A web accelerator is a software application which speeds up a website typically by caching content and delivering it instead of the hosting server. Such programs can be employed for both dynamic and static sites since there are various 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 more system resources. Just the opposite, such a site will need a lesser amount of resources to operate as the web accelerator will tackle most requests rather than the web server. Contrary to many companies that do not offer web accelerators with their solutions or offer only one, we offer 3 different ones which will permit you to speed up your sites regardless of their kind or content.

Web Accelerators in Cloud Web Hosting

We offer three of the most well-known web accelerators together with our cloud web hosting solutions and based on what plan you will select 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 used for any kind of website. It caches the pages the first time a website visitor opens them and delivers them at a considerably faster speed compared to the web server every time that a website visitor opens them again. Memcached is employed to cache API and database calls, so it can increase the speed of dynamic websites like online stores, discussion boards or social networks. Node.js is used for scalable web apps and it functions in real-time, which makes it perfect for server-side data processing - chats, browser games, booking portals, etc. You'll be able to pick just how much memory these accelerators shall employ and how many instances of each one will run from your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You'll be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the sites hosted inside your semi-dedicated hosting account based on the nature of the website content. Memcached, for instance, caches database requests, therefore it is a superb choice for any script application like WordPress or Joomla. This way, the database hosting server won't need to process the exact same request if multiple users open a website with the same content. Varnish is very similar, but it is a general-purpose accelerator because it caches any type of content the first time a visitor opens an Internet site. If that webpage is opened again by the very same website visitor, it will be delivered by Varnish at a much higher speed compared to the web server. Employing this web accelerator shall minimize the load produced by your sites substantially. Last, but not least, Node.js will permit you to produce scalable web programs like hotel booking sites or chats. Its advantage over similar platforms is that it doesn't wait for a customer to submit a large piece of info, but processes whatever the client is inputting in real-time. The 3 web accelerators are available inside the Hepsia Control Panel and you shall be able to choose how many instances of each one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they'll employ.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Web Hosting

In the event that you order a dedicated server from our firm and you opt for Hepsia as the hosting CP, you shall be able to employ Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your Internet sites. All solutions feature several gigabytes of memory dedicated to those accelerators and the exact amount depends on the plan that you choose. Node.js is employed for scalable online applications like browser games or hotel booking and it processes the data immediately as the user enters it, which makes it much faster than similar platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you use it for a script-driven website, not only will the site work faster, but also the load on the hosting server will decline since there shall be fewer database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it's not at all limited to databases. Rather, it caches whole webpages once a guest opens them and provides them instead of the server whenever the same visitor opens them later. Because Varnish processes web requests faster than any hosting server, the overall performance of a site using this accelerator may increase as much as 300%.
