A web accelerator is a piece of software that speeds up a site generally by caching content and providing it instead of the web server. Such apps can be employed for both dynamic and static sites since there are different accelerators that can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The main advantage of using a web accelerator is that a given Internet site will perform considerably faster without employing more system resources. Quite the opposite, this type of a site will need significantly less resources to work as the web accelerator will take care of most requests rather than the web server. Unlike many businesses that do not offer web accelerators with their plans or offer one, we offer 3 different ones that'll enable you to speed up your Internet sites regardless of their kind or content.

Web Accelerators in Shared Hosting

We offer 3 of the most popular web accelerators with our shared hosting solutions and based on what plan you shall pick when you sign up, they could already be available or they could be an optional upgrade. Varnish is the most widely used one of them and it can be used for any kind of site. It caches the web pages the first time a site visitor opens them and delivers them at a considerably faster speed compared to the hosting 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 Internet sites like online stores, discussion boards or social networks. Node.js is used for scalable web apps and it functions in real-time, which makes it ideal for server-side data processing - chats, browser games, booking portals, etcetera. You'll be able to pick how much memory these accelerators shall employ and how many instances of each will run from your Hepsia hosting CP.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You shall be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the websites hosted in your semi-dedicated hosting account based on the nature of the website content. Memcached, in particular, caches database requests, therefore it's a fantastic choice for any script application like WordPress or Joomla. That way, the database hosting server will not have to process the very same request if multiple users open a site with the same content. Varnish is very similar, but it's a general-purpose accelerator because it caches any type of content the first time a website visitor opens a page. In case that web page is opened again by the exact same visitor, it'll be provided by Varnish at a much better speed compared to the hosting server. Using this web accelerator will minimize the load generated by your Internet sites significantly. Last, but not least, Node.js will allow you to create scalable web apps such as hotel booking Internet sites or chats. Its advantage over comparable platforms is that it does not wait for a client to submit a sizable piece of data, but processes whatever the customer is typing in real-time. The three web accelerators are available in the Hepsia CP and you will be able to select how many instances of each one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they may use.

Web Accelerators in VPS Web Hosting

All virtual private servers that are incorporated with the Hepsia CP come with Varnish, Memcached and Node.js already included and you will get several hundred megabytes of dedicated memory for them by default. Varnish, that's also often called an HTTP reverse proxy, caches pages the first time a website visitor opens them and provides them in case that visitor opens them again, so the web server won't need to perform any action. Since Varnish operates faster than any hosting server, a site using this accelerator shall work several times swifter. Memcached is a platform which caches database calls and responses and it's employed for WordPress, Joomla and other script-driven programs that store their content inside a database. Node.js is a powerful platform for developing scalable web apps. Any data on an Internet site which uses Node.js is processed right away, making it a fantastic choice for dining and accommodation booking Internet sites, web-based chats, Internet browser games, etcetera.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers Hosting

In case you order a dedicated server from our company and you pick Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel, you will be able to employ Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your Internet sites. All plans feature several gigabytes of memory dedicated to these accelerators and the specific amount depends on the package deal that you select. Node.js is employed for scalable online applications like browser games or hotel booking and it processes the information immediately as the client enters it, which makes it much faster than comparable platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you employ it for a script-driven Internet site, not simply will the Internet site work faster, but also the load on the hosting server will minimize because there will be fewer database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it is not limited to databases. Instead, it caches whole web pages once a visitor opens them and provides them instead of the web server every time the same visitor opens them later. Because Varnish processes web requests much quicker than any server, the efficiency of a site using this accelerator can increase around 300%.
