A web accelerator is a software program that speeds up an Internet site usually by caching content and providing it instead of the server. Such programs can be employed for both static and dynamic websites since there are various accelerators that can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The main advantage of employing a web accelerator is that a given Internet site will perform considerably faster without using additional system resources. On the contrary, this type of a site will demand significantly less resources to operate as the web accelerator will tackle most requests instead of the web server. In contrast to many businesses that don't offer web accelerators with their packages or offer only one, we offer three different ones which will permit you to speed up your websites whatever their type or content.

Web Accelerators in Shared Hosting

In case you buy one of our shared hosting packages, you shall have 3 widely used web accelerators at your disposal and you'll be able to access them directly using the Hepsia Control Panel that is included with our plans. Varnish is one of the most popular ones and it could greatly accelerate any site because it caches the web pages which a visitor opens for the first time and delivers them each and every time that visitor opens them again. Given that Varnish operates much faster than any web server, the loading speed of any website using the accelerator will grow significantly. Memcached is employed to cache database and API calls and responses between a visitor and a web server, so it's much like Varnish, but is used predominantly for database-driven sites. Because the website shall connect to its database a lot less, the overall server load shall be minimized considerably. The third accelerator, Node.js, is used for scalable online apps including chats and booking websites since it processes data in real time as soon as it is entered on the site by the users. Depending on the plan you choose, these accelerators could be available or may be an optional upgrade.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Hepsia Control Panel that comes with our semi-dedicated hosting packages will permit you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your Internet sites. Memcached is among the most widely used accelerators as it can easily accelerate any API or database-driven website by caching requests and responses, thus the web server won't need to process identical requests over and over again. The platform is suitable for Internet sites designed with apps such as Joomla, Mambo or WordPress. Varnish is a powerful accelerator that caches any kind 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 very same website visitor opens them again. Varnish can certainly accelerate a website several times since it delivers content quicker than any web server. Node.js is a platform employed for scalable real-time applications such as chats, browser games or social networks. It processes information in little pieces the moment a user types anything, therefore it operates much more quickly than similar platforms in which users submit sizeable chunks of data which need time to be processed. You can choose the number of instances and the dedicated memory for each and every one of the 3 accelerators through your Control Panel.

Web Accelerators in VPS Hosting

We offer Memcached, Node.js and Varnish with all virtual private servers that are purchased with the Hepsia CP. Your server shall also include several hundred MBs of dedicated memory for these accelerators and the actual amount would depend on the package deal that you select. Memcached is used for script-driven sites as it caches database responses, thus decreasing the amount of queries a script sends to its database. It could be used for any script such as WordPress or Joomla. Node.js is an effective platform for developing web applications such as booking Internet sites and chats. The real-time interaction between end users and a server is performed by processing little parts of data as soon any user inputs anything on the site. In contrast, other platforms wait for users to input a lot of data before they process it, consequently they work slower. Varnish is a multi-purpose accelerator which caches entire web pages and delivers them instead of the server at a considerably quicker rate. It's also referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy and it can easily speed up any sort of site.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Web Hosting

Memcached, Varnish and Node.js are available with all dedicated servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting CP and depending on the package deal that you choose, you will also have several gigabytes of dedicated memory for them. Memcached can reduce the web server load by lowering the amount of queries which have to be addressed as it caches database calls and responses. You shall be able to use it on any website which uses an API or a database - as an example, any website created with WordPress or Joomla. Varnish could boost the performance of any kind of site by caching whole webpages the first time a guest opens them. The accelerator provides the webpages if the exact same visitor opens them later and given that it does that much faster than the hosting server, the visitor will be able to surf your site at least a few times faster. For this reason Varnish is often called an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is an advanced platform that'll allow you to develop booking websites, web chats and other applications where real-time server-user interaction is needed. It processes the information in small bits as the user fills different boxes and does not wait for all boxes to be filled and processed as one sizeable chunk of data, which makes Node.js much faster than similar programs.
