A web accelerator is a program which speeds up a website, normally by caching its content. There are many types of accelerators, but in the common case this kind of apps cache static content or database responses and provide them in place of the server, therefore improving the performance of an Internet site drastically. The latter can be done because accelerator apps work faster than a web server and not simply will a site function better, but the server load will also decrease, which will enable you to run heavy Internet sites with less resources. We provide three web accelerators with our hosting solutions, which will enable you to speed up any type of Internet site. In comparison, most hosting companies do not offer any web accelerators or offer only one, which limits your choice of web apps if you'd like to use such software.

Web Accelerators in Web Hosting

We offer three of the most well-known web accelerators together with our web hosting solutions and depending on what plan you will pick when you sign up, they could already be available or they could be an optional upgrade. Varnish is the most popular one of them and it may be employed for any sort of Internet site. It caches the pages the first time a visitor opens them and provides them at a much faster speed compared to the web server each and every time that a visitor opens them again. Memcached is used to cache API and database calls, so it could boost the speed of dynamic 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 many others. You'll be able to pick how much memory these accelerators shall use and how many instances of each one shall run from your Hepsia website hosting CP.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server plans shall allow you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js - three of the most powerful web accelerators available. Memcached is employed to cache database and API calls and responses, therefore it can easily accelerate any script-driven website. You could use it for any website developed with WordPress or Joomla, for example. Varnish is also often called an HTTP reverse proxy and it's a general-purpose caching platform that could be employed for any kind of Internet sites. Depending on the content, it can increase the performance of a site as much as 300%. Node.js is an innovative system used to develop scalable Internet apps that process data in real time for example booking portals. Its advantage is that different from similar platforms, it processes information continuously and in small portions rather than waiting for the user to submit one massive chunk of data. The accelerators may be enabled for any website through the Hepsia Control Panel and you'll be able to choose how many instances of each one of them will work and how much memory they'll use.

Web Accelerators in VPS Servers

All VPS servers which are integrated with the Hepsia CP come with Varnish, Memcached and Node.js already included and you shall receive several hundred MBs of dedicated memory for them by default. Varnish, that is also referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy, caches web pages the first time a site visitor opens them and delivers them in case that visitor opens them again, hence the server won't have to perform any action. Due to the fact that Varnish works considerably faster than any web server, a site using this accelerator will work several times swifter. Memcached is a platform which caches database calls and responses and it is employed for WordPress, Joomla and other script-driven applications that store their content inside a database. Node.js is an effective platform for developing scalable web apps. Any information on a website which employs Node.js is processed right away, making it a great choice for dining and accommodation booking websites, web-based chats, Internet browser games, etc.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

Memcached, Varnish and Node.js are available with all dedicated servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and in accordance with the plan which you select, you shall also have several gbs of dedicated memory for them. Memcached shall minimize the server load by lowering the number of queries which need to be addressed as it caches database calls and responses. You'll be able to use it on every website which uses an API or a database - as an illustration, any site designed with WordPress or Joomla. Varnish could enhance the performance of any kind of site by caching whole pages the first time a guest opens them. The accelerator delivers the pages if the same visitor opens them afterwards and since it does that much faster than the hosting server, the website visitor shall be able to look through your website at least several times faster. That is why Varnish is often referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is a sophisticated platform which will enable you to develop booking websites, web chats and other apps in which real-time server-user interaction is needed. It processes the information in small portions as the client fills different boxes and does not wait for all boxes to be filled and processed as one large piece of info, which makes Node.js much quicker than similar apps.
