Just what do web accelerators do? What could you do in order to boost your website's load speed?
A web accelerator is a software that accelerates a website, typically by caching its content. There are many sorts of accelerators, but in the typical case this sort of programs cache static content or database responses and provide them instead of the server, thus boosting the performance of an Internet site noticeably. The latter is achievable because accelerator programs work faster than a web server and not simply will a site operate better, but the server load shall also minimize, which will allow you to run heavy websites with less resources. We provide 3 web accelerators with our hosting packages, which will enable you to speed up any sort of website. In comparison, most website hosting providers do not offer any web accelerators or provide only 1, which limits your choice of web apps in the event that you want to employ such software.

The platform is suitable for Internet sites developed with programs like Joomla™, Mambo or WordPress. Varnish is a powerful accelerator which caches any type of content and is also known as an HTTP reverse proxy. It caches web pages which are opened by a website visitor for the first time and delivers them each and every time that same site visitor opens them again. Varnish can certainly accelerate a website several times because it delivers content quicker than any web server. Node.js is a platform used for scalable real-time applications like chats, Internet browser games or social networks. It processes information in small pieces the moment a user enters something, as a result it functions much faster than similar platforms in which users submit large portions of info that require time to be processed. You could choose the number of instances and the dedicated memory for every one of the three accelerators through your CP.
- Web Accelerators in VPS ServersAll VPS servers that are set up with the Hepsia Control Panel come with Varnish, Memcached and Node.js already included and you'll receive several hundred MBs of dedicated memory for them by default.

As Varnish works considerably faster than any server, a website employing this accelerator shall operate several times quicker. Memcached is a platform that caches database calls and responses and it is used for WordPress, Joomla™ and other script-driven applications which store their content inside a database. Node.js is an efficient platform for creating scalable web programs. Any data on a site that employs Node.js is processed right away, which makes it a superb choice for dining and accommodation booking sites, web-based chats, web browser games, etc.

Memcached can reduce the hosting server load by lowering the number of queries that need to be taken care of as it caches database calls and responses. You'll be able to use it on every Internet site that uses an API or a database - as an example, any site built with WordPress or Joomla™. Varnish can easily improve the performance of any sort of Internet site by caching whole webpages the first time a visitor opens them.

That's why Varnish is sometimes categorised as an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is an advanced platform that will allow you to build booking websites, web chats and other applications where real-time server-user interaction is required.
