Learn what precisely web accelerators are and the way you'll be able to take advantage of them to improve your site’s overall performance.
A web accelerator is a software program that accelerates a website generally by caching content and supplying it instead of the server. Such programs can be used for both dynamic and static sites since there are different accelerators which can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The advantage of using a web accelerator is that a given Internet site shall perform considerably faster without employing more resources. Quite the opposite, such a site will need much less resources to operate because the web accelerator will deal with most requests instead of the server. In contrast to many firms that do not offer web accelerators with their solutions or offer only 1, we offer three different ones which will enable you to speed up your websites irrespective of their type or content.
Web Accelerators in Shared Website Hosting
Our shared website hosting packages come with three web accelerators which you could employ depending on the sites that you'd like to run. Memcached is used to cache database or API calls and responses, which could tremendously improve the performance of dynamic Internet sites. Varnish is a popular HTTP accelerator that caches pages and delivers them to the site visitors much quicker than the web server after the first time they open them. Node.js is an event-driven platform used for scalable real-time applications for example booking websites. With respect to the hosting package you pick, these three applications could already be included or may be optional upgrades. In either case, you'll be able to pick how many instances of every one of them will be at your disposal and how much memory they should employ. These accelerators are supplied only by a few Internet hosting providers, including ours, and they can easily boost the speed of your web apps considerably.
- Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated ServersOur semi-dedicated server packages will permit you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js - three of the most powerful web accelerators out there. Memcached is used to cache database and API calls and responses, thus it can increase the speed of any script-driven website. You may use it for any site designed with WordPress or Joomla™, for instance. Varnish is also often called an HTTP reverse proxy and it's a general-purpose caching platform that could be used for any sort of Internet sites. With regards to the content, it may boost the performance of an Internet site approximately 300%. Node.js is an advanced system employed to develop scalable Internet programs which process info in real time for example booking portals. Its advantage is that unlike comparable platforms, it processes data consistently and in small portions rather than waiting for the user to submit one large chunk of data. The accelerators could be enabled for any site through the Hepsia Control Panel and you shall be able to select how many instances of every one of them shall work and how much memory they will use.
- Web Accelerators in VPS ServersWe provide Memcached, Node.js and Varnish with all VPS servers which are obtained with the Hepsia CP. Your web server shall also come with a few hundred MBs of dedicated memory for these accelerators and the particular amount depends on the plan that you choose. Memcached is used for script-driven Internet sites as it caches database responses, consequently decreasing the number of queries a script sends to its database. It can be employed for any script such as WordPress or Joomla™. Node.js is an effective platform for creating web applications including booking Internet sites and chats. The real-time interaction between users and a web server is carried out by processing small bits of data as soon any user enters anything on the website. In contrast, other platforms await customers to input loads of data before they process it, therefore they operate slowly. Varnish is a multi-purpose accelerator that caches entire web pages and delivers them instead of the hosting server at a much faster rate. It's also known as an HTTP reverse proxy and it can easily speed up any kind of site.
- Web Accelerators in Dedicated ServersIn case you buy a dedicated server from us and you opt for Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel, you shall be able to employ Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your Internet sites. All plans come with several gigabytes of memory dedicated to these accelerators and the exact amount depends on the package deal you select. Node.js is used for scalable online programs such as browser games or hotel booking and it processes the data in real time as the user enters it, which makes it considerably faster than similar platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you employ it for a script-driven website, not simply will the Internet site speed up, but also the load on the server will minimize because there shall be a lesser amount of database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it's not at all limited to databases. Instead, it caches whole webpages once a website visitor opens them and provides them instead of the hosting server whenever the same visitor opens them afterwards. Due to the fact that Varnish processes web requests much faster than any server, the overall performance of a site using this accelerator could increase nearly 300%.
