A web accelerator is an application that accelerates a website, usually by caching its content. There are many types of accelerators, but in the typical case this sort of apps cache static content or database responses and provide them in place of the web server, as a consequence increasing the performance of an Internet site significantly. The latter can be done because accelerator apps work faster than a web server and not simply will an Internet site work better, but the server load will also decline, which will enable you to run heavy websites with less resources. We provide 3 web accelerators with our hosting plans, which will allow you to increase the speed of any sort of website. In comparison, most web hosting companies don't provide any web accelerators or offer one, which limits your choice of web applications in case you would like to use this type of software.

Web Accelerators in Hosting

If you purchase one of our hosting solutions, you will have 3 well-known web accelerators at your disposal and you will be able to access them directly via the Hepsia CP that comes with our solutions. Varnish is one of the most well-known ones and it can tremendously speed up any website because it caches the pages a site visitor opens for the first time and delivers them every time that guest opens them again. Because Varnish works considerably faster than any server, the loading speed of any site using the accelerator will improve noticeably. Memcached is employed to cache database and API calls and responses between a site visitor and a web server, so it's comparable to Varnish, but is used primarily for database-driven Internet sites. Since the website shall connect to its database way less, the overall web server load shall be minimized significantly. The last accelerator, Node.js, is employed for scalable online apps such as chats and booking websites since it processes data in real time the instant it is entered on the website by the users. Dependant upon 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 Internet sites hosted within your semi-dedicated server account in accordance with the nature of the site content. Memcached, for instance, caches database requests, therefore it is a fantastic option for any script program such as WordPress or Joomla. That way, the database server will not need to process the exact same request if a number of users open a site with the same content. Varnish is very similar, but it's a general-purpose accelerator as it caches any type of content the first time a guest opens a site. In case this webpage is opened again by the exact same visitor, it shall be delivered by Varnish at a much higher speed compared to the server. Using this web accelerator will reduce the load generated by your websites significantly. Last, but not least, Node.js shall allow you to produce scalable web apps such as hotel booking websites or chats. Its advantage over comparable platforms is that it doesn't wait for a user to submit a sizable piece of info, but processes whatever the customer is entering in real-time. The three web accelerators are available in the Hepsia Control Panel and you'll be able to pick how many instances of every one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they may employ.

Web Accelerators in VPS Servers

In the event that you choose your VPS server to be integrated with the Hepsia CP, you shall be able to use Varnish, Memcached and Node.js - 3 of the most widespread web accelerators. Varnish caches sites the first time they're visited and delivers them each time the same person visits them again, which will boost any type of Internet site several times. Memcached is employed for dynamic script apps for instance Joomla and WordPress because it caches database requests and responses, thus the database hosting server won't need to process the very same website every time guests open it if the same content should be shown. Node.js is a platform for creating real-time programs for instance online games and chats. It functions much quicker than similar platforms as it processes the info in little portions all the time and doesn't wait for users to input a large piece of data which shall require more time to be processed. The three web accelerators are provided with all Hepsia-based VPS solutions and feature several hundred megabytes of dedicated memory.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

If you get a dedicated server from our firm and you choose Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel, you will be able to employ Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your websites. All plans feature several gigabytes of memory dedicated to these accelerators and the specific amount depends on the package deal that you select. Node.js is employed for scalable online apps like browser games or hotel booking and it processes the information in real time as the user enters it, which makes it considerably faster than similar platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you employ it for a script-driven site, not only will the Internet site speed up, but also the load on the server will minimize because there will be less database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it's not at all limited to databases. Instead, it caches whole webpages once a guest opens them and delivers them instead of the hosting server every time the same visitor opens them later. Because Varnish processes web requests much quicker than any web server, the overall performance of a site using this accelerator could increase up to 300%.
