A web accelerator is a server-side application which accelerates an Internet site. Such a piece of software could operate in different ways depending on the site content, but in the typical situation all such apps cache content and deliver it instead of the web server. That is valid for both static and dynamic websites as the cached content could be simple text or database responses and the reward of using a web accelerator isn't only the faster loading Internet site, but also the reduced overall load on the server. That way, you could use a lower-end hosting plan that will also cost less while your visitors will be able to still enjoy superior browsing speeds. Handful of businesses provide web accelerators with their hosting plans and they typically offer only one, while we offer three different ones that will enable you to boost the performance of any kind of Internet site considerably.
Web Accelerators in Cloud Hosting
When you buy one of our cloud hosting
packages, you shall have three well-known web accelerators at your disposal and you'll be able to access them directly via the Hepsia Control Panel that is included with our packages. Varnish is one of the most well-known ones and it can considerably increase the speed of any site because it caches the web pages which a website visitor opens for the first time and provides them each time that visitor opens them again. Since Varnish works way quicker than any web server, the loading speed of any Internet site using the accelerator will improve considerably. Memcached is employed to cache database and API calls and responses between a visitor and a web server, so it's comparable to Varnish, but is employed primarily for database-driven sites. Because the Internet site will connect to its database a lot less, the overall server load will be decreased notably. The 3rd accelerator, Node.js, is employed for scalable online programs including chats and booking Internet sites as it processes data in real time the moment it is entered on the site by the users. Dependant upon the plan you choose, these accelerators may be available or may be an optional upgrade.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the Internet sites hosted within your semi-dedicated server
account depending on the nature of the site content. Memcached, for instance, caches database requests, therefore it's an excellent option for any script app such as WordPress or Joomla™
. That way, the database hosting server will not need to process the exact same request if many users open a webpage with the same content. Varnish is very similar, but it is a general-purpose accelerator because it caches any type of content the first time a visitor opens a site. In case this page is opened again by the very same guest, it'll be provided by Varnish at a much better speed compared to the server. Using this web accelerator can lessen the load generated by your Internet sites significantly. Last, but not least, Node.js will permit you to create scalable web apps such as hotel booking websites or chats. Its advantage over similar platforms is that it does not wait for a user to submit a large piece of data, but processes whatever the client is typing in real-time. The 3 web accelerators are available within the Hepsia CP and you'll be able to select how many instances of each and every one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they'll use.
Web Accelerators in VPS Servers
We offer Memcached, Node.js and Varnish with all VPS servers
that are acquired with the Hepsia Control Panel. Your server will also come with a few hundred MBs of dedicated memory for these accelerators and the exact amount depends on the package that you choose. Memcached is employed for script-driven Internet sites because it caches database responses, as a result reducing the number of queries that a script sends to its database. It can be employed for any script like WordPress or Joomla™
. Node.js is a powerful platform for building web programs for example booking websites and chats. The real-time interaction between users and a web server is done by processing little parts of information as soon any user enters anything on the webpage. In comparison, other platforms await users to input a considerable amount of information before they process it, therefore they function slowly. Varnish is a multi-purpose accelerator that caches whole webpages and provides them instead of the hosting server at a considerably quicker rate. It is also referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy and it can speed up any kind of Internet site.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers
In case you choose Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel for your new dedicated server, you will have Memcached, Varnish and Node.js available for increasing the speed of your Internet sites. Memcached can easily reduce the load on the server by lowering the queries your script-driven sites make as it caches database responses. This web accelerator is good for dynamic sites built with WordPress, Joomla™
and very similar scripts. Varnish, which is often called an HTTP reverse proxy, caches entire websites the first time a new visitor opens them. It can be used to speed up any sort of website as it delivers the cached content much quicker than the server every time a customer opens the same page again. You could use Node.js for online apps which demand real-time server-client interaction including online chats or booking Internet sites. In contrast to other platforms that await the user to enter everything on a form, Node.js processes the data little by little as the user fills every box, so it operates much faster and more efficiently. All dedicated server
solutions include several gigabytes of memory dedicated to those 3 web accelerators.
