A web accelerator is an application that speeds up a site, usually by caching its content. There are different kinds of accelerators, but in the common case this kind of applications cache static content or database responses and deliver them instead of the server, thus improving the performance of an Internet site noticeably. The latter is possible because accelerator apps work faster than a web server and not simply will a site function better, but the server load shall also minimize, which will allow you to run heavy websites with less resources. We offer 3 web accelerators with our hosting plans, which will allow you to increase the speed of any type of website. In comparison, most hosting companies don't provide any web accelerators or offer one, which limits your choice of web applications in case you want to use this kind of software.

Web Accelerators in Website Hosting

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

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server packages will enable you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js - 3 of the most effective web accelerators on the market. Memcached is employed to cache database and API calls and responses, thus it could easily increase the speed of any script-driven website. You can use it for any Internet site created with WordPress or Joomla, for example. Varnish is also often called an HTTP reverse proxy and it is a general-purpose caching platform which may be used for any sort of sites. Based on the content, it could increase the performance of an Internet site as much as 300%. Node.js is an advanced system used to build scalable Internet apps which process info in real time for example booking portals. Its advantage is that in contrast to comparable platforms, it processes data constantly and in small parts as opposed to waiting for the user to submit one sizeable piece of data. The accelerators may be enabled for any site through the Hepsia CP and you shall be able to pick how many instances of each of them shall work and how much memory they shall use.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

If you order a dedicated server from our company and you pick Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel, you will 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 plan you choose. Node.js is employed for scalable online apps including browser games or hotel booking and it processes the information in real time as the client enters it, which makes it much faster than similar platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you use it for a script-driven site, not only will the website work faster, but also the load on the hosting server will reduce as there shall be less database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it is not limited to databases. Instead, it caches whole webpages once a visitor opens them and delivers them instead of the hosting server every time the same visitor opens them afterwards. Since Varnish processes web requests faster than any web server, the overall performance of a website using this accelerator could increase as much as 300%.
