A web accelerator is a software that speeds up a site, usually by caching its content. There are different kinds of accelerators, but in the common case such apps cache static content or database responses and supply them instead of the server, therefore increasing the performance of a site considerably. The latter is possible because accelerator programs work faster than a web server and not simply will a site work better, but the server load shall also decrease, which will allow you to run heavy Internet sites with less system resources. We provide three web accelerators with our hosting plans, which will allow you to increase the speed of any type of Internet site. In comparison, most web hosting providers do not provide any web accelerators or provide only 1, which limits your choice of web applications in case you'd like to use this kind of software.
Web Accelerators in Cloud Web Hosting
We provide three of the most well-known web accelerators with our cloud web hosting
services and depending on what plan you will pick when you sign up, they may already be available or they might be an optional upgrade. Varnish is the most widely used one of them and it may be employed for any sort of Internet site. It caches the pages the first time a website visitor opens them and delivers them at a much faster speed compared to the server each and every time that a website visitor opens them again. Memcached is used to cache API and database calls, so it can boost the speed of dynamic sites such as online stores, discussion boards or social networks. Node.js is used for scalable web programs and it functions in real-time, which makes it suitable for server-side data processing - chats, browser games, booking portals, and many others. You will be able to choose the amount of memory these accelerators shall employ and how many instances of each and every one shall run from your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you select one of our semi-dedicated hosting
packages, you shall be able to employ Varnish, Memcached and Node.js - 3 efficient web accelerators. Varnish is a multi-purpose application which caches pages the first time a site visitor opens them and delivers them instead of the server if the website visitor opens them again approximately 300% more quickly. Memcached caches API and database calls and responses to ensure the web server does not have to process every request, that makes it perfect for database-driven sites, for example ones designed with Joomla™
or WordPress. Node.js is employed to build web programs which operate in real-time including chats or accommodation booking portals and it processes each and every bit of data the instant the user enters it instead of waiting for sizeable chunks of info to be accumulated. The Hepsia Control Panel that comes with our semi-dedicated packages will allow you to choose how many instances of each accelerator shall work at a time and the amount of memory they will use.
Web Accelerators in VPS Web Hosting
In case you obtain a virtual private server
with the Hepsia Control Panel, you shall be able to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your Internet sites. All 3 accelerators are included within our plans by default and come with dedicated memory of a few hundred megabytes. Node.js is used to create scalable applications where real-time interaction is necessary - booking sites, online flash games, chats, etcetera. It processes the information in small pieces as the user is entering it, therefore it works faster than other platforms which wait for the users to submit one large piece of info. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator that operates as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it if the same visitor opens the same webpage again, which can easily speed any site several times since Varnish works faster than any hosting server. Memcached is employed for caching API and database responses, consequently it is suitable for script-driven sites like WordPress and Joomla™
. This web accelerator will be able to minimize the load on your server since it will decrease the amount of database queries which your sites make.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers Hosting
If you obtain a dedicated server
from our firm and you choose Hepsia as the hosting CP, you shall be able to use Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your sites. All packages come with several gigabytes of memory dedicated to those accelerators and the actual amount depends on the package that you choose. Node.js is employed for scalable online applications including browser games or hotel booking and it processes the info instantly as the client enters it, which makes it faster than comparable platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you employ it for a script-driven website, not only will the Internet site work faster, but also the load on the hosting server will decrease since there shall be a lesser amount of database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it is not limited to databases. Rather, it caches entire webpages once a guest opens them and delivers them instead of the web server every time the same visitor opens them afterwards. As Varnish processes web requests considerably faster than any server, the overall performance of a website using this accelerator can increase nearly 300%.
