A web accelerator is a server-side program which quickens an Internet site. Such a piece of software may operate in different ways based on the website content, but in the general case all such applications cache content and deliver it instead of the hosting server. That is valid for both static and dynamic Internet sites as the cached content may be simple text or database responses and the advantage of employing a web accelerator isn't only the faster loading site, but also the minimized overall load on the hosting server. That way, you'll be able to use a lower-end hosting plan which will also cost less while your site visitors will be able to still enjoy superior browsing speeds. Several businesses provide web accelerators with their hosting packages and they usually offer only one, while we offer three different ones which will permit you to boost the performance of any sort of site noticeably.
Web Accelerators in Shared Hosting
We offer 3 of the most popular web accelerators with our shared hosting packages and based upon what plan you will choose when you sign up, they might already be available or they may be an optional upgrade. Varnish is the most popular one of them and it can be employed for any sort of site. It caches the pages the first time a website visitor opens them and provides them at a faster speed compared to the hosting server every time that a website visitor opens them again. Memcached is used to cache API and database calls, so it could boost the speed of dynamic sites including online stores, discussion boards or social networks. Node.js is used for scalable web apps and it operates in real-time, which makes it perfect for server-side data processing - chats, browser games, booking portals, etcetera. You shall be able to select what amount of memory these accelerators will use and how many instances of each will run from your Hepsia hosting CP.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers
You'll be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the websites hosted in your semi-dedicated server account based on the nature of the website content. Memcached, for example, caches database requests, therefore it is a great option for any script program like WordPress or Joomla. This way, the database web server shall not need to process the very same request if a number of users open a site with the same content. Varnish is very similar, but it's a general-purpose accelerator as it caches any sort of content the first time a visitor opens an Internet site. If this webpage is opened again by the same guest, it will be provided by Varnish at a much better speed compared to the hosting server. Using this web accelerator can lessen the load created by your sites significantly. Last, but not least, Node.js will enable you to build scalable web apps like hotel booking sites or chats. Its advantage over similar platforms is that it does not wait for a customer to submit a large piece of info, but processes whatever the customer is inputting in real-time. The three web accelerators are available within the Hepsia Control Panel and you shall be able to choose how many instances of each one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they may employ.
Web Accelerators in VPS Servers
We provide Memcached, Node.js and Varnish with all VPS servers which are acquired with the Hepsia CP. Your server shall also come with a few hundred megabytes of dedicated memory for these accelerators and the actual amount would depend on the package that you choose. Memcached is used for script-driven sites since it caches database responses, consequently reducing the number of queries which a script sends to its database. It can be employed for any script like WordPress or Joomla. Node.js is an efficient platform for developing web apps like booking websites and chats. The real-time interaction between end users and a server is performed by processing small bits of data as soon any user inputs anything on the site. In contrast, other platforms await customers to enter plenty of information before they process it, therefore they function more slowly. Varnish is a multi-purpose accelerator which caches entire webpages and delivers them instead of the web server at a considerably faster rate. It's also known as an HTTP reverse proxy and it can effortlessly speed up any type of site.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers
In case you pick Hepsia as the hosting CP for your new dedicated server, you'll have Memcached, Varnish and Node.js at your disposal for speeding up your Internet sites. Memcached can easily reduce the load on the hosting server by lowering the queries your script-driven sites make as it caches database responses. This web accelerator is good for dynamic sites built with WordPress, Joomla and very similar scripts. Varnish, which is referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy, caches whole sites the first time a new guest opens them. It could be employed to accelerate any type of website because it delivers the cached content way quicker than the web server any time a customer opens the same page again. You'll be able to employ Node.js for online programs that demand real-time server-client interaction like online chats or booking websites. In contrast to other platforms which await the user to fill everything on a form, Node.js processes the information bit by bit as the user fills every box, so it works considerably faster and more effectively. All dedicated server solutions include several gigabytes of memory dedicated to those 3 web accelerators.
