A web accelerator is a server-side program which accelerates an Internet site. Such a piece of software may work in different ways depending upon the website content, but in the typical case all such programs cache content and deliver it instead of the hosting server. That is valid for both static and dynamic sites because the cached content could be simple text or database responses and the reward of employing a web accelerator is not only the faster loading Internet site, but also the minimized overall load on the server. This way, you could use a lower-end hosting solution that'll also cost less while your website visitors can still enjoy fast browsing speeds. Several companies provide web accelerators with their hosting packages and they frequently offer only one, while we offer 3 different ones which will enable you to enhance the performance of any type of site tremendously.
Web Accelerators in Shared Hosting
Our shared hosting plans include 3 web accelerators that you could employ depending on the websites that you'd like to run. Memcached is used to cache database or API calls and responses, which can significantly enhance the efficiency of dynamic Internet sites. Varnish is a popular HTTP accelerator which caches web pages and delivers them to the site visitors much faster than the server after the first time they open them. Node.js is an event-driven platform employed for scalable real-time apps for example booking websites. Depending upon the web hosting solution you pick, these 3 applications may already be included or might be optional upgrades. Either way, you will be able to choose how many instances of each of them will be at your disposal and what amount of memory they ought to employ. These accelerators are offered only by several Internet hosting companies, including ours, and they can raise the speed of your web programs considerably.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers
The Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with our semi-dedicated server packages will allow you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your sites. Memcached is one of the most well known accelerators because it can easily speed up any API or database-driven Internet site by caching requests and responses, therefore the hosting server won't have to process identical requests again and again. The platform is suitable for websites designed with applications like Joomla, Mambo or WordPress. Varnish is a powerful accelerator which caches any type of content and is also often called an HTTP reverse proxy. It caches pages which are opened by a site visitor for the first time and provides them every time that very same site visitor opens them again. Varnish can certainly accelerate a website several times since it delivers content quicker than any server. Node.js is a platform used for scalable real-time programs like chats, Internet browser games or social networks. It processes info in little pieces the moment a user types something, so it functions faster than similar platforms in which users submit large pieces of information which require time to be processed. You could choose the number of instances and the dedicated memory for each and every one of the three accelerators via your Control Panel.
Web Accelerators in VPS Servers
We offer Memcached, Node.js and Varnish with all VPS servers which are ordered with the Hepsia CP. Your server shall also come with a few hundred MBs of dedicated memory for these accelerators and the actual amount depends on the package that you choose. Memcached is employed for script-driven websites as it caches database responses, as a result lowering the number of queries which a script sends to its database. It can be used for any script such as WordPress or Joomla. Node.js is a highly effective platform for creating web apps like booking sites and chats. The real-time interaction between users and a hosting server is performed by processing little parts of information as soon any user inputs anything on the webpage. In contrast, other platforms wait for customers to input a considerable amount of data before they process it, consequently they operate more slowly. Varnish is a multi-purpose accelerator which caches whole pages and provides them instead of the hosting server at a much faster rate. It is also often called an HTTP reverse proxy and it can easily speed up any type of site.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers
In the event that you acquire a dedicated server from us and you opt for Hepsia as the hosting CP, you will be able to employ Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your sites. All solutions include several gigabytes of memory dedicated to these accelerators and the exact amount depends on the package deal that you select. Node.js is used for scalable online apps such as browser games or hotel booking and it processes the data instantly as the client enters it, which makes it much faster than similar platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you use it for a script-driven Internet site, not only will the site work faster, but also the load on the hosting server will decline since there will be fewer database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it's not at all limited to databases. Rather, it caches entire webpages once a guest opens them and delivers them instead of the hosting server every time the same visitor opens them later. Because Varnish processes web requests considerably faster than any web server, the performance of an Internet site using this accelerator could increase as much as 300%.
