Just what do web accelerators do? What can you do to be able to raise your site's load speed?
A web accelerator is a piece of software that accelerates an Internet site typically by caching content and supplying it instead of the hosting server. Such applications could be employed for both dynamic and static sites because there are different accelerators that can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The advantage of using a web accelerator is that a given site will perform noticeably faster without employing additional system resources. Just the opposite, this type of a website will need significantly less resources to work because the web accelerator will deal with most requests instead of the server. In contrast to many firms which do not offer web accelerators with their packages or offer only 1, we offer 3 different ones that will permit you to speed up your Internet sites irrespective of their style or content.
Web Accelerators in Cloud Hosting
In case you purchase one of our cloud hosting solutions, you shall have three popular web accelerators at your disposal and you'll be able to access them directly using the Hepsia Control Panel that is included with our plans. Varnish is one of the most widely used ones and it can considerably increase the speed of any Internet site because it caches the pages a website visitor opens for the first time and provides them each time that guest opens them again. Because Varnish works considerably faster than any hosting server, the loading speed of any Internet site using the accelerator will raise noticeably. Memcached is employed to cache database and API calls and responses between a website visitor and a web server, so it's much like Varnish, but is employed mainly for database-driven sites. Because the Internet site shall connect to its database way less, the overall hosting server load shall be reduced substantially. The last accelerator, Node.js, is employed for scalable online programs like chats and booking Internet sites because it processes information in real time the instant it is entered on the webpage by the users. Depending on the plan you select, these accelerators might be available or may be an optional upgrade.
- Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated HostingThe Hepsia CP which is provided with our semi-dedicated hosting packages will permit you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your sites. Memcached is among the most well known accelerators because it can speed up any API or database-driven site by caching requests and responses, therefore the hosting server won't have to process identical requests time after time. The platform is perfect for Internet sites created with applications like Joomla™, Mambo or WordPress. Varnish is an efficient accelerator which caches any kind of content and is also frequently called an HTTP reverse proxy. It caches webpages which are opened by a visitor for the first time and delivers them every time that same website visitor opens them again. Varnish can easily accelerate an Internet site several times because it delivers content faster than any hosting server. Node.js is a platform employed for scalable real-time apps such as chats, Internet browser games or social networks. It processes information in smaller pieces as soon as a user types something, as a result it operates much more quickly than similar platforms where users submit big pieces of information that require time to be processed. You could select the number of instances and the dedicated memory for each of the three accelerators using your Control Panel.
- Web Accelerators in VPS Web HostingIf you choose your virtual private server to be set up with the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to use Varnish, Memcached and Node.js - three of the most widely used web accelerators. Varnish caches websites the first time they're visited and delivers them whenever the same person visits them again, which can boost any kind of website several times. Memcached is used for dynamic script apps like Joomla™ and WordPress because it caches database requests and responses, as a consequence the database web server shall not need to process the same webpage each time visitors open it in case the same content should be shown. Node.js is a platform for building real-time applications such as online games and chats. It operates considerably faster than similar platforms since it processes the data in little parts all the time and doesn't wait for users to input a sizable piece of data which shall need more time to be processed. The three web accelerators are provided with all Hepsia-based VPS solutions and come with several hundred megabytes of dedicated memory.
- Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers HostingMemcached, Varnish and Node.js are available with all dedicated servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and in accordance with the plan which you opt for, you shall also have several gigabytes of dedicated memory for them. Memcached shall minimize the web server load by lowering the number of queries that have to be taken care of because it caches database calls and responses. You will be able to use it on any Internet site that uses an API or a database - for example, any website built with WordPress or Joomla™. Varnish could enhance the performance of any type of site by caching whole webpages the first time a visitor opens them. The accelerator delivers the pages if the exact same visitor opens them later on and since it does that way quicker than the web server, the website visitor shall be able to browse your Internet site at least a couple of times faster. That is why Varnish is sometimes referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is an innovative platform that will enable you to build booking websites, web chats and other applications in which real-time server-user interaction is needed. It processes the information in little parts as the client fills different boxes and does not wait for all boxes to be filled and processed as one large piece of information, which makes Node.js much faster than similar applications.
