A web accelerator is a server-side app that speeds up an Internet site. Such a piece of software may operate in different ways based on the site content, but in the general case all such applications cache content and deliver it instead of the hosting server. That's valid for both static and dynamic sites since the cached content can be simple text or database responses and the reward of employing a web accelerator isn't only the faster loading Internet site, but also the minimized overall load on the web server. That way, you may use a lower-end hosting package that will also cost less while your site visitors can still enjoy fast browsing speeds. Several firms offer web accelerators with their hosting packages and they frequently offer only one, while we offer 3 different ones that will permit you to improve the performance of any sort of Internet site significantly.
Web Accelerators in Shared Hosting
We provide 3 of the most popular web accelerators together with our shared hosting solutions and based upon what plan you'll choose when you sign up, they might already be available or they may be an optional upgrade. Varnish is the most widely used one of them and it can be employed for any kind of website. It caches the pages the first time a site visitor opens them and provides them at a much faster speed compared to the hosting server every time that a website visitor opens them again. Memcached is employed to cache API and database calls, so it can increase the speed of dynamic websites such as online stores, forums or social networks. Node.js is employed for scalable web apps and it operates in real-time, which makes it excellent for server-side data processing - chats, browser games, booking portals, etc. You shall be able to pick how much memory these accelerators shall use and how many instances of each one shall run from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers
The Hepsia CP that is included with our semi-dedicated server packages shall enable you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your websites. Memcached is among the most popular accelerators since it can increase the speed of any API or database-driven site by caching requests and responses, as a result the server won't have to process identical requests time and time again. The platform is perfect for Internet sites developed with programs such as Joomla, Mambo or WordPress. Varnish is an efficient accelerator which caches any sort of content and is also known as an HTTP reverse proxy. It caches webpages that are opened by a site visitor for the first time and provides them each time that same website visitor opens them again. Varnish can accelerate a site several times since it delivers content quicker than any web server. Node.js is a platform used for scalable real-time apps like chats, web browser games or social networks. It processes information in small bits as soon as a user enters anything, so it operates faster than similar platforms in which users submit large portions of info that require time to be processed. You can select the number of instances and the dedicated memory for each of the 3 accelerators via your CP.
Web Accelerators in VPS Servers
In case you choose your VPS server to be set up with the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to use Varnish, Memcached and Node.js - 3 of the most widespread web accelerators. Varnish caches webpages the first time they're visited and delivers them each time the same person visits them again, which can speed up any sort of site several times. Memcached is used for dynamic script programs like Joomla and WordPress as it caches database requests and responses, as a consequence the database hosting server shall not need to process the very same website each and every time visitors open it in the event that the same content should be displayed. Node.js is a platform for developing real-time programs for example online games and chats. It operates faster than similar platforms as it processes the info in tiny bits all the time and does not wait for users to submit a large piece of data that shall require more time to be processed. The three web accelerators are offered with all Hepsia-based VPS plans and feature several hundred megabytes of dedicated memory.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers
In case you acquire a dedicated server from our firm and you select Hepsia as the hosting CP, you shall be able to use Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your Internet sites. All plans include several gigabytes of memory dedicated to those accelerators and the actual amount depends on the package that you select. Node.js is employed for scalable online applications including browser games or hotel booking and it processes the data instantly as the user enters it, which makes it much faster than comparable platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you use it for a script-driven site, not only will the Internet site speed up, but also the load on the web server will minimize as there shall be a lesser amount of database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it's not limited to databases. Instead, it caches entire websites once a visitor opens them and provides them instead of the hosting server each time the same visitor opens them afterwards. Because Varnish processes web requests faster than any web server, the efficiency of a website using this accelerator can increase around 300%.
