A web accelerator is a piece of software which speeds up an Internet site typically by caching content and delivering it instead of the web server. Such programs may be used for both static and dynamic sites as there are various accelerators which can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The main advantage of using a web accelerator is that a given Internet site will perform noticeably faster without employing more system resources. Quite the opposite, this kind of a website will need a lesser amount of resources to operate as the web accelerator will deal with most requests rather than the web server. In contrast to many businesses which do not offer web accelerators with their solutions or offer only 1, we offer 3 different ones which will enable you to speed up your sites irrespective of their style or content.

Web Accelerators in Shared Hosting

In case you acquire one of our shared hosting packages, you shall have 3 popular web accelerators at your disposal and you'll be able to access them directly using the Hepsia Control Panel which is included with our packages. Varnish is one of the most widely used ones and it can significantly increase the speed of any Internet site since it caches the pages a site visitor opens for the first time and provides them every time that visitor opens them again. Given that Varnish works much faster than any hosting server, the loading speed of any website using the accelerator shall improve significantly. Memcached is employed to cache database and API calls and responses between a site visitor and a hosting server, so it's similar to Varnish, but is used primarily for database-driven Internet sites. Because the Internet site shall connect to its database way less, the overall server load will be minimized notably. The 3rd accelerator, Node.js, is employed for scalable online programs including chats and booking sites as it processes info in real time the instant it is entered on the webpage by the users. Based on the plan you select, these accelerators may be available or may be an optional upgrade.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the websites hosted within your semi-dedicated hosting account in accordance with the nature of the site content. Memcached, for example, caches database requests, therefore it is an excellent option for any script program such as WordPress or Joomla. That way, the database hosting server will not have to process the very same request if multiple users open a webpage 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 an Internet site. In case this page is opened again by the exact same website visitor, it shall be provided by Varnish at a much better speed compared to the hosting server. Employing this web accelerator shall minimize the load generated by your Internet sites significantly. Last, but not least, Node.js shall permit you to build scalable web apps such as hotel booking sites or chats. Its advantage over very similar platforms is that it does not wait for a user to submit a substantial piece of info, but processes whatever the user is inputting in real-time. The three web accelerators are available within the Hepsia CP and you'll be able to choose how many instances of every one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they may use.

Web Accelerators in VPS Hosting

In case you get a virtual private server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your Internet sites. All three accelerators are incorporated inside our plans by default and come with dedicated memory of a few hundred megabytes. Node.js is used to create scalable programs where real-time interaction is necessary - booking sites, online games, chats, etcetera. It processes the information in smaller bits as the user is entering it, therefore it works faster than other platforms which wait for the users to input one big piece of information. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator which operates as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it if the same website visitor opens the same website again, which can speed any site several times because Varnish operates faster than any web server. Memcached is employed for caching API and database responses, therefore it is ideal for script-driven sites like WordPress and Joomla. This web accelerator can easily minimize the load on your server as it'll decrease the amount of database queries which your websites make.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Web Hosting

Memcached, Varnish and Node.js come with all dedicated servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and based on the plan which you select, you'll also have several gigabytes of dedicated memory for them. Memcached can decrease the server load by lowering the amount of queries which have to be handled because it caches database calls and responses. You will be able to use it on every site that uses an API or a database - as an illustration, any site designed with WordPress or Joomla. Varnish can easily enhance the performance of any type of Internet site by caching whole pages the first time a guest opens them. The accelerator delivers the web pages if the very same visitor opens them later and because it does that considerably quicker than the server, the website visitor shall be able to browse your website at least several times faster. For this reason Varnish is oftentimes called an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is an advanced platform which will allow you to build booking sites, web chats and other programs where real-time server-user interaction is required. It processes the info in small portions as the client fills different boxes and does not wait for all boxes to be filled and processed as one large chunk of info, which makes Node.js much quicker than similar programs.
