A web accelerator is a server-side application that quickens a site. Such a piece of software can function in different ways based on the website content, but in the typical case all such apps cache content and deliver it instead of the web server. This is valid for both static and dynamic sites because the cached content may be simple text or database responses and the reward of employing a web accelerator is not just the faster loading website, but also the smaller overall load on the hosting server. This way, you'll be able to use a lower-end hosting plan that'll also cost less while your website visitors can still enjoy high browsing speeds. Several businesses offer web accelerators with their hosting packages and they often offer only 1, while we offer 3 different ones that'll permit you to boost the performance of any sort of site noticeably.

Web Accelerators in Web Hosting

If you buy one of our web hosting plans, you'll have 3 widely used web accelerators at your disposal and you'll be able to access them directly via the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with our plans. Varnish is one of the most widely used ones and it could tremendously accelerate any website as it caches the web pages a site visitor opens for the first time and delivers them each time that guest opens them again. Given that Varnish functions way quicker than any web server, the loading speed of any Internet site using the accelerator will raise substantially. Memcached is employed to cache database and API calls and responses between an Internet site visitor and a hosting server, so it's much like Varnish, but is employed primarily for database-driven sites. Because the Internet site will connect to its database significantly less, the overall server load will be decreased notably. The last accelerator, Node.js, is used for scalable online apps like chats and booking sites since it processes information in real time the instant it is entered on the site by the users. Dependant upon the plan you select, these accelerators may be available or could be an optional upgrade.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the Internet sites hosted in your semi-dedicated server account depending on the nature of the website content. Memcached, for example, caches database requests, therefore it is a superb choice for any script application such as WordPress or Joomla. This way, the database web server shall not have to process the same request if a number of users open a page with the same content. Varnish is comparable, 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 web page is opened again by the exact same website visitor, it'll be delivered by Varnish at a much higher speed compared to the hosting server. Employing this web accelerator shall minimize the load produced by your websites significantly. Last, but not least, Node.js shall permit you to create scalable web applications like hotel booking Internet sites or chats. Its advantage over comparable platforms is that it doesn't wait for a user to submit a sizable piece of data, but processes whatever the customer is inputting in real-time. The 3 web accelerators are available inside the Hepsia CP and you shall be able to choose how many instances of each and every one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they can employ.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

In case you choose Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel for your new dedicated server, you shall have Memcached, Varnish and Node.js readily available for accelerating your sites. Memcached can lessen the load on the web server by lowering the queries your script-driven sites make as it caches database responses. This web accelerator is perfect for dynamic websites developed with WordPress, Joomla and comparable scripts. Varnish, which is referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy, caches entire pages the first time a new visitor opens them. It can be used to speed up any type of website since it delivers the cached content faster than the web server any time a guest opens the same site again. You could use Node.js for online apps which require real-time server-client interaction such as online chats or booking sites. Unlike other platforms which wait for the user to input everything on a form, Node.js processes the data bit by bit as the user fills each and every box, so it works faster and more efficiently. All dedicated server plans include several gigabytes of memory dedicated to those 3 web accelerators.
