A web accelerator is a server-side application that accelerates an Internet site. Such a piece of software can function in different ways based on the website content, but in the typical case all such applications cache content and deliver it instead of the server. This is valid for both static and dynamic websites because the cached content may be simple text or database responses and the benefit of employing a web accelerator is not only the faster loading Internet site, but also the reduced overall load on the server. That way, you'll be able to employ a lower-end hosting plan that will also cost less while your site visitors will be able to still enjoy superior browsing speeds. Handful of firms offer web accelerators with their hosting plans and they often offer just 1, while we offer 3 different ones which will permit you to improve the performance of any sort of website tremendously.

Web Accelerators in Shared Web Hosting

We provide three of the most well-known web accelerators with our shared web hosting services and depending on what plan you'll pick when you sign up, they could already be available or they could be an optional upgrade. Varnish is the most widely used one of them and it can be employed for any kind of Internet site. It caches the web pages the first time a visitor opens them and provides them at a considerably faster speed compared to the web server every time that a visitor opens them again. Memcached is used to cache API and database calls, so it can easily boost the speed of dynamic sites such as online stores, community forums or social networks. Node.js is used for scalable web apps and it operates in real-time, which makes it excellent for server-side data processing - chats, browser games, booking portals, etc. You will be able to pick what amount of memory these accelerators shall use and how many instances of each one will run from your Hepsia website hosting CP.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

The Hepsia Control Panel which is provided with our semi-dedicated server plans shall permit you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your Internet sites. Memcached is one of the most famous accelerators because it can increase the speed of any API or database-driven Internet site by caching requests and responses, as a result the web server will not need to process identical requests again and again. The platform is perfect for websites designed with programs such as Joomla, Mambo or WordPress. Varnish is a highly effective accelerator which caches any sort of content and is also often called an HTTP reverse proxy. It caches webpages which are opened by a visitor for the first time and delivers them each and every time that same site visitor opens them again. Varnish can easily accelerate a website several times simply because it delivers content faster than any server. Node.js is a platform used for scalable real-time apps such as chats, Internet browser games or social networks. It processes data in small parts the moment a user enters anything, so it works considerably faster than similar platforms where users submit massive pieces of information which need time to be processed. You'll be able to choose the number of instances and the dedicated memory for each and every one of the 3 accelerators using your Control Panel.

Web Accelerators in VPS Servers

In the event that you obtain a VPS server with the Hepsia CP, you shall be able to employ Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your sites. All 3 accelerators are integrated in our plans by default and offer dedicated memory of a few hundred MBs. Node.js is used to build scalable programs where real-time interaction is required - booking websites, online flash games, chats, and so on. It processes the information in small portions as the end user is entering it, thus it operates much faster than other platforms that wait for the end users to enter one big bit of data. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator that functions as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it when the same guest opens the same webpage again, which can easily speed any site several times because Varnish works faster than any server. Memcached is employed for caching API and database responses, consequently it's appropriate for script-driven sites like WordPress and Joomla. This web accelerator can minimize the load on your web server because it will reduce the amount of database queries that your websites make.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

If you choose Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel for your new dedicated server, you shall have Memcached, Varnish and Node.js available for accelerating your sites. Memcached will be able to minimize the load on the web server by lowering the queries your script-driven sites make as it caches database responses. This web accelerator is ideal for dynamic Internet sites developed with WordPress, Joomla and similar scripts. Varnish, which is often called an HTTP reverse proxy, caches entire pages the first time a new guest opens them. It could be used to accelerate any type of site since it provides the cached content considerably faster than the hosting server every time a visitor opens the same site again. You'll be able to employ Node.js for online apps that demand real-time server-client interaction including online chats or booking sites. In contrast to other platforms which await the user to input everything on a form, Node.js processes the information gradually as the user fills each box, so it operates considerably quicker and more effectively. All dedicated server plans come with several gigabytes of memory dedicated to those 3 web accelerators.
