A web accelerator is a software application that speeds up a site generally by caching content and supplying it instead of the server. Such applications can be used for both static and dynamic Internet sites since there are various accelerators which can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The benefit of employing a web accelerator is that a given website shall perform substantially faster without employing more resources. On the contrary, this kind of a site will need significantly less resources to function since the web accelerator will handle most requests rather than the server. Unlike many firms which do not offer web accelerators with their plans or offer one, we offer 3 different ones which will permit you to speed up your websites regardless of their type or content.

Web Accelerators in Web Hosting

Our web hosting packages feature three web accelerators which you can employ depending on the websites that you'd like to run. Memcached is employed to cache database or API calls and responses, which could considerably boost the functionality of dynamic sites. Varnish is a popular HTTP accelerator which caches web pages and delivers them to the site visitors way quicker than the server after the first time they open them. Node.js is an event-driven platform employed for scalable real-time applications such as booking websites. Based on the hosting solution you pick, these three apps might already be included or might be optional upgrades. In either case, you shall be able to select how many instances of every one of them shall be at your disposal and how much memory they ought to use. These accelerators are supplied only by a few hosting firms, including ours, and they can easily raise the speed of your web apps drastically.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the websites hosted in your semi-dedicated server account based on the nature of the site content. Memcached, for instance, caches database requests, therefore it's a fantastic choice for any script program like WordPress or Joomla. This way, the database hosting server shall not have to process the exact same request if many users open a website with the same content. Varnish is similar, but it is a general-purpose accelerator because it caches any type of content the first time a visitor opens an Internet site. In case that webpage is opened again by the exact same guest, it will be delivered by Varnish at a much better speed compared to the web server. Using this web accelerator shall minimize the load generated by your websites tremendously. Last, but not least, Node.js shall permit you to create scalable web programs like hotel booking Internet sites or chats. Its advantage over very similar platforms is that it doesn't wait for a client to submit a big piece of information, but processes whatever the client is typing in real-time. The three web accelerators are available in the Hepsia Control Panel 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 may employ.

Web Accelerators in VPS Servers

All VPS servers which are incorporated with the Hepsia CP come with Varnish, Memcached and Node.js already included and you'll have several hundred megabytes of dedicated memory for them by default. Varnish, that's also often called an HTTP reverse proxy, caches pages the first time a website visitor opens them and delivers them in case that visitor opens them again, therefore the server will not have to perform any action. Since Varnish functions considerably faster than any web server, a site using this accelerator shall function several times quicker. Memcached is a platform that caches database calls and responses and it's employed for WordPress, Joomla and other script-driven programs that store their content in a database. Node.js is an effective platform for building scalable web programs. Any information on a site that employs Node.js is processed right away, which makes it an excellent choice for dining and accommodation booking sites, web-based chats, web browser games, etcetera.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

Memcached, Node.js and Varnish are offered by default with all of our dedicated servers which are ordered with Hepsia as the website hosting CP. These 3 web accelerators include several gigabytes of dedicated memory and you can employ them to speed up any sort of site. Memcached can substantially decrease the load on the server if you have script-driven websites since it caches database responses, therefore it decreases the amount of database queries the server has to handle. Node.js shall permit you to build scalable applications with real-time user-server interaction such as chats or dining booking sites. Its advantage over similar platforms is that it processes info as soon as the user enters it, so all the information is taken care of quicker and in small parts. Varnish caches whole Internet pages the first time a visitor opens them and provides them every time the same visitor opens them again, which makes it a universal accelerator for any kind of websites. As it functions faster than any hosting server, it could speed up an Internet site at least several times and as a result, Varnish is amongst the most widely used web accelerators around.
