Discover how making use of a Web Accelerator can substantially improve the performance of your website.
A web accelerator is a server-side program which accelerates a site. Such a piece of software can operate in different ways depending upon the website content, but in the typical case all such applications cache content and deliver it instead of the web server. That's valid for both dynamic and static sites as the cached content can be simple text or database responses and the benefit of using a web accelerator is not only the faster loading Internet site, but also the reduced overall load on the machine. That way, you'll be able to employ a lower-end hosting package which will also cost less while your website visitors can still enjoy high browsing speeds. Several firms supply web accelerators with their hosting plans and they typically offer only 1, while we offer 3 different ones that'll permit you to boost the performance of any kind of Internet site significantly.
Web Accelerators in Shared Web Hosting
If you host your Internet sites within a shared web hosting account from our firm, you will have 3 popular web accelerators to choose from if you would like to enhance the sites' functionality. Memcached is employed for database-driven sites and it caches the calls and requests between a website and its database, so it could lessen the load of such Internet sites significantly. Varnish caches whole webpages the first time a site visitor opens them and provides them from there on if the same website visitor opens them again. It does that much faster than the web server, so it can easily raise the loading speed of any site approximately 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time applications that works on the hosting server and not in the visitor's Internet browser. It is used for accommodation booking, chats and other programs where lots of data has to be processed in real time. The availability of these accelerators depends on the hosting plan which you pick - they might come by default or as an upgrade. In both cases, you shall be able to add more instances or more memory for every one of them.
- Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated HostingThe Hepsia Control Panel which comes with our semi-dedicated hosting packages will permit you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your sites. Memcached is one of the most famous accelerators as it can effortlessly increase the speed of any API or database-driven site by caching requests and responses, consequently the server won't have to process identical requests time after time. The platform is ideal for sites built with applications such as Joomla™, Mambo or WordPress. Varnish is an efficient accelerator that caches any sort of content and is also frequently called an HTTP reverse proxy. It caches webpages which are opened by a visitor for the first time and provides them each time that same site visitor opens them again. Varnish can certainly speed up a website several times because it delivers content quicker than any server. Node.js is a platform used for scalable real-time programs like chats, web browser games or social networks. It processes info in smaller bits the instant a user enters anything, therefore it works much more quickly than similar platforms where users submit sizeable parts of data which need time to be processed. You could select the number of instances and the dedicated memory for each and every one of the three accelerators via your Control Panel.
- Web Accelerators in VPS Web HostingIn the event that you obtain a virtual private server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you shall be able to employ Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your sites. All three accelerators are integrated inside our plans by default and offer dedicated memory of several hundred megabytes. Node.js is used to create scalable apps where real-time interaction is required - booking websites, online flash games, chats, etc. It processes the data in little parts as the user is entering it, as a result it operates quicker than other platforms that wait for the users to input one big bit of data. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator which works as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it when the same site visitor opens the same page again, which can speed any Internet site several times since Varnish operates more quickly than any web server. Memcached is employed for caching API and database responses, consequently it is appropriate for script-driven websites such as WordPress and Joomla™. This web accelerator can easily reduce the load on your server since it shall reduce the number of database queries which your websites make.
- Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers HostingIn case you purchase a dedicated server from our company and you choose Hepsia as the hosting CP, you will be able to use Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your Internet sites. All packages come with several gigabytes of memory dedicated to these accelerators and the exact amount depends on the plan that you choose. Node.js is employed for scalable online applications including browser games or hotel booking and it processes the info immediately as the client enters it, which makes it faster than comparable platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you use it for a script-driven Internet site, not simply will the Internet 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 limited to databases. Instead, it caches whole websites once a guest opens them and delivers them instead of the hosting server each time the same visitor opens them later on. Because Varnish processes web requests much quicker than any server, the overall performance of a website using this accelerator may increase up to 300%.
