A web accelerator is a server-side application which speeds up a website. Such a piece of software may work in different ways based on the website content, but in the general situation all such programs cache content and deliver it instead of the web server. That is valid for both static and dynamic Internet sites since the cached content may be simple text or database responses and the advantage of employing a web accelerator is not just the faster loading Internet site, but also the lessened overall load on the machine. This way, you may employ a lower-end hosting solution that'll also cost less while your visitors will be able to still enjoy high browsing speeds. Few businesses supply web accelerators with their hosting packages and they frequently offer only one, while we offer three different ones that will enable you to improve the performance of any type of website considerably.

Web Accelerators in Shared Hosting

In case you get one of our shared hosting plans, you will have 3 popular 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 considerably accelerate any site since it caches the web pages which a site visitor opens for the first time and delivers them each time that website visitor opens them again. Given that Varnish operates noticeably faster than any server, the loading speed of any Internet site using the accelerator will increase noticeably. Memcached is used to cache database and API calls and responses between a website visitor and a web server, so it is much like Varnish, but is used predominantly for database-driven sites. Considering that the site shall connect to its database way less, the overall web server load will be reduced substantially. The third accelerator, Node.js, is used for scalable online programs like chats and booking sites because it processes information in real time the moment it is entered on the website by the users. Dependant upon the plan you select, these accelerators could be available or might be an optional upgrade.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

The Hepsia CP that is included with our semi-dedicated server solutions shall permit you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your sites. Memcached is among the most widely used accelerators as it can increase the speed of any API or database-driven Internet site by caching requests and responses, as a result the web server shall not need to process identical requests over and over again. The platform is ideal for Internet sites developed with applications like Joomla, Mambo or WordPress. Varnish is a powerful accelerator that caches any sort of content and is also known as an HTTP reverse proxy. It caches pages which are opened by a website visitor for the first time and delivers them each and every time that same site visitor opens them again. Varnish can easily accelerate a website several times since it delivers content quicker than any server. Node.js is a platform used for scalable real-time applications such as chats, Internet browser games or social networks. It processes information in smaller bits the instant a user enters anything, as a result it functions much more quickly than similar platforms in which users submit sizeable portions of data that require time to be processed. You can select the number of instances and the dedicated memory for every one of the three accelerators through your CP.

Web Accelerators in VPS Servers

We provide Memcached, Node.js and Varnish with all VPS servers which are ordered with the Hepsia CP. Your server shall also feature several hundred megabytes of dedicated memory for these accelerators and the specific amount depends on the package that you choose. Memcached is used for script-driven Internet sites because it caches database responses, thus decreasing the amount of queries that a script sends to its database. It may be used for any script such as WordPress or Joomla. Node.js is a highly effective platform for building web programs like booking websites and chats. The real-time interaction between end users and a hosting server is carried out by processing small bits of info as soon any user enters anything on the webpage. In contrast, other platforms await customers to enter plenty of information before they process it, consequently they function more slowly. Varnish is a multi-purpose accelerator that caches whole web pages and delivers them instead of the web server at a faster rate. It's also referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy and it can effortlessly speed up any sort of Internet site.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

In case you buy a dedicated server from our company and you opt for Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel, you'll be able to use Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your websites. All solutions include several gigabytes of memory dedicated to those accelerators and the specific amount depends on the package deal that you choose. Node.js is used for scalable online applications such as browser games or hotel booking and it processes the data in real time as the client enters it, which makes it much faster than very similar platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you use it for a script-driven site, not simply will the site speed up, but also the load on the server will reduce since there will be less database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it's not limited to databases. Rather, it caches whole webpages once a visitor opens them and delivers them instead of the web server each time the same visitor opens them later on. As Varnish processes web requests much faster than any web server, the efficiency of a site using this accelerator may increase up to 300%.
