A web accelerator is a piece of software which accelerates a website generally by caching content and delivering it instead of the server. Such applications can be used for both dynamic and static sites since there are different accelerators that can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The advantage of employing a web accelerator is that a given Internet site shall perform considerably faster without using additional system resources. Quite the opposite, this kind of a site will require much less resources to work as the web accelerator will deal with most requests instead of the hosting server. In contrast to many businesses which don't offer web accelerators with their plans or offer only 1, we offer 3 different ones which will enable you to speed up your sites whatever their kind or content.

Web Accelerators in Shared Hosting

In case you buy one of our shared hosting plans, you shall have 3 well-known web accelerators at your disposal and you will be able to access them directly through the Hepsia CP which is included with our solutions. Varnish is one of the most well-known ones and it could tremendously accelerate any website since it caches the pages a site visitor opens for the first time and provides them each time that guest opens them again. Since Varnish functions considerably faster than any web server, the loading speed of any website using the accelerator will raise substantially. Memcached is used to cache database and API calls and responses between an Internet site visitor and a server, so it's comparable to Varnish, but is used largely for database-driven sites. Considering that the Internet site shall connect to its database way less, the overall hosting server load shall be reduced substantially. The 3rd accelerator, Node.js, is used for scalable online apps like chats and booking sites because it processes data in real time as soon as it is entered on the webpage by the users. Depending on the plan you select, these accelerators may be available or could be an optional upgrade.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

You'll be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the websites hosted within your semi-dedicated server account based on the nature of the website content. Memcached, for instance, caches database requests, therefore it is a great option for any script program like WordPress or Joomla. That way, the database server won't have to process the exact same request if multiple users open a website with the same content. Varnish is comparable, but it's a general-purpose accelerator because it caches any kind of content the first time a guest opens an Internet site. If this webpage is opened again by the exact same guest, it will be delivered by Varnish at a much better speed compared to the hosting server. Using this web accelerator will reduce the load produced by your websites substantially. Last, but not least, Node.js shall allow you to produce scalable web programs such as hotel booking sites or chats. Its advantage over very similar platforms is that it doesn't wait for a customer to submit a sizable 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 shall be able to select how many instances of every one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they may use.

Web Accelerators in VPS Servers

In the event that you choose your VPS server to be integrated with the Hepsia CP, you will be able to use Varnish, Memcached and Node.js - three of the most widely used web accelerators. Varnish caches sites the first time they are visited and provides them each time the same individual visits them again, which will speed up any sort of site several times. Memcached is used for dynamic script programs like Joomla and WordPress since it caches database requests and responses, therefore the database server shall not have to process the exact same page every time guests open it in the event that the same content should be displayed. Node.js is a platform for creating real-time programs such as online games and chats. It operates faster than similar platforms because it processes the info in small bits all the time and doesn't wait for users to enter a large piece of data that will need more time to be processed. The 3 web accelerators are offered with all Hepsia-based VPS plans and feature several hundred MBs of dedicated memory.
