Know what exactly web accelerators are and exactly how you'll be able to make the most of them to supercharge your site’s efficiency.
A web accelerator is a server-side program that accelerates an Internet site. Such a piece of software can operate in different ways depending on the site content, but in the typical case all such applications cache content and deliver it instead of the hosting server. This is valid for both static and dynamic websites as the cached content could be simple text or database responses and the advantage of using a web accelerator isn't only the faster loading website, but also the smaller overall load on the server. That way, you'll be able to use a lower-end hosting solution that will also cost less while your website visitors can still enjoy superior browsing speeds. Several businesses provide web accelerators with their hosting deals and they usually offer only one, while we offer three different ones which will allow you to improve the performance of any sort of Internet site significantly.
Web Accelerators in Website Hosting
If you get one of our website hosting
plans, you'll have three widely used web accelerators at your disposal and you will be able to access them directly using the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with our packages. Varnish is one of the most widely used ones and it could significantly speed up any Internet site since it caches the web pages that a visitor opens for the first time and delivers them each time that visitor opens them again. Because Varnish functions much faster than any web server, the loading speed of any Internet site using the accelerator shall increase noticeably. Memcached is employed to cache database and API calls and responses between an Internet site visitor and a hosting server, so it is similar to Varnish, but is used predominantly for database-driven sites. Since the site shall connect to its database significantly less, the overall server load will be minimized notably. The third accelerator, Node.js, is used for scalable online apps such as chats and booking websites since it processes data in real time as soon as it is entered on the webpage by the users. Depending on the plan you choose, these accelerators could be available or could be an optional upgrade.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated hosting
plans shall permit you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js - 3 of the most effective web accelerators on the market. Memcached is used to cache database and API calls and responses, therefore it could easily increase the speed of any script-driven website. You could use it for any Internet site created with WordPress or Joomla™
, for instance. Varnish is also known as an HTTP reverse proxy and it's a general-purpose caching platform which can be employed for any kind of websites. With regards to the content, it could increase the performance of a site as much as 300%. Node.js is an advanced system employed to build scalable Internet programs that process data in real time such as booking portals. Its advantage is that unlike similar platforms, it processes information consistently and in small bits as opposed to waiting for the user to submit one sizeable chunk of data. The accelerators could be enabled for any Internet site via the Hepsia CP and you shall be able to choose how many instances of each of them shall work and how much memory they shall use.
Web Accelerators in VPS
We provide Memcached, Node.js and Varnish with all virtual private servers
which are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. Your hosting server shall also feature several hundred MBs of dedicated memory for these accelerators and the particular amount depends on the package deal that you choose. Memcached is employed for script-driven Internet sites since it caches database responses, thus lowering the amount of queries that a script sends to its database. It could be employed for any script including WordPress or Joomla™
. Node.js is a powerful platform for developing web programs such as booking websites and chats. The real-time interaction between end users and a hosting server is carried out by processing little pieces of information as soon any user inputs anything on the website. In contrast, other platforms wait for customers to enter a whole lot of information before they process it, therefore they operate slower. Varnish is a multi-purpose accelerator which caches whole web pages and provides them instead of the server at a faster rate. It's also often called an HTTP reverse proxy and it can effortlessly speed up any type of website.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Hosting
In the event that you choose Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel for your new dedicated server, you shall have Memcached, Varnish and Node.js available for increasing the speed of your Internet sites. Memcached can reduce the load on the server by lowering the queries your script-driven sites make as it caches database responses. This web accelerator is ideal for dynamic sites created with WordPress, Joomla™
and very similar scripts. Varnish, which is often called an HTTP reverse proxy, caches entire webpages the first time a new guest opens them. It could be employed to speed up any sort of Internet site because it provides the cached content way quicker than the hosting server each time a guest opens the same page again. You'll be able to use Node.js for online programs which require real-time server-client interaction including online chats or booking Internet sites. Different from other platforms which wait for the user to fill everything on a form, Node.js processes the information piece by piece as the user fills each box, so it functions faster and more efficiently. All dedicated server
solutions include several gigabytes of memory dedicated to these three web accelerators.
