A web accelerator is a software application which accelerates a site usually by caching content and providing it instead of the server. Such apps may be used for both dynamic and static Internet sites as there are different 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 shall perform considerably faster without employing extra resources. On the contrary, this kind of a site will require significantly less resources to operate as the web accelerator will handle most requests instead of the hosting server. In contrast to many companies which don't offer web accelerators with their solutions or offer just one, we offer 3 different ones which will permit you to speed up your Internet sites irrespective of their type or content.

Web Accelerators in Website Hosting

We offer three of the most well-known web accelerators with our website hosting packages and depending on what plan you shall select when you sign up, they might already be available or they could be an optional upgrade. Varnish is the most widely used one of them and it could be used for any sort of site. It caches the web pages the first time a website visitor opens them and delivers them at a much faster speed compared to the hosting server each time that a visitor opens them again. Memcached is employed to cache API and database calls, so it can easily increase the speed of dynamic Internet sites such as online stores, community forums or social networks. Node.js is used for scalable web programs and it works in real-time, which makes it suitable for server-side data processing - chats, browser games, booking portals, and so on. You will be able to choose what amount of memory these accelerators shall employ and how many instances of each and every one will run from your Hepsia Internet hosting Control Panel.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you pick one of our semi-dedicated server solutions, you will be able to take advantage of Varnish, Memcached and Node.js - three effective web accelerators. Varnish is a multi-purpose application which caches websites the first time a visitor opens them and delivers them instead of the web server if the website visitor opens them again nearly 300% faster. Memcached caches API and database calls and responses to ensure the hosting server doesn't have to process each and every request, that makes it suitable for database-driven websites, for example ones built with Joomla or WordPress. Node.js is employed to build web applications that work in real-time like chats or accommodation booking sites and it processes each bit of data as soon as the user enters it instead of waiting for big portions of info to be accumulated. The Hepsia Control Panel which is provided with our semi-dedicated solutions will permit you to select how many instances of each and every accelerator will work at a time and just how much memory they'll use.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

In case you get a dedicated server from our firm and you opt for Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel, you shall be able to employ Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your Internet sites. All plans include several gigabytes of memory dedicated to those accelerators and the actual amount depends on the package that you choose. Node.js is used for scalable online programs including browser games or hotel booking and it processes the info immediately as the user enters it, which makes it faster than comparable platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you employ it for a script-driven website, not only will the website work faster, but also the load on the server will reduce because there will be considerably less database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it's not at all limited to databases. Instead, it caches whole web pages once a guest opens them and provides them instead of the server each and every time the same visitor opens them later on. Because Varnish processes web requests considerably faster than any web server, the overall performance of a website using this accelerator can increase up to 300%.
