A web accelerator is a server-side app that speeds up a website. Such a piece of software could function in different ways depending on the site content, but in the general case all such programs 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 decreased overall load on the machine. That way, you may employ a lower-end hosting plan that will also cost less while your visitors will be able to still enjoy superior browsing speeds. Handful of businesses offer web accelerators with their hosting deals and they typically offer just 1, while we offer three different ones that will permit you to enhance the performance of any type of website noticeably.
Web Accelerators in Shared Hosting
If you host your websites in a shared hosting
account from our company, you shall have three popular web accelerators to choose from if you would like to improve the sites' efficiency. Memcached is used for database-driven websites and it caches the calls and requests between an Internet site and its database, so it can minimize the load of such websites considerably. Varnish caches whole web pages the first time a website visitor opens them and delivers them from there on if the same guest opens them again. It does that faster than the hosting server, so it could boost the loading speed of any site approximately 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time applications which operates on the web server and not inside the visitor's world-wide web browser. It is employed for accommodation booking, chats and other apps where a lot of data should be processed in real time. The availability of the accelerators depends on the hosting solution which you pick - they might come by default or as an upgrade. In each case, you will be able to include more instances or more memory for each one of them.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel that is included with our semi-dedicated hosting
packages shall enable you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your websites. Memcached is among the most famous accelerators because it can easily increase the speed of any API or database-driven Internet site by caching requests and responses, thus the hosting server will not have to process identical requests over and over again. The platform is perfect for websites developed with applications such as Joomla™
, Mambo or WordPress. Varnish is an effective accelerator which caches any kind of content and is also often called an HTTP reverse proxy. It caches web pages that are opened by a site visitor for the first time and provides them every time that same visitor opens them again. Varnish can certainly accelerate an Internet site several times because it delivers content faster than any web server. Node.js is a platform used for scalable real-time programs such as chats, browser games or social networks. It processes information in smaller pieces as soon as a user types anything, therefore it operates much more quickly than similar platforms in which users submit sizeable chunks of information that need time to be processed. You can choose the number of instances and the dedicated memory for each and every one of the 3 accelerators via your CP.
Web Accelerators in VPS
All virtual private servers
which are integrated with the Hepsia Control Panel come with Varnish, Memcached and Node.js already included and you'll get several hundred MBs of dedicated memory for them by default. Varnish, which is also referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy, caches web pages the first time a site visitor opens them and provides them when that guest opens them again, hence the hosting server shall not need to perform any action. Since Varnish operates much faster than any hosting server, an Internet site using this accelerator shall operate several times swifter. Memcached is a platform which caches database calls and responses and it's used for WordPress, Joomla™
and other script-driven apps which store their content inside a database. Node.js is a powerful platform for creating scalable web programs. Any info on a website which employs Node.js is processed right away, making it a superb choice for dining and accommodation booking sites, web-based chats, web browser games, etcetera.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Hosting
If you pick Hepsia as the hosting CP for your new dedicated server, you will have Memcached, Varnish and Node.js readily available for speeding up your sites. Memcached can easily minimize the load on the web server by lowering the queries your script-driven sites make since it caches database responses. This web accelerator is great for dynamic sites developed with WordPress, Joomla™
and very similar scripts. Varnish, which is often called an HTTP reverse proxy, caches whole sites the first time a new website visitor opens them. It may be used to speed up any type of site as it delivers the cached content considerably faster than the server every time a visitor opens the same page again. You'll be able to employ Node.js for online applications that call for real-time server-client interaction like online chats or booking sites. Different from other platforms that wait for the user to input everything on a form, Node.js processes the information bit by bit as the user fills each and every box, so it works considerably quicker and more effectively. All dedicated server
solutions come with several gigabytes of memory dedicated to these three web accelerators.
