Learn what precisely web accelerators are and how you'll be able to take full advantage of them to boost your web site’s overall performance.
A web accelerator is a program that speeds up a site, normally by caching its content. There are different types of accelerators, but in the common case this sort of programs cache static content or database responses and provide them in lieu of the web server, as a consequence enhancing the performance of a site significantly. The latter is possible because accelerator programs work faster than a hosting server and not only will a website function better, but the server load will also lessen, which will allow you to run heavy sites with less system resources. We offer 3 web accelerators with our hosting solutions, which will allow you to accelerate any kind of site. In comparison, most hosting providers don't provide any web accelerators or offer one, which limits your choice of web applications in the event that you'd like to use this kind of software.
Web Accelerators in Cloud Hosting
Our cloud hosting
packages feature 3 web accelerators that you can employ depending on the sites that you'd like to run. Memcached is employed to cache database or API calls and responses, which can significantly boost the performance of dynamic websites. Varnish is a popular HTTP accelerator that caches web pages and provides them to the visitors faster than the hosting server after the first time they open them. Node.js is an event-driven platform used for scalable real-time apps including booking sites. Based on the web hosting plan you pick, these three programs might already be included or might be optional upgrades. In either case, you will 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 employ. These accelerators are offered only by a handful of web hosting service providers, including ours, and they can easily boost the speed of your web apps significantly.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers
The Hepsia CP that is provided with our semi-dedicated server
solutions shall enable you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your sites. Memcached is among the most widely used accelerators since it can effortlessly increase the speed of any API or database-driven Internet site by caching requests and responses, as a result the hosting server will not have to process identical requests time after time. The platform is perfect for sites designed with programs such as Joomla™
, Mambo or WordPress. Varnish is a powerful accelerator which caches any kind of content and is also frequently called an HTTP reverse proxy. It caches webpages which are opened by a site visitor for the first time and delivers them every time that same website visitor opens them again. Varnish can certainly accelerate an Internet site several times since it delivers content quicker than any web server. Node.js is a platform employed for scalable real-time programs such as chats, web browser games or social networks. It processes info in little pieces the moment a user enters anything, therefore it functions much faster than similar platforms in which users submit massive portions of information that require time to be processed. You'll be able to choose the number of instances and the dedicated memory for each and every one of the 3 accelerators via your CP.
Web Accelerators in VPS Servers
In the event that you obtain a VPS server
with the Hepsia Control Panel, you shall be able to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your Internet sites. All 3 accelerators are included inside our plans by default and offer dedicated memory of a few hundred MBs. Node.js is used to develop scalable programs where real-time interaction is needed - booking websites, online games, chats, and so forth. It processes the information in smaller pieces as the end user is entering it, thus it works quicker than other platforms which wait for the end users to enter one large bit of information. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator which functions as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it in the event that the same visitor opens the same page again, which can certainly speed any Internet site several times as Varnish works more quickly than any server. Memcached is employed for caching API and database responses, so it is appropriate for script-driven sites such as WordPress and Joomla™
. This web accelerator can decrease the load on your web server as it shall reduce the number of database queries that your websites make.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers
Memcached, Varnish and Node.js are available with all dedicated servers
ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and in accordance with the package which you pick, you will also have several gbs of dedicated memory for them. Memcached shall minimize the web server load by lowering the number of queries which need to be addressed as it caches database calls and responses. You shall be able to use it on any site which uses an API or a database - for example, any site developed with WordPress or Joomla™
. Varnish can enhance the performance of any type of website by caching whole webpages the first time a visitor opens them. The accelerator provides the web pages if the exact same visitor opens them afterwards and since it does that considerably faster than the server, the visitor will be able to browse your Internet site at least a couple of times faster. That's why Varnish is oftentimes categorised as an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is a sophisticated platform that will allow you to create booking sites, web chats and other apps in which real-time server-user interaction is required. It processes the data in small portions as the client fills different boxes and doesn't wait for all boxes to be filled and processed as one substantial chunk of data, which makes Node.js considerably faster than similar programs.
