A web accelerator is a program which quickens a website, normally by caching its content. There are many kinds of accelerators, but in the typical case this sort of applications cache static content or database responses and supply them instead of the hosting server, hence boosting the performance of a website considerably. The latter can be done because accelerator applications work faster than a web server and not only will an Internet site operate better, but the server load shall also decrease, which will enable you to run heavy sites with less resources. We provide 3 web accelerators with our hosting solutions, which will enable you to increase the speed of any type of website. In comparison, most web hosting companies do not provide any web accelerators or offer just one, which limits your choice of web apps in case you would like to employ this kind of software.
Web Accelerators in Cloud Hosting
Our cloud hosting
packages include three web accelerators that you could employ depending on the websites which you'd like to run. Memcached is used to cache database or API calls and responses, which can tremendously boost the functionality of dynamic sites. Varnish is a popular HTTP accelerator which caches pages and delivers them to the site visitors much faster than the web server after the first time they open them. Node.js is an event-driven platform used for scalable real-time applications such as booking sites. Depending upon the web hosting plan you pick, these 3 apps could already be included or could be optional upgrades. In either case, you'll be able to select how many instances of every one of them will be at your disposal and what amount of memory they should employ. These accelerators are supplied only by several Internet hosting service providers, including ours, and they can increase the speed of your web programs drastically.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the sites hosted within your semi-dedicated server
account based on the nature of the website content. Memcached, for example, caches database requests, so it is a great choice for any script program like WordPress or Joomla™
. This way, the database server shall not need to process exactly the same request if a number of users open a page with the same content. Varnish is similar, but it is a general-purpose accelerator because it caches any kind of content the first time a guest opens an Internet site. If this page is opened again by the same visitor, it will be provided by Varnish at a much better speed compared to the hosting server. Using this web accelerator will lessen the load generated by your Internet sites considerably. Last, but not least, Node.js shall enable you to produce scalable web programs such as hotel booking websites or chats. Its advantage over comparable platforms is that it does not wait for a user to submit a substantial piece of information, but processes whatever the user is inputting in real-time. The three web accelerators are available within the Hepsia CP and you'll be able to choose how many instances of each one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they'll use.
Web Accelerators in VPS Servers
If you get a VPS server
with the Hepsia Control Panel, you shall be able to employ Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your Internet sites. All three accelerators are included within our plans by default and offer dedicated memory of several hundred MBs. Node.js is used to create scalable apps where real-time interaction is required - booking Internet sites, online flash games, chats, and so on. It processes the information in little bits as the user is entering it, as a result it functions more quickly than other platforms which wait for the users to enter one massive piece of information. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator which operates as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it when the same website visitor opens the same page again, which can easily speed any website several times due to the fact that Varnish operates a lot quicker than any server. Memcached is used for caching API and database responses, consequently it is suitable for script-driven sites such as WordPress and Joomla™
. This web accelerator can minimize the load on your server because it'll decrease the number of database queries which your websites make.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers
In the event that you acquire a dedicated server
from us and you choose Hepsia as the hosting CP, you shall be able to employ Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your sites. All plans feature several gigabytes of memory dedicated to those accelerators and the actual amount depends on the plan you select. Node.js is used for scalable online applications including browser games or hotel booking and it processes the information immediately as the user enters it, which makes it considerably faster than very similar platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you employ it for a script-driven website, not simply will the site work faster, but also the load on the server will decrease as there shall be a lesser amount of database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it's not at all limited to databases. Rather, it caches entire web pages once a guest opens them and provides them instead of the server whenever the same visitor opens them afterwards. Since Varnish processes web requests much quicker than any web server, the performance of a site using this accelerator can increase up to 300%.
