A web accelerator is a server-side application that accelerates an Internet site. Such a piece of software can operate in different ways based on the site content, but in the general situation all such programs cache content and deliver it instead of the server. This is valid for both static and dynamic websites because the cached content could be simple text or database responses and the reward of employing a web accelerator isn't simply the faster loading site, but also the reduced overall load on the machine. That way, you'll be able to employ a lower-end hosting solution which will also cost less while your site visitors will be able to still enjoy fast browsing speeds. Several businesses offer web accelerators with their hosting packages and they frequently offer just one, while we offer three different ones that will enable you to improve the performance of any kind of website substantially.
Web Accelerators in Cloud Hosting
If you buy one of our cloud hosting plans, you'll have 3 well-known web accelerators at your disposal and you shall be able to access them directly using the Hepsia CP that comes with our packages. Varnish is one of the most popular ones and it can significantly speed up any Internet site because it caches the web pages which a visitor opens for the first time and delivers them each time that visitor opens them again. Given that Varnish operates faster than any server, the loading speed of any Internet site using the accelerator will improve significantly. Memcached is used to cache database and API calls and responses between an Internet site visitor and a server, so it's much like Varnish, but is employed primarily for database-driven websites. Considering that the Internet site will connect to its database much less, the overall web server load will be decreased considerably. The last accelerator, Node.js, is used for scalable online programs such as chats and booking websites because it processes info in real time the instant it is entered on the site by the users. Based on the plan you pick, these accelerators might be available or might be an optional upgrade.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the sites hosted in your semi-dedicated server account based on the nature of the site content. Memcached, for example, caches database requests, therefore it's an excellent option for any script app like WordPress or Joomla. That way, the database hosting server shall not have to process exactly the same request if a number of users open a website with the same content. Varnish is very similar, but it's a general-purpose accelerator because it caches any type of content the first time a website visitor opens a page. If this webpage is opened again by the same website visitor, it shall be provided by Varnish at a greater speed compared to the web server. Employing this web accelerator can decrease the load produced by your websites tremendously. Last, but not least, Node.js will allow you to build scalable web applications like hotel booking sites or chats. Its advantage over comparable platforms is that it doesn't wait for a client to submit a sizable piece of information, but processes whatever the user is typing in real-time. The three web accelerators are available in the Hepsia CP and you will be able to pick how many instances of each one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they can use.
Web Accelerators in VPS Servers
All VPS servers which are set up with the Hepsia Control Panel come with Varnish, Memcached and Node.js already included and you'll get several hundred megabytes of dedicated memory for them by default. Varnish, that is also known as an HTTP reverse proxy, caches web pages the first time a website visitor opens them and provides them if that guest opens them again, so the server won't have to perform any action. As Varnish functions considerably faster than any hosting server, an Internet site employing this accelerator shall work several times faster. Memcached is a platform that caches database calls and responses and it's used for WordPress, Joomla and other script-driven programs which store their content within a database. Node.js is an effective platform for developing scalable web programs. Any data on an Internet site that employs Node.js is processed instantly, which makes it a great choice for dining and accommodation booking sites, web-based chats, browser games, etcetera.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers
In case you buy a dedicated server from us and you opt for Hepsia as the hosting CP, you'll be able to use Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your sites. All packages come with several gigabytes of memory dedicated to those accelerators and the specific amount depends on the package deal you choose. Node.js is employed for scalable online applications such as browser games or hotel booking and it processes the data in real time as the client enters it, which makes it much quicker than comparable platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you employ it for a script-driven website, not only will the site speed up, but also the load on the server will minimize since there will be considerably less database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it is not limited to databases. Instead, it caches entire websites once a visitor opens them and provides them instead of the server whenever the same visitor opens them afterwards. Since Varnish processes web requests much faster than any web server, the efficiency of an Internet site using this accelerator can increase around 300%.
