A web accelerator is an application which speeds up an Internet site, normally by caching its content. There are various kinds of accelerators, but in the typical case such programs cache static content or database responses and provide them in lieu of the hosting server, as a consequence boosting the performance of a website greatly. The latter is achievable because accelerator applications work faster than a web server and not only will an Internet site work better, but the server load will also decrease, which will allow you to run heavy websites with less resources. We provide 3 web accelerators with our hosting packages, which will allow you to accelerate any sort of site. In comparison, most Internet hosting businesses don't offer any web accelerators or offer only one, which limits your choice of web applications in case you want to employ this kind of software.

Web Accelerators in Website Hosting

We provide 3 of the most popular web accelerators together with our website hosting services and depending on what plan you'll pick when you sign up, they could already be available or they might be an optional upgrade. Varnish is the most widely used one of them and it can be employed for any sort of site. It caches the web pages the first time a site visitor opens them and provides them at a faster speed compared to the server every time that a visitor opens them again. Memcached is employed to cache API and database calls, so it can easily boost the speed of dynamic websites like online stores, forums or social networks. Node.js is used 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 on. You will be able to choose the amount of memory these accelerators will employ and how many instances of each shall run from your Hepsia web hosting CP.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

The Hepsia CP that comes with our semi-dedicated server plans shall enable you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your websites. Memcached is one of the most famous accelerators as it can increase the speed of any API or database-driven Internet site by caching requests and responses, consequently the server won't need to process identical requests again and again. The platform is ideal for websites designed with applications such as Joomla, Mambo or WordPress. Varnish is a powerful accelerator that caches any sort of content and is also known as an HTTP reverse proxy. It caches web pages that are opened by a website visitor for the first time and provides them each time that same site visitor opens them again. Varnish can easily accelerate a site several times since it delivers content quicker than any hosting server. Node.js is a platform employed for scalable real-time programs such as chats, web browser games or social networks. It processes info in smaller pieces as soon as a user types anything, so it works considerably faster than similar platforms in which users submit massive portions of info that need time to be processed. You'll be able to pick the number of instances and the dedicated memory for each and every one of the 3 accelerators through your CP.

Web Accelerators in VPS Servers

We offer Memcached, Node.js and Varnish with all VPS servers which are purchased with the Hepsia Control Panel. Your server will also include a few hundred MBs of dedicated memory for these accelerators and the particular amount would depend on the package that you choose. Memcached is used for script-driven Internet sites since it caches database responses, consequently reducing the amount of queries a script sends to its database. It could be employed for any script such as WordPress or Joomla. Node.js is a highly effective platform for developing web apps including booking sites and chats. The real-time interaction between users and a hosting server is carried out by processing smaller pieces of information as soon any user inputs anything on the website. In comparison, other platforms await customers to enter loads of information before they process it, consequently they work more slowly. Varnish is a multi-purpose accelerator that caches entire webpages and provides them instead of the web server at a considerably faster rate. It's also known as an HTTP reverse proxy and it can easily speed up any sort of website.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

In the event that you order a dedicated server from us and you choose Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel, you will be able to use Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your websites. All solutions feature several gigabytes of memory dedicated to those accelerators and the exact amount depends on the plan that you select. Node.js is employed for scalable online apps such as browser games or hotel booking and it processes the info immediately as the user enters it, which makes it considerably faster than very similar platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you use it for a script-driven Internet site, not only will the Internet site work faster, but also the load on the hosting server will minimize since there shall be considerably less database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it is not limited to databases. Rather, it caches entire pages once a guest opens them and delivers them instead of the server each time the same visitor opens them later on. Due to the fact that Varnish processes web requests much faster than any server, the overall performance of an Internet site using this accelerator could increase nearly 300%.
