A web accelerator is a server-side program which accelerates a website. Such a piece of software could work in different ways depending on the site content, but in the typical situation all such apps cache content and deliver it instead of the server. That is valid for both dynamic and static websites because the cached content could be simple text or database responses and the benefit of using a web accelerator is not simply the faster loading site, but also the smaller overall load on the hosting server. This way, you may employ a lower-end hosting plan that will also cost less while your website visitors could still enjoy high browsing speeds. Several service providers supply web accelerators with their hosting plans and they frequently offer only 1, while we offer three different ones that will allow you to enhance the performance of any kind of website substantially.
Web Accelerators in Cloud Website Hosting
We offer three of the most well-known web accelerators together with our cloud website hosting
services and depending on what plan you'll pick when you sign up, they may already be available or they could be an optional upgrade. Varnish is the most well-known one of them and it can be employed for any sort of website. It caches the web pages the first time a site visitor opens them and delivers them at a faster speed compared to the server every time that a website visitor opens them again. Memcached is used to cache API and database calls, so it can increase the speed of dynamic sites like online stores, forums or social networks. Node.js is employed for scalable web apps and it functions in real-time, which makes it perfect for server-side data processing - chats, browser games, booking portals, and so on. You'll be able to select what amount of memory these accelerators will use and how many instances of each one shall run from your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers
The Hepsia Control Panel which is included with our semi-dedicated server
plans shall enable you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your sites. Memcached is one of the most widely used accelerators as it can increase the speed of any API or database-driven Internet site by caching requests and responses, thus the web server won't need to process identical requests time and time again. The platform is suitable for websites designed with applications like Joomla™
, Mambo or WordPress. Varnish is an efficient accelerator that caches any kind of content and is also frequently called an HTTP reverse proxy. It caches pages which are opened by a site visitor for the first time and provides them every time that very same website visitor opens them again. Varnish can easily accelerate a site several times since it delivers content faster than any server. Node.js is a platform employed for scalable real-time programs like chats, Internet browser games or social networks. It processes info in smaller parts as soon as a user types something, therefore it functions faster than similar platforms where users submit sizeable parts of info which need time to be processed. You could select the number of instances and the dedicated memory for every one of the 3 accelerators via your CP.
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 MBs of dedicated memory for them by default. Varnish, that is also referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy, caches web pages the first time a site visitor opens them and provides them when that guest opens them again, hence the hosting server will not have to perform any action. Because Varnish operates much faster than any server, a site using this accelerator shall 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 applications that store their content inside a database. Node.js is a powerful platform for developing scalable web programs. Any data on a website that employs Node.js is processed right away, making it an excellent choice for dining and accommodation booking Internet sites, web-based chats, Internet browser games, and so forth.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers
In the event that you get a dedicated server
from us and you select Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel, you shall be able to use Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your sites. All plans feature several gigabytes of memory dedicated to these accelerators and the exact amount depends on the package deal you choose. Node.js is employed for scalable online apps like browser games or hotel booking and it processes the data right away as the client enters it, which makes it much faster than very similar platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you employ it for a script-driven site, not only will the website speed up, but also the load on the web server will reduce since there shall be a lesser amount of database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it isn't limited to databases. Rather, it caches entire web pages once a guest opens them and provides them instead of the hosting server whenever the same visitor opens them later. As Varnish processes web requests much faster than any web server, the overall performance of a website using this accelerator can increase around 300%.
