A web accelerator is a server-side app that quickens an Internet site. Such a piece of software may function in different ways depending upon the website content, but in the general case all such apps cache content and deliver it instead of the hosting server. That's valid for both dynamic and static websites because the cached content could be simple text or database responses and the benefit of employing a web accelerator is not only the faster loading Internet site, but also the minimized overall load on the hosting server. That way, you could employ a lower-end hosting plan that will also cost less while your visitors will be able to still enjoy superior browsing speeds. Few firms provide web accelerators with their hosting packages and they often offer only one, while we offer three different ones which will permit you to enhance the performance of any kind of Internet site considerably.
Web Accelerators in Hosting
In case you host your websites inside a hosting
account from our firm, you'll have 3 popular web accelerators to select from if you'd like to boost the sites' functionality. Memcached is employed for database-driven websites and it caches the calls and requests between a site and its database, so it could minimize the load of such websites tremendously. Varnish caches whole pages the first time a site visitor opens them and delivers them from there on if the same website visitor opens them again. It does that much faster than the server, so it can easily raise the loading speed of any Internet site as much as 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time programs that operates on the hosting server and not in the visitor's browser. It is used for holiday accommodation booking, chats and other programs where plenty of data needs to be processed in real time. The availability of the accelerators depends upon the hosting package that you pick - they could come by default or as an upgrade. In both cases, you shall be able to add more instances or more memory for each of them.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You shall be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the websites hosted within your semi-dedicated hosting
account based on the nature of the site content. Memcached, for instance, caches database requests, therefore it is an excellent option for any script application like WordPress or Joomla™
. This way, the database web server will not need to process the same request if many users open a webpage 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 an Internet site. In case this page is opened again by the exact same guest, it shall be provided by Varnish at a much better speed compared to the web server. Employing this web accelerator shall lessen the load created by your sites considerably. Last, but not least, Node.js shall enable you to create scalable web applications like hotel booking websites 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 entering in real-time. The three web accelerators are available inside the Hepsia Control Panel 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 employ.
Web Accelerators in VPS
In case you get a virtual private server
with the Hepsia Control Panel, you shall be able to employ Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your websites. All 3 accelerators are incorporated inside our packages by default and offer dedicated memory of a few hundred megabytes. Node.js is used to create scalable applications where real-time interaction is necessary - booking Internet sites, online games, chats, and so forth. It processes the info in small pieces as the end user is entering it, thus it functions faster than other platforms that wait for the end users to submit one sizeable part of data. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator which functions as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it in the event that the same website visitor opens the same webpage again, which can easily speed any site several times as Varnish functions a lot quicker than any web server. Memcached is used for caching API and database responses, so it is appropriate for script-driven sites like WordPress and Joomla™
. This web accelerator can minimize the load on your hosting server since it shall lower the amount of database queries your Internet sites make.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Hosting
In the event that you buy a dedicated server
from us and you pick Hepsia as the hosting CP, you will be able to employ Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your Internet sites. All plans feature several gigabytes of memory dedicated to these accelerators and the exact amount depends on the package deal that you select. Node.js is employed for scalable online applications such as browser games or hotel booking and it processes the data in real time as the user enters it, which makes it considerably quicker than comparable platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you use it for a script-driven website, not simply will the Internet site work faster, but also the load on the server will decline since there shall be fewer database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it isn't limited to databases. Instead, it caches entire websites once a visitor opens them and delivers them instead of the hosting server each time the same visitor opens them later on. Since Varnish processes web requests considerably faster than any web server, the efficiency of a website using this accelerator could increase around 300%.
