A web accelerator is a server-side application which accelerates a site. Such a piece of software can work in different ways depending on the website content, but in the typical case all such applications cache content and deliver it instead of the hosting server. That's valid for both static and dynamic Internet sites because the cached content may be simple text or database responses and the reward of employing a web accelerator isn't simply the faster loading site, but also the smaller overall load on the hosting server. This way, you could use a lower-end hosting plan that will also cost less while your site visitors will be able to still enjoy fast browsing speeds. Few businesses supply web accelerators with their hosting deals and they frequently offer only one, while we offer three different ones that'll enable you to boost the performance of any sort of website tremendously.
Web Accelerators in Website Hosting
In case you host your Internet sites in a website hosting
account from our company, you shall have 3 popular web accelerators to select from if you would like to improve the sites' efficiency. Memcached is employed for database-driven Internet sites and it caches the calls and requests between a site and its database, so it can decrease the load of such sites drastically. Varnish caches entire webpages the first time a site visitor opens them and delivers them from there on if the same visitor opens them again. It does that much more quickly than the web server, so it can easily boost the loading speed of any site as much as 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time apps that operates on the server and not within the visitor's world-wide web browser. It's employed for holiday accommodation booking, chats and other applications where a lot of data should be processed in real time. The availability of the accelerators depends on the hosting package that you pick - they could come by default or as an upgrade. In both cases, you shall be able to include more instances or more memory for each of them.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you opt for one of our semi-dedicated hosting
plans, you will be able to work with Varnish, Memcached and Node.js - three effective web accelerators. Varnish is a multi-purpose program which caches web pages the first time a site visitor opens them and delivers them instead of the server if the visitor opens them again close to 300% faster. Memcached caches API and database calls and responses so that the web server does not have to process each request, which makes it suitable for database-driven sites, such as ones developed with Joomla™
or WordPress. Node.js is employed to build web applications that work in real-time such as chats or accommodation booking websites and it processes each and every bit of information the moment the user enters it as opposed to waiting for sizeable pieces of info to be accumulated. The Hepsia Control Panel which is included with our semi-dedicated plans will permit you to select how many instances of every accelerator shall work at a time and just how much memory they'll use.
Web Accelerators in VPS
All virtual private servers
which are incorporated with the Hepsia Control Panel come with Varnish, Memcached and Node.js already included and you will have several hundred MBs of dedicated memory for them by default. Varnish, that is also known as an HTTP reverse proxy, caches webpages the first time a visitor opens them and provides them if that visitor opens them again, hence the web server won't need to perform any action. Because Varnish operates much quicker than any server, a site using this accelerator will function several times swifter. Memcached is a platform that caches database calls and responses and it's used for WordPress, Joomla™
and other script-driven programs that store their content in a database. Node.js is a powerful platform for building scalable web applications. Any data on a site which uses Node.js is processed instantly, making it a great choice for dining and accommodation booking sites, web-based chats, Internet browser games, and so on.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Hosting
Memcached, Node.js and Varnish are available by default with all our dedicated servers
which are ordered with Hepsia as the website hosting Control Panel. These three web accelerators include several gigabytes of dedicated memory and you can employ them to speed up any type of site. Memcached can substantially decrease the load on the server if you have script-driven Internet sites because it caches database responses, thus it decreases the number of database queries that the web server has to tackle. Node.js shall allow you to develop scalable programs with real-time user-server interaction like chats or dining booking websites. Its advantage over similar platforms is that it processes info the moment the end user enters it, so all the info is handled quicker and in small pieces. Varnish caches whole webpages the first time a visitor opens them and delivers them each time the same guest opens them again, which makes it a universal accelerator for any type of Internet sites. As it operates faster than any hosting server, it can easily speed up a site at least several times and because of this, Varnish is among the most widely used web accelerators around.
