Understand what precisely web accelerators are and how you are able to take full advantage of them to supercharge your web site’s overall performance.
A web accelerator is a server-side application which accelerates an Internet site. Such a piece of software can function in different ways depending upon the website content, but in the general situation all such apps cache content and deliver it instead of the web server. That is valid for both static and dynamic Internet sites since the cached content can be simple text or database responses and the advantage of employing a web accelerator is not only the faster loading site, but also the lessened overall load on the server. That way, you can use a lower-end hosting plan that will also cost less while your website visitors can still enjoy superior browsing speeds. Few businesses provide web accelerators with their hosting plans and they typically offer just 1, while we offer three different ones which will enable you to improve the performance of any type of website tremendously.
Web Accelerators in Shared Hosting
In case you purchase one of our shared hosting plans, you shall have 3 popular web accelerators at your disposal and you'll be able to access them directly through the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with our plans. Varnish is one of the most popular ones and it could tremendously accelerate any website as it caches the web pages that a website visitor opens for the first time and delivers them every time that guest opens them again. Given that Varnish functions noticeably faster than any hosting server, the loading speed of any site using the accelerator will improve considerably. Memcached is employed to cache database and API calls and responses between a site visitor and a server, so it is much like Varnish, but is employed mainly for database-driven Internet sites. Because the site will connect to its database significantly less, the overall server load shall be reduced notably. The 3rd accelerator, Node.js, is used for scalable online programs such as chats and booking websites because it processes data in real time as soon as it is entered on the webpage by the users. Depending on the plan you select, these accelerators may be available or could be an optional upgrade.
- Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated ServersThe Hepsia Control Panel which comes with our semi-dedicated server plans shall allow you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your Internet sites. Memcached is among the most popular accelerators since it can speed up any API or database-driven site by caching requests and responses, therefore the web server won't need to process identical requests over and over again. The platform is suitable for websites created with apps such as Joomla™, Mambo or WordPress. Varnish is an efficient accelerator that caches any sort of content and is also often called an HTTP reverse proxy. It caches pages which are opened by a website visitor for the first time and provides them each time that same site visitor opens them again. Varnish can certainly speed up an Internet site several times since it delivers content quicker than any web server. Node.js is a platform used for scalable real-time programs like chats, browser games or social networks. It processes data in small parts the instant a user types something, so it operates considerably faster than similar platforms in which users submit large parts of info that require time to be processed. You'll be able to pick the number of instances and the dedicated memory for every one of the 3 accelerators through your CP.
- Web Accelerators in VPS ServersAll VPS servers that are incorporated with the Hepsia CP come with Varnish, Memcached and Node.js already included and you shall receive several hundred megabytes of dedicated memory for them by default. Varnish, which is also often called an HTTP reverse proxy, caches pages the first time a site visitor opens them and provides them if that visitor opens them again, so the web server won't have to perform any action. As Varnish operates much faster than any hosting server, a site using this accelerator will operate several times quicker. Memcached is a platform which caches database calls and responses and it is employed for WordPress, Joomla™ and other script-driven programs that store their content inside a database. Node.js is a highly effective platform for building scalable web applications. Any info on a site which employs Node.js is processed right away, making it a superb choice for dining and accommodation booking Internet sites, web-based chats, web browser games, and so on.
- Web Accelerators in Dedicated ServersMemcached, Node.js and Varnish are offered by default with all of our dedicated servers which are ordered with Hepsia as the web hosting Control Panel. These three web accelerators feature several gigabytes of dedicated memory and you can employ them to speed up any sort of Internet site. Memcached can significantly minimize the load on the server if you have script-driven websites as it caches database responses, so it lessens the number of database queries the web server has to tackle. Node.js shall enable you to build scalable programs with real-time user-server interaction including chats or dining booking sites. Its advantage over similar platforms is that it processes information the moment the end user enters it, so all the info is taken care of faster and in small portions. Varnish caches whole pages the first time a website visitor opens them and provides them every time the same website visitor opens them again, that makes it a universal accelerator for any type of websites. Since it operates faster than any hosting server, it can speed up a site at least several times and because of this, Varnish is amongst the most widely used web accelerators available on the market.
