A web accelerator is a software that speeds up a site, usually by caching its content. There are various types of accelerators, but in the typical case this kind of apps cache static content or database responses and supply them in lieu of the web server, as a consequence boosting the performance of a site noticeably. The latter is achievable because accelerator apps work faster than a hosting server and not only will a website work better, but the server load shall also decrease, which will allow you to run heavy sites with less resources. We offer three web accelerators with our hosting solutions, which will permit you to accelerate any type of Internet site. In comparison, most Internet hosting service providers don't offer any web accelerators or provide only one, which limits your choice of web apps in case you would like to employ such software.
Web Accelerators in Cloud Hosting
If you get one of our cloud hosting plans, you'll have 3 popular web accelerators at your disposal and you will be able to access them directly using the Hepsia Control Panel which is included with our solutions. Varnish is one of the most widely used ones and it can considerably speed up any website as it caches the pages a website visitor opens for the first time and provides them every time that visitor opens them again. Because Varnish functions considerably faster than any web server, the loading speed of any Internet site using the accelerator shall improve noticeably. Memcached is used to cache database and API calls and responses between a site visitor and a web server, so it is similar to Varnish, but is used primarily for database-driven Internet sites. Since the Internet site shall connect to its database a lot less, the overall server load will be minimized considerably. The 3rd accelerator, Node.js, is employed for scalable online programs like chats and booking websites as it processes info in real time the instant it is entered on the site by the users. Based on the package you choose, these accelerators could be available or may be an optional upgrade.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you opt for one of our semi-dedicated server plans, you will be able to work with Varnish, Memcached and Node.js - three powerful web accelerators. Varnish is a multi-purpose app that caches websites the first time a website visitor opens them and provides them instead of the hosting server if the guest opens them again nearly 300% quicker. Memcached caches API and database calls and responses to ensure the server does not need to process each and every request, which makes it suitable for database-driven Internet sites, for instance ones designed with Joomla or WordPress. Node.js is used to develop web programs which function in real-time including chats or accommodation booking sites and it processes each bit of info as soon as the user enters it rather than waiting for large pieces of info to be accumulated. The Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with our semi-dedicated plans will permit you to choose how many instances of every accelerator will work at a time and just how much memory they will use.
Web Accelerators in VPS Servers
If you obtain a VPS server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you shall be able to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your Internet sites. All three accelerators are integrated in our solutions by default and feature dedicated memory of a few hundred MBs. Node.js is used to develop scalable programs where real-time interaction is needed - booking sites, online games, chats, and so on. It processes the info in smaller bits as the user is entering it, as a result it works much faster than other platforms that wait for the users to input one large piece of information. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator that functions as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it in case the same site visitor opens the same webpage again, which can speed any site several times because Varnish functions a lot quicker than any hosting server. Memcached is employed for caching API and database responses, therefore it is ideal for script-driven Internet sites like WordPress and Joomla. This web accelerator can easily minimize the load on your hosting server since it shall reduce the number of database queries your websites make.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers
Memcached, Node.js and Varnish are provided by default with all of our dedicated servers which are ordered with Hepsia as the web hosting CP. These 3 web accelerators include several gbs of dedicated memory and you may use them to speed up any kind of Internet site. Memcached can greatly minimize the load on the server if you have script-driven Internet sites as it caches database responses, so it lessens the number of database queries which the hosting server has to deal with. Node.js shall enable you to create scalable applications with real-time user-server interaction such as chats or dining booking sites. Its advantage over very similar platforms is that it processes info the instant the end user enters it, so all the data is managed faster and in small pieces. Varnish caches whole webpages the first time a website visitor opens them and provides them each time the same website visitor opens them again, which makes it a universal accelerator for any sort of websites. As it works quicker than any web server, it can speed up a site at least several times and for that reason, Varnish is among the most popular web accelerators on the market.
