A web accelerator is a program which speeds up a site, normally by caching its content. There are many kinds of accelerators, but in the general case this sort of applications cache static content or database responses and deliver them instead of the server, therefore boosting the performance of a site considerably. The latter can be done because accelerator programs work faster than a hosting server and not only will a site operate better, but the server load shall also decline, which will permit you to run heavy websites with less system resources. We offer three web accelerators with our hosting plans, which will enable you to accelerate any sort of Internet site. In comparison, most hosting firms do not provide any web accelerators or offer only 1, which limits your choice of web apps in case you would like to use this type of software.

Web Accelerators in Hosting

When you get one of our hosting packages, you'll have three popular web accelerators at your disposal and you shall be able to access them directly using the Hepsia Control Panel which is included with our packages. Varnish is one of the most widely used ones and it can considerably accelerate any website as it caches the web pages that a site visitor opens for the first time and delivers them every time that visitor opens them again. Given that Varnish operates faster than any web server, the loading speed of any Internet site using the accelerator shall improve substantially. Memcached is used to cache database and API calls and responses between an Internet site visitor and a server, so it is comparable to Varnish, but is employed mainly for database-driven Internet sites. Since the website shall connect to its database a lot less, the overall server load will be decreased considerably. The last accelerator, Node.js, is used for scalable online applications including chats and booking Internet sites because it processes info in real time the moment it is entered on the site by the users. Based on the plan you select, these accelerators could be available or could be an optional upgrade.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you pick one of our semi-dedicated server solutions, you shall be able to take advantage of Varnish, Memcached and Node.js - 3 efficient web accelerators. Varnish is a multi-purpose app that caches web pages the first time a visitor opens them and provides them instead of the server if the visitor opens them again close to 300% quicker. Memcached caches API and database calls and responses to ensure the hosting server doesn't need to process each and every request, that makes it perfect for database-driven Internet sites, for example ones developed with Joomla or WordPress. Node.js is used to build web apps which operate in real-time like chats or accommodation booking portals and it processes each bit of information the moment the user enters it as opposed to waiting for massive portions of information to be accumulated. The Hepsia CP which is provided with our semi-dedicated packages will permit you to select how many instances of each accelerator shall work at a time and the amount of memory they will use.

Web Accelerators in VPS Servers

All VPS servers which are set up with the Hepsia CP come with Varnish, Memcached and Node.js already included and you will have several hundred megabytes of dedicated memory for them by default. Varnish, which is also known as an HTTP reverse proxy, caches webpages the first time a website visitor opens them and provides them in case that visitor opens them again, so the web server will not need to perform any action. Since Varnish works considerably faster than any web server, a website employing this accelerator shall function several times quicker. Memcached is a platform that caches database calls and responses and it's employed for WordPress, Joomla and other script-driven apps that store their content inside a database. Node.js is an efficient platform for developing scalable web applications. Any info on an Internet site that employs Node.js is processed in real time, which makes it a great choice for dining and accommodation booking websites, web-based chats, browser games, and so forth.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

Memcached, Node.js and Varnish are available by default with all of our dedicated servers that are ordered with Hepsia as the hosting CP. These three web accelerators include several gigabytes of dedicated memory and you can employ them to speed up any type of website. Memcached can greatly reduce the load on the web server if you have script-driven sites since it caches database responses, therefore it decreases the number of database queries that the web server has to take care of. Node.js will allow you to create scalable applications with real-time user-server interaction like chats or dining booking sites. Its advantage over comparable platforms is that it processes information as soon as the user enters it, so all the information is handled faster and in small bits. Varnish caches entire pages the first time a visitor opens them and provides them every time the same visitor opens them again, which makes it a universal accelerator for any kind of websites. As it operates faster than any web server, it can easily speed up an Internet site at least several times and as a result, Varnish is amongst the most popular web accelerators on the market.
