A web accelerator is a program which accelerates a website, normally by caching its content. There are many types of accelerators, but in the general case this sort of programs cache static content or database responses and supply them in place of the hosting server, hence boosting the performance of a website considerably. The latter can be done because accelerator applications work faster than a hosting server and not only will an Internet site operate better, but the server load shall also decline, which will allow you to run heavy sites with less system resources. We provide 3 web accelerators with our hosting solutions, which will permit you to accelerate any type of Internet site. In comparison, most hosting companies don't offer any web accelerators or provide only 1, which limits your choice of web applications in the event that you'd like to employ this kind of software.
Web Accelerators in Cloud Web Hosting
We provide 3 of the most popular web accelerators along with our cloud web hosting
solutions and depending on what plan you'll select when you sign up, they may already be available or they might be an optional upgrade. Varnish is the most popular one of them and it may be employed for any type of website. It caches the pages the first time a site visitor opens them and provides them at a considerably faster speed compared to the server every time that a website visitor opens them again. Memcached is used to cache API and database calls, so it can boost the speed of dynamic Internet sites like online stores, forums or social networks. Node.js is employed for scalable web applications and it functions in real-time, which makes it suitable for server-side data processing - chats, browser games, booking portals, etcetera. You will be able to pick how much memory these accelerators will use and how many instances of each one will run from your Hepsia website hosting CP.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you go for one of our semi-dedicated server
packages, you will be able to work with Varnish, Memcached and Node.js - three efficient web accelerators. Varnish is a multi-purpose program that caches webpages the first time a website visitor opens them and delivers them instead of the server if the visitor opens them again approximately 300% faster. Memcached caches API and database calls and responses in order that the web server doesn't need to process every request, which makes it ideal for database-driven websites, for example ones built with Joomla™
or WordPress. Node.js is used to build web applications that function in real-time like chats or accommodation booking sites and it processes each bit of information the moment the user enters it as opposed to waiting for sizeable pieces of data to be accumulated. The Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with our semi-dedicated packages will permit you to pick how many instances of each accelerator will work at a time and the amount of memory they will use.
Web Accelerators in VPS Servers
We provide Memcached, Node.js and Varnish with all VPS servers
which are purchased with the Hepsia CP. Your hosting server shall also include a few hundred megabytes of dedicated memory for these accelerators and the exact amount depends on the package deal that you pick. Memcached is employed for script-driven websites because it caches database responses, thus lowering the amount of queries a script sends to its database. It could be employed for any script including WordPress or Joomla™
. Node.js is a powerful platform for building web apps for example booking Internet sites and chats. The real-time interaction between end users and a hosting server is carried out by processing small pieces of information as soon any user enters anything on the webpage. In comparison, other platforms wait for users to enter a whole lot of data before they process it, thus they work slowly. Varnish is a multi-purpose accelerator which caches whole web pages and delivers them instead of the server at a much faster rate. It's also often called an HTTP reverse proxy and it can easily speed up any sort of site.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers
In case you select Hepsia as the hosting CP for your new dedicated server, you will have Memcached, Varnish and Node.js at your disposal for accelerating your Internet sites. Memcached can easily decrease the load on the server by lowering the queries your script-driven Internet sites make as it caches database responses. This web accelerator is good for dynamic Internet sites created with WordPress, Joomla™
and very similar scripts. Varnish, which is referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy, caches whole pages the first time a new guest opens them. It can be employed to accelerate any kind of Internet site because it provides the cached content much faster than the web server every time a visitor opens the same page again. You can use Node.js for online applications that require real-time server-client interaction like online chats or booking websites. Unlike other platforms that wait for the user to enter everything on a form, Node.js processes the info piece by piece as the user fills every box, so it functions considerably quicker and more efficiently. All dedicated server
packages include several gigabytes of memory dedicated to those three web accelerators.
