Learn what precisely web accelerators are and in what ways you'll be able to make the most of them to supercharge your site’s overall performance.
A web accelerator is an application that quickens a site, usually by caching its content. There are many types of accelerators, but in the typical case such applications cache static content or database responses and provide them in place of the hosting server, as a consequence enhancing the performance of an Internet site noticeably. The latter can be done because accelerator programs work faster than a web server and not only will a site operate better, but the server load will also minimize, which will enable you to run heavy websites with less resources. We offer three web accelerators with our hosting plans, which will allow you to accelerate any kind of Internet site. In comparison, most hosting businesses don't provide any web accelerators or offer only one, which limits your choice of web apps in the event that you'd like to use such software.
Web Accelerators in Cloud Website Hosting
Our cloud website hosting
solutions feature 3 web accelerators which you will be able to employ depending on the websites that you would like to run. Memcached is used to cache database or API calls and responses, which could significantly improve the functionality of dynamic sites. Varnish is a popular HTTP accelerator which caches web pages and delivers them to the visitors considerably faster than the hosting server after the first time they open them. Node.js is an event-driven platform used for scalable real-time programs including booking sites. Based on the hosting solution you select, these 3 programs might already be included or may be optional upgrades. In any case, you'll be able to choose how many instances of each of them shall be at your disposal and how much memory they should employ. These accelerators are offered only by a handful of web hosting firms, including ours, and they can easily increase the speed of your web programs significantly.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers
The Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with our semi-dedicated server
plans shall allow you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your sites. Memcached is among the most widely used accelerators as it can speed up any API or database-driven site by caching requests and responses, as a result the hosting server will not need to process identical requests again and again. The platform is perfect for sites developed with applications such as Joomla™
, Mambo or WordPress. Varnish is a highly effective accelerator that caches any kind of content and is also known as an HTTP reverse proxy. It caches webpages which are opened by a website visitor for the first time and delivers them each and every time that same visitor opens them again. Varnish can easily accelerate an Internet site several times as it delivers content quicker than any hosting server. Node.js is a platform employed for scalable real-time applications such as chats, web browser games or social networks. It processes information in small pieces as soon as a user enters anything, so it operates much faster than similar platforms where users submit massive chunks of info that need time to be processed. You could select the number of instances and the dedicated memory for every one of the 3 accelerators through your Control Panel.
Web Accelerators in VPS Servers
All VPS servers
that are set up with the Hepsia Control Panel come with Varnish, Memcached and Node.js already included and you shall have several hundred MBs of dedicated memory for them by default. Varnish, which is also known as an HTTP reverse proxy, caches web pages the first time a guest opens them and provides them when that visitor opens them again, therefore the hosting server shall not have to perform any action. Since Varnish operates much faster than any web server, a site employing this accelerator shall work several times quicker. Memcached is a platform that caches database calls and responses and it's used for WordPress, Joomla™
and other script-driven apps that store their content inside a database. Node.js is an efficient platform for developing scalable web applications. Any data on a website which employs Node.js is processed in real time, which makes it a great choice for dining and accommodation booking Internet sites, web-based chats, Internet browser games, etc.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers
Memcached, Varnish and Node.js come with all dedicated servers
ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and based on the package you opt for, you shall also have several gbs of dedicated memory for them. Memcached can reduce the web server load by lowering the number of queries which need to be addressed because it caches database calls and responses. You'll be able to use it on every website which uses an API or a database - as an illustration, any site developed with WordPress or Joomla™
. Varnish can easily enhance the performance of any sort of website by caching whole pages the first time a visitor opens them. The accelerator delivers the web pages if the exact same visitor opens them later on and given that it does that considerably quicker than the hosting server, the website visitor shall be able to browse your Internet site at least a couple of times faster. For this reason Varnish is oftentimes referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is a sophisticated platform which will enable you to develop booking sites, web chats and other programs where real-time server-user interaction is required. It processes the information in small parts as the user fills different boxes and does not wait for all boxes to be filled and processed as one massive piece of info, which makes Node.js way quicker than similar programs.
