A web accelerator is a software application that accelerates a site typically by caching content and providing it instead of the server. Such apps can be employed for both dynamic and static Internet sites since there are various accelerators that can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The advantage of employing a web accelerator is that a given website will perform significantly faster without employing more resources. Just the opposite, this type of a site will demand a lesser amount of resources to operate since the web accelerator will take care of most requests rather than the hosting server. Contrary to many firms which don't offer web accelerators with their solutions or offer only 1, we offer 3 different ones that will allow you to speed up your websites whatever their style or content.
Web Accelerators in Shared Web Hosting
If you host your websites within a shared web hosting account from us, you shall have three popular web accelerators to pick from if you would like to enhance the sites' efficiency. Memcached is employed for database-driven sites and it caches the calls and requests between an Internet site and its database, so it can minimize the load of such sites considerably. Varnish caches entire webpages the first time a site visitor opens them and provides them from there on if the same website visitor opens them again. It does that faster than the web server, so it can boost the loading speed of any Internet site nearly 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time apps that operates on the server and not in the visitor's web browser. It's employed for holiday accommodation booking, chats and other applications where lots of data should be processed in real time. The availability of those accelerators depends on the hosting plan which you choose - they could come by default or as an upgrade. In both cases, you'll be able to add more instances or more memory for each one of them.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You'll be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the websites hosted in your semi-dedicated hosting account based on the nature of the website content. Memcached, in particular, caches database requests, so it is an excellent choice for any script program like WordPress or Joomla. This way, the database server won't have to process the very same request if many users open a page with the same content. Varnish is similar, but it's a general-purpose accelerator because it caches any type of content the first time a visitor opens an Internet site. If that web page is opened again by the very same website visitor, it'll be provided by Varnish at a much higher speed compared to the web server. Employing this web accelerator shall reduce the load produced by your Internet sites significantly. Last, but not least, Node.js shall permit you to produce scalable web apps such as hotel booking websites or chats. Its advantage over similar platforms is that it does not wait for a user to submit a big piece of info, but processes whatever the client is typing in real-time. The three web accelerators are available within the Hepsia Control Panel 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 Web Hosting
We offer Memcached, Node.js and Varnish with all virtual private servers which are acquired with the Hepsia Control Panel. Your hosting server will also feature a few hundred megabytes of dedicated memory for these accelerators and the specific amount would depend on the plan that you pick. Memcached is employed for script-driven Internet sites because it caches database responses, thus decreasing the number of queries that a script sends to its database. It can be used for any script such as WordPress or Joomla. Node.js is an efficient platform for developing web programs for example booking websites and chats. The real-time interaction between end users and a server is performed by processing little parts of info as soon any user enters anything on the webpage. In contrast, other platforms await users to enter a lot of data before they process it, as a result they function slowly. Varnish is a multi-purpose accelerator which caches entire webpages and provides them instead of the hosting server at a much faster rate. It's also known as an HTTP reverse proxy and it can effortlessly speed up any type of site.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers Hosting
If you acquire a dedicated server from us and you opt for Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel, you will be able to employ Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your Internet sites. All solutions come with several gigabytes of memory dedicated to these accelerators and the specific amount depends on the package you select. Node.js is used for scalable online applications like browser games or hotel booking and it processes the info instantly as the client enters it, which makes it much faster than comparable platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you use it for a script-driven site, not only will the site speed up, but also the load on the web server will minimize as there will be fewer database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it's not at all limited to databases. Rather, it caches entire websites once a visitor opens them and delivers them instead of the hosting server whenever the same visitor opens them afterwards. As Varnish processes web requests much quicker than any hosting server, the overall performance of an Internet site using this accelerator may increase nearly 300%.
