A web accelerator is a software which speeds up a website, usually by caching its content. There are many types of accelerators, but in the common case such apps cache static content or database responses and supply them instead of the hosting server, hence increasing the performance of an Internet site drastically. The latter can be done because accelerator apps work faster than a web server and not simply will a site work better, but the server load will also decline, which will allow you to run heavy websites with less system resources. We provide 3 web accelerators with our hosting plans, which will permit you to increase the speed of any type of website. In comparison, most hosting providers do not offer any web accelerators or offer one, which limits your choice of web applications in case you want to use this kind of software.
Web Accelerators in Shared Web Hosting
When you get one of our shared web hosting
packages, you'll have 3 popular web accelerators at your disposal and you will be able to access them directly through the Hepsia CP that comes with our packages. Varnish is one of the most widely used ones and it can considerably increase the speed of any Internet site since it caches the web pages which a site visitor opens for the first time and provides them each and every time that website visitor opens them again. Because Varnish works considerably faster than any server, the loading speed of any website using the accelerator will improve noticeably. Memcached is used to cache database and API calls and responses between a site visitor and a hosting server, so it is comparable to Varnish, but is used largely for database-driven sites. Since the website will connect to its database much less, the overall web server load shall be decreased significantly. The 3rd accelerator, Node.js, is used for scalable online apps including chats and booking sites since it processes info in real time the instant it is entered on the webpage by the users. Depending on the plan you pick, these accelerators might be available or may be an optional upgrade.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server
solutions shall permit you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js - three of the most efficient web accelerators available on the market. Memcached is employed to cache database and API calls and responses, therefore it could easily speed up any script-driven Internet site. You can use it for any Internet site built with WordPress or Joomla™
, for instance. Varnish is also often called an HTTP reverse proxy and it's a general-purpose caching platform that could be employed for any sort of sites. Based on the content, it can easily raise the performance of an Internet site up to 300%. Node.js is a sophisticated system employed to build scalable Internet programs that process data in real time for example booking portals. Its advantage is that in contrast to comparable platforms, it processes data constantly and in small bits as opposed to waiting for the user to submit one large piece of data. The accelerators may be enabled for any website from the Hepsia CP and you shall be able to select how many instances of every one of them will work and how much memory they'll use.
Web Accelerators in VPS Servers
All VPS servers
that are integrated with the Hepsia CP come with Varnish, Memcached and Node.js already included and you shall have several hundred megabytes of dedicated memory for them by default. Varnish, which is also often called an HTTP reverse proxy, caches webpages the first time a guest opens them and provides them when that visitor opens them again, therefore the hosting server will not need to perform any action. Since Varnish operates faster than any hosting server, an Internet site employing this accelerator shall function several times swifter. Memcached is a platform that caches database calls and responses and it is used for WordPress, Joomla™
and other script-driven apps which store their content in a database. Node.js is an efficient platform for creating scalable web programs. Any information on an Internet site which uses Node.js is processed instantly, making it a fantastic choice for dining and accommodation booking sites, web-based chats, Internet browser games, etc.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers
Memcached, Node.js and Varnish are offered by default with all of our dedicated servers
that are ordered with Hepsia as the web hosting Control Panel. These 3 web accelerators come with several gigabytes of dedicated memory and you can employ them to speed up any type of site. Memcached can drastically reduce the load on the server if you have script-driven sites since it caches database responses, so it minimizes the amount of database queries which the web server has to tackle. Node.js shall permit you to create scalable programs with real-time user-server interaction such as chats or dining booking websites. Its advantage over comparable platforms is that it processes information the moment the user enters it, so all the info is managed swifter and in small bits. Varnish caches entire webpages the first time a website visitor opens them and provides them each and every time the same visitor opens them again, that makes it a universal accelerator for any kind of Internet sites. Because it works faster than any web server, it can speed up a website at least several times and because of this, Varnish is amongst the most popular web accelerators out there.
