A web accelerator is a software application which speeds up a website usually by caching content and delivering it instead of the hosting server. Such programs can be employed for both dynamic and static websites since there are a variety of accelerators which can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The benefit of employing a web accelerator is that a given site will perform considerably faster without employing more system resources. On the contrary, such a website will need much less resources to work because the web accelerator will tackle most requests rather than the web server. Unlike many companies which don't offer web accelerators with their plans or offer just one, we offer 3 different ones that'll enable you to speed up your Internet sites whatever their type or content.

Web Accelerators in Hosting

We offer 3 of the most popular web accelerators along with our hosting packages and based on what plan you will select when you sign up, they could already be available or they might be an optional upgrade. Varnish is the most widely used one of them and it could be used for any sort of website. It caches the pages the first time a visitor opens them and provides them at a faster speed compared to the server each time that a visitor opens them again. Memcached is used to cache API and database calls, so it can easily increase the speed of dynamic Internet sites like online stores, community forums or social networks. Node.js is used for scalable web applications and it operates in real-time, which makes it perfect for server-side data processing - chats, browser games, booking portals, and so forth. You'll be able to select what amount of memory these accelerators will employ and how many instances of each one shall run from your Hepsia web hosting CP.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server solutions shall allow you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js - three of the most powerful web accelerators available. Memcached is employed to cache database and API calls and responses, thus it can boost any script-driven website. You could use it for any website developed with WordPress or Joomla, for example. Varnish is also often called an HTTP reverse proxy and it's a general-purpose caching platform which can be used for any kind of websites. Based on the content, it could improve the performance of an Internet site up to 300%. Node.js is an innovative system used to create scalable Internet applications which process data in real time for example booking portals. Its advantage is that unlike similar platforms, it processes information constantly and in small bits instead of waiting for the user to submit one massive piece of data. The accelerators can be enabled for any site from the Hepsia Control Panel and you shall be able to pick how many instances of every one of them will work and how much memory they shall employ.

Web Accelerators in VPS Servers

In case you get a VPS server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you shall be able to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your websites. All three accelerators are included within our packages by default and feature dedicated memory of several hundred megabytes. Node.js is used to build scalable programs where real-time interaction is required - booking sites, online games, chats, etcetera. It processes the data in small parts as the end user is entering it, therefore it operates faster than other platforms that wait for the end users to input one sizeable part of information. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator that works as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it if the same site visitor opens the same webpage again, which could speed any Internet site several times due to the fact that Varnish works a lot quicker than any hosting server. Memcached is employed for caching API and database responses, consequently it's ideal for script-driven websites like WordPress and Joomla. This web accelerator will be able to reduce the load on your web server since it'll lower the number of database queries which your Internet sites make.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

In case you order a dedicated server from us and you opt for Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel, you will be able to use Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your sites. All packages feature several gigabytes of memory dedicated to those accelerators and the actual amount depends on the package you choose. Node.js is used for scalable online apps including browser games or hotel booking and it processes the data immediately as the client enters it, which makes it much quicker than similar platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you use it for a script-driven website, not simply will the website work faster, but also the load on the server will decline because there shall be less database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it's not at all limited to databases. Instead, it caches whole web pages once a visitor opens them and provides them instead of the web server each and every time the same visitor opens them later. Due to the fact that Varnish processes web requests considerably faster than any web server, the performance of a site using this accelerator can increase nearly 300%.
