A web accelerator is a program that accelerates a site, usually by caching its content. There are different kinds of accelerators, but in the general case this kind of apps cache static content or database responses and provide them in lieu of the web server, therefore enhancing the performance of a website significantly. The latter is achievable because accelerator applications work faster than a server and not simply will a website operate better, but the server load shall also decline, which will permit you to run heavy websites with less system resources. We offer three web accelerators with our hosting solutions, which will allow you to accelerate any sort of site. In comparison, most Internet hosting companies don't offer any web accelerators or offer only one, which limits your choice of web applications if you'd like to employ this type of software.

Web Accelerators in Cloud Web Hosting

In case you acquire one of our cloud web hosting solutions, you shall have 3 widely used web accelerators at your disposal and you shall be able to access them directly using the Hepsia CP that comes with our solutions. Varnish is one of the most well-known ones and it can tremendously increase the speed of any website since it caches the pages that a website visitor opens for the first time and delivers them each time that website visitor opens them again. Since Varnish functions much faster than any server, the loading speed of any Internet site using the accelerator will improve considerably. Memcached is employed to cache database and API calls and responses between an Internet site visitor and a hosting server, so it is comparable to Varnish, but is employed primarily for database-driven Internet sites. Because the Internet site will connect to its database way less, the overall server load shall be reduced substantially. The 3rd accelerator, Node.js, is employed for scalable online apps including chats and booking websites since it processes information in real time the instant it is entered on the website by the users. Dependant upon the package you select, these accelerators might be available or could be an optional upgrade.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server plans will enable you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js - three of the most effective web accelerators available. Memcached is used to cache database and API calls and responses, thus it could easily accelerate any script-driven site. You could use it for any website developed with WordPress or Joomla, for instance. Varnish is also known as an HTTP reverse proxy and it is a general-purpose caching platform which may be used for any sort of sites. Based on the content, it can easily increase the performance of a website close to 300%. Node.js is a sophisticated system used to develop scalable Internet applications which process information in real time for instance booking portals. Its advantage is that different from similar platforms, it processes info constantly and in small parts instead of waiting for the user to submit one sizeable piece of data. The accelerators can be enabled for any Internet site via the Hepsia Control Panel and you'll be able to pick how many instances of each one of them will work and how much memory they shall use.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

In case you buy a dedicated server from us and you pick Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel, you'll be able to use Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your Internet sites. All solutions come with several gigabytes of memory dedicated to these accelerators and the actual amount depends on the plan that you choose. Node.js is used for scalable online programs such as browser games or hotel booking and it processes the data instantly as the client enters it, which makes it much quicker than very similar platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you employ it for a script-driven website, not simply will the Internet site work faster, but also the load on the web server will decline since there will be less database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it isn't limited to databases. Rather, it caches entire websites once a website visitor opens them and provides them instead of the server each and every time the same visitor opens them later on. Because Varnish processes web requests much faster than any server, the performance of a site using this accelerator could increase nearly 300%.
