A web accelerator is a piece of software which speeds up an Internet site typically by caching content and supplying it instead of the server. Such applications may be used for both dynamic and static websites since there are a variety of accelerators that can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The advantage of employing a web accelerator is that a given website will perform significantly faster without using extra system resources. Just the opposite, this kind of a website will demand significantly less resources to work because the web accelerator will take care of most requests instead of the server. Contrary to many firms that do not offer web accelerators with their plans or offer just one, we offer three different ones which will allow you to speed up your websites regardless of their type or content.

Web Accelerators in Shared Hosting

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

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

The Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with our semi-dedicated server plans shall allow you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your sites. Memcached is among the most popular accelerators as it can accelerate any API or database-driven Internet site by caching requests and responses, thus the server shall not need to process identical requests again and again. The platform is perfect for websites designed with programs like Joomla, Mambo or WordPress. Varnish is a powerful accelerator that caches any kind of content and is also often called an HTTP reverse proxy. It caches pages that are opened by a website visitor for the first time and provides them every time that same site visitor opens them again. Varnish can certainly speed up a website several times because it delivers content faster than any web server. Node.js is a platform used for scalable real-time apps like chats, browser games or social networks. It processes data in smaller parts the moment a user enters something, therefore it functions much more quickly than similar platforms where users submit large parts of data which require time to be processed. You'll be able to select the number of instances and the dedicated memory for each of the three accelerators using your Control Panel.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

Memcached, Varnish and Node.js are provided with all dedicated servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting CP and based on the plan that you select, you shall also have several gbs of dedicated memory for them. Memcached can minimize the server load by lowering the number of queries which need to be taken care of since it caches database calls and responses. You will be able to use it on every Internet site which uses an API or a database - as an illustration, any site designed with WordPress or Joomla. Varnish can improve the performance of any type of site by caching whole webpages the first time a visitor opens them. The accelerator provides the webpages if the very same visitor opens them later on and considering the fact that it does that faster than the hosting server, the visitor shall be able to surf your site at least a couple of times faster. That's why Varnish is sometimes referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is an advanced platform that'll permit you to build booking sites, web chats and other programs in which real-time server-user interaction is necessary. It processes the information in small parts as the user fills different boxes and doesn't wait for all boxes to be filled and processed as one substantial piece of information, which makes Node.js considerably quicker than similar programs.
