A web accelerator is a server-side program that speeds up an Internet site. Such a piece of software could function in different ways depending on the site content, but in the typical situation all such programs cache content and deliver it instead of the server. That is valid for both dynamic and static Internet sites because the cached content could be simple text or database responses and the benefit of using a web accelerator is not only the faster loading website, but also the decreased overall load on the server. This way, you'll be able to employ a lower-end hosting plan that will also cost less while your site visitors will be able to still enjoy high browsing speeds. Handful of firms supply web accelerators with their hosting packages and they frequently offer just one, while we offer three different ones that'll enable you to enhance the performance of any sort of website substantially.

Web Accelerators in Cloud Hosting

In case you host your sites within a cloud hosting account from our firm, you will have 3 popular web accelerators to pick from if you'd like to enhance the sites' efficiency. Memcached is employed for database-driven Internet sites and it caches the calls and requests between a site and its database, so it can easily decrease the load of such Internet sites drastically. Varnish caches whole web pages the first time a website visitor opens them and delivers them from there on if the same site visitor opens them again. It does that much more quickly than the hosting server, so it can increase the loading speed of any site up to 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time applications that functions on the hosting server and not within the visitor's browser. It's used for accommodation booking, chats and other apps where plenty of data needs to be processed in real time. The availability of those accelerators depends on the hosting plan that you select - they could come by default or as an upgrade. In both cases, you'll be able to add more instances or more memory for each of them.

Web Accelerators in VPS Hosting

In the event that you get a virtual private server with the Hepsia CP, you'll be able to employ Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your Internet sites. All three accelerators are incorporated in our solutions by default and feature dedicated memory of a few hundred MBs. Node.js is employed to create scalable applications where real-time interaction is needed - booking Internet sites, online flash games, chats, etcetera. It processes the data in little parts as the end user is entering it, thus it works quicker than other platforms which wait for the end users to submit one big bit of data. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator which functions as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it when the same website visitor opens the same page again, which can certainly speed any website several times since Varnish operates a lot quicker than any server. Memcached is used for caching API and database responses, consequently it is appropriate for script-driven Internet sites like WordPress and Joomla. This web accelerator can easily decrease the load on your hosting server as it shall decrease the number of database queries which your sites make.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Web Hosting

In case you pick Hepsia as the hosting CP for your new dedicated server, you'll have Memcached, Varnish and Node.js available for increasing the speed of your sites. Memcached will be able to decrease the load on the hosting server by lowering the queries your script-driven websites make since it caches database responses. This web accelerator is good for dynamic websites developed with WordPress, Joomla and very similar scripts. Varnish, which is known as an HTTP reverse proxy, caches entire websites the first time a new visitor opens them. It could be employed to speed up any sort of website since it delivers the cached content much faster than the web server each time a website visitor opens the same page again. You could use Node.js for online apps that require real-time server-client interaction including online chats or booking Internet sites. In contrast to other platforms that await the user to enter everything on a form, Node.js processes the data gradually as the user fills every box, so it works much faster and more efficiently. All dedicated server packages feature several gigabytes of memory dedicated to these 3 web accelerators.
