A web accelerator is a program which speeds up a site, normally by caching its content. There are different sorts of accelerators, but in the general case this sort of programs cache static content or database responses and supply them instead of the server, therefore increasing the performance of a website noticeably. The latter is possible because accelerator programs work faster than a web server and not only will a site function better, but the server load shall also minimize, which will allow you to run heavy sites with less resources. We provide 3 web accelerators with our hosting solutions, which will enable you to accelerate any kind of site. In comparison, most hosting service providers don't provide any web accelerators or provide one, which limits your choice of web apps in the event that you'd like to employ this type of software.

Web Accelerators in Shared Hosting

In case you purchase one of our shared hosting solutions, you will have three widely used web accelerators at your disposal and you'll be able to access them directly through the Hepsia CP which is included with our solutions. Varnish is one of the most popular ones and it could significantly accelerate any site because it caches the web pages a site visitor opens for the first time and provides them every time that website visitor opens them again. Since Varnish works considerably faster than any web server, the loading speed of any site using the accelerator will increase noticeably. Memcached is used to cache database and API calls and responses between a site visitor and a server, so it's much like Varnish, but is employed mainly for database-driven websites. Because the Internet site will connect to its database much less, the overall server load shall be reduced substantially. The last accelerator, Node.js, is employed for scalable online programs such as chats and booking sites because it processes info in real time the instant it is entered on the webpage by the users. Based on the plan you select, these accelerators could be available or could be an optional upgrade.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

You'll be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the sites hosted inside your semi-dedicated server account based on the nature of the website content. Memcached, for example, caches database requests, therefore it's a superb choice for any script program like WordPress or Joomla. That way, the database hosting server shall not have to process the exact same request if many users open a website with the same content. Varnish is very similar, but it is a general-purpose accelerator as it caches any kind of content the first time a website visitor opens a page. In case that page is opened again by the same visitor, it shall be delivered by Varnish at a much better speed compared to the server. Employing this web accelerator can decrease the load generated by your websites substantially. Last, but not least, Node.js will enable you to produce scalable web programs such as hotel booking Internet sites or chats. Its advantage over similar platforms is that it doesn't wait for a user to submit a large piece of data, but processes whatever the user is typing in real-time. The three web accelerators are available inside the Hepsia CP and you will be able to pick how many instances of each one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they may employ.

Web Accelerators in VPS Servers

We offer Memcached, Node.js and Varnish with all VPS servers that are obtained with the Hepsia Control Panel. Your hosting server will also include a few hundred MBs of dedicated memory for these accelerators and the particular amount depends on the plan that you pick. Memcached is employed for script-driven Internet sites because it caches database responses, as a result reducing the amount of queries that a script sends to its database. It could be employed for any script such as WordPress or Joomla. Node.js is an efficient platform for building web applications such as booking Internet sites and chats. The real-time interaction between users and a hosting server is done by processing little bits of data as soon any user inputs anything on the webpage. In comparison, other platforms await users to input a lot of information before they process it, thus they operate more slowly. Varnish is a multi-purpose accelerator that caches whole pages and provides them instead of the hosting server at a much faster rate. It is also often called an HTTP reverse proxy and it can easily speed up any type of website.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

In case you order a dedicated server from us and you opt for Hepsia as the hosting CP, you will be able to use Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your websites. All solutions include several gigabytes of memory dedicated to those accelerators and the specific amount depends on the package you select. Node.js is employed for scalable online applications like browser games or hotel booking and it processes the data instantly as the user enters it, which makes it much faster than very similar platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you use it for a script-driven Internet site, not only will the site speed up, but also the load on the server will reduce because there will be considerably less database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it's not at all limited to databases. Instead, it caches whole websites once a website visitor opens them and provides them instead of the hosting server each and every time the same visitor opens them afterwards. Because Varnish processes web requests faster than any hosting server, the performance of a website using this accelerator can increase nearly 300%.
