A web accelerator is a server-side app that accelerates an Internet site. Such a piece of software can operate in different ways based on the site content, but in the general situation all such programs cache content and deliver it instead of the server. That's valid for both dynamic and static websites since the cached content could be simple text or database responses and the advantage of using a web accelerator is not just the faster loading site, but also the decreased overall load on the server. That way, you could employ a lower-end hosting package which will also cost less while your website visitors will be able to still enjoy high browsing speeds. Handful of service providers offer web accelerators with their hosting plans and they usually offer only 1, while we offer 3 different ones that will allow you to boost the performance of any kind of Internet site noticeably.

Web Accelerators in Hosting

If you purchase one of our hosting plans, you shall have 3 widely used web accelerators at your disposal and you will be able to access them directly via the Hepsia CP that is included with our plans. Varnish is one of the most popular ones and it can greatly speed up any site as it caches the pages which a website visitor opens for the first time and provides them each time that visitor opens them again. Given that Varnish functions way quicker than any hosting server, the loading speed of any website using the accelerator shall grow considerably. Memcached is employed to cache database and API calls and responses between a website visitor and a server, so it is similar to Varnish, but is employed largely for database-driven sites. Since the site will connect to its database significantly less, the overall server load shall be decreased substantially. The third accelerator, Node.js, is used for scalable online programs including chats and booking sites because it processes information in real time the instant it is entered on the webpage by the users. Depending on the package you choose, these accelerators could be available or might be an optional upgrade.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You'll be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the Internet sites hosted within your semi-dedicated hosting account depending on the nature of the website content. Memcached, in particular, caches database requests, therefore it is a superb option for any script application such as WordPress or Joomla. This way, the database web server shall not have to process the same request if many users open a page with the same content. Varnish is similar, but it is a general-purpose accelerator as it caches any sort of content the first time a website visitor opens an Internet site. If that webpage is opened again by the very same visitor, it'll be provided by Varnish at a much higher speed compared to the server. Employing this web accelerator shall minimize the load generated by your sites tremendously. Last, but not least, Node.js will permit you to produce scalable web programs such as hotel booking websites or chats. Its advantage over very similar platforms is that it does not wait for a user to submit a sizable piece of information, but processes whatever the user is typing in real-time. The three web accelerators are available inside the Hepsia CP and you will be able to choose how many instances of each one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they may employ.

Web Accelerators in VPS Hosting

In the event that you choose your virtual private server to be integrated with the Hepsia Control Panel, you shall be able to use Varnish, Memcached and Node.js - 3 of the most widespread web accelerators. Varnish caches websites the first time they're visited and delivers them every time the same person visits them again, which can accelerate any sort of website several times. Memcached is employed for dynamic script programs for example Joomla and WordPress as it caches database requests and responses, therefore the database server will not need to process the exact same page each time visitors open it if the same content should be displayed. Node.js is a platform for developing real-time programs like online games and chats. It operates much faster than similar platforms because it processes the info in small portions all the time and does not wait for users to enter a substantial piece of data that will need more time to be processed. The three web accelerators are provided with all Hepsia-based VPS solutions and include several hundred MBs of dedicated memory.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Web Hosting

If you order a dedicated server from our firm and you opt for Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel, you shall be able to use Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your sites. All packages feature several gigabytes of memory dedicated to these accelerators and the actual amount depends on the package deal you choose. Node.js is employed for scalable online apps like browser games or hotel booking and it processes the information in real time as the user enters it, which makes it much faster than comparable platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you use it for a script-driven Internet site, not only will the website work faster, but also the load on the server will decrease because there shall be considerably less database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it's not at all limited to databases. Instead, it caches entire webpages once a visitor opens them and provides them instead of the hosting server each time the same visitor opens them later. Because Varnish processes web requests considerably faster than any web server, the efficiency of a site using this accelerator can increase as much as 300%.
