A web accelerator is a software that quickens a site, usually by caching its content. There are many sorts of accelerators, but in the typical case this sort of programs cache static content or database responses and supply them in lieu of the web server, thus boosting the performance of a site considerably. The latter can be done because accelerator applications work faster than a server and not simply will a site function better, but the server load will also minimize, which will enable you to run heavy websites with less system resources. We offer 3 web accelerators with our hosting solutions, which will enable you to increase the speed of any type of website. In comparison, most Internet hosting companies 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 Website Hosting
In case you host your sites within a website hosting account from our firm, you shall have three popular web accelerators to choose from if you would like to boost 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 sites drastically. Varnish caches entire pages the first time a visitor opens them and delivers them from there on if the same guest opens them again. It does that much faster than the web server, so it can easily raise the loading speed of any Internet site approximately 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time programs that functions on the server and not in the visitor's Internet browser. It's used for accommodation booking, chats and other apps where lots of data has to be processed in real time. The availability of the accelerators depends upon the hosting package that you select - they may come by default or as an upgrade. In both cases, you will be able to add more instances or more memory for every one of them.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers
You shall be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the websites hosted in your semi-dedicated server account depending on the nature of the site content. Memcached, for instance, caches database requests, therefore it's a superb option for any script program such as WordPress or Joomla. That way, the database web server shall not have to process the very same request if a number of users open a site with the same content. Varnish is comparable, but it's a general-purpose accelerator since it caches any kind of content the first time a guest opens an Internet site. If that webpage is opened again by the exact same guest, it shall be provided by Varnish at a much better speed compared to the server. Using this web accelerator will minimize the load created by your Internet sites significantly. Last, but not least, Node.js will permit you to produce scalable web programs like hotel booking websites or chats. Its advantage over very similar platforms is that it does not wait for a customer to submit a sizable piece of info, but processes whatever the user is inputting in real-time. The three web accelerators are available within the Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to select how many instances of every one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they can employ.
Web Accelerators in VPS Servers
In case you get a VPS server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you shall be able to employ Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your Internet sites. All 3 accelerators are incorporated within our packages by default and offer dedicated memory of several hundred megabytes. Node.js is employed to create scalable programs where real-time interaction is required - booking Internet sites, online games, chats, etcetera. It processes the information in small portions as the user is entering it, as a result it operates more quickly than other platforms which wait for the users to input one big bit of info. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator that functions as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it in the event that the same visitor opens the same website again, which could speed any Internet site several times as Varnish functions faster than any web server. Memcached is used for caching API and database responses, consequently it's appropriate for script-driven websites like WordPress and Joomla. This web accelerator can easily decrease the load on your web server because it will decrease the amount of database queries your sites make.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers
Memcached, Varnish and Node.js are offered with all dedicated servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and in accordance with the package deal that you choose, you will also have several gigabytes of dedicated memory for them. Memcached shall lessen the server load by lowering the amount of queries that need to be addressed because it caches database calls and responses. You'll be able to use it on every website which uses an API or a database - for instance, any website designed with WordPress or Joomla. Varnish can enhance the performance of any kind of website by caching whole pages the first time a visitor opens them. The accelerator delivers the web pages if the same visitor opens them later and given that it does that faster than the server, the visitor will be able to look through your Internet site at least several times faster. That's why Varnish is oftentimes categorised as an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is an advanced platform that'll allow you to build booking websites, web chats and other applications in which real-time server-user interaction is required. It processes the information in small portions as the client fills different boxes and does not wait for all boxes to be filled and processed as one large piece of information, which makes Node.js way quicker than similar apps.
