Varnish, Node.js and Memcached available in Hepsia Control Panel

Varnish, Memcached and Node.js available in Hepsia Control Panel
For the past few weeks, we have been testing Varnish, Node.js and Memecached on our servers and as of last week they are officially available to all new web hosting customers, as well as to all customer on the us.cloudlogin.co and uk.cloudlogin.co servers. These tools can be found in the Advanced section of the Hepsia control panel an index page. For the moment, they will be available as paid upgrades – in order to use them, the customer will have to purchase the needed instances and/or memory for the selected tool from the Upgrades section of the Hepsia control panel. What can Varnish, Node.js and Memecached do for your website? 1. NodeJS – server-side JavaScript environment Node.js is a platform built on Chrome’s JavaScript runtime for easily building fast, scalable network applications. Node.js uses an event-driven, non-blocking I/O model that makes it lightweight and efficient, perfect for data-intensive real-time applications that run across distributed devices. 2. Memcached – a distributed memory object caching system Memcached is a high-performance, distributed memory object caching system, generic in nature, but originally intended for use in speeding up dynamic web applications by alleviating database load. Memcached allows you to take memory from parts of your system where you have more than you need and make it accessible to areas where you have less than you need. Memcached comes with 16 MB, more memory is available as an upgrade. 3. Varnish – a web application accelerator Varnish Cache is a web application accelerator also known as a caching HTTP reverse proxy. You install it in front of any server that speaks HTTP and configure it to cache the contents. Varnish Cache is really, really fast. It typically speeds up delivery with a factor of 300 – 1000x, depending on your architecture. One of the key features of Varnish Cache, in addition to its performance, is the flexibility of its configuration language, VCL. VCL enables you to write policies on how incoming requests should be handled. In such a policy you can decide what content you want to serve, from where you want to get the content and how the request or response should be altered. Varnish comes with 16 MB, more is available as an upgrade. Node.js, Varnish and Memcached are also available for all dedicated servers, without the need for any upgrades. With dedicated servers, Varnish and Memcached  can each use up to 3, 7 or 15 GB of RAM with the Budget, Value and Premier dedicated servers respectively. Soon, these services will also be available for VPS servers. Pricing The prices for instances and memory upgrades for shared hosting plans are as follows: Node.js instance – $3/month, $36/year Memecached instance – $2/month, $24/year 16MB Memcached memory – $1/month, $12/year Varnish instance – $3/month, $36/year 32MB Varnish memory – $2/month, $24/year For the moment, these prices are set at their wholesale level (meaning that if a customer purchases any of the upgrades, the resellers will not receive profit for the sale) and cannot be modified.
