A web accelerator is an application which accelerates a website, typically by caching its content. There are different sorts of accelerators, but in the common case this sort of applications cache static content or database responses and supply them in place of the hosting server, as a consequence boosting the performance of an Internet site drastically. The latter can be done because accelerator programs work faster than a server and not only will a site work better, but the server load shall also decline, which will allow you to run heavy websites with less system resources. We provide 3 web accelerators with our hosting plans, which will permit you to accelerate any kind of Internet site. In comparison, most web hosting companies don't offer any web accelerators or offer only 1, which limits your choice of web apps in the event that you'd like to employ such software.

Web Accelerators in Hosting

If you acquire one of our hosting solutions, you will have three widely used web accelerators at your disposal and you will be able to access them directly through the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with our plans. Varnish is one of the most popular ones and it can significantly speed up any website because it caches the web pages that a site visitor opens for the first time and delivers them each time that website visitor opens them again. Since Varnish functions faster than any hosting server, the loading speed of any website using the accelerator shall grow significantly. Memcached is employed to cache database and API calls and responses between a site visitor and a web server, so it's comparable to Varnish, but is employed primarily for database-driven sites. Because the site will connect to its database much less, the overall web server load will be reduced significantly. The last accelerator, Node.js, is employed for scalable online applications including chats and booking sites because it processes info in real time as soon as it is entered on the site by the users. Dependant upon the plan you pick, these accelerators might be available or might be an optional upgrade.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the sites hosted in your semi-dedicated server account depending on the nature of the site content. Memcached, for instance, caches database requests, therefore it is a superb option for any script app like WordPress or Joomla. This way, the database hosting server shall not need to process the very same request if many users open a webpage with the same content. Varnish is similar, but it's a general-purpose accelerator as it caches any type of content the first time a guest opens an Internet site. If that web page is opened again by the exact same visitor, it will be provided by Varnish at a greater speed compared to the hosting server. Using this web accelerator can minimize the load created by your sites drastically. Last, but not least, Node.js will allow you to create scalable web programs like hotel booking websites or chats. Its advantage over very similar platforms is that it doesn't wait for a customer to submit a big piece of info, but processes whatever the user is inputting in real-time. The 3 web accelerators are available inside the Hepsia CP and you will be able to choose how many instances of each one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they can use.

Web Accelerators in VPS Servers

All VPS servers that are incorporated with the Hepsia CP come with Varnish, Memcached and Node.js already included and you will have several hundred megabytes of dedicated memory for them by default. Varnish, which is also often called an HTTP reverse proxy, caches webpages the first time a website visitor opens them and delivers them when that visitor opens them again, therefore the hosting server will not have to perform any action. Since Varnish operates considerably faster than any web server, an Internet site employing this accelerator will operate several times faster. Memcached is a platform that caches database calls and responses and it is used for WordPress, Joomla and other script-driven applications that store their content within a database. Node.js is a powerful platform for building scalable web applications. Any information on a website which employs Node.js is processed in real time, making it a superb choice for dining and accommodation booking websites, web-based chats, browser games, and so forth.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

If you get a dedicated server from us and you select Hepsia as the hosting CP, you will 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 actual amount depends on the plan you choose. Node.js is used for scalable online apps such as browser games or hotel booking and it processes the information right away as the client enters it, which makes it faster than comparable platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you employ it for a script-driven website, not simply will the Internet site work faster, but also the load on the web server will decline since there will be considerably less database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it's not at all limited to databases. Instead, it caches whole websites once a guest opens them and provides them instead of the hosting server whenever the same visitor opens them later on. As Varnish processes web requests much faster than any hosting server, the efficiency of a site using this accelerator can increase up to 300%.
