A web accelerator is a software application that accelerates an Internet site typically by caching content and supplying it instead of the server. Such applications could be employed for both static and dynamic sites because there are different accelerators which can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The best thing about using a web accelerator is that a given website will perform substantially faster without employing more system resources. Just the opposite, such a site will need much less resources to operate because the web accelerator will take care of most requests instead of the hosting server. Unlike many firms which do not offer web accelerators with their solutions or offer only 1, we offer three different ones which will allow you to speed up your sites irrespective of their kind or content.

Web Accelerators in Website Hosting

If you host your Internet sites in a website hosting account from us, you'll have three popular web accelerators to pick from if you'd like to boost the sites' efficiency. Memcached is employed for database-driven websites and it caches the calls and requests between a website and its database, so it can decrease the load of such sites tremendously. Varnish caches whole web pages the first time a site visitor opens them and provides them from there on if the same website visitor opens them again. It does that considerably faster than the hosting server, so it can easily boost the loading speed of any website as much as 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time applications which operates on the web server and not within the visitor's Internet browser. It is used for accommodation booking, chats and other apps where loads of data needs to be processed in real time. The availability of those accelerators depends on the hosting package which you choose - they could come by default or as an upgrade. In both cases, you shall be able to add more instances or more memory for each one of them.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

The Hepsia CP which comes with our semi-dedicated server packages shall permit you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your Internet sites. Memcached is among the most widely used accelerators because it can accelerate any API or database-driven site by caching requests and responses, therefore the server will not need to process identical requests again and again. The platform is perfect for Internet sites designed with applications 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 webpages which are opened by a site visitor for the first time and delivers them every time that very same site visitor opens them again. Varnish can easily accelerate an Internet site several times simply because it delivers content faster than any server. Node.js is a platform used for scalable real-time applications such as chats, browser games or social networks. It processes information in smaller pieces the moment a user types something, so it functions much faster than similar platforms in which users submit sizeable pieces of data that 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 via your CP.

Web Accelerators in VPS Servers

All VPS servers which are integrated with the Hepsia CP come with Varnish, Memcached and Node.js already included and you will have several hundred MBs of dedicated memory for them by default. Varnish, that is also known as an HTTP reverse proxy, caches pages the first time a visitor opens them and provides them if that visitor opens them again, therefore the server will not need to perform any action. Due to the fact that Varnish works faster than any hosting server, a site using this accelerator will operate several times quicker. Memcached is a platform that caches database calls and responses and it's employed for WordPress, Joomla and other script-driven apps that store their content in a database. Node.js is an efficient platform for developing scalable web apps. Any information on a site that employs Node.js is processed in real time, which makes it an excellent choice for dining and accommodation booking websites, web-based chats, web browser games, and so forth.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

In the event that you get a dedicated server from our firm and you select Hepsia as the hosting CP, you will be able to use Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your sites. All plans feature several gigabytes of memory dedicated to those accelerators and the specific amount depends on the package that you choose. Node.js is employed for scalable online apps such as browser games or hotel booking and it processes the info right away as the client enters it, which makes it faster than very similar platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you use it for a script-driven website, not only will the Internet site work faster, but also the load on the web server will decrease because there will be a lesser amount of database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it's not limited to databases. Rather, it caches whole web pages once a guest opens them and provides them instead of the web server each time the same visitor opens them afterwards. Because Varnish processes web requests much faster than any web server, the performance of an Internet site using this accelerator could increase up to 300%.
