A web accelerator is a server-side program which speeds up a website. Such a piece of software could work in different ways based on the website content, but in the typical situation all such apps cache content and deliver it instead of the web server. That is valid for both dynamic and static Internet sites since the cached content could be simple text or database responses and the reward of employing a web accelerator isn't just the faster loading website, but also the lessened overall load on the hosting server. This way, you can employ a lower-end hosting package that'll also cost less while your visitors can still enjoy superior browsing speeds. Several firms provide web accelerators with their hosting deals and they usually offer only 1, while we offer three different ones that'll permit you to improve the performance of any sort of website substantially.
Web Accelerators in Shared Website Hosting
Our shared website hosting
plans feature three web accelerators that you will be able to use depending on the sites which you would like to run. Memcached is employed to cache database or API calls and responses, which can considerably boost the performance of dynamic Internet sites. Varnish is a popular HTTP accelerator which caches pages and provides them to the site visitors way quicker than the web server after the first time they open them. Node.js is an event-driven platform used for scalable real-time applications including booking websites. Depending upon the web hosting package you select, these three applications could already be included or might be optional upgrades. In any case, you will be able to choose how many instances of each of them will be at your disposal and what amount of memory they ought to employ. These accelerators are provided only by several web hosting companies, including ours, and they could increase the speed of your web apps drastically.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You'll be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the Internet sites hosted within your semi-dedicated hosting
account in accordance with the nature of the website content. Memcached, for instance, caches database requests, therefore it is an excellent choice for any script app like WordPress or Joomla™
. This way, the database server won't have to process the very same request if many users open a webpage with the same content. Varnish is comparable, but it's a general-purpose accelerator because it caches any kind of content the first time a visitor opens a site. If this web page is opened again by the same website visitor, it will be delivered by Varnish at a much better speed compared to the server. Employing this web accelerator will decrease the load generated by your Internet sites considerably. Last, but not least, Node.js shall permit you to produce scalable web applications like hotel booking sites or chats. Its advantage over very similar platforms is that it doesn't wait for a client to submit a substantial piece of data, but processes whatever the customer is entering in real-time. The 3 web accelerators are available within the Hepsia Control Panel and you shall be able to pick how many instances of each and every one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they can employ.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Web Hosting
Memcached, Varnish and Node.js come with all dedicated servers
ordered with the Hepsia hosting CP and in accordance with the plan that you select, you shall also have several gigabytes of dedicated memory for them. Memcached can minimize the web server load by lowering the amount of queries that have to be addressed as it caches database calls and responses. You'll be able to use it on any site which uses an API or a database - for instance, 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 visitor opens them. The accelerator delivers the web pages if the very same visitor opens them later and considering the fact that it does that much faster than the hosting server, the visitor shall be able to look through your site at least a couple of times faster. That's why Varnish is sometimes referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is an advanced platform that will allow you to build booking sites, web chats and other applications in which real-time server-user interaction is needed. It processes the information in small portions as the user fills different boxes and does not wait for all boxes to be filled and processed as one large piece of info, which makes Node.js much faster than similar apps.
