A web accelerator is a server-side program that speeds up a site. Such a piece of software could function in different ways depending on the website content, but in the typical situation all such applications cache content and deliver it instead of the hosting server. That is valid for both dynamic and static sites since the cached content could be simple text or database responses and the reward of employing a web accelerator isn't just the faster loading website, but also the reduced overall load on the server. This way, you may employ a lower-end hosting plan which will also cost less while your site visitors can still enjoy superior browsing speeds. Few companies offer web accelerators with their hosting packages and they frequently offer only one, while we offer three different ones that'll permit you to boost the performance of any sort of site tremendously.
Web Accelerators in Web Hosting
Our web hosting packages feature 3 web accelerators that you can use depending on the Internet sites which you would like to run. Memcached is employed to cache database or API calls and responses, which can greatly boost the performance of dynamic sites. Varnish is a popular HTTP accelerator that caches pages and provides them to the site visitors much faster than the hosting server after the first time they open them. Node.js is an event-driven platform used for scalable real-time programs including booking sites. Based on the hosting solution you select, these 3 programs might already be included or could be optional upgrades. In either case, you'll be able to pick how many instances of every one of them shall be at your disposal and how much memory they ought to employ. These accelerators are supplied only by a handful of Internet hosting companies, including ours, and they can raise the speed of your web apps considerably.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers
You'll be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the sites hosted inside your semi-dedicated server account depending on the nature of the website content. Memcached, in particular, caches database requests, so it is a great option for any script program like WordPress or Joomla. This way, the database web server shall not need to process exactly the same request if a number of users open a website 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 visitor opens a site. In case that webpage is opened again by the same guest, it'll be provided by Varnish at a greater speed compared to the hosting server. Using this web accelerator will reduce the load produced by your Internet sites significantly. Last, but not least, Node.js shall permit you to create scalable web programs like 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 information, but processes whatever the user is inputting in real-time. The 3 web accelerators are available inside the Hepsia CP and you will be able to select how many instances of every one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they may employ.
Web Accelerators in VPS Servers
In the event that you get a VPS server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you shall be able to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your websites. All 3 accelerators are integrated inside our packages by default and offer dedicated memory of a few hundred MBs. Node.js is used to build scalable programs where real-time interaction is required - booking sites, online flash games, chats, and so forth. It processes the data in smaller portions as the end user is entering it, as a result it operates more quickly than other platforms which wait for the end users to input one big part of data. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator that works as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it if the same guest opens the same website again, which can easily speed any website several times because Varnish functions more quickly than any web server. Memcached is employed for caching API and database responses, so it is ideal for script-driven sites like WordPress and Joomla. This web accelerator can easily minimize the load on your server as it'll lower the amount of database queries which your websites make.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers
If you purchase a dedicated server from our company and you pick Hepsia as the hosting CP, you'll be able to employ Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your sites. All packages include several gigabytes of memory dedicated to those accelerators and the actual amount depends on the plan you choose. Node.js is employed for scalable online programs like browser games or hotel booking and it processes the info instantly as the user enters it, which makes it much quicker than similar platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you use it for a script-driven website, not simply will the site speed up, but also the load on the server will reduce as there will be fewer database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it's not limited to databases. Rather, it caches entire webpages once a website visitor opens them and provides them instead of the web server whenever the same visitor opens them later. Due to the fact that Varnish processes web requests faster than any web server, the overall performance of a website using this accelerator may increase up to 300%.
