Determine what exactly web accelerators are and the way you are able to take advantage of them to improve your site’s overall performance.
A web accelerator is a server-side app that quickens a site. Such a piece of software could operate in different ways depending on the site content, but in the typical case all such apps cache content and deliver it instead of the hosting server. This is valid for both dynamic and static websites as the cached content could be simple text or database responses and the reward of using a web accelerator is not only the faster loading website, but also the decreased overall load on the web server. This way, you'll be able to employ a lower-end hosting solution that will also cost less while your site visitors will be able to still enjoy high browsing speeds. Several companies supply web accelerators with their hosting deals and they typically offer just one, while we offer three different ones that'll enable you to boost the performance of any kind of website considerably.
Web Accelerators in Cloud Hosting
In case you host your Internet sites in a cloud hosting account from our company, you will have three popular web accelerators to pick from if you'd like to enhance the sites' functionality. Memcached is used for database-driven sites and it caches the calls and requests between an Internet site and its database, so it can easily reduce the load of such sites considerably. Varnish caches whole web pages the first time a visitor opens them and provides them from there on if the same guest opens them again. It does that much faster than the web server, so it can boost the loading speed of any website up to 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time programs that works on the hosting server and not within the visitor's browser. It is employed for accommodation booking, chats and other apps where lots of data has to be processed in real time. The availability of the accelerators depends on the hosting plan which you select - they could come by default or as an upgrade. In both cases, you'll be able to add more instances or more memory for each one of them.
- Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated ServersThe Hepsia Control Panel which is provided with our semi-dedicated server packages shall permit you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your websites. Memcached is among the most well known accelerators because it can effortlessly accelerate any API or database-driven Internet site by caching requests and responses, thus the web server shall not have to process identical requests time and time again. The platform is suitable for websites designed with applications such as Joomla™, Mambo or WordPress. Varnish is an efficient accelerator which caches any sort of content and is also often called an HTTP reverse proxy. It caches webpages that are opened by a website visitor for the first time and delivers them each and every time that same site visitor opens them again. Varnish can speed up a site several times since it delivers content quicker than any hosting server. Node.js is a platform used for scalable real-time applications such as chats, Internet browser games or social networks. It processes information in little bits as soon as a user enters something, as a result it operates considerably faster than similar platforms in which users submit large portions of information which need time to be processed. You'll be able to pick the number of instances and the dedicated memory for each of the 3 accelerators using your Control Panel.
- Web Accelerators in VPS ServersIf you obtain a VPS server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you shall be able to employ Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your Internet sites. All 3 accelerators are incorporated within our packages by default and feature dedicated memory of several hundred megabytes. Node.js is used to create scalable programs where real-time interaction is needed - booking sites, online flash games, chats, etcetera. It processes the info in smaller portions as the user is entering it, thus it functions much faster than other platforms that wait for the users to enter one massive part of info. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator which operates as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it in the event that the same visitor opens the same page again, which can easily speed any website several times as Varnish works quicker than any server. Memcached is used for caching API and database responses, consequently it is ideal for script-driven websites such as WordPress and Joomla™. This web accelerator will be able to lessen the load on your server as it will decrease the number of database queries that your sites make.
- Web Accelerators in Dedicated ServersIn case you obtain a dedicated server from our firm and you opt for Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel, you shall be able to employ Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your sites. All plans come with several gigabytes of memory dedicated to those accelerators and the exact amount depends on the package deal that you choose. Node.js is used for scalable online apps including browser games or hotel booking and it processes the info right away as the user enters it, which makes it considerably faster than similar platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you use it for a script-driven site, not simply will the site work faster, but also the load on the hosting server will minimize since there will be fewer database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it's not at all limited to databases. Instead, it caches whole web pages once a visitor opens them and delivers them instead of the server each time the same visitor opens them later on. As Varnish processes web requests much quicker than any hosting server, the overall performance of an Internet site using this accelerator can increase around 300%.
