A web accelerator is a software which accelerates an Internet site, typically by caching its content. There are many kinds of accelerators, but in the common case this kind of apps cache static content or database responses and provide them instead of the hosting server, thus boosting the performance of a website drastically. The latter is possible because accelerator apps work faster than a web server and not simply will a website work better, but the server load will also minimize, which will permit you to run heavy sites with less resources. We provide three web accelerators with our hosting solutions, which will enable you to speed up any kind of website. In comparison, most Internet hosting service providers don't offer any web accelerators or offer only 1, which limits your choice of web applications if you would like to employ such software.

Web Accelerators in Hosting

If you purchase one of our hosting plans, you'll have 3 popular web accelerators at your disposal and you will be able to access them directly through the Hepsia Control Panel which is included with our solutions. Varnish is one of the most well-known ones and it could greatly accelerate any website because it caches the web pages which a website visitor opens for the first time and provides them each time that visitor opens them again. Because Varnish functions considerably faster than any hosting server, the loading speed of any website using the accelerator shall increase substantially. Memcached is employed to cache database and API calls and responses between a visitor and a server, so it's comparable to Varnish, but is used mainly for database-driven Internet sites. Considering that the site will connect to its database significantly less, the overall hosting server load shall be decreased considerably. The third accelerator, Node.js, is employed for scalable online programs such as chats and booking Internet sites because it processes info in real time the instant it is entered on the webpage by the users. Dependant upon the plan you pick, these accelerators could be available or may be an optional upgrade.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Hepsia CP which is included with our semi-dedicated hosting packages shall allow you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your sites. Memcached is one of the most popular accelerators as it can easily accelerate any API or database-driven site by caching requests and responses, as a result the web server will not need to process identical requests again and again. The platform is suitable for sites built with applications such as Joomla, Mambo or WordPress. Varnish is a powerful accelerator that caches any sort of content and is also frequently called an HTTP reverse proxy. It caches webpages that are opened by a website visitor for the first time and provides them every time that very same visitor opens them again. Varnish can accelerate a website several times simply because it delivers content quicker than any web server. Node.js is a platform used for scalable real-time applications like chats, browser games or social networks. It processes information in smaller bits as soon as a user enters something, therefore it operates much more quickly than similar platforms where users submit massive portions of information that need time to be processed. You could choose the number of instances and the dedicated memory for every one of the 3 accelerators through your CP.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Hosting

In case you acquire a dedicated server from us and you select Hepsia as the hosting CP, you shall be able to use Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your Internet sites. All plans include several gigabytes of memory dedicated to these accelerators and the actual amount depends on the package deal that you select. Node.js is used for scalable online apps including browser games or hotel booking and it processes the info in real time as the client enters it, which makes it much quicker than very similar platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you employ it for a script-driven website, not simply will the website work faster, but also the load on the web server will decline because there will be less database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it isn't limited to databases. Instead, it caches entire pages once a visitor opens them and provides them instead of the web server whenever the same visitor opens them afterwards. Since Varnish processes web requests faster than any hosting server, the efficiency of a site using this accelerator may increase around 300%.
