A web accelerator is a server-side program that accelerates an Internet site. Such a piece of software could operate in different ways depending on the site content, but in the typical case all such apps cache content and deliver it instead of the server. This is valid for both static and dynamic sites because the cached content could be simple text or database responses and the benefit of employing a web accelerator is not only the faster loading Internet site, but also the reduced overall load on the server. This way, you can use a lower-end hosting solution which will also cost less while your site visitors will be able to still enjoy superior browsing speeds. Handful of companies offer web accelerators with their hosting deals and they typically offer only one, while we offer three different ones which will allow you to improve the performance of any type of site considerably.

Web Accelerators in Website Hosting

We provide 3 of the most popular web accelerators together with our website hosting packages and based on what plan you shall choose when you sign up, they might already be available or they could be an optional upgrade. Varnish is the most well-known one of them and it can be employed for any sort of website. It caches the web pages the first time a website visitor opens them and provides them at a much faster speed compared to the hosting server each and every time that a visitor opens them again. Memcached is employed to cache API and database calls, so it can boost the speed of dynamic Internet sites including online stores, discussion boards or social networks. Node.js is used for scalable web programs and it functions in real-time, which makes it ideal for server-side data processing - chats, browser games, booking portals, etc. You'll be able to select how much memory these accelerators shall use and how many instances of each will run from your Hepsia Internet hosting Control Panel.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the websites hosted within your semi-dedicated server account based on the nature of the website content. Memcached, for instance, caches database requests, so it is a superb option for any script program such as WordPress or Joomla. That way, the database hosting server will not have to process the same request if many users open a page with the same content. Varnish is similar, but it's a general-purpose accelerator because it caches any sort of content the first time a visitor opens a page. In case that page is opened again by the exact same guest, it'll be delivered by Varnish at a much higher speed compared to the server. Employing this web accelerator can minimize the load generated by your sites drastically. Last, but not least, Node.js shall allow you to create scalable web apps like hotel booking websites or chats. Its advantage over very similar platforms is that it doesn't wait for a user to submit a big piece of info, but processes whatever the user is typing in real-time. The 3 web accelerators are available in the Hepsia CP and you will be able to choose how many instances of each and every one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they can use.

Web Accelerators in VPS Servers

In case you get a VPS server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to employ Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your sites. All 3 accelerators are integrated inside our packages by default and come with dedicated memory of a few hundred MBs. Node.js is employed to develop scalable applications where real-time interaction is needed - booking sites, online games, chats, etcetera. It processes the information in small pieces as the user is entering it, therefore it operates quicker than other platforms that wait for the users to enter one massive piece of information. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator that works as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it in the event that the same visitor opens the same webpage again, which could speed any site several times as Varnish operates a lot quicker than any hosting server. Memcached is employed for caching API and database responses, therefore it is appropriate for script-driven Internet sites such as WordPress and Joomla. This web accelerator can lessen the load on your hosting server since it shall reduce the amount of database queries your websites make.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

Memcached, Varnish and Node.js are offered with all dedicated servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and in accordance with the plan that you choose, you will also have several gbs of dedicated memory for them. Memcached will reduce the hosting server load by lowering the amount of queries which need to be dealt with since it caches database calls and responses. You shall be able to use it on every Internet site which uses an API or a database - as an example, any website designed with WordPress or Joomla. Varnish could boost the performance of any sort of Internet site by caching whole pages the first time a visitor opens them. The accelerator provides the pages if the very same visitor opens them later and because it does that considerably faster than the web server, the visitor shall be able to browse your site at least a couple of times faster. This is why Varnish is sometimes called an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is a sophisticated platform which will allow you to build booking sites, web chats and other apps where real-time server-user interaction is needed. It processes the info in small bits as the user fills different boxes and does not wait for all boxes to be filled and processed as one large piece of data, which makes Node.js considerably faster than similar apps.
