A web accelerator is a server-side app that accelerates a website. Such a piece of software may function in different ways depending on the website content, but in the general case all such programs cache content and deliver it instead of the hosting server. That is valid for both dynamic and static websites as the cached content can be simple text or database responses and the advantage of using a web accelerator is not simply the faster loading site, but also the minimized overall load on the server. This way, you may use a lower-end hosting package that will also cost less while your site visitors can still enjoy fast browsing speeds. Several firms supply web accelerators with their hosting deals and they typically offer only 1, while we offer 3 different ones that will allow you to enhance the performance of any kind of site substantially.
Web Accelerators in Cloud Web Hosting
We provide three of the most well-known web accelerators along with our cloud web hosting
packages and based on what plan you will select when you sign up, they might already be available or they may be an optional upgrade. Varnish is the most widely used one of them and it may be used for any sort of Internet site. It caches the pages the first time a visitor opens them and provides them at a faster speed compared to the server each time that a visitor opens them again. Memcached is used to cache API and database calls, so it can easily boost the speed of dynamic sites like online stores, discussion boards or social networks. Node.js is employed for scalable web applications and it functions in real-time, which makes it perfect for server-side data processing - chats, browser games, booking portals, etc. You will be able to select what amount of memory these accelerators shall employ and how many instances of each one shall run from your Hepsia website hosting CP.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you opt for one of our semi-dedicated hosting
packages, you shall be able to employ Varnish, Memcached and Node.js - 3 effective web accelerators. Varnish is a multi-purpose app which caches pages the first time a website visitor opens them and provides them instead of the web server if the visitor opens them again close to 300% more quickly. Memcached caches API and database calls and responses so that the web server does not need to process every request, which makes it suitable for database-driven sites, for example ones built with Joomla™
or WordPress. Node.js is employed to build web programs that function in real-time including chats or accommodation booking portals and it processes each and every bit of info as soon as the user enters it as opposed to waiting for large chunks of information to be accumulated. The Hepsia CP that comes with our semi-dedicated solutions shall allow you to pick how many instances of every accelerator shall work at a time and the amount of memory they will use.
Web Accelerators in VPS Web Hosting
All virtual private servers
which are integrated with the Hepsia Control Panel come with Varnish, Memcached and Node.js already included and you will get several hundred megabytes of dedicated memory for them by default. Varnish, which is also referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy, caches pages the first time a website visitor opens them and delivers them in case that visitor opens them again, therefore the hosting server won't need to perform any action. As Varnish operates faster than any web server, a site employing this accelerator will function several times faster. Memcached is a platform which caches database calls and responses and it's employed for WordPress, Joomla™
and other script-driven apps which store their content inside a database. Node.js is an effective platform for building scalable web apps. Any info on a site which uses Node.js is processed instantly, which makes it an excellent choice for dining and accommodation booking Internet sites, web-based chats, web browser games, and so on.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers Hosting
Memcached, Varnish and Node.js come with all dedicated servers
ordered with the Hepsia hosting CP and based on the package you pick, you will also have several gbs of dedicated memory for them. Memcached shall reduce the web server load by lowering the amount of queries that have to be addressed since it caches database calls and responses. You will be able to use it on any website which uses an API or a database - for example, any website designed with WordPress or Joomla™
. Varnish could enhance the performance of any type of website by caching whole webpages the first time a visitor opens them. The accelerator provides the webpages if the same visitor opens them later and given that it does that considerably faster than the hosting server, the visitor shall be able to browse your Internet site at least a few times faster. For this reason Varnish is sometimes categorised as an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is an advanced platform that'll enable you to develop booking sites, web chats and other apps where real-time server-user interaction is required. It processes the data in little bits as the client fills different boxes and doesn't wait for all boxes to be filled and processed as one massive chunk of information, which makes Node.js considerably faster than similar applications.
