Discover how using a Web Accelerator can significantly enhance the performance of your web site.
A web accelerator is a server-side application which quickens a site. Such a piece of software could function in different ways depending on the site content, but in the general case all such apps cache content and deliver it instead of the web server. That's valid for both dynamic and static websites since the cached content may be simple text or database responses and the advantage of employing a web accelerator is not simply the faster loading Internet site, but also the smaller overall load on the web server. That way, you'll be able to employ a lower-end hosting solution that will also cost less while your site visitors can still enjoy fast browsing speeds. Few firms offer web accelerators with their hosting deals and they usually offer only one, while we offer 3 different ones that will allow you to boost the performance of any type of site noticeably.
Web Accelerators in Hosting
If you purchase one of our hosting plans, you'll have three widely used web accelerators at your disposal and you shall be able to access them directly via the Hepsia CP which is included with our packages. Varnish is one of the most popular ones and it could tremendously increase the speed of any website as it caches the pages which a site visitor opens for the first time and delivers them every time that visitor opens them again. Since Varnish functions considerably faster than any hosting server, the loading speed of any Internet site using the accelerator will raise noticeably. Memcached is used to cache database and API calls and responses between a site visitor and a web server, so it is much like Varnish, but is employed predominantly for database-driven sites. Because the Internet site shall connect to its database a lot less, the overall hosting server load will be minimized significantly. The third accelerator, Node.js, is employed for scalable online programs like chats and booking sites because it processes info in real time as soon as it is entered on the site by the users. Based on the package you select, these accelerators might be available or could be an optional upgrade.
- Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated HostingYou shall be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the websites hosted within your semi-dedicated hosting account in accordance with the nature of the website content. Memcached, for instance, caches database requests, so it is a superb choice for any script application like WordPress or Joomla™. That way, the database web server will not have to process the exact same request if multiple users open a site with the same content. Varnish is similar, but it is a general-purpose accelerator as it caches any sort of content the first time a visitor opens a site. In case that page is opened again by the very same guest, it shall be delivered by Varnish at a much higher speed compared to the web server. Using this web accelerator shall minimize the load generated by your sites drastically. Last, but not least, Node.js will permit you to build scalable web apps like hotel booking websites or chats. Its advantage over similar platforms is that it doesn't wait for a client to submit a big piece of data, but processes whatever the user is entering in real-time. The three web accelerators are available inside the Hepsia CP and you shall be able to select how many instances of each one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they can use.
- Web Accelerators in VPS HostingAll virtual private servers that are set up with the Hepsia Control Panel come with Varnish, Memcached and Node.js already included and you will have several hundred megabytes of dedicated memory for them by default. Varnish, that is also often called an HTTP reverse proxy, caches web pages the first time a visitor opens them and provides them in case that visitor opens them again, so the server shall not need to perform any action. As Varnish works faster than any server, a site employing this accelerator will operate several times faster. Memcached is a platform that caches database calls and responses and it is used for WordPress, Joomla™ and other script-driven apps that store their content within a database. Node.js is a powerful platform for building scalable web programs. Any info on a website that uses Node.js is processed right away, which makes it a great choice for dining and accommodation booking sites, web-based chats, Internet browser games, etcetera.
- Web Accelerators in Dedicated Web HostingIn the event that you select Hepsia as the hosting CP for your new dedicated server, you shall have Memcached, Varnish and Node.js at your disposal for accelerating your sites. Memcached will be able to reduce the load on the web server by lowering the queries your script-driven Internet sites make since it caches database responses. This web accelerator is perfect for dynamic websites developed with WordPress, Joomla™ and comparable scripts. Varnish, which is referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy, caches entire websites the first time a new visitor opens them. It could be used to speed up any kind of Internet site since it delivers the cached content much faster than the hosting server each time a customer opens the same site again. You could use Node.js for online programs that require real-time server-client interaction including online chats or booking sites. Unlike other platforms that wait for the user to enter everything on a form, Node.js processes the data piece by piece as the user fills each box, so it works much faster and more effectively. All dedicated server packages come with several gigabytes of memory dedicated to those 3 web accelerators.
