A web accelerator is a server-side program which accelerates a website. Such a piece of software can work in different ways depending upon the website content, but in the typical situation all such apps cache content and deliver it instead of the hosting server. That's valid for both static and dynamic sites as the cached content could be simple text or database responses and the advantage of using a web accelerator isn't just the faster loading website, but also the minimized overall load on the hosting server. That way, you'll be able to employ a lower-end hosting plan which will also cost less while your website visitors could still enjoy superior browsing speeds. Few service providers offer web accelerators with their hosting packages and they typically offer only 1, while we offer 3 different ones that will enable you to enhance the performance of any sort of website significantly.
Web Accelerators in Shared Web Hosting
In case you acquire one of our shared web hosting
packages, you will have three popular web accelerators at your disposal and you will be able to access them directly using the Hepsia CP which is included with our solutions. Varnish is one of the most widely used ones and it can tremendously speed up any Internet site as it caches the pages which a site visitor opens for the first time and delivers them each time that website visitor opens them again. Given that Varnish works much faster than any hosting server, the loading speed of any site using the accelerator shall increase substantially. Memcached is used to cache database and API calls and responses between a site visitor and a server, so it is much like Varnish, but is employed largely for database-driven websites. Since the site shall connect to its database significantly less, the overall server load shall be minimized notably. The 3rd accelerator, Node.js, is employed for scalable online apps like chats and booking Internet sites since it processes information in real time the moment it is entered on the webpage by the users. Based on the plan you pick, these accelerators could be available or could be an optional upgrade.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you go for one of our semi-dedicated server
packages, you shall be able to work with Varnish, Memcached and Node.js - 3 effective web accelerators. Varnish is a multi-purpose application which caches webpages the first time a visitor opens them and provides them instead of the hosting server if the visitor opens them again approximately 300% faster. Memcached caches API and database calls and responses in order that the hosting server does not need to process each request, which makes it perfect for database-driven Internet sites, such as ones built with Joomla™
or WordPress. Node.js is employed to build web apps which operate in real-time like chats or accommodation booking websites and it processes every bit of information the moment the user types it instead of waiting for massive pieces of information to be accumulated. The Hepsia CP which is included with our semi-dedicated solutions will allow you to select how many instances of each accelerator will work at a time and how much memory they'll use.
Web Accelerators in VPS Servers
We provide Memcached, Node.js and Varnish with all VPS servers
which are purchased with the Hepsia Control Panel. Your hosting server will also include several hundred megabytes of dedicated memory for these accelerators and the actual amount would be determined by the plan that you pick. Memcached is employed for script-driven websites since it caches database responses, as a result reducing the number of queries which a script sends to its database. It can be used for any script including WordPress or Joomla™
. Node.js is an efficient platform for creating web programs such as booking sites and chats. The real-time interaction between end users and a server is done by processing little pieces of data as soon any user enters anything on the webpage. In contrast, other platforms wait for users to input loads of information before they process it, consequently they function more slowly. Varnish is a multi-purpose accelerator that caches entire webpages and delivers them instead of the hosting server at a considerably faster rate. It's also often called an HTTP reverse proxy and it can speed up any kind of site.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers
If you purchase a dedicated server
from our firm and you pick Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel, you will be able to use Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your websites. All packages feature several gigabytes of memory dedicated to those accelerators and the specific amount depends on the package deal you choose. Node.js is employed for scalable online applications including browser games or hotel booking and it processes the data right away as the client enters it, which makes it considerably quicker than comparable platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you employ it for a script-driven website, not simply will the Internet site work faster, but also the load on the web server will decrease since there shall be considerably less database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it is not limited to databases. Instead, it caches whole web pages once a visitor opens them and provides them instead of the hosting server every time the same visitor opens them later. As Varnish processes web requests much quicker than any hosting server, the efficiency of a website using this accelerator may increase up to 300%.
