A web accelerator is a software application which speeds up a website usually by caching content and supplying it instead of the server. Such programs may be used for both dynamic and static Internet sites because there are different accelerators that can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The benefit of using a web accelerator is that a given Internet site shall perform considerably faster without using more system resources. Just the opposite, such a site will require much less resources to operate because the web accelerator will handle most requests instead of the web server. Contrary to many businesses which don't offer web accelerators with their solutions or offer one, we offer 3 different ones which will allow you to speed up your websites regardless of their style or content.

Web Accelerators in Shared Website Hosting

Our shared website hosting solutions come with three web accelerators that you could employ depending on the websites that you would like to run. Memcached is used to cache database or API calls and responses, which could considerably enhance the performance of dynamic sites. Varnish is a popular HTTP accelerator which caches web pages and provides them to the visitors much faster than the web server after the first time they open them. Node.js is an event-driven platform employed for scalable real-time apps such as booking websites. Based on the hosting package you choose, these 3 programs could already be included or might be optional upgrades. Either way, you shall be able to pick how many instances of every one of them shall be at your disposal and how much memory they should use. These accelerators are provided only by several web hosting service providers, including ours, and they could increase the speed of your web applications drastically.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the sites hosted in your semi-dedicated server account depending on the nature of the website content. Memcached, in particular, caches database requests, therefore it is a superb choice for any script program like WordPress or Joomla. That way, the database hosting server won't have to process the exact same request if many users open a page with the same content. Varnish is similar, but it is a general-purpose accelerator because it caches any sort of content the first time a guest opens a page. If that webpage is opened again by the same guest, it'll be delivered by Varnish at a much better speed compared to the web server. Employing this web accelerator shall minimize the load generated by your Internet sites substantially. Last, but not least, Node.js will permit you to build scalable web applications such as hotel booking Internet sites or chats. Its advantage over comparable platforms is that it doesn't wait for a customer to submit a big piece of data, but processes whatever the user is typing in real-time. The 3 web accelerators are available inside the Hepsia CP and you'll be able to select how many instances of each one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they'll use.

Web Accelerators in VPS Servers

We provide Memcached, Node.js and Varnish with all VPS servers which are obtained with the Hepsia CP. Your server shall also include a few hundred megabytes of dedicated memory for these accelerators and the particular amount depends on the plan that you choose. Memcached is employed for script-driven websites because it caches database responses, as a result decreasing the amount of queries which a script sends to its database. It can be employed for any script such as WordPress or Joomla. Node.js is a powerful platform for developing web programs such as booking Internet sites and chats. The real-time interaction between users and a hosting server is conducted by processing little bits of information as soon any user inputs anything on the site. In comparison, other platforms await customers to input a considerable amount of data before they process it, therefore they work more slowly. Varnish is a multi-purpose accelerator which caches entire web pages and provides them instead of the hosting server at a faster rate. It is also known as an HTTP reverse proxy and it can easily speed up any kind of site.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

If you get a dedicated server from us and you pick Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel, you shall be able to use Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your websites. All plans feature several gigabytes of memory dedicated to these accelerators and the exact amount depends on the package deal that you select. Node.js is employed for scalable online apps including browser games or hotel booking and it processes the data right away as the client enters it, which makes it considerably quicker than similar platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you use it for a script-driven site, not simply will the website speed up, but also the load on the server will decrease since there will be considerably less database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it's not at all limited to databases. Rather, it caches entire webpages once a website visitor opens them and delivers them instead of the web server each time the same visitor opens them later on. As Varnish processes web requests considerably faster than any hosting server, the overall performance of a site using this accelerator may increase nearly 300%.
