A web accelerator is a server-side program that accelerates a website. Such a piece of software could operate in different ways based on the site content, but in the typical situation all such programs cache content and deliver it instead of the hosting server. That's valid for both dynamic and static sites as the cached content can be simple text or database responses and the reward of using a web accelerator is not just the faster loading website, but also the reduced overall load on the server. That way, you could employ a lower-end hosting solution which will also cost less while your website visitors will be able to still enjoy fast browsing speeds. Handful of companies provide web accelerators with their hosting plans and they frequently offer only one, while we offer 3 different ones that'll permit you to boost the performance of any type of website noticeably.

Web Accelerators in Hosting

When you acquire one of our hosting packages, you shall have 3 widely used web accelerators at your disposal and you shall be able to access them directly via the Hepsia CP that is included with our plans. Varnish is one of the most well-known ones and it could greatly accelerate any website since it caches the web pages which a site visitor opens for the first time and provides them each time that website visitor opens them again. Given that Varnish works noticeably faster than any server, the loading speed of any website using the accelerator shall improve noticeably. Memcached is employed to cache database and API calls and responses between a website visitor and a hosting server, so it's similar to Varnish, but is employed largely for database-driven sites. Since the Internet site shall connect to its database way less, the overall web server load shall be minimized notably. The last accelerator, Node.js, is used for scalable online programs including chats and booking Internet sites because it processes info in real time the moment it is entered on the site by the users. Depending on the plan you pick, these accelerators may be available or might be an optional upgrade.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

The Hepsia CP which comes with our semi-dedicated server packages shall allow you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your sites. Memcached is among the most widely used accelerators because it can accelerate any API or database-driven website by caching requests and responses, as a result the server shall not need to process identical requests again and again. The platform is ideal for Internet sites designed with apps such as Joomla, Mambo or WordPress. Varnish is a highly effective accelerator that caches any type of content and is also frequently called an HTTP reverse proxy. It caches webpages which are opened by a site visitor for the first time and provides them each and every time that very same guest opens them again. Varnish can certainly speed up a site several times because it delivers content quicker than any hosting server. Node.js is a platform used for scalable real-time apps such as chats, Internet browser games or social networks. It processes data in smaller parts the instant a user types something, as a result it functions much faster than similar platforms where users submit large parts of data which need time to be processed. You could pick the number of instances and the dedicated memory for each and every one of the three accelerators using 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 within our plans by default and feature dedicated memory of several hundred MBs. Node.js is employed to develop scalable programs where real-time interaction is needed - booking Internet sites, online games, chats, etcetera. It processes the data in small parts as the user is entering it, as a result it works more quickly than other platforms that wait for the end users to enter one large piece of data. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator that works as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it if the same site visitor opens the same website again, which can easily speed any site several times as Varnish works a lot quicker than any server. Memcached is employed for caching API and database responses, so it's suitable for script-driven sites like WordPress and Joomla. This web accelerator can easily lessen the load on your web server as it shall decrease the amount of database queries your sites make.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

If you select Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel for your new dedicated server, you shall have Memcached, Varnish and Node.js at your disposal for speeding up your Internet sites. Memcached will be able to reduce the load on the hosting server by lowering the queries your script-driven sites make as it caches database responses. This web accelerator is great for dynamic Internet sites developed with WordPress, Joomla and similar scripts. Varnish, which is known as an HTTP reverse proxy, caches entire sites the first time a new guest opens them. It can be used to accelerate any kind of website because it provides the cached content faster than the server any time a guest opens the same page again. You'll be able to use Node.js for online programs which require real-time server-client interaction like online chats or booking websites. Different from other platforms that await the user to fill everything on a form, Node.js processes the info bit by bit as the user fills each and every box, so it works considerably quicker and more effectively. All dedicated server packages feature several gigabytes of memory dedicated to those 3 web accelerators.
