What exactly do web accelerators do? What could you do to increase your website's loading speed?
A web accelerator is an application that accelerates a site, usually by caching its content. There are many kinds of accelerators, but in the general case this sort of apps cache static content or database responses and deliver them instead of the server, therefore increasing the performance of a website noticeably. The latter is achievable because accelerator programs work faster than a server and not simply will a site function better, but the server load shall also decrease, which will permit you to run heavy sites with less resources. We provide 3 web accelerators with our hosting plans, which will allow you to speed up any type of website. In comparison, most hosting providers don't provide any web accelerators or provide one, which limits your choice of web applications if you would like to use such software.
Web Accelerators in Shared Website Hosting
In case you host your websites within a shared website hosting account from us, you will have 3 popular web accelerators to pick from if you'd like to improve the sites' performance. Memcached is employed for database-driven websites and it caches the calls and requests between a website and its database, so it can easily decrease the load of such websites considerably. Varnish caches whole webpages the first time a visitor opens them and delivers them from there on if the same visitor opens them again. It does that much faster than the web server, so it could raise the loading speed of any website as much as 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time apps that functions on the server and not inside the visitor's browser. It is employed for holiday accommodation booking, chats and other apps where plenty of data needs to be processed in real time. The availability of those accelerators depends on the hosting solution that you pick - they might come by default or as an upgrade. In each case, you shall be able to add more instances or more memory for every one of them.
- Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated HostingOur semi-dedicated hosting packages will permit you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js - three of the most efficient web accelerators on the market. Memcached is employed to cache database and API calls and responses, therefore it could easily boost any script-driven website. You may use it for any website developed with WordPress or Joomla™, for instance. Varnish is also referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy and it is a general-purpose caching platform which can be used for any kind of sites. Depending on the content, it could improve the performance of a site close to 300%. Node.js is an innovative system employed to build scalable Internet applications which process information in real time for example booking portals. Its advantage is that in contrast to comparable platforms, it processes information constantly and in small pieces as opposed to waiting for the user to submit one sizeable piece of data. The accelerators could be enabled for any site from the Hepsia Control Panel and you'll be able to choose how many instances of each one of them shall work and how much memory they shall employ.
- Web Accelerators in VPS HostingAll virtual private servers which are integrated with the Hepsia CP come with Varnish, Memcached and Node.js already included and you will get several hundred MBs of dedicated memory for them by default. Varnish, which is also referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy, caches web pages the first time a guest opens them and delivers them in case that visitor opens them again, hence the hosting server won't have to perform any action. As Varnish operates much faster than any server, a website using this accelerator will operate several times faster. Memcached is a platform which caches database calls and responses and it's used for WordPress, Joomla™ and other script-driven applications that store their content within a database. Node.js is a highly effective platform for building scalable web programs. Any information on a site which employs Node.js is processed right away, making it a superb choice for dining and accommodation booking websites, web-based chats, web browser games, etc.
- Web Accelerators in Dedicated Web HostingMemcached, Varnish and Node.js are provided with all dedicated servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and in accordance with the package you opt for, you'll also have several gbs of dedicated memory for them. Memcached will decrease the hosting server load by lowering the number of queries that have to be dealt with since it caches database calls and responses. You will be able to use it on every site that uses an API or a database - as an example, any site developed with WordPress or Joomla™. Varnish could boost the performance of any type of site by caching whole pages the first time a visitor opens them. The accelerator delivers the pages if the exact same visitor opens them afterwards and since it does that faster than the hosting server, the visitor shall be able to surf your site at least a couple of times faster. For this reason Varnish is sometimes categorised as an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is a sophisticated platform which will permit you to create booking websites, web chats and other programs in which real-time server-user interaction is necessary. It processes the info in little portions as the client fills different boxes and doesn't wait for all boxes to be filled and processed as one sizeable piece of data, which makes Node.js considerably faster than similar programs.
