A web accelerator is a program that accelerates a website, typically by caching its content. There are various types of accelerators, but in the general case such applications cache static content or database responses and deliver them in place of the web server, hence enhancing the performance of an Internet site greatly. The latter is possible because accelerator apps work faster than a hosting server and not only will a website function better, but the server load shall also minimize, which will enable you to run heavy sites with less system resources. We provide three web accelerators with our hosting plans, which will enable you to speed up any kind of Internet site. In comparison, most hosting providers do not provide any web accelerators or provide just one, which limits your choice of web apps in case you would like to use this kind of software.
Web Accelerators in Website Hosting
We offer 3 of the most well-known web accelerators along with our website hosting
services and depending on what plan you will select when you sign up, they may already be available or they might be an optional upgrade. Varnish is the most widely used one of them and it may be employed for any sort of Internet site. It caches the pages the first time a site visitor opens them and delivers them at a much faster speed compared to the hosting server each and every time that a website visitor opens them again. Memcached is employed to cache API and database calls, so it can easily boost the speed of dynamic sites such as online stores, forums or social networks. Node.js is employed for scalable web apps and it works in real-time, which makes it ideal for server-side data processing - chats, browser games, booking portals, etcetera. You shall be able to pick how much memory these accelerators shall use and how many instances of each one will run from your Hepsia web hosting CP.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers
You shall be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the websites hosted in your semi-dedicated server
account in accordance with the nature of the site content. Memcached, in particular, caches database requests, therefore it's an excellent option for any script app like WordPress or Joomla™
. That way, the database hosting server shall not need to process the very same request if a number of users open a website with the same content. Varnish is very similar, but it's a general-purpose accelerator as it caches any type of content the first time a guest opens a site. If that web page is opened again by the same guest, it'll be delivered by Varnish at a much better speed compared to the hosting server. Employing this web accelerator can lessen the load produced by your sites drastically. Last, but not least, Node.js shall enable you to build scalable web applications like hotel booking Internet sites or chats. Its advantage over similar platforms is that it does not wait for a client to submit a sizable piece of info, but processes whatever the customer is inputting in real-time. The three web accelerators are available in the Hepsia CP and you shall be able to choose how many instances of each one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they may use.
Web Accelerators in VPS Servers
If you obtain a VPS server
with the Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your websites. All three accelerators are integrated in our plans by default and offer dedicated memory of several hundred MBs. Node.js is employed to develop scalable apps where real-time interaction is necessary - booking websites, online games, chats, and so on. It processes the info in little bits as the end user is entering it, therefore it operates faster than other platforms which wait for the users to input one massive bit of information. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator that functions as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it when the same guest opens the same page again, which can speed any Internet site several times because Varnish operates more quickly than any web server. Memcached is used for caching API and database responses, so it is appropriate for script-driven sites such as WordPress and Joomla™
. This web accelerator can easily reduce the load on your server as it shall decrease the amount of database queries which your Internet sites make.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers
In the event that you choose Hepsia as the hosting CP for your new dedicated server, you'll have Memcached, Varnish and Node.js readily available for accelerating your websites. Memcached will be able to decrease the load on the hosting server by lowering the queries your script-driven sites make because it caches database responses. This web accelerator is good for dynamic websites created with WordPress, Joomla™
and comparable scripts. Varnish, which is often called an HTTP reverse proxy, caches whole websites the first time a new visitor opens them. It may be used to accelerate any sort of website because it delivers the cached content considerably faster than the server each time a customer opens the same webpage again. You could use Node.js for online apps which call for real-time server-client interaction like online chats or booking websites. In contrast to other platforms which wait for the user to fill everything on a form, Node.js processes the info little by little as the user fills each box, so it works considerably faster and more efficiently. All dedicated server
plans come with several gigabytes of memory dedicated to those three web accelerators.
