A web accelerator is a server-side app which speeds up a website. Such a piece of software can work in different ways depending upon the website content, but in the typical case all such applications cache content and deliver it instead of the hosting server. That's valid for both dynamic and static Internet sites as the cached content could be simple text or database responses and the reward of using a web accelerator is not just the faster loading website, but also the minimized overall load on the server. That way, you may employ a lower-end hosting package that'll also cost less while your visitors could still enjoy fast browsing speeds. Several businesses provide web accelerators with their hosting packages and they typically offer only one, while we offer three different ones which will permit you to enhance the performance of any type of Internet site considerably.
Web Accelerators in Cloud Hosting
When you purchase one of our cloud hosting
packages, you'll have 3 well-known web accelerators at your disposal and you will be able to access them directly through the Hepsia Control Panel that is included with our plans. Varnish is one of the most popular ones and it could considerably accelerate any Internet site because it caches the web pages a site visitor opens for the first time and delivers them each time that visitor opens them again. Given that Varnish functions way quicker than any server, the loading speed of any site using the accelerator shall grow substantially. Memcached is used to cache database and API calls and responses between a website visitor and a web server, so it's similar to Varnish, but is employed predominantly for database-driven sites. Since the site will connect to its database way less, the overall hosting server load will be decreased significantly. The 3rd accelerator, Node.js, is employed for scalable online applications such as chats and booking websites since it processes information in real time the instant it is entered on the website by the users. Depending on the package you choose, these accelerators may be available or could be an optional upgrade.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers
You'll be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the Internet sites hosted in your semi-dedicated server
account based on the nature of the site content. Memcached, for example, caches database requests, therefore it is a fantastic option for any script application like WordPress or Joomla™
. That way, the database web server will not need to process exactly the same request if multiple users open a webpage with the same content. Varnish is comparable, but it is a general-purpose accelerator as it caches any type of content the first time a guest opens a page. In case that web page is opened again by the exact same website visitor, it'll be delivered by Varnish at a much higher speed compared to the server. Employing this web accelerator will reduce the load generated by your websites substantially. Last, but not least, Node.js will permit you to create scalable web apps such as hotel booking sites or chats. Its advantage over comparable platforms is that it doesn't wait for a client to submit a sizable piece of info, but processes whatever the user is entering in real-time. The 3 web accelerators are available within the Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to select how many instances of each and every one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they can employ.
Web Accelerators in VPS Servers
All VPS servers
which are set up with the Hepsia CP come with Varnish, Memcached and Node.js already included and you'll have several hundred megabytes of dedicated memory for them by default. Varnish, which is also often called an HTTP reverse proxy, caches pages the first time a visitor opens them and delivers them in case that visitor opens them again, therefore the server shall not need to perform any action. Since Varnish functions considerably faster than any hosting server, an Internet site employing this accelerator will operate several times faster. Memcached is a platform that caches database calls and responses and it's employed for WordPress, Joomla™
and other script-driven applications which store their content in a database. Node.js is an efficient platform for developing scalable web programs. Any information on a site that uses Node.js is processed instantly, which makes it a great choice for dining and accommodation booking websites, web-based chats, Internet browser games, and so on.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers
In case 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 Internet sites. Memcached can easily lessen the load on the hosting server by lowering the queries your script-driven websites make as it caches database responses. This web accelerator is ideal for dynamic sites designed with WordPress, Joomla™
and very similar scripts. Varnish, which is known as an HTTP reverse proxy, caches whole websites the first time a new guest opens them. It can be used to speed up any sort of site since it delivers the cached content way quicker than the web server each time a website visitor opens the same webpage again. You'll be able to employ Node.js for online apps that require real-time server-client interaction like online chats or booking Internet sites. In contrast to other platforms which await the user to fill everything on a form, Node.js processes the info gradually as the user fills each box, so it functions faster and more efficiently. All dedicated server
solutions come with several gigabytes of memory dedicated to these 3 web accelerators.
