A web accelerator is a software which speeds up a website, typically by caching its content. There are different sorts of accelerators, but in the common case this sort of programs cache static content or database responses and provide them in place of the server, hence increasing the performance of a site greatly. The latter can be done because accelerator applications work faster than a server and not simply will a site work better, but the server load shall also lessen, which will permit you to run heavy sites with less resources. We offer 3 web accelerators with our hosting plans, which will permit you to speed up any kind of Internet site. In comparison, most Internet hosting firms don't offer any web accelerators or provide only 1, which limits your choice of web apps if you want to use such software.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the sites hosted in your semi-dedicated server account in accordance with the nature of the site content. Memcached, in particular, caches database requests, so it is a superb option for any script application such as WordPress or Joomla. This way, the database hosting server won't have to process the very same request if a number of users open a site with the same content. Varnish is comparable, but it's a general-purpose accelerator since it caches any sort of content the first time a visitor opens an Internet site. If this webpage is opened again by the very same website visitor, it'll be provided by Varnish at a greater speed compared to the hosting server. Using this web accelerator can lessen the load produced by your Internet sites significantly. Last, but not least, Node.js will permit you to produce scalable web apps such as hotel booking websites or chats. Its advantage over similar platforms is that it doesn't wait for a user to submit a sizable piece of info, but processes whatever the customer is inputting in real-time. The 3 web accelerators are available inside the Hepsia CP and you shall be able to pick how many instances of each one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they can use.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

If you get a dedicated server from our firm and you select Hepsia as the hosting CP, you'll be able to employ Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your Internet sites. All plans include several gigabytes of memory dedicated to those accelerators and the exact amount depends on the plan that you choose. Node.js is employed for scalable online apps including browser games or hotel booking and it processes the data in real time as the client enters it, which makes it much quicker than comparable platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you use it for a script-driven Internet site, not only will the Internet site work faster, but also the load on the web server will minimize because there will be fewer database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it's not at all limited to databases. Rather, it caches entire websites once a visitor opens them and delivers them instead of the hosting server each and every time the same visitor opens them afterwards. Since Varnish processes web requests considerably faster than any server, the performance of a website using this accelerator can increase around 300%.
