A web accelerator is a software which speeds up a website, normally by caching its content. There are various types of accelerators, but in the typical case such apps cache static content or database responses and provide them instead of the server, as a consequence improving the performance of a website drastically. The latter is possible because accelerator applications work faster than a server and not simply will a website function better, but the server load shall also decline, which will enable you to run heavy sites with less system resources. We offer three web accelerators with our hosting packages, which will enable you to speed up any kind of site. In comparison, most hosting firms do not offer any web accelerators or offer just one, which limits your choice of web apps if you'd like to employ such software.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

The Hepsia Control Panel which is provided with our semi-dedicated server plans will enable you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your websites. Memcached is one of the most popular accelerators as it can speed up any API or database-driven site by caching requests and responses, thus the server won't have to process identical requests time after time. The platform is suitable for Internet sites built with applications like Joomla, Mambo or WordPress. Varnish is a highly effective accelerator which caches any type of content and is also known as an HTTP reverse proxy. It caches pages that are opened by a site visitor for the first time and delivers them each time that same site visitor opens them again. Varnish can speed up an Internet site several times since it delivers content quicker than any hosting server. Node.js is a platform used for scalable real-time applications like chats, Internet browser games or social networks. It processes info in small pieces the instant a user enters something, as a result it operates much more quickly than similar platforms in which users submit large chunks of data that need time to be processed. You can pick the number of instances and the dedicated memory for each of the three accelerators through your CP.
