A web accelerator is a server-side app that speeds up an Internet site. Such a piece of software could function in different ways depending upon the website content, but in the typical case all such programs cache content and deliver it instead of the web server. That is valid for both static and dynamic sites as the cached content could be simple text or database responses and the advantage of employing a web accelerator isn't only the faster loading site, but also the lessened overall load on the hosting server. This way, you can employ a lower-end hosting plan that'll also cost less while your website visitors could still enjoy superior browsing speeds. Several service providers offer web accelerators with their hosting packages and they typically offer just one, while we offer 3 different ones that'll permit you to enhance the performance of any sort of site tremendously.
Web Accelerators in Shared Hosting
We offer three of the most popular web accelerators with our shared hosting solutions and based on what plan you will pick when you sign up, they could already be available or they may be an optional upgrade. Varnish is the most widely used one of them and it can be employed for any kind of site. It caches the web pages the first time a visitor opens them and provides them at a much faster speed compared to the server every time that a website visitor opens them again. Memcached is used to cache API and database calls, so it can boost the speed of dynamic websites such as online stores, community forums or social networks. Node.js is employed for scalable web programs and it functions in real-time, which makes it suitable for server-side data processing - chats, browser games, booking portals, etc. You'll be able to select what amount of memory these accelerators will use and how many instances of each one shall run from your Hepsia web hosting CP.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the websites hosted inside your semi-dedicated server account in accordance with the nature of the site content. Memcached, in particular, caches database requests, therefore it's a fantastic choice for any script application such as WordPress or Joomla. This way, the database web server shall not have to process the same request if a number of users open a webpage with the same content. Varnish is comparable, but it is a general-purpose accelerator since it caches any kind of content the first time a website visitor opens a page. In case this page is opened again by the same visitor, it shall be delivered by Varnish at a much higher speed compared to the hosting server. Employing this web accelerator can minimize the load generated by your sites substantially. Last, but not least, Node.js shall enable you to create scalable web apps such as hotel booking sites or chats. Its advantage over comparable platforms is that it does not wait for a client to submit a big piece of info, but processes whatever the customer is typing in real-time. The 3 web accelerators are available inside the Hepsia CP and you shall be able to pick how many instances of every one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they can use.
Web Accelerators in VPS Servers
In case you obtain a VPS server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you shall be able to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your websites. All three accelerators are included inside our packages by default and offer dedicated memory of several hundred MBs. Node.js is employed to develop scalable programs where real-time interaction is needed - booking sites, online games, chats, etc. It processes the data in small parts as the user is entering it, as a result it operates much faster than other platforms which wait for the end users to input one sizeable piece of information. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator which works as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it when the same guest opens the same page again, which can certainly speed any site several times since Varnish functions faster than any server. Memcached is employed for caching API and database responses, consequently it is ideal for script-driven Internet sites like WordPress and Joomla. This web accelerator will be able to decrease the load on your web server since it will lower the amount of database queries your websites make.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers
Memcached, Node.js and Varnish are available by default with all of our dedicated servers which are ordered with Hepsia as the web hosting Control Panel. These three web accelerators feature several gigabytes of dedicated memory and you could employ them to speed up any type of site. Memcached can substantially reduce the load on the hosting server if you have script-driven Internet sites as it caches database responses, therefore it decreases the number of database queries which the web server has to handle. Node.js shall enable you to develop scalable programs with real-time user-server interaction including chats or dining booking sites. Its advantage over similar platforms is that it processes information as soon as the user enters it, so all the data is handled swifter and in small pieces. Varnish caches entire webpages the first time a visitor opens them and provides them each and every time the same guest opens them again, which makes it a universal accelerator for any kind of sites. Because it operates faster than any web server, it can easily speed up an Internet site at least several times and for that reason, Varnish is among the most popular web accelerators around.
