A web accelerator is a software which speeds up a website, typically by caching its content. There are many sorts of accelerators, but in the general case such programs cache static content or database responses and provide them in place of the web server, hence boosting the performance of a website noticeably. The latter can be done because accelerator apps work faster than a server and not only will a website operate better, but the server load will also decrease, which will allow you to run heavy sites with less resources. We provide 3 web accelerators with our hosting packages, which will allow you to accelerate any kind of site. In comparison, most Internet hosting service providers don't provide any web accelerators or provide only 1, which limits your choice of web apps in case you would like to employ this kind of software.
Web Accelerators in Shared Hosting
When you host your Internet sites within a shared hosting account from our company, you'll have three popular web accelerators to choose from if you'd like to boost the sites' functionality. Memcached is used for database-driven websites and it caches the calls and requests between a website and its database, so it can easily decrease the load of such websites significantly. Varnish caches whole pages the first time a website visitor opens them and provides them from there on if the same site visitor opens them again. It does that faster than the hosting server, so it can easily raise the loading speed of any website as much as 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time applications which functions on the web server and not in the visitor's web browser. It's used for accommodation booking, chats and other apps where a lot of data should be processed in real time. The availability of these accelerators depends on the hosting plan which you choose - they might come by default or as an upgrade. In each case, you shall be able to add more instances or more memory for every one of them.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You'll be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the Internet sites hosted in your semi-dedicated hosting account in accordance with the nature of the site content. Memcached, for example, caches database requests, so it is a great option for any script program like WordPress or Joomla. This way, the database hosting server shall not have to process the very same request if a number of users open a site with the same content. Varnish is similar, but it is a general-purpose accelerator as it caches any type of content the first time a guest opens a page. If this webpage is opened again by the exact same website visitor, it will be delivered by Varnish at a much better speed compared to the hosting server. Employing this web accelerator shall decrease the load produced by your Internet sites drastically. Last, but not least, Node.js will enable you to produce scalable web programs like hotel booking websites or chats. Its advantage over similar platforms is that it does not wait for a customer to submit a sizable piece of information, but processes whatever the customer is entering in real-time. The 3 web accelerators are available within the Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to select how many instances of each one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they can employ.
Web Accelerators in VPS
All virtual private servers which are integrated with the Hepsia CP come with Varnish, Memcached and Node.js already included and you'll receive several hundred MBs of dedicated memory for them by default. Varnish, which is also known as an HTTP reverse proxy, caches pages the first time a website visitor opens them and delivers them when that guest opens them again, therefore the web server will not need to perform any action. Since Varnish functions much quicker than any hosting server, a site using this accelerator shall function several times quicker. Memcached is a platform which caches database calls and responses and it's used for WordPress, Joomla and other script-driven applications that store their content within a database. Node.js is an effective platform for developing scalable web applications. Any information on a website that uses Node.js is processed instantly, which makes it a great choice for dining and accommodation booking websites, web-based chats, Internet browser games, etcetera.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Hosting
Memcached, Varnish and Node.js are provided with all dedicated servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and depending on the plan which you pick, you'll also have several gbs of dedicated memory for them. Memcached shall minimize the server load by lowering the amount of queries that need to be handled as it caches database calls and responses. You shall be able to use it on every website which uses an API or a database - for example, any website developed with WordPress or Joomla. Varnish can improve the performance of any sort of website by caching whole webpages the first time a guest opens them. The accelerator provides the pages if the exact same visitor opens them later and since it does that much faster than the web server, the visitor will be able to look through your Internet site at least a few times faster. This is why Varnish is often referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is an advanced platform that will allow you to build booking websites, web chats and other apps in which real-time server-user interaction is required. It processes the info in small parts as the client fills different boxes and doesn't wait for all boxes to be filled and processed as one substantial chunk of information, which makes Node.js considerably faster than similar apps.
