A web accelerator is a software program that speeds up an Internet site typically by caching content and providing it instead of the hosting server. Such applications may be employed for both static and dynamic Internet sites since there are various accelerators that can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The benefit of using a web accelerator is that a given Internet site will perform considerably faster without using additional system resources. Quite the opposite, such a website will require significantly less resources to work because the web accelerator will tackle most requests instead of the hosting server. In contrast to many businesses which don't offer web accelerators with their solutions or offer only one, we offer three different ones which will permit you to speed up your sites regardless of their kind or content.
Web Accelerators in Shared Web Hosting
In case you host your websites within a shared web hosting account from our firm, you will have three popular web accelerators to choose from if you would like to boost the sites' efficiency. Memcached is employed for database-driven Internet sites and it caches the calls and requests between a website and its database, so it can easily reduce the load of such sites considerably. Varnish caches entire pages the first time a website visitor opens them and delivers them from there on if the same guest opens them again. It does that much faster than the server, so it can easily raise the loading speed of any Internet site approximately 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time applications which operates on the web server and not inside the visitor's web browser. It is employed for accommodation booking, chats and other applications where a lot of data needs to be processed in real time. The availability of those accelerators depends upon the hosting plan that you choose - they may come by default or as an upgrade. In both cases, you shall be able to include more instances or more memory for each of them.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the sites hosted within your semi-dedicated server account based on the nature of the site content. Memcached, for instance, caches database requests, therefore it is an excellent choice for any script application like WordPress or Joomla. This way, the database hosting server shall not have to process the exact same request if a number of users open a website with the same content. Varnish is comparable, but it is a general-purpose accelerator as it caches any sort of content the first time a visitor opens a page. If that webpage is opened again by the very same visitor, it will be delivered by Varnish at a much better speed compared to the web server. Using this web accelerator will decrease the load generated by your websites substantially. Last, but not least, Node.js shall allow you to produce scalable web apps like hotel booking sites or chats. Its advantage over comparable platforms is that it doesn't wait for a client to submit a substantial piece of information, but processes whatever the customer is inputting in real-time. The 3 web accelerators are available inside the Hepsia Control Panel 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 employ.
Web Accelerators in VPS Servers
In the event that you obtain a VPS server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your Internet sites. All 3 accelerators are incorporated in our packages by default and come with dedicated memory of several hundred megabytes. Node.js is used to create scalable apps where real-time interaction is required - booking sites, online games, chats, etcetera. It processes the information in smaller pieces as the user is entering it, as a result it functions much faster than other platforms that wait for the users to input one massive bit of data. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator which operates as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it in the event that the same guest opens the same website again, which can speed any website several times since Varnish works faster than any web server. Memcached is used for caching API and database responses, therefore it is ideal for script-driven Internet sites such as WordPress and Joomla. This web accelerator will be able to minimize the load on your hosting server because it shall lower the amount of database queries which your websites make.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers
If you buy a dedicated server from us and you opt for Hepsia as the hosting CP, you will be able to use Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your Internet sites. All plans include several gigabytes of memory dedicated to these accelerators and the specific amount depends on the plan that you choose. Node.js is employed for scalable online programs including browser games or hotel booking and it processes the information right away as the user enters it, which makes it considerably quicker than similar platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you use it for a script-driven Internet site, not simply will the site speed up, but also the load on the hosting server will reduce because there will be a lesser amount of database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it's not limited to databases. Instead, it caches entire pages once a website visitor opens them and delivers them instead of the server each and every time the same visitor opens them later on. Since Varnish processes web requests considerably faster than any hosting server, the overall performance of an Internet site using this accelerator could increase nearly 300%.
