A web accelerator is a software program that speeds up a site usually by caching content and providing it instead of the server. Such programs can be used for both static and dynamic websites as there are different accelerators that 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 significantly faster without employing extra system resources. Just the opposite, such a site will demand much less resources to work since the web accelerator will handle most requests instead of the web server. In contrast to many firms which do not offer web accelerators with their plans or offer only 1, we offer 3 different ones which will permit you to speed up your sites irrespective of their type or content.

Web Accelerators in Cloud Web Hosting

If you buy one of our cloud web hosting solutions, you shall have 3 widely used web accelerators at your disposal and you will be able to access them directly using the Hepsia Control Panel which is included with our plans. Varnish is one of the most popular ones and it could considerably speed up any site as it caches the pages a website visitor opens for the first time and delivers them each and every time that website visitor opens them again. Since Varnish operates faster than any hosting server, the loading speed of any website using the accelerator will increase considerably. Memcached is employed to cache database and API calls and responses between an Internet site visitor and a web server, so it is much like Varnish, but is employed predominantly for database-driven Internet sites. Since the website will connect to its database way less, the overall hosting server load shall be minimized significantly. The last accelerator, Node.js, is used for scalable online applications such as chats and booking sites because it processes information in real time the instant it is entered on the site by the users. Depending on the plan you pick, these accelerators may be available or could be an optional upgrade.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you select one of our semi-dedicated server solutions, you will be able to employ Varnish, Memcached and Node.js - three effective web accelerators. Varnish is a multi-purpose application that caches pages the first time a visitor opens them and delivers them instead of the hosting server if the visitor opens them again close to 300% more quickly. Memcached caches API and database calls and responses to ensure the server doesn't have to process each and every request, which makes it suitable for database-driven websites, for example ones developed with Joomla or WordPress. Node.js is used to develop web programs which operate in real-time including chats or accommodation booking portals and it processes each bit of info the instant the user types it instead of waiting for large chunks of information to be accumulated. The Hepsia CP that is provided with our semi-dedicated packages will allow you to pick how many instances of each and every accelerator shall work at a time and the amount of memory they'll use.

Web Accelerators in VPS Servers

In the event that you get a VPS server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your Internet sites. All three accelerators are included in our plans by default and come with dedicated memory of a few hundred MBs. Node.js is employed to build scalable applications where real-time interaction is necessary - booking sites, online games, chats, etc. It processes the info in smaller pieces as the user is entering it, thus it operates faster than other platforms that wait for the users to enter one massive bit of data. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator that operates as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it in the event that the same guest opens the same website again, which can easily speed any website several times since Varnish operates faster than any web server. Memcached is used for caching API and database responses, so it's appropriate for script-driven websites like WordPress and Joomla. This web accelerator can easily lessen the load on your web server as it'll reduce the number of database queries your sites make.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

Memcached, Node.js and Varnish are provided by default with all our dedicated servers that are ordered with Hepsia as the Internet hosting Control Panel. These three web accelerators offer several gigabytes of dedicated memory and you could use them to speed up any type of Internet site. Memcached can drastically decrease the load on the hosting server if you have script-driven Internet sites since it caches database responses, thus it lessens the number of database queries which the hosting server has to tackle. Node.js shall enable you to build scalable applications with real-time user-server interaction such as chats or dining booking sites. Its advantage over comparable platforms is that it processes data as soon as the end user enters it, so all the data is managed swifter and in small bits. Varnish caches entire pages the first time a visitor opens them and delivers them every time the same visitor opens them again, that makes it a universal accelerator for any sort of Internet sites. As it functions faster than any server, it could speed up an Internet site at least several times and for that reason, Varnish is one of the most popular web accelerators on the market.
