A web accelerator is a software which quickens a website, normally by caching its content. There are various sorts of accelerators, but in the common case this sort of apps cache static content or database responses and supply them instead of the web server, as a consequence improving the performance of an Internet site significantly. The latter is achievable because accelerator applications work faster than a hosting server and not only will an Internet site operate better, but the server load will also minimize, which will allow you to run heavy sites with less resources. We offer 3 web accelerators with our hosting plans, which will allow you to increase the speed of any type of website. In comparison, most website hosting providers do not offer any web accelerators or provide just one, which limits your choice of web applications in the event that you would like to employ such software.
Web Accelerators in Shared Hosting
Our shared hosting
plans feature 3 web accelerators that you can employ depending on the websites which you would like to run. Memcached is employed to cache database or API calls and responses, which can tremendously improve the performance of dynamic Internet sites. Varnish is a popular HTTP accelerator which caches web pages and provides them to the website visitors considerably quicker than the web server after the first time they open them. Node.js is an event-driven platform employed for scalable real-time apps such as booking websites. Based on the hosting plan you pick, these three programs might already be included or might be optional upgrades. In any case, you will be able to select how many instances of every one of them shall be at your disposal and how much memory they should use. These accelerators are offered only by a handful of hosting service providers, including ours, and they can increase the speed of your web apps drastically.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers
You shall be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the Internet sites hosted in your semi-dedicated server
account based on the nature of the site content. Memcached, for instance, caches database requests, therefore it's a great option for any script program like WordPress or Joomla™
. That way, the database web server will not have to process the very same request if many users open a website with the same content. Varnish is comparable, but it's a general-purpose accelerator because it caches any type of content the first time a website visitor opens an Internet site. If this page is opened again by the exact same website visitor, it'll be provided by Varnish at a much better speed compared to the hosting server. Employing this web accelerator will reduce the load created by your Internet sites significantly. Last, but not least, Node.js shall enable you to build scalable web programs like hotel booking Internet sites or chats. Its advantage over very similar platforms is that it does not wait for a client to submit a sizable piece of info, but processes whatever the user is inputting in real-time. The 3 web accelerators are available inside the Hepsia Control Panel 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 may use.
Web Accelerators in VPS Servers
In the event that you obtain a VPS server
with the Hepsia CP, you will be able to employ Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your websites. All 3 accelerators are integrated inside our packages by default and offer dedicated memory of several hundred MBs. Node.js is employed to create scalable programs where real-time interaction is required - booking Internet sites, online games, chats, etc. It processes the data in smaller portions as the end user is entering it, as a result it operates quicker than other platforms that wait for the end users to submit one big piece of info. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator that operates as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it if the same visitor opens the same webpage again, which can easily speed any Internet site several times because Varnish works a lot quicker than any web server. Memcached is employed for caching API and database responses, consequently it is suitable for script-driven Internet sites like WordPress and Joomla™
. This web accelerator can easily decrease the load on your web server since it shall reduce the amount of database queries that your websites make.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers
If you select Hepsia as the hosting CP for your new dedicated server, you'll have Memcached, Varnish and Node.js at your disposal for accelerating your sites. Memcached can minimize the load on the web server by lowering the queries your script-driven Internet sites make because it caches database responses. This web accelerator is great for dynamic sites designed with WordPress, Joomla™
and similar scripts. Varnish, which is referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy, caches entire webpages the first time a new visitor opens them. It could be employed to accelerate any type of website as it delivers the cached content way quicker than the server each time a guest opens the same site again. You can employ Node.js for online programs that require real-time server-client interaction such as online chats or booking websites. Different from other platforms that await the user to fill everything on a form, Node.js processes the data bit by bit as the user fills each box, so it functions considerably quicker and more efficiently. All dedicated server
plans include several gigabytes of memory dedicated to these 3 web accelerators.
