A web accelerator is a software program that accelerates a website typically by caching content and providing it instead of the web server. Such apps can be used for both dynamic and static sites since there are a variety of accelerators that can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The main advantage of using a web accelerator is that a given Internet site will perform noticeably faster without using more system resources. Quite the opposite, this type of a site will require significantly less resources to work since the web accelerator will deal with most requests rather than the hosting server. In contrast to many companies which don't offer web accelerators with their packages or offer one, we offer 3 different ones which will enable you to speed up your Internet sites whatever their style or content.

Web Accelerators in Shared Hosting

When you host your Internet sites within a shared hosting account from our firm, you shall have 3 popular web accelerators to pick from if you'd like to enhance the sites' performance. Memcached is used for database-driven Internet sites and it caches the calls and requests between an Internet site and its database, so it can minimize the load of such websites substantially. Varnish caches whole web pages the first time a visitor opens them and delivers them from there on if the same guest opens them again. It does that much more quickly than the web server, so it can easily raise the loading speed of any Internet site approximately 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time apps that functions on the web server and not in the visitor's web browser. It is employed for holiday accommodation booking, chats and other programs where plenty of data needs to be processed in real time. The availability of the accelerators depends upon the hosting package which you select - they could come by default or as an upgrade. In both cases, you shall be able to add more instances or more memory for each of them.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

You'll be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the Internet sites hosted within your semi-dedicated server account in accordance with the nature of the site content. Memcached, in particular, caches database requests, so it is a superb choice for any script app such as WordPress or Joomla. That way, the database hosting server shall not have to process the exact same request if multiple users open a page with the same content. Varnish is comparable, but it is a general-purpose accelerator since it caches any sort of content the first time a guest opens a site. If this page is opened again by the exact same website visitor, it shall be provided by Varnish at a much better speed compared to the hosting server. Employing this web accelerator shall lessen the load produced by your websites tremendously. Last, but not least, Node.js shall allow you to build scalable web programs such as hotel booking sites or chats. Its advantage over similar platforms is that it does not wait for a customer to submit a large piece of data, but processes whatever the user is entering in real-time. The three web accelerators are available within the Hepsia Control Panel and you'll be able to select how many instances of every one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they'll employ.

Web Accelerators in VPS Servers

In case you get a VPS server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your sites. All three accelerators are integrated in our plans by default and come with dedicated memory of a few hundred megabytes. Node.js is used to build scalable apps where real-time interaction is required - booking sites, online flash games, chats, etcetera. It processes the information in smaller portions as the end user is entering it, thus it functions more quickly than other platforms which wait for the end users to enter one massive part of info. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator which works as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it in the event that the same website visitor opens the same webpage again, which can speed any website several times because Varnish works a lot quicker than any server. Memcached is employed for caching API and database responses, so it is ideal for script-driven Internet sites like WordPress and Joomla. This web accelerator can easily minimize the load on your hosting server because it will reduced the number of database queries which your Internet sites make.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

If you acquire a dedicated server from us and you choose Hepsia as the hosting CP, you'll be able to employ Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your websites. All packages feature several gigabytes of memory dedicated to these accelerators and the specific amount depends on the plan that you choose. Node.js is used for scalable online applications including browser games or hotel booking and it processes the info in real time as the client 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 website, not simply will the website speed up, but also the load on the web server will decline because there will be less database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it is not limited to databases. Instead, it caches entire websites once a visitor opens them and provides them instead of the server each and every time the same visitor opens them afterwards. Because Varnish processes web requests considerably faster than any web server, the efficiency of an Internet site using this accelerator can increase up to 300%.
