Find out what precisely web accelerators are and how it is possible to take advantage of them to improve your website’s efficiency.
A web accelerator is a program that speeds up a site, normally by caching its content. There are various kinds of accelerators, but in the common case this sort of programs cache static content or database responses and supply them instead of the web server, thus improving the performance of an Internet site drastically. The latter is achievable because accelerator apps work faster than a web server and not only will an Internet site operate better, but the server load will also decline, which will permit you to run heavy sites with less resources. We provide three web accelerators with our hosting solutions, which will permit you to increase the speed of any type of Internet site. In comparison, most Internet hosting firms do not provide any web accelerators or offer one, which limits your choice of web apps if you'd like to employ this type of software.
Web Accelerators in Web Hosting
Our web hosting plans include three web accelerators that you could employ depending on the sites which you would like to run. Memcached is employed to cache database or API calls and responses, which can tremendously enhance the performance of dynamic sites. Varnish is a popular HTTP accelerator that caches web pages and provides them to the site visitors much quicker than the hosting server after the first time they open them. Node.js is an event-driven platform employed for scalable real-time programs including booking websites. Depending upon the hosting solution you choose, these three apps may already be included or might be optional upgrades. In either case, you'll be able to choose how many instances of each one of them shall be at your disposal and how much memory they should use. These accelerators are offered only by several hosting service providers, including ours, and they can boost the speed of your web apps substantially.
- Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated ServersThe Hepsia CP that is provided with our semi-dedicated server plans will allow you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your Internet sites. Memcached is one of the most popular accelerators because it can effortlessly increase the speed of any API or database-driven site by caching requests and responses, thus the web server shall not need to process identical requests time and time again. The platform is ideal for sites designed with apps like Joomla™, Mambo or WordPress. Varnish is an efficient 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 website visitor for the first time and provides them each and every time that same guest opens them again. Varnish can certainly accelerate an Internet site several times since it delivers content quicker than any server. Node.js is a platform used for scalable real-time applications such as chats, Internet browser games or social networks. It processes info in little parts the instant a user types something, so it works much more quickly than similar platforms where users submit big portions of data that require 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 ServersIf you obtain a VPS server with the Hepsia CP, you shall be able to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your sites. All 3 accelerators are integrated inside our packages by default and come with dedicated memory of a few hundred megabytes. Node.js is used to develop scalable apps where real-time interaction is needed - booking Internet sites, online games, chats, etc. It processes the information in small parts as the end user is entering it, therefore it works quicker than other platforms that wait for the end users to enter one large bit of information. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator that works as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it when the same website visitor opens the same webpage again, which could speed any site several times due to the fact that Varnish operates faster than any web server. Memcached is used for caching API and database responses, consequently it's appropriate for script-driven Internet sites such as WordPress and Joomla™. This web accelerator can easily minimize the load on your hosting server as it will reduced the number of database queries which your websites make.
- Web Accelerators in Dedicated ServersMemcached, Node.js and Varnish are provided by default with all our dedicated servers that are ordered with Hepsia as the web hosting Control Panel. These three web accelerators include several gigabytes of dedicated memory and you can use them to speed up any kind of site. Memcached can significantly minimize the load on the hosting server if you have script-driven websites as it caches database responses, thus it decreases the number of database queries which the web server has to take care of. Node.js shall allow you to build scalable programs with real-time user-server interaction including chats or dining booking websites. Its advantage over comparable platforms is that it processes data the moment the end user enters it, so all the data is taken care of swifter and in small pieces. Varnish caches whole webpages the first time a site visitor opens them and delivers them each time the same visitor opens them again, that makes it a universal accelerator for any kind of websites. Since it operates quicker than any web server, it can easily speed up a website at least several times and because of this, Varnish is among the most popular web accelerators available on the market.
