Find out what specifically web accelerators are and the way you can benefit from them to enhance your site’s efficiency.
A web accelerator is a server-side application which quickens an Internet site. Such a piece of software may function 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. That's valid for both static and dynamic websites as the cached content can be simple text or database responses and the benefit of employing a web accelerator is not just the faster loading site, but also the decreased overall load on the server. That way, you could use a lower-end hosting package which will also cost less while your site visitors can still enjoy fast browsing speeds. Handful of service providers offer web accelerators with their hosting deals and they often offer only 1, while we offer 3 different ones which will allow you to boost the performance of any type of website significantly.
Web Accelerators in Shared Web Hosting
In case you purchase one of our shared web hosting plans, you shall have 3 popular web accelerators at your disposal and you'll be able to access them directly through the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with our packages. Varnish is one of the most popular ones and it could greatly speed up any website since it caches the web pages a website visitor opens for the first time and delivers them every time that visitor opens them again. Because Varnish works much faster than any web server, the loading speed of any website using the accelerator shall raise substantially. Memcached is employed to cache database and API calls and responses between an Internet site visitor and a server, so it is comparable to Varnish, but is employed primarily for database-driven sites. Considering that the Internet site shall connect to its database way less, the overall web server load will be reduced substantially. The 3rd accelerator, Node.js, is used for scalable online programs such as chats and booking websites because it processes data in real time as soon as it is entered on the webpage by the users. Depending on the plan you pick, these accelerators may be available or may be an optional upgrade.
- Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated HostingOur semi-dedicated hosting packages will enable you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js - 3 of the most efficient web accelerators out there. Memcached is used to cache database and API calls and responses, thus it could easily increase the speed of any script-driven website. You may use it for any Internet site built with WordPress or Joomla™, for example. Varnish is also often called an HTTP reverse proxy and it's a general-purpose caching platform that may be used for any kind of sites. Depending on the content, it can increase the performance of an Internet site as much as 300%. Node.js is an innovative system used to create scalable Internet apps which process data in real time for instance booking portals. Its advantage is that in contrast to comparable platforms, it processes info consistently and in small parts instead of waiting for the user to submit one large piece of data. The accelerators can be enabled for any Internet site through the Hepsia CP and you will be able to choose how many instances of every one of them will work and how much memory they will employ.
- Web Accelerators in VPS Web HostingAll 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, which is also referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy, caches webpages the first time a guest opens them and provides them in case that guest opens them again, hence the server shall not need to perform any action. As Varnish operates faster than any web 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 apps which store their content in a database. Node.js is a powerful platform for building scalable web applications. Any info on a website which employs Node.js is processed right away, which makes it a fantastic choice for dining and accommodation booking Internet sites, web-based chats, web browser games, and so forth.
- Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers HostingMemcached, Varnish and Node.js are available with all dedicated servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and based on the package deal that you opt for, you'll also have several gbs of dedicated memory for them. Memcached will reduce the hosting server load by lowering the amount of queries that have to be taken care of since it caches database calls and responses. You shall be able to use it on every website which uses an API or a database - as an example, any website developed with WordPress or Joomla™. Varnish could enhance the performance of any kind of Internet site by caching whole webpages the first time a guest opens them. The accelerator delivers the webpages if the very same visitor opens them later and given that it does that way quicker than the server, the website visitor shall be able to look through your Internet site at least a couple of times faster. That is why Varnish is sometimes categorised as an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is an advanced platform that'll allow you to develop booking sites, web chats and other apps in which real-time server-user interaction is needed. It processes the info in tiny bits as the user fills different boxes and does not wait for all boxes to be filled and processed as one large chunk of info, which makes Node.js much quicker than similar apps.
