A web accelerator is a program that accelerates a website, normally by caching its content. There are various kinds of accelerators, but in the general case this sort of apps cache static content or database responses and deliver them instead of the hosting server, hence boosting the performance of a website greatly. The latter is achievable because accelerator programs work faster than a hosting server and not simply will an Internet site function better, but the server load shall also decrease, 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 accelerate any type of website. In comparison, most hosting service providers don't provide any web accelerators or offer one, which limits your choice of web applications in case you would like to use such software.

Web Accelerators in Web Hosting

Our web hosting packages feature three web accelerators which you could use depending on the Internet sites which you'd like to run. Memcached is employed to cache database or API calls and responses, which could tremendously improve the functionality of dynamic websites. Varnish is a popular HTTP accelerator which caches pages and provides them to the site visitors considerably faster than the server after the first time they open them. Node.js is an event-driven platform used for scalable real-time programs such as booking sites. With respect to the Internet hosting solution you choose, these three applications may already be included or may be optional upgrades. In any case, you shall be able to select how many instances of each of them shall be at your disposal and what amount of memory they should employ. These accelerators are supplied only by a few Internet hosting providers, including ours, and they can increase the speed of your web applications significantly.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

You shall be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the sites hosted within your semi-dedicated server account in accordance with the nature of the site content. Memcached, for instance, caches database requests, so it is a superb choice for any script application such as WordPress or Joomla. That way, the database server won't have to process the same request if multiple users open a website with the same content. Varnish is similar, but it's a general-purpose accelerator because it caches any type of content the first time a website visitor opens an Internet site. In case that page is opened again by the same website visitor, it shall be delivered by Varnish at a much higher speed compared to the hosting server. Using this web accelerator can decrease the load created by your websites significantly. Last, but not least, Node.js shall permit you to build scalable web programs such as hotel booking websites or chats. Its advantage over very similar platforms is that it doesn't wait for a client to submit a big piece of information, but processes whatever the client is typing in real-time. The 3 web accelerators are available inside the Hepsia CP and you shall be able to choose how many instances of each one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they'll employ.

Web Accelerators in VPS Servers

We provide Memcached, Node.js and Varnish with all VPS servers which are purchased with the Hepsia Control Panel. Your hosting server shall also come with a few hundred megabytes of dedicated memory for these accelerators and the actual amount would be determined by the package deal that you choose. Memcached is employed for script-driven Internet sites as it caches database responses, thus decreasing the amount of queries a script sends to its database. It can be used for any script including WordPress or Joomla. Node.js is a powerful platform for building web apps including booking sites and chats. The real-time interaction between users and a web server is conducted by processing smaller parts of info as soon any user inputs anything on the webpage. By comparison, other platforms wait for customers to input a whole lot of information before they process it, consequently they work slowly. Varnish is a multi-purpose accelerator which caches entire webpages and provides them instead of the web server at a considerably faster rate. It is also known as an HTTP reverse proxy and it can effortlessly speed up any kind of Internet site.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

In case you acquire a dedicated server from our firm and you select Hepsia as the hosting CP, you will be able to use Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your sites. All plans feature several gigabytes of memory dedicated to these accelerators and the actual amount depends on the package deal that you choose. Node.js is used for scalable online applications such as browser games or hotel booking and it processes the data immediately as the client enters it, which makes it faster than similar platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you use it for a script-driven site, not simply will the Internet site speed up, but also the load on the server will decline as there shall be fewer database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it isn't limited to databases. Instead, it caches whole pages once a website visitor opens them and delivers them instead of the hosting server every time the same visitor opens them later. Since Varnish processes web requests much quicker than any server, the performance of an Internet site using this accelerator may increase around 300%.
