A web accelerator is a software application that accelerates a site usually by caching content and supplying it instead of the hosting server. Such apps could be used for both dynamic and static Internet sites since there are a variety of accelerators that can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The advantage of employing a web accelerator is that a given Internet site will perform substantially faster without using extra system resources. On the contrary, this kind of a website will demand a lesser amount of resources to work because the web accelerator will deal with most requests instead of the hosting server. Contrary to many firms which don't offer web accelerators with their packages or offer only 1, we offer 3 different ones that'll enable you to speed up your Internet sites whatever their kind or content.

Web Accelerators in Shared Website Hosting

We offer 3 of the most popular web accelerators together with our shared website hosting packages and based upon what plan you will pick when you sign up, they could already be available or they could be an optional upgrade. Varnish is the most well-known one of them and it can be used for any type of Internet site. It caches the pages the first time a site visitor opens them and delivers them at a faster speed compared to the web server every time that a website visitor opens them again. Memcached is used to cache API and database calls, so it could increase the speed of dynamic sites like online stores, community forums or social networks. Node.js is employed for scalable web programs and it functions in real-time, which makes it ideal for server-side data processing - chats, browser games, booking portals, etc. You will be able to select how much memory these accelerators shall employ and how many instances of each will run from your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

You shall be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the websites hosted inside your semi-dedicated server account based on the nature of the website content. Memcached, for example, caches database requests, therefore it's a fantastic choice for any script app such as WordPress or Joomla. That way, the database server shall not have to process the very same request if a number of users open a site with the same content. Varnish is comparable, but it is a general-purpose accelerator since it caches any type of content the first time a guest opens a site. In case that page is opened again by the exact same visitor, it will be delivered by Varnish at a much higher speed compared to the server. Employing this web accelerator can decrease the load created by your Internet sites substantially. Last, but not least, Node.js will enable you to create scalable web applications like hotel booking Internet sites or chats. Its advantage over very similar platforms is that it does not wait for a client to submit a substantial piece of data, but processes whatever the user is typing in real-time. The 3 web accelerators are available inside the Hepsia Control Panel and you shall be able to pick how many instances of every one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they'll use.

Web Accelerators in VPS Servers

In the event that you get a VPS server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to employ Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your Internet sites. All 3 accelerators are integrated within our solutions by default and feature dedicated memory of several hundred MBs. Node.js is used to develop scalable programs where real-time interaction is necessary - booking sites, online flash games, chats, etc. It processes the info in small parts as the user is entering it, therefore it functions more quickly than other platforms that wait for the end users to input one sizeable bit of data. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator which works as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it in case the same guest opens the same page again, which can certainly speed any Internet site several times since Varnish works more quickly than any server. Memcached is used for caching API and database responses, consequently it is appropriate for script-driven sites such as WordPress and Joomla. This web accelerator can easily reduce the load on your web server because it'll decrease the amount of database queries which your websites make.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

If you get a dedicated server from our firm and you choose Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel, you will be able to use Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your Internet sites. All plans come with several gigabytes of memory dedicated to these accelerators and the actual amount depends on the package deal you choose. Node.js is employed for scalable online apps such as browser games or hotel booking and it processes the information in real time as the client enters it, which makes it faster than very similar platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you employ it for a script-driven website, not simply will the site work faster, but also the load on the web server will decrease because there shall be considerably less database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it's not at all limited to databases. Rather, it caches whole web pages once a guest opens them and provides them instead of the server each time the same visitor opens them later. As Varnish processes web requests much quicker than any hosting server, the performance of a site using this accelerator could increase around 300%.
