduce the server load by lowering the amount of queries that need to be addressed because it caches database calls and responses. You'll be able to use it on any website that uses an API or a database - for example, any site designed with WordPress or Joomla. Varnish can improve the performance of any type of website by caching whole webpages the first time a guest opens them. The accelerator provides the pages if the very same visitor opens them later on and because it does that much quicker than the server, the website visitor will be able to surf your site at least a couple of times faster. For this reason Varnish is often referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is a sophisticated platform that'll enable you to build booking websites, web chats and other programs where real-time server-user interaction is needed. It processes the data in little bits as the user fills different boxes and doesn't wait for all boxes to be filled and processed as one big chunk of data, which makes Node.js considerably faster than similar programs.
