A web accelerator is a server-side app that quickens a site. Such a piece of software may work in different ways depending on the site content, but in the general situation all such programs cache content and deliver it instead of the web server. This is valid for both static and dynamic websites since the cached content can be simple text or database responses and the advantage of employing a web accelerator is not simply the faster loading site, but also the smaller overall load on the server. That way, you could employ a lower-end hosting solution that'll also cost less while your site visitors could still enjoy fast browsing speeds. Several firms supply web accelerators with their hosting plans and they often offer just one, while we offer three different ones that will allow you to boost the performance of any kind of site substantially.

Web Accelerators in Hosting

When you get one of our hosting solutions, you'll have 3 widely used web accelerators at your disposal and you will be able to access them directly through the Hepsia Control Panel which is included with our plans. Varnish is one of the most widely used ones and it could tremendously speed up any website because it caches the web pages a site visitor opens for the first time and provides them each and every time that guest opens them again. Given that Varnish functions faster than any web server, the loading speed of any site using the accelerator shall improve considerably. Memcached is used to cache database and API calls and responses between a visitor and a hosting server, so it is comparable to Varnish, but is used largely for database-driven Internet sites. Considering that the site will connect to its database significantly less, the overall hosting server load shall be minimized considerably. The last accelerator, Node.js, is employed for scalable online apps including chats and booking websites as it processes data in real time as soon as it is entered on the site by the users. Dependant upon the plan you choose, these accelerators could be available or could be an optional upgrade.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

You'll be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the Internet sites hosted within your semi-dedicated server account based on the nature of the site content. Memcached, for example, caches database requests, therefore it's an excellent choice for any script application like WordPress or Joomla. This way, the database server shall not need to process the very same request if a number of users open a page with the same content. Varnish is similar, but it's a general-purpose accelerator as it caches any kind of content the first time a visitor opens a site. In case this web page is opened again by the very same guest, it shall be provided by Varnish at a much better speed compared to the web server. Employing this web accelerator will lessen the load created by your sites tremendously. Last, but not least, Node.js shall enable you to build scalable web apps like hotel booking sites or chats. Its advantage over comparable platforms is that it doesn't wait for a customer to submit a substantial piece of info, but processes whatever the user is entering in real-time. The three web accelerators are available within the Hepsia CP and you will be able to select how many instances of every one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they can use.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

In case you buy a dedicated server from our firm and you opt for Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel, you will be able to use Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your websites. All solutions come with several gigabytes of memory dedicated to those accelerators and the actual amount depends on the package deal you select. 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 faster than similar platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you use it for a script-driven Internet site, not simply will the site work faster, but also the load on the server will decline as there shall be less database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it's not at all limited to databases. Instead, it caches whole pages once a visitor opens them and provides them instead of the web server whenever the same visitor opens them afterwards. Because Varnish processes web requests faster than any server, the efficiency of a site using this accelerator may increase up to 300%.
