A web accelerator is an application which accelerates a site, typically by caching its content. There are many types of accelerators, but in the typical case this kind of applications cache static content or database responses and supply them in place of the hosting server, hence enhancing the performance of a website noticeably. The latter is possible because accelerator apps work faster than a web server and not simply will an Internet site operate better, but the server load shall also decrease, which will allow you to run heavy Internet sites with less resources. We provide 3 web accelerators with our hosting packages, which will allow you to increase the speed of any type of Internet site. In comparison, most hosting firms don't provide any web accelerators or offer only 1, which limits your choice of web apps if you want to employ this kind of software.
Web Accelerators in Shared Web Hosting
If you host your websites in a shared web hosting
account from our firm, you shall have three popular web accelerators to select from if you would like to enhance the sites' functionality. Memcached is used for database-driven websites and it caches the calls and requests between an Internet site and its database, so it can minimize the load of such websites considerably. Varnish caches whole web pages the first time a site visitor opens them and delivers them from there on if the same visitor opens them again. It does that much more quickly than the web server, so it can easily raise the loading speed of any website approximately 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time apps that works on the server and not in the visitor's web browser. It's employed for holiday accommodation booking, chats and other apps where loads of data should be processed in real time. The availability of these accelerators depends upon the hosting solution that you pick - they could come by default or as an upgrade. In both cases, you will be able to include more instances or more memory for each one of them.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server
packages shall enable you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js - 3 of the most powerful web accelerators out there. Memcached is used to cache database and API calls and responses, therefore it can easily accelerate any script-driven site. You can use it for any Internet site built 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 may be employed for any type of Internet sites. Based on the content, it can easily raise the performance of an Internet site up to 300%. Node.js is a sophisticated system employed to create scalable Internet applications which process info in real time for example booking portals. Its advantage is that in contrast to similar platforms, it processes information consistently and in small portions rather than waiting for the user to submit one big chunk of data. The accelerators may be enabled for any website through the Hepsia Control Panel and you shall be able to select how many instances of each one of them will work and how much memory they will use.
Web Accelerators in VPS Servers
All VPS servers
which are incorporated with the Hepsia CP come with Varnish, Memcached and Node.js already included and you shall receive several hundred megabytes of dedicated memory for them by default. Varnish, that's also referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy, caches web pages the first time a site visitor opens them and provides them if that guest opens them again, so the hosting server won't need to perform any action. Because Varnish functions faster than any hosting server, a website employing this accelerator shall 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 apps which store their content within a database. Node.js is a highly effective platform for creating scalable web applications. Any data on an Internet site that employs Node.js is processed instantly, which makes it a superb choice for dining and accommodation booking sites, web-based chats, web browser games, and so on.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers
In the event that you obtain a dedicated server
from our company and you pick Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel, you will be able to use Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your sites. All solutions come with several gigabytes of memory dedicated to those accelerators and the actual amount depends on the package that you select. Node.js is used for scalable online apps including browser games or hotel booking and it processes the information in real time as the user enters it, which makes it considerably quicker than comparable platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you employ it for a script-driven site, not simply will the Internet site work faster, but also the load on the server will decrease since there will be considerably less database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it's not at all limited to databases. Instead, it caches entire pages once a website visitor opens them and provides them instead of the server each and every time the same visitor opens them afterwards. Because Varnish processes web requests considerably faster than any server, the efficiency of an Internet site using this accelerator could increase nearly 300%.
