What precisely do web accelerators do? What can you do to increase your website's load speed?
A web accelerator is a software program that accelerates a website generally by caching content and delivering it instead of the web server. Such apps can be employed for both dynamic and static Internet sites as there are various accelerators which can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The advantage of employing a web accelerator is that a given website shall perform significantly faster without employing extra system resources. Just the opposite, such a site will demand much less resources to work since the web accelerator will tackle most requests instead of the web server. Unlike many companies that do not offer web accelerators with their packages or offer just one, we offer three different ones that'll enable you to speed up your Internet sites whatever their kind or content.
Web Accelerators in Cloud Hosting
Our cloud hosting plans come with three web accelerators that you can employ depending on the sites that you would like to run. Memcached is used to cache database or API calls and responses, which can drastically boost the performance of dynamic websites. Varnish is a popular HTTP accelerator that caches pages and delivers them to the visitors much quicker than the web server after the first time they open them. Node.js is an event-driven platform used for scalable real-time apps including booking sites. Based on the web hosting plan you pick, these three applications could already be included or might be optional upgrades. Regardless, you shall be able to pick how many instances of every one of them will be at your disposal and what amount of memory they should employ. These accelerators are provided only by a handful of web hosting companies, including ours, and they can increase the speed of your web apps substantially.
- Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated ServersThe Hepsia Control Panel that is included with our semi-dedicated server packages shall permit you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your sites. Memcached is one of the most well-known accelerators since it can effortlessly speed up any API or database-driven Internet site by caching requests and responses, therefore the web server shall not need to process identical requests again and again. The platform is suitable for websites developed with programs like Joomla™, Mambo or WordPress. Varnish is a highly effective accelerator that caches any sort of content and is also often called an HTTP reverse proxy. It caches web pages that are opened by a website visitor for the first time and delivers them each and every time that very same guest opens them again. Varnish can easily accelerate a website several times simply because it delivers content quicker than any hosting server. Node.js is a platform employed for scalable real-time programs like chats, Internet browser games or social networks. It processes data in smaller parts the instant a user enters something, therefore it works much faster than similar platforms where users submit massive parts of information which require time to be processed. You'll be able to select the number of instances and the dedicated memory for each and every one of the 3 accelerators using your Control Panel.
- Web Accelerators in VPS ServersAll VPS servers which are integrated with the Hepsia CP come with Varnish, Memcached and Node.js already included and you shall have several hundred megabytes of dedicated memory for them by default. Varnish, that's also referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy, caches webpages the first time a guest opens them and provides them in case that guest opens them again, so the hosting server will not have to perform any action. Because Varnish operates much faster than any hosting server, a site using this accelerator shall function several times swifter. Memcached is a platform which caches database calls and responses and it is employed for WordPress, Joomla™ and other script-driven applications which store their content within a database. Node.js is a powerful platform for developing scalable web applications. Any info on a site which employs Node.js is processed right away, which makes it an excellent choice for dining and accommodation booking sites, web-based chats, Internet browser games, etc.
- Web Accelerators in Dedicated ServersIn the event that you choose Hepsia as the hosting CP for your new dedicated server, you shall have Memcached, Varnish and Node.js readily available for accelerating your Internet sites. Memcached can easily minimize the load on the server by lowering the queries your script-driven sites make because it caches database responses. This web accelerator is ideal for dynamic Internet sites designed with WordPress, Joomla™ and similar scripts. Varnish, which is known as an HTTP reverse proxy, caches whole websites the first time a new website visitor opens them. It may be employed to accelerate any type of site because it delivers the cached content faster than the hosting server each time a guest opens the same site again. You can use Node.js for online apps which require real-time server-client interaction such as online chats or booking websites. Different from other platforms that await the user to enter everything on a form, Node.js processes the information piece by piece as the user fills each box, so it works faster and more effectively. All dedicated server solutions feature several gigabytes of memory dedicated to those 3 web accelerators.
