A web accelerator is a software application which speeds up a website generally by caching content and supplying it instead of the web server. Such applications could be used for both dynamic and static sites as there are different accelerators that can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The best thing about using a web accelerator is that a given Internet site will perform considerably faster without employing more system resources. Quite the opposite, such a website will need a lesser amount of resources to function because the web accelerator will deal with most requests rather than the web server. Unlike many companies that don't offer web accelerators with their plans or offer one, we offer three different ones that'll enable you to speed up your Internet sites whatever their style or content.

Web Accelerators in Web Hosting

We offer three of the most well-known web accelerators with our web hosting packages and based upon 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 popular one of them and it could be employed for any sort of website. It caches the pages the first time a site visitor opens them and delivers them at a considerably faster speed compared to the server each 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 websites including online stores, community forums or social networks. Node.js is employed for scalable web programs and it functions in real-time, which makes it perfect for server-side data processing - chats, browser games, booking portals, and so on. You shall be able to choose just how much 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

You will be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the websites hosted inside your semi-dedicated server account in accordance with the nature of the site content. Memcached, in particular, caches database requests, so it is a superb choice for any script app like WordPress or Joomla. This way, the database web server shall not have to process the same request if multiple users open a website with the same content. Varnish is similar, but it is a general-purpose accelerator as it caches any sort of content the first time a guest opens a site. If this web page is opened again by the same guest, it shall be delivered by Varnish at a greater speed compared to the server. Using this web accelerator can lessen the load created by your sites drastically. Last, but not least, Node.js shall permit you to create scalable web applications such as hotel booking websites or chats. Its advantage over comparable platforms is that it does not wait for a customer to submit a sizable piece of info, but processes whatever the user is entering in real-time. The three web accelerators are available inside the Hepsia Control Panel and you'll be able to pick how many instances of each one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they can use.

Web Accelerators in VPS Servers

All VPS servers which are set up with the Hepsia Control Panel come with Varnish, Memcached and Node.js already included and you will have several hundred MBs of dedicated memory for them by default. Varnish, that's also referred to 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 won't need to perform any action. Since Varnish works much faster than any hosting server, a website employing this accelerator will operate several times faster. Memcached is a platform that caches database calls and responses and it's used for WordPress, Joomla and other script-driven programs that store their content within a database. Node.js is a powerful platform for building scalable web apps. Any info on a website which uses Node.js is processed instantly, making it a great choice for dining and accommodation booking Internet sites, web-based chats, web browser games, etcetera.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

In the event that you acquire a dedicated server from our firm and you choose Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel, you shall be able to employ Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your websites. All solutions include several gigabytes of memory dedicated to these accelerators and the specific amount depends on the package you select. Node.js is used for scalable online applications such as browser games or hotel booking and it processes the info right away as the client enters it, which makes it faster than very similar platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you employ it for a script-driven Internet site, not only will the website work faster, but also the load on the web server will decline since there will be fewer database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it isn't limited to databases. Rather, it caches entire webpages once a guest opens them and delivers them instead of the server every time the same visitor opens them afterwards. Since Varnish processes web requests considerably faster than any hosting server, the overall performance of a site using this accelerator may increase up to 300%.
