A web accelerator is a piece of software that speeds up a site typically by caching content and providing it instead of the hosting server. Such programs can be used for both dynamic and static Internet sites as there are a variety of accelerators that can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The advantage of using a web accelerator is that a given site will perform noticeably faster without using additional system resources. Quite the opposite, this kind of a website will require a lesser amount of resources to function as the web accelerator will deal with most requests rather than the server. In contrast to many firms which do not offer web accelerators with their packages or offer only one, we offer 3 different ones which will permit you to speed up your sites regardless of their type or content.
Web Accelerators in Cloud Hosting
When you purchase one of our cloud hosting plans, you'll have 3 widely used web accelerators at your disposal and you will be able to access them directly through the Hepsia CP which is included with our packages. Varnish is one of the most popular ones and it could greatly accelerate any site since it caches the web pages which a visitor opens for the first time and delivers them each and every time that website visitor opens them again. Since Varnish operates much faster than any server, the loading speed of any site using the accelerator shall 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 used mainly for database-driven Internet sites. Since the Internet site shall connect to its database way less, the overall hosting server load will be reduced substantially. The last accelerator, Node.js, is used for scalable online apps including chats and booking websites as it processes info in real time the instant it is entered on the website by the users. Based on the plan you select, these accelerators could be available or may be an optional upgrade.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers
You'll be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the websites hosted in your semi-dedicated server account based on the nature of the website content. Memcached, in particular, caches database requests, therefore it's a fantastic choice for any script app like WordPress or Joomla. That way, the database web server won't need to process the exact same request if a number of users open a webpage with the same content. Varnish is similar, but it's a general-purpose accelerator because it caches any kind of content the first time a visitor opens an Internet site. In case that web page is opened again by the same visitor, it shall be delivered by Varnish at a much better speed compared to the server. Employing this web accelerator shall decrease the load produced by your Internet sites drastically. Last, but not least, Node.js shall enable you to build scalable web programs like hotel booking Internet sites or chats. Its advantage over similar platforms is that it does not wait for a customer to submit a large piece of data, but processes whatever the client is entering in real-time. The three web accelerators are available within the Hepsia Control Panel and you'll be able to select how many instances of each one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they can employ.
Web Accelerators in VPS Servers
We provide Memcached, Node.js and Varnish with all VPS servers which are purchased with the Hepsia CP. Your server shall also come with a few hundred MBs of dedicated memory for these accelerators and the exact amount would depend on the plan that you pick. Memcached is used for script-driven sites as it caches database responses, consequently reducing the amount of queries which a script sends to its database. It can be used for any script including WordPress or Joomla. Node.js is an effective platform for building web apps for example booking Internet sites and chats. The real-time interaction between users and a web server is performed by processing small bits of info as soon any user inputs anything on the website. By comparison, other platforms await customers to input a whole lot of information before they process it, as a result they work slower. Varnish is a multi-purpose accelerator which caches entire pages and delivers them instead of the hosting server at a faster rate. It is also known as an HTTP reverse proxy and it can speed up any sort of website.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers
Memcached, Varnish and Node.js are available with all dedicated servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and based on the plan that you opt for, you will also have several gigabytes of dedicated memory for them. Memcached will minimize the server load by lowering the amount of queries which have to be dealt with because it caches database calls and responses. You shall be able to use it on every site which uses an API or a database - for instance, any site built with WordPress or Joomla. Varnish could improve the performance of any type of Internet site by caching whole webpages the first time a guest opens them. The accelerator delivers the web pages if the same visitor opens them afterwards and given that it does that faster than the hosting server, the website visitor will be able to surf your site at least a few times faster. That is why Varnish is sometimes categorised as an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is an advanced platform that'll permit you to build booking websites, web chats and other apps where real-time server-user interaction is necessary. It processes the data in small parts as the user fills different boxes and does not wait for all boxes to be filled and processed as one big piece of data, which makes Node.js much faster than similar applications.
