Understand what precisely web accelerators are and how you'll be able to benefit from them to supercharge your site’s performance.
A web accelerator is a software application which accelerates an Internet site generally by caching content and delivering it instead of the web server. Such applications may be employed for both static and dynamic websites because there are different accelerators which can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The main advantage of using a web accelerator is that a given Internet site will perform significantly faster without using more system resources. On the contrary, such a website will need a lesser amount of resources to function as the web accelerator will take care of most requests rather than the hosting server. In contrast to many businesses which do not offer web accelerators with their plans or offer only one, we offer 3 different ones which will permit you to speed up your Internet sites regardless of their type or content.
Web Accelerators in Website Hosting
When you acquire one of our website hosting packages, you'll have 3 popular web accelerators at your disposal and you will be able to access them directly through the Hepsia CP that comes with our packages. Varnish is one of the most popular ones and it can tremendously speed up any Internet site as it caches the pages a visitor opens for the first time and delivers them every time that guest opens them again. Given that Varnish works noticeably faster than any web server, the loading speed of any Internet site using the accelerator will increase significantly. Memcached is employed to cache database and API calls and responses between a visitor and a server, so it's similar to Varnish, but is used largely for database-driven Internet sites. Considering that the Internet site shall connect to its database significantly less, the overall web server load will be minimized substantially. The 3rd accelerator, Node.js, is employed for scalable online apps such as chats and booking websites since it processes data in real time as soon as it is entered on the site by the users. Based on the plan you select, these accelerators could be available or might be an optional upgrade.
- Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated ServersIf you pick one of our semi-dedicated server plans, you shall be able to employ Varnish, Memcached and Node.js - three powerful web accelerators. Varnish is a multi-purpose application which caches websites the first time a website visitor opens them and provides them instead of the server if the guest opens them again approximately 300% more quickly. Memcached caches API and database calls and responses to ensure the web server does not need to process every request, that makes it ideal for database-driven sites, such as ones built with Joomla™ or WordPress. Node.js is used to build web applications that operate in real-time including chats or accommodation booking sites and it processes each and every bit of information the moment the user enters it rather than waiting for sizeable pieces of info to be accumulated. The Hepsia CP that is included with our semi-dedicated solutions shall enable you to select how many instances of each accelerator shall work at a time and how much memory they will use.
- Web Accelerators in VPS ServersIn the event that you obtain a VPS server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your sites. All three accelerators are included inside our solutions by default and come with dedicated memory of several hundred megabytes. Node.js is used to build scalable programs where real-time interaction is needed - booking Internet sites, online games, chats, etcetera. It processes the data in small bits as the end user is entering it, as a result it operates much faster than other platforms which wait for the users to submit one big piece of info. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator which operates as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it in case the same site visitor opens the same website again, which can easily speed any site several times since Varnish functions a lot quicker than any hosting server. Memcached is used for caching API and database responses, consequently it's ideal for script-driven websites like WordPress and Joomla™. This web accelerator can lessen the load on your hosting server since it shall decrease the amount of database queries that your sites make.
- Web Accelerators in Dedicated ServersMemcached, Node.js and Varnish are available by default with all our dedicated servers that are ordered with Hepsia as the web hosting Control Panel. These 3 web accelerators feature several gbs of dedicated memory and you may employ them to speed up any sort of site. Memcached can greatly lessen the load on the web server if you have script-driven Internet sites because it caches database responses, thus it lessens the number of database queries that the web server has to take care of. Node.js will allow you to build scalable applications with real-time user-server interaction such as chats or dining booking Internet sites. Its advantage over very similar platforms is that it processes information the moment the end user enters it, so all the info is handled quicker and in small portions. Varnish caches whole webpages the first time a site visitor opens them and provides them each time the same website visitor opens them again, which makes it a universal accelerator for any type of websites. Because it operates quicker than any hosting server, it can speed up an Internet site at least several times and because of this, Varnish is amongst the most widely used web accelerators around.
