A web accelerator is a piece of software which accelerates a website generally by caching content and supplying it instead of the hosting server. Such programs could be used for both dynamic and static websites because there are various accelerators that can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The best thing about employing a web accelerator is that a given site shall perform significantly faster without using additional system resources. Just the opposite, such a site will require significantly less resources to work since the web accelerator will handle most requests rather than the web server. In contrast to many businesses that do not offer web accelerators with their solutions or offer only one, we offer three different ones which will enable you to speed up your Internet sites regardless of their kind or content.

Web Accelerators in Shared Hosting

Our shared hosting solutions include three web accelerators which you could use depending on the sites which you would like to run. Memcached is employed to cache database or API calls and responses, which can tremendously improve the efficiency of dynamic sites. Varnish is a popular HTTP accelerator which caches pages and provides them to the site visitors way quicker than the hosting server after the first time they open them. Node.js is an event-driven platform employed for scalable real-time apps including booking sites. Based on the web hosting package you pick, these 3 apps may already be included or might be optional upgrades. Either way, you will be able to select how many instances of each one of them will be at your disposal and how much memory they ought to employ. These accelerators are provided only by several Internet hosting providers, including ours, and they could increase the speed of your web programs significantly.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

You shall be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the sites hosted within your semi-dedicated server account based on the nature of the website content. Memcached, for instance, caches database requests, so it is a great option for any script program such as WordPress or Joomla. That way, the database web server shall not have to process exactly the same request if multiple users open a website 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 page. In case that webpage is opened again by the same website visitor, it'll be delivered by Varnish at a greater speed compared to the server. Using this web accelerator shall reduce the load generated by your websites drastically. Last, but not least, Node.js shall enable you to build scalable web programs like hotel booking websites or chats. Its advantage over similar platforms is that it doesn't wait for a client to submit a big piece of info, but processes whatever the customer is inputting in real-time. The three web accelerators are available in the Hepsia Control Panel and you'll be able to choose how many instances of each one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they'll employ.

Web Accelerators in VPS Servers

All VPS servers that are incorporated with the Hepsia Control Panel come with Varnish, Memcached and Node.js already included and you'll have several hundred MBs of dedicated memory for them by default. Varnish, that is also known as an HTTP reverse proxy, caches web pages the first time a guest opens them and delivers them if that guest opens them again, therefore the web server will not have to perform any action. Because Varnish operates considerably faster than any hosting server, a site using this accelerator will operate several times swifter. Memcached is a platform which caches database calls and responses and it's employed for WordPress, Joomla and other script-driven applications that store their content within a database. Node.js is a powerful platform for building scalable web apps. Any info on an Internet site that uses Node.js is processed right away, making it a great choice for dining and accommodation booking Internet sites, web-based chats, web browser games, etcetera.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

In case you buy a dedicated server from our firm and you opt for Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel, you shall be able to employ Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your Internet sites. All plans feature several gigabytes of memory dedicated to these accelerators and the specific amount depends on the plan that you select. Node.js is used for scalable online programs including browser games or hotel booking and it processes the information right away as the client enters it, which makes it much faster than similar platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you employ it for a script-driven site, not only will the website work faster, but also the load on the web server will reduce because there will be fewer database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it isn't limited to databases. Rather, it caches whole web pages once a visitor opens them and provides them instead of the web server each and every time the same visitor opens them afterwards. Since Varnish processes web requests faster than any hosting server, the performance of a website using this accelerator can increase as much as 300%.
