Just what do web accelerators do? What could you do to boost your website's load speed?
A web accelerator is a software program that speeds up a website usually by caching content and supplying it instead of the server. Such programs may be employed for both dynamic and static websites as 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 Internet site shall perform significantly faster without using more resources. Just the opposite, this type of a site will require significantly less resources to operate because the web accelerator will deal with most requests rather than the server. In contrast to many companies that don't offer web accelerators with their plans or offer only 1, we offer three different ones that will enable you to speed up your Internet sites irrespective of their style or content.
Web Accelerators in Cloud Website Hosting
We offer 3 of the most well-known web accelerators together with our cloud website hosting
packages and based on what plan you'll select when you sign up, they might already be available or they could be an optional upgrade. Varnish is the most popular one of them and it may be used for any sort of website. It caches the web pages the first time a website visitor opens them and delivers them at a faster speed compared to the hosting server each and every time that a website visitor opens them again. Memcached is employed to cache API and database calls, so it can easily increase the speed of dynamic Internet sites including online stores, forums or social networks. Node.js is used for scalable web programs and it functions in real-time, which makes it excellent for server-side data processing - chats, browser games, booking portals, and many others. You will be able to select what amount of memory these accelerators will use and how many instances of each one will run from your Hepsia Internet hosting Control Panel.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server
plans shall allow you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js - 3 of the most efficient web accelerators available. Memcached is used to cache database and API calls and responses, therefore it could easily boost any script-driven website. You may use it for any Internet site developed with WordPress or Joomla™
, for instance. Varnish is also often called an HTTP reverse proxy and it's a general-purpose caching platform which could be employed for any type of websites. Based on the content, it can easily improve the performance of an Internet site close to 300%. Node.js is an advanced system employed to develop scalable Internet apps which process info in real time such as booking portals. Its advantage is that unlike similar platforms, it processes information constantly and in small bits instead of waiting for the user to submit one massive chunk of data. The accelerators can be enabled for any Internet site via the Hepsia CP and you shall be able to select how many instances of every one of them shall work and how much memory they shall employ.
Web Accelerators in VPS Servers
If you obtain a VPS server
with the Hepsia CP, you'll be able to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your websites. All 3 accelerators are incorporated in our solutions by default and offer dedicated memory of a few hundred MBs. Node.js is used to develop scalable apps where real-time interaction is necessary - booking websites, online games, chats, etcetera. It processes the data in smaller portions as the user is entering it, as a result it works much faster than other platforms that wait for the end users to submit one large part of information. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator that functions as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it in the event that the same visitor opens the same website again, which can certainly speed any Internet site several times because Varnish functions a lot quicker than any hosting 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 decrease the load on your hosting server as it'll lower the number of database queries which your websites make.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers
Memcached, Varnish and Node.js are offered with all dedicated servers
ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and based on the package deal which you select, you shall also have several gigabytes of dedicated memory for them. Memcached shall reduce the web server load by lowering the number of queries which have to be handled since it caches database calls and responses. You shall be able to use it on every website which uses an API or a database - for example, any site developed with WordPress or Joomla™
. Varnish could improve the performance of any kind of website by caching whole pages the first time a guest opens them. The accelerator provides the pages if the exact same visitor opens them later and because it does that way quicker than the server, the visitor shall be able to look through your site at least a couple of times faster. That is why Varnish is often categorised as an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is an innovative platform which will enable you to develop booking sites, web chats and other applications in which real-time server-user interaction is required. It processes the information in tiny portions as the user fills different boxes and does not wait for all boxes to be filled and processed as one sizeable piece of data, which makes Node.js much faster than similar programs.
