Learn what exactly web accelerators are and exactly how it is possible to take full advantage of them to boost your web site’s efficiency.
A web accelerator is a software that accelerates an Internet site, usually by caching its content. There are many sorts of accelerators, but in the common case this kind of applications cache static content or database responses and supply them instead of the hosting server, hence boosting the performance of a website significantly. The latter is possible because accelerator programs work faster than a hosting server and not only will a website work better, but the server load will also lessen, which will enable you to run heavy Internet sites with less resources. We provide three web accelerators with our hosting solutions, which will enable you to accelerate any type of site. In comparison, most web hosting companies do not offer any web accelerators or provide one, which limits your choice of web applications in case you want to use this type of software.
Web Accelerators in Website Hosting
We offer three of the most popular web accelerators along with our website hosting
solutions and based upon what plan you'll pick 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 used for any kind of Internet site. It caches the pages the first time a visitor opens them and delivers them at a considerably faster speed compared to the web server each time that a website visitor opens them again. Memcached is used to cache API and database calls, so it could increase the speed of dynamic websites such as online stores, community forums or social networks. Node.js is employed for scalable web applications and it operates in real-time, which makes it perfect for server-side data processing - chats, browser games, booking portals, and many others. You shall be able to choose what amount of memory these accelerators shall use and how many instances of each shall run from your Hepsia website hosting CP.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you select one of our semi-dedicated server
solutions, you shall be able to work with Varnish, Memcached and Node.js - 3 powerful web accelerators. Varnish is a multi-purpose program that caches pages the first time a website visitor opens them and provides them instead of the hosting server if the website visitor opens them again close to 300% quicker. Memcached caches API and database calls and responses so the web server does not have to process each request, that makes it suitable for database-driven sites, for example ones developed with Joomla™
or WordPress. Node.js is employed to produce web apps that function in real-time like chats or accommodation booking portals and it processes each bit of data the instant the user enters it instead of waiting for large chunks of info to be accumulated. The Hepsia CP which comes with our semi-dedicated packages shall enable you to pick how many instances of every accelerator shall work at a time and how much memory they will use.
Web Accelerators in VPS Servers
We offer Memcached, Node.js and Varnish with all VPS servers
that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. Your hosting server shall also feature a few hundred megabytes of dedicated memory for these accelerators and the actual amount depends on the plan that you select. Memcached is employed for script-driven Internet sites since it caches database responses, consequently reducing the number of queries which a script sends to its database. It could be employed for any script such as WordPress or Joomla™
. Node.js is an effective platform for building web apps like booking Internet sites and chats. The real-time interaction between end users and a hosting server is conducted by processing small pieces of info as soon any user enters anything on the website. In contrast, other platforms wait for users to input a whole lot of info before they process it, consequently they function more slowly. Varnish is a multi-purpose accelerator which caches whole pages and provides them instead of the server at a considerably faster rate. It is also referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy and it can speed up any sort of website.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers
Memcached, Node.js and Varnish are provided by default with all of our dedicated servers
which are ordered with Hepsia as the Internet hosting Control Panel. These 3 web accelerators offer several gigabytes of dedicated memory and you can employ them to speed up any type of Internet site. Memcached can substantially decrease the load on the server if you have script-driven websites because it caches database responses, therefore it minimizes the amount of database queries the server has to tackle. Node.js will permit you to create scalable apps with real-time user-server interaction like chats or dining booking Internet sites. Its advantage over comparable platforms is that it processes information the moment the end user enters it, so all the information is handled quicker and in small bits. Varnish caches entire webpages the first time a site visitor opens them and delivers them each time the same visitor opens them again, that makes it a universal accelerator for any kind of sites. Because it functions faster than any web server, it can speed up a site at least several times and due to this fact, Varnish is among the most widely used web accelerators out there.
