A web accelerator is a software application which speeds up a website typically by caching content and providing it instead of the web server. Such apps could be used for both dynamic and static Internet sites because there are a variety of accelerators that can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The benefit of employing a web accelerator is that a given website shall perform significantly faster without using more system resources. On the contrary, such a website will require a lesser amount of resources to function because the web accelerator will tackle most requests instead of the hosting server. Contrary to many firms which don't offer web accelerators with their packages or offer one, we offer three different ones that'll enable you to speed up your websites regardless of their type or content.
Web Accelerators in Shared Web Hosting
In case you purchase one of our shared web hosting
packages, you'll have three popular web accelerators at your disposal and you shall be able to access them directly via the Hepsia CP that is included with our plans. Varnish is one of the most popular ones and it could significantly increase the speed of any site as it caches the pages that a visitor opens for the first time and delivers them each and every time that guest opens them again. Since Varnish functions faster than any web server, the loading speed of any Internet site using the accelerator shall grow significantly. Memcached is employed to cache database and API calls and responses between a site visitor and a server, so it is much like Varnish, but is used mainly for database-driven sites. Since the website shall connect to its database much less, the overall server load shall be decreased considerably. The 3rd accelerator, Node.js, is employed for scalable online programs like chats and booking Internet sites as it processes data in real time the instant it is entered on the website by the users. Based on the plan you select, these accelerators could be available or may be an optional upgrade.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You shall be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the websites hosted within your semi-dedicated hosting
account depending on the nature of the site content. Memcached, for instance, caches database requests, therefore it's a fantastic option for any script program such as WordPress or Joomla™
. That way, the database web server won't need to process exactly the same request if multiple users open a site with the same content. Varnish is comparable, but it's a general-purpose accelerator as it caches any kind of content the first time a visitor opens a page. If that web page is opened again by the same visitor, it shall be delivered by Varnish at a greater speed compared to the server. Employing this web accelerator can reduce the load created by your Internet sites tremendously. Last, but not least, Node.js will allow you to create scalable web applications like hotel booking sites or chats. Its advantage over similar platforms is that it doesn't wait for a customer to submit a substantial piece of data, but processes whatever the user is typing in real-time. The 3 web accelerators are available inside the Hepsia CP and you'll be able to select how many instances of each one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they can use.
Web Accelerators in VPS Hosting
All virtual private servers
which are set up with the Hepsia Control Panel 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 is also referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy, caches webpages the first time a visitor opens them and delivers them if that visitor opens them again, therefore the web server shall not need to perform any action. Due to the fact that Varnish operates considerably faster than any hosting server, a site employing this accelerator will work several times swifter. Memcached is a platform that caches database calls and responses and it's used for WordPress, Joomla™
and other script-driven programs which store their content in a database. Node.js is an efficient platform for creating scalable web applications. Any data on an Internet site that uses Node.js is processed right away, making it a fantastic choice for dining and accommodation booking sites, web-based chats, Internet browser games, etcetera.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Web Hosting
Memcached, Varnish and Node.js are offered with all dedicated servers
ordered with the Hepsia hosting CP and based on the package you select, you shall also have several gigabytes of dedicated memory for them. Memcached can minimize the hosting server load by lowering the number of queries which have to be addressed because it caches database calls and responses. You'll be able to use it on any Internet site which uses an API or a database - for instance, any website designed with WordPress or Joomla™
. Varnish can easily boost the performance of any kind of site by caching whole pages the first time a visitor opens them. The accelerator delivers the web pages if the same visitor opens them later and given that it does that considerably faster than the web server, the visitor shall be able to surf your website at least a couple of times faster. This is why Varnish is oftentimes categorised as an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is an innovative platform that will enable you to develop booking sites, web chats and other apps where real-time server-user interaction is necessary. It processes the data in little bits as the user fills different boxes and does not wait for all boxes to be filled and processed as one large chunk of information, which makes Node.js considerably quicker than similar applications.
