A web accelerator is a server-side application that accelerates a site. Such a piece of software can operate in different ways depending upon the website content, but in the general case all such programs cache content and deliver it instead of the server. That's valid for both static and dynamic Internet sites since the cached content can be simple text or database responses and the reward of employing a web accelerator is not just the faster loading site, but also the minimized overall load on the server. This way, you may employ a lower-end hosting plan that'll also cost less while your visitors will be able to still enjoy fast browsing speeds. Several firms offer web accelerators with their hosting plans and they often offer only one, while we offer three different ones that'll allow you to enhance the performance of any type of site tremendously.

Web Accelerators in Web Hosting

We offer three of the most well-known web accelerators with our web hosting solutions and based upon what plan you'll select when you sign up, they could already be available or they might be an optional upgrade. Varnish is the most popular one of them and it can be used for any kind of website. It caches the pages the first time a website visitor opens them and provides them at a considerably faster speed compared to the server each time that a website visitor opens them again. Memcached is employed to cache API and database calls, so it can easily boost the speed of dynamic websites such as online stores, discussion boards or social networks. Node.js is employed for scalable web apps and it functions in real-time, which makes it ideal for server-side data processing - chats, browser games, booking portals, and so forth. You shall be able to select just how much memory these accelerators will use and how many instances of each and every one shall run from your Hepsia hosting CP.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Hepsia CP that is provided with our semi-dedicated hosting solutions will permit you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your sites. Memcached is among the most popular accelerators as it can speed up any API or database-driven website by caching requests and responses, thus the web server won't have to process identical requests over and over again. The platform is suitable for sites created with apps such as Joomla, Mambo or WordPress. Varnish is a highly effective accelerator which caches any type of content and is also frequently called an HTTP reverse proxy. It caches web pages which are opened by a website visitor for the first time and delivers them each time that same site visitor opens them again. Varnish can easily speed up a site several times because it delivers content quicker than any hosting server. Node.js is a platform employed for scalable real-time applications like chats, browser games or social networks. It processes info in small pieces the moment a user types something, so it works much more quickly than similar platforms where users submit large parts of information that require time to be processed. You can pick the number of instances and the dedicated memory for each and every one of the 3 accelerators using your CP.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Hosting

Memcached, Varnish and Node.js come with all dedicated servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and based on the package deal you choose, you will also have several gigabytes of dedicated memory for them. Memcached shall reduce the web server load by lowering the number of queries which have to be dealt with as it caches database calls and responses. You shall be able to use it on every site which uses an API or a database - as an example, any website built with WordPress or Joomla. Varnish could boost the performance of any type of website by caching whole webpages the first time a visitor opens them. The accelerator provides the webpages if the same visitor opens them later on and considering the fact that it does that considerably quicker than the web server, the visitor shall be able to surf your website at least several times faster. For this reason Varnish is oftentimes called an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is an advanced platform that'll permit you to create booking sites, web chats and other apps in which real-time server-user interaction is required. It processes the info in tiny portions as the client fills different boxes and does not wait for all boxes to be filled and processed as one big chunk of info, which makes Node.js much faster than similar applications.
