A web accelerator is a server-side application that quickens a website. Such a piece of software can function in different ways depending on the website content, but in the general situation all such programs cache content and deliver it instead of the hosting server. That's valid for both static and dynamic Internet sites because the cached content could be simple text or database responses and the reward of using a web accelerator is not just the faster loading Internet site, but also the smaller overall load on the web server. This way, you may use a lower-end hosting solution that'll also cost less while your site visitors will be able to still enjoy fast browsing speeds. Few businesses supply web accelerators with their hosting packages and they often offer just 1, while we offer 3 different ones that'll enable you to boost the performance of any sort of website noticeably.

Web Accelerators in Cloud Hosting

We offer three of the most popular web accelerators along with our cloud hosting solutions and depending on what plan you shall choose when you sign up, they might already be available or they could be an optional upgrade. Varnish is the most popular one of them and it could be used for any kind of website. It caches the web pages the first time a visitor opens them and delivers them at a considerably faster speed compared to the web server 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 like online stores, forums or social networks. Node.js is used for scalable web programs and it operates in real-time, which makes it ideal for server-side data processing - chats, browser games, booking portals, and so on. You will be able to select how much memory these accelerators shall employ and how many instances of each shall run from your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

You shall be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the websites hosted inside your semi-dedicated server account depending 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 hosting server shall not need to process the same request if a number of users open a page with the same content. Varnish is very similar, but it's a general-purpose accelerator because it caches any kind of content the first time a guest opens a page. If that page is opened again by the same website visitor, it'll be provided by Varnish at a much better speed compared to the web server. Using this web accelerator will minimize the load produced by your Internet sites substantially. Last, but not least, Node.js shall enable you to produce scalable web apps like hotel booking websites or chats. Its advantage over comparable platforms is that it doesn't wait for a customer to submit a large piece of data, but processes whatever the customer is typing in real-time. The three web accelerators are available within the Hepsia Control Panel and you'll be able to pick how many instances of each and every one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they may use.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

In the event that you order a dedicated server from us and you choose Hepsia as the hosting CP, you shall be able to employ Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your websites. All plans feature several gigabytes of memory dedicated to these accelerators and the actual amount depends on the package deal that you choose. Node.js is used for scalable online applications such as browser games or hotel booking and it processes the info instantly as the client enters it, which makes it much faster than similar platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you employ it for a script-driven Internet site, not simply will the site speed up, but also the load on the web server will decline because there will be a lesser amount of database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it's not limited to databases. Instead, it caches whole websites once a guest opens them and delivers them instead of the hosting server each and every time the same visitor opens them later on. Due to the fact that Varnish processes web requests considerably faster than any web server, the efficiency of a site using this accelerator may increase around 300%.
