Know what exactly web accelerators are and exactly how you'll be able to make the most of them to supercharge your website’s efficiency.
A web accelerator is a program that speeds up an Internet site, usually by caching its content. There are different sorts of accelerators, but in the typical case such applications cache static content or database responses and deliver them instead of the server, as a consequence boosting the performance of a website significantly. The latter is achievable because accelerator apps work faster than a hosting server and not simply will a website work better, but the server load shall also lessen, which will permit you to run heavy websites with less resources. We provide 3 web accelerators with our hosting solutions, which will permit you to accelerate any type of site. In comparison, most website hosting firms do not provide any web accelerators or offer one, which limits your choice of web applications in case you'd like to employ this kind of software.
Web Accelerators in Website Hosting
If you acquire one of our website hosting plans, you will have 3 widely used web accelerators at your disposal and you will be able to access them directly via the Hepsia CP that is included with our packages. Varnish is one of the most popular ones and it can significantly speed up any site because it caches the pages that a website visitor opens for the first time and provides them each and every time that website visitor opens them again. Since Varnish functions faster than any web server, the loading speed of any website using the accelerator will raise significantly. Memcached is used to cache database and API calls and responses between a visitor and a web server, so it's similar to Varnish, but is employed mainly for database-driven Internet sites. Because the website will connect to its database a lot less, the overall hosting server load shall be reduced substantially. The 3rd accelerator, Node.js, is employed for scalable online apps including chats and booking websites as it processes data in real time as soon as it is entered on the webpage by the users. Dependant upon the plan you pick, these accelerators might be available or could be an optional upgrade.
- Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated HostingOur semi-dedicated hosting plans shall permit you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js - 3 of the most powerful web accelerators on the market. Memcached is used to cache database and API calls and responses, therefore it could easily speed up any script-driven site. You could use it for any site built with WordPress or Joomla™, for instance. Varnish is also known as an HTTP reverse proxy and it is a general-purpose caching platform that can be used for any sort of websites. Depending on the content, it could improve the performance of an Internet site as much as 300%. Node.js is an advanced system used to build scalable Internet apps that process data in real time for instance booking portals. Its advantage is that in contrast to similar platforms, it processes data continuously and in small portions rather than waiting for the user to submit one big piece of data. The accelerators can be enabled for any website from the Hepsia CP and you will be able to pick how many instances of each one of them will work and how much memory they will use.
- Web Accelerators in VPSWe provide Memcached, Node.js and Varnish with all virtual private servers that are purchased with the Hepsia Control Panel. Your hosting server will also include a few hundred megabytes of dedicated memory for these accelerators and the specific amount would be determined by the package deal that you select. Memcached is employed for script-driven Internet sites as it caches database responses, as a result lowering the amount of queries a script sends to its database. It could be employed for any script including WordPress or Joomla™. Node.js is a highly effective platform for developing web programs including booking Internet sites and chats. The real-time interaction between end users and a hosting server is carried out by processing smaller pieces of data as soon any user inputs anything on the site. By comparison, other platforms wait for users to enter a considerable amount of data before they process it, thus they function slower. Varnish is a multi-purpose accelerator that caches entire webpages and delivers them instead of the web server at a considerably faster rate. It is also referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy and it can effortlessly speed up any type of website.
- Web Accelerators in Dedicated HostingMemcached, Varnish and Node.js are available with all dedicated servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting CP and based on the plan that you select, you will also have several gigabytes of dedicated memory for them. Memcached will minimize the hosting server load by lowering the number of queries which have to be addressed because it caches database calls and responses. You shall be able to use it on any site that uses an API or a database - as an example, any site developed with WordPress or Joomla™. Varnish could improve the performance of any sort of site by caching whole webpages the first time a guest opens them. The accelerator provides the web pages if the same visitor opens them later and given that it does that way quicker than the web server, the website visitor shall be able to look through your website at least several times faster. That is why Varnish is often referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is an advanced platform which will permit you to build booking sites, web chats and other apps in which real-time server-user interaction is needed. It processes the info in tiny bits as the user fills different boxes and doesn't wait for all boxes to be filled and processed as one sizeable piece of data, which makes Node.js much quicker than similar programs.
