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 apps can be used for both static and dynamic sites since there are various accelerators that can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The main advantage of employing a web accelerator is that a given site shall perform noticeably faster without employing more resources. Just the opposite, this type of a site will demand a lesser amount of resources to function since the web accelerator will tackle most requests instead of the server. In contrast to many businesses that don't offer web accelerators with their packages or offer only one, we offer three different ones which will enable you to speed up your websites whatever their kind or content.

Web Accelerators in Shared Website Hosting

If you get one of our shared website hosting packages, you shall have 3 well-known web accelerators at your disposal and you'll be able to access them directly via the Hepsia Control Panel that is included with our packages. Varnish is one of the most widely used ones and it can considerably accelerate any site as it caches the web pages that a website visitor opens for the first time and provides them every time that guest opens them again. Since Varnish functions considerably faster than any hosting server, the loading speed of any Internet site using the accelerator shall increase significantly. Memcached is employed to cache database and API calls and responses between a site visitor and a hosting server, so it's comparable to Varnish, but is used predominantly for database-driven sites. Because the Internet site will connect to its database a lot less, the overall server load shall be reduced notably. The last accelerator, Node.js, is employed for scalable online applications such as chats and booking Internet sites since it processes info in real time as soon as it is entered on the website by the users. Depending on the plan you choose, these accelerators could be available or may be an optional upgrade.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server plans shall allow you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js - 3 of the most efficient web accelerators available on the market. Memcached is used to cache database and API calls and responses, therefore it can boost any script-driven Internet site. You may use it for any site created with WordPress or Joomla, for example. Varnish is also known as an HTTP reverse proxy and it is a general-purpose caching platform which may be employed for any kind of sites. Based on the content, it can easily improve the performance of an Internet site roughly 300%. Node.js is a sophisticated system used to develop scalable Internet programs which process data in real time such as booking portals. Its advantage is that different from comparable platforms, it processes information consistently and in small parts rather than waiting for the user to submit one big chunk of data. The accelerators may be enabled for any website via the Hepsia CP and you shall be able to select how many instances of each of them will work and how much memory they will employ.

Web Accelerators in VPS Servers

All VPS servers which are integrated with the Hepsia CP come with Varnish, Memcached and Node.js already included and you shall get several hundred MBs of dedicated memory for them by default. Varnish, that is also known as an HTTP reverse proxy, caches webpages the first time a site visitor opens them and delivers them when that visitor opens them again, therefore the hosting server won't need to perform any action. As Varnish functions much quicker than any web server, a website employing this accelerator shall operate several times swifter. Memcached is a platform that caches database calls and responses and it is used for WordPress, Joomla and other script-driven applications which store their content inside a database. Node.js is an efficient platform for building scalable web applications. Any info on a website which employs Node.js is processed in real time, which makes it a great choice for dining and accommodation booking sites, web-based chats, web browser games, and so on.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

If you obtain a dedicated server from our company and you opt for Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel, you shall be able to employ Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your websites. All packages include several gigabytes of memory dedicated to these accelerators and the actual amount depends on the package that you select. Node.js is used for scalable online applications like browser games or hotel booking and it processes the info immediately as the client enters it, which makes it considerably quicker than very similar 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 hosting server will reduce because there shall be less database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it's not at all limited to databases. Instead, it caches whole web pages once a visitor opens them and delivers them instead of the server whenever the same visitor opens them later. Due to the fact that Varnish processes web requests much faster than any server, the efficiency of a website using this accelerator may increase up to 300%.
