A web accelerator is a software program that speeds up an Internet site typically by caching content and delivering it instead of the server. Such applications could be employed for both static and dynamic websites because there are different accelerators that can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The benefit of using a web accelerator is that a given Internet site shall perform significantly faster without employing additional resources. Just the opposite, this type of a site will require significantly less resources to work because the web accelerator will handle most requests instead of the server. In contrast to many companies which don't offer web accelerators with their plans or offer just one, we offer three different ones that'll permit you to speed up your websites whatever their style or content.
Web Accelerators in Shared Website Hosting
If you host your websites in a shared website hosting
account from us, you will have three popular web accelerators to select from if you'd like to enhance the sites' performance. Memcached is used for database-driven websites and it caches the calls and requests between a website and its database, so it can reduce the load of such websites significantly. Varnish caches whole web pages the first time a website visitor opens them and delivers them from there on if the same guest opens them again. It does that faster than the server, so it can increase the loading speed of any website nearly 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time apps that functions on the server and not inside the visitor's Internet browser. It's employed for accommodation booking, chats and other applications where loads of data should be processed in real time. The availability of those accelerators depends upon the hosting plan that you select - they may come by default or as an upgrade. In both cases, you'll be able to add more instances or more memory for every one of them.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you opt for one of our semi-dedicated server
packages, you'll be able to employ Varnish, Memcached and Node.js - 3 powerful web accelerators. Varnish is a multi-purpose program that caches pages the first time a visitor opens them and delivers them instead of the web server if the site visitor opens them again up to 300% more quickly. Memcached caches API and database calls and responses so the server doesn't need to process every request, which makes it ideal for database-driven websites, for example ones developed with Joomla™
or WordPress. Node.js is used to produce web programs that function in real-time including chats or accommodation booking sites and it processes each and every bit of information the moment the user types it rather than waiting for big chunks of information to be accumulated. The Hepsia CP which is provided with our semi-dedicated plans will permit you to choose how many instances of every accelerator shall work at a time and what amount of memory they'll use.
Web Accelerators in VPS Servers
All VPS servers
which are integrated with the Hepsia CP come with Varnish, Memcached and Node.js already included and you'll get several hundred MBs of dedicated memory for them by default. Varnish, which is also referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy, caches webpages the first time a website visitor opens them and provides them if that guest opens them again, therefore the hosting server shall not have to perform any action. As Varnish works faster than any server, a website using this accelerator shall operate several times faster. Memcached is a platform that caches database calls and responses and it's employed for WordPress, Joomla™
and other script-driven apps which store their content inside a database. Node.js is an effective platform for building scalable web programs. Any information on an Internet site that employs Node.js is processed in real time, making it a great choice for dining and accommodation booking websites, web-based chats, browser games, and so forth.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers
Memcached, Node.js and Varnish are provided by default with all of our dedicated servers
that are ordered with Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel. These three web accelerators feature several gbs of dedicated memory and you can employ them to speed up any type of Internet site. Memcached can significantly decrease the load on the web server if you have script-driven Internet sites because it caches database responses, therefore it minimizes the amount of database queries the server has to handle. Node.js will enable you to create scalable apps with real-time user-server interaction including chats or dining booking Internet sites. Its advantage over very similar platforms is that it processes data the moment the user enters it, so all the info is taken care of quicker and in small parts. Varnish caches whole webpages the first time a visitor opens them and delivers them each and every time the same website visitor opens them again, that makes it a universal accelerator for any type of sites. As it operates quicker than any server, it can speed up a site at least several times and because of this, Varnish is amongst the most widely used web accelerators available on the market.
