A web accelerator is a software application that speeds up an Internet site typically by caching content and providing it instead of the server. Such programs could be used for both dynamic and static websites because there are various accelerators that can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The main advantage of using a web accelerator is that a given website shall perform substantially faster without using more resources. On the contrary, this kind of a website will require significantly less resources to function because the web accelerator will take care of most requests instead of the web server. In contrast to many companies which don't offer web accelerators with their plans or offer only 1, we offer three different ones which will allow you to speed up your websites regardless of their kind or content.

Web Accelerators in Hosting

If you purchase one of our hosting solutions, you'll have 3 well-known web accelerators at your disposal and you will be able to access them directly via the Hepsia CP that is included with our solutions. Varnish is one of the most popular ones and it can significantly increase the speed of any website because it caches the web pages a site visitor opens for the first time and delivers them each time that visitor opens them again. Given that Varnish functions faster than any web server, the loading speed of any website using the accelerator will raise considerably. Memcached is employed to cache database and API calls and responses between an Internet site visitor and a web server, so it is comparable to Varnish, but is used largely for database-driven sites. Because the Internet site will connect to its database significantly less, the overall web server load shall be reduced substantially. The 3rd accelerator, Node.js, is used for scalable online apps like chats and booking websites since it processes info in real time the instant it is entered on the site by the users. Dependant upon the package you pick, these accelerators could be available or may be an optional upgrade.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server solutions shall allow you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js - three of the most efficient web accelerators on the market. Memcached is used to cache database and API calls and responses, so it can easily accelerate any script-driven Internet site. You could use it for any site designed with WordPress or Joomla, for example. Varnish is also known as an HTTP reverse proxy and it is a general-purpose caching platform that may be employed for any sort of websites. Based on the content, it could boost the performance of a site close to 300%. Node.js is an innovative system used to develop scalable Internet apps which process information in real time such as booking portals. Its advantage is that in contrast to comparable platforms, it processes information continuously and in small bits instead of waiting for the user to submit one big piece of data. The accelerators can be enabled for any website via the Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to select how many instances of each one of them shall work and how much memory they will employ.

Web Accelerators in VPS Servers

If you get a VPS server with the Hepsia CP, you will be able to employ Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your sites. All three accelerators are included in our plans by default and come with dedicated memory of a few hundred MBs. Node.js is employed to create scalable applications where real-time interaction is necessary - booking websites, online flash games, chats, etc. It processes the information in smaller parts as the user is entering it, thus it operates faster than other platforms that wait for the users to submit one big part of data. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator which functions as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it if the same website visitor opens the same webpage again, which could speed any site several times due to the fact that Varnish functions faster than any server. Memcached is used for caching API and database responses, therefore it is appropriate for script-driven Internet sites such as WordPress and Joomla. This web accelerator can minimize the load on your web server as it'll reduce the number of database queries that your sites make.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

Memcached, Varnish and Node.js are provided with all dedicated servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and in accordance with the package that you select, you'll also have several gbs of dedicated memory for them. Memcached can minimize the hosting server load by lowering the amount of queries which have to be taken care of because it caches database calls and responses. You will be able to use it on any Internet site that uses an API or a database - for example, any site created with WordPress or Joomla. Varnish can easily enhance the performance of any kind of site by caching whole webpages the first time a guest opens them. The accelerator provides the webpages if the exact same visitor opens them later and because it does that considerably faster than the server, the website visitor shall be able to browse your Internet site at least a few times faster. For this reason Varnish is oftentimes referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is an innovative platform which will allow you to create booking sites, web chats and other apps in which real-time server-user interaction is necessary. It processes the data in little bits as the client fills different boxes and doesn't wait for all boxes to be filled and processed as one substantial piece of information, which makes Node.js considerably quicker than similar programs.
