A web accelerator is a software application which accelerates an Internet site typically by caching content and delivering it instead of the web server. Such applications may be employed for both static and dynamic sites as there are different accelerators that can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The advantage of using a web accelerator is that a given Internet site will perform substantially faster without employing additional resources. Just the opposite, such a site will need significantly less resources to function since the web accelerator will take care of most requests instead of the server. Unlike many firms that don't offer web accelerators with their solutions or offer just one, we offer 3 different ones which will allow you to speed up your sites regardless of their style or content.

Web Accelerators in Cloud Web Hosting

We offer 3 of the most popular web accelerators together with our cloud web hosting solutions and depending on what plan you'll pick when you sign up, they may already be available or they might be an optional upgrade. Varnish is the most well-known one of them and it may be employed for any sort of site. It caches the web pages the first time a visitor opens them and delivers them at a much faster speed compared to the web server every time that a website visitor opens them again. Memcached is used to cache API and database calls, so it can easily increase the speed of dynamic Internet sites such as online stores, discussion boards or social networks. Node.js is employed for scalable web programs and it operates in real-time, which makes it ideal for server-side data processing - chats, browser games, booking portals, etc. You will be able to select how much memory these accelerators will use and how many instances of each one will run from your Hepsia website hosting CP.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

You'll be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the sites hosted inside your semi-dedicated server account based on the nature of the website content. Memcached, for example, caches database requests, therefore it's a superb choice for any script application like WordPress or Joomla. This way, the database server will not have to process the very same request if multiple users open a page with the same content. Varnish is comparable, but it is a general-purpose accelerator because it caches any sort of content the first time a website visitor opens a site. If this webpage is opened again by the very same guest, it will be provided by Varnish at a much better speed compared to the hosting server. Using this web accelerator shall lessen the load generated by your sites drastically. Last, but not least, Node.js shall enable you to produce scalable web applications like hotel booking Internet sites or chats. Its advantage over very similar platforms is that it doesn't wait for a client to submit a large piece of info, but processes whatever the user is inputting in real-time. The 3 web accelerators are available inside the Hepsia Control Panel and you shall be able to select how many instances of each and every one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they'll employ.

Web Accelerators in VPS Servers

We provide Memcached, Node.js and Varnish with all VPS servers which are purchased with the Hepsia CP. Your server will also come with several hundred megabytes of dedicated memory for these accelerators and the particular amount would depend on the package deal that you select. Memcached is employed for script-driven Internet sites as it caches database responses, thus decreasing the amount of queries a script sends to its database. It can be used for any script like WordPress or Joomla. Node.js is a highly effective platform for building web programs such as booking sites and chats. The real-time interaction between users and a server is carried out by processing smaller bits of data as soon any user inputs anything on the site. By comparison, other platforms await users to input a lot of data before they process it, therefore they function slower. Varnish is a multi-purpose accelerator which caches entire web pages and provides them instead of the web server at a faster rate. It's also known as an HTTP reverse proxy and it can easily speed up any kind of Internet site.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

Memcached, Varnish and Node.js are available with all dedicated servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and based on the package deal which you choose, you shall also have several gigabytes of dedicated memory for them. Memcached can reduce the web server load by lowering the amount of queries which need to be dealt with since it caches database calls and responses. You'll be able to use it on any site that uses an API or a database - for instance, any website built with WordPress or Joomla. Varnish can easily boost the performance of any type of site by caching whole pages the first time a guest opens them. The accelerator delivers the web pages if the very same visitor opens them afterwards and considering the fact that it does that much quicker than the hosting server, the website visitor will be able to browse your site at least a couple of times faster. That's why Varnish is occasionally categorised as an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is an innovative platform that will permit you to develop booking websites, web chats and other programs in which real-time server-user interaction is required. It processes the info in tiny pieces as the user fills different boxes and doesn't wait for all boxes to be filled and processed as one massive chunk of info, which makes Node.js considerably faster than similar applications.
