A web accelerator is a software that accelerates a website, usually by caching its content. There are various types of accelerators, but in the typical case this kind of programs cache static content or database responses and supply them in place of the hosting server, as a consequence boosting the performance of a site drastically. The latter is achievable because accelerator applications work faster than a web server and not only will a site operate better, but the server load will also minimize, which will permit you to run heavy websites with less resources. We offer three web accelerators with our hosting plans, which will enable you to speed up any type of site. In comparison, most Internet hosting businesses do not offer any web accelerators or offer one, which limits your choice of web apps in case you'd like to use such software.

Web Accelerators in Website Hosting

We provide 3 of the most well-known web accelerators with our website hosting packages and based on what plan you will select when you sign up, they might already be available or they could be an optional upgrade. Varnish is the most popular one of them and it may be employed for any type of site. It caches the pages the first time a site visitor opens them and delivers them at a much faster speed compared to the web server every time that a visitor opens them again. Memcached is employed to cache API and database calls, so it could boost the speed of dynamic Internet sites including online stores, community forums or social networks. Node.js is employed for scalable web programs and it works in real-time, which makes it suitable for server-side data processing - chats, browser games, booking portals, and many others. You will be able to choose how much memory these accelerators shall use and how many instances of each one shall run from your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel.

Web Accelerators in VPS Hosting

We offer Memcached, Node.js and Varnish with all virtual private servers which are purchased with the Hepsia CP. Your server shall also feature several hundred MBs of dedicated memory for these accelerators and the actual amount would depend on the plan that you select. Memcached is employed for script-driven Internet sites because it caches database responses, consequently lowering the amount of queries which a script sends to its database. It can be employed for any script including WordPress or Joomla. Node.js is a powerful platform for developing web applications including booking Internet sites and chats. The real-time interaction between users and a hosting server is carried out by processing small parts of information as soon any user inputs anything on the website. In comparison, other platforms await users to input a considerable amount of info before they process it, consequently they function slower. Varnish is a multi-purpose accelerator that caches whole web pages and provides them instead of the web server at a considerably faster rate. It's also known as an HTTP reverse proxy and it can speed up any kind of site.
