A web accelerator is a server-side application that quickens an Internet site. Such a piece of software could operate in different ways depending upon the website content, but in the typical situation all such applications cache content and deliver it instead of the web server. That is valid for both static and dynamic sites since the cached content could be simple text or database responses and the benefit of employing a web accelerator isn't only the faster loading site, but also the reduced overall load on the hosting server. That way, you can employ a lower-end hosting solution that will also cost less while your visitors will be able to still enjoy fast browsing speeds. Few firms offer web accelerators with their hosting deals and they typically offer just 1, while we offer 3 different ones which will enable you to boost the performance of any kind of Internet site substantially.
Web Accelerators in Shared Website Hosting
In case you host your websites within a shared website hosting
account from us, you will have three popular web accelerators to choose from if you'd like to improve the sites' performance. Memcached is used for database-driven websites and it caches the calls and requests between a site and its database, so it can decrease the load of such websites tremendously. Varnish caches whole pages the first time a website visitor opens them and delivers them from there on if the same website visitor opens them again. It does that much more quickly than the web server, so it could raise the loading speed of any Internet site approximately 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time programs which functions on the web server and not in the visitor's web browser. It's employed for holiday accommodation booking, chats and other programs where plenty of data should be processed in real time. The availability of the accelerators depends on the hosting plan that you select - they might come by default or as an upgrade. In both cases, you'll be able to add more instances or more memory for each one of them.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel which is included with our semi-dedicated hosting
packages will allow you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your websites. Memcached is one of the most famous accelerators as it can speed up any API or database-driven website by caching requests and responses, consequently the hosting server will not need to process identical requests over and over again. The platform is suitable for websites created with apps like Joomla™
, Mambo or WordPress. Varnish is a powerful accelerator that caches any type of content and is also often called an HTTP reverse proxy. It caches web pages which are opened by a website visitor for the first time and provides them every time that very same guest opens them again. Varnish can easily accelerate an Internet site several times because it delivers content faster than any server. Node.js is a platform used for scalable real-time apps such as chats, web browser games or social networks. It processes info in smaller parts as soon as a user types anything, so it functions considerably faster than similar platforms where users submit sizeable pieces of information that require time to be processed. You can choose the number of instances and the dedicated memory for each and every one of the 3 accelerators through your CP.
Web Accelerators in VPS Hosting
All virtual private servers
which are integrated with the Hepsia CP come with Varnish, Memcached and Node.js already included and you'll get several hundred MBs of dedicated memory for them by default. Varnish, that is also often called an HTTP reverse proxy, caches pages the first time a visitor opens them and delivers them if that guest opens them again, hence the web server will not need to perform any action. Since Varnish functions much faster than any server, a website using this accelerator will operate several times faster. Memcached is a platform that caches database calls and responses and it is employed for WordPress, Joomla™
and other script-driven applications which store their content inside a database. Node.js is an efficient platform for creating scalable web programs. Any data on a website which uses Node.js is processed instantly, making it a fantastic choice for dining and accommodation booking sites, web-based chats, Internet browser games, etc.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Web Hosting
In case you order a dedicated server
from us and you select Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel, you'll be able to use Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your sites. All plans include several gigabytes of memory dedicated to those accelerators and the exact amount depends on the plan that you select. Node.js is employed for scalable online programs including browser games or hotel booking and it processes the data right away as the user enters it, which makes it much quicker than comparable platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you employ it for a script-driven site, not only will the Internet site work faster, but also the load on the server will decline because there will be considerably less database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it isn't limited to databases. Rather, it caches entire web pages once a guest opens them and delivers them instead of the web server each time the same visitor opens them later on. Due to the fact that Varnish processes web requests considerably faster than any server, the overall performance of a site using this accelerator can increase nearly 300%.
