A web accelerator is a software that speeds up an Internet site, typically by caching its content. There are many types of accelerators, but in the common case such programs cache static content or database responses and provide them in place of the web server, as a consequence boosting the performance of a site greatly. The latter is possible because accelerator applications work faster than a web server and not simply will an Internet site work better, but the server load will also decrease, which will permit you to run heavy sites with less system resources. We provide three web accelerators with our hosting solutions, which will allow you to speed up any kind of Internet site. In comparison, most website hosting service providers do not provide any web accelerators or offer only 1, which limits your choice of web apps in the event that you would like to use this kind of software.
Web Accelerators in Shared Web Hosting
When you get one of our shared web hosting
plans, you shall have three well-known web accelerators at your disposal and you shall be able to access them directly through the Hepsia Control Panel that is included with our packages. Varnish is one of the most popular ones and it could significantly speed up any Internet site because it caches the web pages that a visitor opens for the first time and provides them every time that guest opens them again. Since Varnish functions way quicker than any server, the loading speed of any website using the accelerator shall raise substantially. Memcached is employed to cache database and API calls and responses between a visitor and a server, so it's similar to Varnish, but is employed largely for database-driven websites. Since the site shall connect to its database much less, the overall server load shall be decreased substantially. The third accelerator, Node.js, is used for scalable online applications such as chats and booking sites because it processes info in real time as soon as it is entered on the site by the users. Depending on the plan you choose, these accelerators might be available or might be an optional upgrade.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You shall be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the Internet sites hosted inside your semi-dedicated hosting
account in accordance with the nature of the website content. Memcached, for instance, caches database requests, therefore it is an excellent option for any script program such as WordPress or Joomla™
. That way, the database hosting server shall not have to process the exact same request if a number of users open a website with the same content. Varnish is comparable, but it's a general-purpose accelerator since it caches any type of content the first time a guest opens a page. If that webpage is opened again by the very same visitor, it'll be delivered by Varnish at a much better speed compared to the hosting server. Using this web accelerator shall minimize the load produced by your sites tremendously. Last, but not least, Node.js will permit you to build scalable web applications such as hotel booking Internet sites or chats. Its advantage over similar platforms is that it doesn't wait for a client to submit a big piece of data, but processes whatever the client is inputting in real-time. The three web accelerators are available inside the Hepsia CP and you shall be able to choose how many instances of each one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they can use.
Web Accelerators in VPS Web Hosting
All virtual private servers
that are incorporated with the Hepsia Control Panel come with Varnish, Memcached and Node.js already included and you will have several hundred MBs of dedicated memory for them by default. Varnish, that is also often called an HTTP reverse proxy, caches webpages the first time a site visitor opens them and delivers them if that guest opens them again, hence the hosting server won't need to perform any action. Since Varnish works much faster than any web server, an Internet site using this accelerator shall function several times quicker. Memcached is a platform which caches database calls and responses and it is used for WordPress, Joomla™
and other script-driven programs which store their content inside a database. Node.js is a highly effective platform for building scalable web applications. Any information on a site which uses Node.js is processed right away, which makes it an excellent choice for dining and accommodation booking websites, web-based chats, Internet browser games, and so forth.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers Hosting
In the event that you buy a dedicated server
from our company and you opt for Hepsia as the hosting CP, you shall be able to use Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your sites. All packages come with several gigabytes of memory dedicated to these accelerators and the actual amount depends on the package deal you select. Node.js is employed for scalable online apps including browser games or hotel booking and it processes the data immediately as the user enters it, which makes it considerably quicker than similar platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you employ it for a script-driven website, not only will the Internet site speed up, but also the load on the web server will minimize as there shall be a lesser amount of database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it is not limited to databases. Instead, it caches whole websites once a website visitor opens them and delivers them instead of the hosting server whenever the same visitor opens them later. Due to the fact that Varnish processes web requests much faster than any hosting server, the efficiency of an Internet site using this accelerator could increase around 300%.
