A web accelerator is a program which quickens an Internet site, typically by caching its content. There are various types of accelerators, but in the general case this sort of programs cache static content or database responses and provide them in place of the web server, as a consequence boosting the performance of an Internet site significantly. The latter is possible because accelerator programs work faster than a web server and not only will a website work better, but the server load shall also decrease, which will enable you to run heavy Internet sites with less system resources. We offer three web accelerators with our hosting solutions, which will enable you to increase the speed of any type of website. In comparison, most web hosting businesses do not offer any web accelerators or offer only 1, which limits your choice of web applications in the event that you want to use this kind of software.

Web Accelerators in Shared Hosting

If you host your Internet sites inside a shared hosting account from us, you will have three popular web accelerators to select from if you'd like to enhance the sites' performance. Memcached is used for database-driven Internet sites and it caches the calls and requests between an Internet site and its database, so it can easily reduce the load of such sites substantially. Varnish caches entire web pages the first time a website visitor opens them and delivers them from there on if the same visitor opens them again. It does that much more quickly than the web server, so it could increase the loading speed of any website as much as 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time applications that functions on the server and not inside the visitor's web browser. It is employed for accommodation booking, chats and other programs where a lot of data should be processed in real time. The availability of the accelerators depends on the hosting plan that you select - they might come by default or as an upgrade. In each case, you'll be able to add more instances or more memory for each one of them.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

The Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with our semi-dedicated server plans shall permit you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your Internet sites. Memcached is among the most widely used accelerators as it can accelerate any API or database-driven site by caching requests and responses, as a result the hosting server shall not have to process identical requests time and time again. The platform is suitable for sites created with programs like Joomla, Mambo or WordPress. Varnish is an effective accelerator that caches any kind of content and is also often called an HTTP reverse proxy. It caches web pages that are opened by a visitor for the first time and delivers them every time that same website visitor opens them again. Varnish can easily accelerate an Internet site several times since it delivers content quicker than any hosting server. Node.js is a platform employed for scalable real-time apps such as chats, web browser games or social networks. It processes info in smaller bits as soon as a user types anything, as a result it operates faster than similar platforms in which users submit sizeable chunks of information which require time to be processed. You can select the number of instances and the dedicated memory for each of the three accelerators via your Control Panel.

Web Accelerators in VPS Servers

All VPS servers that are set up with the Hepsia Control Panel come with Varnish, Memcached and Node.js already included and you will have several hundred megabytes of dedicated memory for them by default. Varnish, that's also known as an HTTP reverse proxy, caches web pages the first time a website visitor opens them and provides them if that visitor opens them again, therefore the hosting server will not have to perform any action. As Varnish functions much quicker than any server, an Internet site employing this accelerator shall operate several times swifter. Memcached is a platform that caches database calls and responses and it's employed for WordPress, Joomla and other script-driven applications that store their content inside a database. Node.js is a powerful platform for creating scalable web apps. Any information on a website which uses Node.js is processed in real time, making it a fantastic choice for dining and accommodation booking websites, web-based chats, Internet browser games, etc.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

In the event that you order a dedicated server from us and you choose Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel, you'll be able to employ Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your Internet sites. All solutions come with several gigabytes of memory dedicated to these accelerators and the actual amount depends on the package that you select. Node.js is used for scalable online applications such as browser games or hotel booking and it processes the data right away as the user enters it, which makes it much faster than comparable platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you use it for a script-driven website, not only will the Internet site speed up, but also the load on the hosting server will minimize since there shall be less database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it is not limited to databases. Instead, it caches entire web pages once a guest opens them and provides them instead of the hosting server whenever the same visitor opens them later. Since Varnish processes web requests considerably faster than any server, the performance of a website using this accelerator could increase nearly 300%.
