A web accelerator is an application which speeds up a site, typically by caching its content. There are different kinds of accelerators, but in the common case such applications cache static content or database responses and supply them instead of the server, hence improving the performance of a site significantly. The latter can be done because accelerator programs work faster than a hosting server and not simply will a website function better, but the server load shall also minimize, which will enable you to run heavy Internet sites with less resources. We offer three web accelerators with our hosting plans, which will allow you to speed up any type of Internet site. In comparison, most website hosting service providers don't provide any web accelerators or offer only 1, which limits your choice of web apps if you'd like to use this kind of software.
Web Accelerators in Shared Website Hosting
If you buy one of our shared website hosting packages, you'll have 3 widely used web accelerators at your disposal and you'll be able to access them directly via the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with our solutions. Varnish is one of the most well-known ones and it can greatly increase the speed of any website as it caches the web pages a visitor opens for the first time and delivers them each and every time that guest opens them again. Given that Varnish functions way quicker than any web server, the loading speed of any site using the accelerator shall increase considerably. Memcached is employed to cache database and API calls and responses between a visitor and a server, so it is similar to Varnish, but is used mainly for database-driven Internet sites. Considering that the Internet site will connect to its database a lot less, the overall server load shall be minimized substantially. The 3rd accelerator, Node.js, is employed for scalable online apps including chats and booking Internet sites because it processes data in real time the instant it is entered on the webpage by the users. Depending on the package you choose, these accelerators could be available or could be an optional upgrade.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server packages shall enable you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js - three of the most efficient web accelerators on the market. Memcached is used to cache database and API calls and responses, so it could easily accelerate any script-driven Internet site. You can use it for any Internet site created with WordPress or Joomla, for instance. Varnish is also often called an HTTP reverse proxy and it is a general-purpose caching platform that can be used for any type of websites. Based on the content, it can easily increase the performance of an Internet site up to 300%. Node.js is a sophisticated system employed to build scalable Internet apps that process data in real time for example booking portals. Its advantage is that unlike similar platforms, it processes information continuously and in small bits rather than waiting for the user to submit one big chunk of data. The accelerators could be enabled for any website from the Hepsia CP and you will be able to choose how many instances of every one of them will work and how much memory they will employ.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers
Memcached, Node.js and Varnish are available by default with all of our dedicated servers that are ordered with Hepsia as the Internet hosting Control Panel. These 3 web accelerators feature several gbs of dedicated memory and you could use them to speed up any type of Internet site. Memcached can substantially lessen the load on the web server if you have script-driven sites as it caches database responses, thus it decreases the number of database queries the web server has to take care of. Node.js will allow you to create scalable programs with real-time user-server interaction like chats or dining booking websites. Its advantage over comparable platforms is that it processes information the instant the user enters it, so all the information is taken care of quicker and in small parts. Varnish caches entire webpages the first time a site visitor opens them and delivers them each and every time the same visitor opens them again, which makes it a universal accelerator for any sort of websites. As it operates quicker than any web server, it can speed up an Internet site at least several times and for that reason, Varnish is one of the most widely used web accelerators around.
