A web accelerator is a server-side app that accelerates a site. Such a piece of software may work in different ways depending upon the website content, but in the typical situation all such apps cache content and deliver it instead of the server. That is valid for both static and dynamic websites as the cached content may 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 machine. This way, you may use a lower-end hosting plan which will also cost less while your visitors could still enjoy high browsing speeds. Handful of firms supply web accelerators with their hosting deals and they frequently offer only 1, while we offer three different ones which will allow you to improve the performance of any sort of site significantly.
Web Accelerators in Shared Hosting
We provide three of the most popular web accelerators with our shared hosting
packages and based upon what plan you shall select when you sign up, they might already be available or they could be an optional upgrade. Varnish is the most well-known one of them and it could be used for any type of Internet site. It caches the web pages the first time a website visitor opens them and delivers them at a considerably faster speed compared to the hosting server every time that a visitor opens them again. Memcached is employed to cache API and database calls, so it could increase the speed of dynamic sites such as online stores, forums or social networks. Node.js is employed for scalable web apps and it works in real-time, which makes it perfect for server-side data processing - chats, browser games, booking portals, and so on. You'll be able to select the amount of memory these accelerators shall use and how many instances of each shall run from your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers
You'll be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the sites hosted inside your semi-dedicated server
account based on the nature of the site content. Memcached, for instance, caches database requests, so it is a superb choice for any script program such as WordPress or Joomla™
. That way, the database hosting server will not need to process the exact same request if many users open a website with the same content. Varnish is comparable, but it is a general-purpose accelerator as it caches any kind of content the first time a visitor opens an Internet site. If that page is opened again by the very same visitor, it will be provided by Varnish at a greater speed compared to the server. Using this web accelerator can reduce the load generated by your sites drastically. Last, but not least, Node.js will enable you to build scalable web apps like hotel booking sites or chats. Its advantage over similar platforms is that it does not wait for a customer to submit a substantial piece of information, but processes whatever the customer is inputting in real-time. The three web accelerators are available inside the Hepsia CP and you'll be able to pick how many instances of every one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they may use.
Web Accelerators in VPS Servers
We offer Memcached, Node.js and Varnish with all VPS servers
that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. Your server shall also come with several hundred MBs of dedicated memory for these accelerators and the exact amount depends on the package deal that you pick. Memcached is used for script-driven websites since it caches database responses, consequently decreasing the amount of queries that a script sends to its database. It could be employed for any script including WordPress or Joomla™
. Node.js is an efficient platform for building web applications like booking sites and chats. The real-time interaction between users and a web server is performed by processing little bits of info as soon any user inputs anything on the website. In contrast, other platforms await customers to enter plenty of information before they process it, thus they operate slower. Varnish is a multi-purpose accelerator which caches entire webpages and provides them instead of the hosting server at a considerably quicker rate. It is also known as an HTTP reverse proxy and it can effortlessly speed up any type of website.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers
Memcached, Node.js and Varnish are offered by default with all of our dedicated servers
that are ordered with Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel. These 3 web accelerators come with several gigabytes of dedicated memory and you could use them to speed up any sort of Internet site. Memcached can significantly decrease the load on the hosting server if you have script-driven Internet sites because it caches database responses, so it decreases the number of database queries which the web server has to deal with. Node.js will enable you to develop scalable applications with real-time user-server interaction such as chats or dining booking sites. Its advantage over similar platforms is that it processes information the instant the user enters it, so all the data is handled quicker and in small pieces. Varnish caches entire pages the first time a website visitor opens them and delivers them every time the same website visitor opens them again, which makes it a universal accelerator for any type of Internet sites. Since it functions quicker than any hosting server, it can speed up a website at least several times and because of this, Varnish is amongst the most widely used web accelerators out there.
