A web accelerator is a server-side program that accelerates a website. Such a piece of software could function in different ways depending on the site content, but in the typical case all such apps cache content and deliver it instead of the web server. That is valid for both static and dynamic websites as the cached content can be simple text or database responses and the benefit of using a web accelerator is not just the faster loading site, but also the reduced overall load on the server. That way, you could employ a lower-end hosting solution that will also cost less while your website visitors will be able to still enjoy high browsing speeds. Handful of businesses provide web accelerators with their hosting plans and they frequently offer only one, while we offer 3 different ones that'll enable you to enhance the performance of any type of website considerably.
Web Accelerators in Shared Web Hosting
We offer three of the most popular web accelerators with our shared web hosting solutions and based on what plan you shall choose when you sign up, they may already be available or they could be an optional upgrade. Varnish is the most popular one of them and it can be employed for any type of website. It caches the pages the first time a website visitor opens them and delivers them at a considerably faster speed compared to the web server every time that a visitor opens them again. Memcached is used to cache API and database calls, so it could boost the speed of dynamic Internet sites including online stores, community forums or social networks. Node.js is used for scalable web programs and it works in real-time, which makes it ideal for server-side data processing - chats, browser games, booking portals, etcetera. You will be able to select how much memory these accelerators will employ and how many instances of each will run from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server plans shall allow you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js - 3 of the most powerful web accelerators available. Memcached is used to cache database and API calls and responses, thus it can easily accelerate any script-driven website. You could use it for any Internet site designed with WordPress or Joomla, for instance. Varnish is also known as an HTTP reverse proxy and it is a general-purpose caching platform that could be used for any type of websites. Depending on the content, it can raise the performance of a site roughly 300%. Node.js is an advanced system employed to create scalable Internet programs that process data in real time for example booking portals. Its advantage is that unlike comparable platforms, it processes data continuously and in small pieces rather than waiting for the user to submit one massive piece of data. The accelerators may be enabled for any site via the Hepsia CP and you will be able to choose how many instances of each one of them shall work and how much memory they will use.
Web Accelerators in VPS Servers
We offer Memcached, Node.js and Varnish with all VPS servers that are acquired with the Hepsia CP. Your hosting server shall also include a few hundred MBs of dedicated memory for these accelerators and the exact amount would be determined by the package deal that you choose. Memcached is used for script-driven Internet sites as it caches database responses, consequently lowering the amount of queries a script sends to its database. It could be employed for any script including WordPress or Joomla. Node.js is a powerful platform for building web programs including booking Internet sites and chats. The real-time interaction between end users and a web server is done by processing small bits of information as soon any user enters anything on the website. In contrast, other platforms wait for customers to enter a considerable amount of information before they process it, thus they work slowly. Varnish is a multi-purpose accelerator that caches whole web pages and delivers them instead of the server at a considerably quicker rate. It's also referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy and it can speed up any type of website.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers
If you get a dedicated server from our firm and you opt for Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel, you'll be able to employ Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your Internet sites. All plans include several gigabytes of memory dedicated to these accelerators and the exact amount depends on the package you choose. Node.js is employed for scalable online programs including browser games or hotel booking and it processes the information in real time as the user enters it, which makes it faster than very similar platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you employ it for a script-driven site, not simply will the site work faster, but also the load on the server will decrease because 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. Instead, it caches whole pages once a guest opens them and provides them instead of the web server each and every time the same visitor opens them afterwards. Because Varnish processes web requests faster than any server, the performance of a website using this accelerator could increase around 300%.
