A web accelerator is a software application which speeds up a website generally by caching content and providing it instead of the web server. Such programs could be used for both dynamic and static Internet sites because there are different accelerators that can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The advantage of using a web accelerator is that a given website will perform considerably faster without using more resources. Quite the opposite, this kind of a website will require much less resources to work as the web accelerator will tackle most requests instead of the web server. Contrary to many companies which do not offer web accelerators with their solutions or offer only 1, we offer three different ones that'll allow you to speed up your Internet sites irrespective of their type or content.

Web Accelerators in Hosting

In case you purchase one of our hosting solutions, you will have three widely used web accelerators at your disposal and you will be able to access them directly via the Hepsia CP that is included with our plans. Varnish is one of the most popular ones and it could significantly increase the speed of any website since it caches the web pages which a visitor opens for the first time and provides them each time that website visitor opens them again. Given that Varnish operates faster than any server, the loading speed of any site using the accelerator shall raise substantially. Memcached is used to cache database and API calls and responses between an Internet site visitor and a server, so it is comparable to Varnish, but is employed primarily for database-driven sites. Because the site shall connect to its database much less, the overall server load will be minimized substantially. The third accelerator, Node.js, is used for scalable online applications like chats and booking sites as it processes information in real time the instant it is entered on the webpage by the users. Depending on the plan you choose, these accelerators could be available or may be an optional upgrade.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

The Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with our semi-dedicated server packages shall enable you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your sites. Memcached is among the most widely used accelerators as it can effortlessly increase the speed of any API or database-driven website by caching requests and responses, thus the server won't need to process identical requests again and again. The platform is suitable for Internet sites built with programs such as Joomla, Mambo or WordPress. Varnish is an effective accelerator which caches any type of content and is also known as an HTTP reverse proxy. It caches webpages that are opened by a website visitor for the first time and delivers them each and every time that very same site visitor opens them again. Varnish can certainly accelerate an Internet site several times simply because it delivers content faster than any hosting server. Node.js is a platform employed for scalable real-time applications such as chats, Internet browser games or social networks. It processes info in little pieces as soon as a user types something, so it functions considerably faster than similar platforms where users submit sizeable portions of information which require time to be processed. You'll be able to pick the number of instances and the dedicated memory for each and every one of the 3 accelerators via your CP.

Web Accelerators in VPS Servers

In case you get a VPS server with the Hepsia CP, you'll be able to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your sites. All 3 accelerators are integrated in our packages by default and offer dedicated memory of several hundred MBs. Node.js is employed to build scalable apps where real-time interaction is needed - booking sites, online flash games, chats, etcetera. It processes the information in little portions as the end user is entering it, therefore it operates quicker than other platforms that wait for the end users to submit one big piece of info. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator which operates as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it in the event that the same visitor opens the same webpage again, which can speed any website several times because Varnish operates quicker than any server. Memcached is employed for caching API and database responses, therefore it's appropriate for script-driven Internet sites like WordPress and Joomla. This web accelerator will be able to lessen the load on your server because it shall lower the number of database queries which your sites make.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

Memcached, Varnish and Node.js are provided with all dedicated servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting CP and depending on the plan you opt for, you'll also have several gbs of dedicated memory for them. Memcached shall decrease the server load by lowering the amount of queries that need to be dealt with as it caches database calls and responses. You'll be able to use it on any website which uses an API or a database - for instance, any website designed with WordPress or Joomla. Varnish can enhance the performance of any sort of Internet site by caching whole webpages the first time a visitor opens them. The accelerator delivers the webpages if the same visitor opens them later on and because it does that much quicker than the web server, the visitor will be able to browse your website at least several times faster. That is why Varnish is often called an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is an advanced platform that'll permit you to develop booking websites, web chats and other apps in which real-time server-user interaction is needed. It processes the info in tiny parts as the client fills different boxes and doesn't wait for all boxes to be filled and processed as one large chunk of info, which makes Node.js much faster than similar applications.
