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 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 VPS Servers
All VPS servers
that are set up with the Hepsia CP come with Varnish, Memcached and Node.js already included and you shall receive several hundred megabytes of dedicated memory for them by default. Varnish, that's also referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy, caches webpages the first time a website visitor opens them and delivers them if that guest opens them again, so the server won't need to perform any action. Since Varnish functions considerably faster than any hosting server, a site using this accelerator will function several times quicker. Memcached is a platform which caches database calls and responses and it's employed for WordPress, Joomla™
and other script-driven apps which store their content in a database. Node.js is a highly effective platform for creating scalable web programs. Any info on a site that employs Node.js is processed in real time, which makes it a great choice for dining and accommodation booking sites, web-based chats, Internet browser games, etc.
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.
