A web accelerator is a server-side application which speeds up a website. Such a piece of software may operate in different ways based on the website content, but in the general case all such programs cache content and deliver it instead of the hosting server. That is valid for both static and dynamic websites because the cached content may be simple text or database responses and the benefit of using a web accelerator isn't simply the faster loading site, but also the minimized overall load on the web server. That way, you'll be able to employ a lower-end hosting package that will also cost less while your site visitors will be able to still enjoy fast browsing speeds. Several firms supply web accelerators with their hosting plans and they frequently offer only one, while we offer three different ones which will permit you to improve the performance of any type of Internet site significantly.
Web Accelerators in Cloud Website Hosting
Our cloud website hosting
packages come with three web accelerators which you could employ depending on the Internet sites which you'd like to run. Memcached is used to cache database or API calls and responses, which can considerably enhance the performance of dynamic sites. Varnish is a popular HTTP accelerator that caches web pages and provides them to the visitors considerably faster than the hosting server after the first time they open them. Node.js is an event-driven platform used for scalable real-time applications for example booking sites. Depending upon the Internet hosting package you select, these three programs could already be included or may be optional upgrades. Regardless, you'll be able to choose how many instances of every one of them will be at your disposal and what amount of memory they ought to use. These accelerators are provided only by several Internet hosting providers, including ours, and they can easily raise the speed of your web programs drastically.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with our semi-dedicated hosting
solutions will allow you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your sites. Memcached is one of the most popular accelerators as it can easily accelerate any API or database-driven website by caching requests and responses, thus the web server won't need to process identical requests time after time. The platform is perfect for websites developed with apps such as Joomla™
, Mambo or WordPress. Varnish is an effective accelerator which caches any kind 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 delivers them each time that same site visitor opens them again. Varnish can easily speed up a site several times simply because it delivers content quicker than any hosting server. Node.js is a platform used for scalable real-time applications such as chats, browser games or social networks. It processes data in small parts the moment a user types anything, so it works much more quickly than similar platforms in which users submit massive chunks of data that require time to be processed. You'll be able to select the number of instances and the dedicated memory for each and every one of the three accelerators via your CP.
Web Accelerators in VPS Web Hosting
We offer Memcached, Node.js and Varnish with all virtual private servers
which are obtained with the Hepsia Control Panel. Your hosting server will also feature a few hundred megabytes of dedicated memory for these accelerators and the exact amount would be determined by the package that you pick. Memcached is used for script-driven Internet sites as it caches database responses, consequently reducing the amount of queries that a script sends to its database. It can be used for any script such as WordPress or Joomla™
. Node.js is a highly effective platform for building web apps for example booking websites and chats. The real-time interaction between users and a hosting server is carried out by processing little pieces of info as soon any user enters anything on the site. In comparison, other platforms wait for users to input a considerable amount of information before they process it, thus they function slowly. Varnish is a multi-purpose accelerator that caches entire webpages and provides them instead of the hosting server at a much faster rate. It is also often called an HTTP reverse proxy and it can easily speed up any sort of site.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers Hosting
If you acquire a dedicated server
from our company and you pick Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel, you'll be able to employ 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 select. Node.js is used for scalable online apps like browser games or hotel booking and it processes the information right away as the client enters it, which makes it faster than very similar platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you employ it for a script-driven site, not only will the site speed up, but also the load on the hosting server will minimize since there shall be fewer database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it isn't limited to databases. Rather, it caches whole pages once a guest opens them and provides them instead of the web server every time the same visitor opens them afterwards. Because Varnish processes web requests much faster than any server, the overall performance of an Internet site using this accelerator could increase nearly 300%.
