A web accelerator is a program which speeds up a website, usually by caching its content. There are many types of accelerators, but in the general case this kind of applications cache static content or database responses and supply them instead of the hosting server, hence boosting the performance of a site drastically. The latter can be done because accelerator programs work faster than a web server and not only will an Internet site work better, but the server load shall also lessen, which will permit you to run heavy websites with less resources. We offer three web accelerators with our hosting plans, which will permit you to increase the speed of any type of website. In comparison, most Internet hosting businesses do not provide any web accelerators or provide one, which limits your choice of web apps in the event that you'd like to employ this type of software.
Web Accelerators in Shared Hosting
In case you buy one of our shared hosting plans, you shall have three well-known web accelerators at your disposal and you'll be able to access them directly through the Hepsia CP that comes with our solutions. Varnish is one of the most widely used ones and it could considerably accelerate any site because it caches the web pages that a site visitor opens for the first time and delivers them each and every time that visitor opens them again. Given that Varnish functions faster than any web server, the loading speed of any site using the accelerator will raise substantially. Memcached is used to cache database and API calls and responses between a site visitor and a web server, so it is similar to Varnish, but is employed primarily for database-driven Internet sites. Considering that the website will connect to its database a lot less, the overall web server load will be decreased notably. The last accelerator, Node.js, is employed for scalable online applications including chats and booking websites as it processes info in real time the moment it is entered on the website by the users. Depending on the plan you select, these accelerators may be available or could be an optional upgrade.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You'll be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the websites hosted within your semi-dedicated hosting account based on the nature of the site content. Memcached, for example, caches database requests, therefore it's an excellent option for any script program such as WordPress or Joomla. That way, the database server shall not have to process exactly the same request if multiple users open a site with the same content. Varnish is comparable, but it is a general-purpose accelerator because it caches any sort of content the first time a guest opens a page. If that webpage is opened again by the same guest, it will be provided by Varnish at a much higher speed compared to the web server. Employing this web accelerator will decrease the load generated by your websites considerably. Last, but not least, Node.js shall permit you to build scalable web programs like hotel booking sites or chats. Its advantage over very similar platforms is that it doesn't wait for a user to submit a large piece of data, but processes whatever the client is typing in real-time. The 3 web accelerators are available within the Hepsia Control Panel and you'll be able to pick how many instances of each and every one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they'll employ.
Web Accelerators in VPS Hosting
We offer Memcached, Node.js and Varnish with all virtual private servers that are acquired with the Hepsia Control Panel. Your web server will also come with several hundred megabytes of dedicated memory for these accelerators and the specific amount would be determined by the package that you choose. Memcached is employed for script-driven sites because it caches database responses, as a result decreasing the amount of queries that a script sends to its database. It could be used for any script including WordPress or Joomla. Node.js is an efficient platform for building web programs such as booking sites and chats. The real-time interaction between users and a hosting server is carried out by processing little bits of information as soon any user inputs anything on the website. In comparison, other platforms wait for customers to input plenty of data before they process it, as a result they function more slowly. Varnish is a multi-purpose accelerator which caches whole pages and delivers them instead of the hosting server at a much faster rate. It is also often called an HTTP reverse proxy and it can effortlessly speed up any kind of site.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Web Hosting
Memcached, Varnish and Node.js are offered with all dedicated servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting CP and in accordance with the package you pick, you will also have several gbs of dedicated memory for them. Memcached shall decrease the web server load by lowering the number of queries which need to be handled because 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 illustration, any website built with WordPress or Joomla. Varnish can improve the performance of any type of site by caching whole webpages the first time a guest opens them. The accelerator provides the web pages if the very same visitor opens them later on and since it does that considerably quicker than the hosting server, the website visitor shall be able to look through your website at least a couple of times faster. That is why Varnish is often referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is an innovative platform that will enable you to develop booking sites, web chats and other applications in which real-time server-user interaction is needed. It processes the data in small bits as the user fills different boxes and doesn't wait for all boxes to be filled and processed as one massive chunk of info, which makes Node.js much faster than similar apps.
