A web accelerator is a server-side program that speeds up an Internet site. Such a piece of software can work in different ways depending upon the website content, but in the typical case all such apps cache content and deliver it instead of the hosting server. That is valid for both dynamic and static websites since the cached content may be simple text or database responses and the advantage of employing a web accelerator isn't just the faster loading site, but also the lessened overall load on the machine. This way, you may employ a lower-end hosting package which will also cost less while your website visitors will be able to still enjoy high browsing speeds. Few service providers offer web accelerators with their hosting packages and they typically offer just one, while we offer three different ones that'll allow you to boost the performance of any sort of site substantially.
Web Accelerators in Web Hosting
We provide three of the most popular web accelerators together with our web hosting packages and based upon what plan you shall pick when you sign up, they may already be available or they might be an optional upgrade. Varnish is the most widely used one of them and it may be used for any type of Internet site. It caches the web pages the first time a website visitor opens them and delivers them at a much faster speed compared to the web server each time that a visitor opens them again. Memcached is employed to cache API and database calls, so it can easily boost the speed of dynamic Internet sites like online stores, community forums or social networks. Node.js is used for scalable web programs and it works in real-time, which makes it suitable for server-side data processing - chats, browser games, booking portals, etc. You shall be able to select what amount of memory these accelerators shall use and how many instances of each and every one shall run from your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you select one of our semi-dedicated server plans, you'll be able to employ Varnish, Memcached and Node.js - three efficient web accelerators. Varnish is a multi-purpose program that caches pages the first time a visitor opens them and delivers them instead of the hosting server if the guest opens them again approximately 300% faster. Memcached caches API and database calls and responses so that the server doesn't need to process each request, which makes it suitable for database-driven Internet sites, for example ones developed with Joomla or WordPress. Node.js is used to create web programs that operate in real-time such as chats or accommodation booking websites and it processes each bit of information the moment the user enters it as opposed to waiting for large chunks of information to be accumulated. The Hepsia Control Panel which comes with our semi-dedicated packages will allow you to pick 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, Node.js and Varnish are available by default with all of our dedicated servers that are ordered with Hepsia as the website hosting CP. These 3 web accelerators include several gbs of dedicated memory and you can employ them to speed up any type of site. Memcached can greatly lessen the load on the hosting server if you have script-driven websites since it caches database responses, thus it minimizes the amount of database queries which the server has to handle. Node.js shall allow you to create scalable programs with real-time user-server interaction such as chats or dining booking sites. Its advantage over similar platforms is that it processes info the moment the user enters it, so all the information is taken care of faster and in small bits. Varnish caches whole pages the first time a visitor opens them and delivers them every time the same website visitor opens them again, which makes it a universal accelerator for any kind of websites. As it works quicker than any hosting server, it could speed up a site at least several times and because of this, Varnish is one of the most widely used web accelerators on the market.
