A web accelerator is a server-side program which accelerates an Internet site. Such a piece of software may work in different ways depending upon the site content, but in the general situation all such programs cache content and deliver it instead of the hosting server. That is valid for both dynamic and static sites since the cached content may be simple text or database responses and the benefit of employing a web accelerator is not just the faster loading site, but also the reduced overall load on the server. This way, you can employ a lower-end hosting plan that'll also cost less while your visitors could still enjoy superior browsing speeds. Few service providers provide web accelerators with their hosting packages and they often offer just one, while we offer 3 different ones that will enable you to boost the performance of any type of website considerably.
Web Accelerators in Cloud Hosting
We offer three of the most well-known web accelerators together with our cloud hosting
solutions and based upon what plan you'll select when you sign up, they may already be available or they may be an optional upgrade. Varnish is the most well-known one of them and it can be employed for any kind of site. It caches the pages the first time a visitor opens them and delivers them at a much faster speed compared to the hosting server each time that a website visitor opens them again. Memcached is used to cache API and database calls, so it can boost the speed of dynamic websites like online stores, forums or social networks. Node.js is used for scalable web programs and it operates in real-time, which makes it suitable for server-side data processing - chats, browser games, booking portals, and so on. You shall be able to choose just how much memory these accelerators will use and how many instances of each and every one will run from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You will be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the Internet sites hosted inside your semi-dedicated hosting
account based on the nature of the website content. Memcached, in particular, caches database requests, so it is a fantastic option for any script program such as WordPress or Joomla™
. That way, the database server won't have to process the exact same request if multiple users open a page with the same content. Varnish is comparable, but it is a general-purpose accelerator since it caches any kind of content the first time a guest opens an Internet site. If that webpage is opened again by the same website visitor, it shall be provided by Varnish at a greater speed compared to the web server. Using this web accelerator shall reduce the load created by your websites substantially. Last, but not least, Node.js will enable you to build scalable web apps 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 info, but processes whatever the client is entering in real-time. The 3 web accelerators are available in 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 can employ.
Web Accelerators in VPS
We provide Memcached, Node.js and Varnish with all virtual private servers
which are obtained with the Hepsia CP. Your server shall also come with a few hundred megabytes of dedicated memory for these accelerators and the exact amount would be determined by the plan that you pick. Memcached is used for script-driven Internet sites as it caches database responses, thus lowering the amount of queries which a script sends to its database. It can be used for any script like WordPress or Joomla™
. Node.js is a powerful platform for creating web applications for example booking sites and chats. The real-time interaction between users and a server is conducted by processing small pieces of data as soon any user inputs anything on the webpage. In comparison, other platforms wait for customers to enter loads of information before they process it, consequently they function more slowly. Varnish is a multi-purpose accelerator which caches entire webpages and provides them instead of the web server at a faster rate. It is also known as an HTTP reverse proxy and it can effortlessly speed up any type of Internet site.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Hosting
In case you get a dedicated server
from us and you opt for Hepsia as the hosting CP, you will be able to employ Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your sites. All solutions come with several gigabytes of memory dedicated to those accelerators and the exact amount depends on the plan that you select. Node.js is used for scalable online applications including browser games or hotel booking and it processes the info in real time as the user enters it, which makes it much faster than very similar platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you employ it for a script-driven Internet site, not simply will the site speed up, but also the load on the hosting server will decrease because there shall be fewer database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it is not limited to databases. Rather, it caches entire websites once a website visitor opens them and provides them instead of the web server each time the same visitor opens them later on. Since Varnish processes web requests much quicker than any web server, the overall performance of an Internet site using this accelerator could increase as much as 300%.
