A web accelerator is a piece of software which accelerates a website generally by caching content and delivering it instead of the web server. Such applications can be used for both dynamic and static websites because there are different accelerators which can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The best thing about employing a web accelerator is that a given site shall perform considerably faster without using extra resources. On the contrary, this type of a site will demand much less resources to function as the web accelerator will deal with most requests rather than the web server. Contrary to many companies which don't offer web accelerators with their packages or offer one, we offer 3 different ones that will enable you to speed up your Internet sites whatever their kind or content.

Web Accelerators in Shared Hosting

Our shared hosting packages feature three web accelerators which you could use depending on the Internet sites which you would like to run. Memcached is used to cache database or API calls and responses, which can considerably boost the efficiency of dynamic Internet sites. Varnish is a popular HTTP accelerator which caches web pages and provides them to the site visitors much faster than the hosting server after the first time they open them. Node.js is an event-driven platform used for scalable real-time apps such as booking websites. Depending on the hosting solution you select, these 3 applications might already be included or could be optional upgrades. In any case, you will be able to pick how many instances of each of them will be at your disposal and how much memory they ought to employ. These accelerators are provided only by a handful of web hosting providers, including ours, and they can easily raise the speed of your web apps considerably.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the sites hosted within your semi-dedicated server account depending on the nature of the website content. Memcached, for example, caches database requests, therefore it's an excellent choice for any script program such as WordPress or Joomla. This way, the database web server shall not need to process the exact same request if a number of users open a website with the same content. Varnish is similar, but it is a general-purpose accelerator because it caches any type of content the first time a website visitor opens a page. In case that page is opened again by the same guest, it shall be delivered by Varnish at a much better speed compared to the hosting server. Employing this web accelerator will reduce the load produced by your Internet sites drastically. Last, but not least, Node.js will permit you to produce scalable web programs like hotel booking sites or chats. Its advantage over very similar platforms is that it doesn't wait for a customer to submit a sizable piece of information, but processes whatever the user is entering in real-time. The 3 web accelerators are available within the Hepsia CP and you will be able to select how many instances of each one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they'll use.

Web Accelerators in VPS Servers

All VPS servers which are incorporated with the Hepsia CP come with Varnish, Memcached and Node.js already included and you shall receive several hundred megabytes of dedicated memory for them by default. Varnish, which is also often called an HTTP reverse proxy, caches pages the first time a site visitor opens them and provides them if that visitor opens them again, therefore the hosting server won't need to perform any action. As Varnish operates much quicker than any web server, a site employing this accelerator will function several times faster. Memcached is a platform which caches database calls and responses and it is employed for WordPress, Joomla and other script-driven programs that store their content within a database. Node.js is an efficient platform for building scalable web apps. Any info on an Internet site which uses Node.js is processed in real time, making it a great choice for dining and accommodation booking sites, web-based chats, Internet browser games, and so forth.

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 package that you opt for, you shall also have several gbs of dedicated memory for them. Memcached can reduce the server load by lowering the number of queries that have to be dealt with because it caches database calls and responses. You shall be able to use it on any website that uses an API or a database - as an illustration, any website designed with WordPress or Joomla. Varnish could improve the performance of any kind of Internet site by caching whole webpages the first time a visitor opens them. The accelerator delivers the pages if the very same visitor opens them later on and since it does that considerably quicker than the web server, the website visitor shall be able to look through your website at least a few times faster. For this reason Varnish is sometimes categorised as an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is an advanced platform that will allow you to build booking websites, web chats and other apps where real-time server-user interaction is required. It processes the information in tiny bits as the client fills different boxes and doesn't wait for all boxes to be filled and processed as one large piece of info, which makes Node.js considerably quicker than similar programs.
