A web accelerator is a software program that accelerates an Internet site usually by caching content and supplying it instead of the server. Such programs could be employed for both static and dynamic websites since there are a variety of accelerators which can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The main advantage of using a web accelerator is that a given site will perform substantially faster without employing extra system resources. On the contrary, this kind of a website will demand a lesser amount of resources to work as the web accelerator will tackle most requests instead of the server. Contrary to many companies that do not offer web accelerators with their plans or offer one, we offer 3 different ones which will enable you to speed up your sites irrespective of their style or content.

Web Accelerators in Cloud Hosting

If you purchase one of our cloud hosting solutions, you shall have three widely used web accelerators at your disposal and you'll be able to access them directly through the Hepsia CP that comes with our plans. Varnish is one of the most widely used ones and it can greatly increase the speed of any site because it caches the pages a website visitor opens for the first time and delivers them each time that website visitor opens them again. Given that Varnish operates way quicker than any web server, the loading speed of any Internet site using the accelerator will raise substantially. Memcached is used to cache database and API calls and responses between a website visitor and a web server, so it's comparable to Varnish, but is used mainly for database-driven sites. Because the Internet site shall connect to its database way less, the overall web server load shall be minimized considerably. The 3rd accelerator, Node.js, is used for scalable online applications like chats and booking sites as it processes info in real time the instant it is entered on the webpage by the users. Based on the plan you pick, these accelerators may be available or could be an optional upgrade.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

You'll 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 website content. Memcached, for example, caches database requests, so it is a great option for any script application such as WordPress or Joomla. This way, the database hosting server won't have to process the very same request if a number of users open a website with the same content. Varnish is very similar, but it is a general-purpose accelerator as it caches any type of content the first time a guest opens a site. In case that page is opened again by the exact same guest, it shall be provided by Varnish at a greater speed compared to the hosting server. Employing this web accelerator can reduce the load generated by your Internet sites significantly. Last, but not least, Node.js will enable you to create scalable web applications such as hotel booking Internet sites or chats. Its advantage over very similar platforms is that it doesn't wait for a user to submit a sizable piece of information, but processes whatever the user is entering in real-time. The three web accelerators are available within the Hepsia CP and you will be able to pick how many instances of every one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they may use.

Web Accelerators in VPS Servers

All VPS servers which are set up with the Hepsia Control Panel come with Varnish, Memcached and Node.js already included and you will have several hundred MBs of dedicated memory for them by default. Varnish, that's also often called an HTTP reverse proxy, caches webpages the first time a guest opens them and provides them in case that guest opens them again, therefore the web server will not have to perform any action. Since Varnish operates considerably faster than any server, an Internet site employing this accelerator shall function several times quicker. Memcached is a platform which caches database calls and responses and it's used for WordPress, Joomla and other script-driven applications that store their content in a database. Node.js is a highly effective platform for creating scalable web apps. Any information on an Internet site that uses Node.js is processed in real time, making it an excellent choice for dining and accommodation booking websites, web-based chats, browser games, and so on.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

In case you buy a dedicated server from our company and you opt for Hepsia as the hosting CP, you shall be able to employ Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your sites. All solutions come with several gigabytes of memory dedicated to those accelerators and the exact amount depends on the plan that you select. Node.js is employed for scalable online apps such as browser games or hotel booking and it processes the information in real time as the user enters it, which makes it considerably quicker than very similar platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you employ it for a script-driven website, not simply will the site work faster, but also the load on the server will decrease since there will be fewer database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it is not limited to databases. Instead, it caches whole pages once a guest opens them and provides them instead of the server each time the same visitor opens them later. Due to the fact that Varnish processes web requests faster than any web server, the overall performance of a website using this accelerator may increase around 300%.
