A web accelerator is a server-side application that accelerates a website. Such a piece of software may operate in different ways based on the site content, but in the general situation all such applications cache content and deliver it instead of the server. That is valid for both dynamic and static Internet sites since the cached content could be simple text or database responses and the reward of using a web accelerator isn't just the faster loading website, but also the decreased overall load on the web server. That way, you'll be able to use a lower-end hosting solution that will also cost less while your site visitors could still enjoy fast browsing speeds. Several firms supply web accelerators with their hosting packages and they typically offer just 1, while we offer 3 different ones that will enable you to boost the performance of any sort of site tremendously.

Web Accelerators in Web Hosting

Our web hosting packages come with three web accelerators which you could employ depending on the websites that you'd like to run. Memcached is used to cache database or API calls and responses, which can significantly boost the functionality of dynamic Internet sites. Varnish is a popular HTTP accelerator which caches web pages and delivers them to the website visitors much faster than the web server after the first time they open them. Node.js is an event-driven platform used for scalable real-time programs for example booking sites. Based on the web hosting plan you select, these three programs may already be included or might be optional upgrades. In any case, you will be able to select how many instances of each one of them will be at your disposal and what amount of memory they ought to use. These accelerators are supplied only by a handful of hosting service providers, including ours, and they could increase the speed of your web apps drastically.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

The Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with our semi-dedicated server solutions will allow you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your websites. Memcached is among the most widely used accelerators since it can effortlessly speed up any API or database-driven Internet site by caching requests and responses, therefore the server won't need to process identical requests again and again. The platform is suitable for Internet sites designed with programs such as Joomla, Mambo or WordPress. Varnish is an efficient accelerator that caches any sort of content and is also known as an HTTP reverse proxy. It caches web pages which are opened by a visitor for the first time and provides them every time that very same visitor opens them again. Varnish can speed up a site several times since it delivers content quicker than any server. Node.js is a platform employed for scalable real-time apps such as chats, Internet browser games or social networks. It processes info in smaller bits the moment a user types anything, so it works faster than similar platforms in which users submit sizeable pieces of information which require time to be processed. You'll be able to choose the number of instances and the dedicated memory for each and every one of the three accelerators via your Control Panel.

Web Accelerators in VPS Servers

All VPS servers which are set up with the Hepsia Control Panel come with Varnish, Memcached and Node.js already included and you will receive several hundred MBs of dedicated memory for them by default. Varnish, that's also often called an HTTP reverse proxy, caches web pages the first time a site visitor opens them and provides them if that visitor opens them again, hence the web server will not need to perform any action. Due to the fact that Varnish functions much faster than any web server, an Internet site using this accelerator will operate several times swifter. Memcached is a platform which caches database calls and responses and it is used for WordPress, Joomla and other script-driven apps which store their content inside a database. Node.js is an efficient platform for creating scalable web apps. Any info on a website that uses Node.js is processed right away, which makes it a superb choice for dining and accommodation booking sites, web-based chats, web browser games, and so on.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

In case you acquire a dedicated server from our firm and you opt for Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel, you will be able to use Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your sites. All plans feature several gigabytes of memory dedicated to these accelerators and the specific amount depends on the package deal you choose. Node.js is used for scalable online apps like browser games or hotel booking and it processes the data right away as the user enters it, which makes it considerably faster than comparable platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you employ it for a script-driven Internet site, not only will the Internet site work faster, but also the load on the hosting server will decrease because there shall be fewer database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it's not limited to databases. Instead, it caches whole web pages once a website visitor opens them and delivers them instead of the server each and every time the same visitor opens them afterwards. As Varnish processes web requests faster than any server, the efficiency of a site using this accelerator may increase as much as 300%.
