A web accelerator is a software application which speeds up an Internet site generally by caching content and providing it instead of the server. Such programs can be employed for both static and dynamic websites because there are a variety of accelerators which can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The best thing about using a web accelerator is that a given site will perform significantly faster without employing extra system resources. On the contrary, such a site will demand much less resources to operate as the web accelerator will tackle most requests rather than the server. Unlike many firms that don't offer web accelerators with their solutions or offer one, we offer 3 different ones that'll permit you to speed up your sites irrespective of their type or content.

Web Accelerators in Shared Web Hosting

We provide 3 of the most popular web accelerators with our shared web hosting packages and based on what plan you'll select when you sign up, they might already be available or they could be an optional upgrade. Varnish is the most popular one of them and it can be used for any kind of site. It caches the pages the first time a visitor opens them and provides them at a much 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 can easily boost the speed of dynamic Internet sites such as online stores, community forums or social networks. Node.js is employed for scalable web applications and it operates in real-time, which makes it suitable for server-side data processing - chats, browser games, booking portals, etc. You shall be able to pick how much memory these accelerators shall employ and how many instances of each will run from your Hepsia website 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 depending on the nature of the website content. Memcached, for example, caches database requests, therefore it's an excellent choice for any script app like WordPress or Joomla. That way, the database hosting server will not need to process exactly the same request if a number of users open a webpage with the same content. Varnish is similar, but it is a general-purpose accelerator because it caches any kind of content the first time a guest opens a page. If this page is opened again by the same website visitor, it shall be delivered by Varnish at a greater speed compared to the server. Using this web accelerator can lessen the load created by your Internet sites tremendously. Last, but not least, Node.js shall permit you to build scalable web programs such as hotel booking sites or chats. Its advantage over very similar platforms is that it doesn't wait for a user to submit a big piece of information, but processes whatever the client is entering in real-time. The 3 web accelerators are available in the Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to choose how many instances of each one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they can use.

Web Accelerators in VPS Servers

If you obtain a VPS server with the Hepsia CP, you will be able to employ Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your Internet sites. All 3 accelerators are integrated within our packages by default and come with dedicated memory of a few hundred MBs. Node.js is employed to develop scalable programs where real-time interaction is needed - booking websites, online flash games, chats, and so forth. It processes the info in small bits as the user is entering it, as a result it works more quickly than other platforms that wait for the users to enter one large bit of data. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator that functions as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it in case the same visitor opens the same page again, which could speed any Internet site several times because Varnish operates a lot quicker than any hosting server. Memcached is used for caching API and database responses, so it's suitable for script-driven Internet sites such as WordPress and Joomla. This web accelerator can reduce the load on your web server as it'll decrease the number of database queries that your sites make.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

Memcached, Node.js and Varnish are available by default with all our dedicated servers which are ordered with Hepsia as the web hosting Control Panel. These 3 web accelerators feature several gbs of dedicated memory and you could use them to speed up any sort of site. Memcached can substantially reduce the load on the web server if you have script-driven Internet sites since it caches database responses, thus it minimizes the amount of database queries which the web server has to deal with. Node.js shall allow you to build scalable programs with real-time user-server interaction including chats or dining booking sites. Its advantage over comparable platforms is that it processes info the moment the user enters it, so all the info is managed quicker and in small bits. Varnish caches whole pages the first time a website visitor opens them and delivers them each time the same guest opens them again, which makes it a universal accelerator for any sort of sites. As it functions quicker than any hosting server, it can easily speed up a website at least several times and due to this fact, Varnish is amongst the most widely used web accelerators on the market.
