A web accelerator is a server-side program that speeds up a website. Such a piece of software can work in different ways depending upon the site content, but in the typical case all such apps cache content and deliver it instead of the web server. That is valid for both static and dynamic websites because the cached content could be simple text or database responses and the benefit of using a web accelerator is not just the faster loading Internet site, but also the lessened overall load on the server. That way, you could use a lower-end hosting plan that will also cost less while your website visitors can still enjoy superior browsing speeds. Handful of firms provide web accelerators with their hosting deals and they usually offer only 1, while we offer three different ones that'll permit you to improve the performance of any type of website significantly.

Web Accelerators in Shared Hosting

In case you buy one of our shared hosting plans, you shall have three well-known web accelerators at your disposal and you shall be able to access them directly through the Hepsia Control Panel that is included with our packages. Varnish is one of the most popular ones and it can tremendously speed up any website because it caches the pages a visitor opens for the first time and delivers them each time that guest opens them again. Since Varnish works considerably faster than any web server, the loading speed of any site using the accelerator shall increase considerably. Memcached is employed to cache database and API calls and responses between a site visitor and a server, so it's comparable to Varnish, but is used primarily for database-driven websites. Considering that the website shall connect to its database much less, the overall web server load shall be decreased notably. The 3rd accelerator, Node.js, is used for scalable online programs including chats and booking sites as it processes information in real time as soon as it is entered on the website by the users. Depending on the package you pick, these accelerators could be available or might be an optional upgrade.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Hepsia CP which comes with our semi-dedicated hosting packages shall permit you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your Internet sites. Memcached is among the most widely used accelerators because it can easily increase the speed of any API or database-driven website by caching requests and responses, as a result the server shall not have to process identical requests over and over again. The platform is perfect for sites developed with apps such as Joomla, Mambo or WordPress. Varnish is a highly effective accelerator that caches any sort of content and is also known as an HTTP reverse proxy. It caches webpages which are opened by a website visitor for the first time and provides them every time that same website visitor opens them again. Varnish can easily speed up an Internet site several times because it delivers content quicker than any web server. Node.js is a platform used for scalable real-time programs such as chats, Internet browser games or social networks. It processes information in smaller pieces the instant a user types anything, therefore it functions much faster than similar platforms where users submit big pieces of data that require time to be processed. You'll be able to choose the number of instances and the dedicated memory for each of the 3 accelerators through your Control Panel.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers Hosting

In the event that you get a dedicated server from our company and you choose Hepsia as the hosting CP, you will be able to employ Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your websites. All packages include several gigabytes of memory dedicated to those accelerators and the specific amount depends on the plan that you select. Node.js is employed for scalable online apps such as browser games or hotel booking and it processes the data immediately as the client enters it, which makes it faster than comparable platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you employ it for a script-driven website, not simply will the website work faster, but also the load on the hosting server will decline since there will be considerably less database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it's not at all limited to databases. Instead, it caches whole web pages once a guest opens them and provides them instead of the web server each and every time the same visitor opens them later. Due to the fact that Varnish processes web requests faster than any web server, the overall performance of a website using this accelerator can increase as much as 300%.
