A web accelerator is a server-side application that speeds up an Internet site. Such a piece of software may operate in different ways depending upon the site content, but in the general situation all such apps cache content and deliver it instead of the web server. That is valid for both static and dynamic Internet sites as the cached content could be simple text or database responses and the advantage of using a web accelerator is not only the faster loading website, but also the minimized overall load on the web server. That way, you'll be able to employ a lower-end hosting solution that will also cost less while your visitors will be able to still enjoy superior browsing speeds. Several firms offer web accelerators with their hosting deals and they typically offer only 1, while we offer 3 different ones that will permit you to boost the performance of any sort of Internet site substantially.
Web Accelerators in Cloud Website Hosting
Our cloud website hosting plans include 3 web accelerators which you could use depending on the sites which you'd like to run. Memcached is used to cache database or API calls and responses, which could significantly enhance the efficiency of dynamic websites. Varnish is a popular HTTP accelerator which caches pages and delivers them to the site 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 apps for example booking websites. Based on the Internet hosting plan you select, these three applications may already be included or might be optional upgrades. Regardless, you'll be able to pick how many instances of each one of them will be at your disposal and what amount of memory they should employ. These accelerators are offered only by several hosting firms, including ours, and they can raise the speed of your web applications substantially.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the websites hosted inside your semi-dedicated server account in accordance with the nature of the website content. Memcached, for instance, caches database requests, therefore it's an excellent choice for any script program such as WordPress or Joomla. That way, the database server shall not need to process exactly the same request if multiple users open a website with the same content. Varnish is comparable, but it's a general-purpose accelerator because it caches any kind of content the first time a website visitor opens a page. If this webpage is opened again by the exact same guest, it shall be delivered by Varnish at a much better speed compared to the web server. Employing this web accelerator will minimize the load created by your sites tremendously. Last, but not least, Node.js will enable you to build scalable web applications such as hotel booking websites or chats. Its advantage over very similar platforms is that it does not wait for a user to submit a large piece of data, but processes whatever the customer is typing in real-time. The 3 web accelerators are available within the Hepsia Control Panel and you shall be able to choose how many instances of every one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they may use.
Web Accelerators in VPS Servers
In case you choose your VPS server to be integrated with the Hepsia CP, you'll be able to use Varnish, Memcached and Node.js - three of the most widely used web accelerators. Varnish caches pages the first time they're visited and provides them each time the same individual visits them again, which can speed up any type of site several times. Memcached is used for dynamic script apps for instance Joomla and WordPress since it caches database requests and responses, therefore the database web server will not have to process the very same page each time guests open it in case the same content should be shown. Node.js is a platform for creating real-time applications for example online games and chats. It functions much quicker than similar platforms because it processes the information in small parts all the time and does not wait for users to enter a sizable piece of data that shall require more time to be processed. The 3 web accelerators are provided with all Hepsia-based VPS plans and feature several hundred megabytes of dedicated memory.
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 that you pick, you will also have several gbs of dedicated memory for them. Memcached shall decrease the server load by lowering the number of queries that need to be dealt with as it caches database calls and responses. You shall be able to use it on any website which uses an API or a database - as an example, any website built with WordPress or Joomla. Varnish could enhance the performance of any type of Internet site by caching whole webpages the first time a guest opens them. The accelerator delivers the web pages if the very same visitor opens them later on and given that it does that considerably faster than the web server, the visitor shall be able to look through your site at least a few times faster. That is why Varnish is occasionally referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is an advanced platform that will permit you to build booking sites, web chats and other programs in which real-time server-user interaction is necessary. It processes the information in little pieces as the user fills different boxes and does not wait for all boxes to be filled and processed as one sizeable chunk of data, which makes Node.js much quicker than similar apps.
