A web accelerator is a server-side app that quickens a site. Such a piece of software may operate in different ways depending on the website content, but in the typical case all such programs cache content and deliver it instead of the server. That is valid for both dynamic and static websites because the cached content could be simple text or database responses and the reward of employing a web accelerator is not simply the faster loading website, but also the decreased overall load on the hosting server. This way, you could employ a lower-end hosting solution that'll also cost less while your website visitors could still enjoy fast browsing speeds. Few service providers offer web accelerators with their hosting deals and they typically offer only one, while we offer three different ones that will permit you to improve the performance of any type of Internet site noticeably.
Web Accelerators in Shared Web Hosting
Our shared web hosting solutions come with 3 web accelerators which you could use depending on the sites which you'd like to run. Memcached is used to cache database or API calls and responses, which can considerably boost the functionality of dynamic sites. Varnish is a popular HTTP accelerator which caches pages and delivers them to the visitors much quicker than the web server after the first time they open them. Node.js is an event-driven platform used for scalable real-time apps for example booking websites. With respect to the hosting plan you choose, these 3 programs may already be included or may be optional upgrades. Either way, you'll be able to choose how many instances of each of them will be at your disposal and what amount of memory they ought to use. These accelerators are provided only by several hosting providers, including ours, and they can boost the speed of your web applications considerably.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the websites hosted inside your semi-dedicated server account based on the nature of the site content. Memcached, for example, caches database requests, therefore it's a fantastic option for any script program like WordPress or Joomla. This way, the database web server shall not need to process exactly the same request if many users open a page with the same content. Varnish is very similar, but it's a general-purpose accelerator because it caches any sort of content the first time a visitor opens a site. In case this page is opened again by the same guest, it will be provided by Varnish at a much better speed compared to the web server. Using this web accelerator shall lessen the load produced by your sites considerably. Last, but not least, Node.js will permit you to create scalable web applications like hotel booking Internet sites or chats. Its advantage over very similar platforms is that it does not wait for a customer to submit a large piece of information, but processes whatever the user is inputting in real-time. The 3 web accelerators are available in the Hepsia CP and you will be able to select how many instances of each and every one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they can employ.
Web Accelerators in VPS Servers
In the event that you choose your VPS server to be integrated with the Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to use Varnish, Memcached and Node.js - 3 of the most widely used web accelerators. Varnish caches sites the first time they're visited and provides them each time the same person visits them again, which can speed up any type of website several times. Memcached is employed for dynamic script applications for instance Joomla and WordPress as it caches database requests and responses, thus the database hosting server shall not need to process the exact same page every time visitors open it in the event that the same content should be displayed. Node.js is a platform for building real-time apps such as online games and chats. It functions considerably faster than similar platforms because it processes the info in tiny portions all the time and does not wait for users to submit a substantial piece of data which will need more time to be processed. The 3 web accelerators are offered with all Hepsia-based VPS solutions and feature several hundred MBs of dedicated memory.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers
Memcached, Varnish and Node.js are provided with all dedicated servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and in accordance with the package deal that you pick, you will also have several gbs of dedicated memory for them. Memcached will minimize the web server load by lowering the number of queries that have to be taken care of because it caches database calls and responses. You'll be able to use it on any site that uses an API or a database - for example, any website built with WordPress or Joomla. Varnish can easily boost the performance of any sort of site by caching whole webpages the first time a visitor opens them. The accelerator provides the web pages if the same visitor opens them later on and because it does that considerably quicker than the hosting server, the website visitor will be able to surf your Internet site at least several times faster. This is why Varnish is occasionally referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is an innovative platform that will permit you to build booking websites, web chats and other programs where real-time server-user interaction is necessary. It processes the information in little bits as the client fills different boxes and doesn't wait for all boxes to be filled and processed as one big chunk of data, which makes Node.js way quicker than similar programs.
