A web accelerator is a software program that accelerates a site usually by caching content and providing it instead of the web server. Such applications could be used for both static and dynamic Internet sites because there are a variety of accelerators which can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The best thing about employing a web accelerator is that a given site shall perform considerably faster without employing more system resources. On the contrary, this kind of a site will require significantly less resources to operate because the web accelerator will handle most requests instead of the server. Contrary to many businesses that don't offer web accelerators with their plans or offer one, we offer three different ones which will allow you to speed up your websites regardless of their style or content.

Web Accelerators in Cloud Hosting

Our cloud hosting plans include three web accelerators that you could employ depending on the Internet sites that you would like to run. Memcached is used to cache database or API calls and responses, which can considerably enhance the performance of dynamic websites. Varnish is a popular HTTP accelerator which caches webpages and delivers them to the website visitors considerably faster than the web server after the first time they open them. Node.js is an event-driven platform employed for scalable real-time applications including booking websites. Depending on the hosting plan you select, these 3 applications may already be included or may be optional upgrades. In any case, you will be able to pick how many instances of each one of them will be at your disposal and what amount of memory they ought to employ. These accelerators are offered only by a handful of hosting firms, including ours, and they could raise the speed of your web apps significantly.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

You shall be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the Internet sites hosted in your semi-dedicated server account in accordance with the nature of the site content. Memcached, in particular, caches database requests, so it is a superb choice for any script application such as WordPress or Joomla. That way, the database web server shall not need to process the exact same request if a number of users open a webpage with the same content. Varnish is comparable, but it's a general-purpose accelerator as it caches any type of content the first time a guest opens a site. If this webpage is opened again by the very same visitor, it shall be delivered by Varnish at a greater speed compared to the web server. Employing this web accelerator shall reduce the load created by your websites considerably. Last, but not least, Node.js shall permit you to create scalable web apps like hotel booking websites or chats. Its advantage over very similar platforms is that it doesn't wait for a client to submit a sizable piece of info, but processes whatever the customer is entering in real-time. The 3 web accelerators are available within the Hepsia CP and you shall be able to select how many instances of each one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they can use.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

In case you order a dedicated server from our company and you pick Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel, you'll be able to use Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your sites. All solutions come with several gigabytes of memory dedicated to those accelerators and the specific amount depends on the package that you choose. Node.js is used for scalable online programs including browser games or hotel booking and it processes the data immediately as the client enters it, which makes it faster than similar platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you use it for a script-driven Internet site, not only will the website speed up, but also the load on the hosting server will decline as 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 entire websites once a guest opens them and delivers them instead of the hosting server each time the same visitor opens them later. Because Varnish processes web requests much quicker than any web server, the performance of a website using this accelerator can increase as much as 300%.
