A web accelerator is a server-side program that quickens a website. Such a piece of software could operate in different ways depending on the website content, but in the general situation all such programs cache content and deliver it instead of the server. This is valid for both static and dynamic Internet sites because the cached content may be simple text or database responses and the advantage of employing a web accelerator isn't only the faster loading site, but also the decreased overall load on the hosting server. That way, you'll be able to use a lower-end hosting plan which will also cost less while your website visitors can still enjoy high browsing speeds. Several companies offer web accelerators with their hosting packages and they frequently offer just one, while we offer three different ones that'll allow you to improve the performance of any kind of website significantly.
Web Accelerators in Shared Web Hosting
We offer 3 of the most popular web accelerators along with our shared web hosting solutions and based on what plan you shall choose when you sign up, they might already be available or they might be an optional upgrade. Varnish is the most widely used one of them and it could be employed for any type of site. It caches the web pages the first time a website visitor opens them and provides them at a faster speed compared to the hosting server each time that a visitor opens them again. Memcached is employed to cache API and database calls, so it can increase the speed of dynamic Internet sites like online stores, forums or social networks. Node.js is used for scalable web programs and it operates in real-time, which makes it suitable for server-side data processing - chats, browser games, booking portals, and so on. You shall be able to choose the amount of memory these accelerators shall use and how many instances of each will run from your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers
The Hepsia CP which comes with our semi-dedicated server solutions shall allow you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your sites. Memcached is one of the most well-known accelerators since it can effortlessly increase the speed of any API or database-driven site by caching requests and responses, therefore the server shall not need to process identical requests over and over again. The platform is perfect for Internet sites created with apps like Joomla, Mambo or WordPress. Varnish is a highly effective accelerator which caches any type of content and is also known as an HTTP reverse proxy. It caches webpages that are opened by a website visitor for the first time and provides them each time that very same website visitor opens them again. Varnish can easily speed up a site several times as it delivers content faster than any web server. Node.js is a platform used for scalable real-time programs like chats, Internet browser games or social networks. It processes data in little parts the moment a user types anything, therefore it functions considerably faster than similar platforms where users submit large portions of information which need time to be processed. You'll be able to choose the number of instances and the dedicated memory for every one of the three accelerators using your CP.
Web Accelerators in VPS Servers
In the event that you obtain a VPS server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you shall be able to employ Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your websites. All three accelerators are incorporated in our solutions by default and feature dedicated memory of several hundred MBs. Node.js is employed to develop scalable applications where real-time interaction is required - booking sites, online games, chats, etcetera. It processes the information in small bits as the user is entering it, as a result it operates quicker than other platforms which wait for the end users to enter one massive piece of information. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator which works as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it in case the same visitor opens the same website again, which could speed any site several times since Varnish functions quicker than any hosting server. Memcached is employed for caching API and database responses, therefore it is ideal for script-driven sites such as WordPress and Joomla. This web accelerator can easily lessen the load on your hosting server since it'll reduce the number of database queries that your Internet sites make.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers
Memcached, Varnish and Node.js come with all dedicated servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and depending on the package you select, you'll also have several gbs of dedicated memory for them. Memcached can decrease the hosting server load by lowering the number of queries that have to be addressed as it caches database calls and responses. You shall be able to use it on any site that uses an API or a database - for instance, any website created with WordPress or Joomla. Varnish can easily enhance the performance of any kind of Internet site by caching whole pages the first time a visitor opens them. The accelerator provides the webpages if the same visitor opens them afterwards and considering the fact that it does that considerably faster than the server, the website visitor will be able to browse your Internet site at least a few times faster. This is why Varnish is occasionally referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is an innovative platform that'll permit you to create booking sites, web chats and other applications where real-time server-user interaction is required. It processes the information in tiny bits as the user fills different boxes and doesn't wait for all boxes to be filled and processed as one substantial piece of info, which makes Node.js much faster than similar programs.
