Determine what specifically web accelerators are and ways in which you'll be able to take advantage of them to boost your website’s overall performance.
A web accelerator is a server-side app which accelerates an Internet site. Such a piece of software can work in different ways depending on the website content, but in the typical situation all such programs cache content and deliver it instead of the web server. That is valid for both static and dynamic sites because the cached content can be simple text or database responses and the benefit of using a web accelerator is not simply the faster loading website, but also the decreased overall load on the hosting server. This way, you could use a lower-end hosting solution that'll also cost less while your visitors could still enjoy fast browsing speeds. Few companies provide web accelerators with their hosting packages and they frequently offer just 1, while we offer 3 different ones which will enable you to improve the performance of any sort of website noticeably.
Web Accelerators in Website Hosting
Our website hosting plans feature three web accelerators that you can employ depending on the sites which you would like to run. Memcached is employed to cache database or API calls and responses, which can considerably boost the performance of dynamic Internet sites. Varnish is a popular HTTP accelerator that caches web pages and delivers them to the website visitors considerably quicker than the web server after the first time they open them. Node.js is an event-driven platform used for scalable real-time apps such as booking sites. Depending on the Internet hosting plan you pick, these 3 programs might already be included or could be optional upgrades. In either case, you shall be able to choose how many instances of each of them shall be at your disposal and what amount of memory they should employ. These accelerators are provided only by a few hosting providers, including ours, and they could increase the speed of your web applications significantly.
- Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated HostingThe Hepsia CP which comes with our semi-dedicated hosting solutions will permit you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your websites. Memcached is among the most famous accelerators as it can effortlessly increase the speed of any API or database-driven site by caching requests and responses, as a result the hosting server won't need to process identical requests time after time. The platform is suitable for sites built with programs like Joomla™, Mambo or WordPress. Varnish is an efficient accelerator which caches any type of content and is also often called an HTTP reverse proxy. It caches web pages that are opened by a website visitor for the first time and provides them each time that same guest opens them again. Varnish can certainly accelerate a website several times simply because it delivers content faster than any web server. Node.js is a platform employed for scalable real-time apps such as chats, Internet browser games or social networks. It processes data in smaller pieces the moment a user enters anything, as a result it works considerably faster than similar platforms where users submit massive chunks of data that require time to be processed. You could choose the number of instances and the dedicated memory for each of the three accelerators via your CP.
- Web Accelerators in VPS HostingIf you get a virtual private server with the Hepsia CP, you shall be able to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your sites. All three accelerators are included inside our packages by default and offer dedicated memory of several hundred megabytes. Node.js is employed to create scalable applications where real-time interaction is required - booking Internet sites, online flash games, chats, etcetera. It processes the information in smaller portions as the user is entering it, thus it works quicker than other platforms which wait for the end users to enter one massive part of information. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator which operates as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it in case the same visitor opens the same website again, which could speed any Internet site several times as Varnish functions a lot quicker than any hosting server. Memcached is employed for caching API and database responses, so it's ideal for script-driven Internet sites such as WordPress and Joomla™. This web accelerator can decrease the load on your server since it shall reduced the amount of database queries your Internet sites make.
- Web Accelerators in Dedicated Web HostingMemcached, Varnish and Node.js are available with all dedicated servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and in accordance with the plan you opt for, you will also have several gbs of dedicated memory for them. Memcached shall reduce the hosting server load by lowering the amount of queries which need to be addressed because it caches database calls and responses. You'll be able to use it on any website that uses an API or a database - as an illustration, any website built with WordPress or Joomla™. Varnish can improve the performance of any type of website by caching whole pages the first time a visitor opens them. The accelerator delivers the webpages if the same visitor opens them later and given that it does that faster than the web server, the visitor will be able to browse your website at least a few times faster. For this reason Varnish is oftentimes called an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is an advanced platform that'll permit you to develop booking websites, web chats and other apps where real-time server-user interaction is necessary. It processes the information in little portions as the user fills different boxes and doesn't wait for all boxes to be filled and processed as one massive piece of data, which makes Node.js way quicker than similar applications.
