A web accelerator is a server-side program which accelerates a website. Such a piece of software may work in different ways depending on the site content, but in the typical case all such apps cache content and deliver it instead of the web server. That's valid for both dynamic and static Internet sites because the cached content may be simple text or database responses and the advantage of employing a web accelerator isn't simply the faster loading site, but also the minimized overall load on the server. That way, you could use a lower-end hosting solution that will also cost less while your website visitors could still enjoy high browsing speeds. Several companies supply web accelerators with their hosting deals and they typically offer just one, while we offer 3 different ones which will enable you to improve the performance of any type of site considerably.
Web Accelerators in Cloud Hosting
We offer three of the most popular web accelerators together with our cloud hosting solutions and based on what plan you shall select when you sign up, they may already be available or they may be an optional upgrade. Varnish is the most popular one of them and it could be employed for any kind of website. It caches the web pages the first time a website visitor opens them and provides them at a faster speed compared to the hosting server each time that a visitor opens them again. Memcached is used to cache API and database calls, so it can easily increase the speed of dynamic sites such as online stores, community forums or social networks. Node.js is used for scalable web programs and it works in real-time, which makes it ideal for server-side data processing - chats, browser games, booking portals, and so on. You shall be able to select what amount of memory these accelerators shall use and how many instances of each shall run from your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You will be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the websites hosted within your semi-dedicated hosting account depending on the nature of the website content. Memcached, for instance, caches database requests, therefore it's a great choice for any script app like WordPress or Joomla. That way, the database server shall not have to process the same request if many users open a page with the same content. Varnish is comparable, but it's a general-purpose accelerator because it caches any type of content the first time a website visitor opens an Internet site. If that web page is opened again by the exact same guest, it will be provided by Varnish at a much higher speed compared to the hosting server. Using this web accelerator can minimize the load created by your websites considerably. Last, but not least, Node.js will allow you to build scalable web programs like hotel booking Internet sites or chats. Its advantage over similar platforms is that it does not wait for a client to submit a large piece of data, but processes whatever the user is typing in real-time. The three web accelerators are available in the Hepsia CP and you shall be able to select how many instances of every one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they may use.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Hosting
Memcached, Varnish and Node.js come with all dedicated servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and based on the package deal which you choose, you shall also have several gbs of dedicated memory for them. Memcached will lessen the web server load by lowering the number of queries that have to be handled since it caches database calls and responses. You will be able to use it on every site which uses an API or a database - as an illustration, any site created with WordPress or Joomla. Varnish can enhance the performance of any kind of Internet site by caching whole webpages the first time a guest opens them. The accelerator delivers the webpages if the same visitor opens them later on and because it does that considerably faster than the web server, the website visitor will be able to look through your website at least several times faster. That is why Varnish is often categorised as an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is a sophisticated platform that'll allow you to create booking sites, web chats and other apps where real-time server-user interaction is necessary. It processes the information in tiny pieces as the client fills different boxes and doesn't wait for all boxes to be filled and processed as one large piece of info, which makes Node.js considerably faster than similar applications.
