A web accelerator is a software that speeds up an Internet site, typically by caching its content. There are many kinds of accelerators, but in the typical case this kind of programs cache static content or database responses and deliver them in place of the web server, hence enhancing the performance of an Internet site greatly. The latter is achievable because accelerator applications work faster than a hosting server and not only will an Internet site function better, but the server load will also minimize, which will enable you to run heavy Internet sites with less system resources. We provide three web accelerators with our hosting packages, which will permit you to speed up any sort of site. In comparison, most web hosting firms do not provide any web accelerators or offer only 1, which limits your choice of web apps if you would like to employ such software.
Web Accelerators in Website Hosting
When you host your sites within a website hosting account from our company, you will have three popular web accelerators to pick from if you'd like to improve the sites' functionality. Memcached is employed for database-driven websites and it caches the calls and requests between a website and its database, so it can easily minimize the load of such sites substantially. Varnish caches entire webpages the first time a site visitor opens them and provides them from there on if the same visitor opens them again. It does that faster than the web server, so it can boost the loading speed of any site up to 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time applications which operates on the server and not inside the visitor's web browser. It is used for holiday accommodation booking, chats and other apps where loads of data should be processed in real time. The availability of the accelerators depends upon the hosting plan that you choose - they could come by default or as an upgrade. In each case, you will be able to include more instances or more memory for each of them.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server packages will enable 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, so it can boost any script-driven site. You could use it for any site built with WordPress or Joomla, for instance. Varnish is also referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy and it is a general-purpose caching platform that can be used for any type of websites. With regards to the content, it may increase the performance of a site close to 300%. Node.js is a sophisticated system used to create scalable Internet apps which process information in real time for example booking portals. Its advantage is that unlike comparable platforms, it processes data continuously and in small parts as opposed to waiting for the user to submit one large chunk of data. The accelerators could be enabled for any Internet site via the Hepsia CP and you'll be able to pick how many instances of every one of them will work and how much memory they shall use.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers
If you select Hepsia as the hosting CP for your new dedicated server, you shall have Memcached, Varnish and Node.js readily available for increasing the speed of your Internet sites. Memcached can decrease the load on the hosting server by lowering the queries your script-driven sites make as it caches database responses. This web accelerator is great for dynamic websites developed with WordPress, Joomla and very similar scripts. Varnish, which is referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy, caches entire sites the first time a new visitor opens them. It could be used to speed up any kind of website since it provides the cached content way quicker than the web server any time a customer opens the same page again. You could use Node.js for online apps which call for real-time server-client interaction such as online chats or booking websites. In contrast to other platforms which wait for the user to fill everything on a form, Node.js processes the info bit by bit as the user fills each box, so it operates considerably quicker and more efficiently. All dedicated server solutions include several gigabytes of memory dedicated to these 3 web accelerators.
