Understand what precisely web accelerators are and ways in which you'll be able to take full advantage of them to enhance your site’s performance.
A web accelerator is a software that quickens an Internet site, typically by caching its content. There are many kinds of accelerators, but in the general case this sort of apps cache static content or database responses and supply them instead of the hosting server, hence improving the performance of an Internet site drastically. The latter is achievable because accelerator apps work faster than a server and not simply will a website function better, but the server load will also decline, which will allow you to run heavy sites with less resources. We offer 3 web accelerators with our hosting plans, which will allow you to speed up any kind of site. In comparison, most website hosting businesses do not provide any web accelerators or offer only one, which limits your choice of web applications in the event that you'd like to use such software.
Web Accelerators in Hosting
If you purchase one of our hosting packages, you will have three well-known web accelerators at your disposal and you'll be able to access them directly via the Hepsia CP which is included with our packages. Varnish is one of the most popular ones and it can considerably increase the speed of any website since it caches the pages that a website visitor opens for the first time and delivers them each and every time that website visitor opens them again. Because Varnish operates considerably faster than any web server, the loading speed of any site using the accelerator will improve significantly. Memcached is used to cache database and API calls and responses between an Internet site visitor and a web server, so it's comparable to Varnish, but is used predominantly for database-driven sites. Since the website will connect to its database much less, the overall web server load shall be minimized considerably. The last accelerator, Node.js, is employed for scalable online programs like chats and booking Internet sites because it processes info in real time the moment it is entered on the website by the users. Based on the package you choose, these accelerators might be available or may be an optional upgrade.
- Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated HostingYou'll 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 website 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 will not need to process the very same request if many users open a webpage with the same content. Varnish is similar, but it is a general-purpose accelerator since it caches any type of content the first time a guest opens an Internet site. In case this webpage is opened again by the same guest, it'll be provided by Varnish at a much better speed compared to the web server. Using this web accelerator shall reduce the load created by your sites substantially. Last, but not least, Node.js will allow you to produce scalable web applications like hotel booking websites or chats. Its advantage over very similar platforms is that it does not wait for a client to submit a big piece of information, but processes whatever the client is entering in real-time. The 3 web accelerators are available within the Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to choose how many instances of each one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they can employ.
- Web Accelerators in VPSIn case you get a virtual private server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to employ Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your sites. All three accelerators are incorporated in our solutions by default and offer dedicated memory of a few hundred megabytes. Node.js is used to develop scalable programs where real-time interaction is necessary - booking Internet sites, online games, chats, etc. It processes the information in little bits as the user is entering it, as a result it functions faster than other platforms which wait for the users to input one big bit of information. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator which functions as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it if the same site visitor opens the same website again, which can speed any Internet site several times as Varnish works faster than any server. Memcached is employed for caching API and database responses, so it's ideal for script-driven Internet sites such as WordPress and Joomla™. This web accelerator can easily minimize the load on your web server because it will decrease the number of database queries that your sites make.
- Web Accelerators in Dedicated HostingMemcached, Node.js and Varnish are available by default with all our dedicated servers which are ordered with Hepsia as the web hosting CP. These three web accelerators include several gigabytes of dedicated memory and you can use them to speed up any kind of Internet site. Memcached can drastically reduce the load on the server if you have script-driven sites because it caches database responses, therefore it minimizes the number of database queries which the server has to deal with. Node.js will allow you to develop scalable applications with real-time user-server interaction including chats or dining booking sites. Its advantage over similar platforms is that it processes data the moment the end user enters it, so all the info is taken care of quicker and in small pieces. Varnish caches entire Internet pages the first time a website visitor opens them and delivers them each time the same website visitor opens them again, which makes it a universal accelerator for any sort of Internet sites. Since it operates quicker than any server, it can speed up a website at least several times and due to this fact, Varnish is among the most widely used web accelerators on the market.
