A web accelerator is a server-side application which speeds up an Internet site. Such a piece of software can function in different ways depending upon the website content, but in the typical case all such apps cache content and deliver it instead of the server. That's valid for both dynamic and static websites because the cached content can be simple text or database responses and the reward of employing a web accelerator is not just the faster loading Internet site, but also the smaller overall load on the machine. That way, you'll be able to employ a lower-end hosting solution that will also cost less while your visitors could still enjoy superior browsing speeds. Several businesses offer web accelerators with their hosting plans and they often offer only one, while we offer 3 different ones which will permit you to boost the performance of any type of site significantly.
Web Accelerators in Shared Web Hosting
In case you host your sites in a shared web hosting
account from our firm, you'll have 3 popular web accelerators to choose from if you'd like to boost the sites' functionality. Memcached is employed for database-driven sites and it caches the calls and requests between a website and its database, so it can reduce the load of such sites tremendously. Varnish caches entire pages the first time a website visitor opens them and delivers them from there on if the same website visitor opens them again. It does that much more quickly than the hosting server, so it could increase the loading speed of any website nearly 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time apps that functions on the server and not inside the visitor's Internet browser. It's used for holiday accommodation booking, chats and other programs where loads of data needs to be processed in real time. The availability of the accelerators depends on the hosting plan that you choose - they may come by default or as an upgrade. In each case, you shall be able to add more instances or more memory for every one of them.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers
The Hepsia CP which comes with our semi-dedicated server
packages will allow you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your websites. Memcached is one of the most popular accelerators as it can speed up any API or database-driven Internet site by caching requests and responses, consequently the hosting server won't need to process identical requests over and over again. The platform is perfect for sites created with applications like Joomla™
, Mambo or WordPress. Varnish is an effective accelerator that caches any type of content and is also frequently called an HTTP reverse proxy. It caches pages which are opened by a website visitor for the first time and provides them each time that very same website visitor opens them again. Varnish can accelerate an Internet site several times as it delivers content faster than any hosting server. Node.js is a platform employed for scalable real-time programs such as chats, web browser games or social networks. It processes information in little pieces the moment a user enters anything, so it functions much more quickly than similar platforms where users submit big pieces of data which need time to be processed. You could choose the number of instances and the dedicated memory for every one of the three accelerators using your CP.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers
If you select Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel for your new dedicated server, you'll have Memcached, Varnish and Node.js available for speeding up your sites. Memcached can easily decrease the load on the web server by lowering the queries your script-driven websites make because it caches database responses. This web accelerator is good for dynamic websites created with WordPress, Joomla™
and similar scripts. Varnish, which is referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy, caches entire webpages the first time a new website visitor opens them. It can be employed to accelerate any kind of site since it delivers the cached content considerably faster than the hosting server every time a guest opens the same page again. You could employ Node.js for online programs that call for real-time server-client interaction such as online chats or booking Internet sites. Unlike other platforms which wait for the user to fill everything on a form, Node.js processes the info piece by piece as the user fills every box, so it works much faster and more effectively. All dedicated server
packages feature several gigabytes of memory dedicated to these 3 web accelerators.
