A web accelerator is a server-side app which quickens an Internet site. Such a piece of software can function in different ways depending upon the site content, but in the typical case all such programs cache content and deliver it instead of the hosting server. That is valid for both dynamic and static Internet sites because the cached content may be simple text or database responses and the benefit of using a web accelerator is not only the faster loading site, but also the smaller overall load on the machine. This way, you could employ a lower-end hosting solution which will also cost less while your site visitors will be able to still enjoy high browsing speeds. Several service providers provide web accelerators with their hosting deals and they often offer only one, while we offer three different ones that will permit you to boost the performance of any kind of website significantly.

Web Accelerators in Hosting

If you buy one of our hosting packages, you'll have 3 well-known web accelerators at your disposal and you will be able to access them directly through the Hepsia CP that is included with our solutions. Varnish is one of the most well-known ones and it could greatly speed up any Internet site as it caches the pages that a website visitor opens for the first time and delivers them every time that guest opens them again. Since Varnish functions way quicker than any hosting server, the loading speed of any website using the accelerator will increase noticeably. Memcached is used to cache database and API calls and responses between an Internet site visitor and a web server, so it is much like Varnish, but is used primarily for database-driven websites. Because the Internet site will connect to its database significantly less, the overall web server load will be minimized significantly. The last accelerator, Node.js, is used for scalable online applications like chats and booking websites since it processes data in real time the instant it is entered on the webpage by the users. Dependant upon the plan you choose, these accelerators may be available or may be an optional upgrade.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Hepsia Control Panel which is included with our semi-dedicated hosting packages shall permit you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your websites. Memcached is one of the most well known accelerators since it can increase the speed of any API or database-driven website by caching requests and responses, as a result the server will not need to process identical requests time and time again. The platform is suitable for websites developed with programs such as Joomla, Mambo or WordPress. Varnish is a powerful accelerator which caches any sort of content and is also known as an HTTP reverse proxy. It caches pages which are opened by a website visitor for the first time and provides them each and every time that same site visitor opens them again. Varnish can easily speed up a website several times because it delivers content quicker than any hosting server. Node.js is a platform used for scalable real-time apps such as chats, Internet browser games or social networks. It processes information in little pieces the instant a user types something, as a result it operates faster than similar platforms where users submit large parts of info which need time to be processed. You can choose the number of instances and the dedicated memory for each and every one of the 3 accelerators using your CP.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Hosting

In case you purchase a dedicated server from our company and you select Hepsia as the hosting CP, you will be able to employ Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your Internet sites. All plans include several gigabytes of memory dedicated to these accelerators and the exact amount depends on the package deal that you choose. Node.js is employed for scalable online programs including browser games or hotel booking and it processes the data in real time as the client enters it, which makes it much 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 site speed up, but also the load on the server will decline as there will be a lesser amount of database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it is not limited to databases. Instead, it caches whole pages once a visitor opens them and delivers them instead of the server whenever the same visitor opens them afterwards. Since Varnish processes web requests much faster than any hosting server, the overall performance of a site using this accelerator can increase as much as 300%.
