Know what precisely web accelerators are and exactly how you'll be able to make the most of them to supercharge your website’s overall performance.
A web accelerator is a software program which accelerates an Internet site typically by caching content and providing it instead of the hosting server. Such applications could be employed for both dynamic and static websites as there are different accelerators that can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The advantage of employing a web accelerator is that a given Internet site shall perform substantially faster without employing more system resources. On the contrary, this type of a website will require significantly less resources to work as the web accelerator will handle most requests instead of the web server. In contrast to many businesses that don't offer web accelerators with their plans or offer only one, we offer three different ones which will permit you to speed up your websites whatever their style or content.
Web Accelerators in Cloud Web Hosting
If you host your Internet sites in a cloud web hosting
account from our company, you'll have three popular web accelerators to select from if you'd like to improve the sites' efficiency. 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 decrease the load of such sites drastically. Varnish caches whole pages the first time a visitor opens them and provides them from there on if the same visitor opens them again. It does that much more quickly than the server, so it can easily raise the loading speed of any site as much as 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time apps which works on the server and not inside the visitor's world-wide web browser. It's employed for accommodation booking, chats and other programs where loads of data has to be processed in real time. The availability of the accelerators depends upon the hosting solution which you choose - they may come by default or as an upgrade. In each case, you'll be able to include more instances or more memory for every one of them.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You'll be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the websites hosted within your semi-dedicated hosting
account depending on the nature of the website content. Memcached, in particular, caches database requests, therefore it's a great option for any script app like WordPress or Joomla™
. That way, the database server won't need to process the very same request if multiple users open a page with the same content. Varnish is similar, but it is a general-purpose accelerator because it caches any sort of content the first time a guest opens a page. If that page is opened again by the exact same guest, it will be delivered by Varnish at a greater speed compared to the server. Using this web accelerator shall decrease the load created by your sites tremendously. Last, but not least, Node.js shall enable you to create scalable web apps like hotel booking websites or chats. Its advantage over similar platforms is that it does not wait for a user to submit a large piece of info, but processes whatever the user is typing in real-time. The 3 web accelerators are available within the Hepsia CP and you will be able to choose how many instances of every one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they'll use.
Web Accelerators in VPS Hosting
All virtual private servers
that are set up with the Hepsia Control Panel come with Varnish, Memcached and Node.js already included and you will receive several hundred megabytes of dedicated memory for them by default. Varnish, that is also referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy, caches webpages the first time a visitor opens them and provides them when that visitor opens them again, hence the server shall not need to perform any action. Because Varnish functions much quicker than any hosting server, a website using this accelerator shall operate several times faster. Memcached is a platform that caches database calls and responses and it is used for WordPress, Joomla™
and other script-driven apps that store their content in a database. Node.js is a highly effective platform for creating scalable web programs. Any info on an Internet site which uses Node.js is processed right away, making it a superb choice for dining and accommodation booking sites, web-based chats, Internet browser games, etcetera.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Web Hosting
In case you pick Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel for your new dedicated server, you'll have Memcached, Varnish and Node.js readily available for increasing the speed of your websites. Memcached will be able to lessen the load on the web server by lowering the queries your script-driven websites make as it caches database responses. This web accelerator is perfect for dynamic Internet sites built with WordPress, Joomla™
and very similar scripts. Varnish, which is often called an HTTP reverse proxy, caches whole webpages the first time a new visitor opens them. It could be employed to accelerate any type of Internet site as it provides the cached content way quicker than the web server each time a customer opens the same webpage again. You'll be able to use Node.js for online programs that call for real-time server-client interaction such as online chats or booking sites. In contrast to other platforms that wait for the user to input everything on a form, Node.js processes the info gradually as the user fills each box, so it functions faster and more effectively. All dedicated server
plans feature several gigabytes of memory dedicated to these 3 web accelerators.
