A web accelerator is an application which accelerates an Internet site, normally by caching its content. There are various types of accelerators, but in the general case this sort of applications cache static content or database responses and supply them in lieu of the hosting server, therefore enhancing the performance of a site drastically. The latter is achievable because accelerator applications work faster than a server and not only will a site work better, but the server load will also decrease, which will enable you to run heavy Internet sites with less resources. We offer 3 web accelerators with our hosting solutions, which will permit you to accelerate any type of site. In comparison, most hosting firms do not offer any web accelerators or offer just one, which limits your choice of web apps in the event that you want to use such software.
Web Accelerators in Cloud Website Hosting
Our cloud website hosting plans come with 3 web accelerators which you could use depending on the websites which you would like to run. Memcached is employed to cache database or API calls and responses, which could tremendously improve the functionality of dynamic Internet sites. Varnish is a popular HTTP accelerator which caches webpages and delivers them to the site visitors way quicker than the hosting server after the first time they open them. Node.js is an event-driven platform used for scalable real-time programs for example booking websites. Depending on the hosting plan you choose, these 3 apps could already be included or could be optional upgrades. Regardless, you'll be able to pick how many instances of each of them shall be at your disposal and what amount of memory they should use. These accelerators are provided only by a handful of hosting companies, including ours, and they can easily boost the speed of your web applications considerably.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the sites hosted within your semi-dedicated server account in accordance with the nature of the website content. Memcached, for example, caches database requests, therefore it's a superb choice for any script program such as WordPress or Joomla. That way, the database web server shall not need to process exactly the same request if multiple users open a page with the same content. Varnish is similar, but it's a general-purpose accelerator since it caches any kind of content the first time a visitor opens an Internet site. In case that web page is opened again by the very same visitor, it shall be provided by Varnish at a greater speed compared to the hosting server. Employing this web accelerator shall decrease the load produced by your Internet sites tremendously. Last, but not least, Node.js will enable you to build scalable web apps such as hotel booking websites or chats. Its advantage over comparable platforms is that it does not wait for a customer to submit a large piece of info, but processes whatever the user is entering in real-time. The three web accelerators are available inside the Hepsia Control Panel and you'll be able to choose how many instances of every one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they can use.
Web Accelerators in VPS Servers
We provide Memcached, Node.js and Varnish with all VPS servers which are acquired with the Hepsia Control Panel. Your web server will also feature a few hundred MBs of dedicated memory for these accelerators and the specific amount depends on the plan that you choose. Memcached is employed for script-driven websites as it caches database responses, as a result decreasing the number of queries a script sends to its database. It could be employed for any script like WordPress or Joomla. Node.js is an efficient platform for building web programs such as booking Internet sites and chats. The real-time interaction between end users and a web server is carried out by processing smaller bits of info as soon any user enters anything on the website. In comparison, other platforms await users to enter a whole lot of data before they process it, thus they operate slowly. Varnish is a multi-purpose accelerator which caches entire web pages and provides them instead of the web server at a considerably faster rate. It's also often called an HTTP reverse proxy and it can speed up any type of website.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers
Memcached, Varnish and Node.js are available with all dedicated servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting CP and depending on the package that you pick, you shall also have several gigabytes of dedicated memory for them. Memcached shall minimize the web server load by lowering the amount of queries which need to be handled because it caches database calls and responses. You'll be able to use it on any site which uses an API or a database - as an illustration, any site developed with WordPress or Joomla. Varnish can easily improve the performance of any kind of site by caching whole webpages the first time a visitor opens them. The accelerator provides the web pages if the same visitor opens them later on and considering the fact that it does that way quicker than the server, the website visitor shall be able to browse your site at least a few times faster. For this reason Varnish is often called an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is an innovative platform which will permit you to build booking sites, web chats and other applications where real-time server-user interaction is required. It processes the information in tiny pieces as the client fills different boxes and doesn't wait for all boxes to be filled and processed as one big chunk of info, which makes Node.js much quicker than similar apps.
