A web accelerator is a software application that speeds up a site typically by caching content and providing it instead of the hosting server. Such programs could be used for both dynamic and static websites because there are different accelerators which can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The main advantage of employing a web accelerator is that a given Internet site shall perform noticeably faster without employing additional system resources. On the contrary, this type of a website will need significantly less resources to function as the web accelerator will take care of most requests rather than the hosting server. Unlike many firms that do not offer web accelerators with their solutions or offer just one, we offer 3 different ones which will enable you to speed up your Internet sites irrespective of their type or content.

Web Accelerators in Website Hosting

We offer three of the most popular web accelerators along with our website hosting packages and based on what plan you shall choose when you sign up, they might already be available or they may be an optional upgrade. Varnish is the most popular one of them and it may be used for any sort of website. It caches the pages the first time a visitor opens them and provides them at a considerably faster speed compared to the hosting server each and every time that a visitor opens them again. Memcached is employed to cache API and database calls, so it can increase the speed of dynamic Internet sites like online stores, discussion boards or social networks. Node.js is used for scalable web apps and it operates in real-time, which makes it ideal for server-side data processing - chats, browser games, booking portals, and so on. You will be able to select how much memory these accelerators shall employ and how many instances of each one shall run from your Hepsia Internet hosting Control Panel.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

You shall be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the Internet sites hosted within your semi-dedicated server account based on the nature of the site content. Memcached, in particular, caches database requests, therefore it's a superb option for any script program like WordPress or Joomla. That way, the database server shall not need to process the very same request if a number of users open a website with the same content. Varnish is comparable, but it's a general-purpose accelerator because it caches any sort of content the first time a visitor opens an Internet site. If this page is opened again by the exact same guest, it'll be delivered by Varnish at a much better speed compared to the hosting server. Using this web accelerator shall minimize the load produced by your sites substantially. Last, but not least, Node.js shall allow you to build scalable web apps such as hotel booking sites or chats. Its advantage over comparable platforms is that it doesn't wait for a user to submit a sizable piece of info, but processes whatever the client is typing in real-time. The 3 web accelerators are available in the Hepsia Control Panel and you shall be able to pick how many instances of each one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they'll employ.

Web Accelerators in VPS Servers

If you choose your VPS server to be incorporated with the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to use Varnish, Memcached and Node.js - three of the most widespread web accelerators. Varnish caches webpages the first time they're visited and provides them each and every time the same person visits them again, which will boost any sort of site several times. Memcached is employed for dynamic script applications like Joomla and WordPress as it caches database requests and responses, as a result the database web server won't need to process the very same webpage each and every time visitors open it if the same content should be shown. Node.js is a platform for building real-time applications for instance online games and chats. It operates much quicker than similar platforms as it processes the info in little bits all the time and does not wait for users to submit a substantial piece of data that will need more time to be processed. The three web accelerators are available with all Hepsia-based VPS plans and come with several hundred MBs of dedicated memory.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

Memcached, Varnish and Node.js are provided with all dedicated servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting CP and in accordance with the package which you select, you will also have several gigabytes of dedicated memory for them. Memcached can minimize the web server load by lowering the amount of queries which need to be dealt with because it caches database calls and responses. You shall be able to use it on any Internet site that uses an API or a database - for example, any website developed with WordPress or Joomla. Varnish can easily enhance the performance of any type of website by caching whole pages the first time a visitor opens them. The accelerator provides the webpages if the exact same visitor opens them later and given that it does that faster than the web server, the visitor shall be able to surf your site at least a couple of times faster. This is why Varnish is often called an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is an advanced platform that'll allow you to build booking websites, web chats and other programs where real-time server-user interaction is required. It processes the information in little portions as the user fills different boxes and does not wait for all boxes to be filled and processed as one sizeable chunk of data, which makes Node.js considerably faster than similar apps.
