Learn what exactly web accelerators are and how you are able to take advantage of them to supercharge your website’s performance.
A web accelerator is a server-side app that accelerates a site. Such a piece of software may work in different ways based on the site content, but in the typical situation all such programs cache content and deliver it instead of the hosting server. That is valid for both dynamic and static sites because the cached content could be simple text or database responses and the advantage of employing a web accelerator isn't simply the faster loading site, but also the decreased overall load on the server. This way, you may use a lower-end hosting solution that'll also cost less while your visitors will be able to still enjoy superior browsing speeds. Several service providers supply web accelerators with their hosting deals and they typically offer just one, while we offer 3 different ones which will enable you to enhance the performance of any sort of website substantially.
Web Accelerators in Website Hosting
When you host your websites in a website hosting account from our company, you'll have 3 popular web accelerators to pick from if you'd like to enhance the sites' efficiency. Memcached is employed for database-driven sites and it caches the calls and requests between a site and its database, so it could reduce the load of such websites drastically. Varnish caches whole web pages the first time a visitor opens them and delivers them from there on if the same guest opens them again. It does that considerably faster than the hosting server, so it can easily raise the loading speed of any site as much as 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time applications that functions on the hosting server and not inside the visitor's browser. It is employed for holiday accommodation booking, chats and other programs where plenty of data should be processed in real time. The availability of the accelerators depends upon the hosting solution which you select - they may come by default or as an upgrade. In each case, you'll be able to include more instances or more memory for each one of them.
- Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated ServersThe Hepsia CP that is included with our semi-dedicated server plans will enable you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your Internet sites. Memcached is among the most widely used accelerators as it can increase the speed of any API or database-driven website by caching requests and responses, consequently the server will not need to process identical requests over and over again. The platform is perfect for Internet sites created with applications like Joomla™, Mambo or WordPress. Varnish is a powerful accelerator which caches any type of content and is also known as an HTTP reverse proxy. It caches webpages which are opened by a website visitor for the first time and provides them each and every time that very same guest opens them again. Varnish can easily speed up a site several times since it delivers content quicker than any server. Node.js is a platform used for scalable real-time programs like chats, browser games or social networks. It processes information in little bits the moment a user types anything, so it operates much faster than similar platforms in which users submit massive chunks of data that need time to be processed. You'll be able to pick the number of instances and the dedicated memory for each and every one of the three accelerators through your CP.
- Web Accelerators in VPS ServersIn case you obtain a VPS server with the Hepsia CP, you shall be able to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your Internet sites. All three accelerators are incorporated within our solutions by default and feature dedicated memory of a few hundred MBs. Node.js is used to create scalable applications where real-time interaction is needed - booking sites, online flash games, chats, and so forth. It processes the data in little bits as the user is entering it, as a result it functions much faster than other platforms which wait for the end users to submit one large part of information. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator which functions as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it in case the same website visitor opens the same webpage again, which can speed any website several times since Varnish functions faster than any server. Memcached is employed for caching API and database responses, consequently it is appropriate for script-driven sites like WordPress and Joomla™. This web accelerator can easily decrease the load on your web server as it will decrease the amount of database queries which your Internet sites make.
- Web Accelerators in Dedicated ServersIf you pick Hepsia as the hosting CP for your new dedicated server, you shall have Memcached, Varnish and Node.js readily available for speeding up your websites. Memcached can easily reduce the load on the web server by lowering the queries your script-driven Internet sites make as it caches database responses. This web accelerator is perfect for dynamic websites created with WordPress, Joomla™ and comparable scripts. Varnish, which is often called an HTTP reverse proxy, caches whole sites the first time a new website visitor opens them. It can be used to accelerate any sort of Internet site since it provides the cached content way quicker than the hosting server any time a customer opens the same webpage again. You'll be able to employ Node.js for online programs that demand real-time server-client interaction like online chats or booking sites. In contrast to other platforms that await the user to enter everything on a form, Node.js processes the information gradually as the user fills each box, so it operates considerably faster and more effectively. All dedicated server plans feature several gigabytes of memory dedicated to those 3 web accelerators.
