A web accelerator is a server-side program which accelerates an Internet site. Such a piece of software could operate in different ways depending on the website content, but in the typical case all such applications cache content and deliver it instead of the web server. That is valid for both dynamic and static sites since the cached content can be simple text or database responses and the advantage of using a web accelerator isn't only the faster loading website, but also the smaller overall load on the server. This way, you can use a lower-end hosting solution which will also cost less while your visitors can still enjoy fast browsing speeds. Handful of companies offer web accelerators with their hosting packages and they often offer just one, while we offer three different ones that'll permit you to enhance the performance of any type of site tremendously.
Web Accelerators in Shared Web Hosting
When you get one of our shared web hosting solutions, you'll have three widely used web accelerators at your disposal and you will be able to access them directly using the Hepsia CP that comes with our solutions. Varnish is one of the most widely used ones and it could greatly increase the speed of any website as it caches the pages that a visitor opens for the first time and provides them each and every time that visitor opens them again. Because Varnish functions way quicker than any server, the loading speed of any Internet site using the accelerator will increase substantially. Memcached is employed to cache database and API calls and responses between a visitor and a hosting server, so it is much like Varnish, but is used mainly for database-driven websites. Considering that the site will connect to its database way less, the overall web server load shall be decreased notably. The third accelerator, Node.js, is used for scalable online apps like chats and booking websites since it processes info in real time the moment it is entered on the webpage by the users. Depending on the plan you pick, these accelerators might be available or may be an optional upgrade.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server plans shall enable you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js - 3 of the most powerful web accelerators on the market. Memcached is used to cache database and API calls and responses, so it could easily accelerate any script-driven site. You could use it for any Internet site created with WordPress or Joomla, for instance. Varnish is also referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy and it is a general-purpose caching platform which could be employed for any kind of sites. Based on the content, it can increase the performance of an Internet site up to 300%. Node.js is an advanced system employed to develop scalable Internet programs that process info in real time for instance booking portals. Its advantage is that different from comparable platforms, it processes information continuously and in small pieces as opposed to waiting for the user to submit one massive chunk of data. The accelerators could be enabled for any Internet site via the Hepsia CP and you shall be able to choose how many instances of every one of them will work and how much memory they will use.
Web Accelerators in VPS Servers
We offer Memcached, Node.js and Varnish with all VPS servers that are purchased with the Hepsia Control Panel. Your hosting server will also come with a few hundred MBs of dedicated memory for these accelerators and the particular amount would be determined by the package that you pick. Memcached is employed for script-driven sites since it caches database responses, thus reducing the number of queries a script sends to its database. It could be used for any script including WordPress or Joomla. Node.js is an efficient platform for developing web programs such as booking Internet sites and chats. The real-time interaction between users and a server is performed by processing little parts of data as soon any user enters anything on the site. In comparison, other platforms wait for customers to enter plenty of info before they process it, consequently they operate slower. Varnish is a multi-purpose accelerator that caches whole web pages and delivers them instead of the hosting server at a much faster rate. It is also often called an HTTP reverse proxy and it can easily speed up any type of site.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers
Memcached, Varnish and Node.js come with all dedicated servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting CP and depending on the plan that you choose, you will also have several gbs of dedicated memory for them. Memcached will minimize the server load by lowering the amount of queries that have to be handled because it caches database calls and responses. You shall be able to use it on every Internet site which uses an API or a database - for example, any site created with WordPress or Joomla. Varnish can improve the performance of any kind of Internet site by caching whole webpages the first time a visitor opens them. The accelerator delivers the web pages if the exact same visitor opens them later on and considering the fact that it does that much quicker than the server, the website visitor shall be able to look through your Internet site at least a few times faster. For this reason Varnish is oftentimes categorised as an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is an innovative platform that'll allow you to develop booking sites, web chats and other applications in which real-time server-user interaction is necessary. It processes the information in little pieces as the user fills different boxes and doesn't wait for all boxes to be filled and processed as one massive chunk of data, which makes Node.js considerably quicker than similar programs.
