Understand what exactly web accelerators are and in what way you can take full advantage of them to boost your site’s efficiency.
A web accelerator is an application which speeds up an Internet site, typically by caching its content. There are various types of accelerators, but in the typical case this kind of apps cache static content or database responses and supply them in place of the server, as a consequence increasing the performance of an Internet site greatly. The latter is possible because accelerator applications work faster than a server and not simply will an Internet site operate better, but the server load shall also minimize, which will enable you to run heavy websites with less resources. We provide three web accelerators with our hosting solutions, which will permit you to accelerate any kind of Internet site. In comparison, most hosting companies do not offer any web accelerators or provide one, which limits your choice of web apps if you would like to use this kind of software.
Web Accelerators in Shared Hosting
If you host your sites in a shared hosting account from us, you shall have 3 popular web accelerators to choose from if you'd like to boost the sites' efficiency. Memcached is used for database-driven websites and it caches the calls and requests between an Internet site and its database, so it can easily minimize the load of such websites substantially. Varnish caches whole webpages the first time a visitor opens them and delivers them from there on if the same site visitor opens them again. It does that considerably faster than the server, so it can easily increase the loading speed of any Internet site nearly 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time applications which works on the server and not within the visitor's browser. It's used for accommodation booking, chats and other apps where lots of data has to be processed in real time. The availability of the accelerators depends upon the hosting solution which you pick - they could come by default or as an upgrade. In each case, you shall be able to add more instances or more memory for each one of them.
- Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated ServersThe Hepsia CP which comes with our semi-dedicated server plans will permit you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your Internet sites. Memcached is among the most well known accelerators because it can effortlessly speed up any API or database-driven website by caching requests and responses, therefore the server won't have to process identical requests time after time. The platform is ideal for websites built with applications like Joomla™, Mambo or WordPress. Varnish is an efficient accelerator which caches any kind of content and is also frequently called an HTTP reverse proxy. It caches pages which are opened by a visitor for the first time and delivers them each time that very same website visitor opens them again. Varnish can certainly speed up a website several times simply because it delivers content quicker than any hosting server. Node.js is a platform used for scalable real-time apps such as chats, web browser games or social networks. It processes information in little pieces the moment a user types something, as a result it operates much faster than similar platforms where users submit sizeable parts of data which require time to be processed. You could pick the number of instances and the dedicated memory for every one of the three accelerators through your Control Panel.
- Web Accelerators in VPS ServersAll VPS servers that are integrated with the Hepsia Control Panel come with Varnish, Memcached and Node.js already included and you'll receive several hundred megabytes of dedicated memory for them by default. Varnish, that's also often called an HTTP reverse proxy, caches pages the first time a website visitor opens them and provides them if that visitor opens them again, therefore the server will not need to perform any action. Due to the fact that Varnish functions much faster than any hosting server, a website employing this accelerator shall function several times quicker. Memcached is a platform that caches database calls and responses and it is employed for WordPress, Joomla™ and other script-driven applications that store their content inside a database. Node.js is an effective platform for developing scalable web programs. Any data on an Internet site that employs Node.js is processed instantly, which makes it an excellent choice for dining and accommodation booking sites, web-based chats, Internet browser games, and so forth.
- Web Accelerators in Dedicated ServersIn the event that you choose Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel for your new dedicated server, you will have Memcached, Varnish and Node.js readily available for accelerating your sites. Memcached will be able to lessen the load on the server by lowering the queries your script-driven Internet sites make as it caches database responses. This web accelerator is good for dynamic websites created with WordPress, Joomla™ and similar scripts. Varnish, which is referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy, caches entire websites the first time a new guest opens them. It can be used to accelerate any sort of website since it provides the cached content much faster than the web server any time a customer opens the same webpage again. You could use Node.js for online apps that demand real-time server-client interaction like online chats or booking websites. In contrast to other platforms which wait for the user to fill everything on a form, Node.js processes the info bit by bit as the user fills each and every box, so it operates considerably faster and more efficiently. All dedicated server plans include several gigabytes of memory dedicated to those three web accelerators.
