A web accelerator is a software program that speeds up a website usually by caching content and delivering it instead of the web server. Such applications could be used for both static and dynamic Internet sites because there are various accelerators which can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The benefit of employing a web accelerator is that a given site shall perform noticeably faster without employing extra system resources. Quite the opposite, this kind of a site will need much less resources to operate since the web accelerator will deal with most requests rather than the server. Unlike many companies that don't offer web accelerators with their plans or offer only one, we offer three different ones that will permit you to speed up your websites regardless of their style or content.

Web Accelerators in Shared Hosting

Our shared hosting solutions come with three web accelerators which you could use depending on the Internet sites that you'd like to run. Memcached is used to cache database or API calls and responses, which can significantly improve the functionality of dynamic websites. Varnish is a popular HTTP accelerator that caches webpages and delivers them to the website visitors much quicker than the hosting server after the first time they open them. Node.js is an event-driven platform employed for scalable real-time apps for example booking sites. Based on the web hosting solution you select, these three applications may already be included or might be optional upgrades. In any case, you'll 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 service providers, including ours, and they can raise the speed of your web apps substantially.

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 site content. Memcached, for example, caches database requests, therefore it's an excellent option for any script program such as WordPress or Joomla. That way, the database hosting server will not need to process exactly the same request if many users open a webpage with the same content. Varnish is similar, but it is a general-purpose accelerator since it caches any kind of content the first time a visitor opens a site. In case that page is opened again by the exact same website visitor, it shall be delivered by Varnish at a much better speed compared to the server. Employing this web accelerator can minimize the load produced by your sites substantially. Last, but not least, Node.js will enable you to create scalable web programs like hotel booking websites or chats. Its advantage over very similar platforms is that it does not wait for a customer to submit a large piece of information, but processes whatever the user is inputting in real-time. The three web accelerators are available in the Hepsia Control Panel and you'll be able to select how many instances of every one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they can employ.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

If you choose Hepsia as the hosting CP for your new dedicated server, you will have Memcached, Varnish and Node.js at your disposal for increasing the speed of your websites. Memcached will be able to decrease the load on the web server by lowering the queries your script-driven websites make since it caches database responses. This web accelerator is great for dynamic Internet sites designed with WordPress, Joomla and comparable scripts. Varnish, which is known as an HTTP reverse proxy, caches whole websites the first time a new visitor opens them. It can be used to speed up any type of site because it delivers the cached content considerably faster than the server each time a guest opens the same page again. You can use Node.js for online programs that call for real-time server-client interaction like online chats or booking websites. Unlike other platforms which await the user to input everything on a form, Node.js processes the info piece by piece as the user fills every box, so it operates considerably faster and more effectively. All dedicated server solutions include several gigabytes of memory dedicated to those three web accelerators.
