Just what do web accelerators do? What can you do to be able to raise your website's load speed?
A web accelerator is a server-side application that speeds up a site. Such a piece of software can work in different ways depending upon the site content, but in the general situation all such apps cache content and deliver it instead of the web server. That is valid for both static and dynamic sites as the cached content can be simple text or database responses and the advantage of using a web accelerator is not just the faster loading website, but also the decreased overall load on the hosting server. That way, you'll be able to use a lower-end hosting package that'll also cost less while your site visitors will be able to still enjoy high browsing speeds. Few businesses supply web accelerators with their hosting packages and they often offer only 1, while we offer 3 different ones that'll allow you to improve the performance of any kind of website considerably.
Web Accelerators in Shared Website Hosting
We offer 3 of the most well-known web accelerators with our shared website hosting
solutions and based on what plan you will choose when you sign up, they may already be available or they may be an optional upgrade. Varnish is the most well-known one of them and it may be employed for any sort of Internet site. It caches the web pages the first time a visitor opens them and provides them at a faster speed compared to the hosting server every time that a website visitor opens them again. Memcached is employed to cache API and database calls, so it could boost the speed of dynamic sites such as online stores, forums or social networks. Node.js is employed for scalable web applications and it operates in real-time, which makes it ideal for server-side data processing - chats, browser games, booking portals, and many others. You'll be able to select just how much memory these accelerators will use and how many instances of each and every one shall run from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server
packages shall allow you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js - three of the most efficient web accelerators out there. Memcached is employed to cache database and API calls and responses, so it can easily increase the speed of any script-driven site. You may use it for any site designed with WordPress or Joomla™
, for instance. Varnish is also often called an HTTP reverse proxy and it is a general-purpose caching platform which can be employed for any kind of websites. Depending on the content, it can raise the performance of an Internet site approximately 300%. Node.js is a sophisticated system employed to develop scalable Internet applications which process information in real time for example booking portals. Its advantage is that different from similar platforms, it processes info consistently and in small bits rather than waiting for the user to submit one large chunk of data. The accelerators can be enabled for any site through the Hepsia Control Panel and you'll be able to pick how many instances of each one of them will work and how much memory they will use.
Web Accelerators in VPS Servers
All VPS servers
that are set up with the Hepsia CP come with Varnish, Memcached and Node.js already included and you'll have several hundred megabytes of dedicated memory for them by default. Varnish, that's also often called an HTTP reverse proxy, caches web pages the first time a site visitor opens them and provides them if that guest opens them again, hence the hosting server won't need to perform any action. As Varnish works considerably faster than any hosting server, a website using this accelerator shall operate several times quicker. Memcached is a platform which caches database calls and responses and it is used for WordPress, Joomla™
and other script-driven applications which store their content inside a database. Node.js is a powerful platform for developing scalable web programs. Any information on a site which employs Node.js is processed in real time, making it a superb choice for dining and accommodation booking Internet sites, web-based chats, browser games, etcetera.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers
In the event that you buy a dedicated server
from our firm and you choose Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel, you shall be able to use Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your Internet sites. All solutions come with several gigabytes of memory dedicated to these accelerators and the exact amount depends on the package deal you choose. Node.js is employed for scalable online apps including browser games or hotel booking and it processes the information right away as the user enters it, which makes it much quicker than very similar platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you employ it for a script-driven site, not only will the website speed up, but also the load on the hosting server will decline as there will be a lesser amount of database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it isn't limited to databases. Rather, it caches entire web pages once a website visitor opens them and delivers them instead of the hosting server every time the same visitor opens them later on. As Varnish processes web requests much faster than any server, the performance of a website using this accelerator could increase up to 300%.
