A web accelerator is a server-side program that speeds up a site. Such a piece of software may function in different ways depending upon the website content, but in the general case all such programs cache content and deliver it instead of the hosting server. That is valid for both static and dynamic Internet sites because the cached content can be simple text or database responses and the advantage of employing a web accelerator isn't just the faster loading website, but also the reduced overall load on the server. This way, you'll be able to use a lower-end hosting package which will also cost less while your visitors could still enjoy superior browsing speeds. Several service providers offer web accelerators with their hosting deals and they often offer only one, while we offer three different ones which will allow you to improve the performance of any sort of site significantly.
Web Accelerators in Cloud Hosting
When you purchase one of our cloud hosting
plans, you will have 3 popular web accelerators at your disposal and you will be able to access them directly via the Hepsia Control Panel that is included with our solutions. Varnish is one of the most well-known ones and it could tremendously speed up any site since it caches the pages a visitor opens for the first time and provides them each time that guest opens them again. Since Varnish works considerably faster than any hosting server, the loading speed of any Internet site using the accelerator shall improve significantly. Memcached is used to cache database and API calls and responses between a website visitor and a web server, so it is similar to Varnish, but is employed mainly for database-driven Internet sites. Since the website will connect to its database a lot less, the overall server load shall be reduced notably. The last accelerator, Node.js, is used for scalable online apps including chats and booking Internet sites since it processes data in real time the instant it is entered on the website by the users. Based on the plan you choose, these accelerators might be available or could be an optional upgrade.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the sites hosted inside your semi-dedicated server
account in accordance with the nature of the site content. Memcached, for example, caches database requests, therefore it's a fantastic option for any script program such as WordPress or Joomla™
. That way, the database web server won't have to process the same request if multiple users open a webpage with the same content. Varnish is very similar, but it's a general-purpose accelerator as it caches any kind of content the first time a website visitor opens a site. In case this page is opened again by the same visitor, it'll be provided by Varnish at a greater speed compared to the web server. Using this web accelerator will minimize the load generated by your Internet sites significantly. Last, but not least, Node.js will allow you to build scalable web applications such as hotel booking sites or chats. Its advantage over very similar platforms is that it does not wait for a client to submit a large piece of data, but processes whatever the client is entering in real-time. The 3 web accelerators are available inside the Hepsia Control Panel and you shall be able to select how many instances of every one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they can employ.
Web Accelerators in VPS Servers
In case you choose your VPS server
to be incorporated with the Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to use Varnish, Memcached and Node.js - 3 of the most popular web accelerators. Varnish caches sites the first time they are visited and delivers them each time the same person visits them again, which can speed up any kind of website several times. Memcached is used for dynamic script applications such as Joomla™
and WordPress as it caches database requests and responses, therefore the database hosting server will not need to process the same website every time guests open it in case the same content should be displayed. Node.js is a platform for building real-time programs for instance online games and chats. It functions faster than similar platforms as it processes the data in little portions all the time and doesn't wait for users to submit a substantial piece of data which shall need more time to be processed. The 3 web accelerators are provided with all Hepsia-based VPS solutions and come with several hundred MBs of dedicated memory.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers
In case you pick Hepsia as the hosting CP for your new dedicated server, you shall have Memcached, Varnish and Node.js at your disposal for speeding up your Internet sites. Memcached can reduce the load on the server by lowering the queries your script-driven Internet sites make because it caches database responses. This web accelerator is great for dynamic websites built with WordPress, Joomla™
and comparable scripts. Varnish, which is known as an HTTP reverse proxy, caches whole pages the first time a new website visitor opens them. It can be employed to speed up any sort of Internet site because it delivers the cached content faster than the web server each time a customer opens the same webpage again. You could use Node.js for online apps which demand real-time server-client interaction like online chats or booking sites. In contrast to other platforms that wait for the user to fill everything on a form, Node.js processes the information piece by piece as the user fills each box, so it works much faster and more effectively. All dedicated server
packages feature several gigabytes of memory dedicated to those 3 web accelerators.
