A web accelerator is a piece of software that accelerates a site generally by caching content and supplying it instead of the hosting server. Such apps could be employed for both static and dynamic sites as there are different accelerators that can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The benefit of using a web accelerator is that a given site will perform considerably faster without employing more resources. Quite the opposite, this type of a website will need significantly less resources to work since the web accelerator will handle most requests rather than the web server. In contrast to many companies which do not offer web accelerators with their packages or offer just one, we offer three different ones that will enable you to speed up your websites regardless of their style or content.

Web Accelerators in Shared Web Hosting

If you get one of our shared web hosting solutions, you will have 3 widely used web accelerators at your disposal and you'll be able to access them directly using the Hepsia CP which is included with our plans. Varnish is one of the most well-known ones and it can greatly accelerate any Internet site as it caches the pages a visitor opens for the first time and delivers them each time that guest opens them again. Given that Varnish works much faster than any web server, the loading speed of any website using the accelerator shall improve considerably. Memcached is employed to cache database and API calls and responses between a site visitor and a web server, so it is comparable to Varnish, but is employed primarily for database-driven sites. Since the site shall connect to its database much less, the overall web server load shall be minimized considerably. The last accelerator, Node.js, is employed for scalable online programs like chats and booking sites as it processes info in real time the moment it is entered on the site by the users. Based on the package you select, these accelerators could be available or could be an optional upgrade.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

The Hepsia Control Panel that comes with our semi-dedicated server packages will permit you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your Internet sites. Memcached is one of the most widely used accelerators since it can effortlessly speed up any API or database-driven website by caching requests and responses, thus the web server shall not have to process identical requests time after time. The platform is ideal for Internet sites created with programs such as Joomla, Mambo or WordPress. Varnish is an effective accelerator that caches any type of content and is also frequently called an HTTP reverse proxy. It caches 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 speed up an Internet site several times as it delivers content quicker than any web server. Node.js is a platform used for scalable real-time apps such as chats, web browser games or social networks. It processes data in small parts as soon as a user types anything, so it functions faster than similar platforms in which users submit large pieces of information 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 Control Panel.

Web Accelerators in VPS Servers

In case you obtain a VPS server with the Hepsia CP, you shall be able to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your sites. All three accelerators are incorporated within our solutions by default and offer dedicated memory of a few hundred megabytes. Node.js is employed to develop scalable programs where real-time interaction is needed - booking Internet sites, online games, chats, etc. It processes the information in small portions as the end user is entering it, thus it operates faster than other platforms that wait for the users to submit one sizeable part of data. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator that works as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it in case the same visitor opens the same page again, which can easily speed any website several times because Varnish operates more quickly than any hosting server. Memcached is used for caching API and database responses, so it is ideal for script-driven sites such as WordPress and Joomla. This web accelerator can easily decrease the load on your hosting server as it shall reduce the amount of database queries your Internet sites make.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

Memcached, Varnish and Node.js come with all dedicated servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and depending on the plan which you select, you'll also have several gbs of dedicated memory for them. Memcached can reduce the server load by lowering the number of queries that have to be addressed because it caches database calls and responses. You'll be able to use it on any website that uses an API or a database - for example, any site built with WordPress or Joomla. Varnish can easily boost the performance of any sort of website by caching whole pages the first time a guest opens them. The accelerator delivers the pages if the very same visitor opens them later on and given that it does that considerably quicker than the hosting server, the website visitor will be able to surf your website at least a couple of times faster. This is why Varnish is sometimes called an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is a sophisticated platform that will enable you to develop booking sites, web chats and other applications where real-time server-user interaction is necessary. It processes the info in small portions as the user fills different boxes and doesn't wait for all boxes to be filled and processed as one substantial chunk of information, which makes Node.js much faster than similar programs.
