A web accelerator is a software that accelerates a website, usually by caching its content. There are different sorts of accelerators, but in the general case such applications cache static content or database responses and deliver them instead of the web server, as a consequence improving the performance of an Internet site greatly. The latter is possible because accelerator apps work faster than a web server and not only will an Internet site operate better, but the server load will also lessen, which will enable you to run heavy sites with less resources. We provide three web accelerators with our hosting packages, which will allow you to increase the speed of any kind of Internet site. In comparison, most web hosting businesses do not provide any web accelerators or offer just one, which limits your choice of web applications in case you want to use this kind of software.
Web Accelerators in Hosting
plans feature 3 web accelerators which you can use depending on the Internet sites that you'd like to run. Memcached is used to cache database or API calls and responses, which can greatly enhance the efficiency of dynamic Internet sites. Varnish is a popular HTTP accelerator that caches pages and provides them to the site visitors considerably quicker than the server after the first time they open them. Node.js is an event-driven platform used for scalable real-time applications for example booking websites. With respect to the hosting plan you select, these three applications might already be included or may be optional upgrades. In any case, you shall be able to select how many instances of each one of them shall be at your disposal and how much memory they should employ. These accelerators are provided only by several Internet hosting firms, including ours, and they could raise the speed of your web programs considerably.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers
You shall be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the Internet sites hosted in your semi-dedicated server
account in accordance with the nature of the website content. Memcached, for example, caches database requests, therefore it is an excellent option for any script app such as WordPress or Joomla™
. This way, the database hosting server will not have to process the exact same request if many users open a site with the same content. Varnish is similar, but it's a general-purpose accelerator as it caches any sort of content the first time a guest opens a site. In case that web page is opened again by the exact same website visitor, it will be provided by Varnish at a much higher speed compared to the web server. Employing this web accelerator will decrease the load created by your websites drastically. Last, but not least, Node.js shall permit you to build scalable web programs like hotel booking Internet sites or chats. Its advantage over similar platforms is that it does not wait for a customer to submit a large piece of data, but processes whatever the user is typing in real-time. The 3 web accelerators are available within the Hepsia CP and you'll be able to pick 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 case you get a VPS server
with the Hepsia CP, you shall be able to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your websites. All 3 accelerators are included in our packages by default and feature dedicated memory of several hundred MBs. Node.js is employed to build scalable applications where real-time interaction is needed - booking sites, online flash games, chats, and so on. It processes the information in smaller parts as the end user is entering it, thus it operates much faster than other platforms that wait for the users to enter one massive bit of info. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator that operates as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it when the same visitor opens the same website again, which can certainly speed any website several times because Varnish works more quickly than any server. Memcached is employed for caching API and database responses, therefore it's suitable for script-driven sites such as WordPress and Joomla™
. This web accelerator will be able to decrease the load on your web server because it'll reduce the amount of database queries that your websites make.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers
Memcached, Node.js and Varnish are available by default with all our dedicated servers
that are ordered with Hepsia as the hosting CP. These three web accelerators feature several gbs of dedicated memory and you may use them to speed up any sort of site. Memcached can drastically lessen the load on the web server if you have script-driven sites as it caches database responses, therefore it decreases the number of database queries that the server has to deal with. Node.js will enable you to develop scalable applications with real-time user-server interaction including chats or dining booking sites. Its advantage over very similar platforms is that it processes info the moment the user enters it, so all the data is managed swifter and in small pieces. Varnish caches whole Internet pages the first time a visitor opens them and provides them each and every time the same website visitor opens them again, which makes it a universal accelerator for any type of websites. Since it operates quicker than any server, it can speed up a site at least several times and due to this fact, Varnish is amongst the most popular web accelerators on the market.
