A web accelerator is a software program that speeds up a site typically by caching content and supplying it instead of the web server. Such apps could be used for both static and dynamic websites because there are various accelerators that can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The best thing about using a web accelerator is that a given site will perform noticeably faster without employing more resources. On the contrary, such a site will demand significantly less resources to function because the web accelerator will handle most requests instead of the web server. Unlike many firms which do not offer web accelerators with their plans or offer only 1, we offer three different ones which will enable you to speed up your Internet sites regardless of their type or content.

Web Accelerators in Web Hosting

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

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

The Hepsia Control Panel that comes with our semi-dedicated server plans shall enable you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your websites. Memcached is one of the most famous accelerators because it can speed up any API or database-driven Internet site by caching requests and responses, as a result the server won't have to process identical requests time and time again. The platform is perfect for sites developed with apps such as Joomla, Mambo or WordPress. Varnish is a highly effective accelerator that caches any kind of content and is also known as an HTTP reverse proxy. It caches webpages that are opened by a website visitor for the first time and provides them each time that very same visitor opens them again. Varnish can easily accelerate a website several times as it delivers content faster than any hosting server. Node.js is a platform employed for scalable real-time applications such as chats, Internet browser games or social networks. It processes information in small bits the instant a user types anything, so it operates faster than similar platforms where users submit massive portions of info that need time to be processed. You can choose the number of instances and the dedicated memory for every one of the 3 accelerators using your Control Panel.

Web Accelerators in VPS Servers

We provide Memcached, Node.js and Varnish with all VPS servers which are acquired with the Hepsia Control Panel. Your web server will also include several hundred MBs of dedicated memory for these accelerators and the actual amount would be determined by the plan that you select. Memcached is used for script-driven sites as it caches database responses, as a result reducing the amount of queries a script sends to its database. It can be used for any script including WordPress or Joomla. Node.js is an effective platform for building web applications such as booking Internet sites and chats. The real-time interaction between end users and a web server is carried out by processing little parts of info as soon any user inputs anything on the webpage. By comparison, other platforms wait for customers to input a considerable amount of data before they process it, thus they operate slower. Varnish is a multi-purpose accelerator which caches whole webpages and provides them instead of the web server at a considerably quicker rate. It's also known as an HTTP reverse proxy and it can speed up any type of website.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

In case you buy a dedicated server from us and you opt for Hepsia as the hosting CP, you will be able to use Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your sites. All packages feature several gigabytes of memory dedicated to these accelerators and the exact amount depends on the package 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 user enters it, which makes it much quicker than similar platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you employ it for a script-driven website, not only will the site speed up, but also the load on the web server will minimize since there will be a lesser amount of database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it isn't limited to databases. Rather, it caches entire web pages once a website visitor opens them and provides them instead of the web server every time the same visitor opens them afterwards. As Varnish processes web requests much quicker than any server, the performance of a website using this accelerator may increase as much as 300%.
