A web accelerator is a server-side app which accelerates a site. Such a piece of software may operate in different ways based on the site content, but in the typical case all such applications cache content and deliver it instead of the web server. That is valid for both static and dynamic websites as the cached content could be simple text or database responses and the advantage of using a web accelerator isn't just the faster loading Internet site, but also the minimized overall load on the web server. That way, you can use a lower-end hosting solution which will also cost less while your site visitors will be able to still enjoy fast browsing speeds. Several businesses provide web accelerators with their hosting packages and they often offer only 1, while we offer 3 different ones that will enable you to enhance the performance of any type of site tremendously.

Web Accelerators in Cloud Hosting

We offer 3 of the most popular web accelerators along with our cloud hosting solutions and based on what plan you shall select when you sign up, they could already be available or they could be an optional upgrade. Varnish is the most popular one of them and it can be used for any type of Internet site. It caches the pages the first time a visitor opens them and provides them at a much 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, forums or social networks. Node.js is used for scalable web applications and it operates in real-time, which makes it suitable for server-side data processing - chats, browser games, booking portals, and so on. You'll be able to pick the amount of memory these accelerators shall use and how many instances of each and every one will run from your Hepsia web hosting CP.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you choose one of our semi-dedicated server solutions, you shall be able to work with Varnish, Memcached and Node.js - three efficient web accelerators. Varnish is a multi-purpose application which caches web pages the first time a website visitor opens them and provides them instead of the server if the guest opens them again nearly 300% quicker. Memcached caches API and database calls and responses in order that the server does not have to process every request, which makes it perfect for database-driven websites, for instance ones built with Joomla or WordPress. Node.js is used to produce web applications which operate in real-time including chats or accommodation booking websites and it processes each bit of info the moment the user types it as opposed to waiting for sizeable chunks of information to be accumulated. The Hepsia Control Panel that is included with our semi-dedicated plans shall permit you to choose how many instances of each and every accelerator will work at a time and what amount of memory they'll use.

Web Accelerators in VPS Servers

In case you get a VPS server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to employ Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your sites. All 3 accelerators are integrated inside our plans by default and offer dedicated memory of several hundred megabytes. Node.js is employed to build scalable apps where real-time interaction is required - booking Internet sites, online games, chats, etcetera. It processes the data in small parts as the user is entering it, therefore it operates faster than other platforms which wait for the end users to enter one massive part of info. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator that functions as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it in the event that the same website visitor opens the same page again, which could speed any site several times because Varnish works quicker than any web server. Memcached is used for caching API and database responses, therefore it's suitable for script-driven websites such as WordPress and Joomla. This web accelerator can reduce the load on your web server as it'll lower the amount of database queries your websites make.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

In case you order a dedicated server from our firm and you choose Hepsia as the hosting CP, you shall be able to employ Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your websites. All plans include several gigabytes of memory dedicated to these accelerators and the actual amount depends on the plan that you choose. Node.js is employed for scalable online programs including browser games or hotel booking and it processes the data immediately as the client enters it, which makes it considerably quicker than comparable platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you use it for a script-driven Internet site, not simply will the Internet site work faster, but also the load on the web server will minimize because there shall be considerably less database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it is not limited to databases. Rather, it caches entire webpages once a visitor opens them and provides them instead of the hosting server every time the same visitor opens them afterwards. Because Varnish processes web requests much faster than any hosting server, the performance of an Internet site using this accelerator could increase up to 300%.
