A web accelerator is a server-side program which accelerates a website. Such a piece of software may operate in different ways depending on the site content, but in the general case all such programs cache content and deliver it instead of the web server. That's valid for both static and dynamic sites since the cached content may be simple text or database responses and the reward of employing a web accelerator is not just the faster loading website, but also the lessened overall load on the web server. That way, you can employ a lower-end hosting package that'll also cost less while your website visitors could still enjoy superior browsing speeds. Handful of firms offer web accelerators with their hosting packages and they frequently offer only 1, while we offer three different ones that'll allow you to enhance the performance of any type of website significantly.

Web Accelerators in Shared Hosting

In case you acquire one of our shared hosting plans, you'll have 3 well-known web accelerators at your disposal and you will be able to access them directly through the Hepsia CP that is included with our plans. Varnish is one of the most widely used ones and it can greatly speed up any site since it caches the web pages a website visitor opens for the first time and delivers them each and every time that website visitor opens them again. Given that Varnish works considerably faster than any web server, the loading speed of any site using the accelerator will grow substantially. Memcached is employed to cache database and API calls and responses between a website visitor and a hosting server, so it is similar to Varnish, but is employed predominantly for database-driven Internet sites. Considering that the website shall connect to its database way less, the overall server load shall be minimized significantly. The last accelerator, Node.js, is used for scalable online applications such as chats and booking websites as it processes information in real time as soon as it is entered on the site by the users. Based on the plan you choose, these accelerators may be available or might be an optional upgrade.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you choose one of our semi-dedicated server plans, you will be able to use Varnish, Memcached and Node.js - three powerful web accelerators. Varnish is a multi-purpose app which caches webpages the first time a visitor opens them and provides them instead of the web server if the visitor opens them again approximately 300% more quickly. Memcached caches API and database calls and responses so the hosting server does not need to process each and every request, which makes it ideal for database-driven Internet sites, for instance ones designed with Joomla or WordPress. Node.js is used to produce web apps that function in real-time such as chats or accommodation booking sites and it processes each and every bit of information the moment the user enters it rather than waiting for large pieces of data to be accumulated. The Hepsia Control Panel that is included with our semi-dedicated packages shall permit you to pick how many instances of each and every accelerator will work at a time and just how much memory they'll use.

Web Accelerators in VPS Servers

All VPS servers that are integrated with the Hepsia CP come with Varnish, Memcached and Node.js already included and you will have several hundred megabytes of dedicated memory for them by default. Varnish, which is also known as an HTTP reverse proxy, caches webpages the first time a guest opens them and provides them when that visitor opens them again, so the server will not need to perform any action. As Varnish operates much quicker than any hosting server, a site employing this accelerator will function several times swifter. Memcached is a platform which caches database calls and responses and it's used for WordPress, Joomla and other script-driven applications that store their content inside a database. Node.js is an efficient platform for creating scalable web apps. Any data on an Internet site which uses Node.js is processed right away, which makes it an excellent choice for dining and accommodation booking sites, web-based chats, browser games, and so on.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

In the event that you pick Hepsia as the hosting CP for your new dedicated server, you will have Memcached, Varnish and Node.js at your disposal for increasing the speed of your sites. Memcached will be able to decrease the load on the server by lowering the queries your script-driven sites make since it caches database responses. This web accelerator is perfect for dynamic Internet sites created with WordPress, Joomla and comparable scripts. Varnish, which is known as an HTTP reverse proxy, caches entire websites the first time a new visitor opens them. It could be used to accelerate any kind of website as it provides the cached content faster than the server any time a guest opens the same webpage again. You can employ Node.js for online apps which demand real-time server-client interaction such as online chats or booking Internet sites. In contrast to other platforms that await the user to enter everything on a form, Node.js processes the data little by little as the user fills each and every box, so it functions much faster and more efficiently. All dedicated server packages include several gigabytes of memory dedicated to these 3 web accelerators.
