A web accelerator is a server-side program that speeds up a website. Such a piece of software may work in different ways depending upon the website content, but in the general case all such programs cache content and deliver it instead of the hosting server. That is valid for both dynamic and static sites because the cached content may be simple text or database responses and the advantage of using a web accelerator is not only the faster loading Internet site, but also the decreased overall load on the hosting server. This way, you could employ a lower-end hosting package that will also cost less while your visitors can still enjoy fast browsing speeds. Several businesses provide web accelerators with their hosting plans and they usually offer only 1, while we offer 3 different ones that will permit you to improve the performance of any type of website considerably.
Web Accelerators in Hosting
We provide 3 of the most well-known web accelerators together with our hosting solutions and based on 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 may be employed for any kind of site. It caches the web pages the first time a visitor opens them and provides them at a much faster speed compared to the hosting server every time that a visitor opens them again. Memcached is used to cache API and database calls, so it can easily boost the speed of dynamic Internet sites like online stores, forums or social networks. Node.js is used for scalable web programs and it functions in real-time, which makes it ideal for server-side data processing - chats, browser games, booking portals, and so forth. You will be able to pick just how much memory these accelerators will employ and how many instances of each and every one will run from your Hepsia website hosting CP.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The Hepsia CP that is provided with our semi-dedicated hosting solutions will permit you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your websites. Memcached is one of the most well known accelerators as it can easily increase the speed of any API or database-driven site by caching requests and responses, therefore the web server will not need to process identical requests time after time. The platform is ideal for Internet sites designed with programs such as Joomla, Mambo or WordPress. Varnish is a highly effective accelerator which caches any kind of content and is also frequently called an HTTP reverse proxy. It caches webpages that are opened by a site visitor for the first time and delivers them every time that same visitor opens them again. Varnish can certainly accelerate a website several times simply because it delivers content faster than any hosting server. Node.js is a platform used for scalable real-time programs such as chats, web browser games or social networks. It processes data in smaller bits the moment a user enters something, therefore it functions faster than similar platforms in which users submit large parts of information that need time to be processed. You can choose the number of instances and the dedicated memory for every one of the three accelerators through your Control Panel.
Web Accelerators in VPS Web Hosting
In the event that you choose your virtual private server to be set up with the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to use Varnish, Memcached and Node.js - 3 of the most commonly used web accelerators. Varnish caches sites the first time they are visited and delivers them every time the same person visits them again, which will boost any sort of site several times. Memcached is employed for dynamic script applications for instance Joomla and WordPress because it caches database requests and responses, therefore the database server won't need to process the exact same webpage each time visitors open it in case the same content should be displayed. Node.js is a platform for building real-time programs such as online games and chats. It works faster than similar platforms since it processes the information in tiny portions all the time and does not wait for users to enter a sizable piece of data which will require more time to be processed. The 3 web accelerators are offered with all Hepsia-based VPS solutions and come with several hundred MBs of dedicated memory.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers Hosting
If you choose Hepsia as the hosting CP for your new dedicated server, you will have Memcached, Varnish and Node.js available for increasing the speed of your Internet sites. Memcached will be able to reduce the load on the server by lowering the queries your script-driven sites make since it caches database responses. This web accelerator is perfect for dynamic sites built with WordPress, Joomla and similar scripts. Varnish, which is often called an HTTP reverse proxy, caches whole sites the first time a new guest opens them. It can be employed to speed up any type of website since it delivers the cached content considerably faster than the hosting server each time a guest opens the same page again. You could use Node.js for online apps which require real-time server-client interaction including online chats or booking Internet sites. Different from other platforms that wait for the user to enter everything on a form, Node.js processes the data gradually as the user fills each box, so it works considerably quicker and more effectively. All dedicated server packages feature several gigabytes of memory dedicated to these three web accelerators.
