Learn what specifically web accelerators are and just how you'll be able to take advantage of them to improve your web site’s efficiency.
A web accelerator is an application which quickens a site, usually by caching its content. There are different sorts of accelerators, but in the general case such programs cache static content or database responses and provide them in place of the server, thus improving the performance of a site significantly. The latter is possible because accelerator applications work faster than a web server and not only will a website operate better, but the server load will also decline, which will permit you to run heavy sites with less system resources. We provide three web accelerators with our hosting plans, which will enable you to accelerate any sort of website. In comparison, most hosting companies don't provide any web accelerators or provide one, which limits your choice of web applications if you would like to employ this kind of software.
Web Accelerators in Cloud Hosting
In case you host your websites in a cloud hosting account from our firm, you shall have three popular web accelerators to choose from if you'd like to improve the sites' performance. Memcached is employed for database-driven sites and it caches the calls and requests between an Internet site and its database, so it can reduce the load of such websites significantly. Varnish caches whole web pages the first time a visitor opens them and provides them from there on if the same site visitor opens them again. It does that much faster than the web server, so it could increase the loading speed of any site nearly 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time programs which functions on the web server and not inside the visitor's browser. It is employed for accommodation booking, chats and other apps where loads of data should be processed in real time. The availability of these accelerators depends on the hosting package which you pick - they may come by default or as an upgrade. In each case, you shall be able to include more instances or more memory for each one of them.
- Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated ServersYou shall be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the Internet sites hosted inside your semi-dedicated server account depending on the nature of the website content. Memcached, in particular, caches database requests, so it is an excellent choice for any script app like WordPress or Joomla™. That way, the database web server will not have to process the same request if multiple users open a site with the same content. Varnish is similar, but it's a general-purpose accelerator because it caches any sort of content the first time a guest opens a page. In case that webpage is opened again by the same visitor, it will be delivered by Varnish at a greater speed compared to the server. Employing this web accelerator will minimize the load created by your Internet sites significantly. Last, but not least, Node.js shall enable you to build scalable web programs such as hotel booking Internet sites or chats. Its advantage over very similar platforms is that it does not wait for a client to submit a large piece of data, but processes whatever the customer is inputting 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 one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they can employ.
- Web Accelerators in VPS ServersIn case you get a VPS server with the Hepsia CP, you shall be able to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your Internet sites. All three accelerators are included in our solutions by default and offer dedicated memory of a few hundred megabytes. Node.js is employed to create scalable applications where real-time interaction is necessary - booking websites, online games, chats, etc. It processes the info in small bits as the user is entering it, as a result it operates faster than other platforms that wait for the end users to enter one sizeable part of information. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator that works as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it in case the same guest opens the same webpage again, which can speed any site several times since Varnish works a lot quicker than any server. Memcached is employed for caching API and database responses, so it's suitable for script-driven Internet sites like WordPress and Joomla™. This web accelerator can easily minimize the load on your server because it will lower the amount of database queries that your websites make.
- Web Accelerators in Dedicated ServersMemcached, Node.js and Varnish are offered by default with all our dedicated servers that are ordered with Hepsia as the web hosting Control Panel. These three web accelerators offer several gigabytes of dedicated memory and you can use them to speed up any sort of Internet site. Memcached can greatly decrease the load on the hosting server if you have script-driven websites because it caches database responses, so it minimizes the amount of database queries the server has to handle. Node.js shall enable you to create scalable applications with real-time user-server interaction including chats or dining booking sites. Its advantage over very similar platforms is that it processes info as soon as the end user enters it, so all the data is managed faster and in small parts. Varnish caches whole webpages the first time a visitor opens them and provides them each time the same website visitor opens them again, which makes it a universal accelerator for any kind of websites. As it operates faster than any hosting server, it can easily speed up an Internet site at least several times and due to this fact, Varnish is one of the most popular web accelerators on the market.
