A web accelerator is a software that speeds up a website, normally by caching its content. There are many sorts of accelerators, but in the general case such programs cache static content or database responses and deliver them in lieu of the web server, hence increasing the performance of a website significantly. The latter is possible because accelerator applications work faster than a web server and not only will a site operate better, but the server load shall also lessen, which will allow you to run heavy sites with less resources. We offer 3 web accelerators with our hosting packages, which will permit you to speed up any sort of website. In comparison, most website hosting providers do not provide any web accelerators or provide just one, which limits your choice of web applications in case you'd like to use this type of software.

Web Accelerators in Shared Hosting

If you get one of our shared hosting plans, you will have three widely used web accelerators at your disposal and you shall be able to access them directly using the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with our solutions. Varnish is one of the most popular ones and it can greatly accelerate any site since it caches the web pages a site visitor opens for the first time and delivers them every time that website visitor opens them again. Given that Varnish operates considerably faster than any hosting server, the loading speed of any site using the accelerator will improve noticeably. Memcached is employed to cache database and API calls and responses between a website visitor and a hosting server, so it's much like Varnish, but is employed mainly for database-driven Internet sites. Because the website shall connect to its database much less, the overall web server load shall be decreased significantly. The third accelerator, Node.js, is used for scalable online apps such as chats and booking websites since it processes info in real time the moment it is entered on the webpage by the users. Based on the package you select, these accelerators may be available or may be an optional upgrade.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You'll be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the Internet sites hosted in your semi-dedicated hosting account based on the nature of the website content. Memcached, for example, caches database requests, therefore it is a superb choice for any script app such as WordPress or Joomla. This way, the database web server will not have to process the same request if many users open a site with the same content. Varnish is comparable, but it's a general-purpose accelerator as it caches any type of content the first time a website visitor opens a site. In case this page is opened again by the same guest, it shall be delivered by Varnish at a greater speed compared to the hosting server. Using this web accelerator will decrease the load generated by your sites drastically. Last, but not least, Node.js will permit you to produce scalable web apps like hotel booking Internet sites or chats. Its advantage over comparable platforms is that it doesn't wait for a customer to submit a big piece of data, but processes whatever the customer is inputting in real-time. The three web accelerators are available in the Hepsia Control Panel and you'll be able to select how many instances of each one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they'll employ.

Web Accelerators in VPS

All virtual private servers which are set up with the Hepsia CP come with Varnish, Memcached and Node.js already included and you shall receive several hundred megabytes of dedicated memory for them by default. Varnish, that is also referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy, caches web pages the first time a website visitor opens them and provides them in case that visitor opens them again, therefore the hosting server shall not need to perform any action. Since Varnish operates much faster than any server, a website using this accelerator will work several times swifter. Memcached is a platform which caches database calls and responses and it is employed for WordPress, Joomla and other script-driven apps that store their content within a database. Node.js is an efficient platform for creating scalable web apps. Any info on a site that uses Node.js is processed right away, making it a great choice for dining and accommodation booking sites, web-based chats, web browser games, and so forth.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Hosting

If you obtain a dedicated server from our firm and you choose Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel, you will be able to employ Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your sites. All packages come with several gigabytes of memory dedicated to those accelerators and the specific amount depends on the package deal that you select. Node.js is used for scalable online programs including browser games or hotel booking and it processes the info right away 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 site, not simply will the website work faster, but also the load on the hosting server will decline as there will be less database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it is not limited to databases. Rather, it caches whole web pages once a visitor opens them and delivers them instead of the web server each 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 website using this accelerator can increase up to 300%.
