A web accelerator is a software that accelerates a website, usually by caching its content. There are various kinds of accelerators, but in the typical case such applications cache static content or database responses and provide them in lieu of the hosting server, hence increasing the performance of an Internet site considerably. The latter is possible because accelerator applications work faster than a server and not only will a website work better, but the server load shall also lessen, which will enable you to run heavy websites with less resources. We offer three web accelerators with our hosting plans, which will enable you to accelerate any kind of website. In comparison, most web hosting service providers do not offer any web accelerators or offer only 1, which limits your choice of web apps in the event that you would like to use this kind of software.

Web Accelerators in Hosting

If you get one of our hosting solutions, you shall have 3 popular web accelerators at your disposal and you shall be able to access them directly through the Hepsia Control Panel that is included with our solutions. Varnish is one of the most popular ones and it can greatly accelerate any website because it caches the pages which a site visitor opens for the first time and delivers them every time that guest opens them again. Because Varnish functions way quicker than any server, the loading speed of any website using the accelerator will raise substantially. Memcached is employed to cache database and API calls and responses between a website visitor and a web server, so it is much like Varnish, but is employed predominantly for database-driven websites. Since the website will connect to its database much less, the overall web server load shall be reduced significantly. The last accelerator, Node.js, is employed for scalable online apps such as chats and booking Internet sites since it processes data in real time the instant it is entered on the site by the users. Based on the plan you choose, these accelerators might be available or may be an optional upgrade.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you pick one of our semi-dedicated hosting packages, you will be able to work with Varnish, Memcached and Node.js - three efficient web accelerators. Varnish is a multi-purpose app which caches web pages the first time a site visitor opens them and delivers them instead of the hosting server if the visitor opens them again nearly 300% more quickly. Memcached caches API and database calls and responses to ensure the server doesn't have to process every request, that makes it ideal for database-driven sites, for instance ones designed with Joomla or WordPress. Node.js is used to develop web applications which work in real-time such as chats or accommodation booking portals and it processes each and every bit of information as soon as the user enters it instead of waiting for large chunks of info to be accumulated. The Hepsia CP which comes with our semi-dedicated packages will permit you to pick how many instances of every accelerator shall work at a time and the amount of memory they'll use.

Web Accelerators in VPS

In case you get a virtual private server with the Hepsia CP, you will be able to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your Internet sites. All three accelerators are incorporated inside our solutions by default and come with dedicated memory of a few hundred MBs. Node.js is used to build scalable programs where real-time interaction is needed - booking sites, online games, chats, and so forth. It processes the data in small pieces as the user is entering it, thus it operates much faster than other platforms which wait for the end users to submit one sizeable bit of information. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator that functions as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it when the same site visitor opens the same website again, which can certainly speed any site several times since Varnish works quicker than any server. Memcached is used for caching API and database responses, so it is suitable for script-driven websites such as WordPress and Joomla. This web accelerator will be able to minimize the load on your server because it shall reduce the amount of database queries which your Internet sites make.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Hosting

Memcached, Varnish and Node.js are available with all dedicated servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and in accordance with the package deal you select, you will also have several gbs of dedicated memory for them. Memcached shall minimize the web server load by lowering the number of queries which have to be addressed since it caches database calls and responses. You will be able to use it on every site which uses an API or a database - as an illustration, any website developed with WordPress or Joomla. Varnish could enhance the performance of any kind of website by caching whole webpages the first time a visitor opens them. The accelerator delivers the webpages if the same visitor opens them afterwards and since it does that faster than the web server, the website visitor will be able to surf your website at least a few times faster. For this reason Varnish is sometimes called an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is an innovative platform which will enable you to develop booking websites, web chats and other programs in which real-time server-user interaction is needed. It processes the info in tiny portions as the client fills different boxes and does not wait for all boxes to be filled and processed as one sizeable chunk of information, which makes Node.js much faster than similar applications.
