Find out what precisely web accelerators are and the way it is possible to benefit from them to boost your website’s performance.
A web accelerator is a piece of software which accelerates an Internet site generally by caching content and providing it instead of the server. Such apps can be used for both dynamic and static websites because there are different accelerators which can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The advantage of employing a web accelerator is that a given website shall perform considerably faster without using more system resources. Just the opposite, such a site will need a lesser amount of resources to operate since the web accelerator will handle most requests rather than the hosting server. Unlike many businesses that do not offer web accelerators with their plans or offer only one, we offer 3 different ones that will permit you to speed up your websites whatever their style or content.
Web Accelerators in Shared Web Hosting
If you host your sites in a shared web hosting account from us, you will have 3 popular web accelerators to choose from if you would like to enhance the sites' performance. Memcached is used for database-driven websites and it caches the calls and requests between an Internet site and its database, so it can easily reduce the load of such websites substantially. Varnish caches whole pages the first time a visitor opens them and provides them from there on if the same visitor opens them again. It does that much faster than the web server, so it can easily boost the loading speed of any website up to 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time programs that works on the hosting server and not in the visitor's web browser. It's employed for holiday accommodation booking, chats and other programs where loads of data has to be processed in real time. The availability of the accelerators depends on the hosting solution which you select - they might come by default or as an upgrade. In both cases, you shall be able to include more instances or more memory for each one of them.
- Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated HostingThe Hepsia CP that is provided with our semi-dedicated hosting plans shall allow you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your sites. Memcached is among the most well known accelerators because it can increase the speed of any API or database-driven Internet site by caching requests and responses, thus the server shall not need to process identical requests again and again. The platform is perfect for sites created with programs like Joomla™, Mambo or WordPress. Varnish is a powerful accelerator that caches any sort of content and is also known as an HTTP reverse proxy. It caches pages that are opened by a site visitor for the first time and provides them each and every time that very same website visitor opens them again. Varnish can certainly speed up an Internet site several times as it delivers content quicker than any server. Node.js is a platform employed for scalable real-time apps like chats, browser games or social networks. It processes information in small pieces as soon as a user types anything, as a result it operates much more quickly than similar platforms where users submit massive parts of data which require time to be processed. You could 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 Web HostingIn case you obtain a virtual private server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to employ Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your websites. All three accelerators are integrated within our solutions by default and feature dedicated memory of a few hundred megabytes. Node.js is used to develop scalable programs where real-time interaction is needed - booking websites, online games, chats, and so on. It processes the information in small bits as the user is entering it, thus it operates quicker than other platforms that wait for the end users to enter one large piece of information. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator which operates as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it if the same site visitor opens the same website again, which can easily speed any Internet site several times as Varnish operates quicker than any web server. Memcached is employed for caching API and database responses, consequently it is suitable for script-driven sites like WordPress and Joomla™. This web accelerator will be able to reduce the load on your hosting server because it shall reduce the number of database queries that your Internet sites make.
- Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers HostingIn the event that you get a dedicated server from our firm and you choose Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel, you'll be able to use Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your Internet sites. All solutions feature several gigabytes of memory dedicated to these accelerators and the specific amount depends on the package deal that you choose. Node.js is used for scalable online applications like browser games or hotel booking and it processes the info instantly as the client enters it, which makes it faster than similar platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you use it for a script-driven website, not simply will the website work faster, but also the load on the hosting server will decrease because there shall be fewer database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it isn't limited to databases. Instead, it caches entire web pages once a guest opens them and delivers them instead of the web server each and every time the same visitor opens them afterwards. As Varnish processes web requests considerably faster than any hosting server, the performance of an Internet site using this accelerator may increase around 300%.
