A web accelerator is a software application that accelerates a website typically by caching content and providing it instead of the hosting server. Such apps may be employed for both static and dynamic sites because there are different accelerators which can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The best thing about using a web accelerator is that a given site shall perform considerably faster without employing additional system resources. On the contrary, this kind of a website will need a lesser amount of resources to function since the web accelerator will handle most requests instead of the hosting server. In contrast to many firms that don't offer web accelerators with their plans or offer only one, we offer 3 different ones that'll enable you to speed up your Internet sites irrespective of their type or content.

Web Accelerators in Shared Hosting

We offer 3 of the most popular web accelerators along with our shared hosting services and based on what plan you shall select when you sign up, they could already be available or they might be an optional upgrade. Varnish is the most well-known one of them and it can be used for any kind of Internet site. It caches the pages the first time a site visitor opens them and delivers them at a much faster speed compared to the hosting 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 websites like online stores, discussion boards or social networks. Node.js is used for scalable web applications and it functions in real-time, which makes it excellent for server-side data processing - chats, browser games, booking portals, etcetera. You shall be able to select just how much memory these accelerators will employ and how many instances of each and every one shall run from your Hepsia Internet hosting Control Panel.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You shall be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the sites hosted in your semi-dedicated hosting account depending on the nature of the website content. Memcached, for example, caches database requests, so it is an excellent option for any script application like WordPress or Joomla. This way, the database server shall not have to process exactly the same request if many users open a website with the same content. Varnish is similar, but it's a general-purpose accelerator as it caches any type of content the first time a website visitor opens a site. If that page is opened again by the very same guest, it will be provided by Varnish at a much better speed compared to the server. Employing this web accelerator shall decrease the load created by your websites tremendously. Last, but not least, Node.js will enable you to create scalable web apps like hotel booking sites or chats. Its advantage over very similar platforms is that it does not wait for a client to submit a substantial piece of information, but processes whatever the client is entering in real-time. The three web accelerators are available in the Hepsia CP and you'll be able to pick how many instances of every one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they'll use.

Web Accelerators in VPS Hosting

In case you get a virtual private server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to employ Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your sites. All 3 accelerators are incorporated inside our packages by default and offer dedicated memory of several hundred MBs. Node.js is used to develop scalable programs where real-time interaction is required - booking websites, online flash games, chats, etcetera. It processes the information in smaller parts as the user is entering it, thus it functions much faster than other platforms that wait for the users to submit one massive part of information. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator that works as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it in case the same website visitor opens the same website again, which can certainly speed any Internet site several times since Varnish functions more quickly than any server. Memcached is used for caching API and database responses, so it's ideal for script-driven sites like WordPress and Joomla. This web accelerator will be able to minimize the load on your server as it will reduce the number of database queries your sites make.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Web Hosting

Memcached, Node.js and Varnish are provided by default with all our dedicated servers that are ordered with Hepsia as the Internet hosting Control Panel. These three web accelerators feature several gigabytes of dedicated memory and you could employ them to speed up any kind of site. Memcached can significantly minimize the load on the web server if you have script-driven sites since it caches database responses, thus it minimizes the number of database queries the hosting server has to take care of. Node.js shall allow you to develop scalable apps with real-time user-server interaction such as chats or dining booking Internet sites. Its advantage over similar platforms is that it processes info as soon as the end user enters it, so all the information is handled faster and in small portions. Varnish caches whole pages the first time a visitor opens them and delivers them each and every time the same website visitor opens them again, which makes it a universal accelerator for any kind of Internet sites. As it operates quicker than any web server, it can speed up a website at least several times and as a result, Varnish is amongst the most widely used web accelerators on the market.
