A web accelerator is a server-side application which quickens a website. Such a piece of software may work in different ways based on the website content, but in the general situation all such applications cache content and deliver it instead of the web server. That's valid for both static and dynamic websites since the cached content could be simple text or database responses and the reward of using a web accelerator isn't just the faster loading website, but also the minimized overall load on the hosting server. This way, you could employ a lower-end hosting plan that'll also cost less while your visitors could still enjoy fast browsing speeds. Several businesses offer web accelerators with their hosting plans and they often offer only 1, while we offer 3 different ones which will permit you to improve the performance of any sort of Internet site tremendously.
Web Accelerators in Website Hosting
If you purchase one of our website hosting
plans, you'll have three well-known web accelerators at your disposal and you will be able to access them directly through the Hepsia Control Panel that is included with our packages. Varnish is one of the most well-known ones and it can significantly increase the speed of any Internet site since it caches the pages a website visitor opens for the first time and delivers them each time that guest opens them again. Given that Varnish operates considerably faster than any hosting server, the loading speed of any website using the accelerator will raise considerably. Memcached is employed to cache database and API calls and responses between a visitor and a hosting server, so it's much like Varnish, but is employed mainly for database-driven Internet sites. Because the site will connect to its database a lot less, the overall web server load shall be reduced considerably. The last accelerator, Node.js, is used for scalable online apps including chats and booking Internet sites since it processes info in real time the instant it is entered on the website by the users. Depending on the plan you pick, these accelerators might be available or may be an optional upgrade.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You'll be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the Internet sites hosted inside your semi-dedicated hosting
account depending on the nature of the site content. Memcached, in particular, caches database requests, so it is a great option for any script program such as WordPress or Joomla™
. This way, the database web server shall not have to process exactly the same request if many users open a webpage with the same content. Varnish is similar, but it is a general-purpose accelerator because it caches any sort of content the first time a website visitor opens a site. In case this web page is opened again by the exact same guest, it'll be provided by Varnish at a much higher speed compared to the hosting server. Employing this web accelerator will minimize the load generated by your Internet sites drastically. Last, but not least, Node.js shall enable you to build scalable web applications like hotel booking sites or chats. Its advantage over very similar platforms is that it doesn't wait for a user to submit a big piece of data, but processes whatever the user is typing 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 and every one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they can employ.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers Hosting
Memcached, Varnish and Node.js are offered with all dedicated servers
ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and depending on the plan you select, you will also have several gbs of dedicated memory for them. Memcached will decrease the web server load by lowering the amount of queries that need to be dealt with as it caches database calls and responses. You shall be able to use it on any website that uses an API or a database - as an example, any site created with WordPress or Joomla™
. Varnish can easily boost the performance of any type of site by caching whole pages the first time a visitor opens them. The accelerator delivers the pages if the same visitor opens them afterwards and given that it does that way quicker than the hosting server, the website visitor shall be able to browse your website at least several times faster. That is why Varnish is often referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is a sophisticated platform that will enable you to build booking sites, web chats and other apps in which real-time server-user interaction is needed. It processes the information in little pieces as the client fills different boxes and doesn't wait for all boxes to be filled and processed as one big chunk of information, which makes Node.js way quicker than similar apps.
