Just what do web accelerators do? What could you do to increase your Internet site's load speed?
A web accelerator is a server-side app that accelerates a website. Such a piece of software may function in different ways based on the site content, but in the typical situation all such programs cache content and deliver it instead of the web server. That is valid for both dynamic and static Internet sites since the cached content can be simple text or database responses and the advantage of using a web accelerator isn't just the faster loading website, but also the reduced overall load on the server. This way, you could use a lower-end hosting solution that will also cost less while your site visitors can still enjoy high browsing speeds. Several companies supply web accelerators with their hosting packages and they frequently offer only 1, while we offer 3 different ones that'll allow you to boost the performance of any type of site significantly.
Web Accelerators in Shared Web Hosting
We offer three of the most popular web accelerators together with our shared web hosting packages and depending on what plan you will select when you sign up, they may already be available or they may be an optional upgrade. Varnish is the most widely used one of them and it could be employed for any type of website. It caches the pages the first time a site visitor opens them and delivers them at a much faster speed compared to the hosting server each time that a visitor opens them again. Memcached is used to cache API and database calls, so it can boost the speed of dynamic websites like online stores, community forums or social networks. Node.js is used for scalable web programs and it functions in real-time, which makes it ideal for server-side data processing - chats, browser games, booking portals, etcetera. You shall be able to pick just how much memory these accelerators will employ and how many instances of each shall run from your Hepsia hosting CP.
- Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated HostingThe Hepsia Control Panel which is included with our semi-dedicated hosting solutions shall permit you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your sites. Memcached is one of the most well-known accelerators as it can effortlessly accelerate any API or database-driven Internet site by caching requests and responses, as a result the hosting server shall not need to process identical requests again and again. The platform is suitable for sites built with apps such as Joomla™, Mambo or WordPress. Varnish is a powerful accelerator that caches any type of content and is also often called an HTTP reverse proxy. It caches pages that are opened by a website visitor for the first time and delivers them every time that very same guest opens them again. Varnish can speed up a website several times since it delivers content faster than any server. Node.js is a platform used for scalable real-time applications like chats, browser games or social networks. It processes info in smaller parts as soon as a user enters something, so it functions faster than similar platforms where users submit big chunks of info that need time to be processed. You'll be able to select the number of instances and the dedicated memory for each of the three accelerators via your Control Panel.
- Web Accelerators in VPS Web HostingAll virtual private servers which are incorporated 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 website visitor opens them and delivers them if that visitor opens them again, therefore the hosting server won't have to perform any action. Due to the fact that Varnish functions faster than any web server, a site employing this accelerator shall work several times quicker. Memcached is a platform that caches database calls and responses and it is employed for WordPress, Joomla™ and other script-driven apps that store their content in a database. Node.js is an efficient platform for building scalable web programs. Any info on an Internet site which employs Node.js is processed right away, making it an excellent choice for dining and accommodation booking sites, web-based chats, Internet browser games, etcetera.
- Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers HostingMemcached, Node.js and Varnish are available by default with all of our dedicated servers which are ordered with Hepsia as the hosting CP. These three web accelerators feature several gbs of dedicated memory and you could employ them to speed up any type of website. Memcached can drastically decrease the load on the hosting server if you have script-driven sites as it caches database responses, therefore it decreases the number of database queries which the hosting server has to take care of. Node.js shall permit you to build scalable applications with real-time user-server interaction including chats or dining booking websites. Its advantage over similar platforms is that it processes data the instant the end user enters it, so all the info is handled quicker and in small parts. Varnish caches entire Internet pages the first time a visitor opens them and provides them each and every time the same website visitor opens them again, which makes it a universal accelerator for any sort of sites. Because it operates quicker than any web server, it could speed up a website at least several times and due to this fact, Varnish is among the most popular web accelerators out there.
