A web accelerator is a software program which speeds up a website usually by caching content and delivering it instead of the server. Such apps could be employed for both static and dynamic sites because there are a variety of accelerators which can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The main advantage of using a web accelerator is that a given website shall perform significantly faster without using additional system resources. Just the opposite, this kind of a site will require significantly less resources to work since the web accelerator will tackle most requests instead of the server. Contrary to many companies which do not offer web accelerators with their solutions or offer just one, we offer 3 different ones that will enable you to speed up your websites whatever their style or content.
Web Accelerators in Cloud Hosting
If you get one of our cloud hosting solutions, you will have 3 widely used web accelerators at your disposal and you shall be able to access them directly via the Hepsia Control Panel which is included with our plans. Varnish is one of the most popular ones and it can greatly increase the speed of any site since it caches the pages a visitor opens for the first time and provides them each and every time that website visitor opens them again. Because Varnish operates noticeably faster than any hosting server, the loading speed of any website using the accelerator shall grow significantly. Memcached is used to cache database and API calls and responses between an Internet site visitor and a hosting server, so it's comparable to Varnish, but is employed predominantly for database-driven websites. Because the site shall connect to its database way less, the overall server load will be reduced substantially. The 3rd accelerator, Node.js, is employed for scalable online apps like chats and booking websites as it processes information in real time the instant it is entered on the site by the users. Depending on the package you pick, these accelerators could be available or may be an optional upgrade.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server packages shall permit you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js - 3 of the most powerful web accelerators available on the market. Memcached is employed to cache database and API calls and responses, so it can easily increase the speed of any script-driven website. You can use it for any website created with WordPress or Joomla, for instance. Varnish is also often called an HTTP reverse proxy and it's a general-purpose caching platform that could be employed for any kind of sites. Based on the content, it can raise the performance of a website close to 300%. Node.js is a sophisticated system used to build scalable Internet apps that process data in real time such as booking portals. Its advantage is that different from similar platforms, it processes information constantly and in small parts rather than waiting for the user to submit one large piece of data. The accelerators could be enabled for any website via the Hepsia Control Panel and you shall be able to pick how many instances of each one of them shall work and how much memory they'll employ.
Web Accelerators in VPS Servers
If you obtain a VPS server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to employ Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your websites. All three accelerators are integrated within our solutions by default and feature dedicated memory of a few hundred MBs. Node.js is used to build scalable apps where real-time interaction is needed - booking Internet sites, online games, chats, etc. It processes the info in little bits as the end user is entering it, as a result it operates much faster than other platforms that wait for the end users to enter one big part of information. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator which works as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it in case the same site visitor opens the same website again, which can certainly speed any Internet site several times because Varnish operates faster than any hosting server. Memcached is used for caching API and database responses, so it is ideal for script-driven sites such as WordPress and Joomla. This web accelerator can decrease the load on your server because it will reduced the number of database queries that your websites make.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers
In case you order a dedicated server from our company and you opt for Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel, you shall be able to use 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 package that you choose. Node.js is employed for scalable online applications such as browser games or hotel booking and it processes the info immediately as the user enters it, which makes it much faster than very similar platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you use it for a script-driven Internet site, not only will the website speed up, but also the load on the server will decrease as there shall be a lesser amount of database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it's not limited to databases. Instead, it caches entire webpages once a guest opens them and delivers them instead of the web server every time the same visitor opens them afterwards. As Varnish processes web requests much faster than any hosting server, the performance of a website using this accelerator can increase up to 300%.
