A web accelerator is a software application that accelerates a website generally by caching content and delivering it instead of the server. Such apps may be employed for both static and dynamic websites as there are various accelerators which can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The benefit of employing a web accelerator is that a given site shall perform noticeably faster without using more system resources. On the contrary, this kind of a site will require a lesser amount of resources to work because the web accelerator will tackle most requests rather than the hosting server. Contrary to many companies that don't offer web accelerators with their packages or offer just one, we offer 3 different ones that will enable you to speed up your Internet sites irrespective of their kind or content.

Web Accelerators in Shared Hosting

If you host your sites within a shared hosting account from us, you shall have three popular web accelerators to choose from if you'd like to improve the sites' functionality. Memcached is employed for database-driven websites and it caches the calls and requests between a website and its database, so it could lessen the load of such Internet sites significantly. Varnish caches whole web pages the first time a visitor opens them and provides them from there on if the same guest opens them again. It does that much more quickly than the hosting server, so it can easily increase the loading speed of any Internet site as much as 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time applications that operates on the web server and not in the visitor's world-wide web browser. It's employed for holiday accommodation booking, chats and other apps where loads of data needs to be processed in real time. The availability of those accelerators depends upon the hosting plan that you pick - they might come by default or as an upgrade. In both cases, you will be able to include more instances or more memory for each of them.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server packages will permit you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js - three of the most powerful web accelerators on the market. Memcached is used to cache database and API calls and responses, therefore it can boost any script-driven Internet site. You could use it for any website built with WordPress or Joomla, for example. Varnish is also referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy and it is a general-purpose caching platform that can be employed for any sort of Internet sites. Depending on the content, it could boost the performance of a site close to 300%. Node.js is a sophisticated system employed to build scalable Internet applications that process information in real time such as booking portals. Its advantage is that in contrast to similar platforms, it processes data constantly and in small bits as opposed to waiting for the user to submit one large chunk of data. The accelerators can be enabled for any website through the Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to select how many instances of every one of them shall work and how much memory they will use.

Web Accelerators in VPS Servers

In the event that you get a VPS server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your Internet sites. All 3 accelerators are integrated inside our plans by default and come with dedicated memory of a few hundred MBs. Node.js is employed to build scalable apps where real-time interaction is needed - booking Internet sites, online games, chats, and so on. It processes the data in small parts as the user is entering it, therefore it works more quickly than other platforms that wait for the users to enter one massive piece of info. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator which works as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it when the same visitor opens the same webpage again, which can certainly speed any website several times since Varnish operates a lot quicker than any web server. Memcached is employed for caching API and database responses, therefore it is ideal for script-driven sites like WordPress and Joomla. This web accelerator will be able to minimize the load on your web server since it'll reduced the number of database queries that your websites make.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

If you purchase a dedicated server from our company and you choose Hepsia as the hosting CP, you will be able to use Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your websites. All packages come with several gigabytes of memory dedicated to these accelerators and the actual amount depends on the package that you choose. Node.js is used for scalable online applications like browser games or hotel booking and it processes the information immediately as the user enters it, which makes it considerably faster than comparable platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you use it for a script-driven Internet site, not only will the Internet site work faster, but also the load on the web server will minimize since there will be fewer database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it's not at all limited to databases. Rather, it caches entire webpages once a website visitor opens them and delivers them instead of the hosting server each time the same visitor opens them later on. Since Varnish processes web requests faster than any server, the performance of a website using this accelerator could increase around 300%.
