A web accelerator is a piece of software which accelerates an Internet site typically by caching content and providing it instead of the server. Such programs can be used for both static and dynamic sites as there are different accelerators that can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The benefit of employing a web accelerator is that a given Internet site will perform substantially faster without using additional resources. Quite the opposite, this kind of a site will require a lesser amount of resources to operate because the web accelerator will tackle most requests instead of the hosting server. Unlike many firms that do not offer web accelerators with their solutions or offer just one, we offer 3 different ones that'll allow you to speed up your sites whatever their kind or content.

Web Accelerators in Shared Hosting

We offer 3 of the most well-known web accelerators along with our shared hosting solutions and based on what plan you will 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 can be employed for any kind of site. It caches the pages the first time a visitor opens them and delivers them at a much faster speed compared to the server every time that a visitor opens them again. Memcached is used to cache API and database calls, so it can increase the speed of dynamic websites including online stores, forums or social networks. Node.js is used for scalable web applications and it works in real-time, which makes it ideal for server-side data processing - chats, browser games, booking portals, etc. You will be able to choose the amount of memory these accelerators shall use and how many instances of each one will 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 sites hosted inside your semi-dedicated server account based on the nature of the website content. Memcached, for instance, caches database requests, therefore it is a fantastic option for any script application such as WordPress or Joomla. That way, the database hosting server won't have to process exactly the same request if many users open a page with the same content. Varnish is very similar, but it's a general-purpose accelerator as it caches any kind of content the first time a guest opens a site. In case this page is opened again by the exact same visitor, it will be provided by Varnish at a much better speed compared to the hosting server. Employing this web accelerator shall minimize the load produced by your Internet sites significantly. Last, but not least, Node.js shall allow you to create scalable web programs such as hotel booking websites or chats. Its advantage over very similar platforms is that it does not wait for a user to submit a sizable piece of info, but processes whatever the client is typing in real-time. The 3 web accelerators are available in the Hepsia CP and you will 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 Dedicated Servers

In the event that you select Hepsia as the hosting CP for your new dedicated server, you'll have Memcached, Varnish and Node.js readily available for speeding up your websites. Memcached will be able to decrease the load on the server by lowering the queries your script-driven websites make since it caches database responses. This web accelerator is good for dynamic sites created with WordPress, Joomla and similar scripts. Varnish, which is often called an HTTP reverse proxy, caches whole sites the first time a new guest opens them. It can be used to accelerate any sort of site because it delivers the cached content considerably faster than the hosting server any time a guest opens the same webpage again. You could use Node.js for online apps which call for real-time server-client interaction like online chats or booking Internet sites. In contrast to other platforms that wait for the user to fill everything on a form, Node.js processes the information gradually as the user fills each box, so it functions considerably faster and more effectively. All dedicated server plans feature several gigabytes of memory dedicated to those 3 web accelerators.
