A web accelerator is a piece of software which speeds up an Internet site usually by caching content and providing it instead of the hosting server. Such programs may be used for both static and dynamic Internet sites as there are various accelerators that can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The main advantage of using a web accelerator is that a given Internet site shall perform substantially faster without employing more resources. Just the opposite, such a site will need much less resources to operate since the web accelerator will take care of most requests instead of the server. In contrast to many companies which do not offer web accelerators with their solutions or offer one, we offer three different ones which will permit you to speed up your Internet sites regardless of their kind or content.

Web Accelerators in Cloud Website Hosting

Our cloud website hosting plans feature 3 web accelerators which you will be able to employ depending on the websites that you'd like to run. Memcached is employed to cache database or API calls and responses, which can greatly boost the efficiency of dynamic websites. Varnish is a popular HTTP accelerator that caches pages and delivers them to the visitors much faster than the hosting server after the first time they open them. Node.js is an event-driven platform used for scalable real-time apps including booking websites. Based on the Internet hosting plan you choose, these three applications might already be included or could be optional upgrades. In either case, you'll be able to pick how many instances of each of them shall be at your disposal and how much memory they should use. These accelerators are provided only by a handful of hosting service providers, including ours, and they can raise the speed of your web apps significantly.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the sites hosted within your semi-dedicated server account depending on the nature of the website content. Memcached, for example, caches database requests, therefore it is an excellent option for any script app like WordPress or Joomla. This way, the database web server will not need to process the very same request if multiple users open a webpage with the same content. Varnish is similar, but it's a general-purpose accelerator because it caches any sort of content the first time a website visitor opens a page. If that webpage is opened again by the very same website visitor, it'll be provided by Varnish at a much better speed compared to the hosting server. Employing this web accelerator will lessen the load created by your sites tremendously. Last, but not least, Node.js shall permit you to create scalable web apps such as hotel booking Internet sites or chats. Its advantage over very similar platforms is that it does not wait for a user to submit a large piece of information, but processes whatever the user is inputting in real-time. The three web accelerators are available inside the Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to choose how many instances of each one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they can employ.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

In case you pick Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel for your new dedicated server, you'll have Memcached, Varnish and Node.js at your disposal for speeding up your Internet sites. Memcached can easily 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 good for dynamic Internet sites created with WordPress, Joomla and comparable scripts. Varnish, which is often called an HTTP reverse proxy, caches whole websites the first time a new visitor opens them. It may be used to speed up any kind of Internet site because it delivers the cached content faster than the web server each time a customer opens the same page again. You can employ Node.js for online apps that demand real-time server-client interaction including online chats or booking sites. In contrast to other platforms that await the user to input everything on a form, Node.js processes the info little by little as the user fills each box, so it works considerably quicker and more effectively. All dedicated server plans include several gigabytes of memory dedicated to those three web accelerators.
