A web accelerator is a software application which speeds up a website generally by caching content and providing it instead of the hosting server. Such apps could be used for both dynamic and static Internet sites because there are various accelerators that can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The best thing about using a web accelerator is that a given website will perform substantially faster without using more resources. On the contrary, this kind of a website will require a lesser amount of resources to operate because the web accelerator will take care of most requests instead of the web server. Unlike many companies that don't offer web accelerators with their packages or offer only 1, we offer three different ones that'll permit you to speed up your Internet sites whatever their type or content.

Web Accelerators in Hosting

When you buy one of our hosting packages, you will have three well-known web accelerators at your disposal and you will be able to access them directly through the Hepsia Control Panel which is included with our plans. Varnish is one of the most popular ones and it can significantly increase the speed of any website since it caches the pages which a website visitor opens for the first time and provides them every time that guest opens them again. Because Varnish works noticeably faster than any hosting server, the loading speed of any Internet site using the accelerator will increase considerably. Memcached is employed to cache database and API calls and responses between a visitor and a server, so it is comparable to Varnish, but is used predominantly for database-driven sites. Because the website shall connect to its database a lot less, the overall hosting server load will be reduced significantly. The last accelerator, Node.js, is employed for scalable online apps including chats and booking Internet sites because it processes data in real time the instant it is entered on the site by the users. Depending on the plan you choose, these accelerators might be available or may 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 in your semi-dedicated hosting account in accordance with the nature of the site content. Memcached, in particular, caches database requests, therefore it is a fantastic choice for any script app like WordPress or Joomla. This way, the database server shall not need to process the very same request if a number of users open a webpage with the same content. Varnish is very similar, but it's a general-purpose accelerator as it caches any type of content the first time a website visitor opens a site. If that page is opened again by the same website visitor, it'll be delivered by Varnish at a much higher speed compared to the server. Using this web accelerator can reduce the load generated by your Internet sites drastically. Last, but not least, Node.js shall enable you to produce scalable web apps such as hotel booking websites or chats. Its advantage over very similar platforms is that it doesn't wait for a client to submit a sizable piece of info, but processes whatever the client is entering in real-time. The three web accelerators are available within the Hepsia Control Panel and you'll be able to select how many instances of each one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they can use.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Hosting

Memcached, Node.js and Varnish are provided by default with all of our dedicated servers which are ordered with Hepsia as the hosting CP. These 3 web accelerators feature several gigabytes of dedicated memory and you could use them to speed up any type of site. Memcached can greatly reduce the load on the web server if you have script-driven sites as it caches database responses, thus it lessens the number of database queries that the web server has to deal with. Node.js shall permit you to build scalable apps with real-time user-server interaction like chats or dining booking sites. Its advantage over comparable platforms is that it processes info the instant the user enters it, so all the info is handled quicker and in small portions. Varnish caches whole webpages the first time a website visitor opens them and delivers them each and every time the same visitor opens them again, that makes it a universal accelerator for any sort of websites. As it functions faster than any hosting server, it can speed up a site at least several times and for that reason, Varnish is one of the most widely used web accelerators out there.
