A web accelerator is a software which speeds up an Internet site, normally by caching its content. There are various types of accelerators, but in the common case this kind of programs cache static content or database responses and provide them in place of the hosting server, thus boosting the performance of a website greatly. The latter is achievable because accelerator applications work faster than a server and not only will a site work better, but the server load shall also decrease, which will enable you to run heavy websites with less system resources. We offer three web accelerators with our hosting solutions, which will permit you to increase the speed of any kind of Internet site. In comparison, most website hosting companies don't provide any web accelerators or provide only one, which limits your choice of web applications if you would like to use this type of software.
Web Accelerators in Cloud Hosting
If you get one of our cloud hosting
solutions, you will have 3 popular web accelerators at your disposal and you'll be able to access them directly through the Hepsia Control Panel that is included with our plans. Varnish is one of the most popular ones and it could considerably accelerate any site as it caches the web pages a visitor opens for the first time and provides them each time that guest opens them again. Since Varnish operates way quicker than any hosting server, the loading speed of any website using the accelerator will raise substantially. Memcached is used to cache database and API calls and responses between a website visitor and a server, so it is comparable to Varnish, but is employed largely for database-driven websites. Because the site shall connect to its database significantly less, the overall hosting server load shall be decreased notably. The third accelerator, Node.js, is used for scalable online programs including chats and booking sites as it processes data in real time the moment it is entered on the webpage by the users. Depending on the plan you select, these accelerators may be available or might be an optional upgrade.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you select one of our semi-dedicated server
packages, you shall be able to work with Varnish, Memcached and Node.js - three efficient web accelerators. Varnish is a multi-purpose program that caches pages the first time a site visitor opens them and delivers them instead of the hosting server if the guest opens them again up to 300% more quickly. Memcached caches API and database calls and responses in order that the hosting server doesn't need to process each request, which makes it perfect for database-driven Internet sites, such as ones designed with Joomla™
or WordPress. Node.js is used to create web apps which operate in real-time like chats or accommodation booking portals and it processes each bit of info the moment the user types it as opposed to waiting for sizeable portions of data to be accumulated. The Hepsia CP which is included with our semi-dedicated packages shall permit you to choose how many instances of each accelerator shall work at a time and what amount of memory they'll use.
Web Accelerators in VPS Servers
All VPS servers
which are incorporated with the Hepsia CP come with Varnish, Memcached and Node.js already included and you'll receive several hundred megabytes of dedicated memory for them by default. Varnish, which is also known as an HTTP reverse proxy, caches webpages the first time a guest opens them and provides them if that visitor opens them again, therefore the hosting server shall not need to perform any action. As Varnish operates considerably faster than any server, an Internet site employing this accelerator shall function several times swifter. Memcached is a platform that caches database calls and responses and it's employed for WordPress, Joomla™
and other script-driven programs which store their content in a database. Node.js is an effective platform for building scalable web applications. Any data on a website that employs Node.js is processed in real time, which makes it an excellent choice for dining and accommodation booking Internet sites, web-based chats, Internet browser games, etcetera.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers
If you buy a dedicated server
from our firm and you select Hepsia as the hosting CP, you'll be able to use Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your Internet sites. All solutions feature several gigabytes of memory dedicated to these accelerators and the actual amount depends on the plan you choose. Node.js is employed for scalable online programs including browser games or hotel booking and it processes the data right away as the client enters it, which makes it considerably faster than similar platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you employ it for a script-driven site, not simply will the website work faster, but also the load on the hosting server will reduce because there will be fewer database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it isn't limited to databases. Instead, it caches whole pages once a visitor opens them and provides them instead of the server each time the same visitor opens them later. Because Varnish processes web requests considerably faster than any hosting server, the overall performance of a website using this accelerator could increase up to 300%.
