Find out what specifically web accelerators are and in what ways you'll be able to take full advantage of them to enhance your website’s performance.
A web accelerator is a server-side app that speeds up a website. Such a piece of software may work in different ways based on the site content, but in the general case all such apps cache content and deliver it instead of the server. This is valid for both dynamic and static Internet sites because the cached content could be simple text or database responses and the benefit of using a web accelerator isn't just the faster loading site, but also the lessened overall load on the hosting server. This way, you'll be able to use a lower-end hosting plan that will also cost less while your site visitors can still enjoy fast browsing speeds. Several businesses supply web accelerators with their hosting packages and they often offer only one, while we offer 3 different ones that will permit you to enhance the performance of any type of website significantly.
Web Accelerators in Cloud Web Hosting
Our cloud web hosting solutions come with three web accelerators that you will be able to employ depending on the Internet sites that you'd like to run. Memcached is employed to cache database or API calls and responses, which can considerably boost the efficiency of dynamic websites. Varnish is a popular HTTP accelerator that caches web pages and provides them to the site visitors faster than the web server after the first time they open them. Node.js is an event-driven platform used for scalable real-time apps for example booking sites. Depending upon the hosting plan you choose, these 3 applications may already be included or could be optional upgrades. In either case, you'll be able to select how many instances of each of them will be at your disposal and how much memory they ought to use. These accelerators are offered only by a handful of web hosting service providers, including ours, and they can increase the speed of your web programs drastically.
- Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated HostingYou will be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the sites hosted within your semi-dedicated hosting account based on the nature of the website content. Memcached, for instance, caches database requests, so it is a fantastic choice for any script app like WordPress or Joomla™. That way, the database hosting server shall not have to process the exact same request if a number of users open a webpage with the same content. Varnish is very similar, but it is a general-purpose accelerator since it caches any sort of content the first time a guest opens a site. If that page is opened again by the exact same website visitor, it will be provided by Varnish at a greater speed compared to the hosting server. Employing this web accelerator can lessen the load created by your Internet sites drastically. Last, but not least, Node.js shall enable you to produce scalable web applications like hotel booking Internet sites or chats. Its advantage over similar platforms is that it doesn't wait for a customer to submit a large piece of info, but processes whatever the client is inputting in real-time. The 3 web accelerators are available in the Hepsia CP and you'll be able to pick how many instances of each and every one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they can use.
- Web Accelerators in VPS HostingIn case you choose your virtual private server to be integrated with the Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to use Varnish, Memcached and Node.js - 3 of the most popular web accelerators. Varnish caches pages the first time they're visited and delivers them every time the same individual visits them again, which will boost any type of website several times. Memcached is employed for dynamic script applications such as Joomla™ and WordPress since it caches database requests and responses, as a consequence the database web server shall not need to process the same webpage every time guests open it if the same content should be displayed. Node.js is a platform for building real-time apps such as online games and chats. It operates faster than similar platforms as it processes the data in tiny bits all the time and doesn't wait for users to input a large piece of data that shall require more time to be processed. The three web accelerators are provided with all Hepsia-based VPS solutions and feature several hundred megabytes of dedicated memory.
- Web Accelerators in Dedicated Web HostingIf you get a dedicated server from our company and you pick Hepsia as the hosting CP, you will be able to use Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your websites. All solutions include several gigabytes of memory dedicated to those accelerators and the exact amount depends on the package that you select. Node.js is used for scalable online applications including browser games or hotel booking and it processes the data immediately 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 speed up, but also the load on the server will minimize because there shall be less database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it's not at all limited to databases. Rather, it caches whole web pages once a website visitor opens them and delivers them instead of the server every time the same visitor opens them afterwards. As Varnish processes web requests considerably faster than any hosting server, the performance of a site using this accelerator may increase around 300%.
