Just what do web accelerators do? What could you do in order to improve your site's load speed?
A web accelerator is a software application that speeds up an Internet site generally by caching content and providing it instead of the hosting server. Such apps may be employed for both static and dynamic sites since there are a variety of accelerators which can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The advantage of employing a web accelerator is that a given Internet site shall perform noticeably faster without employing extra resources. Quite the opposite, such a site will demand much less resources to operate since the web accelerator will handle most requests instead of the server. Contrary to many companies which don't offer web accelerators with their solutions or offer only one, we offer 3 different ones that will permit you to speed up your websites whatever their style or content.
Web Accelerators in Shared Web Hosting
Our shared web hosting packages feature three web accelerators which you will be able to use depending on the sites which you'd like to run. Memcached is employed to cache database or API calls and responses, which can considerably improve the efficiency of dynamic Internet sites. Varnish is a popular HTTP accelerator which caches web pages and provides them to the website visitors considerably faster than the web server after the first time they open them. Node.js is an event-driven platform employed for scalable real-time programs including booking websites. Depending on the Internet hosting plan you select, these three apps could already be included or might be optional upgrades. In any case, you'll be able to select how many instances of each of them shall be at your disposal and how much memory they should use. These accelerators are supplied only by a few Internet hosting providers, including ours, and they can easily increase the speed of your web applications considerably.
- Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated ServersOur semi-dedicated server plans will allow you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js - three of the most efficient web accelerators on the market. Memcached is employed to cache database and API calls and responses, thus it could easily accelerate any script-driven site. You may use it for any website designed with WordPress or Joomla™, for instance. Varnish is also often called an HTTP reverse proxy and it's a general-purpose caching platform which could be used for any sort of websites. Based on the content, it may increase the performance of an Internet site approximately 300%. Node.js is a sophisticated system employed to create scalable Internet applications which process info in real time such as booking portals. Its advantage is that in contrast to similar platforms, it processes info consistently and in small bits rather than waiting for the user to submit one massive piece of data. The accelerators can be enabled for any Internet site from the Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to select how many instances of each one of them will work and how much memory they shall use.
- Web Accelerators in VPS ServersIn case you get a VPS server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to employ Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your Internet sites. All 3 accelerators are included in our plans by default and offer dedicated memory of several hundred megabytes. Node.js is employed to create scalable apps where real-time interaction is necessary - booking websites, online games, chats, and so forth. It processes the info in small parts as the user is entering it, as a result it operates quicker than other platforms which wait for the users to submit one sizeable piece of information. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator which operates as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it in the event that the same guest opens the same website again, which can speed any website several times because Varnish operates a lot quicker than any web server. Memcached is employed for caching API and database responses, so it's suitable for script-driven Internet sites like WordPress and Joomla™. This web accelerator can easily decrease the load on your web server as it'll lower the number of database queries which your sites make.
- Web Accelerators in Dedicated ServersMemcached, Node.js and Varnish are available by default with all of our dedicated servers that are ordered with Hepsia as the website hosting CP. These 3 web accelerators feature several gbs of dedicated memory and you could use them to speed up any sort of Internet site. Memcached can greatly lessen the load on the server if you have script-driven websites since it caches database responses, therefore it decreases the amount of database queries that the server has to handle. Node.js will permit you to create scalable apps with real-time user-server interaction like chats or dining booking websites. Its advantage over similar platforms is that it processes information the moment the end user enters it, so all the information is handled swifter and in small bits. Varnish caches whole pages the first time a website visitor opens them and provides them each time the same website visitor opens them again, that makes it a universal accelerator for any sort of sites. Because it operates quicker than any hosting server, it can speed up a website at least several times and as a result, Varnish is one of the most widely used web accelerators available on the market.
