A web accelerator is a server-side program which accelerates a site. Such a piece of software can work in different ways depending on the site content, but in the general case all such applications cache content and deliver it instead of the hosting server. That is valid for both dynamic and static sites as the cached content could be simple text or database responses and the benefit of employing a web accelerator isn't just the faster loading site, but also the smaller overall load on the server. That way, you could use a lower-end hosting package that will also cost less while your visitors could still enjoy superior browsing speeds. Several firms provide web accelerators with their hosting packages and they usually offer only one, while we offer three different ones that'll allow you to boost the performance of any kind of Internet site tremendously.

Web Accelerators in Shared Hosting

We provide three of the most well-known web accelerators together with our shared hosting packages and based on what plan you shall pick when you sign up, they could already be available or they may be an optional upgrade. Varnish is the most widely used one of them and it could be used for any type of website. It caches the pages the first time a website visitor opens them and delivers them at a faster speed compared to the server every time that a website visitor opens them again. Memcached is employed to cache API and database calls, so it can easily boost the speed of dynamic Internet sites like online stores, forums or social networks. Node.js is employed for scalable web applications and it operates in real-time, which makes it excellent for server-side data processing - chats, browser games, booking portals, and so on. You shall be able to pick the amount of memory these accelerators shall use and how many instances of each one will run from your Hepsia hosting CP.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you go for one of our semi-dedicated server packages, you shall be able to take advantage of Varnish, Memcached and Node.js - 3 effective web accelerators. Varnish is a multi-purpose app that caches web pages the first time a site visitor opens them and delivers them instead of the hosting server if the site visitor opens them again nearly 300% more quickly. Memcached caches API and database calls and responses to ensure the hosting server doesn't have to process every request, which makes it perfect for database-driven sites, for instance ones developed with Joomla or WordPress. Node.js is employed to develop web programs which work in real-time like chats or accommodation booking portals and it processes every bit of info the moment the user enters it instead of waiting for massive chunks of information to be accumulated. The Hepsia Control Panel that comes with our semi-dedicated plans shall enable you to pick how many instances of each and every accelerator will work at a time and just how much memory they will use.

Web Accelerators in VPS Servers

We provide Memcached, Node.js and Varnish with all VPS servers that are purchased with the Hepsia Control Panel. Your hosting server shall also feature a few hundred MBs of dedicated memory for these accelerators and the specific amount depends on the plan that you pick. Memcached is used for script-driven websites because it caches database responses, as a result decreasing the number of queries a script sends to its database. It can be employed for any script such as WordPress or Joomla. Node.js is a highly effective platform for creating web apps including booking sites and chats. The real-time interaction between end users and a hosting server is carried out by processing small pieces of data as soon any user enters anything on the website. In comparison, other platforms await users to enter a lot of information before they process it, thus they work slowly. Varnish is a multi-purpose accelerator that caches entire web pages and provides them instead of the server at a much faster rate. It is also referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy and it can easily speed up any type of Internet site.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

Memcached, Varnish and Node.js are available with all dedicated servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and in accordance with the plan that you select, you'll also have several gigabytes of dedicated memory for them. Memcached shall reduce the hosting server load by lowering the amount of queries that have to be taken care of as it caches database calls and responses. You shall be able to use it on any website that uses an API or a database - for example, any site created with WordPress or Joomla. Varnish can easily enhance the performance of any sort of website by caching whole pages the first time a guest opens them. The accelerator provides the webpages if the same visitor opens them later on and because it does that faster than the server, the visitor will be able to browse your site at least a couple of times faster. That is why Varnish is often called an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is a sophisticated platform which will allow you to develop booking websites, web chats and other apps in which real-time server-user interaction is needed. It processes the info in little portions as the client fills different boxes and does not wait for all boxes to be filled and processed as one sizeable piece of data, which makes Node.js much faster than similar programs.
