A web accelerator is a software application that accelerates an Internet site typically by caching content and providing it instead of the hosting server. Such apps can be used for both dynamic and static Internet sites because there are different accelerators which can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The main advantage of employing a web accelerator is that a given website shall perform noticeably faster without using additional system resources. Quite the opposite, this type of a website will demand a lesser amount of resources to function because the web accelerator will take care of most requests instead of the server. Unlike many firms that don't offer web accelerators with their solutions or offer only 1, we offer three different ones that'll enable you to speed up your websites whatever their type or content.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

You'll be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the Internet sites hosted within your semi-dedicated server account based on the nature of the site content. Memcached, for instance, caches database requests, so it is a great choice for any script program like WordPress or Joomla. This way, the database server shall not need to process exactly the same request if multiple users open a website with the same content. Varnish is comparable, but it is a general-purpose accelerator as it caches any kind of content the first time a visitor opens an Internet site. If that webpage is opened again by the very same website visitor, it shall be provided by Varnish at a much better speed compared to the server. Employing this web accelerator will minimize the load generated by your sites tremendously. Last, but not least, Node.js will allow you to produce scalable web applications like hotel booking websites or chats. Its advantage over comparable platforms is that it doesn't wait for a user to submit a sizable piece of data, but processes whatever the customer is typing in real-time. The 3 web accelerators are available inside the Hepsia CP and you'll be able to pick how many instances of each and every one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they'll use.

Web Accelerators in VPS Servers

We offer Memcached, Node.js and Varnish with all VPS servers that are purchased with the Hepsia CP. Your web server will also include several hundred megabytes of dedicated memory for these accelerators and the particular amount would be determined by the package that you pick. Memcached is employed for script-driven sites because it caches database responses, consequently reducing the number of queries that a script sends to its database. It can be used for any script like WordPress or Joomla. Node.js is a powerful platform for creating web apps including booking sites and chats. The real-time interaction between users and a web server is conducted by processing little pieces of info as soon any user enters anything on the site. In contrast, other platforms await customers to input a lot of info before they process it, thus they work more slowly. Varnish is a multi-purpose accelerator which caches whole pages and delivers them instead of the hosting server at a considerably faster rate. It is also often called an HTTP reverse proxy and it can easily speed up any kind of Internet site.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

Memcached, Node.js and Varnish are offered by default with all of our dedicated servers which are ordered with Hepsia as the hosting CP. These 3 web accelerators feature several gigabytes of dedicated memory and you may employ them to speed up any sort of Internet site. Memcached can greatly decrease the load on the server if you have script-driven websites since it caches database responses, therefore it decreases the amount of database queries the web server has to deal with. Node.js will allow you to create scalable applications with real-time user-server interaction like chats or dining booking websites. Its advantage over similar platforms is that it processes information as soon as the user enters it, so all the info is taken care of swifter and in small bits. Varnish caches entire Internet pages the first time a visitor opens them and provides them each time the same visitor opens them again, which makes it a universal accelerator for any type of sites. Because it works quicker than any server, it can easily speed up a site at least several times and for that reason, Varnish is one of the most widely used web accelerators around.
