A web accelerator is a software application which speeds up a site generally by caching content and providing it instead of the hosting server. Such programs may be used for both static and dynamic sites as there are different accelerators that can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The best thing about employing a web accelerator is that a given website will perform significantly faster without using additional system resources. On the contrary, this kind of a site will require significantly less resources to work because the web accelerator will take care of most requests rather than the hosting server. In contrast to many businesses which don't offer web accelerators with their plans or offer just one, we offer 3 different ones that'll permit you to speed up your Internet sites whatever their type or content.
Web Accelerators in Website Hosting
Our website hosting
packages come with three web accelerators that you can employ depending on the sites which you'd like to run. Memcached is employed to cache database or API calls and responses, which could significantly boost the functionality of dynamic sites. Varnish is a popular HTTP accelerator which caches web pages and delivers them to the visitors considerably faster than the hosting server after the first time they open them. Node.js is an event-driven platform employed for scalable real-time programs for example booking sites. Based on the web hosting plan you pick, these three programs could already be included or might be optional upgrades. Regardless, you will be able to choose how many instances of each one of them will be at your disposal and what amount of memory they ought to employ. These accelerators are provided only by several web hosting service providers, including ours, and they could increase the speed of your web programs substantially.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers
You'll be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the Internet sites hosted within your semi-dedicated server
account based on the nature of the site content. Memcached, for example, caches database requests, so it is a superb choice for any script program like WordPress or Joomla™
. This way, the database hosting server shall not have to process the same request if multiple users open a webpage with the same content. Varnish is similar, but it is a general-purpose accelerator since it caches any kind of content the first time a website visitor opens a site. In case this web page is opened again by the same guest, it'll be delivered by Varnish at a greater speed compared to the server. Using this web accelerator will reduce the load created by your sites considerably. Last, but not least, Node.js shall permit you to produce scalable web apps such as hotel booking sites or chats. Its advantage over similar platforms is that it doesn't wait for a user to submit a big piece of data, but processes whatever the user is typing in real-time. The 3 web accelerators are available in the Hepsia Control Panel and you'll be able to choose how many instances of each one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they may use.
Web Accelerators in VPS Servers
If you get a VPS server
with the Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your sites. All three accelerators are integrated in our plans by default and offer dedicated memory of several hundred MBs. Node.js is employed to build scalable applications where real-time interaction is necessary - booking Internet sites, online flash games, chats, etcetera. It processes the data in small portions as the user is entering it, therefore it functions quicker than other platforms which wait for the users to enter one sizeable piece of information. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator that functions as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it when the same site visitor opens the same website again, which can speed any website several times since Varnish works quicker than any server. Memcached is used for caching API and database responses, consequently it is ideal for script-driven websites like WordPress and Joomla™
. This web accelerator can decrease the load on your server since it will decrease the amount of database queries that your websites make.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers
Memcached, Varnish and Node.js come with all dedicated servers
ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and depending on the package deal that you select, you shall also have several gigabytes of dedicated memory for them. Memcached shall reduce the hosting server load by lowering the amount of queries that need to be addressed because it caches database calls and responses. You will be able to use it on every site that uses an API or a database - for example, any website built with WordPress or Joomla™
. Varnish could boost the performance of any kind of website by caching whole pages the first time a guest opens them. The accelerator delivers the pages if the exact same visitor opens them afterwards and considering the fact that it does that considerably faster than the hosting server, the website visitor shall be able to browse your Internet site at least several times faster. This is why Varnish is sometimes called an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is a sophisticated platform that'll enable you to develop booking sites, web chats and other apps where real-time server-user interaction is needed. It processes the info in little pieces as the client fills different boxes and doesn't wait for all boxes to be filled and processed as one sizeable piece of info, which makes Node.js considerably faster than similar apps.
