A web accelerator is a software program that speeds up an Internet site typically by caching content and providing it instead of the hosting server. Such applications may be employed for both static and dynamic Internet sites since there are various accelerators that can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The benefit of using a web accelerator is that a given Internet site will perform considerably faster without using additional system resources. Quite the opposite, such a website will require significantly less resources to work because the web accelerator will tackle most requests instead of the hosting server. In contrast to many businesses which don't offer web accelerators with their solutions or offer only one, we offer three different ones which will permit you to speed up your sites regardless of their kind or content.
Web Accelerators in VPS Servers
In the event that you obtain a VPS server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your Internet sites. All 3 accelerators are incorporated in our packages by default and come with dedicated memory of several hundred megabytes. Node.js is used to create scalable apps where real-time interaction is required - booking sites, online games, chats, etcetera. It processes the information in smaller pieces as the user is entering it, as a result it functions much faster than other platforms that wait for the users to input one massive bit of data. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator which operates as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it in the event that the same guest opens the same website again, which can speed any website several times since Varnish works faster than any web server. Memcached is used for caching API and database responses, therefore it is ideal for script-driven Internet sites such as WordPress and Joomla. This web accelerator will be able to minimize the load on your hosting server because it shall lower the amount of database queries which your websites make.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers
If you buy a dedicated server from us and you opt for Hepsia as the hosting CP, you will be able to use Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your Internet sites. All plans include several gigabytes of memory dedicated to these accelerators and the specific amount depends on the plan that you choose. Node.js is employed for scalable online programs including 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 site speed up, but also the load on the hosting server will reduce because there will be a lesser amount of database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it's not limited to databases. Instead, it caches entire pages once a website visitor opens them and delivers them instead of the server each and every time the same visitor opens them later on. Since Varnish processes web requests considerably faster than any hosting server, the overall performance of an Internet site using this accelerator could increase nearly 300%.
