A web accelerator is a software which speeds up a website, normally by caching its content. There are different types of accelerators, but in the general case this kind of applications cache static content or database responses and supply them in lieu of the server, hence improving the performance of a website considerably. The latter is achievable because accelerator applications work faster than a server and not only will a site operate better, but the server load shall also decline, which will allow you to run heavy sites with less resources. We provide 3 web accelerators with our hosting solutions, which will enable you to speed up any kind of website. In comparison, most hosting providers don't provide any web accelerators or offer only one, which limits your choice of web apps if you want to employ this type of software.

Web Accelerators in Hosting

We provide three of the most well-known web accelerators along with our hosting packages and depending on what plan you shall select when you sign up, they might already be available or they may be an optional upgrade. Varnish is the most well-known one of them and it may be used for any sort of website. It caches the pages the first time a visitor opens them and provides them at a faster speed compared to the server each and every time that a website visitor opens them again. Memcached is used to cache API and database calls, so it could increase the speed of dynamic websites like online stores, discussion boards or social networks. Node.js is used for scalable web apps and it works in real-time, which makes it excellent for server-side data processing - chats, browser games, booking portals, etcetera. You shall be able to choose just how much memory these accelerators shall employ and how many instances of each shall run from your Hepsia website hosting CP.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the Internet sites hosted inside your semi-dedicated server account based on the nature of the site content. Memcached, in particular, caches database requests, so it is a fantastic option for any script program such as WordPress or Joomla. This way, the database hosting server won't have to process the very same request if many users open a site with the same content. Varnish is comparable, but it is a general-purpose accelerator since it caches any kind of content the first time a visitor opens a site. In case this web page is opened again by the very same guest, it shall be delivered by Varnish at a much better speed compared to the web server. Using this web accelerator will lessen the load created by your websites significantly. Last, but not least, Node.js shall permit you to build scalable web apps such as hotel booking websites or chats. Its advantage over comparable platforms is that it doesn't wait for a customer to submit a large piece of information, but processes whatever the client is inputting in real-time. The 3 web accelerators are available inside the Hepsia CP and you shall be able to choose how many instances of every one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they may use.

Web Accelerators in VPS Servers

In case you get a VPS server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to employ Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your websites. All three accelerators are integrated inside our packages by default and feature dedicated memory of several hundred megabytes. Node.js is employed to develop scalable applications where real-time interaction is needed - booking websites, online flash games, chats, and so on. It processes the data in small pieces as the user is entering it, thus it operates much faster than other platforms which wait for the users to input one sizeable piece of information. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator which functions as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it in case the same visitor opens the same website again, which can certainly speed any Internet site several times because Varnish functions quicker than any hosting server. Memcached is used for caching API and database responses, consequently it's suitable for script-driven sites such as WordPress and Joomla. This web accelerator can easily lessen the load on your hosting server since it will reduced the number of database queries which your sites make.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

Memcached, Varnish and Node.js are available with all dedicated servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting CP and depending on the package that you opt for, you shall also have several gigabytes of dedicated memory for them. Memcached will lessen the web server load by lowering the number of queries that have to be dealt with because it caches database calls and responses. You shall be able to use it on any site which uses an API or a database - for example, any website designed with WordPress or Joomla. Varnish could boost the performance of any sort of website by caching whole pages the first time a guest opens them. The accelerator delivers the web pages if the exact same visitor opens them afterwards and because it does that much quicker than the web server, the website visitor shall be able to look through your Internet site at least several times faster. For this reason Varnish is oftentimes called an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is an innovative platform which will enable you to build booking websites, web chats and other programs in which real-time server-user interaction is necessary. It processes the information in little bits as the client fills different boxes and does not wait for all boxes to be filled and processed as one sizeable chunk of info, which makes Node.js much quicker than similar apps.
