A web accelerator is a program that speeds up a website, typically by caching its content. There are various sorts of accelerators, but in the common case this kind of programs cache static content or database responses and provide them instead of the web server, thus boosting the performance of a site noticeably. The latter is achievable because accelerator applications work faster than a hosting server and not only will an Internet site work better, but the server load shall also minimize, which will allow you to run heavy Internet sites with less resources. We offer 3 web accelerators with our hosting packages, which will enable you to increase the speed of any type of site. In comparison, most website hosting businesses do not offer any web accelerators or offer one, which limits your choice of web apps in the event that you'd like to use such software.
Web Accelerators in Web Hosting
We provide 3 of the most popular web accelerators together with our web hosting services and based upon what plan you'll select when you sign up, they may already be available or they might be an optional upgrade. Varnish is the most popular one of them and it may be used for any kind of website. It caches the pages the first time a site visitor opens them and provides them at a much faster speed compared to the hosting server every time that a website visitor opens them again. Memcached is employed to cache API and database calls, so it can easily boost the speed of dynamic Internet sites such as online stores, forums or social networks. Node.js is employed for scalable web apps and it works in real-time, which makes it perfect for server-side data processing - chats, browser games, booking portals, and so forth. You'll be able to pick just how much memory these accelerators shall employ and how many instances of each one will run from your Hepsia website hosting CP.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You'll be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the sites hosted within your semi-dedicated hosting account depending on the nature of the website content. Memcached, for instance, caches database requests, therefore it is an excellent option for any script application such as WordPress or Joomla. That way, the database hosting server won't have to process the very same request if many users open a webpage with the same content. Varnish is comparable, but it is a general-purpose accelerator since it caches any kind of content the first time a website visitor opens a page. If this web page is opened again by the exact same visitor, it shall be provided by Varnish at a much higher speed compared to the hosting server. Using this web accelerator shall decrease the load produced by your Internet sites substantially. Last, but not least, Node.js shall enable you to produce scalable web applications like hotel booking sites or chats. Its advantage over comparable platforms is that it doesn't wait for a customer to submit a substantial piece of info, but processes whatever the client is entering in real-time. The 3 web accelerators are available within the Hepsia CP and you will be able to choose how many instances of each one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they'll use.
Web Accelerators in VPS
All virtual private servers which are set up 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's also referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy, caches webpages the first time a site visitor opens them and delivers them if that visitor opens them again, hence the server shall not need to perform any action. As Varnish works much quicker than any web server, a website employing this accelerator will work several times faster. Memcached is a platform which caches database calls and responses and it's used for WordPress, Joomla and other script-driven apps that store their content in a database. Node.js is an effective platform for developing scalable web applications. Any information on an Internet site which uses Node.js is processed in real time, making it a superb choice for dining and accommodation booking sites, web-based chats, web browser games, and so on.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Hosting
Memcached, Node.js and Varnish are provided by default with all of our dedicated servers that are ordered with Hepsia as the Internet hosting Control Panel. These 3 web accelerators feature several gigabytes of dedicated memory and you could employ them to speed up any type of website. Memcached can greatly lessen the load on the server if you have script-driven websites as it caches database responses, therefore it decreases the amount of database queries that the web server has to deal with. Node.js shall permit you to build scalable programs with real-time user-server interaction like chats or dining booking sites. Its advantage over similar platforms is that it processes data the instant the user enters it, so all the information is managed quicker and in small portions. Varnish caches whole pages the first time a visitor opens them and provides them each time the same guest opens them again, which makes it a universal accelerator for any sort of Internet sites. Since it operates quicker than any web server, it could speed up a website at least several times and because of this, Varnish is among the most popular web accelerators around.
