A web accelerator is a software program that accelerates a site typically by caching content and delivering it instead of the web server. Such applications could be employed for both dynamic and static sites as there are a variety of accelerators that can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The main advantage of employing a web accelerator is that a given site shall perform substantially faster without using more system resources. Just the opposite, such a website will need much less resources to operate as the web accelerator will tackle most requests instead of the web server. Contrary to many firms which don't offer web accelerators with their packages or offer just one, we offer three different ones which will enable you to speed up your websites whatever their kind or content.

Web Accelerators in Cloud Hosting

If you purchase one of our cloud hosting packages, you shall have 3 widely used web accelerators at your disposal and you shall be able to access them directly via the Hepsia Control Panel that is included with our solutions. Varnish is one of the most well-known ones and it could considerably speed up any Internet site since it caches the web pages a visitor opens for the first time and provides them every time that guest opens them again. Because Varnish works much faster than any web server, the loading speed of any website using the accelerator will improve considerably. Memcached is used to cache database and API calls and responses between a visitor and a server, so it's similar to Varnish, but is used primarily for database-driven websites. Considering that the website shall connect to its database significantly less, the overall hosting server load will be minimized notably. The 3rd accelerator, Node.js, is employed for scalable online programs including chats and booking Internet sites as it processes info in real time the moment it is entered on the website by the users. Dependant upon the plan you select, these accelerators could be available or could be an optional upgrade.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the Internet sites hosted inside your semi-dedicated server account based on the nature of the site content. Memcached, for example, caches database requests, therefore it's a fantastic option for any script app such as WordPress or Joomla. That way, the database web server won't have to process the same request if a number of users open a website with the same content. Varnish is very similar, but it's a general-purpose accelerator since it caches any kind of content the first time a guest opens a site. If this webpage is opened again by the very same visitor, it shall be provided by Varnish at a greater speed compared to the hosting server. Using this web accelerator shall decrease the load created by your Internet sites tremendously. Last, but not least, Node.js shall allow you to produce scalable web apps such as hotel booking Internet sites or chats. Its advantage over similar platforms is that it does not wait for a user to submit a substantial piece of info, but processes whatever the customer is typing in real-time. The three web accelerators are available within the Hepsia CP and you shall be able to choose how many instances of each and every one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they can employ.

Web Accelerators in VPS Servers

All VPS servers which are set up with the Hepsia CP come with Varnish, Memcached and Node.js already included and you'll get several hundred MBs of dedicated memory for them by default. Varnish, that's also known as an HTTP reverse proxy, caches webpages the first time a website visitor opens them and delivers them when that visitor opens them again, hence the hosting server will not need to perform any action. Because Varnish works faster than any hosting server, a website using this accelerator will function several times faster. Memcached is a platform which caches database calls and responses and it's used for WordPress, Joomla and other script-driven apps that store their content in a database. Node.js is a highly effective platform for building scalable web applications. Any data on an Internet site that employs Node.js is processed right away, making it a great choice for dining and accommodation booking sites, web-based chats, Internet browser games, etcetera.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

If you order a dedicated server from our company and you pick Hepsia as the hosting CP, you will be able to employ Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your websites. All packages include several gigabytes of memory dedicated to those accelerators and the specific amount depends on the package you select. Node.js is used for scalable online apps like browser games or hotel booking and it processes the info right away as the user enters it, which makes it considerably faster than very similar platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you use it for a script-driven website, not simply will the website speed up, but also the load on the web server will decrease as there will be a lesser amount of database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it's not at all limited to databases. Rather, it caches entire webpages once a visitor opens them and provides them instead of the hosting server each and every time the same visitor opens them later. Since Varnish processes web requests much quicker than any hosting server, the performance of an Internet site using this accelerator could increase nearly 300%.
