A web accelerator is a server-side program that speeds up a website. Such a piece of software can operate in different ways depending upon the site content, but in the typical case all such programs cache content and deliver it instead of the hosting server. This is valid for both static and dynamic sites as the cached content may be simple text or database responses and the reward of employing a web accelerator isn't simply the faster loading Internet site, but also the smaller overall load on the server. This way, you could use a lower-end hosting solution which will also cost less while your visitors will be able to still enjoy fast browsing speeds. Several firms provide web accelerators with their hosting plans and they usually offer just 1, while we offer three different ones that'll permit you to enhance the performance of any kind of website significantly.
Web Accelerators in Web Hosting
We provide 3 of the most popular web accelerators together with our web hosting packages and based upon what plan you'll pick when you sign up, they could already be available or they may be an optional upgrade. Varnish is the most popular one of them and it could be employed for any type of Internet site. It caches the pages the first time a site visitor opens them and delivers them at a faster speed compared to the web server every time that a visitor opens them again. Memcached is employed to cache API and database calls, so it can boost the speed of dynamic websites like online stores, community 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, and many others. You will be able to choose just how much memory these accelerators will use and how many instances of each and every one shall run from your Hepsia hosting CP.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you go for one of our semi-dedicated server solutions, you shall be able to take advantage of Varnish, Memcached and Node.js - 3 efficient web accelerators. Varnish is a multi-purpose application that caches web pages the first time a site visitor opens them and delivers them instead of the web server if the website visitor opens them again nearly 300% more quickly. Memcached caches API and database calls and responses so that the web server doesn't need to process each request, that makes it ideal for database-driven sites, such as ones designed with Joomla or WordPress. Node.js is employed to create web programs that work in real-time including chats or accommodation booking portals and it processes each and every bit of info the moment the user types it as opposed to waiting for big pieces of information to be accumulated. The Hepsia Control Panel that is included with our semi-dedicated packages shall enable you to choose how many instances of every accelerator shall work at a time and just how much memory they'll use.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers
Memcached, Varnish and Node.js are offered with all dedicated servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting CP and in accordance with the package which you opt for, you'll also have several gbs of dedicated memory for them. Memcached will reduce the server load by lowering the amount of queries which have to be addressed because it caches database calls and responses. You shall be able to use it on any site which uses an API or a database - for instance, any website developed with WordPress or Joomla. Varnish could enhance the performance of any sort of Internet site by caching whole pages the first time a visitor opens them. The accelerator delivers the pages if the exact same visitor opens them afterwards and since it does that considerably faster than the server, the website visitor will be able to look through your Internet site at least a few times faster. This is why Varnish is sometimes referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is a sophisticated platform which will allow you to develop booking websites, web chats and other apps in which real-time server-user interaction is necessary. It processes the information in tiny bits as the user fills different boxes and does not wait for all boxes to be filled and processed as one large chunk of data, which makes Node.js considerably faster than similar applications.
