A web accelerator is a server-side application which quickens a website. Such a piece of software could work in different ways based on the site content, but in the general situation all such apps cache content and deliver it instead of the server. That is valid for both static and dynamic sites as the cached content can be simple text or database responses and the benefit of employing a web accelerator is not only the faster loading website, but also the reduced overall load on the server. That way, you'll be able to employ a lower-end hosting plan that will also cost less while your visitors will be able to still enjoy superior browsing speeds. Few firms provide web accelerators with their hosting plans and they typically offer only one, while we offer 3 different ones which will enable you to boost the performance of any sort of site considerably.

Web Accelerators in Shared Hosting

We offer 3 of the most well-known web accelerators along with our shared hosting solutions and depending on what plan you shall choose when you sign up, they might already be available or they could be an optional upgrade. Varnish is the most well-known one of them and it can be used for any kind of website. It caches the pages the first time a visitor opens them and delivers them at a faster speed compared to the hosting server every time that a visitor opens them again. Memcached is employed to cache API and database calls, so it can easily increase the speed of dynamic Internet sites including online stores, forums or social networks. Node.js is used for scalable web applications and it operates in real-time, which makes it suitable for server-side data processing - chats, browser games, booking portals, and many others. You'll be able to select how much memory these accelerators will use and how many instances of each one shall run from your Hepsia website hosting CP.

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 websites. Memcached is among the most popular accelerators because it can effortlessly accelerate any API or database-driven website by caching requests and responses, as a result the server won't have to process identical requests time and time again. The platform is ideal for Internet sites designed with applications like Joomla, Mambo or WordPress. Varnish is an effective accelerator that caches any kind of content and is also known as an HTTP reverse proxy. It caches pages that are opened by a visitor for the first time and delivers them every time that same guest opens them again. Varnish can easily accelerate a site several times since it delivers content quicker than any web server. Node.js is a platform employed for scalable real-time apps like chats, Internet browser games or social networks. It processes information in small pieces as soon as a user types something, so it works considerably faster than similar platforms where users submit big portions of data that require time to be processed. You can select the number of instances and the dedicated memory for every one of the 3 accelerators via your CP.
