What exactly do web accelerators do? What can you do in order to increase your Internet site's load speed?
A web accelerator is an application which quickens a website, normally by caching its content. There are many types of accelerators, but in the common case this kind of apps cache static content or database responses and supply them in place of the server, thus enhancing the performance of a website considerably. The latter is achievable because accelerator programs work faster than a web server and not simply will an Internet site operate better, but the server load shall also lessen, which will enable you to run heavy websites with less resources. We provide three web accelerators with our hosting plans, which will permit you to speed up any kind of Internet site. In comparison, most website hosting companies do not offer any web accelerators or provide only 1, which limits your choice of web applications if you would like to employ this kind of software.
Web Accelerators in Cloud Web Hosting
We provide three of the most well-known web accelerators together with our cloud web hosting services and based on what plan you'll choose when you sign up, they could already be available or they could be an optional upgrade. Varnish is the most popular one of them and it can be used for any type of site. It caches the pages the first time a site 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 boost the speed of dynamic sites like online stores, discussion boards or social networks. Node.js is used for scalable web programs and it works 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 select what amount of memory these accelerators shall use and how many instances of each one shall run from your Hepsia web hosting CP.
- Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated HostingThe Hepsia CP that is provided with our semi-dedicated hosting plans shall allow you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your Internet sites. Memcached is one of the most widely used accelerators because it can effortlessly increase the speed of any API or database-driven website by caching requests and responses, consequently the hosting server will not have to process identical requests time after time. The platform is ideal for websites designed with apps such as Joomla™, Mambo or WordPress. Varnish is an efficient accelerator that caches any type of content and is also known as an HTTP reverse proxy. It caches webpages that are opened by a site visitor for the first time and delivers them every time that very same guest opens them again. Varnish can certainly speed up a website several times as it delivers content faster than any hosting server. Node.js is a platform employed for scalable real-time applications such as chats, Internet browser games or social networks. It processes information in small parts the instant a user types anything, so it works faster than similar platforms in which users submit big pieces of data that need time to be processed. You could choose the number of instances and the dedicated memory for each of the 3 accelerators through your Control Panel.
- Web Accelerators in VPS HostingIf you obtain a virtual private server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your sites. All 3 accelerators are incorporated in our packages by default and feature dedicated memory of several hundred MBs. Node.js is used to build scalable programs where real-time interaction is needed - booking websites, online flash games, chats, etcetera. It processes the data in smaller portions as the end user is entering it, therefore it functions much faster than other platforms which wait for the end users to submit one large piece of information. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator that functions as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it in the event that the same visitor opens the same webpage again, which can speed any Internet site several times since Varnish functions more quickly than any server. Memcached is employed for caching API and database responses, so it's appropriate for script-driven sites such as WordPress and Joomla™. This web accelerator can lessen the load on your server since it shall decrease the number of database queries which your websites make.
- Web Accelerators in Dedicated Web HostingIn the event that you obtain a dedicated server from our firm and you choose Hepsia as the hosting CP, you shall be able to employ Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your sites. All solutions include several gigabytes of memory dedicated to these accelerators and the specific amount depends on the package deal that you select. Node.js is employed for scalable online programs like browser games or hotel booking and it processes the info in real time as the client enters it, which makes it much faster than comparable platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you use it for a script-driven website, not simply will the Internet site speed up, but also the load on the server will reduce because there shall be a lesser amount of database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it's not limited to databases. Rather, it caches whole websites once a website visitor opens them and delivers them instead of the web server each time the same visitor opens them later. As Varnish processes web requests much faster than any web server, the efficiency of a site using this accelerator can increase as much as 300%.
