A web accelerator is a piece of software which speeds up an Internet site generally by caching content and delivering it instead of the hosting server. Such programs may be used for both static and dynamic sites as there are different accelerators which can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The best thing about employing a web accelerator is that a given Internet site shall perform considerably faster without using more resources. Quite the opposite, this type of a website will need much less resources to function because the web accelerator will handle most requests instead of the hosting server. Unlike many firms that do not offer web accelerators with their solutions or offer only 1, we offer three different ones that'll allow you to speed up your sites irrespective of their type or content.
Web Accelerators in Web Hosting
We offer 3 of the most well-known web accelerators with our web hosting
services and based upon what plan you will choose when you sign up, they might already be available or they could be an optional upgrade. Varnish is the most popular one of them and it may be used for any type of Internet site. It caches the pages the first time a website visitor opens them and provides them at a considerably faster speed compared to the hosting server each and every time that a visitor opens them again. Memcached is employed to cache API and database calls, so it can increase the speed of dynamic sites like online stores, forums or social networks. Node.js is employed for scalable web apps and it functions in real-time, which makes it excellent for server-side data processing - chats, browser games, booking portals, and many others. You will be able to choose just how much memory these accelerators will employ and how many instances of each one will run from your Hepsia website hosting CP.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the sites hosted in your semi-dedicated server
account depending on the nature of the site content. Memcached, in particular, caches database requests, so it is a fantastic choice for any script application such as WordPress or Joomla™
. That way, the database web server shall not have to process exactly the same request if multiple users open a webpage with the same content. Varnish is very similar, but it is a general-purpose accelerator as it caches any kind of content the first time a visitor opens a page. If this page is opened again by the very same visitor, it shall be provided by Varnish at a much better speed compared to the hosting server. Using this web accelerator will minimize the load generated by your Internet sites substantially. Last, but not least, Node.js will enable you to create scalable web apps such as hotel booking Internet sites or chats. Its advantage over comparable platforms is that it does not wait for a client to submit a big piece of information, but processes whatever the user 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 every one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they'll use.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers
Memcached, Varnish and Node.js are available with all dedicated servers
ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and based on the package deal that you select, you shall also have several gbs of dedicated memory for them. Memcached shall decrease the web server load by lowering the amount of queries that need to be addressed as it caches database calls and responses. You shall be able to use it on any site which uses an API or a database - as an illustration, any site built with WordPress or Joomla™
. Varnish could improve the performance of any sort of website by caching whole webpages the first time a guest opens them. The accelerator provides the webpages if the very same visitor opens them afterwards and since it does that way quicker than the web server, the website visitor shall be able to browse your website at least a couple of times faster. That is why Varnish is occasionally categorised as an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is a sophisticated platform that'll permit you to build booking sites, web chats and other programs where real-time server-user interaction is necessary. It processes the data in tiny pieces as the client fills different boxes and does not wait for all boxes to be filled and processed as one sizeable chunk of information, which makes Node.js much quicker than similar applications.
