A web accelerator is a software application that accelerates an Internet site usually by caching content and delivering it instead of the web server. Such apps may be employed for both dynamic and static websites since there are various accelerators which can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The advantage of using a web accelerator is that a given site shall perform significantly faster without using extra resources. Just the opposite, this type of a site will require much less resources to operate as the web accelerator will deal with most requests instead of the hosting server. Contrary to many businesses that do not offer web accelerators with their solutions or offer only 1, we offer 3 different ones that'll permit you to speed up your websites regardless of their kind or content.

Web Accelerators in Shared Hosting

When you buy one of our shared hosting plans, you'll have 3 well-known web accelerators at your disposal and you will be able to access them directly through the Hepsia Control Panel which is included with our plans. Varnish is one of the most popular ones and it can significantly accelerate any site since it caches the pages that a website visitor opens for the first time and provides them every time that visitor opens them again. Given that Varnish works faster than any web server, the loading speed of any website using the accelerator will increase noticeably. Memcached is employed to cache database and API calls and responses between a site visitor and a web server, so it's similar to Varnish, but is used predominantly for database-driven sites. Since the site will connect to its database significantly less, the overall server load shall be minimized notably. The third accelerator, Node.js, is used for scalable online applications like chats and booking websites since it processes info in real time the moment it is entered on the site by the users. Based on the plan you pick, these accelerators may be available or might be an optional upgrade.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the Internet sites hosted within your semi-dedicated hosting account based on the nature of the website content. Memcached, for example, caches database requests, therefore it's a fantastic choice for any script application like WordPress or Joomla. That way, the database hosting server will not have to process the same request if multiple users open a website with the same content. Varnish is very similar, but it's a general-purpose accelerator as it caches any type of content the first time a guest opens a site. If this page is opened again by the exact same visitor, it shall be delivered by Varnish at a greater speed compared to the web server. Employing this web accelerator will reduce the load produced by your sites considerably. Last, but not least, Node.js shall permit you to produce scalable web applications such as hotel booking websites or chats. Its advantage over comparable platforms is that it does not wait for a user to submit a substantial piece of info, but processes whatever the customer is typing in real-time. The 3 web accelerators are available inside the Hepsia CP and you'll be able to pick how many instances of each one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they may use.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Hosting

If you obtain a dedicated server from our firm and you pick Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel, you will be able to employ Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your Internet sites. All solutions come with several gigabytes of memory dedicated to these accelerators and the exact amount depends on the package you select. Node.js is employed for scalable online apps like browser games or hotel booking and it processes the data in real time as the user enters it, which makes it much 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 Internet site work faster, but also the load on the hosting server will minimize as there will be considerably less database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it's not at all limited to databases. Instead, it caches entire websites once a website visitor opens them and delivers them instead of the server each time the same visitor opens them later on. Since Varnish processes web requests considerably faster than any hosting server, the overall performance of an Internet site using this accelerator can increase up to 300%.
