A web accelerator is a piece of software that speeds up a website typically by caching content and providing it instead of the hosting server. Such applications may be used for both dynamic and static Internet sites as there are a variety of accelerators that can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The main advantage of employing a web accelerator is that a given Internet site shall perform substantially faster without using more system resources. Quite the opposite, such a website will require significantly less resources to operate because the web accelerator will take care of most requests instead of the hosting server. Contrary to many companies that don't offer web accelerators with their packages or offer only 1, we offer three different ones which will permit you to speed up your sites whatever their style or content.

Web Accelerators in Cloud Hosting

If you acquire one of our cloud hosting plans, you shall have three widely used web accelerators at your disposal and you will 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 significantly speed up any site because it caches the web pages which a website visitor opens for the first time and provides them each time that visitor opens them again. Since Varnish operates much faster than any hosting server, the loading speed of any website using the accelerator will grow noticeably. Memcached is used to cache database and API calls and responses between a site visitor and a server, so it's similar to Varnish, but is used largely for database-driven websites. Considering that the site will connect to its database way less, the overall hosting server load shall be minimized significantly. The 3rd accelerator, Node.js, is employed for scalable online apps such as chats and booking sites as it processes information in real time the moment it is entered on the site by the users. Based on the plan you select, these accelerators could be available or might be an optional upgrade.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

The Hepsia CP that comes with our semi-dedicated server plans will permit you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your Internet sites. Memcached is one of the most famous accelerators as it can effortlessly accelerate any API or database-driven site by caching requests and responses, thus the web server will not need to process identical requests time and time again. The platform is ideal for Internet sites built with programs like Joomla, Mambo or WordPress. Varnish is a highly effective accelerator which caches any type of content and is also known as an HTTP reverse proxy. It caches webpages which are opened by a site visitor for the first time and delivers them each and every time that very same visitor opens them again. Varnish can accelerate a site several times simply because it delivers content faster than any web server. Node.js is a platform employed for scalable real-time programs like chats, web browser games or social networks. It processes data in smaller pieces the moment a user enters something, so it functions faster than similar platforms where users submit big chunks of information which need time to be processed. You could choose the number of instances and the dedicated memory for each and every one of the 3 accelerators via your Control Panel.

Web Accelerators in VPS Servers

If you get a VPS server with the Hepsia CP, you will be able to employ Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your Internet sites. All three accelerators are integrated inside our solutions by default and feature dedicated memory of several hundred MBs. Node.js is employed to develop scalable programs where real-time interaction is necessary - booking sites, online flash games, chats, and so on. It processes the data in small bits as the user is entering it, as a result it operates much faster than other platforms which wait for the end users to submit one big part of information. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator which works as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it in the event that the same website visitor opens the same website again, which could speed any site several times because Varnish functions a lot quicker than any server. Memcached is employed for caching API and database responses, so it is appropriate for script-driven Internet sites like WordPress and Joomla. This web accelerator will be able to minimize the load on your server as it'll lower the number of database queries your websites make.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

In the event that you pick Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel for your new dedicated server, you'll have Memcached, Varnish and Node.js at your disposal for increasing the speed of your Internet sites. Memcached will be able to decrease the load on the hosting server by lowering the queries your script-driven Internet sites make since it caches database responses. This web accelerator is ideal for dynamic websites designed with WordPress, Joomla and comparable scripts. Varnish, which is often called an HTTP reverse proxy, caches entire pages the first time a new website visitor opens them. It could be employed to speed up any type of website as it delivers the cached content considerably faster than the hosting server every time a website visitor opens the same site again. You'll be able to use Node.js for online programs that demand real-time server-client interaction like online chats or booking Internet sites. Different from other platforms that wait for the user to input everything on a form, Node.js processes the information bit by bit as the user fills each box, so it works faster and more efficiently. All dedicated server packages include several gigabytes of memory dedicated to these three web accelerators.
