Know what precisely web accelerators are and just how you'll be able to make the most of them to enhance your site’s overall performance.
A web accelerator is an application which accelerates an Internet site, typically by caching its content. There are many sorts of accelerators, but in the common case this sort of programs cache static content or database responses and deliver them in lieu of the server, thus boosting the performance of an Internet site significantly. 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 decline, which will allow you to run heavy Internet sites with less resources. We offer 3 web accelerators with our hosting plans, which will enable you to speed up any type of website. In comparison, most Internet hosting firms do not provide any web accelerators or offer only one, which limits your choice of web apps in case you want to employ such software.
Web Accelerators in Cloud Hosting
Our cloud hosting plans come with 3 web accelerators that you could employ depending on the Internet sites which you'd like to run. Memcached is employed to cache database or API calls and responses, which can greatly enhance the efficiency of dynamic websites. Varnish is a popular HTTP accelerator that caches web pages and delivers them to the visitors considerably quicker than the server after the first time they open them. Node.js is an event-driven platform used for scalable real-time programs for example booking sites. Depending on the web hosting plan you pick, these 3 programs might already be included or might be optional upgrades. In any case, you shall be able to pick how many instances of each of them will be at your disposal and how much memory they should employ. These accelerators are provided only by several hosting companies, including ours, and they could raise the speed of your web apps significantly.
- Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated HostingThe Hepsia CP that is provided with our semi-dedicated hosting solutions shall allow you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your sites. Memcached is among the most well-known accelerators because it can speed up any API or database-driven website by caching requests and responses, thus the hosting server will not have to process identical requests over and over again. The platform is perfect for websites created with applications such as Joomla™, Mambo or WordPress. Varnish is a powerful accelerator that caches any kind of content and is also frequently called an HTTP reverse proxy. It caches pages which are opened by a site visitor for the first time and provides them each time that same site visitor opens them again. Varnish can accelerate a site several times as it delivers content quicker than any web server. Node.js is a platform used for scalable real-time programs such as chats, Internet browser games or social networks. It processes data in smaller pieces as soon as a user enters anything, as a result it functions considerably faster than similar platforms in which users submit sizeable pieces of data which require time to be processed. You can select the number of instances and the dedicated memory for every one of the three accelerators using your Control Panel.
- Web Accelerators in VPSIn case you obtain a virtual private server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your Internet sites. All 3 accelerators are incorporated in our solutions by default and feature dedicated memory of a few hundred MBs. Node.js is employed to create scalable programs where real-time interaction is necessary - booking Internet sites, online games, chats, and so forth. It processes the data in little pieces as the end user is entering it, as a result it functions much faster than other platforms that wait for the end users to submit one massive part of info. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator which functions as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it if the same visitor opens the same webpage again, which can easily speed any Internet site several times since Varnish functions more quickly than any web server. Memcached is employed for caching API and database responses, so it is appropriate for script-driven Internet sites like WordPress and Joomla™. This web accelerator will be able to reduce the load on your server as it will reduce the amount of database queries your websites make.
- Web Accelerators in Dedicated HostingMemcached, Varnish and Node.js are offered with all dedicated servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and depending on the plan which you opt for, you'll also have several gigabytes of dedicated memory for them. Memcached can minimize the hosting server load by lowering the amount of queries that need to be dealt with because it caches database calls and responses. You'll be able to use it on every website which uses an API or a database - for example, any site developed with WordPress or Joomla™. Varnish can easily improve the performance of any type of Internet site by caching whole webpages the first time a visitor opens them. The accelerator delivers the web pages if the exact same visitor opens them afterwards and since it does that considerably quicker than the server, the visitor shall be able to browse your website at least several times faster. This is why Varnish is occasionally called an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is a sophisticated platform which will permit you to create booking sites, web chats and other programs in which real-time server-user interaction is needed. It processes the info in tiny parts as the user fills different boxes and does not wait for all boxes to be filled and processed as one big piece of info, which makes Node.js considerably quicker than similar applications.
