A web accelerator is a server-side application that quickens a site. Such a piece of software may operate 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. This is valid for both static and dynamic Internet sites as the cached content could be simple text or database responses and the benefit of employing a web accelerator isn't just the faster loading site, but also the minimized overall load on the machine. That way, you may employ a lower-end hosting plan which will also cost less while your website visitors could still enjoy superior browsing speeds. Handful of businesses provide web accelerators with their hosting plans and they usually offer only 1, while we offer 3 different ones which will allow you to enhance the performance of any kind of site significantly.
Web Accelerators in Shared Web Hosting
Our shared web hosting plans include 3 web accelerators which you will be able to use depending on the Internet sites that you'd like to run. Memcached is employed to cache database or API calls and responses, which can drastically enhance the functionality of dynamic websites. Varnish is a popular HTTP accelerator which caches webpages and provides them to the website visitors faster than the hosting server after the first time they open them. Node.js is an event-driven platform employed for scalable real-time programs including booking sites. Based on the hosting solution you pick, these 3 programs might already be included or might be optional upgrades. Regardless, you will be able to pick how many instances of each one of them will be at your disposal and how much memory they should use. These accelerators are provided only by a handful of hosting providers, including ours, and they can increase the speed of your web programs drastically.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You'll be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the sites hosted inside your semi-dedicated hosting account based on the nature of the site content. Memcached, for example, caches database requests, therefore it is a superb choice for any script application like WordPress or Joomla. That way, the database hosting server won't have to process exactly the same request if multiple users open a page with the same content. Varnish is similar, but it's a general-purpose accelerator as it caches any kind of content the first time a website visitor opens a site. In case this page is opened again by the same website visitor, it shall be delivered by Varnish at a much higher speed compared to the web server. Employing this web accelerator will lessen the load produced by your sites considerably. Last, but not least, Node.js shall enable you to create scalable web apps like hotel booking sites or chats. Its advantage over very similar platforms is that it doesn't wait for a client to submit a sizable piece of data, but processes whatever the customer is inputting in real-time. The three web accelerators are available in the Hepsia Control Panel and you will 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 VPS Hosting
In the event that you get a virtual private server with the Hepsia CP, you'll be able to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your websites. All three accelerators are included within our packages by default and offer dedicated memory of a few hundred MBs. Node.js is used to create scalable apps where real-time interaction is required - booking sites, online games, chats, and so on. It processes the info in small bits as the user is entering it, as a result it works more quickly than other platforms which wait for the end users to enter one massive part of info. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator that operates as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it in case the same visitor opens the same webpage again, which can speed any website several times since Varnish operates more quickly than any web server. Memcached is used for caching API and database responses, therefore it's appropriate for script-driven websites like WordPress and Joomla. This web accelerator can easily decrease the load on your web server as it will reduce the number of database queries which your Internet sites make.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Web Hosting
In case you get a dedicated server from us and you pick Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel, you will be able to use Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your sites. All plans include several gigabytes of memory dedicated to these accelerators and the actual amount depends on the package deal that you select. Node.js is employed for scalable online applications like browser games or hotel booking and it processes the info right away as the client enters it, which makes it considerably quicker than very similar platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you employ it for a script-driven Internet site, not simply will the site work faster, but also the load on the server will decrease because there shall be less database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it's not at all limited to databases. Instead, it caches whole web pages once a guest opens them and delivers them instead of the server each time the same visitor opens them later. Since Varnish processes web requests considerably faster than any hosting server, the performance of an Internet site using this accelerator can increase nearly 300%.
