A web accelerator is a software program which accelerates a website generally by caching content and supplying it instead of the web server. Such applications may be used for both static and dynamic sites because there are different accelerators that can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The main advantage of using a web accelerator is that a given Internet site shall perform considerably faster without using extra system resources. Just the opposite, this type of a website will demand significantly less resources to work because the web accelerator will deal with most requests instead of the server. In contrast to many companies which do not offer web accelerators with their solutions or offer one, we offer three different ones that'll enable you to speed up your sites whatever their kind or content.

Web Accelerators in Hosting

We provide three of the most well-known web accelerators with our hosting packages and based on what plan you shall select when you sign up, they might already be available or they may be an optional upgrade. Varnish is the most well-known one of them and it may be used for any type of Internet site. It caches the pages the first time a website visitor opens them and provides them at a much faster speed compared to the server each time that a visitor opens them again. Memcached is used to cache API and database calls, so it could increase the speed of dynamic sites such as online stores, forums or social networks. Node.js is employed for scalable web apps and it operates in real-time, which makes it excellent for server-side data processing - chats, browser games, booking portals, etc. You shall be able to select how much memory these accelerators shall employ and how many instances of each and every one shall run from your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the sites hosted within your semi-dedicated server account in accordance with the nature of the website content. Memcached, in particular, caches database requests, therefore it is a superb choice for any script app such as WordPress or Joomla. This way, the database hosting server won't have to process the same request if multiple users open a webpage with the same content. Varnish is very similar, but it's a general-purpose accelerator since it caches any kind of content the first time a website visitor opens a site. In case this web page is opened again by the same guest, it will be provided by Varnish at a much better speed compared to the hosting server. Using this web accelerator will lessen the load created by your Internet sites substantially. Last, but not least, Node.js shall allow you to produce scalable web applications like hotel booking websites or chats. Its advantage over comparable platforms is that it doesn't wait for a customer to submit a large piece of information, but processes whatever the customer is typing in real-time. The 3 web accelerators are available inside the Hepsia CP and you'll be able to choose how many instances of each one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they may employ.

Web Accelerators in VPS Servers

All VPS servers which are set up with the Hepsia CP come with Varnish, Memcached and Node.js already included and you shall receive several hundred megabytes of dedicated memory for them by default. Varnish, that is also referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy, caches web pages the first time a site visitor opens them and provides them when that guest opens them again, therefore the hosting server will not need to perform any action. As Varnish operates much faster than any server, a website using this accelerator will work several times faster. Memcached is a platform that caches database calls and responses and it is employed for WordPress, Joomla and other script-driven apps that store their content inside a database. Node.js is a powerful platform for developing scalable web applications. Any info on a site which uses Node.js is processed instantly, making it a great choice for dining and accommodation booking sites, web-based chats, Internet browser games, and so forth.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

Memcached, Node.js and Varnish are available by default with all of our dedicated servers which are ordered with Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel. These three web accelerators offer several gigabytes of dedicated memory and you may use them to speed up any type of site. Memcached can drastically decrease the load on the hosting server if you have script-driven websites because it caches database responses, thus it minimizes the amount of database queries the hosting server has to tackle. Node.js shall permit you to create scalable programs with real-time user-server interaction including chats or dining booking Internet sites. Its advantage over very similar platforms is that it processes data the moment the end user enters it, so all the information is handled faster and in small bits. Varnish caches entire pages the first time a site visitor opens them and provides them every time the same guest opens them again, that makes it a universal accelerator for any kind of websites. Because it operates faster than any web server, it can speed up a site at least several times and because of this, Varnish is amongst the most popular web accelerators around.
