A web accelerator is a server-side application that speeds up a website. Such a piece of software can function in different ways depending on the website content, but in the typical case all such applications cache content and deliver it instead of the hosting server. This is valid for both dynamic and static Internet sites because the cached content can be simple text or database responses and the benefit of employing a web accelerator is not just the faster loading website, but also the decreased overall load on the hosting server. That way, you'll be able to employ a lower-end hosting plan that'll also cost less while your site visitors could still enjoy fast browsing speeds. Few service providers provide web accelerators with their hosting packages and they usually offer only 1, while we offer 3 different ones that will enable you to enhance the performance of any kind of site substantially.
Web Accelerators in Cloud Hosting
If you get one of our cloud hosting plans, you will have three well-known web accelerators at your disposal and you shall be able to access them directly through the Hepsia CP which is included with our plans. Varnish is one of the most widely used ones and it could significantly increase the speed of any website since it caches the web pages which a site visitor opens for the first time and provides them each time that visitor opens them again. Given that Varnish operates faster than any hosting server, the loading speed of any Internet site using the accelerator will raise considerably. Memcached is employed to cache database and API calls and responses between a website visitor and a web server, so it is comparable to Varnish, but is used mainly for database-driven websites. Because the site will connect to its database a lot less, the overall hosting server load shall be minimized significantly. The last accelerator, Node.js, is used for scalable online programs including chats and booking sites as it processes information in real time as soon as it is entered on the webpage by the users. Dependant upon the plan you pick, these accelerators could be available or could be an optional upgrade.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server plans shall enable you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js - three of the most effective web accelerators available on the market. Memcached is employed to cache database and API calls and responses, thus it can easily speed up any script-driven website. You can use it for any Internet site built with WordPress or Joomla, for example. Varnish is also often called an HTTP reverse proxy and it is a general-purpose caching platform that could be employed for any kind of sites. With regards to the content, it could increase the performance of a site approximately 300%. Node.js is an advanced system employed to develop scalable Internet applications which process info in real time for instance booking portals. Its advantage is that unlike comparable platforms, it processes information continuously and in small bits instead of waiting for the user to submit one big piece of data. The accelerators may be enabled for any site from the Hepsia CP and you'll be able to choose how many instances of every one of them shall work and how much memory they shall use.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers
Memcached, Node.js and Varnish are provided by default with all our dedicated servers which are ordered with Hepsia as the hosting CP. These 3 web accelerators include several gbs of dedicated memory and you can employ them to speed up any type of website. Memcached can greatly lessen the load on the web server if you have script-driven sites since it caches database responses, therefore it lessens the amount of database queries the web server has to deal with. Node.js shall permit you to create scalable applications with real-time user-server interaction such as chats or dining booking Internet sites. Its advantage over very similar platforms is that it processes information the moment the end user enters it, so all the information is managed swifter and in small portions. Varnish caches whole pages the first time a site visitor opens them and provides them every time the same guest opens them again, that makes it a universal accelerator for any type of sites. Because it functions quicker than any server, it can speed up a site at least several times and due to this fact, Varnish is among the most widely used web accelerators on the market.
