A web accelerator is a server-side program which quickens an Internet site. Such a piece of software may work in different ways based on the website content, but in the typical situation all such apps cache content and deliver it instead of the hosting server. That is valid for both dynamic and static sites since the cached content can be simple text or database responses and the advantage of employing a web accelerator isn't simply the faster loading website, but also the minimized overall load on the hosting server. This way, you may employ a lower-end hosting plan that'll also cost less while your visitors can still enjoy high browsing speeds. Handful of companies provide web accelerators with their hosting deals and they frequently offer only one, while we offer three different ones which will permit you to boost the performance of any kind of site noticeably.
Web Accelerators in Cloud Hosting
In case you buy one of our cloud hosting plans, you'll 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 plans. Varnish is one of the most widely used ones and it can tremendously increase the speed of any site since it caches the web pages a website visitor opens for the first time and provides them each time that website visitor opens them again. Because Varnish works considerably faster than any server, the loading speed of any website using the accelerator will increase significantly. Memcached is used to cache database and API calls and responses between a site visitor and a web server, so it is similar to Varnish, but is employed primarily for database-driven sites. Since the site will connect to its database a lot less, the overall web server load will be minimized notably. The last accelerator, Node.js, is used for scalable online programs including chats and booking sites since it processes information in real time as soon as it is entered on the webpage by the users. Based on the plan you choose, these accelerators might be available or could 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 site content. Memcached, for example, caches database requests, therefore it's an excellent choice for any script app like WordPress or Joomla. This way, the database web server won't need to process the very same request if many users open a page with the same content. Varnish is similar, but it is a general-purpose accelerator because it caches any sort of content the first time a guest opens an Internet site. If this page is opened again by the very same website visitor, it'll be provided by Varnish at a much better speed compared to the server. Using this web accelerator can reduce the load created by your sites considerably. Last, but not least, Node.js shall permit you to build scalable web apps like hotel booking Internet sites or chats. Its advantage over similar platforms is that it doesn't wait for a customer to submit a large piece of information, but processes whatever the customer is entering in real-time. The 3 web accelerators are available inside the Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to select how many instances of each one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they may employ.
Web Accelerators in VPS
We offer Memcached, Node.js and Varnish with all virtual private servers which are obtained with the Hepsia CP. Your web server will also come with a few hundred MBs of dedicated memory for these accelerators and the particular amount would depend on the plan that you choose. Memcached is used for script-driven Internet sites since it caches database responses, consequently lowering the amount of queries that a script sends to its database. It may be used for any script such as WordPress or Joomla. Node.js is an effective platform for developing web programs including booking websites and chats. The real-time interaction between users and a server is conducted by processing smaller bits of information as soon any user enters anything on the site. In contrast, other platforms await users to enter loads of info before they process it, thus they function slowly. Varnish is a multi-purpose accelerator that caches whole webpages and provides them instead of the server at a considerably faster rate. It's also often called an HTTP reverse proxy and it can easily speed up any sort of site.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Hosting
In case you order a dedicated server from our company and you opt for Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel, you'll be able to use Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your Internet sites. All packages come with several gigabytes of memory dedicated to those accelerators and the actual amount depends on the package you select. Node.js is used for scalable online applications such as browser games or hotel booking and it processes the info right away as the client enters it, which makes it considerably faster than very similar platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you use it for a script-driven Internet site, not only will the Internet site speed up, but also the load on the web server will reduce as there shall be less database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it is not limited to databases. Rather, it caches entire pages once a visitor opens them and delivers them instead of the hosting server each and every time the same visitor opens them later. As Varnish processes web requests much faster than any server, the efficiency of an Internet site using this accelerator could increase up to 300%.
