Learn what exactly web accelerators are and in what ways you'll be able to benefit from them to improve your web site’s performance.
A web accelerator is a server-side application that accelerates a site. Such a piece of software could work in different ways based on the website content, but in the typical situation all such programs cache content and deliver it instead of the server. This is valid for both static and dynamic sites because the cached content could be simple text or database responses and the reward of employing a web accelerator isn't only the faster loading Internet site, but also the smaller overall load on the server. This way, you could use a lower-end hosting plan that'll also cost less while your website visitors could still enjoy high browsing speeds. Several businesses provide web accelerators with their hosting deals and they typically offer just one, while we offer 3 different ones that'll permit you to boost the performance of any type of website considerably.
Web Accelerators in Cloud Web Hosting
If you acquire one of our cloud web hosting
plans, you'll have three popular web accelerators at your disposal and you will be able to access them directly through the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with our solutions. Varnish is one of the most popular ones and it can greatly accelerate any Internet site since it caches the web pages a website visitor opens for the first time and provides them each and every time that guest opens them again. Given that Varnish functions much faster than any web server, the loading speed of any website using the accelerator shall raise substantially. Memcached is employed to cache database and API calls and responses between a website visitor and a server, so it's similar to Varnish, but is employed primarily for database-driven websites. Because the Internet site shall connect to its database a lot less, the overall hosting server load shall be reduced significantly. The 3rd accelerator, Node.js, is used for scalable online apps like chats and booking websites since it processes info in real time the instant it is entered on the webpage by the users. Based on the plan you select, these accelerators could be available or could be an optional upgrade.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated hosting
plans will allow you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js - three of the most efficient web accelerators available on the market. Memcached is used to cache database and API calls and responses, therefore it could easily increase the speed of any script-driven website. You could use it for any Internet site created with WordPress or Joomla™
, for example. Varnish is also known as an HTTP reverse proxy and it's a general-purpose caching platform that could be used for any kind of websites. With regards to the content, it could boost the performance of a website up to 300%. Node.js is a sophisticated system used to develop scalable Internet apps that process data in real time such as booking portals. Its advantage is that in contrast to similar platforms, it processes information continuously and in small portions rather than waiting for the user to submit one sizeable chunk of data. The accelerators can be enabled for any website through the Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to pick how many instances of every one of them will work and how much memory they'll employ.
Web Accelerators in VPS Web Hosting
We offer Memcached, Node.js and Varnish with all virtual private servers
which are ordered with the Hepsia CP. Your hosting server will also come with several hundred megabytes of dedicated memory for these accelerators and the actual amount would be determined by the plan that you choose. Memcached is used for script-driven Internet sites because it caches database responses, consequently reducing the amount of queries a script sends to its database. It can be employed for any script such as WordPress or Joomla™
. Node.js is an efficient platform for developing web applications such as booking Internet sites and chats. The real-time interaction between end users and a server is carried out by processing little parts of information as soon any user enters anything on the site. By comparison, other platforms await customers to input plenty of data before they process it, thus they operate slowly. Varnish is a multi-purpose accelerator that caches entire pages and provides them instead of the server at a much faster rate. It's also referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy and it can speed up any sort of Internet site.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers Hosting
In case you purchase a dedicated server
from our company and you opt for Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel, you'll be able to use Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your Internet sites. All packages come with several gigabytes of memory dedicated to those accelerators and the actual amount depends on the package that you choose. Node.js is employed for scalable online programs including browser games or hotel booking and it processes the information instantly as the user enters it, which makes it considerably quicker than similar platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you employ it for a script-driven website, not simply will the Internet site work faster, but also the load on the web server will minimize because there shall be less database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it's not at all limited to databases. Rather, it caches whole webpages once a website visitor opens them and provides them instead of the server each time the same visitor opens them later. Since Varnish processes web requests considerably faster than any hosting server, the performance of an Internet site using this accelerator can increase as much as 300%.
