A web accelerator is a software that quickens a website, typically by caching its content. There are various sorts of accelerators, but in the general case this kind of applications cache static content or database responses and supply them in place of the hosting server, therefore enhancing the performance of an Internet site noticeably. The latter is achievable because accelerator applications work faster than a web server and not only will an Internet site work better, but the server load shall also decrease, which will permit you to run heavy sites with less system resources. We provide three web accelerators with our hosting packages, which will permit you to increase the speed of any type of website. In comparison, most web hosting providers do not offer any web accelerators or provide only 1, which limits your choice of web apps in case you want to employ such software.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server solutions will enable you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js - three of the most efficient web accelerators available on the market. Memcached is employed to cache database and API calls and responses, thus it can increase the speed of any script-driven website. You can use it for any Internet site designed with WordPress or Joomla, for instance. Varnish is also often called an HTTP reverse proxy and it is a general-purpose caching platform that could be employed for any sort of Internet sites. Depending on the content, it could boost the performance of a site close to 300%. Node.js is an advanced system employed to create scalable Internet programs that process information in real time such as booking portals. Its advantage is that different from comparable platforms, it processes data continuously and in small bits as opposed to waiting for the user to submit one massive piece of data. The accelerators can be enabled for any Internet site through the Hepsia Control Panel and you'll be able to select how many instances of each one of them will work and how much memory they shall employ.

Web Accelerators in VPS Servers

All VPS servers that are integrated with the Hepsia Control Panel come with Varnish, Memcached and Node.js already included and you will get several hundred MBs of dedicated memory for them by default. Varnish, which is also often called an HTTP reverse proxy, caches pages the first time a visitor opens them and delivers them if that guest opens them again, therefore the server won't have to perform any action. As Varnish works faster than any server, an Internet site employing this accelerator shall function several times swifter. Memcached is a platform which caches database calls and responses and it is used for WordPress, Joomla and other script-driven apps that store their content within a database. Node.js is an efficient platform for creating scalable web apps. Any data on a site which uses Node.js is processed right away, making it a fantastic choice for dining and accommodation booking sites, web-based chats, browser games, and so forth.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

If you get a dedicated server from us and you choose Hepsia as the hosting CP, you shall be able to use Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your Internet sites. All plans come with several gigabytes of memory dedicated to these accelerators and the actual amount depends on the package you choose. Node.js is employed for scalable online programs including browser games or hotel booking and it processes the info instantly as the user enters it, which makes it faster than similar platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you employ it for a script-driven Internet site, not only will the website speed up, but also the load on the web server will decrease as there will be less database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it's not limited to databases. Rather, it caches entire pages once a visitor opens them and delivers them instead of the web server each time the same visitor opens them later on. Due to the fact that Varnish processes web requests much quicker than any web server, the performance of a website using this accelerator may increase up to 300%.
