What precisely do web accelerators do? What can you do to raise your Internet site's loading speed?
A web accelerator is a software program which speeds up a website generally by caching content and providing it instead of the web server. Such applications can be employed for both static and dynamic sites since there are different accelerators that can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The main advantage of employing a web accelerator is that a given website will perform noticeably faster without employing extra system resources. Just the opposite, such a site will need much less resources to operate since the web accelerator will tackle most requests instead of the server. Contrary to many firms that do not offer web accelerators with their plans or offer only 1, we offer three different ones that'll allow you to speed up your sites regardless of their type or content.
Web Accelerators in Cloud Website Hosting
In case you host your websites inside a cloud website hosting
account from us, you will have three popular web accelerators to select from if you would like to enhance the sites' functionality. Memcached is employed for database-driven sites and it caches the calls and requests between a website and its database, so it could decrease the load of such Internet sites significantly. Varnish caches whole web pages the first time a website visitor opens them and delivers them from there on if the same website visitor opens them again. It does that much faster than the web server, so it can increase the loading speed of any Internet site approximately 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time programs that operates on the web server and not inside the visitor's world-wide web browser. It is used for accommodation booking, chats and other applications where plenty of data needs to be processed in real time. The availability of these accelerators depends upon the hosting solution that you choose - they might come by default or as an upgrade. In both cases, you'll be able to add more instances or more memory for every one of them.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server
packages shall permit you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js - 3 of the most effective web accelerators on the market. Memcached is employed to cache database and API calls and responses, so it could easily speed up any script-driven Internet site. You can use it for any Internet site designed with WordPress or Joomla™
, for instance. Varnish is also referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy and it's a general-purpose caching platform that may be employed for any type of sites. Depending on the content, it could improve the performance of a website as much as 300%. Node.js is an innovative 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 pieces instead of waiting for the user to submit one sizeable chunk of data. The accelerators may be enabled for any site via the Hepsia Control Panel and you'll be able to select how many instances of each of them will work and how much memory they will employ.
Web Accelerators in VPS Servers
If you choose your VPS server
to be incorporated with the Hepsia CP, you'll be able to use Varnish, Memcached and Node.js - 3 of the most commonly used web accelerators. Varnish caches websites the first time they're visited and delivers them every time the same person visits them again, which can speed up any sort of website several times. Memcached is employed for dynamic script apps such as Joomla™
and WordPress since it caches database requests and responses, thus the database web server will not have to process the same website each and every time guests open it if the same content should be shown. Node.js is a platform for building real-time programs for instance online games and chats. It operates faster than similar platforms since it processes the information in small pieces all the time and doesn't wait for users to submit a sizable piece of data that will need more time to be processed. The 3 web accelerators are provided with all Hepsia-based VPS plans and feature several hundred MBs of dedicated memory.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers
Memcached, Node.js and Varnish are provided by default with all our dedicated servers
which are ordered with Hepsia as the hosting CP. These three web accelerators include several gbs of dedicated memory and you could use them to speed up any type of site. Memcached can drastically lessen the load on the server if you have script-driven Internet sites since it caches database responses, so it decreases the amount of database queries which the hosting server has to handle. Node.js shall allow you to build scalable applications with real-time user-server interaction like chats or dining booking sites. Its advantage over very similar platforms is that it processes data the moment the user enters it, so all the data is managed swifter and in small pieces. Varnish caches entire Internet pages the first time a site visitor opens them and delivers them each time the same visitor opens them again, that makes it a universal accelerator for any type of Internet sites. Since it functions faster than any hosting server, it could speed up a website at least several times and for that reason, Varnish is one of the most popular web accelerators on the market.
