A web accelerator is a software application which accelerates an Internet site typically by caching content and delivering it instead of the hosting server. Such applications may be used for both static and dynamic sites as there are various accelerators which can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The benefit of using a web accelerator is that a given website shall perform substantially faster without employing extra resources. Just the opposite, this type of a website will need significantly less resources to work because the web accelerator will handle most requests instead of the web server. Contrary to many firms 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 irrespective of their type or content.

Web Accelerators in Website Hosting

When you get one of our website hosting packages, you'll have 3 widely used web accelerators at your disposal and you will be able to access them directly through the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with our packages. Varnish is one of the most popular ones and it could significantly speed up any Internet site because it caches the web pages which a website visitor opens for the first time and delivers them each and every time that guest opens them again. Because Varnish operates noticeably faster than any hosting server, the loading speed of any Internet site using the accelerator will improve significantly. Memcached is employed to cache database and API calls and responses between a website visitor and a web server, so it is comparable to Varnish, but is used predominantly for database-driven websites. Because the website will connect to its database much less, the overall web server load shall be decreased notably. The last accelerator, Node.js, is used for scalable online applications such as chats and booking sites because it processes information in real time as soon as it is entered on the webpage by the users. Dependant upon the plan you choose, these accelerators may be available or could be an optional upgrade.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

You'll 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, in particular, caches database requests, therefore it is a superb option for any script program like WordPress or Joomla. That way, the database server will not have to process the same request if many users open a page with the same content. Varnish is comparable, but it is a general-purpose accelerator as it caches any kind of content the first time a website visitor opens a site. In case that web page is opened again by the very same guest, it'll be provided by Varnish at a greater speed compared to the web server. Employing this web accelerator shall minimize the load produced by your sites significantly. Last, but not least, Node.js will enable you to create scalable web apps such as hotel booking sites or chats. Its advantage over very similar platforms is that it doesn't wait for a client to submit a large piece of info, but processes whatever the customer is entering in real-time. The three web accelerators are available inside the Hepsia Control Panel and you'll be able to choose how many instances of each one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they may use.

Web Accelerators in VPS Servers

All VPS servers which are integrated with the Hepsia Control Panel come with Varnish, Memcached and Node.js already included and you shall have several hundred megabytes of dedicated memory for them by default. Varnish, which is also known as an HTTP reverse proxy, caches web pages the first time a visitor opens them and delivers them if that guest opens them again, so the server won't need to perform any action. Because Varnish functions faster than any hosting server, a website using this accelerator shall function several times quicker. Memcached is a platform that caches database calls and responses and it is employed for WordPress, Joomla and other script-driven apps that store their content within a database. Node.js is a powerful platform for developing scalable web programs. Any info on a website that employs Node.js is processed instantly, which makes it a fantastic choice for dining and accommodation booking websites, web-based chats, web browser games, etc.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

Memcached, Varnish and Node.js are available with all dedicated servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and depending on the package which you select, you'll also have several gigabytes of dedicated memory for them. Memcached shall reduce the hosting server load by lowering the number of queries that need to be addressed because it caches database calls and responses. You shall be able to use it on every site that uses an API or a database - for instance, any website built with WordPress or Joomla. Varnish can improve the performance of any type of Internet 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 way quicker than the server, the website visitor shall be able to look through your Internet site at least a couple of times faster. That is why Varnish is occasionally called an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is an innovative platform which will permit you to develop booking websites, web chats and other applications in which real-time server-user interaction is necessary. It processes the information in little portions as the user fills different boxes and does not wait for all boxes to be filled and processed as one large piece of information, which makes Node.js considerably faster than similar applications.
