A web accelerator is a software program that accelerates a site generally by caching content and supplying it instead of the web server. Such apps may be employed for both dynamic and static 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 significantly faster without employing more resources. On the contrary, such a site will demand a lesser amount of resources to work since the web accelerator will take care of most requests rather than the web server. Contrary to many firms which do not offer web accelerators with their plans or offer only 1, we offer 3 different ones which will enable you to speed up your Internet sites whatever their type or content.

Web Accelerators in Website Hosting

We provide three of the most well-known web accelerators along with our website hosting packages and based on what plan you'll choose when you sign up, they may already be available or they may be an optional upgrade. Varnish is the most widely used one of them and it may be employed for any sort of website. It caches the web pages the first time a site visitor opens them and provides them at a considerably faster speed compared to the web server each time that a visitor opens them again. Memcached is employed to cache API and database calls, so it can easily boost the speed of dynamic sites such as online stores, forums or social networks. Node.js is used for scalable web applications and it operates in real-time, which makes it ideal for server-side data processing - chats, browser games, booking portals, etc. You shall be able to choose the amount of memory these accelerators shall use and how many instances of each one will run from your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You'll be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the Internet sites hosted in your semi-dedicated hosting account depending on the nature of the site content. Memcached, for instance, caches database requests, so it is a superb choice for any script app like WordPress or Joomla. That way, the database server shall not have to process the same request if a number of users open a page with the same content. Varnish is comparable, but it's a general-purpose accelerator because it caches any kind of content the first time a visitor opens a site. In case that page is opened again by the same guest, it'll be provided by Varnish at a much better speed compared to the hosting server. Using this web accelerator can decrease the load produced by your Internet sites drastically. Last, but not least, Node.js will allow you to build scalable web applications 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 customer is inputting in real-time. The 3 web accelerators are available inside the Hepsia Control Panel and you shall be able to choose how many instances of every one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they can use.

Web Accelerators in VPS Web Hosting

In the event that you get a virtual private server with the Hepsia CP, you shall be able to employ Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your Internet sites. All 3 accelerators are integrated within our packages by default and feature dedicated memory of several hundred MBs. Node.js is used to develop scalable applications where real-time interaction is needed - booking sites, online flash games, chats, and so on. It processes the info in small portions as the user is entering it, thus it operates more quickly than other platforms which wait for the users to input one large bit of information. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator which functions as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it if the same website visitor opens the same webpage again, which can speed any Internet site several times because Varnish functions more quickly than any hosting server. Memcached is used for caching API and database responses, so it's ideal for script-driven Internet sites such as WordPress and Joomla. This web accelerator can decrease the load on your hosting server as it shall decrease the number of database queries your sites make.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Memcached, Varnish and Node.js are provided with all dedicated servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting CP and depending on the package which you pick, you will also have several gigabytes of dedicated memory for them. Memcached shall minimize the web server load by lowering the amount of queries that need to be addressed since it caches database calls and responses. You will be able to use it on every website which uses an API or a database - for instance, any site designed with WordPress or Joomla. Varnish can improve the performance of any type of website by caching whole webpages the first time a visitor opens them. The accelerator delivers the pages if the exact same visitor opens them later on and because it does that considerably quicker than the server, the visitor shall be able to look through your Internet site at least a few times faster. This is why Varnish is oftentimes referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is a sophisticated platform which will permit you to develop booking websites, web chats and other programs where real-time server-user interaction is needed. It processes the data in tiny pieces as the client fills different boxes and doesn't wait for all boxes to be filled and processed as one massive piece of information, which makes Node.js considerably quicker than similar applications.
