A web accelerator is a server-side program that accelerates a site. Such a piece of software can operate in different ways depending upon the website content, but in the typical situation all such programs cache content and deliver it instead of the web server. That is valid for both dynamic and static sites as the cached content can be simple text or database responses and the reward of employing a web accelerator is not simply the faster loading Internet site, but also the lessened overall load on the server. That way, you may employ a lower-end hosting plan that will also cost less while your site visitors can still enjoy high browsing speeds. Few service providers provide web accelerators with their hosting packages and they often offer just 1, while we offer 3 different ones which will enable you to enhance the performance of any kind of website tremendously.
Web Accelerators in Website Hosting
We provide three of the most popular web accelerators with our website hosting
solutions and based upon what plan you'll select when you sign up, they might already be available or they may be an optional upgrade. Varnish is the most widely used one of them and it may be used for any type of site. It caches the web pages the first time a visitor opens them and provides them at a much faster speed compared to the web server each time that a visitor opens them again. Memcached is used to cache API and database calls, so it could boost the speed of dynamic websites including online stores, forums or social networks. Node.js is employed for scalable web apps and it operates in real-time, which makes it excellent for server-side data processing - chats, browser games, booking portals, etcetera. You shall be able to pick the amount of memory these accelerators will use and how many instances of each and every one will run from your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You shall be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the sites hosted in your semi-dedicated hosting
account in accordance with the nature of the site content. Memcached, for example, caches database requests, so it is an excellent option for any script app such as WordPress or Joomla™
. This way, the database hosting server shall not have to process the exact same request if a number of users open a site with the same content. Varnish is very similar, but it is a general-purpose accelerator as it caches any kind of content the first time a guest opens a page. In case that page is opened again by the same guest, it shall be provided by Varnish at a much better speed compared to the server. Employing this web accelerator can lessen the load produced by your sites drastically. Last, but not least, Node.js shall permit you to build scalable web applications like hotel booking websites or chats. Its advantage over very similar platforms is that it does not wait for a client to submit a sizable piece of info, but processes whatever the client is typing in real-time. The 3 web accelerators are available in the Hepsia Control Panel and you'll be able to pick how many instances of each one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they'll use.
Web Accelerators in VPS Hosting
All virtual private servers
that are set up with the Hepsia Control Panel come with Varnish, Memcached and Node.js already included and you shall receive several hundred MBs of dedicated memory for them by default. Varnish, which is also known as an HTTP reverse proxy, caches pages the first time a visitor opens them and delivers them if that guest opens them again, so the server shall not have to perform any action. Since Varnish works faster than any web server, an Internet site employing this accelerator shall function several times faster. Memcached is a platform that caches database calls and responses and it is employed for WordPress, Joomla™
and other script-driven applications that store their content inside a database. Node.js is a powerful platform for building scalable web apps. Any info on a site which uses Node.js is processed right away, making it a fantastic choice for dining and accommodation booking websites, web-based chats, Internet browser games, and so forth.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Web Hosting
Memcached, Varnish and Node.js are provided with all dedicated servers
ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and in accordance with the plan you choose, you shall also have several gbs of dedicated memory for them. Memcached can decrease the server load by lowering the amount of queries which have to be taken care of since it caches database calls and responses. You shall be able to use it on any site that uses an API or a database - for example, any site created with WordPress or Joomla™
. Varnish could enhance the performance of any kind of site by caching whole webpages the first time a guest opens them. The accelerator provides the pages if the exact same visitor opens them later and since it does that way quicker than the server, the visitor shall be able to browse your Internet site at least a few times faster. That is why Varnish is oftentimes categorised as an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is an innovative platform which will enable you to create booking websites, web chats and other programs in which real-time server-user interaction is needed. It processes the information in little parts as the client fills different boxes and doesn't wait for all boxes to be filled and processed as one big chunk of information, which makes Node.js considerably quicker than similar programs.
