Understand what specifically web accelerators are and just how it is possible to take full advantage of them to supercharge your web site’s overall performance.
A web accelerator is a software that quickens a site, usually by caching its content. There are different types of accelerators, but in the typical case this kind of programs cache static content or database responses and provide them in place of the server, as a consequence improving the performance of an Internet site significantly. The latter can be done because accelerator apps work faster than a web server and not simply will a site function better, but the server load shall also decrease, which will permit you to run heavy sites with less system resources. We provide three web accelerators with our hosting solutions, which will enable you to accelerate any sort of Internet site. In comparison, most hosting companies don't provide any web accelerators or offer only 1, which limits your choice of web apps in the event that you want to use this type of software.
Web Accelerators in Shared Web Hosting
When you get one of our shared web hosting solutions, you shall have 3 well-known web accelerators at your disposal and you shall be able to access them directly via the Hepsia CP that comes with our solutions. Varnish is one of the most widely used ones and it could significantly increase the speed of any Internet site as it caches the web pages which a visitor opens for the first time and delivers them each time that visitor opens them again. Given that Varnish functions way quicker than any web server, the loading speed of any site using the accelerator shall grow substantially. Memcached is employed to cache database and API calls and responses between a website visitor and a server, so it is much like Varnish, but is employed largely for database-driven sites. Because the site will connect to its database significantly less, the overall web server load shall be reduced considerably. The third accelerator, Node.js, is used for scalable online programs like chats and booking Internet sites since it processes info in real time as soon as it is entered on the site by the users. Depending on the plan you choose, these accelerators may be available or could be an optional upgrade.
- Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated HostingYou shall be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the websites hosted inside your semi-dedicated hosting account based on the nature of the website content. Memcached, in particular, caches database requests, so it is an excellent option for any script app such as WordPress or Joomla™. This way, the database web server shall not have to process the exact same request if multiple users open a page with the same content. Varnish is very similar, but it's a general-purpose accelerator since it caches any type of content the first time a website visitor opens a site. In case this page is opened again by the exact same guest, it will be delivered by Varnish at a much better speed compared to the hosting server. Using this web accelerator shall decrease the load produced by your Internet sites considerably. Last, but not least, Node.js shall enable you to create scalable web programs such as hotel booking websites or chats. Its advantage over very similar platforms is that it doesn't wait for a user to submit a big piece of information, but processes whatever the customer is typing in real-time. The 3 web accelerators are available within the Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to select how many instances of each one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they may use.
- Web Accelerators in VPSIn case you choose your virtual private server to be integrated with the Hepsia Control Panel, you shall be able to use Varnish, Memcached and Node.js - 3 of the most widely used web accelerators. Varnish caches websites the first time they are visited and delivers them whenever the same person visits them again, which can accelerate any type of website several times. Memcached is employed for dynamic script apps for instance Joomla™ and WordPress since it caches database requests and responses, as a result the database server will not need to process the exact same page each and every time guests open it if the same content should be displayed. Node.js is a platform for developing real-time programs such as online games and chats. It operates faster than similar platforms since it processes the information in little bits all the time and does not wait for users to enter a substantial piece of data that will need more time to be processed. The 3 web accelerators are offered with all Hepsia-based VPS solutions and feature several hundred MBs of dedicated memory.
- Web Accelerators in Dedicated HostingMemcached, Node.js and Varnish are offered by default with all our dedicated servers that are ordered with Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel. These three web accelerators feature several gbs of dedicated memory and you can employ them to speed up any sort of website. Memcached can substantially decrease the load on the web server if you have script-driven Internet sites as it caches database responses, therefore it lessens the amount of database queries the hosting server has to deal with. Node.js shall allow you to develop scalable apps with real-time user-server interaction including chats or dining booking Internet sites. Its advantage over comparable platforms is that it processes info as soon as the end user enters it, so all the information is handled swifter and in small bits. Varnish caches entire webpages the first time a website visitor opens them and delivers them each and every time the same guest opens them again, which makes it a universal accelerator for any kind of websites. Since it functions faster than any hosting server, it can easily speed up an Internet site at least several times and due to this fact, Varnish is amongst the most widely used web accelerators available on the market.
