A web accelerator is a server-side application which speeds up a site. Such a piece of software could function in different ways based on the website content, but in the typical case all such applications cache content and deliver it instead of the web server. This is valid for both dynamic and static Internet sites because the cached content could be simple text or database responses and the advantage of employing a web accelerator is not only the faster loading Internet site, but also the smaller overall load on the web server. This way, you can use a lower-end hosting package that will also cost less while your website visitors could still enjoy superior browsing speeds. Several businesses offer web accelerators with their hosting packages and they often offer only one, while we offer 3 different ones that'll permit you to enhance the performance of any sort of Internet site tremendously.

Web Accelerators in Web Hosting

We offer 3 of the most well-known web accelerators with our web hosting packages and based on what plan you shall choose when you sign up, they may already be available or they might be an optional upgrade. Varnish is the most popular one of them and it could be used for any kind 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 web server each 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 like online stores, forums or social networks. Node.js is employed for scalable web apps and it functions in real-time, which makes it ideal for server-side data processing - chats, browser games, booking portals, etcetera. You'll be able to choose what amount of memory these accelerators shall use and how many instances of each will run from your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You shall be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the websites hosted within your semi-dedicated hosting account depending on the nature of the site content. Memcached, for instance, caches database requests, therefore it is an excellent option for any script application like WordPress or Joomla. That way, the database hosting server will not have to process the very same request if multiple users open a site with the same content. Varnish is comparable, but it is a general-purpose accelerator as it caches any type of content the first time a guest opens an Internet site. If this webpage is opened again by the exact same website visitor, it shall be delivered by Varnish at a much higher speed compared to the hosting server. Employing this web accelerator shall reduce the load created by your sites significantly. Last, but not least, Node.js will permit you to create scalable web apps like hotel booking Internet sites or chats. Its advantage over comparable platforms is that it does not wait for a client to submit a large piece of information, but processes whatever the user is entering in real-time. The 3 web accelerators are available within 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 may employ.

Web Accelerators in VPS

In the event that you obtain a virtual private server with the Hepsia CP, you'll be able to employ Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your Internet sites. All 3 accelerators are incorporated within our plans by default and offer dedicated memory of several hundred megabytes. Node.js is used to build scalable programs where real-time interaction is required - booking Internet sites, online flash games, chats, etc. It processes the data in small bits as the end user is entering it, as a result it works much faster than other platforms which wait for the end users to enter one sizeable bit of data. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator that functions as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it if the same site visitor opens the same webpage again, which can easily speed any website several times since Varnish operates a lot quicker than any server. Memcached is employed for caching API and database responses, consequently it's appropriate for script-driven Internet sites such as WordPress and Joomla. This web accelerator can easily decrease the load on your server since it shall reduce the number of database queries your sites make.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Hosting

If you obtain a dedicated server from our firm and you opt for Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel, you will be able to use Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your sites. All solutions include several gigabytes of memory dedicated to these accelerators and the specific amount depends on the package deal that you select. Node.js is employed for scalable online applications including browser games or hotel booking and it processes the data in real time as the client enters it, which makes it considerably faster than comparable platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you employ it for a script-driven Internet site, not simply will the Internet site work faster, but also the load on the hosting server will decrease since there will be less database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it isn't limited to databases. Rather, it caches entire webpages once a visitor opens them and provides them instead of the web server each and every time the same visitor opens them later. Due to the fact that Varnish processes web requests much faster than any server, the overall performance of a website using this accelerator may increase as much as 300%.
