Know what precisely web accelerators are and the way you are able to take full advantage of them to improve your website’s efficiency.
A web accelerator is a program which quickens a site, typically by caching its content. There are different kinds of accelerators, but in the general case this kind of apps cache static content or database responses and supply them instead of the web server, hence improving the performance of a website greatly. The latter is possible because accelerator programs work faster than a server and not simply will a website operate better, but the server load shall also minimize, which will permit you to run heavy Internet sites with less system resources. We provide 3 web accelerators with our hosting plans, which will enable you to increase the speed of any type of site. In comparison, most Internet hosting providers do not offer any web accelerators or provide one, which limits your choice of web apps in the event that you would like to use such software.
Web Accelerators in Cloud Hosting
If you buy one of our cloud hosting packages, you will have three popular web accelerators at your disposal and you'll be able to access them directly via the Hepsia CP that is included with our plans. Varnish is one of the most popular ones and it can considerably accelerate any Internet site as it caches the pages a website visitor opens for the first time and delivers them every time that visitor opens them again. Since Varnish works considerably faster than any web server, the loading speed of any website using the accelerator shall raise noticeably. Memcached is employed to cache database and API calls and responses between a site visitor and a server, so it's comparable to Varnish, but is employed predominantly for database-driven Internet sites. Because the site will connect to its database a lot less, the overall hosting server load will be minimized notably. The last accelerator, Node.js, is employed for scalable online applications such as chats and booking sites as it processes information in real time the instant it is entered on the webpage by the users. Dependant upon the plan you pick, these accelerators might be available or might be an optional upgrade.
- Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated ServersYou'll be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the sites hosted within your semi-dedicated server account depending on the nature of the website content. Memcached, for instance, caches database requests, therefore it's a great choice for any script application like WordPress or Joomla™. This way, the database web server won't have to process the same request if a number of users open a website with the same content. Varnish is similar, but it is a general-purpose accelerator since it caches any kind of content the first time a visitor opens a site. If this web page is opened again by the very same website visitor, it'll be provided by Varnish at a much higher speed compared to the hosting server. Employing this web accelerator shall decrease the load generated by your websites significantly. Last, but not least, Node.js will enable you to produce scalable web apps like hotel booking websites or chats. Its advantage over similar platforms is that it does not wait for a client to submit a large piece of info, but processes whatever the customer is typing in real-time. The three web accelerators are available within the Hepsia CP and you will be able to pick how many instances of each one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they'll employ.
- Web Accelerators in VPS ServersWe provide Memcached, Node.js and Varnish with all VPS servers that are purchased with the Hepsia Control Panel. Your web server shall also feature several hundred MBs of dedicated memory for these accelerators and the particular amount would be determined by the package deal that you pick. Memcached is employed for script-driven websites since it caches database responses, as a result reducing the amount of queries that a script sends to its database. It could be used for any script such as WordPress or Joomla™. Node.js is a highly effective platform for creating web apps such as booking Internet sites and chats. The real-time interaction between users and a hosting server is performed by processing little bits of info as soon any user enters anything on the webpage. In comparison, other platforms wait for customers to input plenty of information before they process it, as a result they work slowly. Varnish is a multi-purpose accelerator that caches whole pages and delivers them instead of the hosting server at a much faster rate. It is also referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy and it can speed up any kind of website.
- Web Accelerators in Dedicated ServersMemcached, Node.js and Varnish are provided by default with all of our dedicated servers that are ordered with Hepsia as the Internet hosting CP. These 3 web accelerators include several gbs of dedicated memory and you could employ them to speed up any kind of site. Memcached can substantially lessen the load on the web server if you have script-driven sites as it caches database responses, thus it lessens the amount of database queries the web server has to deal with. Node.js shall allow you to build scalable applications with real-time user-server interaction like chats or dining booking Internet sites. Its advantage over comparable platforms is that it processes info the instant the end user enters it, so all the info is handled faster and in small parts. Varnish caches whole pages the first time a site visitor opens them and delivers them each time the same guest opens them again, that makes it a universal accelerator for any sort of websites. Since it functions quicker than any web server, it can easily speed up a site at least several times and for that reason, Varnish is amongst the most popular web accelerators around.
