A web accelerator is a software which speeds up a site, usually by caching its content. There are different sorts of accelerators, but in the general case this sort of programs cache static content or database responses and provide them in lieu of the server, hence improving the performance of a site noticeably. The latter is possible because accelerator applications work faster than a web server and not simply will an Internet site function better, but the server load will also decline, which will allow you to run heavy sites with less resources. We provide three web accelerators with our hosting solutions, which will allow you to accelerate any kind of website. In comparison, most hosting companies don't provide any web accelerators or offer just one, which limits your choice of web applications in case you would like to use this kind of software.

Web Accelerators in Cloud Hosting

Our cloud hosting plans come with three web accelerators which you will be able to use depending on the websites that you'd like to run. Memcached is employed to cache database or API calls and responses, which can significantly boost the efficiency of dynamic websites. Varnish is a popular HTTP accelerator that caches pages and delivers them to the site visitors considerably faster than the hosting server after the first time they open them. Node.js is an event-driven platform used for scalable real-time applications including booking websites. Depending on the Internet hosting package you choose, these three applications could already be included or could be optional upgrades. Regardless, you will be able to select how many instances of every one of them will be at your disposal and how much memory they should employ. These accelerators are provided only by a handful of web hosting companies, including ours, and they can boost the speed of your web applications considerably.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

You shall be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the websites 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 many users open a page with the same content. Varnish is similar, but it is a general-purpose accelerator because it caches any kind of content the first time a website visitor opens an Internet site. In case that webpage is opened again by the very same guest, it will be delivered by Varnish at a much higher speed compared to the web server. Employing this web accelerator will decrease the load created by your sites considerably. Last, but not least, Node.js will enable you to create scalable web applications such as hotel booking websites or chats. Its advantage over very similar platforms is that it does not wait for a user to submit a large piece of info, but processes whatever the customer is inputting in real-time. The three web accelerators are available within 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'll employ.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

In case you obtain a dedicated server from us and you opt for Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel, you will be able to employ Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your Internet sites. All plans include several gigabytes of memory dedicated to those accelerators and the exact amount depends on the plan you select. Node.js is used for scalable online programs like browser games or hotel booking and it processes the information in real time as the client enters it, which makes it much quicker than comparable platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you use it for a script-driven site, not simply will the website speed up, but also the load on the server will decrease since there shall be a lesser amount of database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it is not limited to databases. Instead, 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 on. Since Varnish processes web requests much quicker than any hosting server, the overall performance of a website using this accelerator can increase as much as 300%.
