A web accelerator is a software application which accelerates a website usually by caching content and providing it instead of the web server. Such applications may be used for both dynamic and static Internet sites since there are different 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 will perform noticeably faster without employing more resources. Just the opposite, this type of a site will need a lesser amount of resources to operate because the web accelerator will deal with most requests rather than the server. Contrary to many businesses which do not offer web accelerators with their packages or offer just one, we offer three different ones that'll allow you to speed up your Internet sites irrespective of their kind or content.

Web Accelerators in Cloud Hosting

Our cloud hosting packages come with 3 web accelerators which you could use depending on the websites that you would like to run. Memcached is used to cache database or API calls and responses, which could significantly boost the efficiency of dynamic Internet sites. Varnish is a popular HTTP accelerator that caches web pages and delivers them to the website visitors way quicker than the hosting server after the first time they open them. Node.js is an event-driven platform used for scalable real-time programs such as booking websites. Depending upon the web hosting solution you select, these three programs might already be included or may be optional upgrades. In any case, you shall be able to pick how many instances of each of them will be at your disposal and how much memory they ought to employ. These accelerators are provided only by several Internet hosting providers, including ours, and they can easily increase the speed of your web apps drastically.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

You'll be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the sites hosted in your semi-dedicated server account based on the nature of the site content. Memcached, in particular, caches database requests, therefore it's an excellent option for any script application such as WordPress or Joomla. This way, the database hosting server will not have to process the same request if multiple users open a website with the same content. Varnish is comparable, but it's a general-purpose accelerator as it caches any kind of content the first time a visitor opens a page. In case this web page is opened again by the same guest, it shall be delivered by Varnish at a greater speed compared to the hosting server. Using this web accelerator will minimize the load produced by your websites tremendously. Last, but not least, Node.js will enable you to build scalable web apps like hotel booking sites or chats. Its advantage over similar platforms is that it does not wait for a client to submit a large piece of data, but processes whatever the client is entering in real-time. The 3 web accelerators are available in the Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to select how many instances of every one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they'll use.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

Memcached, Node.js and Varnish are available by default with all our dedicated servers that are ordered with Hepsia as the Internet hosting Control Panel. These 3 web accelerators feature several gigabytes of dedicated memory and you can use them to speed up any sort of Internet site. Memcached can substantially reduce the load on the server if you have script-driven Internet sites since it caches database responses, thus it decreases the number of database queries the web server has to handle. Node.js will enable you to develop scalable programs with real-time user-server interaction like chats or dining booking websites. Its advantage over comparable platforms is that it processes data the instant the user enters it, so all the information is taken care of swifter and in small pieces. Varnish caches whole webpages the first time a website visitor opens them and delivers them each time the same visitor opens them again, that makes it a universal accelerator for any type of sites. Since it works faster than any server, it can speed up a site at least several times and because of this, Varnish is among the most popular web accelerators available on the market.
