A web accelerator is a server-side program which speeds up a website. Such a piece of software may operate in different ways depending upon the site content, but in the general case all such apps cache content and deliver it instead of the web server. This is valid for both static and dynamic websites since the cached content can be simple text or database responses and the benefit of using a web accelerator is not only the faster loading website, but also the decreased overall load on the web server. That way, you can employ a lower-end hosting solution that'll also cost less while your website visitors will be able to still enjoy fast browsing speeds. Few companies supply web accelerators with their hosting plans and they frequently offer just 1, while we offer three different ones which will enable you to boost the performance of any type of Internet site substantially.
Web Accelerators in Hosting
packages feature 3 web accelerators that you could employ depending on the websites which you would like to run. Memcached is used to cache database or API calls and responses, which can tremendously enhance the functionality of dynamic websites. 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 used for scalable real-time applications such as booking websites. With respect to the web hosting package you choose, these 3 apps may already be included or may be optional upgrades. Either way, you shall be able to select how many instances of each of them shall be at your disposal and what amount of memory they ought to employ. These accelerators are supplied only by several hosting companies, including ours, and they can boost the speed of your web programs considerably.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated hosting
solutions shall enable you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js - 3 of the most efficient web accelerators available. Memcached is employed to cache database and API calls and responses, thus it can increase the speed of any script-driven Internet site. You can use it for any site built with WordPress or Joomla™
, for instance. Varnish is also referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy and it is a general-purpose caching platform that could be employed for any sort of sites. Based on the content, it can boost the performance of an Internet site approximately 300%. Node.js is an innovative system used to build scalable Internet apps that process info in real time for instance booking portals. Its advantage is that in contrast to comparable platforms, it processes info continuously and in small portions rather than waiting for the user to submit one large chunk of data. The accelerators may be enabled for any site through the Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to choose how many instances of each one of them shall work and how much memory they shall use.
Web Accelerators in VPS
All virtual private servers
which are incorporated with the Hepsia CP come with Varnish, Memcached and Node.js already included and you shall receive several hundred MBs of dedicated memory for them by default. Varnish, that's also often called an HTTP reverse proxy, caches web pages the first time a site visitor opens them and provides them if that visitor opens them again, therefore the web server won't need to perform any action. Since Varnish functions faster than any hosting server, a site employing this accelerator will work several times faster. Memcached is a platform that caches database calls and responses and it is used for WordPress, Joomla™
and other script-driven applications which store their content inside a database. Node.js is an efficient platform for building scalable web applications. Any info on a website which uses Node.js is processed in real time, which makes it a fantastic choice for dining and accommodation booking sites, web-based chats, Internet browser games, and so on.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Hosting
Memcached, Node.js and Varnish are provided by default with all of our dedicated servers
which are ordered with Hepsia as the website hosting CP. These three web accelerators include several gigabytes of dedicated memory and you could employ them to speed up any type of website. Memcached can greatly decrease the load on the hosting server if you have script-driven sites because it caches database responses, thus it minimizes the number of database queries that the web server has to tackle. Node.js shall allow you to build scalable applications with real-time user-server interaction such as chats or dining booking sites. Its advantage over similar platforms is that it processes info the instant the end user enters it, so all the info is taken care of faster and in small portions. Varnish caches whole webpages the first time a website visitor opens them and delivers them each and every time the same guest opens them again, that makes it a universal accelerator for any type of sites. Because it works quicker than any server, it can speed up an Internet site at least several times and for that reason, Varnish is amongst the most widely used web accelerators around.
