A web accelerator is a software which accelerates a website, usually by caching its content. There are different types of accelerators, but in the common case this sort of programs cache static content or database responses and supply them in lieu of the hosting server, thus increasing the performance of an Internet site significantly. The latter is possible because accelerator programs work faster than a server and not simply will a site operate better, but the server load will also decline, which will permit you to run heavy websites with less resources. We offer 3 web accelerators with our hosting plans, which will allow you to increase the speed of any type of Internet site. In comparison, most hosting firms don't offer any web accelerators or provide only 1, which limits your choice of web applications if you want to use this type of software.

Web Accelerators in Cloud Hosting

We provide 3 of the most popular web accelerators along with our cloud hosting packages and based upon what plan you will select when you sign up, they could already be available or they may be an optional upgrade. Varnish is the most widely used one of them and it may be employed for any type of site. It caches the pages the first time a website visitor opens them and provides them at a much faster speed compared to the web server each and every time that a website visitor opens them again. Memcached is used to cache API and database calls, so it could increase the speed of dynamic Internet sites such as online stores, discussion boards or social networks. Node.js is employed for scalable web applications and it functions in real-time, which makes it excellent for server-side data processing - chats, browser games, booking portals, and so on. You will be able to choose how much memory these accelerators will employ and how many instances of each shall run from your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

The Hepsia CP which is included with our semi-dedicated server solutions will permit you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your sites. Memcached is one of the most famous accelerators since it can easily accelerate 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 perfect for websites created with programs such as Joomla, Mambo or WordPress. Varnish is an effective accelerator which caches any sort of content and is also frequently called an HTTP reverse proxy. It caches webpages which are opened by a website visitor for the first time and delivers them each time that same guest opens them again. Varnish can easily accelerate a site several times since it delivers content faster than any hosting server. Node.js is a platform employed for scalable real-time apps such as chats, browser games or social networks. It processes data in smaller parts as soon as a user types something, as a result it operates faster than similar platforms in which users submit sizeable portions of info that require time to be processed. You can choose the number of instances and the dedicated memory for each of the 3 accelerators through your Control Panel.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

In case you get a dedicated server from our firm and you select Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel, you shall be able to use Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your sites. All packages include several gigabytes of memory dedicated to these accelerators and the actual amount depends on the package that you choose. Node.js is used for scalable online programs such as browser games or hotel booking and it processes the information in real time as the client enters it, which makes it considerably quicker 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 website speed up, but also the load on the hosting server will decline because there shall be fewer database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it's not at all limited to databases. Rather, it caches entire web pages once a visitor opens them and delivers them instead of the web server every time the same visitor opens them later on. Because Varnish processes web requests much quicker than any hosting server, the performance of a site using this accelerator may increase around 300%.
