A web accelerator is a server-side program that accelerates a website. Such a piece of software could operate in different ways based on the site content, but in the typical case all such apps cache content and deliver it instead of the web server. That's valid for both dynamic and static Internet sites because the cached content may be simple text or database responses and the advantage of employing a web accelerator is not simply the faster loading site, but also the reduced overall load on the web server. This way, you'll be able to employ a lower-end hosting package which will also cost less while your site visitors could still enjoy superior browsing speeds. Several companies offer web accelerators with their hosting packages and they frequently offer only one, while we offer three different ones that will permit you to enhance the performance of any sort of website significantly.
Web Accelerators in Hosting
If you host your Internet sites in a hosting
account from our company, you will have three popular web accelerators to pick from if you would like to boost the sites' performance. Memcached is used for database-driven sites and it caches the calls and requests between a website and its database, so it could decrease the load of such sites tremendously. Varnish caches whole web pages the first time a site visitor opens them and provides them from there on if the same site visitor opens them again. It does that faster than the web server, so it can increase the loading speed of any site up to 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time applications that functions on the web server and not inside the visitor's web browser. It's used for holiday 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 that you pick - they could come by default or as an upgrade. In each case, you will be able to add more instances or more memory for each of them.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers
The Hepsia CP which is included with our semi-dedicated server
packages shall permit you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your Internet sites. Memcached is among the most well-known accelerators because it can speed up any API or database-driven Internet site by caching requests and responses, as a result the web server won't need to process identical requests again and again. The platform is suitable for sites built with apps like Joomla™
, Mambo or WordPress. Varnish is an effective accelerator which caches any sort of content and is also often called an HTTP reverse proxy. It caches pages which are opened by a site visitor for the first time and delivers them every time that same website visitor opens them again. Varnish can certainly speed up a site several times since it delivers content faster than any server. Node.js is a platform employed for scalable real-time programs such as chats, web browser games or social networks. It processes information in smaller bits the instant a user types anything, therefore it functions much faster than similar platforms in which users submit massive parts of information that need time to be processed. You could choose the number of instances and the dedicated memory for every one of the three accelerators using your Control Panel.
Web Accelerators in VPS Servers
We offer Memcached, Node.js and Varnish with all VPS servers
which are obtained with the Hepsia CP. Your web server will also feature a few hundred MBs of dedicated memory for these accelerators and the particular amount depends on the package deal that you choose. Memcached is used for script-driven sites because it caches database responses, thus reducing the number of queries that a script sends to its database. It could be employed for any script such as WordPress or Joomla™
. Node.js is an efficient platform for creating web apps for example booking sites and chats. The real-time interaction between users and a server is done by processing small parts of info as soon any user inputs anything on the webpage. By comparison, other platforms wait for users to input a lot of info before they process it, as a result they function slowly. Varnish is a multi-purpose accelerator which caches entire webpages and delivers them instead of the hosting server at a faster rate. It's also known as an HTTP reverse proxy and it can speed up any type of site.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers
Memcached, Node.js and Varnish are available by default with all of our dedicated servers
that are ordered with Hepsia as the Internet hosting CP. These 3 web accelerators include several gbs of dedicated memory and you can employ them to speed up any sort of site. Memcached can drastically minimize the load on the server if you have script-driven sites as it caches database responses, so it minimizes the number of database queries the server has to handle. Node.js shall permit you to create scalable programs with real-time user-server interaction like chats or dining booking Internet sites. Its advantage over very similar platforms is that it processes information the moment the user enters it, so all the data is managed faster and in small portions. Varnish caches entire webpages the first time a visitor opens them and delivers them every time the same guest opens them again, which makes it a universal accelerator for any sort of websites. Because it functions quicker than any server, it could speed up an Internet site at least several times and due to this fact, Varnish is one of the most popular web accelerators around.
