A web accelerator is a server-side application which quickens a website. Such a piece of software may work in different ways depending on the site content, but in the general situation all such apps cache content and deliver it instead of the server. That is valid for both static and dynamic Internet sites because the cached content may be simple text or database responses and the benefit of employing a web accelerator isn't only the faster loading Internet site, but also the reduced overall load on the web server. That way, you'll be able to employ a lower-end hosting solution which will also cost less while your visitors will be able to still enjoy high browsing speeds. Several companies offer web accelerators with their hosting packages and they often offer just 1, while we offer three different ones that'll allow you to enhance the performance of any type of website noticeably.
Web Accelerators in Shared Web Hosting
If you purchase one of our shared web hosting
solutions, you'll have 3 widely used web accelerators at your disposal and you will be able to access them directly through the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with our plans. Varnish is one of the most well-known ones and it can greatly accelerate any site as it caches the pages which a website visitor opens for the first time and provides them each time that guest opens them again. Given that Varnish functions faster than any hosting server, the loading speed of any site using the accelerator will grow considerably. Memcached is employed to cache database and API calls and responses between a visitor and a server, so it is much like Varnish, but is employed mainly for database-driven Internet sites. Because the site will connect to its database way less, the overall hosting server load will be minimized significantly. The 3rd accelerator, Node.js, is employed for scalable online applications like chats and booking Internet sites since it processes data in real time the instant it is entered on the site by the users. Dependant upon the plan you choose, these accelerators may be available or might be an optional upgrade.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You will be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the Internet sites hosted in your semi-dedicated hosting
account based on the nature of the site content. Memcached, in particular, caches database requests, so it is a superb option for any script app such as WordPress or Joomla™
. That way, the database server won't have to process the same request if many users open a page with the same content. Varnish is very similar, but it's a general-purpose accelerator since it caches any sort of content the first time a website visitor opens a site. If that page is opened again by the very same website visitor, it will be delivered by Varnish at a much better speed compared to the hosting server. Using this web accelerator shall minimize the load produced by your websites drastically. Last, but not least, Node.js shall enable you to build scalable web apps like hotel booking websites or chats. Its advantage over comparable platforms is that it does not wait for a client to submit a large piece of data, but processes whatever the client is entering in real-time. The 3 web accelerators are available in the Hepsia Control Panel and you'll be able to choose how many instances of every one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they can use.
Web Accelerators in VPS Web Hosting
In case you obtain a virtual private server
with the Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your Internet sites. All three accelerators are integrated inside our packages by default and offer dedicated memory of several hundred MBs. Node.js is used to build scalable apps where real-time interaction is necessary - booking sites, online games, chats, and so on. It processes the data in small portions as the user is entering it, therefore it operates quicker than other platforms which wait for the users to enter one sizeable bit of data. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator that works as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it in the event that the same site visitor opens the same webpage again, which can easily speed any website several times since Varnish functions a lot quicker than any web server. Memcached is employed for caching API and database responses, so it's appropriate for script-driven Internet sites like WordPress and Joomla™
. This web accelerator will be able to minimize the load on your web server because it will lower the amount of database queries that your Internet sites make.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers Hosting
Memcached, Node.js and Varnish are provided by default with all of our dedicated servers
that are ordered with Hepsia as the website hosting CP. These three web accelerators feature several gbs of dedicated memory and you can employ them to speed up any kind of site. Memcached can significantly lessen the load on the web server if you have script-driven sites since it caches database responses, so it minimizes the number of database queries the web server has to deal with. Node.js will enable you to build scalable apps with real-time user-server interaction like chats or dining booking sites. Its advantage over similar platforms is that it processes info the instant the end user enters it, so all the information is handled swifter and in small portions. Varnish caches entire Internet pages the first time a site visitor opens them and provides them each and every time the same guest opens them again, that makes it a universal accelerator for any type of sites. Because it works quicker than any server, it can speed up an Internet site at least several times and due to this fact, Varnish is one of the most widely used web accelerators on the market.
