A web accelerator is a server-side application which accelerates an Internet site. Such a piece of software can function in different ways based on the site content, but in the general case all such applications cache content and deliver it instead of the hosting server. That's valid for both static and dynamic sites since the cached content can be simple text or database responses and the benefit of using a web accelerator isn't simply the faster loading Internet site, but also the reduced overall load on the server. That way, you may use a lower-end hosting plan that'll also cost less while your visitors could still enjoy fast browsing speeds. Several service providers provide web accelerators with their hosting deals and they usually offer only one, while we offer three different ones that'll permit you to boost the performance of any sort of site noticeably.
Web Accelerators in Cloud Web Hosting
In case you buy one of our cloud web hosting plans, you will have three popular web accelerators at your disposal and you shall be able to access them directly through the Hepsia CP which is included with our packages. Varnish is one of the most popular ones and it could greatly speed up any website because it caches the pages that a website visitor opens for the first time and delivers them every time that guest opens them again. Since Varnish works much faster than any hosting server, the loading speed of any website using the accelerator will grow significantly. Memcached is used to cache database and API calls and responses between a site visitor and a web server, so it is similar to Varnish, but is used largely for database-driven Internet sites. Since the website shall connect to its database a lot less, the overall web server load will be minimized substantially. The 3rd accelerator, Node.js, is used for scalable online apps including chats and booking websites because it processes data in real time as soon as it is entered on the website by the users. Dependant upon the plan you select, these accelerators might be available or might be an optional upgrade.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers
The Hepsia CP that is included with our semi-dedicated server solutions will permit you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your sites. Memcached is among the most popular accelerators since it can increase the speed of any API or database-driven site by caching requests and responses, consequently the server shall not need to process identical requests time and time again. The platform is ideal for Internet sites designed with applications such as Joomla, Mambo or WordPress. Varnish is an efficient accelerator that caches any sort of content and is also known as an HTTP reverse proxy. It caches pages which are opened by a website visitor for the first time and delivers them each and every time that same website visitor opens them again. Varnish can speed up a site several times simply because it delivers content faster than any server. Node.js is a platform used for scalable real-time applications like chats, Internet browser games or social networks. It processes data in little bits the moment a user types anything, so it works much more quickly than similar platforms where users submit big parts of info which need time to be processed. You can choose the number of instances and the dedicated memory for each of the 3 accelerators using your Control Panel.
Web Accelerators in VPS Servers
We provide Memcached, Node.js and Varnish with all VPS servers that are acquired with the Hepsia Control Panel. Your web server shall also feature a few hundred MBs of dedicated memory for these accelerators and the specific amount would depend on the plan that you choose. Memcached is used for script-driven sites since it caches database responses, as a result lowering the amount of queries that a script sends to its database. It can be employed for any script like WordPress or Joomla. Node.js is a highly effective platform for creating web apps for example booking Internet sites and chats. The real-time interaction between users and a web server is done by processing smaller parts of info as soon any user inputs anything on the website. In contrast, other platforms await customers to input plenty of information before they process it, thus they work slowly. Varnish is a multi-purpose accelerator that caches entire webpages and delivers them instead of the server at a much faster rate. It is also referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy and it can speed up any sort of Internet site.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers
Memcached, Varnish and Node.js come with all dedicated servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting CP and in accordance with the package deal that you pick, you'll also have several gbs of dedicated memory for them. Memcached will minimize the hosting server load by lowering the amount of queries which have to be taken care of because it caches database calls and responses. You will be able to use it on every site that uses an API or a database - for example, any site developed with WordPress or Joomla. Varnish can boost the performance of any type of site by caching whole pages the first time a guest opens them. The accelerator delivers the pages if the exact same visitor opens them later and considering the fact that it does that faster than the hosting server, the visitor will be able to look through your Internet site at least a few times faster. That is why Varnish is often categorised as an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is an advanced platform which will permit you to develop booking sites, web chats and other applications in which real-time server-user interaction is necessary. It processes the info in little portions as the client fills different boxes and does not wait for all boxes to be filled and processed as one substantial chunk of info, which makes Node.js way quicker than similar programs.
