Know what specifically web accelerators are and just how you are able to benefit from them to boost your web site’s performance.
A web accelerator is a software application that accelerates an Internet site generally by caching content and supplying it instead of the server. Such applications may be used for both dynamic and static sites because there are different accelerators that can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The main advantage of using a web accelerator is that a given website shall perform noticeably faster without employing more resources. On the contrary, this type of a site will require significantly less resources to work since the web accelerator will handle most requests rather than the server. In contrast to many businesses which don't offer web accelerators with their packages or offer just one, we offer three different ones which will enable you to speed up your Internet sites irrespective of their kind or content.
Web Accelerators in Website Hosting
When you purchase one of our website hosting plans, you'll have three well-known web accelerators at your disposal and you'll be able to access them directly using the Hepsia CP which is included with our plans. Varnish is one of the most widely used ones and it can greatly increase the speed of any Internet site because it caches the web pages which a website visitor opens for the first time and delivers them each and every time that website visitor opens them again. Given that Varnish operates faster than any hosting server, the loading speed of any site using the accelerator shall improve considerably. Memcached is employed to cache database and API calls and responses between a website visitor and a hosting server, so it is comparable to Varnish, but is employed mainly for database-driven websites. Because the Internet site shall connect to its database much less, the overall server load will be minimized considerably. The last accelerator, Node.js, is employed for scalable online apps including chats and booking sites since it processes information in real time as soon as it is entered on the website by the users. Based on the package you choose, these accelerators might be available or may be an optional upgrade.
- Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated ServersThe Hepsia CP which is included with our semi-dedicated server plans will enable you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your sites. Memcached is one of the most famous accelerators as it can effortlessly accelerate any API or database-driven website by caching requests and responses, consequently the hosting server won't have to process identical requests again and again. The platform is suitable for Internet sites built with programs like Joomla™, Mambo or WordPress. Varnish is a highly effective accelerator which caches any sort of content and is also often called an HTTP reverse proxy. It caches web pages which are opened by a site visitor for the first time and delivers them every time that same website visitor opens them again. Varnish can easily speed up a site several times because it delivers content faster than any web server. Node.js is a platform employed for scalable real-time applications such as chats, Internet browser games or social networks. It processes information in small bits the moment a user types anything, so it operates faster than similar platforms where users submit big pieces of information that need time to be processed. You'll be able to choose the number of instances and the dedicated memory for every one of the three accelerators via your Control Panel.
- Web Accelerators in VPS ServersIn case you get a VPS server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your sites. All 3 accelerators are integrated within our solutions by default and feature dedicated memory of a few hundred MBs. Node.js is used to create scalable apps where real-time interaction is needed - booking websites, online games, chats, and so forth. It processes the data in smaller portions as the user is entering it, as a result it functions much faster than other platforms which wait for the end users to input one big bit of info. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator that operates as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it in the event that the same guest opens the same page again, which can easily speed any Internet site several times because Varnish functions quicker than any web server. Memcached is used for caching API and database responses, so it's suitable for script-driven sites such as WordPress and Joomla™. This web accelerator can easily lessen the load on your server since it'll decrease the amount of database queries that your Internet sites make.
- Web Accelerators in Dedicated ServersMemcached, Varnish and Node.js are provided with all dedicated servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting CP and depending on the package deal which you pick, you will also have several gbs of dedicated memory for them. Memcached shall reduce the hosting server load by lowering the amount of queries which have to be dealt with as it caches database calls and responses. You shall be able to use it on every site which uses an API or a database - for instance, any site designed with WordPress or Joomla™. Varnish can enhance the performance of any type of site by caching whole pages the first time a visitor opens them. The accelerator provides the pages if the same visitor opens them later and since it does that much faster than the hosting server, the visitor shall be able to browse your website at least a few times faster. This is why Varnish is oftentimes categorised as an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is a sophisticated platform that'll permit you to build booking sites, web chats and other programs in which real-time server-user interaction is necessary. It processes the data in tiny parts as the client fills different boxes and doesn't wait for all boxes to be filled and processed as one big piece of information, which makes Node.js much faster than similar applications.
