What precisely do web accelerators do? What could you do to be able to raise your website's loading speed?
A web accelerator is an application which speeds up a website, normally by caching its content. There are many kinds of accelerators, but in the typical case such apps cache static content or database responses and deliver them in place of the server, as a consequence increasing the performance of a site drastically. The latter is possible because accelerator programs work faster than a web server and not only will a site work better, but the server load will also decrease, which will enable you to run heavy Internet sites with less resources. We provide three web accelerators with our hosting plans, which will allow you to increase the speed of any kind of website. In comparison, most website hosting firms don't offer any web accelerators or provide just one, which limits your choice of web apps in case you'd like to employ this kind of software.
Web Accelerators in Shared Web Hosting
In case you get one of our shared web hosting
packages, you shall have 3 widely used web accelerators at your disposal and you will be able to access them directly via the Hepsia CP that is included with our packages. Varnish is one of the most popular ones and it can greatly speed up any site because it caches the pages that a site visitor opens for the first time and provides them every time that guest opens them again. Since Varnish operates much faster than any web server, the loading speed of any Internet site using the accelerator shall increase noticeably. Memcached is used to cache database and API calls and responses between a site visitor and a hosting server, so it is comparable to Varnish, but is used primarily for database-driven websites. Since the site will connect to its database much less, the overall server load shall be minimized substantially. The last accelerator, Node.js, is employed for scalable online applications like chats and booking websites because it processes info in real time the instant it is entered on the website by the users. Based on the plan you select, these accelerators could be available or may be an optional upgrade.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you pick one of our semi-dedicated hosting
solutions, you will be able to use Varnish, Memcached and Node.js - 3 powerful web accelerators. Varnish is a multi-purpose app which caches webpages the first time a website visitor opens them and delivers them instead of the web server if the site visitor opens them again close to 300% faster. Memcached caches API and database calls and responses in order that the hosting server doesn't have to process each and every request, which makes it ideal for database-driven websites, such as ones developed with Joomla™
or WordPress. Node.js is employed to produce web programs which operate in real-time such as chats or accommodation booking websites and it processes each bit of data the moment the user enters it as opposed to waiting for large pieces of data to be accumulated. The Hepsia CP that is included with our semi-dedicated solutions shall enable you to select how many instances of each and every accelerator shall work at a time and just how much memory they will use.
Web Accelerators in VPS Web Hosting
All virtual private servers
which are incorporated with the Hepsia Control Panel come with Varnish, Memcached and Node.js already included and you'll receive several hundred megabytes 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 guest opens them and delivers them when that guest opens them again, so the web server shall not need to perform any action. Because Varnish works considerably faster than any server, an Internet site employing this accelerator will operate several times quicker. Memcached is a platform that caches database calls and responses and it's employed for WordPress, Joomla™
and other script-driven apps that store their content inside a database. Node.js is an effective platform for developing scalable web apps. Any info on a site which employs Node.js is processed in real time, which makes it a superb choice for dining and accommodation booking Internet sites, web-based chats, Internet browser games, and so on.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers Hosting
In case you buy 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 Internet sites. All solutions include several gigabytes of memory dedicated to those accelerators and the actual amount depends on the plan you select. Node.js is used for scalable online apps like browser games or hotel booking and it processes the data immediately as the user 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 website, not only will the site speed up, but also the load on the server will decrease as 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 whole pages once a guest opens them and provides them instead of the web server each and every time the same visitor opens them later on. Due to the fact that Varnish processes web requests faster than any hosting server, the overall performance of an Internet site using this accelerator may increase up to 300%.
