A web accelerator is an application that accelerates a website, typically by caching its content. There are various kinds of accelerators, but in the general case this sort of applications cache static content or database responses and supply them instead of the server, thus boosting the performance of a website drastically. The latter can be done because accelerator programs work faster than a web server and not only will a website function better, but the server load will also decline, which will allow you to run heavy websites with less resources. We offer 3 web accelerators with our hosting plans, which will enable you to increase the speed of any type of Internet site. In comparison, most web hosting providers don't provide any web accelerators or provide one, which limits your choice of web apps if you would like to employ this kind of software.
Web Accelerators in Web Hosting
When you host your websites within a web hosting account from our firm, you'll have 3 popular web accelerators to select from if you'd like to improve the sites' functionality. Memcached is employed for database-driven websites and it caches the calls and requests between a website and its database, so it can decrease the load of such Internet sites tremendously. Varnish caches entire web pages the first time a site visitor opens them and provides them from there on if the same guest opens them again. It does that much more quickly than the hosting server, so it can easily raise the loading speed of any website nearly 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time applications which works on the server and not in the visitor's world-wide web browser. It's employed for holiday accommodation booking, chats and other programs where lots of data has to be processed in real time. The availability of the accelerators depends on the hosting solution which you choose - they could come by default or as an upgrade. In each case, you shall be able to add more instances or more memory for each of them.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server solutions shall permit you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js - 3 of the most efficient web accelerators available. Memcached is used to cache database and API calls and responses, so it can boost any script-driven site. You could use it for any website built with WordPress or Joomla, for example. Varnish is also often called an HTTP reverse proxy and it is a general-purpose caching platform that may be used for any kind of sites. With regards to the content, it can improve the performance of a site up to 300%. Node.js is an innovative system used to create scalable Internet apps which process data in real time for instance booking portals. Its advantage is that different from comparable platforms, it processes info consistently and in small portions instead of waiting for the user to submit one massive piece of data. The accelerators can be enabled for any website from the Hepsia CP and you will be able to choose how many instances of every one of them shall work and how much memory they shall use.
Web Accelerators in VPS Servers
If you choose your VPS server to be integrated with the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to use Varnish, Memcached and Node.js - 3 of the most widespread web accelerators. Varnish caches websites the first time they're visited and delivers them each and every time the same individual visits them again, which will boost any kind of Internet site several times. Memcached is employed for dynamic script apps for instance Joomla and WordPress since it caches database requests and responses, as a consequence the database server will not have to process the very same webpage each and every time visitors open it in the event that the same content should be displayed. Node.js is a platform for developing real-time applications such as online games and chats. It functions much quicker than similar platforms since it processes the data in tiny portions all the time and does not wait for users to input a sizable piece of data that will require more time to be processed. The 3 web accelerators are available with all Hepsia-based VPS plans and come with several hundred MBs of dedicated memory.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers
In case you purchase a dedicated server from our company and you choose Hepsia as the hosting CP, you'll be able to employ Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your websites. All packages include several gigabytes of memory dedicated to those accelerators and the exact amount depends on the package deal you select. Node.js is employed for scalable online applications such as browser games or hotel booking and it processes the data instantly as the client enters it, which makes it considerably faster than similar platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you employ it for a script-driven site, not only will the site work faster, but also the load on the web server will decline since there will be considerably less database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it's not at all limited to databases. Instead, it caches whole web pages once a guest opens them and delivers them instead of the hosting server whenever the same visitor opens them later. Since Varnish processes web requests much quicker than any hosting server, the performance of a site using this accelerator can increase up to 300%.
