A web accelerator is a software application that speeds up a site generally by caching content and supplying it instead of the web server. Such applications can be used for both static and dynamic sites because there are a variety of accelerators which can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The advantage of employing a web accelerator is that a given Internet site will perform noticeably faster without employing extra resources. Quite the opposite, this type of a site will demand significantly less resources to function as the web accelerator will take care of most requests instead of the server. Contrary to many firms that do not offer web accelerators with their plans or offer only 1, we offer three different ones that'll permit you to speed up your websites whatever their style or content.
Web Accelerators in Shared Website Hosting
When you host your Internet sites in a shared website hosting
account from our firm, you will have 3 popular web accelerators to choose from if you'd like to boost the sites' performance. Memcached is employed for database-driven websites and it caches the calls and requests between an Internet site and its database, so it can easily minimize the load of such Internet sites considerably. Varnish caches entire webpages the first time a site visitor opens them and provides them from there on if the same visitor opens them again. It does that much faster than the hosting server, so it can raise the loading speed of any website as much as 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time programs which functions on the server and not inside the visitor's world-wide web browser. It is employed for holiday accommodation booking, chats and other apps where plenty of data needs to be processed in real time. The availability of those accelerators depends upon the hosting package which you choose - they might come by default or as an upgrade. In both cases, you shall be able to include more instances or more memory for every one of them.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you opt for one of our semi-dedicated server
solutions, you will be able to employ Varnish, Memcached and Node.js - 3 effective web accelerators. Varnish is a multi-purpose program which caches webpages the first time a site visitor opens them and delivers them instead of the web server if the website visitor opens them again up to 300% quicker. Memcached caches API and database calls and responses in order that the server doesn't have to process each and every request, that makes it suitable for database-driven sites, such as ones developed with Joomla™
or WordPress. Node.js is employed to produce web applications that work in real-time such as chats or accommodation booking websites and it processes each and every bit of info the moment the user types it instead of waiting for massive portions of info to be accumulated. The Hepsia CP that comes with our semi-dedicated solutions will enable you to select how many instances of every accelerator shall work at a time and what amount of memory they will use.
Web Accelerators in VPS Servers
If you get a VPS server
with the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your sites. All 3 accelerators are included within our packages by default and feature dedicated memory of a few hundred MBs. Node.js is used to create scalable applications where real-time interaction is necessary - booking Internet sites, online flash games, chats, etc. It processes the info in small portions as the end user is entering it, thus it operates more quickly than other platforms which wait for the users to submit one large bit of data. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator which operates as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it when the same visitor opens the same website again, which could speed any site several times because Varnish functions a lot quicker than any web server. Memcached is employed for caching API and database responses, consequently it's ideal for script-driven websites such as WordPress and Joomla™
. This web accelerator can reduce the load on your server as it will reduce the amount of database queries that your Internet sites make.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers
Memcached, Varnish and Node.js are offered with all dedicated servers
ordered with the Hepsia hosting CP and based on the package which you choose, you'll also have several gbs of dedicated memory for them. Memcached will lessen the web server load by lowering the amount of queries that need to be taken care of as it caches database calls and responses. You'll be able to use it on every site that uses an API or a database - for instance, any website built with WordPress or Joomla™
. Varnish can easily enhance the performance of any kind of website by caching whole webpages the first time a guest opens them. The accelerator provides the pages if the very same visitor opens them later and since it does that considerably faster than the server, the visitor shall be able to browse your website at least a couple of times faster. For this reason Varnish is occasionally called an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is a sophisticated platform that'll enable you to build booking sites, web chats and other apps in which real-time server-user interaction is required. It processes the info in small pieces as the client fills different boxes and does not wait for all boxes to be filled and processed as one substantial piece of data, which makes Node.js way quicker than similar applications.
