Learn what exactly web accelerators are and in what way you can benefit from them to boost your web site’s efficiency.
A web accelerator is a server-side app which accelerates an Internet site. Such a piece of software can function in different ways based on the website content, but in the typical case all such applications cache content and deliver it instead of the server. This is valid for both dynamic and static Internet sites as the cached content may be simple text or database responses and the benefit of using a web accelerator isn't just the faster loading Internet site, but also the smaller overall load on the hosting server. That way, you may use a lower-end hosting package that will also cost less while your visitors will be able to still enjoy high browsing speeds. Few companies provide web accelerators with their hosting deals and they typically offer only one, while we offer three different ones that'll allow you to boost the performance of any type of Internet site tremendously.
Web Accelerators in Shared Hosting
In case you host your sites in a shared hosting
account from our company, you will have 3 popular web accelerators to pick from if you would like to improve the sites' performance. Memcached is employed for database-driven Internet sites and it caches the calls and requests between a site and its database, so it can lessen the load of such websites significantly. Varnish caches entire web pages the first time a 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 Internet site as much as 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time apps that operates on the server and not within the visitor's Internet browser. It's employed for holiday accommodation booking, chats and other apps where lots of data has to be processed in real time. The availability of those accelerators depends upon the hosting package which you choose - they may come by default or as an upgrade. In each case, you shall be able to add more instances or more memory for every one of them.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers
You'll be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the websites hosted in your semi-dedicated server
account in accordance with the nature of the website content. Memcached, in particular, caches database requests, so it is a fantastic choice for any script app such as WordPress or Joomla™
. This way, the database server shall not have to process the same request if multiple users open a page with the same content. Varnish is comparable, but it is a general-purpose accelerator since it caches any type of content the first time a guest opens an Internet site. In case that web page is opened again by the very same guest, it shall be delivered by Varnish at a greater speed compared to the hosting server. Employing this web accelerator will lessen the load produced by your sites drastically. Last, but not least, Node.js will allow you to produce scalable web programs like hotel booking websites or chats. Its advantage over similar platforms is that it does not wait for a user to submit a large piece of info, but processes whatever the client is typing in real-time. The three web accelerators are available within the Hepsia CP and you'll be able to select how many instances of every one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they may use.
Web Accelerators in VPS Servers
We offer Memcached, Node.js and Varnish with all VPS servers
that are acquired with the Hepsia CP. Your web server shall also come with a few hundred megabytes of dedicated memory for these accelerators and the actual amount would be determined by the plan that you choose. Memcached is employed for script-driven websites because it caches database responses, thus decreasing the number of queries that a script sends to its database. It may be employed for any script like WordPress or Joomla™
. Node.js is a powerful platform for creating web programs for example booking Internet sites and chats. The real-time interaction between end users and a server is performed by processing small parts of information as soon any user enters anything on the webpage. In comparison, other platforms wait for users to enter a lot of information before they process it, as a result they work slower. Varnish is a multi-purpose accelerator which caches entire pages and provides them instead of the web server at a much faster rate. It is also often called an HTTP reverse proxy and it can effortlessly speed up any sort of Internet site.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers
In case you get 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 Internet sites. All packages feature several gigabytes of memory dedicated to these accelerators and the actual amount depends on the package deal that you select. Node.js is employed for scalable online programs like browser games or hotel booking and it processes the data immediately as the user enters it, which makes it much quicker than very similar platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you employ it for a script-driven site, not only will the Internet site work faster, but also the load on the server will decline as there will be less database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it's not at all limited to databases. Rather, it caches entire pages once a website visitor opens them and delivers them instead of the server every time the same visitor opens them later. Due to the fact that Varnish processes web requests faster than any web server, the performance of a site using this accelerator could increase around 300%.
