A web accelerator is a program which speeds up a website, typically by caching its content. There are many kinds of accelerators, but in the general case such apps cache static content or database responses and provide them instead of the hosting server, thus enhancing the performance of an Internet site considerably. The latter is achievable because accelerator apps work faster than a hosting server and not only will an Internet site work better, but the server load shall also lessen, which will enable you to run heavy Internet sites with less system resources. We provide 3 web accelerators with our hosting packages, which will permit you to increase the speed of any sort of Internet site. In comparison, most Internet hosting businesses don't offer any web accelerators or provide only one, which limits your choice of web apps if you would like to employ this kind of software.

Web Accelerators in Cloud Website Hosting

We offer three of the most popular web accelerators along with our cloud website hosting packages and based on what plan you will select when you sign up, they could already be available or they could be an optional upgrade. Varnish is the most well-known one of them and it could be used for any sort of site. It caches the pages the first time a site visitor opens them and provides them at a faster speed compared to the web server every time that a website visitor opens them again. Memcached is used to cache API and database calls, so it can easily increase the speed of dynamic Internet sites like online stores, forums or social networks. Node.js is employed for scalable web apps and it functions in real-time, which makes it excellent for server-side data processing - chats, browser games, booking portals, etcetera. You shall be able to pick how much memory these accelerators shall employ and how many instances of each and every one will run from your Hepsia website hosting CP.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

You'll be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the sites hosted within your semi-dedicated server account based on the nature of the website content. Memcached, in particular, caches database requests, therefore it's an excellent choice for any script application like WordPress or Joomla. This way, the database hosting server won't have to process the exact same request if multiple users open a website with the same content. Varnish is comparable, but it's a general-purpose accelerator because it caches any kind of content the first time a website visitor opens a page. If that webpage is opened again by the exact same visitor, it'll be provided by Varnish at a much better speed compared to the web server. Using this web accelerator shall minimize the load created by your Internet sites significantly. Last, but not least, Node.js shall permit you to build scalable web applications such as hotel booking websites or chats. Its advantage over comparable platforms is that it doesn't wait for a user to submit a large piece of information, but processes whatever the customer is typing in real-time. The three web accelerators are available within the Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to choose how many instances of each and every one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they'll use.

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'll get several hundred MBs of dedicated memory for them by default. Varnish, that is also referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy, caches pages the first time a guest opens them and provides them in case that guest opens them again, therefore the web server won't have to perform any action. Since Varnish works much faster than any hosting server, an Internet site using this accelerator will operate several times quicker. Memcached is a platform which caches database calls and responses and it is employed for WordPress, Joomla and other script-driven apps that store their content inside a database. Node.js is an efficient platform for developing scalable web applications. Any info on a site that uses Node.js is processed right away, making it a great choice for dining and accommodation booking sites, web-based chats, Internet browser games, etcetera.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

Memcached, Node.js and Varnish are offered by default with all our dedicated servers that are ordered with Hepsia as the website hosting CP. These 3 web accelerators come with several gigabytes of dedicated memory and you can use them to speed up any sort of website. Memcached can drastically minimize the load on the hosting server if you have script-driven Internet sites since it caches database responses, so it minimizes the number of database queries that the server has to handle. Node.js shall permit you to build scalable applications with real-time user-server interaction such as chats or dining booking sites. Its advantage over comparable platforms is that it processes information as soon as the user enters it, so all the info is managed quicker and in small parts. Varnish caches entire webpages the first time a website visitor opens them and delivers them every time the same website visitor opens them again, that makes it a universal accelerator for any kind of sites. Because it operates faster than any hosting server, it can easily speed up a site at least several times and due to this fact, Varnish is one of the most widely used web accelerators available on the market.
