Find out what specifically web accelerators are and exactly how you'll be able to take advantage of them to boost your site’s performance.
A web accelerator is a piece of software which accelerates an Internet site usually by caching content and supplying it instead of the hosting server. Such applications may be used for both dynamic and static sites as there are various accelerators which can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The best thing about using a web accelerator is that a given Internet site shall perform noticeably faster without using extra system resources. Quite the opposite, such a website will need significantly less resources to function because the web accelerator will tackle most requests rather than the hosting server. In contrast to many firms which don't offer web accelerators with their plans or offer just one, we offer three different ones that will allow you to speed up your sites irrespective of their kind or content.
Web Accelerators in Shared Website Hosting
In case you host your websites within a shared website hosting account from us, you'll have 3 popular web accelerators to select from if you'd like to boost the sites' functionality. Memcached is employed for database-driven Internet sites and it caches the calls and requests between a website and its database, so it could lessen the load of such websites drastically. Varnish caches entire webpages the first time a site visitor opens them and provides them from there on if the same guest opens them again. It does that faster than the server, so it can easily increase the loading speed of any website up to 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time apps that operates on the server and not in the visitor's world-wide web browser. It is used for holiday accommodation booking, chats and other programs where loads of data has to be processed in real time. The availability of these accelerators depends on the hosting plan that you choose - they could come by default or as an upgrade. In both cases, you'll be able to include more instances or more memory for each of them.
- Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated ServersOur semi-dedicated server packages shall allow you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js - 3 of the most efficient web accelerators out there. Memcached is used to cache database and API calls and responses, thus it can easily increase the speed of any script-driven Internet site. You can use it for any site designed with WordPress or Joomla™, for example. Varnish is also often called an HTTP reverse proxy and it's a general-purpose caching platform which can be used for any type of Internet sites. Based on the content, it could boost the performance of an Internet site up to 300%. Node.js is a sophisticated system used to build scalable Internet applications that process data in real time for example booking portals. Its advantage is that in contrast to similar platforms, it processes info consistently and in small portions rather than waiting for the user to submit one massive chunk of data. The accelerators may be enabled for any website through the Hepsia Control Panel and you'll be able to pick how many instances of every one of them will work and how much memory they'll use.
- Web Accelerators in VPS ServersWe provide Memcached, Node.js and Varnish with all VPS servers that are acquired with the Hepsia CP. Your hosting server shall also come with a few hundred MBs of dedicated memory for these accelerators and the specific amount depends on the package deal that you select. Memcached is used for script-driven sites as it caches database responses, thus decreasing the amount of queries a script sends to its database. It can be used for any script like WordPress or Joomla™. Node.js is a highly effective platform for developing web apps including booking sites and chats. The real-time interaction between end users and a hosting server is performed by processing small parts of data as soon any user inputs anything on the webpage. By comparison, other platforms await customers to input plenty of information before they process it, thus they function slowly. Varnish is a multi-purpose accelerator that caches whole pages and delivers them instead of the web server at a considerably faster rate. It is also referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy and it can speed up any type of website.
- Web Accelerators in Dedicated ServersIn case you select Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel for your new dedicated server, you shall have Memcached, Varnish and Node.js at your disposal for speeding up your Internet sites. Memcached can easily lessen the load on the hosting server by lowering the queries your script-driven Internet sites make because it caches database responses. This web accelerator is great for dynamic websites designed with WordPress, Joomla™ and similar scripts. Varnish, which is known as an HTTP reverse proxy, caches entire pages the first time a new guest opens them. It can be used to speed up any sort of website because it provides the cached content considerably faster than the hosting server every time a visitor opens the same site again. You could use Node.js for online programs which require real-time server-client interaction including online chats or booking sites. In contrast to other platforms which wait for the user to fill everything on a form, Node.js processes the information gradually as the user fills every box, so it functions faster and more effectively. All dedicated server plans include several gigabytes of memory dedicated to these three web accelerators.
