Find out what exactly web accelerators are and just how you'll be able to make the most of them to supercharge your website’s performance.
A web accelerator is a program which accelerates a site, normally by caching its content. There are different kinds of accelerators, but in the common case such applications cache static content or database responses and supply them in place of the web server, thus improving the performance of a site considerably. The latter can be done because accelerator applications work faster than a web server and not simply will an Internet site work better, but the server load shall also minimize, which will enable you to run heavy sites with less system resources. We provide 3 web accelerators with our hosting solutions, which will allow you to increase the speed of any sort of site. In comparison, most Internet hosting companies don't provide any web accelerators or offer just one, which limits your choice of web apps if you want to employ this kind of software.
Web Accelerators in Cloud Hosting
If you buy one of our cloud hosting plans, you shall have 3 well-known web accelerators at your disposal and you will be able to access them directly via the Hepsia Control Panel that is included with our packages. Varnish is one of the most widely used ones and it can considerably accelerate any site since it caches the web pages a site visitor opens for the first time and delivers them each time that website visitor opens them again. Because Varnish functions faster than any server, the loading speed of any website using the accelerator will grow substantially. Memcached is used to cache database and API calls and responses between a site visitor and a web server, so it's similar to Varnish, but is used mainly for database-driven websites. Considering that the website shall connect to its database much less, the overall hosting server load will be minimized notably. The 3rd accelerator, Node.js, is employed for scalable online applications such as chats and booking Internet sites because it processes info in real time as soon as it is entered on the webpage by the users. Dependant upon the plan you pick, these accelerators may be available or might be an optional upgrade.
- Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated HostingOur semi-dedicated hosting solutions will permit you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js - three of the most powerful web accelerators available on the market. Memcached is used to cache database and API calls and responses, therefore it can accelerate any script-driven Internet site. You could use it for any website built with WordPress or Joomla™, for example. Varnish is also known as an HTTP reverse proxy and it is a general-purpose caching platform which may be used for any sort of Internet sites. With regards to the content, it can increase the performance of a site approximately 300%. Node.js is an innovative system employed to create scalable Internet apps that process info in real time for instance booking portals. Its advantage is that unlike similar platforms, it processes info continuously and in small bits rather than waiting for the user to submit one sizeable piece of data. The accelerators may be enabled for any site via the Hepsia CP and you shall be able to pick how many instances of every one of them shall work and how much memory they shall use.
- Web Accelerators in VPS HostingWe provide Memcached, Node.js and Varnish with all virtual private servers which are ordered with the Hepsia CP. Your web server shall also come with several hundred megabytes of dedicated memory for these accelerators and the specific amount depends on the package deal that you pick. Memcached is employed for script-driven sites as it caches database responses, thus lowering the number of queries a script sends to its database. It could be employed for any script such as WordPress or Joomla™. Node.js is an effective platform for building web applications like booking Internet sites and chats. The real-time interaction between end users and a hosting server is conducted by processing small pieces of information as soon any user inputs anything on the site. In comparison, other platforms wait for users to input loads of information before they process it, consequently they function slowly. Varnish is a multi-purpose accelerator which caches entire pages and delivers them instead of the server at a faster rate. It is also known as an HTTP reverse proxy and it can effortlessly speed up any type of site.
- Web Accelerators in Dedicated Web HostingIf you acquire a dedicated server from our firm 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 packages come with several gigabytes of memory dedicated to these accelerators and the actual amount depends on the package that you select. Node.js is used for scalable online applications including browser games or hotel booking and it processes the information instantly as the client enters it, which makes it considerably faster than similar platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you use it for a script-driven Internet site, not simply will the Internet site speed up, but also the load on the server will reduce as there shall be fewer database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it isn't limited to databases. Rather, it caches entire web pages once a visitor opens them and provides them instead of the web server each and every time the same visitor opens them later on. Due to the fact that Varnish processes web requests faster than any web server, the efficiency of an Internet site using this accelerator could increase as much as 300%.
