Find out what exactly web accelerators are and in what ways you'll be able to benefit from them to enhance your website’s performance.
A web accelerator is a server-side program that speeds up an Internet site. Such a piece of software can operate in different ways based on the site content, but in the typical situation all such programs cache content and deliver it instead of the server. That's valid for both static and dynamic Internet sites since the cached content could be simple text or database responses and the benefit of using a web accelerator is not simply the faster loading site, but also the decreased overall load on the machine. That way, you may employ a lower-end hosting plan which will also cost less while your site visitors could still enjoy superior browsing speeds. Handful of firms offer web accelerators with their hosting plans and they frequently offer just one, while we offer 3 different ones that'll allow you to boost the performance of any type of website significantly.
Web Accelerators in Website Hosting
When you buy one of our website hosting
plans, you'll have 3 well-known web accelerators at your disposal and you shall be able to access them directly through the Hepsia Control Panel which is included with our solutions. Varnish is one of the most popular ones and it could significantly speed up any Internet site since it caches the web pages which a visitor opens for the first time and delivers them every time that visitor opens them again. Given that Varnish functions noticeably faster than any hosting server, the loading speed of any Internet site using the accelerator shall increase considerably. Memcached is employed to cache database and API calls and responses between a site visitor and a server, so it's much like Varnish, but is employed largely for database-driven Internet sites. Since the Internet site shall connect to its database significantly less, the overall hosting server load shall be reduced significantly. The 3rd accelerator, Node.js, is used for scalable online programs including chats and booking websites since it processes information in real time the moment it is entered on the site by the users. Depending on the package you pick, these accelerators may be available or may be an optional upgrade.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you pick one of our semi-dedicated hosting
solutions, you shall be able to take advantage of Varnish, Memcached and Node.js - 3 effective web accelerators. Varnish is a multi-purpose application that caches websites the first time a website visitor opens them and provides them instead of the web server if the site visitor opens them again nearly 300% more quickly. Memcached caches API and database calls and responses so the server does not need to process every request, which makes it perfect for database-driven websites, for example ones developed with Joomla™
or WordPress. Node.js is used to produce web programs which operate in real-time such as chats or accommodation booking websites and it processes every bit of information as soon as the user enters it rather than waiting for big portions of data to be accumulated. The Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with our semi-dedicated packages shall allow you to choose how many instances of each and every accelerator will work at a time and what amount of memory they will use.
Web Accelerators in VPS Hosting
We provide Memcached, Node.js and Varnish with all virtual private servers
that are obtained with the Hepsia Control Panel. Your web server shall also come with a few hundred MBs of dedicated memory for these accelerators and the specific amount depends on the package that you select. Memcached is employed for script-driven sites since it caches database responses, thus reducing the number of queries that a script sends to its database. It may be employed for any script including WordPress or Joomla™
. Node.js is an efficient platform for building web apps for example booking Internet sites and chats. The real-time interaction between end users and a hosting server is performed by processing small bits of info as soon any user inputs anything on the webpage. In contrast, other platforms wait for users to enter a lot of information before they process it, therefore they work slowly. Varnish is a multi-purpose accelerator which caches entire pages and delivers them instead of the server at a considerably faster rate. It is also referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy and it can effortlessly speed up any sort of website.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Web Hosting
Memcached, Varnish and Node.js come with all dedicated servers
ordered with the Hepsia hosting CP and in accordance with the package deal you select, you shall also have several gigabytes of dedicated memory for them. Memcached can decrease the hosting server load by lowering the amount of queries which have to be taken care of because it caches database calls and responses. You will be able to use it on any site which uses an API or a database - as an example, any website built with WordPress or Joomla™
. Varnish could boost the performance of any kind of Internet site by caching whole webpages the first time a guest opens them. The accelerator delivers the webpages if the exact same visitor opens them afterwards and considering the fact that it does that much quicker than the server, the visitor will be able to surf your site at least several times faster. That is why Varnish is oftentimes called an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is a sophisticated platform that will allow you to create booking websites, web chats and other apps in which real-time server-user interaction is required. It processes the data in tiny bits as the client fills different boxes and doesn't wait for all boxes to be filled and processed as one substantial piece of info, which makes Node.js considerably quicker than similar apps.
