A web accelerator is a software program which accelerates an Internet site generally by caching content and delivering it instead of the web server. Such programs may be employed for both dynamic and static websites because there are different accelerators which can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The advantage of using a web accelerator is that a given site will perform considerably faster without employing extra resources. On the contrary, this kind of a website will demand a lesser amount of resources to function since the web accelerator will take care of most requests rather than the web server. Contrary to many businesses that do not offer web accelerators with their solutions or offer just one, we offer three different ones that will permit you to speed up your sites whatever their kind or content.

Web Accelerators in Shared Web Hosting

If you acquire one of our shared web hosting packages, you will have three popular web accelerators at your disposal and you will be able to access them directly via the Hepsia Control Panel that is included with our plans. Varnish is one of the most popular ones and it can significantly increase the speed of any website as it caches the pages that a site visitor opens for the first time and delivers them each time that guest opens them again. Since Varnish functions much faster than any hosting server, the loading speed of any Internet site using the accelerator will raise noticeably. Memcached is used to cache database and API calls and responses between a website visitor and a hosting server, so it's comparable to Varnish, but is employed largely for database-driven websites. Because the website will connect to its database significantly less, the overall web server load will be minimized considerably. The third accelerator, Node.js, is used for scalable online programs like chats and booking Internet sites as it processes info in real time as soon as it is entered on the site by the users. Depending on the package you pick, these accelerators might be available or could be an optional upgrade.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

You shall be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the websites hosted within your semi-dedicated server account depending on the nature of the site content. Memcached, in particular, caches database requests, so it is a fantastic choice for any script program such as WordPress or Joomla. That way, the database web server will not have to process the very same request if multiple users open a webpage with the same content. Varnish is comparable, but it is a general-purpose accelerator because it caches any sort of content the first time a visitor opens an Internet site. If that webpage is opened again by the exact same guest, it'll be delivered by Varnish at a much better speed compared to the hosting server. Employing this web accelerator can reduce the load created by your sites drastically. Last, but not least, Node.js will allow you to create scalable web programs like hotel booking Internet sites or chats. Its advantage over comparable platforms is that it does not wait for a user to submit a sizable piece of information, but processes whatever the customer is inputting in real-time. The 3 web accelerators are available in the Hepsia CP and you'll be able to pick how many instances of every one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they can use.

Web Accelerators in VPS Servers

In case you choose your VPS server to be incorporated with the Hepsia CP, you'll be able to use Varnish, Memcached and Node.js - three of the most widespread web accelerators. Varnish caches websites the first time they are visited and provides them every time the same individual visits them again, which can boost any type of Internet site several times. Memcached is employed for dynamic script applications such as Joomla and WordPress because it caches database requests and responses, as a consequence the database hosting server shall not have to process the very same webpage each time guests open it if the same content should be displayed. Node.js is a platform for building real-time apps for instance online games and chats. It functions considerably faster than similar platforms because it processes the info in little portions all the time and doesn't wait for users to submit a large piece of data which will require more time to be processed. The 3 web accelerators are offered with all Hepsia-based VPS plans and include several hundred MBs of dedicated memory.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

If you select Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel for your new dedicated server, you shall have Memcached, Varnish and Node.js at your disposal for accelerating your websites. Memcached will be able to minimize the load on the web server by lowering the queries your script-driven sites make because it caches database responses. This web accelerator is good for dynamic sites designed with WordPress, Joomla and very similar scripts. Varnish, which is referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy, caches whole webpages the first time a new guest opens them. It could be used to speed up any type of website since it delivers the cached content way quicker than the web server every time a visitor opens the same webpage again. You'll be able to use Node.js for online applications that require real-time server-client interaction like online chats or booking sites. In contrast to other platforms which await the user to enter everything on a form, Node.js processes the information little by little as the user fills every box, so it works considerably quicker and more effectively. All dedicated server plans include several gigabytes of memory dedicated to those 3 web accelerators.
