A web accelerator is a server-side application which speeds up an Internet site. Such a piece of software can work in different ways depending on the site content, but in the typical situation all such applications cache content and deliver it instead of the hosting server. This is valid for both static and dynamic Internet sites because the cached content can be simple text or database responses and the benefit of employing a web accelerator isn't simply the faster loading site, but also the smaller overall load on the machine. This way, you could use a lower-end hosting solution which will also cost less while your website visitors will be able to still enjoy fast browsing speeds. Handful of service providers provide web accelerators with their hosting plans and they usually offer just 1, while we offer 3 different ones that will enable you to boost the performance of any kind of site noticeably.
Web Accelerators in Web Hosting
When you purchase one of our web hosting packages, you'll have 3 widely used web accelerators at your disposal and you shall be able to access them directly using the Hepsia CP that comes with our packages. Varnish is one of the most widely used ones and it could tremendously accelerate any site as it caches the pages that a visitor opens for the first time and delivers them every time that website visitor opens them again. Given that Varnish works considerably faster than any server, the loading speed of any site using the accelerator will grow considerably. Memcached is used to cache database and API calls and responses between a visitor and a web server, so it is similar to Varnish, but is employed predominantly for database-driven Internet sites. Since the site will connect to its database significantly less, the overall web server load shall be minimized significantly. The third accelerator, Node.js, is used for scalable online programs such as chats and booking sites because it processes data in real time the instant it is entered on the webpage by the users. Dependant upon the plan you pick, these accelerators may be available or might be an optional upgrade.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers
You shall be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the Internet sites hosted within your semi-dedicated server account based on the nature of the website content. Memcached, in particular, caches database requests, so it is a fantastic option for any script application like WordPress or Joomla. This way, the database server will not have to process the exact same request if a number of users open a webpage with the same content. Varnish is similar, but it's a general-purpose accelerator since it caches any type of content the first time a website visitor opens a page. If that page is opened again by the very same visitor, it will be provided by Varnish at a much higher speed compared to the server. Employing this web accelerator shall decrease the load created by your sites drastically. Last, but not least, Node.js shall permit you to create scalable web applications such as hotel booking Internet sites or chats. Its advantage over comparable platforms is that it does not wait for a user to submit a sizable piece of data, but processes whatever the client is typing in real-time. The three web accelerators are available inside the Hepsia Control Panel and you'll be able to select how many instances of every one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they can use.
Web Accelerators in VPS Servers
All VPS servers which are incorporated with the Hepsia CP come with Varnish, Memcached and Node.js already included and you will get several hundred MBs of dedicated memory for them by default. Varnish, that is also referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy, caches web pages the first time a site visitor opens them and provides them if that visitor opens them again, so the hosting server will not have to perform any action. Due to the fact that Varnish works much faster than any web server, a website using this accelerator shall function several times swifter. Memcached is a platform that caches database calls and responses and it's used for WordPress, Joomla and other script-driven applications that store their content in a database. Node.js is a highly effective platform for developing scalable web programs. Any info on a website which employs Node.js is processed in real time, which makes it a great choice for dining and accommodation booking Internet sites, web-based chats, web browser games, and so forth.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers
In case you acquire a dedicated server from our company and you select Hepsia as the hosting CP, you shall be able to use Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your Internet sites. All solutions feature several gigabytes of memory dedicated to those accelerators and the exact amount depends on the plan you select. Node.js is employed for scalable online programs such as browser games or hotel booking and it processes the data immediately as the user enters it, which makes it much quicker than comparable platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you use it for a script-driven Internet site, not only will the Internet site speed up, but also the load on the server will reduce since there will be fewer database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it's not limited to databases. Instead, it caches whole pages once a website visitor opens them and delivers them instead of the server each and every time the same visitor opens them later. As Varnish processes web requests much faster than any server, the overall performance of a site using this accelerator can increase up to 300%.
