A web accelerator is a software program which speeds up a site generally by caching content and supplying it instead of the web server. Such programs can be used for both dynamic and static sites since there are a variety of accelerators that can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The benefit of using a web accelerator is that a given website shall perform considerably faster without using additional system resources. Quite the opposite, this kind of a site will demand significantly less resources to function because the web accelerator will take care of most requests rather than the server. Unlike many businesses that don't offer web accelerators with their solutions or offer only one, we offer three different ones which will allow you to speed up your Internet sites irrespective of their kind or content.

Web Accelerators in Cloud Hosting

If you buy one of our cloud hosting plans, you shall have 3 widely used web accelerators at your disposal and you shall be able to access them directly using the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with our solutions. Varnish is one of the most popular ones and it can significantly increase the speed of any Internet site as it caches the web pages that a website visitor opens for the first time and delivers them each time that website visitor opens them again. Since Varnish works way quicker than any hosting server, the loading speed of any site using the accelerator shall grow noticeably. Memcached is used to cache database and API calls and responses between an Internet site visitor and a hosting server, so it's comparable to Varnish, but is employed largely for database-driven Internet sites. Because the site will connect to its database much less, the overall web server load will be minimized significantly. The third accelerator, Node.js, is used for scalable online applications including chats and booking websites as it processes data in real time the moment it is entered on the website by the users. Based on the package you select, these accelerators could be available or could be an optional upgrade.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

You shall be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the sites hosted within your semi-dedicated server account depending on the nature of the site content. Memcached, in particular, caches database requests, therefore it is a fantastic option for any script app like WordPress or Joomla. This way, the database server shall not have to process the very same request if a number of users open a site 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 site. If that web page is opened again by the same website visitor, it'll be delivered by Varnish at a much higher speed compared to the web server. Using this web accelerator can decrease the load generated by your sites significantly. Last, but not least, Node.js shall enable you to produce scalable web applications like hotel booking sites or chats. Its advantage over similar platforms is that it does not wait for a customer to submit a substantial piece of information, but processes whatever the customer is entering in real-time. The three web accelerators are available within the Hepsia CP and you shall be able to select how many instances of every one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they may employ.

Web Accelerators in VPS Servers

If you obtain a VPS server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to employ Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your websites. All 3 accelerators are included within our packages by default and offer dedicated memory of a few hundred MBs. Node.js is employed to create scalable apps where real-time interaction is needed - booking sites, online flash games, chats, and so on. It processes the information in smaller bits as the end user is entering it, thus it functions faster than other platforms that wait for the end users to input one sizeable bit of info. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator that operates as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it when the same website visitor opens the same webpage again, which can certainly speed any website several times as Varnish operates more quickly than any web server. Memcached is employed for caching API and database responses, therefore it's appropriate for script-driven Internet sites like WordPress and Joomla. This web accelerator will be able to reduce the load on your server since it'll decrease the number of database queries which your sites make.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

If 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 websites. Memcached can reduce the load on the server by lowering the queries your script-driven sites make because it caches database responses. This web accelerator is good for dynamic sites built with WordPress, Joomla and very similar scripts. Varnish, which is referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy, caches whole webpages the first time a new guest opens them. It may be employed to accelerate any kind of Internet site because it delivers the cached content much faster than the web server any time a guest opens the same page again. You can use Node.js for online applications that call for real-time server-client interaction such as online chats or booking sites. Different from other platforms that wait for the user to fill everything on a form, Node.js processes the data bit by bit as the user fills every box, so it works considerably quicker and more effectively. All dedicated server packages feature several gigabytes of memory dedicated to those three web accelerators.
