Learn what precisely web accelerators are and exactly how you are able to take advantage of them to boost your site’s efficiency.
A web accelerator is an application that accelerates a website, usually by caching its content. There are many kinds of accelerators, but in the typical case this kind of programs cache static content or database responses and deliver them in place of the hosting server, thus boosting the performance of a site greatly. The latter is possible because accelerator apps work faster than a web server and not simply will a website work better, but the server load will also decrease, which will permit you to run heavy websites with less resources. We offer 3 web accelerators with our hosting plans, which will enable you to accelerate any sort of website. In comparison, most Internet hosting providers do not provide any web accelerators or offer only one, which limits your choice of web apps if you want to use such software.
Web Accelerators in Cloud Website Hosting
We offer 3 of the most well-known web accelerators along with our cloud website hosting solutions and based on what plan you'll pick when you sign up, they could already be available or they could be an optional upgrade. Varnish is the most well-known one of them and it can be used for any sort of site. It caches the pages the first time a website visitor opens them and provides them at a faster speed compared to the hosting server every time that a visitor opens them again. Memcached is employed to cache API and database calls, so it can boost the speed of dynamic sites like online stores, discussion boards or social networks. Node.js is employed for scalable web applications and it works in real-time, which makes it excellent for server-side data processing - chats, browser games, booking portals, etc. You'll be able to choose how much memory these accelerators will employ and how many instances of each and every one shall run from your Hepsia Internet hosting Control Panel.
- Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated HostingOur semi-dedicated hosting solutions will allow you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js - 3 of the most powerful web accelerators on the market. Memcached is employed to cache database and API calls and responses, so it can easily speed up any script-driven website. You can use it for any website created with WordPress or Joomla™, for example. Varnish is also referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy and it's a general-purpose caching platform which could be used for any sort of sites. With regards to the content, it could boost the performance of a website roughly 300%. Node.js is an innovative system used to create scalable Internet apps which process information in real time for instance booking portals. Its advantage is that unlike similar platforms, it processes info continuously and in small pieces instead of waiting for the user to submit one big piece of data. The accelerators can be enabled for any Internet site via the Hepsia Control Panel and you'll be able to pick how many instances of each of them will work and how much memory they will use.
- Web Accelerators in VPSIf you obtain a virtual private server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you shall be able to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your Internet sites. All three accelerators are included within our solutions by default and come with dedicated memory of a few hundred MBs. Node.js is used to create scalable applications where real-time interaction is necessary - booking websites, online flash games, chats, and so forth. It processes the info in little pieces as the end user is entering it, therefore it works much faster than other platforms that wait for the users to enter one massive piece of information. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator which works as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it when the same website visitor opens the same website again, which can certainly speed any Internet site several times because Varnish functions faster than any server. Memcached is used for caching API and database responses, so it's suitable for script-driven Internet sites such as WordPress and Joomla™. This web accelerator will be able to reduce the load on your hosting server as it will decrease the amount of database queries your Internet sites make.
- Web Accelerators in Dedicated HostingIn the event that you buy a dedicated server from us and you choose Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel, you shall be able to use Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your websites. All packages feature several gigabytes of memory dedicated to these accelerators and the exact amount depends on the plan you select. Node.js is employed for scalable online apps including browser games or hotel booking and it processes the information immediately as the user enters it, which makes it much faster than similar platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you use it for a script-driven site, not simply will the website speed up, but also the load on the web server will minimize because there shall be a lesser amount of database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it is not limited to databases. Instead, it caches whole pages once a website visitor opens them and provides them instead of the hosting server every time the same visitor opens them later. Because Varnish processes web requests much faster than any web server, the performance of a website using this accelerator can increase up to 300%.
