A web accelerator is a server-side app which speeds up a site. Such a piece of software can function in different ways based on the website content, but in the typical case all such applications cache content and deliver it instead of the server. That's valid for both dynamic and static sites since the cached content can be simple text or database responses and the reward of employing a web accelerator is not only the faster loading site, but also the lessened overall load on the web server. This way, you could employ a lower-end hosting plan that will also cost less while your website visitors could still enjoy fast browsing speeds. Few firms offer web accelerators with their hosting deals and they usually offer only 1, while we offer 3 different ones that will enable you to enhance the performance of any sort of site tremendously.

Web Accelerators in Shared Web Hosting

If you get one of our shared web hosting solutions, you shall have 3 well-known web accelerators at your disposal and you'll be able to access them directly using the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with our plans. Varnish is one of the most widely used ones and it can considerably speed up any site since it caches the pages a site visitor opens for the first time and provides them every time that visitor opens them again. Since Varnish works noticeably faster than any web server, the loading speed of any site using the accelerator will raise significantly. Memcached is employed to cache database and API calls and responses between a website visitor and a hosting server, so it is similar to Varnish, but is employed mainly for database-driven sites. Since the site shall connect to its database a lot less, the overall server load will be minimized considerably. The 3rd accelerator, Node.js, is used for scalable online applications including chats and booking Internet sites since it processes info in real time the moment it is entered on the webpage by the users. Depending on the package you select, these accelerators might be available or may be an optional upgrade.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the websites hosted within your semi-dedicated hosting account depending on the nature of the site content. Memcached, in particular, caches database requests, therefore it's a fantastic choice for any script program like WordPress or Joomla. This way, the database hosting server shall not have to process the very same request if a number of users open a webpage with the same content. Varnish is very similar, but it's a general-purpose accelerator as it caches any type of content the first time a guest opens a site. If that page is opened again by the same visitor, it'll be delivered by Varnish at a much higher speed compared to the web server. Using this web accelerator will lessen the load generated by your websites considerably. Last, but not least, Node.js will enable you to build scalable web apps like hotel booking sites or chats. Its advantage over comparable platforms is that it does not wait for a client to submit a sizable piece of info, but processes whatever the user is entering in real-time. The 3 web accelerators are available within the Hepsia Control Panel and you shall be able to pick how many instances of each one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they can use.

Web Accelerators in VPS Hosting

All virtual private servers which are integrated with the Hepsia CP come with Varnish, Memcached and Node.js already included and you will have several hundred MBs of dedicated memory for them by default. Varnish, that's also referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy, caches web pages the first time a guest opens them and provides them if that guest opens them again, hence the hosting server will not need to perform any action. Because Varnish works much faster than any web server, a website employing this accelerator will work several times swifter. Memcached is a platform that caches database calls and responses and it is used for WordPress, Joomla and other script-driven programs that store their content in a database. Node.js is an efficient platform for developing scalable web programs. Any info on a website which employs Node.js is processed right away, making it a fantastic choice for dining and accommodation booking sites, web-based chats, web browser games, and so forth.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Web Hosting

In case you select Hepsia as the hosting CP for your new dedicated server, you'll have Memcached, Varnish and Node.js readily available for increasing the speed of your websites. Memcached will be able to minimize the load on the hosting server by lowering the queries your script-driven websites make as it caches database responses. This web accelerator is good for dynamic sites designed with WordPress, Joomla and very similar scripts. Varnish, which is often called an HTTP reverse proxy, caches entire websites the first time a new website visitor opens them. It could be used to accelerate any type of Internet site because it delivers the cached content way quicker than the hosting server each time a customer opens the same page again. You can employ Node.js for online programs which require real-time server-client interaction such as online chats or booking sites. Different from other platforms which await the user to enter everything on a form, Node.js processes the data piece by piece as the user fills every box, so it works considerably faster and more efficiently. All dedicated server solutions come with several gigabytes of memory dedicated to these 3 web accelerators.
