A web accelerator is a server-side app which quickens an Internet site. Such a piece of software can function in different ways based on the site content, but in the general case all such apps cache content and deliver it instead of the web server. That's valid for both static and dynamic Internet sites as the cached content may be simple text or database responses and the benefit of employing a web accelerator is not just the faster loading Internet site, but also the minimized overall load on the web server. This way, you can use a lower-end hosting solution which will also cost less while your site visitors could still enjoy high browsing speeds. Handful of businesses offer web accelerators with their hosting plans and they usually offer only 1, while we offer three different ones that'll permit you to enhance the performance of any kind of site noticeably.

Web Accelerators in Shared Website Hosting

When you get one of our shared website hosting solutions, you will have 3 well-known web accelerators at your disposal and you shall be able to access them directly via the Hepsia CP that comes with our packages. Varnish is one of the most well-known ones and it can considerably accelerate any site since it caches the pages that a visitor opens for the first time and provides them each and every time that guest opens them again. Since Varnish functions much faster than any web server, the loading speed of any site using the accelerator will grow significantly. Memcached is used to cache database and API calls and responses between a visitor and a web server, so it is comparable to Varnish, but is employed mainly for database-driven sites. Since the Internet site shall connect to its database significantly less, the overall hosting server load will be decreased substantially. The 3rd accelerator, Node.js, is used for scalable online programs like chats and booking Internet sites as it processes data in real time the moment it is entered on the website by the users. Depending on the plan you choose, these accelerators could be available or could be an optional upgrade.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

You shall be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the websites hosted inside your semi-dedicated server account based on the nature of the website content. Memcached, in particular, caches database requests, therefore it's a great choice for any script program such as WordPress or Joomla. This way, the database server will not need to process the exact same request if a number of users open a site with the same content. Varnish is similar, but it's a general-purpose accelerator because it caches any kind of content the first time a website visitor opens an Internet site. In case this webpage is opened again by the very same website visitor, it'll be provided by Varnish at a much higher speed compared to the web server. Using this web accelerator shall lessen the load created by your sites tremendously. Last, but not least, Node.js shall allow you to build scalable web apps such as hotel booking Internet sites or chats. Its advantage over very similar platforms is that it doesn't wait for a customer to submit a substantial piece of info, but processes whatever the client is entering in real-time. The three web accelerators are available within the Hepsia CP and you will be able to select how many instances of every one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they may use.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

In case you purchase a dedicated server from our firm and you opt for Hepsia as the hosting CP, you will be able to use Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your websites. All packages come with several gigabytes of memory dedicated to these accelerators and the exact amount depends on the package you choose. Node.js is employed for scalable online apps such as browser games or hotel booking and it processes the information in real time as the user enters it, which makes it considerably quicker than very similar platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you employ it for a script-driven site, not simply will the site work faster, but also the load on the hosting server will decline as there will be less database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it's not limited to databases. Instead, it caches whole web pages once a website visitor opens them and provides them instead of the hosting server whenever the same visitor opens them later on. As Varnish processes web requests considerably faster than any server, the performance of a website using this accelerator can increase as much as 300%.
