A web accelerator is a program that speeds up an Internet site, typically by caching its content. There are various types of accelerators, but in the general case such applications cache static content or database responses and supply them instead of the web server, hence boosting the performance of an Internet site noticeably. The latter is achievable because accelerator apps work faster than a server and not simply will a site operate better, but the server load will also decrease, which will enable you to run heavy websites with less system resources. We offer 3 web accelerators with our hosting solutions, which will allow you to accelerate any sort of site. In comparison, most Internet hosting providers don't provide any web accelerators or offer only 1, which limits your choice of web applications in case you'd like to use this type of software.
Web Accelerators in Web Hosting
In case you host your sites in a web hosting
account from our company, you'll have three popular web accelerators to select from if you'd like to boost the sites' performance. Memcached is used for database-driven sites and it caches the calls and requests between a website and its database, so it can lessen the load of such websites considerably. Varnish caches entire pages the first time a visitor opens them and delivers them from there on if the same visitor opens them again. It does that faster than the web server, so it can easily increase the loading speed of any Internet site up to 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time programs which works on the server and not within the visitor's Internet browser. It's used for holiday accommodation booking, chats and other programs where plenty of data needs to be processed in real time. The availability of these accelerators depends upon the hosting plan that you pick - they might come by default or as an upgrade. In both cases, you will be able to include more instances or more memory for each one of them.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers
You'll be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the Internet sites hosted within your semi-dedicated server
account depending on the nature of the website content. Memcached, in particular, caches database requests, therefore it is an excellent option for any script app like WordPress or Joomla™
. This way, the database hosting server will not need to process the very same request if a number of users open a website 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 website visitor opens a site. If this webpage is opened again by the same guest, it will be delivered by Varnish at a much better speed compared to the server. Employing this web accelerator shall decrease the load produced by your websites considerably. Last, but not least, Node.js shall enable you to create scalable web applications like hotel booking Internet sites or chats. Its advantage over comparable platforms is that it does not wait for a customer to submit a substantial piece of information, but processes whatever the client is entering in real-time. The 3 web accelerators are available in the Hepsia CP and you'll be able to choose how many instances of every one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they'll use.
Web Accelerators in VPS Servers
If you get a VPS server
with the Hepsia Control Panel, you shall be able to employ Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your websites. All 3 accelerators are included in our plans by default and feature dedicated memory of several hundred MBs. Node.js is employed to build scalable programs where real-time interaction is needed - booking sites, online games, chats, etcetera. It processes the information in small bits as the user is entering it, thus it functions quicker than other platforms which wait for the end users to input one big part of data. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator which functions as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it if the same guest opens the same webpage again, which can certainly speed any site several times because Varnish functions quicker than any server. Memcached is employed for caching API and database responses, so it's ideal for script-driven websites like WordPress and Joomla™
. This web accelerator can lessen the load on your web server because it shall lower the amount of database queries that your sites make.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers
Memcached, Node.js and Varnish are available by default with all our dedicated servers
that are ordered with Hepsia as the web hosting CP. These three web accelerators feature several gbs of dedicated memory and you could employ them to speed up any kind of site. Memcached can significantly reduce the load on the web server if you have script-driven websites as it caches database responses, therefore it decreases the amount of database queries the server has to deal with. Node.js will permit you to create scalable applications with real-time user-server interaction such as chats or dining booking sites. Its advantage over very similar platforms is that it processes info as soon as the user enters it, so all the information is managed faster and in small pieces. Varnish caches entire webpages the first time a website visitor opens them and provides them each time the same guest opens them again, which makes it a universal accelerator for any type of Internet sites. Because it operates faster than any hosting server, it could speed up a site at least several times and for that reason, Varnish is one of the most popular web accelerators available on the market.
