A web accelerator is a software application that speeds up an Internet site typically by caching content and supplying it instead of the hosting server. Such apps can be used for both dynamic and static websites since there are a variety of 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 will perform significantly faster without employing additional resources. On the contrary, this kind of a site will demand significantly less resources to function because the web accelerator will take care of most requests instead of the server. Unlike many businesses which do not offer web accelerators with their plans or offer just one, we offer 3 different ones that'll permit you to speed up your Internet sites irrespective of their type or content.

Web Accelerators in Shared Website Hosting

Our shared website hosting solutions come with 3 web accelerators which you will be able to employ depending on the websites that you would like to run. Memcached is employed to cache database or API calls and responses, which can greatly boost the performance of dynamic sites. Varnish is a popular HTTP accelerator which caches pages and provides them to the site visitors much quicker than the server after the first time they open them. Node.js is an event-driven platform used for scalable real-time apps for example booking websites. Depending on the web hosting package you choose, these three apps could already be included or could be optional upgrades. Regardless, you shall be able to choose how many instances of every one of them shall be at your disposal and what amount of memory they should employ. These accelerators are supplied only by several web hosting firms, including ours, and they can boost the speed of your web apps considerably.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You'll be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the sites hosted in your semi-dedicated hosting account depending on the nature of the site content. Memcached, in particular, caches database requests, therefore it's a fantastic option for any script program like WordPress or Joomla. This way, the database web server won't need to process exactly the same request if a number of users open a website with the same content. Varnish is similar, but it's a general-purpose accelerator since it caches any type of content the first time a guest opens a site. If this page is opened again by the very same guest, it'll be provided by Varnish at a much better speed compared to the web server. Using this web accelerator can minimize the load produced by your sites considerably. Last, but not least, Node.js shall permit you to produce scalable web apps such as hotel booking Internet sites or chats. Its advantage over very similar platforms is that it does not wait for a customer to submit a large piece of info, but processes whatever the customer is typing in real-time. The three web accelerators are available in the Hepsia Control Panel 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 use.

Web Accelerators in VPS

We provide Memcached, Node.js and Varnish with all virtual private servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. Your hosting server will also come with several hundred MBs of dedicated memory for these accelerators and the specific amount would depend on the package deal that you choose. Memcached is employed for script-driven sites because it caches database responses, consequently decreasing the amount of queries a script sends to its database. It may be employed for any script like WordPress or Joomla. Node.js is a highly effective platform for building web applications like booking websites and chats. The real-time interaction between end users and a server is carried out by processing smaller parts of info as soon any user enters anything on the website. By comparison, other platforms await customers to enter a considerable amount of information before they process it, therefore they work slower. Varnish is a multi-purpose accelerator which caches entire webpages and delivers them instead of the web server at a faster rate. It is also known as an HTTP reverse proxy and it can speed up any sort of website.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Hosting

If you acquire a dedicated server from us and you opt for Hepsia as the hosting CP, you will be able to employ Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your websites. All plans feature several gigabytes of memory dedicated to those accelerators and the exact amount depends on the package deal that you select. Node.js is used for scalable online apps like browser games or hotel booking and it processes the information instantly as the user enters it, which makes it much quicker than very similar platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you employ it for a script-driven website, not only will the site work faster, but also the load on the web server will decrease because there shall be a lesser amount of database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it is not limited to databases. Rather, it caches whole pages once a guest opens them and provides them instead of the web server every time the same visitor opens them afterwards. Since Varnish processes web requests faster than any server, the overall performance of an Internet site using this accelerator could increase up to 300%.
