A web accelerator is a software application that accelerates a website usually by caching content and providing it instead of the web server. Such apps can be employed for both static and dynamic Internet sites as there are a variety of accelerators that can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The advantage of using a web accelerator is that a given website shall perform substantially faster without using extra system resources. Quite the opposite, such a website will need a lesser amount of resources to work as the web accelerator will take care of most requests instead of the web server. Unlike many firms that don't offer web accelerators with their plans or offer one, we offer three different ones that'll permit you to speed up your Internet sites whatever their style or content.

Web Accelerators in Shared Web Hosting

If you get one of our shared web hosting packages, you'll have three well-known web accelerators at your disposal and you will be able to access them directly via the Hepsia CP that is included with our packages. Varnish is one of the most popular ones and it can tremendously speed up any site as it caches the pages a site visitor opens for the first time and provides them every time that website visitor opens them again. Given that Varnish operates noticeably faster than any hosting server, the loading speed of any website using the accelerator will increase significantly. Memcached is employed to cache database and API calls and responses between an Internet site visitor and a hosting server, so it is comparable to Varnish, but is employed predominantly for database-driven Internet sites. Because the website will connect to its database significantly less, the overall hosting server load shall be decreased significantly. The third accelerator, Node.js, is used for scalable online apps such as chats and booking sites since it processes information in real time the instant it is entered on the website by the users. Depending on the plan you pick, these accelerators may be available or could be an optional upgrade.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

The Hepsia CP that is included with our semi-dedicated server solutions shall enable you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your websites. Memcached is one of the most widely used accelerators because it can effortlessly accelerate any API or database-driven site by caching requests and responses, as a result the hosting server won't need to process identical requests again and again. The platform is perfect for Internet sites developed with applications such as Joomla, Mambo or WordPress. Varnish is an effective accelerator which caches any type of content and is also known as an HTTP reverse proxy. It caches web pages that are opened by a visitor for the first time and delivers them every time that very same site visitor opens them again. Varnish can speed up a site several times simply because it delivers content faster than any hosting server. Node.js is a platform employed for scalable real-time apps such as chats, browser games or social networks. It processes information in little pieces the moment a user types something, as a result it operates much faster than similar platforms where users submit large pieces of data that require time to be processed. You could choose the number of instances and the dedicated memory for each of the three accelerators through your Control Panel.

Web Accelerators in VPS Servers

If you obtain a VPS server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you shall be able to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your sites. All 3 accelerators are incorporated within our plans by default and feature dedicated memory of several hundred MBs. Node.js is used to build scalable programs where real-time interaction is necessary - booking sites, online games, chats, and so forth. It processes the info in smaller pieces as the end user is entering it, therefore it works more quickly than other platforms which wait for the users to enter one big bit of information. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator which operates as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it in the event that the same visitor opens the same webpage again, which can easily speed any site several times due to the fact that Varnish functions a lot quicker than any web server. Memcached is used for caching API and database responses, so it is ideal for script-driven websites like WordPress and Joomla. This web accelerator can lessen the load on your hosting server since it shall lower the amount of database queries which your Internet sites make.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

If you buy a dedicated server from our company and you choose Hepsia as the hosting CP, you'll be able to use Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your websites. All packages come with several gigabytes of memory dedicated to those accelerators and the actual amount depends on the package you select. Node.js is employed for scalable online applications like browser games or hotel booking and it processes the info immediately as the user enters it, which makes it considerably faster than similar platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you employ it for a script-driven Internet site, not only will the site work faster, but also the load on the hosting server will decline because there shall be a lesser amount of database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it's not limited to databases. Rather, it caches entire pages once a guest opens them and provides them instead of the hosting server each time the same visitor opens them later on. Due to the fact that Varnish processes web requests considerably faster than any web server, the efficiency of a website using this accelerator may increase nearly 300%.
