A web accelerator is a software application that accelerates an Internet site usually by caching content and providing it instead of the hosting server. Such programs may be employed for both dynamic and static websites since there are a variety of accelerators that can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The main advantage of using a web accelerator is that a given Internet site will perform substantially faster without employing extra resources. Quite the opposite, such a website will need significantly less resources to work because the web accelerator will handle most requests rather than the server. Unlike many firms that don't offer web accelerators with their packages or offer only one, we offer 3 different ones that will permit you to speed up your sites regardless of their kind or content.

Web Accelerators in Hosting

Our hosting solutions come with three web accelerators that you could employ depending on the websites which you'd like to run. Memcached is used to cache database or API calls and responses, which could significantly improve the performance of dynamic sites. Varnish is a popular HTTP accelerator which caches pages and delivers them to the site visitors much faster than the server after the first time they open them. Node.js is an event-driven platform used for scalable real-time programs for example booking websites. Based on the hosting package you select, these three programs may already be included or could be optional upgrades. In either case, you'll be able to pick how many instances of each one of them shall be at your disposal and how much memory they ought to use. These accelerators are supplied only by several Internet hosting providers, including ours, and they could increase the speed of your web programs considerably.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

You shall be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the sites hosted inside your semi-dedicated server account in accordance with 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 hosting server won't have to process exactly the same request if many users open a site with the same content. Varnish is similar, but it is a general-purpose accelerator since it caches any kind of content the first time a visitor opens a page. In case this page is opened again by the exact same guest, it shall be provided by Varnish at a greater speed compared to the hosting server. Using this web accelerator will reduce the load created by your websites drastically. Last, but not least, Node.js will enable you to create scalable web applications like hotel booking Internet sites or chats. Its advantage over similar platforms is that it doesn't wait for a customer to submit a substantial piece of data, but processes whatever the customer is entering in real-time. The three web accelerators are available inside the Hepsia Control Panel and you shall be able to choose how many instances of each and every one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they'll employ.

Web Accelerators in VPS Servers

All VPS servers that are incorporated with the Hepsia CP come with Varnish, Memcached and Node.js already included and you will get several hundred MBs of dedicated memory for them by default. Varnish, that's also referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy, caches web pages the first time a site visitor opens them and delivers them if that guest opens them again, therefore the hosting server shall not have to perform any action. Since Varnish operates much faster than any server, a site employing this accelerator will operate several times faster. Memcached is a platform that caches database calls and responses and it's employed for WordPress, Joomla and other script-driven applications that store their content in a database. Node.js is a powerful platform for creating scalable web apps. Any information on a website which uses Node.js is processed instantly, which makes it a superb choice for dining and accommodation booking websites, web-based chats, web browser games, etc.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

In case you choose Hepsia as the hosting CP for your new dedicated server, you'll have Memcached, Varnish and Node.js at your disposal for increasing the speed of your sites. Memcached can easily reduce the load on the hosting server by lowering the queries your script-driven sites make as it caches database responses. This web accelerator is ideal for dynamic sites created with WordPress, Joomla and very similar scripts. Varnish, which is referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy, caches entire sites the first time a new guest opens them. It may be employed to accelerate any kind of Internet site since it provides the cached content considerably faster than the web server any time a website visitor opens the same webpage again. You can employ Node.js for online programs that require real-time server-client interaction including online chats or booking sites. In contrast to other platforms that wait for the user to enter everything on a form, Node.js processes the info gradually as the user fills each box, so it operates faster and more effectively. All dedicated server plans come with several gigabytes of memory dedicated to those three web accelerators.
