A web accelerator is a piece of software which speeds up a website usually by caching content and supplying it instead of the server. Such programs may be used for both dynamic and static Internet sites as there are different accelerators that can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The advantage of using a web accelerator is that a given Internet site shall perform significantly faster without using additional system resources. Quite the opposite, such a website will need a lesser amount of resources to operate since the web accelerator will deal with most requests rather than the server. In contrast to many firms that do not offer web accelerators with their plans or offer just one, we offer 3 different ones that will enable you to speed up your Internet sites regardless of their style or content.

Web Accelerators in Shared Web Hosting

We provide 3 of the most well-known web accelerators along with our shared web hosting packages and based on what plan you'll select when you sign up, they could already be available or they may be an optional upgrade. Varnish is the most well-known one of them and it may be employed for any type of Internet site. It caches the web pages the first time a website visitor opens them and delivers them at a much faster speed compared to the hosting server every time that a website visitor opens them again. Memcached is employed to cache API and database calls, so it could increase the speed of dynamic websites like online stores, forums or social networks. Node.js is used for scalable web applications and it functions in real-time, which makes it perfect for server-side data processing - chats, browser games, booking portals, etcetera. You'll be able to choose what amount of memory these accelerators will use and how many instances of each shall run from your Hepsia Internet hosting Control Panel.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will 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, in particular, caches database requests, therefore it's a fantastic option for any script app like WordPress or Joomla. That way, the database web server shall not need to process the 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 sort of content the first time a visitor opens a site. If that webpage is opened again by the same guest, it shall be delivered by Varnish at a much better speed compared to the server. Employing this web accelerator will reduce the load generated by your Internet sites tremendously. Last, but not least, Node.js shall permit you to produce scalable web applications like hotel booking websites or chats. Its advantage over comparable platforms is that it does not wait for a user to submit a large piece of information, but processes whatever the customer is entering in real-time. The three web accelerators are available in the Hepsia CP and you'll be able to choose how many instances of each one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they can employ.

Web Accelerators in VPS Servers

In the event that you choose your VPS server to be integrated with the Hepsia CP, you'll be able to use Varnish, Memcached and Node.js - three of the most commonly used web accelerators. Varnish caches webpages the first time they are visited and delivers them each time the same person visits them again, which will speed up any type of site several times. Memcached is used for dynamic script programs such as Joomla and WordPress since it caches database requests and responses, therefore the database server shall not have to process the very same webpage each time guests open it if the same content should be displayed. Node.js is a platform for building real-time applications for example online games and chats. It operates faster than similar platforms as it processes the info in little pieces all the time and doesn't wait for users to submit a large piece of data which shall require more time to be processed. The 3 web accelerators are provided with all Hepsia-based VPS packages and come with several hundred MBs of dedicated memory.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

Memcached, Varnish and Node.js are provided with all dedicated servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and based on the package deal that you select, you will also have several gbs of dedicated memory for them. Memcached can reduce the hosting server load by lowering the number of queries that need to be addressed as it caches database calls and responses. You shall be able to use it on every website which uses an API or a database - as an example, any website designed with WordPress or Joomla. Varnish can easily boost the performance of any kind of Internet site by caching whole webpages the first time a guest opens them. The accelerator delivers the webpages if the same visitor opens them later and considering the fact that it does that considerably quicker than the server, the visitor shall be able to browse your site at least several times faster. This is why Varnish is sometimes categorised as an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is an innovative platform that'll allow you to develop booking websites, web chats and other apps in which real-time server-user interaction is necessary. 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 chunk of info, which makes Node.js way quicker than similar programs.
