What exactly do web accelerators do? What could you do to improve your Internet site's loading speed?
A web accelerator is a software program that speeds up an Internet site usually by caching content and delivering it instead of the web server. Such programs could be used for both static and dynamic sites since there are different accelerators which can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The benefit of using a web accelerator is that a given website shall perform substantially faster without employing more system resources. On the contrary, such a site will need a lesser amount of resources to work as the web accelerator will tackle most requests rather than the hosting server. Unlike many businesses which do not offer web accelerators with their solutions or offer just one, we offer 3 different ones that'll allow you to speed up your websites regardless of their type or content.
Web Accelerators in Shared Web Hosting
If you host your sites in a shared web hosting account from our firm, you shall have three popular web accelerators to choose from if you would like to enhance the sites' functionality. Memcached is used for database-driven Internet sites and it caches the calls and requests between a site and its database, so it can easily reduce the load of such websites significantly. Varnish caches whole pages the first time a visitor opens them and delivers them from there on if the same website visitor opens them again. It does that much faster than the server, so it can easily boost the loading speed of any site approximately 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time applications that functions on the web server and not within the visitor's Internet browser. It is used for accommodation booking, chats and other applications where loads of data should be processed in real time. The availability of these accelerators depends on the hosting plan which you select - they may come by default or as an upgrade. In each case, you will be able to include more instances or more memory for each of them.
- Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated HostingThe Hepsia CP which is provided with our semi-dedicated hosting packages shall allow you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your sites. Memcached is among the most well-known accelerators because it can easily increase the speed of any API or database-driven website by caching requests and responses, thus the web server will not need to process identical requests over and over again. The platform is ideal for websites created with programs like Joomla™, Mambo or WordPress. Varnish is a highly effective accelerator that caches any sort of content and is also frequently called an HTTP reverse proxy. It caches pages which are opened by a site visitor for the first time and delivers them each time that very same site visitor opens them again. Varnish can accelerate a website several times simply because it delivers content quicker than any server. Node.js is a platform employed for scalable real-time apps such as chats, web browser games or social networks. It processes info in smaller bits as soon as a user enters something, so it operates much faster than similar platforms where users submit big portions of info which need time to be processed. You could select the number of instances and the dedicated memory for each of the 3 accelerators using your Control Panel.
- Web Accelerators in VPSIn case you obtain a virtual private server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to employ Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your Internet sites. All three accelerators are incorporated in our packages by default and offer dedicated memory of a few hundred megabytes. Node.js is used to create scalable apps where real-time interaction is necessary - booking sites, online flash games, chats, and so on. It processes the information in small pieces as the end user is entering it, as a result it functions more quickly than other platforms that wait for the end users to input one large part of information. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator that functions as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it in the event that the same guest opens the same webpage again, which could speed any website several times due to the fact that Varnish works a lot quicker than any hosting server. Memcached is used for caching API and database responses, so it's suitable for script-driven Internet sites like WordPress and Joomla™. This web accelerator can minimize the load on your hosting server as it shall reduced the number of database queries which your websites make.
- Web Accelerators in Dedicated HostingIn the event that you choose Hepsia as the hosting CP for your new dedicated server, you shall have Memcached, Varnish and Node.js at your disposal for speeding up your websites. Memcached will be able to decrease the load on the hosting server by lowering the queries your script-driven websites make as it caches database responses. This web accelerator is great for dynamic websites created with WordPress, Joomla™ and similar scripts. Varnish, which is known as an HTTP reverse proxy, caches entire pages the first time a new visitor opens them. It can be employed to accelerate any sort of Internet site because it provides the cached content much quicker than the web server every time a website visitor opens the same webpage again. You can employ Node.js for online apps that require real-time server-client interaction like online chats or booking websites. Unlike other platforms which await the user to fill everything on a form, Node.js processes the data piece by piece as the user fills each and every box, so it operates considerably faster and more effectively. All dedicated server packages feature several gigabytes of memory dedicated to these 3 web accelerators.
