A web accelerator is an application which speeds up a site, typically by caching its content. There are various sorts of accelerators, but in the common case this kind of apps cache static content or database responses and supply them in lieu of the web server, thus increasing the performance of a site considerably. The latter can be done because accelerator applications work faster than a server and not only will a website work better, but the server load shall also minimize, which will allow you to run heavy sites with less resources. We offer 3 web accelerators with our hosting plans, which will enable you to increase the speed of any sort of website. In comparison, most web hosting firms don't provide any web accelerators or offer just one, which limits your choice of web applications in the event that you'd like to employ such software.
Web Accelerators in Shared Hosting
We provide three of the most well-known web accelerators together with our shared hosting solutions and based upon what plan you shall pick when you sign up, they might already be available or they could be an optional upgrade. Varnish is the most widely used one of them and it could be employed for any type of website. It caches the pages the first time a site visitor opens them and provides them at a faster speed compared to the web server each and every time that a website visitor opens them again. Memcached is used to cache API and database calls, so it could increase the speed of dynamic Internet sites like online stores, forums or social networks. Node.js is employed for scalable web applications and it operates in real-time, which makes it perfect for server-side data processing - chats, browser games, booking portals, and so forth. You will be able to pick what amount of memory these accelerators will use and how many instances of each one shall run from your Hepsia website hosting CP.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers
In the event that you acquire a dedicated server from our firm and you select Hepsia as the hosting CP, you shall be able to employ Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your websites. All plans come with several gigabytes of memory dedicated to those accelerators and the actual amount depends on the package deal you choose. Node.js is used for scalable online programs such as browser games or hotel booking and it processes the info right away as the client enters it, which makes it considerably quicker than similar platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you employ it for a script-driven website, not only will the Internet site work faster, but also the load on the hosting server will decline since there will be considerably less database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it's not limited to databases. Instead, it caches whole web pages once a website visitor opens them and delivers them instead of the web server whenever the same visitor opens them later on. Since Varnish processes web requests considerably faster than any hosting server, the efficiency of a site using this accelerator could increase around 300%.
