A web accelerator is a server-side application that quickens a website. Such a piece of software may function in different ways based on the website content, but in the typical case all such applications cache content and deliver it instead of the web server. That is valid for both static and dynamic sites because the cached content can be simple text or database responses and the advantage of employing a web accelerator is not just the faster loading website, but also the decreased overall load on the server. That way, you'll be able to use a lower-end hosting plan that'll also cost less while your website visitors will be able to still enjoy fast browsing speeds. Few firms supply web accelerators with their hosting plans and they frequently offer only one, while we offer 3 different ones that will allow you to improve the performance of any kind of site noticeably.
Web Accelerators in Website Hosting
We offer three of the most well-known web accelerators along with our website hosting solutions and based upon what plan you'll choose when you sign up, they could already be available or they may be an optional upgrade. Varnish is the most widely used one of them and it can be used for any type of site. It caches the web pages the first time a visitor opens them and delivers them at a much faster speed compared to the web server each and every time that a visitor opens them again. Memcached is used to cache API and database calls, so it can increase the speed of dynamic sites including online stores, discussion boards or social networks. Node.js is used for scalable web applications and it operates in real-time, which makes it ideal for server-side data processing - chats, browser games, booking portals, etc. You will be able to choose just how much memory these accelerators will employ and how many instances of each one will run from your Hepsia website hosting CP.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers
You shall be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the Internet sites hosted within your semi-dedicated server account depending on the nature of the site content. Memcached, for instance, caches database requests, therefore it's a superb option for any script app like WordPress or Joomla. This way, the database web server won't have to process exactly the same request if a number of users open a site with the same content. Varnish is similar, but it's a general-purpose accelerator as it caches any kind of content the first time a guest opens a site. In case that page is opened again by the very same visitor, it'll be delivered by Varnish at a much better speed compared to the web server. Using this web accelerator can minimize the load generated by your sites significantly. Last, but not least, Node.js will permit you to create scalable web programs such as hotel booking websites or chats. Its advantage over similar platforms is that it doesn't wait for a client to submit a substantial piece of info, but processes whatever the customer is inputting in real-time. The three web accelerators are available in the Hepsia Control Panel and you shall be able to choose how many instances of every one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they'll employ.
Web Accelerators in VPS Servers
We offer Memcached, Node.js and Varnish with all VPS servers that are acquired with the Hepsia CP. Your hosting server will also feature several hundred megabytes of dedicated memory for these accelerators and the specific amount would be determined by the package deal that you select. Memcached is used for script-driven sites since it caches database responses, consequently reducing the number of queries that a script sends to its database. It can be employed for any script like WordPress or Joomla. Node.js is a highly effective platform for creating web applications such as booking websites and chats. The real-time interaction between users and a web server is carried out by processing little parts of info as soon any user inputs anything on the webpage. By comparison, other platforms wait for customers to enter plenty of info before they process it, as a result they operate slowly. Varnish is a multi-purpose accelerator which caches whole web pages and provides them instead of the hosting server at a considerably quicker rate. It is also often called an HTTP reverse proxy and it can effortlessly speed up any sort of Internet site.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers
If you obtain a dedicated server from our firm and you pick Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel, you shall be able to employ Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your Internet sites. All solutions include several gigabytes of memory dedicated to those accelerators and the exact amount depends on the package that you select. Node.js is employed for scalable online apps like browser games or hotel booking and it processes the data immediately as the user enters it, which makes it much faster than similar platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you employ it for a script-driven site, not simply will the Internet site work faster, but also the load on the server will decline since there shall be less database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it's not at all limited to databases. Instead, it caches entire webpages once a visitor opens them and delivers them instead of the web server each and every time the same visitor opens them later on. Because Varnish processes web requests faster than any server, the efficiency of a website using this accelerator could increase around 300%.
