A web accelerator is a software application which speeds up a site usually by caching content and supplying it instead of the hosting server. Such apps could be used for both dynamic and static Internet sites since there are various accelerators which can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The best thing about employing a web accelerator is that a given site shall perform substantially faster without using extra system resources. Just the opposite, this type of a website will demand significantly less resources to operate as the web accelerator will handle most requests instead of the web server. Contrary to many firms that don't offer web accelerators with their packages or offer only 1, we offer three different ones that will enable you to speed up your Internet sites irrespective of their kind or content.

Web Accelerators in Hosting

We offer three of the most popular web accelerators together with our hosting solutions and depending on what plan you'll pick when you sign up, they may already be available or they could be an optional upgrade. Varnish is the most widely used one of them and it can be used for any sort of site. It caches the web pages the first time a website visitor opens them and provides them at a much faster speed compared to the server each and every time that a website visitor opens them again. Memcached is employed to cache API and database calls, so it could increase the speed of dynamic Internet sites like online stores, community forums or social networks. Node.js is used for scalable web applications and it operates in real-time, which makes it excellent for server-side data processing - chats, browser games, booking portals, etcetera. You shall be able to choose the amount of memory these accelerators will employ and how many instances of each will run from your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

If you order a dedicated server from us and you select Hepsia as the hosting CP, you'll be able to use Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your Internet sites. All packages include several gigabytes of memory dedicated to those accelerators and the actual amount depends on the package deal that you choose. Node.js is used for scalable online apps such as browser games or hotel booking and it processes the information right away as the user enters it, which makes it considerably quicker than similar platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you use it for a script-driven Internet site, not simply will the Internet site work faster, but also the load on the web server will minimize as there will be less database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it is not limited to databases. Instead, it caches whole websites once a guest opens them and delivers them instead of the hosting server each and every time the same visitor opens them later. Since Varnish processes web requests much faster than any server, the efficiency of an Internet site using this accelerator could increase up to 300%.
