A web accelerator is a piece of software that accelerates an Internet site usually by caching content and providing it instead of the web server. Such programs may be employed for both static and dynamic websites as there are various accelerators which can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The advantage of employing a web accelerator is that a given website will perform substantially faster without employing more system resources. Just the opposite, this kind of a website will need significantly less resources to work as the web accelerator will tackle most requests rather than the web server. Contrary to many companies that don't offer web accelerators with their packages or offer only one, we offer three different ones that will permit you to speed up your websites regardless of their kind or content.
Web Accelerators in Shared Hosting
In case you buy one of our shared hosting
solutions, you will have three well-known web accelerators at your disposal and you'll be able to access them directly using the Hepsia Control Panel that is included with our solutions. Varnish is one of the most popular ones and it can tremendously accelerate any Internet site since it caches the web pages a website visitor opens for the first time and delivers them each time that website visitor opens them again. Since Varnish works way quicker than any hosting 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 server, so it is similar to Varnish, but is used predominantly for database-driven Internet sites. Since the website shall connect to its database much less, the overall hosting server load will be decreased notably. The last accelerator, Node.js, is employed for scalable online applications such as chats and booking websites because it processes data in real time the instant it is entered on the website by the users. Based on the plan you select, these accelerators could be available or may be an optional upgrade.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The Hepsia CP that comes with our semi-dedicated hosting
plans will allow you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your websites. Memcached is one of the most popular accelerators since it can effortlessly accelerate any API or database-driven site by caching requests and responses, therefore the web server will not have to process identical requests over and over again. The platform is ideal for Internet sites developed with programs such as Joomla™
, Mambo or WordPress. Varnish is an effective accelerator that caches any type of content and is also often called an HTTP reverse proxy. It caches pages which are opened by a visitor for the first time and delivers them every time that very same visitor opens them again. Varnish can easily accelerate a website several times simply because it delivers content faster than any web server. Node.js is a platform used for scalable real-time applications such as chats, web browser games or social networks. It processes info in smaller bits as soon as a user enters something, as a result it functions faster than similar platforms in which users submit massive pieces of information which require time to be processed. You can pick the number of instances and the dedicated memory for each of the 3 accelerators through your CP.
Web Accelerators in VPS Web Hosting
We provide Memcached, Node.js and Varnish with all virtual private servers
which are acquired with the Hepsia Control Panel. Your server will also feature a few hundred MBs of dedicated memory for these accelerators and the exact amount would be determined by the package that you select. Memcached is used for script-driven sites because it caches database responses, as a result lowering the number of queries which a script sends to its database. It could be used for any script including WordPress or Joomla™
. Node.js is a highly effective platform for building web apps such as booking sites and chats. The real-time interaction between end users and a server is conducted by processing little parts of info as soon any user enters anything on the webpage. In comparison, other platforms await users to input a lot of data before they process it, thus they function slower. Varnish is a multi-purpose accelerator that caches entire web pages and provides them instead of the web server at a considerably quicker rate. It's also referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy and it can speed up any kind of Internet site.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers Hosting
In case you obtain a dedicated server
from our company and you choose Hepsia as the hosting CP, you shall be able to use Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your websites. All packages include several gigabytes of memory dedicated to those accelerators and the exact amount depends on the plan you select. Node.js is employed for scalable online apps including browser games or hotel booking and it processes the information in real time as the user enters it, which makes it much quicker than similar platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you use it for a script-driven site, not only will the site work faster, but also the load on the web server will reduce because there will be less database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it's not limited to databases. Instead, it caches whole webpages once a visitor opens them and delivers them instead of the web server each time the same visitor opens them later on. Due to the fact that Varnish processes web requests much quicker than any hosting server, the efficiency of a site using this accelerator may increase up to 300%.
