A web accelerator is a software program which speeds up an Internet site usually by caching content and providing it instead of the hosting server. Such programs can be used for both dynamic and static Internet sites because there are different accelerators that can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The advantage of employing a web accelerator is that a given site shall perform noticeably faster without using additional resources. On the contrary, such a site will need much less resources to work because the web accelerator will deal with most requests rather than the web server. Contrary to many businesses which do not offer web accelerators with their plans or offer only 1, we offer three different ones which will permit you to speed up your Internet sites whatever their type or content.

Web Accelerators in Website Hosting

In case you acquire one of our website hosting plans, you shall have 3 well-known web accelerators at your disposal and you shall be able to access them directly via the Hepsia Control Panel which is included with our solutions. Varnish is one of the most widely used ones and it could significantly increase the speed of any website as it caches the pages a website visitor opens for the first time and delivers them each time that website visitor opens them again. Because Varnish works faster than any server, the loading speed of any site using the accelerator will raise substantially. Memcached is employed to cache database and API calls and responses between a site visitor and a web server, so it's comparable to Varnish, but is used largely for database-driven sites. Since the site shall connect to its database a lot less, the overall web server load shall be decreased substantially. The 3rd accelerator, Node.js, is employed for scalable online apps such as chats and booking sites as it processes info in real time the instant it is entered on the webpage by the users. Depending on the package you choose, these accelerators may be available or might be an optional upgrade.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You'll be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the Internet sites hosted inside your semi-dedicated hosting account depending on the nature of the site content. Memcached, in particular, caches database requests, therefore it is a great choice for any script app like WordPress or Joomla. That way, the database hosting server shall not need to process exactly the same request if a number of users open a page with the same content. Varnish is very similar, but it is a general-purpose accelerator as it caches any kind of content the first time a visitor opens a page. If that webpage is opened again by the very same website visitor, it'll be delivered by Varnish at a much higher speed compared to the server. Employing this web accelerator shall lessen the load produced by your sites considerably. Last, but not least, Node.js will allow you to build scalable web apps such as hotel booking Internet sites or chats. Its advantage over comparable platforms is that it does not wait for a client to submit a sizable piece of information, but processes whatever the user is typing in real-time. The 3 web accelerators are available within the Hepsia Control Panel and you'll be able to pick how many instances of each one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they may use.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Web Hosting

In case you acquire a dedicated server from our company and you opt for Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel, you shall be able to employ Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your websites. All solutions come with several gigabytes of memory dedicated to those accelerators and the actual amount depends on the plan you choose. Node.js is employed for scalable online applications including browser games or hotel booking and it processes the info instantly as the user enters it, which makes it considerably faster than similar platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you use it for a script-driven website, not only will the Internet site speed up, but also the load on the hosting server will minimize since there shall be fewer database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it isn't limited to databases. Rather, it caches entire pages once a website visitor opens them and delivers them instead of the web server each and every time the same visitor opens them later. Due to the fact that Varnish processes web requests much faster than any hosting server, the efficiency of a site using this accelerator can increase as much as 300%.
