A web accelerator is a piece of software that accelerates an Internet site usually by caching content and delivering it instead of the hosting server. Such programs can be used for both dynamic and static Internet sites as there are various accelerators which can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The benefit of using a web accelerator is that a given site will perform substantially faster without using more system resources. On the contrary, this type of a website will need a lesser amount of resources to function since the web accelerator will take care of most requests instead of the hosting server. Unlike many firms which do not offer web accelerators with their packages or offer only 1, we offer three different ones which will permit you to speed up your websites regardless of their type or content.

Web Accelerators in Shared Web Hosting

If you acquire one of our shared web hosting plans, you shall have three well-known web accelerators at your disposal and you will be able to access them directly using the Hepsia Control Panel that is included with our plans. Varnish is one of the most well-known ones and it could considerably increase the speed of any Internet site because it caches the web pages a site visitor opens for the first time and delivers them each and every time that visitor opens them again. Given that Varnish works considerably faster than any server, the loading speed of any website using the accelerator shall increase substantially. Memcached is employed to cache database and API calls and responses between an Internet site visitor and a web server, so it's comparable to Varnish, but is used mainly for database-driven Internet sites. Considering that the website will connect to its database way less, the overall web server load shall be minimized substantially. The 3rd accelerator, Node.js, is used for scalable online applications like chats and booking Internet sites as it processes information in real time the instant it is entered on the website by the users. Based on the package you choose, these accelerators could be available or may be an optional upgrade.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you select one of our semi-dedicated server solutions, you will be able to work with Varnish, Memcached and Node.js - 3 efficient web accelerators. Varnish is a multi-purpose app that caches websites the first time a site visitor opens them and provides them instead of the hosting server if the site visitor opens them again nearly 300% faster. Memcached caches API and database calls and responses in order that the server does not need to process each and every request, which makes it perfect for database-driven Internet sites, for example ones designed with Joomla or WordPress. Node.js is used to build web apps that function in real-time like chats or accommodation booking portals and it processes every bit of info the instant the user enters it instead of waiting for massive chunks of data to be accumulated. The Hepsia Control Panel which is provided with our semi-dedicated solutions will enable you to choose how many instances of each and every accelerator shall work at a time and just how much memory they'll use.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

Memcached, Varnish and Node.js come with all dedicated servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and in accordance with the package that you choose, you'll also have several gigabytes of dedicated memory for them. Memcached will minimize the server load by lowering the amount of queries which have to be dealt with as it caches database calls and responses. You shall be able to use it on any Internet site which uses an API or a database - as an example, any site designed with WordPress or Joomla. Varnish can easily boost the performance of any sort of Internet site by caching whole pages the first time a visitor opens them. The accelerator delivers the web pages if the very same visitor opens them afterwards and given that it does that way quicker than the server, the website visitor shall be able to surf your site at least a couple of times faster. That's why Varnish is often referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is an innovative platform which will enable you to create booking sites, web chats and other programs in which real-time server-user interaction is required. It processes the info in little parts as the user fills different boxes and doesn't wait for all boxes to be filled and processed as one big chunk of info, which makes Node.js much faster than similar applications.
