A web accelerator is a program that quickens a website, usually by caching its content. There are many kinds of accelerators, but in the general case such apps cache static content or database responses and provide them in lieu of the web server, hence enhancing the performance of an Internet site noticeably. The latter is possible because accelerator programs work faster than a server and not simply will a website operate better, but the server load will also lessen, which will permit you to run heavy websites with less resources. We offer 3 web accelerators with our hosting solutions, which will enable you to speed up any sort of site. In comparison, most hosting service providers don't provide any web accelerators or provide only one, which limits your choice of web apps in case you would like to employ such software.

Web Accelerators in Shared Web Hosting

We provide three of the most well-known web accelerators together with our shared web hosting solutions and based on what plan you shall choose when you sign up, they might already be available or they may be an optional upgrade. Varnish is the most widely used one of them and it can be employed for any type of site. It caches the web pages the first time a website visitor opens them and delivers them at a considerably faster speed compared to the hosting server each time that a 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 employed for scalable web apps and it operates in real-time, which makes it excellent for server-side data processing - chats, browser games, booking portals, and so on. You will be able to choose how much memory these accelerators will employ and how many instances of each one will run from your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you go for one of our semi-dedicated server packages, you shall be able to take advantage of Varnish, Memcached and Node.js - three powerful web accelerators. Varnish is a multi-purpose application that caches web pages the first time a site visitor opens them and provides them instead of the hosting server if the site visitor opens them again up to 300% more quickly. Memcached caches API and database calls and responses so that the server doesn't need to process each request, which makes it perfect for database-driven sites, for instance ones built with Joomla or WordPress. Node.js is used to create web apps that work in real-time like chats or accommodation booking sites and it processes each bit of data the instant the user types it rather than waiting for big portions of information to be accumulated. The Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with our semi-dedicated solutions shall allow you to pick how many instances of each accelerator will work at a time and how much memory they will use.

Web Accelerators in VPS Servers

All VPS servers that are incorporated with the Hepsia Control Panel come with Varnish, Memcached and Node.js already included and you will get several hundred MBs of dedicated memory for them by default. Varnish, that is also known as an HTTP reverse proxy, caches webpages the first time a website visitor opens them and delivers them in case that guest opens them again, therefore the web server won't need to perform any action. As Varnish functions much quicker than any hosting server, a site employing this accelerator will operate several times faster. Memcached is a platform which caches database calls and responses and it's used for WordPress, Joomla and other script-driven programs which store their content inside a database. Node.js is an effective platform for creating scalable web apps. Any data on an Internet site that employs Node.js is processed in real time, making it a superb choice for dining and accommodation booking sites, web-based chats, browser games, and so on.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

In case you purchase a dedicated server from us and you pick Hepsia as the hosting CP, you shall be able to use Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your Internet sites. All solutions include several gigabytes of memory dedicated to those accelerators and the specific amount depends on the package that you select. Node.js is employed for scalable online programs like browser games or hotel booking and it processes the information right away as the user enters it, which makes it much quicker than comparable platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you use it for a script-driven site, not only will the site speed up, but also the load on the web server will decline as there shall be less database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it isn't limited to databases. Instead, it caches entire webpages once a website visitor opens them and delivers them instead of the server every time the same visitor opens them later. Because Varnish processes web requests faster than any server, the performance of a site using this accelerator may increase nearly 300%.
