A web accelerator is a piece of software that speeds up a site usually by caching content and supplying it instead of the web server. Such applications can be used for both static and dynamic sites because there are various 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 significantly faster without using additional system resources. On the contrary, this kind of a website will need much less resources to function because the web accelerator will take care of most requests rather than the hosting server. Unlike many businesses which do not offer web accelerators with their packages or offer just one, we offer 3 different ones that will permit you to speed up your Internet sites irrespective of their style or content.

Web Accelerators in Cloud Hosting

We provide three of the most popular web accelerators together with our cloud hosting packages and based upon what plan you will choose when you sign up, they could 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 kind of site. It caches the web pages the first time a visitor opens them and provides them at a much faster speed compared to the hosting server every time that a visitor opens them again. Memcached is used to cache API and database calls, so it can easily boost the speed of dynamic sites such as online stores, community forums or social networks. Node.js is used for scalable web applications and it operates in real-time, which makes it perfect for server-side data processing - chats, browser games, booking portals, and so forth. You'll be able to select what amount of memory these accelerators shall use and how many instances of each will run from your Hepsia Internet hosting CP.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

You shall be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the sites hosted within your semi-dedicated server account in accordance with the nature of the site content. Memcached, for instance, caches database requests, therefore it is an excellent option for any script program like WordPress or Joomla. That way, the database hosting server won't have to process the very same request if a number of users open a website 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 website visitor opens a page. In case this webpage is opened again by the very same visitor, it shall be provided by Varnish at a much better speed compared to the web server. Using this web accelerator shall minimize the load created by your Internet sites considerably. Last, but not least, Node.js shall enable you to create scalable web applications like hotel booking websites or chats. Its advantage over similar platforms is that it does not wait for a customer to submit a big piece of data, but processes whatever the user is entering in real-time. The 3 web accelerators are available inside the Hepsia Control Panel and you'll 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 Servers

In the event that you choose your VPS server to be incorporated with the Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to use Varnish, Memcached and Node.js - 3 of the most widely used web accelerators. Varnish caches sites the first time they are visited and delivers them every time the same person visits them again, which can accelerate any kind of website several times. Memcached is employed for dynamic script applications like Joomla and WordPress because it caches database requests and responses, as a result the database web server shall not need to process the exact same page every time visitors open it if the same content should be displayed. Node.js is a platform for building real-time applications like online games and chats. It functions considerably faster than similar platforms as it processes the info in tiny portions all the time and doesn't wait for users to submit a large piece of data which shall need more time to be processed. The three web accelerators are available with all Hepsia-based VPS packages and feature several hundred megabytes of dedicated memory.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

If you get a dedicated server from our firm and you choose Hepsia as the hosting CP, you shall be able to employ Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your websites. All plans feature several gigabytes of memory dedicated to those accelerators and the actual amount depends on the package that you choose. Node.js is used for scalable online applications such as browser games or hotel booking and it processes the information in real time as the user enters it, which makes it much faster than similar platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you employ it for a script-driven website, not only will the Internet site speed up, but also the load on the server will reduce as there shall be considerably less database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it's not limited to databases. Instead, it caches entire webpages once a visitor opens them and provides them instead of the server each and every time the same visitor opens them later. Because Varnish processes web requests much quicker than any web server, the overall performance of a site using this accelerator can increase as much as 300%.
