Understand what exactly web accelerators are and just how you can take advantage of them to supercharge your site’s overall performance.
A web accelerator is a software program which accelerates an Internet site typically by caching content and supplying it instead of the hosting server. Such programs may be used for both static and dynamic Internet sites as there are various accelerators which can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The best thing about employing a web accelerator is that a given website will perform substantially faster without employing extra resources. Quite the opposite, this kind of a site will need much less resources to work since the web accelerator will take care of most requests rather than the hosting server. Unlike many companies which do not offer web accelerators with their solutions or offer only 1, we offer 3 different ones that'll enable you to speed up your Internet sites irrespective of their style or content.
Web Accelerators in Cloud Hosting
Our cloud hosting plans feature three web accelerators that you could use depending on the sites which you'd like to run. Memcached is used to cache database or API calls and responses, which could considerably enhance the functionality of dynamic sites. Varnish is a popular HTTP accelerator which caches web pages and provides them to the visitors much faster than the server after the first time they open them. Node.js is an event-driven platform employed for scalable real-time apps for example booking sites. Based on the Internet hosting package you pick, these 3 programs may already be included or might be optional upgrades. In either case, you shall be able to choose how many instances of every one of them shall be at your disposal and how much memory they should use. These accelerators are provided only by a few Internet hosting firms, including ours, and they can increase the speed of your web programs significantly.
- Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated HostingThe Hepsia CP that is included with our semi-dedicated hosting solutions will enable you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your websites. Memcached is among the most widely used accelerators since it can accelerate any API or database-driven website by caching requests and responses, consequently the web server shall not need to process identical requests time after time. The platform is suitable for websites built with programs like Joomla™, Mambo or WordPress. Varnish is an efficient accelerator which caches any type 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 delivers them every time that same guest opens them again. Varnish can accelerate an Internet site several times as it delivers content quicker than any server. Node.js is a platform employed for scalable real-time programs like chats, browser games or social networks. It processes info in smaller pieces the moment a user types something, therefore it functions much more quickly than similar platforms in which users submit massive chunks of data which require time to be processed. You can pick the number of instances and the dedicated memory for every one of the 3 accelerators via your CP.
- Web Accelerators in VPS Web HostingAll virtual private servers which are set up with the Hepsia CP come with Varnish, Memcached and Node.js already included and you shall receive several hundred MBs of dedicated memory for them by default. Varnish, that is also often called an HTTP reverse proxy, caches webpages the first time a site visitor opens them and delivers them in case that visitor opens them again, so the hosting server shall not have to perform any action. Because Varnish operates faster than any hosting server, a site using this accelerator shall work several times faster. Memcached is a platform which caches database calls and responses and it's employed for WordPress, Joomla™ and other script-driven programs that store their content in a database. Node.js is an effective platform for creating scalable web programs. Any information on a website that uses Node.js is processed right away, which makes it an excellent choice for dining and accommodation booking sites, web-based chats, web browser games, etcetera.
- Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers HostingIf you acquire a dedicated server from us and you choose Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel, you will be able to employ Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your Internet sites. All solutions include several gigabytes of memory dedicated to those accelerators and the specific amount depends on the package deal that you select. Node.js is used for scalable online applications such as browser games or hotel booking and it processes the information immediately as the client enters it, which makes it considerably faster than very similar platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you use it for a script-driven website, not simply will the site work faster, but also the load on the server will minimize as there shall be fewer database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it's not limited to databases. Rather, it caches entire pages once a guest opens them and delivers them instead of the hosting server each and every time the same visitor opens them afterwards. Due to the fact that Varnish processes web requests much quicker than any web server, the overall performance of a site using this accelerator could increase around 300%.
