A web accelerator is a server-side application that speeds up a website. Such a piece of software may operate in different ways based on the website content, but in the general case all such programs cache content and deliver it instead of the server. That is valid for both static and dynamic Internet sites since the cached content could be simple text or database responses and the reward of employing a web accelerator is not only the faster loading site, but also the decreased overall load on the server. This way, you can use a lower-end hosting plan which will also cost less while your site visitors will be able to still enjoy high browsing speeds. Handful of service providers provide web accelerators with their hosting packages and they often offer only one, while we offer 3 different ones that will permit you to boost the performance of any kind of Internet site noticeably.

Web Accelerators in Shared Hosting

If you purchase one of our shared hosting solutions, you will have three popular web accelerators at your disposal and you shall be able to access them directly using the Hepsia CP that is included with our solutions. Varnish is one of the most well-known ones and it can tremendously accelerate any website since it caches the web pages a website visitor opens for the first time and provides them each and every time that website visitor opens them again. Given that Varnish operates much faster than any web server, the loading speed of any site using the accelerator will grow significantly. Memcached is employed to cache database and API calls and responses between an Internet site visitor and a web server, so it's much like Varnish, but is employed largely for database-driven Internet sites. Since the Internet site shall connect to its database significantly less, the overall web server load shall be minimized notably. The last accelerator, Node.js, is used for scalable online applications such as chats and booking Internet sites since it processes info in real time the instant it is entered on the site by the users. Based on the package you select, these accelerators could be available or might be an optional upgrade.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the websites hosted within your semi-dedicated server account depending on the nature of the site content. Memcached, for instance, caches database requests, so it is an excellent option for any script program such as WordPress or Joomla. That way, the database web server will not have to process the exact same request if a number of users open a website with the same content. Varnish is similar, but it's a general-purpose accelerator since it caches any sort of content the first time a guest opens a page. In case that page is opened again by the very same visitor, it shall be delivered by Varnish at a greater speed compared to the web server. Using this web accelerator shall reduce the load created by your websites tremendously. Last, but not least, Node.js shall enable you to create scalable web applications such as hotel booking websites or chats. Its advantage over similar platforms is that it doesn't wait for a user to submit a big piece of information, but processes whatever the client is typing in real-time. The three web accelerators are available inside the Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to choose how many instances of each and every one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they'll use.

Web Accelerators in VPS Servers

If you get a VPS server with the Hepsia CP, you'll be able to employ Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your sites. All 3 accelerators are integrated in our packages by default and offer dedicated memory of several hundred MBs. Node.js is employed to develop scalable programs where real-time interaction is necessary - booking websites, online games, chats, and so on. It processes the info in small bits as the user is entering it, thus it functions quicker than other platforms that wait for the end users to submit one large part of data. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator which functions as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it if the same visitor opens the same page again, which can speed any site several times as Varnish operates a lot quicker than any hosting server. Memcached is employed for caching API and database responses, consequently it is ideal for script-driven sites like WordPress and Joomla. This web accelerator can easily minimize the load on your server because it will decrease the number 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'll have Memcached, Varnish and Node.js readily available for speeding up your websites. Memcached can easily 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 designed with WordPress, Joomla and very similar scripts. Varnish, which is known as an HTTP reverse proxy, caches entire pages the first time a new guest opens them. It can be employed to accelerate any sort of site because it delivers the cached content considerably faster than the hosting server every time a visitor opens the same page again. You could employ Node.js for online programs which call for real-time server-client interaction such as online chats or booking websites. Different from other platforms which await the user to fill everything on a form, Node.js processes the data piece by piece as the user fills each box, so it works faster and more efficiently. All dedicated server plans feature several gigabytes of memory dedicated to these 3 web accelerators.
