A web accelerator is a piece of software that speeds up an Internet site generally by caching content and delivering it instead of the web server. Such programs can be employed for both static and dynamic Internet sites since there are various accelerators which can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The advantage of using a web accelerator is that a given website will perform noticeably faster without employing extra resources. Quite the opposite, this type of a website will need significantly less resources to work since the web accelerator will tackle most requests rather than the server. Unlike many companies that don't offer web accelerators with their plans or offer just one, we offer three different ones that'll allow you to speed up your websites regardless of their kind or content.
Web Accelerators in Hosting
When you host your Internet sites within a hosting account from us, you will have 3 popular web accelerators to choose from if you'd like to enhance the sites' efficiency. Memcached is used for database-driven sites and it caches the calls and requests between an Internet site and its database, so it can easily minimize the load of such websites substantially. Varnish caches entire pages the first time a visitor opens them and delivers them from there on if the same website visitor opens them again. It does that faster than the server, so it could boost the loading speed of any Internet site up to 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time apps which functions on the web server and not within the visitor's browser. It is used for accommodation booking, chats and other apps where a lot of data should be processed in real time. The availability of the accelerators depends upon the hosting plan which you pick - they may come by default or as an upgrade. In both cases, you will be able to add more instances or more memory for every one of them.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the websites hosted within your semi-dedicated server account based on the nature of the site content. Memcached, for example, caches database requests, therefore it is a great choice for any script app like WordPress or Joomla. That way, the database server shall not need to process the very same request if many users open a site with the same content. Varnish is similar, but it's a general-purpose accelerator since it caches any sort of content the first time a guest opens a site. If that web page is opened again by the very same website visitor, it'll be provided by Varnish at a much better speed compared to the hosting server. Using this web accelerator shall reduce the load generated by your Internet sites significantly. Last, but not least, Node.js shall enable you to build scalable web apps like hotel booking Internet sites or chats. Its advantage over comparable platforms is that it does not wait for a user to submit a substantial piece of info, but processes whatever the client is entering in real-time. The three web accelerators are available within the Hepsia CP and you shall be able to pick how many instances of each one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they'll use.
Web Accelerators in VPS Servers
In case you obtain a VPS server with the Hepsia CP, you'll be able to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your websites. All three accelerators are included within our plans by default and offer dedicated memory of a few hundred megabytes. Node.js is used to create scalable apps where real-time interaction is needed - booking Internet sites, online games, chats, and so on. It processes the data in small pieces as the user is entering it, thus it operates faster than other platforms which wait for the end users to submit one large piece of info. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator that works as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it in case the same guest opens the same webpage again, which can easily speed any Internet site several times because Varnish operates quicker than any web server. Memcached is used for caching API and database responses, therefore it is ideal for script-driven sites such as WordPress and Joomla. This web accelerator will be able to minimize the load on your server as it will reduce the number of database queries 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 website hosting Control Panel. These three web accelerators include several gbs of dedicated memory and you may use them to speed up any sort of website. Memcached can drastically reduce the load on the server if you have script-driven Internet sites since it caches database responses, so it decreases the number of database queries that the server has to tackle. Node.js shall enable you to create scalable apps with real-time user-server interaction such as chats or dining booking sites. Its advantage over comparable platforms is that it processes data the moment the user enters it, so all the info is managed swifter and in small pieces. Varnish caches entire pages the first time a site visitor opens them and provides them each and every time the same visitor opens them again, that makes it a universal accelerator for any sort of websites. As it works quicker than any hosting server, it could speed up a website at least several times and for that reason, Varnish is one of the most widely used web accelerators out there.
