Learn what precisely web accelerators are and exactly how you are able to make the most of them to boost your web site’s efficiency.
A web accelerator is a software application that speeds up a website generally by caching content and providing it instead of the hosting server. Such programs may be employed for both static and dynamic sites since there are various accelerators that can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The best thing about employing a web accelerator is that a given site will perform noticeably faster without employing more resources. Just the opposite, this type of a website will need a lesser amount of resources to function because the web accelerator will tackle most requests rather than the web server. Contrary to many companies which do not offer web accelerators with their plans or offer only one, we offer three different ones that'll allow you to speed up your Internet sites whatever their type or content.
Web Accelerators in Cloud Web Hosting
We offer 3 of the most well-known web accelerators along with our cloud web hosting solutions and based on what plan you'll select when you sign up, they could already be available or they might be an optional upgrade. Varnish is the most widely used one of them and it could be employed for any sort of Internet site. It caches the pages the first time a site visitor opens them and provides them at a faster speed compared to the web server every time that a website visitor opens them again. Memcached is used to cache API and database calls, so it can easily increase the speed of dynamic websites including online stores, community forums or social networks. Node.js is used for scalable web programs and it works in real-time, which makes it ideal 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 shall run from your Hepsia website hosting CP.
- Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated HostingYou will be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the Internet sites hosted in your semi-dedicated hosting account based on the nature of the site content. Memcached, for instance, caches database requests, therefore it is a superb choice for any script program like WordPress or Joomla™. This way, the database server will not need to process exactly the same request if a number of users open a page with the same content. Varnish is very similar, but it is a general-purpose accelerator because it caches any type of content the first time a guest opens a page. If this web page is opened again by the exact same website visitor, it shall be delivered by Varnish at a much better speed compared to the hosting server. Using this web accelerator shall minimize the load created by your sites tremendously. Last, but not least, Node.js will enable you to produce scalable web applications such as hotel booking websites or chats. Its advantage over similar platforms is that it doesn't wait for a customer to submit a sizable piece of information, but processes whatever the customer is typing in real-time. The three web accelerators are available in the Hepsia CP and you will be able to pick how many instances of every one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they may employ.
- Web Accelerators in VPSAll virtual private servers that are incorporated with the Hepsia CP come with Varnish, Memcached and Node.js already included and you'll get several hundred MBs of dedicated memory for them by default. Varnish, that's also often called an HTTP reverse proxy, caches web pages the first time a guest opens them and provides them in case that visitor opens them again, so the hosting server will not have to perform any action. Because Varnish works much quicker than any server, a website employing this accelerator will function several times faster. Memcached is a platform that caches database calls and responses and it's employed for WordPress, Joomla™ and other script-driven apps that store their content within a database. Node.js is an efficient platform for creating scalable web programs. Any info on an Internet site that uses Node.js is processed in real time, making it a superb choice for dining and accommodation booking sites, web-based chats, web browser games, and so on.
- Web Accelerators in Dedicated HostingMemcached, Varnish and Node.js are available with all dedicated servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and in accordance with the package which you pick, you will also have several gbs of dedicated memory for them. Memcached shall lessen the hosting server load by lowering the number of queries that have to be handled because it caches database calls and responses. You'll be able to use it on every site which uses an API or a database - for instance, any website created with WordPress or Joomla™. Varnish could boost the performance of any kind of Internet site by caching whole pages the first time a visitor opens them. The accelerator delivers the web pages if the very same visitor opens them later and given that it does that much faster than the server, the visitor will be able to browse your site at least a few times faster. For this reason Varnish is occasionally categorised as an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is an advanced platform that will enable you to create booking websites, web chats and other applications in which real-time server-user interaction is needed. It processes the information in little portions as the client fills different boxes and doesn't wait for all boxes to be filled and processed as one large piece of data, which makes Node.js way quicker than similar apps.
