A web accelerator is an application that speeds up an Internet site, typically by caching its content. There are different types of accelerators, but in the common case this kind of apps cache static content or database responses and supply them in place of the web server, hence boosting the performance of a website considerably. The latter is possible because accelerator programs work faster than a hosting server and not only will a website operate better, but the server load shall also decrease, which will permit you to run heavy Internet sites with less resources. We offer three web accelerators with our hosting plans, which will enable you to increase the speed of any type of Internet site. In comparison, most website hosting firms don't offer any web accelerators or provide only one, which limits your choice of web apps if you want to use this type of software.

Web Accelerators in Shared Website Hosting

When you buy one of our shared website hosting packages, you will have three widely used web accelerators at your disposal and you will be able to access them directly through the Hepsia CP that comes with our packages. Varnish is one of the most popular ones and it can tremendously accelerate any Internet site because it caches the pages that a site visitor opens for the first time and delivers them each and every time that visitor opens them again. Given that Varnish works considerably faster than any web server, the loading speed of any website using the accelerator will grow noticeably. Memcached is employed to cache database and API calls and responses between a website visitor and a server, so it's similar to Varnish, but is used primarily for database-driven Internet sites. Considering that the website shall connect to its database significantly less, the overall hosting server load will be minimized significantly. The third accelerator, Node.js, is employed for scalable online applications like chats and booking sites since it processes info in real time the instant it is entered on the website by the users. Dependant upon the package you pick, these accelerators might be available or may be an optional upgrade.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated hosting plans will permit you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js - 3 of the most powerful web accelerators available on the market. Memcached is employed to cache database and API calls and responses, thus it can easily boost any script-driven site. You can use it for any Internet site created with WordPress or Joomla, for instance. Varnish is also known as an HTTP reverse proxy and it's a general-purpose caching platform which could be employed for any kind of Internet sites. Depending on the content, it could boost the performance of a site as much as 300%. Node.js is a sophisticated system used to create scalable Internet programs which process information in real time for instance booking portals. Its advantage is that different from similar platforms, it processes data constantly and in small bits instead of waiting for the user to submit one massive 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 will use.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Hosting

If you acquire a dedicated server from our firm and you pick Hepsia as the hosting CP, you'll be able to use Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your sites. All solutions include several gigabytes of memory dedicated to these accelerators and the exact amount depends on the plan you choose. Node.js is employed for scalable online programs like browser games or hotel booking and it processes the info instantly as the user enters it, which makes it considerably faster than very similar platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you employ it for a script-driven site, not only will the website work faster, but also the load on the hosting server will minimize as there shall be considerably less database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it's not limited to databases. Rather, it caches entire webpages once a website visitor opens them and provides them instead of the server every time the same visitor opens them later on. Due to the fact that Varnish processes web requests faster than any server, the efficiency of an Internet site using this accelerator may increase as much as 300%.
