A web accelerator is a server-side app that accelerates an Internet site. Such a piece of software may operate in different ways based on the site content, but in the typical situation all such applications cache content and deliver it instead of the server. That's valid for both dynamic and static sites since the cached content may be simple text or database responses and the benefit of using a web accelerator isn't simply the faster loading website, but also the smaller overall load on the web server. That way, you'll be able to employ a lower-end hosting package that will also cost less while your visitors will be able to still enjoy fast browsing speeds. Handful of service providers provide web accelerators with their hosting plans and they often offer only 1, while we offer 3 different ones which will enable you to enhance the performance of any sort of site substantially.
Web Accelerators in Shared Hosting
In case you host your websites in a shared hosting account from our firm, you will have three popular web accelerators to choose from if you would like to improve the sites' functionality. Memcached is used for database-driven Internet sites and it caches the calls and requests between a website and its database, so it can easily decrease the load of such sites substantially. Varnish caches entire web pages the first time a site visitor opens them and delivers them from there on if the same visitor opens them again. It does that faster than the web server, so it can easily boost the loading speed of any site nearly 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time programs which functions on the web server and not in the visitor's Internet browser. It's employed for accommodation booking, chats and other apps where plenty of data should be processed in real time. The availability of those accelerators depends on the hosting solution which you pick - they may come by default or as an upgrade. In both cases, you'll be able to include more instances or more memory for each of them.
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 site content. Memcached, for instance, caches database requests, therefore it's a superb choice for any script app like WordPress or Joomla. This way, the database server will not have to process the very same request if multiple users open a webpage with the same content. Varnish is comparable, but it's a general-purpose accelerator because it caches any type of content the first time a visitor opens an Internet site. If that web page is opened again by the same guest, it'll be provided by Varnish at a greater speed compared to the web server. Employing this web accelerator shall lessen the load produced by your Internet sites tremendously. Last, but not least, Node.js shall allow you to produce scalable web programs like hotel booking Internet sites or chats. Its advantage over comparable platforms is that it doesn't wait for a user to submit a big piece of information, but processes whatever the customer is typing in real-time. The 3 web accelerators are available in the Hepsia CP and you'll be able to choose how many instances of each one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they'll use.
Web Accelerators in VPS Servers
We provide Memcached, Node.js and Varnish with all VPS servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. Your hosting server will also feature a few hundred MBs of dedicated memory for these accelerators and the exact amount would be determined by the package deal that you select. Memcached is employed for script-driven sites as it caches database responses, thus lowering the amount of queries which a script sends to its database. It could be used for any script including WordPress or Joomla. Node.js is a highly effective platform for developing web applications like booking websites and chats. The real-time interaction between end users and a server is done by processing small pieces of data as soon any user enters anything on the webpage. By comparison, other platforms wait for customers to enter a whole lot of data before they process it, thus they work more slowly. Varnish is a multi-purpose accelerator which caches entire webpages and provides them instead of the hosting server at a faster rate. It's also known as an HTTP reverse proxy and it can effortlessly speed up any kind of site.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers
Memcached, Node.js and Varnish are provided by default with all our dedicated servers that are ordered with Hepsia as the Internet hosting Control Panel. These three web accelerators feature several gigabytes of dedicated memory and you could use them to speed up any kind of site. Memcached can drastically reduce the load on the web server if you have script-driven sites as it caches database responses, so it minimizes the number of database queries the web server has to take care of. Node.js will enable you to develop scalable programs with real-time user-server interaction including chats or dining booking sites. Its advantage over very similar platforms is that it processes data as soon as the user enters it, so all the info is handled quicker and in small parts. Varnish caches whole Internet pages the first time a site visitor opens them and delivers them each and every time the same guest opens them again, which makes it a universal accelerator for any kind of Internet sites. Because it operates quicker than any web server, it could speed up a website at least several times and due to this fact, Varnish is one of the most popular web accelerators around.
